One of the best characters from the Star Wars saga has to be the delightful handsome sluggish thing Jabba The Hutt. Jabba is a slimy green creature who ambles around with little charisma, barking orders at his workers and slaves. He made his filmic debut in 'Return Of The Jedi' and was then brought back when Lucas made the prequels, only in CGI form.
There was an original Kenner Jabba The Hutt toy, who came with Salacious Crumb, his sidekick. Jabba's playset was a huge success, so it seemed right for Hasbro to bring him up to date in a new set.
This Clone Wars battle pack has Jabba in all his slimy glory and a protocol droid. There is stunning attention to Jabba's face, they have managed to capture his evil beastly face to a tea. His slitty eyes glaring out at you with just a little glint of mischief. Excellent texturing to his bodywork and a very well crafted tail make him an authentic looking figure. He can also be swivelled at the body, meaning you can put him into a range of poses. Jabba's hands can grip a pipe of sorts, which he drinks from or rather inhales.
The protocol droid seems a strange inclusion at the expense of Salacious Crumb, but he is well designed with movable joints and pleasing detail on his bodywork and legs. The set has accessories in the form of Jabba's drinking pipe, which is golden and pretty well modelled too.
The pack makes for a superb collector's piece and is best kept sealed to preserve the value of it. It is quite expensive though, you could be looking at twenty five pounds for the figures, so tighten those purse strings!
