Mine was a bit of a hastle too...  I had figures falling everywhere, had to be on a stool to do it too since it's up a little high for me to just reach in easily.  The domino effect took over teh palace.

Managed to get five minutes and make the switch.  It's a definite improvement!

Soooooo

Took my Jabba out and heís def got the meat sweats going on his undercarriage now but only very slightly.  Heís out of the shelf and on metal now chillin while I debate what Iíll do with him.

I decided to do research on Jabba knowing he now oozes and his ooze can melt plastics near it.

I have learned some interesting stuff about rubber and plastic, and that rubber can sometimes really not like plastic, especially if it has a plasticizer in its chemical make up that is common in toy manufacturing but which likes to eat other more rigid types of abs plastic.  Basically itís dissolving abs like MEK will do for plastic welding.  Very interesting stuff.

How Hasbro could basically **** the bed on this is kind of mind boggling.  It also is rather nasty off-gassing going on of the rubber portion of Jabba.  I wish there was a resin cast lower body you could buy as a replacement and ditch the rubber skin.😕

This would make an interesting story I think since so many have had major damage from a Jabba.  As it stands Iím just glad I got to mine before it damaged anything at all.

I may try sealing him and see how it pans out but Iím really worried to ever put him on anything at this point.  Anything I care about anyway, like his said or the barge.😬

Just checked on my Jabba on throne the other day.  I've had it in a storage bin with a bunch of other Jabba's palace themed figures, including some of the TVC Gamorreans and somewhat HTF guards.  Jabba was sitting right on the throne.  I didn't see any outward signs of melting.  But he was sticking slightly to the throne.  When I pulled him off there was no paint coming off of either the throne or Jabba.  But it's very much cause for concern moving forward.

That tackiness is the beginnings of the process Nick.  Might want to quarantine the poor guy like I did.

Iíve seen some guys on Facebook talking about spraying Jabba with a chemical sealer to prevent further melting.  Has anyone here tried that?
