...for REVENGE!Jabba lives...

Jabba was not killed by Princess Leia, but merely put into a catatonic state from which he quickly regained consciousness. He suffered major injuries in his escape from the exploding sail barge. During his lengthy recovery and rehabilitation, Jabba lost almost all control of his criminal empire. He lives now, unfavored in the Hutt community, in self-exile, planning his ultimate revenge against Solo and his friends.
A cyborg Hutt was something I considered for last year's MOC Madness. But I figured it would be too much trouble to try to fit a figure this size into cockpits. I thought this cyborg could be a younger Hutt, a bounty hunter, but Jabba is so recognizable, and the back-story just writes itself, so, this IS Jabba the Hutt. As he will appear in the next trilogy?
