JABBA THE HUTT
« on: July 19, 2003, 08:27 AM »
Pictures has surface-showing Jabba from a ANH-I thought
it was to come with its Dais.   I have heard
from Hasbro that these three figures may happen next year too-Hermie Olde, Whipid, and Hem Dazon. A viewer and
a member of JEDIDENFER has seen the new Jabba and
he said he was happy with it!!!!

Most rumors point to a ROTJ Jabba at this point...

The Jabba's Palace wave is supposed to include Jabba so sayeth Hasbro via JediMAC

Adam P at GH had posted that a while back, the picture is confusing I know and they better not screw us! :-*

The black and white image that I saw of  Jabba looks like it is a resculpt of the Jabba Glob. Or so I think it is. The image only showed most of jabba and what to me looked like a plastic base which I am lead to believe it is his dias.
It has come to my attention that the pict that I saw might of been a mock up for the Jabba. But I do not think so.

I hope to see a color image of Jabba soon. If I am privilaged to see something before the next Insider comes out I will be sure to post about it.

For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

To Jimmy you listen.   ;)

I also think Hem Dazon and Hermi are coming next year one way or the other.

I also heard that there will be a new Bib Fortuna and C3PO for Jabba's Palace besides the new Luke that already has been mentioned.

I would really like to see a new Bib Fortuna done.  Not that there's anything wrong with the ones that I have already been made, but a new sculpt would be great.

This Jabba will obviously be from ROTJ, as that's the version that the fans and collectors have been clamoring for for years now!  Plus, it was stated in the Comic Con news that it will be included in the Jabba's Palace themed wave, which is not attributable to the ANH version.

I'm sure Hasbro's going to go all out on this one, due to making the fans wait for it for so long.  Expect the dais, frog bowl, pipe, and probably a Slave Leia or Oola to keep Jabba company!  Can't wait for Insider #71 to find out!  Unfortunately, it sounds like we'll be waiting until March of next year to finally get our hands on one though.  Hopefully it's worth the aggravatingly long wait!  But the bottom line is that it's finally coming for sure, so I'm one happy collector!

I had mentioned this piece  long time ago in a... OH wait... same galazy just a long time ago  ;)

If anyone remembers my stint at Trade Federation.net they might remember I broke news of this last August.

It was always planned as a Return version... and was noted then as a vintage-esque type piece.

One of the last emails I got from my Hong Kong source was some of it was scaled back... originally he thought it was being nixed... but thankfully that was a misunderstanding.

He mentioned it's still a great piece though a few corners were cut. What those are I would have say pack-ins to some minor details at the most.

I actually have got to see a pic just yet... but should catch a glimpse this week.

I'll let everyone how eye bulging it is... or isn't.

Hey Jimmy,
   Did you ever get a look at the new Jabba!!  You said early
that you source is  in Hong Kong that they list a Hem Dazon and
Hermie Olde is there any R1-G4 on that list.  Has your source
share what the other deluxe set are for 2004. Are there any
ship plan or playset by any chance.  Thank for the info

I'd rather get a new Bib Fortuna first, as well as a new Weequay... but I definitely want another Jabba too.
