Unfotunately, it's just a big dark blur. I'll reserve judgement until I see a better picture. At this point, I'm not impressed. Looks too small.

Looks good to me. Unfortunatly it doesn't look like he'll include his dais. But I'll wait to we see for sure. As for being too small, Jabba is not really that big of an alien. It's basically due to the dais that he's on in the movie that makes him look bigger then he is. Remember Bib leans down to whisper in Jabba's ear. The figure is definatly partially based on the Jabba Glob figure, which was the best mold of Jabba to date. :)

Yeah, it doesn't look bad but the picture does, so maybe it will be awesome with some hi res pics. Would you guys like a rehash of the old Dais? It's not like Hasbro would have to put much work into it. I know, how about the Dais coming in another deluxe set. With a back ground and a new Bib and laying Slave Leia? Since the Green Goo 3PO is comimg, why not?

I like it. Jabba plus his pipe and bowl, what more can you expect for $10.

I'm already excitied to see a better quality picture of this. Although it definitely looks like ROTJ Jabba, so many of us can breath a sigh of relief.

Now if Jabba only had a certain larger dancer to be entertained by...

Hard to tell from the blurry pic, but it looks like it will be pretty cool to me.

I bet they don't include the dias, looks like this Jabba was made go with the Jabba's palace cardboard playset that came out a few years ago (forget what it was called).

It looks ridiculous. Ihope Hasbro is just kidding around with us, a late April fools day gag or something. The only reason I will get it is because my ROTJ Jabba has no accesories.

From what I can see, it looks great. Jabba Glob was the correct size, put another figure next to him and you'll see what I mean. I wish he came with the dais and a sitting Salacious Crumb, but he's still damn cool. :)

I still have my older figure that came with his dais, and a salacious crumb figure. This one, while the figure looks good, he still needs his little platform to lift him to his high position in the underworld.

Obi-Dan Kenobi
09-21-2003, 09:03 PM
I'm pretty sure I heard, either at the panel at Wizard World Chicago, or on the web somewhere, that Hasbro has already confirmed there will be no dais with this figure. But if there are still a few accessories, I'd say it's still worth it. Maybe the dais could come in sections with the figures from the Jabba's palace wave? I can dream, can't I?:rolleyes::D

Looks great to me! I can't wait to add this Jabba to my collection. So far, I have no POTF2 or EpI or glob Jabbas. I passed on these because I am awaiting the "definitive" Jabba sculpt. I hope they get it right this time!!! :)

If you have a digital camera, snap us a pic so we can get a good look at him. Any info at all about the figure. It's clear it's a Jabba Glob body, with a new upper half. Hopefully they remember to put on his tattoo. :)

Sorry, all I've got is a webcam, and it doesn't take very good pics at all.

I took a headshot of him, it's the best pic I can get, sorry.

All they say about Jabba is that he'll be in the second wave of Ultra figures and will tie in with Wave 3 of the basic figures (Jabba's Palace)

Edit: Had to remove the pic, sorry guys.

Cool, thanks. The head looks like it's definatly new. It definatly doesn't look like a modified Jabba Glob head. So that's good to see. Can't wait for him to come out. :)

JJB, his tattoo? What tattoo? I don't remember a tattoo? :confused:

Just kidding! I was just acting like a Hasbro representative. Now to think of it, they will probably forget his tattoo. I hope someone at Hasbro is reading this! Oh, thanks for the head-shot photo. Jabba is looking great!!!!!!

From what I recall reading of the interview with Hasbro when they were talking about the Jabba, I don't think it will have anything of the like. They did say the tongue would be able to be removed from the mouth, and the pipe from Jabba's hookah could go in instead. :)

The head picture looks great. Glad to see that they were liberal with the drool. Nice and slimy. Looks even better than the Jabba Glob. Can't wait to see the rest of the figure.

Who else is supposed to be in the wave of Jabba's palace figures?

Battle Droid

Rappertunie I believe, is one of them.

Well, there is some confusion about this. Since the Tatooine Wave is the one right before this. But so far here's what's confirmed and what's rumored. The asteriks designate the rumored ones. I think we'll still likely see Bubo packed with Rappertunie, though that's been argued in the past. :)

This Jabba looks like the Glob version. Only better painted. Man, I wish he'd come w/ a voice chip. I'd like to hear Jabba utter his famous Bantha foodoo line to Solo. And all his other garbled curses, especially after Luke killed the Rancor.
Honestly, Jabba didn't really move that much in the film, but he did talked a lot. At least till he got choked. Oh, and choking sounds are cool, too. With bulging eyes and hanging tongue features. Jabba w/ a voice chip, plus accessories up the yin-yang, and you got the Ultimate Jabba Playset. YEAHHHH!!! :D

Well I hope Bubo finally make sit into figure form somehow, not to mention Yarna Da'l Gargan.

The German collectors site 4-inches.com has a close-up pic of the new ROTJ Jabba figure. Although this looks pretty good, it's taken at an angle, so remember that the proportions are a little off.

Because this is copyrighted material, the link has been removed. However, you can go to the site yourself for a look (just click on anything that says "Jabba," because the text is all in German).

For those just dying to see the pic--patience! If you get the SW Insider, you will see it soon enough! Plus, Hasbro will most likely be posting the pic on their own site soon, too.

Yeah, they also stole the photo from here. Note it's the exact same picture that Battle Droid had posted at the top of page 2. That Steve had to remove because it was posting copywriten images from the Insider. :p :)

*Yawn* wake me up when there's something worth looking at will you? I'm going into star wars collector hybernation because there's nothing but complete and utter trash being thrown out right now. If hasbroken ever get round to making something worth waking up for I'll possiblt return to this section. until then farewell.

What's wrong with giving Jabba a tongue and saliva? He had both in ROTJ. I think it looks very good. Especially after seeing good pictures of it over at Galactic Hunter. I wish they would have done him fully from scratch, but I like what I see so far. The only complaint I have, is the lack of the dais. But I'll buy an old one, and put a faux fur pelt on it and bam. :)

the tongue isn't so bad, especially if it's removable. yes jabba wags his tongue so it was nice of hasbro to think to include it, I just feel that he spends more time with his tongue in his mouth, so that's how I'd like to see him. as for the siliva, I just don't think it looks good. from the photos I've seen it appears to stand out too much. for the most part, this is the first thing I really haven't liked too much in a very long time. if the tongue comes out so that the pipe can go in, and even partially covers the siliva, I'll be happy with it overall, the paint looks great.

Turbowars
09-25-2003, 07:59 PM
Why do you think that Jabba can't hold his pipe? The old one did and it looks to be the same, but I haven't looked at mine in awhile. For the most part he looks good. It looks like Jabba, so what are you complaining about? Did you want him to have an action feature? Like Head Spinning Break Dancing Jabba? One thing for sure it's an improvement from the vintage and Glob versions. Hasbro isn't going to do a perfect Jabba. If they did they wouldn't have rehashes to put out. The dias should come with him and that's the only thing I'll complain about, but my vintage one will be perfect.:D

That's saliva????? :eek: I thought it was........nevermind that. Well, if it's applied on like clear liquid, perhaps it won't stand out so much and will look more realistic. Looks like Jabba just finished some glazed doughnuts and forgot to wipe off the icing. The head looks a lot better. It's different from the Glob version and the paint is so much improved. The body is definitely the Glob Jabba. Yeah, a wheeled dais would be cool, too. And a voice chip!!!!! Come on, lets see those Commtechs put to good use!!!! :D
