Surprisingly, I got this the other day at target. They also had the Denizens 3-pack, but I got the Wampa instead. I had no idea Jabba and his goons were out yet, but I guess they are.
Technically, this is the first official Jabba from ROTJ (vintage version not included). We've had plenty before - a Special Edition version with Han, a TPM version with Jabba Glob (which could kind have been a ROTJ version because of his position), and another TPM version with the 2-headed announcer.
This is a very nice version of Jabba, it looks just like him. He's the right size, but he doesn't look like it because he's not on a dais. He has quite a lot of drool on his bottom lip, which is cool. His eyes are sculpted as part of the rest of him, unlike the 1997 version. They added a white dot to simulate a glare. They got the nostrils right this time (I think they've usually been right, but it's still good to note). However, when his tongue or pipe aren't in, his mouth looks a little odd, like Popeye or something. The color of him is correct this time for his ROTJ appearance. It's not as defined as the cardback picture, but I think it's better (less cartoony). They added peach alongside his tail and on his underside, which is a nice touch. By the way, his tail is the same as the Jabba Glob version, but new colors. And he's all one piece (unless you count the tongue).
Seeing as how he doesn't move much, there isn't much articulation. Arms, "waist", and that's it. He doesn't have any action feature like tail-wagging or barfing, so that's good.
Jabba comes with a rail, removable tongue, frog-like creature, hookah pipe, and smoke/frog-container thing. Originally, I thought the rail was small, but it's rather large. It starts with the bowl thing and goes along Jabba's body until halfway down his tail, with the slope going downward from the bowl. The pipe part is cool, it looks like there's smoke in there. The bowl comes off after you remove the pipe bowl/frog bowl from the rail, and it looks like there's water in there. The froggy thing can be held by Jabba or put in the bowl. It's weird, it has two hind frog legs and a bunch of tentacles coming out of its face. The hookah connects to the top of the bowl thing and goes into Jabba's mouth. His tongue can as well, an odd thing to have since he only uses it once to lick Leia (as I can remember).
Overall, this is a nice figure/set. It's a lot better than the sickly-looking Jabba Glob Jabba, so I suggest everyone get it. He looks cool talking to the Jabba's Palace Luke, or Boushh, or the droids and Holo Luke, and no Jabba's Palace diorama is complete without big J.
