This looks great! How did you get him back together after adding the batting? Did you get that inner armature part back in after filling him, or remove it completely?

I did remove the tail portion of the armature, since it was difficult to get it all the way back down the tail with the batting inside. This means that my customized one no longer has a "posable" tail, but I think I'll live... Otherwise, I left the armature in place. The skin is pretty strong and stretchy, so I just pulled it back on over everything.

FINALLY got my hands on one of these sets yesterday, after heading out of town and finding scads of them at the WMs in that city. It's great to have a decent Jabba for the collection, though mine ended up with wonky pupil paint apps. Bummer.

I saw tons of these this weekend.  Seriously.

I'll say it again.  I predicted more would ship, and more certainly have.

while I would definitly want one, my reason for not getting one isn't really due to price but more to lack of extra money to spend on things I'd like to have vs paying bills etc.

That's an OUTSTANDING deal on that set...  I thought the Bomber was good, but this is better.

What great timing. I just managed to pick up tVC Slave Leia tonight after never seeing the Legacy version in stores. I was thinking to myself that I really needed to go find the Jabba set. I log on to JD and there is the headline. :)

$26 including shipping. Great deal.

EE had LOADS of Jabba with throne at NYCC.  I guess they took a significant position with this piece, and now they're looking to clear them out.

It'a a fun set for sure.   The $40 at retail was a bit of a stretch but not bad for an exclusive.  At $20 it's definately worth it.  It's a nice center piece for all of your Jabba's Palace goons.  I doubt I will ever be able to swing the entire Sideshow 12 inch set.

I finally bit the bullet on this set.  $16.99 and free shipping from Amazon was too good to pass up.  I guess patience does pay off.   :D

Yeah, I got another set just for the heck of it. It was in pristine shape -- I imagine that the ones Entertainment Earth are selling are extra stock that was never even on store shelves.

Received this set today.  Really nice and detailed....now I'm trying to incorporate the throne into my diorama.

I'm wondering if the cardboard throne of the diorama set can be flattened or removed without destroying the structural integrity of the rest of the set.

Cardboard throne is a 100% separate piece that can be removed...  This fits into the space it leaves fairly well then.

Thanks Jesse.  If you look at my collection pics, it's going to be a bit of a project for me to clear out all the figures to take it out.

Basically, everything is a project with Colin around!   :D
