[SW] Jabba lives...

...for REVENGE!

Jabba lives... by SPARKART!, on Flickr.

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? ;) :facepalm:

Very creative. I like the story but for some reason I keep seeing Fred Mertz. Always enjoy what you put together

Very nice use of the new Jabba. He reminds me of Fishlegs from the new TMNT series.

Thanks for checking him out, guys. He's got two blaster rifles slung on both sides of this cybernetic body, to better suit his more action-oriented hands-on pursuits, nowadays. In the movies in my mind, I cast him more like a Marvel Kingpin character, having to work his way back up. When he tumbled from his throne, he took down many names for payback.
