Anyone beside me and Asta order this beast? This was quite the expense, but I'm really looking forward to getting this. Definitely going to have to make some sort of diorama with this thing. Here are some pics that showed up on Facebook a couple days ago.

He does look gorgeous (insofar as that term could possibly apply to him) and tempting (ditto). And I normally would pay up for Star Wars stuff I want of this quality, but still holding out (which could be a major error if I end up going for it later, when it would be even more Godlessly expensive). With the 3.75" figures I have assembled as much of Jabba's court as possible, but in the larger scales there have been few offerings and I have none of them except for Sideshow's Bib Fortuna. Because of this, the amount of space it would take up, and because this is a swappable parts statue rather than an actual action figure, I am staying away as best I can.

I didn't order it, but I would definitely love one someday! It looks awesome!

I'm still in the process of setting up a new display area after a very long and exhausting house move, so it will probably be a while before I'd even have space for something like that. But in the meantime I'll admire from afar... ;p

Pre-ordering a Sideshow figure can be a huge leap in the dark as the drop-off between prototype and production can be quite significant. At least more significant than with a company like Hot Toys.

However, as this was a statue, which is Sideshow's strength, I felt more confident ordering as soon as CDUK put him up.

Had to be a UK seller due to the potential shipping cost and additional 25% in VAT and duty that ordering from Sideshow would entail.

After using my reward points the total cost is £667.60, which is about $860 today.

Sideshow's price is $795 + $139.76 shipping = $934.76. (Add 25% in VAT and duty and he'd be $1,168.45).

So he almost feels like a bargain.  Laughing

Still expensive for what he is, but he looks impressive.


At some point CDUK raised the price from £680 to £750, so I'm glad I got in early.


I built some stairs today so Bib Fortuna can stand alongside him, but will likely have to adjust them when I get the throne in hand and know the exact height to the base of the support rail.

You're absolutely right about statues being Sideshow's strength -- sadly, also their more expensive products, lol, so I don't actually own any.

But wow, that IS a really good deal, lucky you! ^.^

I love the Jabba's palace section of ROTJ. I missed the original Sideshow Jabba when he came out, but picked him up boxed later on Ebay for £40 (I think) which felt like a real bargain. It was one of those lucky occasions when nobody else bothered to bid. But I never had the throne.

The new Jabba is bigger, more correctly scaled and better painted. Not sure about the new Salacious Crumb as I still like the original with his slimmer limbs. I have both of the Sideshow Jabba's Palace Creature packs, but I missed out on their Gamorrean Guard. Maybe Sideshow will re-release him?

Lando in disguise could well be going up for pre-order soon as he's featuring in this week's Sideshow Live video.

I had been on the fence for awhile on this guy myself. Had been eyeing the first one on eBay for years, but the aftermarket prices for V.1 were, and to a degree still are, out of control. I was lucky enough to PO through Timewalker, which was $50 cheaper than Sideshow, if I remember correctly. They had a payment plan option, which was nice, as well (not quite as good as the Sideshow plan, but still helpful). It’s still going to ship direct from Sideshow (since they’re the distributor), but even with their outrageous shipping, it should still work out to roughly the same as the full MSRP, around $800.

This was definitely a tough decision to make, but I’ve been involved in single custom figure projects that aren’t anywhere near as massive as this, that ultimately cost even more. Still a tough call, and I understand anyone’s hesitation. My Star Wars collection is nowhere near as expansive as some, but this guy is going to be an impressive center-piece. All of the sequences with Jabba were the best part of Return of the Jedi to me, so I’m excited to finally add him (it also didn’t hurt that Carrie Fisher was nearly naked in those scenes).

And Ephi, you’re right, I’d love to be able to add Oola to the display. Been eyeing a couple Bib Fortuna’s and Gamorrean Guards on eBay, but I just don’t know (I’m kind of hoping that Sideshow revisits those guys at least).

Asta, you should post those pics of the throne room dio for the smaller Star Wars figures. That thing is really cool. I’m with you, I’m going to have to build at least a section of the alcove to be able to display what Star Wars figures I have.

I, too, am a huge fan of the Jabba's throne room sequence in RotJ. Everything about it was just thrilling to me when I first saw it as a kid, and I am still fond of it to this day. It's just so much fun. Smile) (Though my personal favourite scene is the Emperor's Throne Room sequence...the final duel between Luke and Vader and Anakin's return to his True Self. <3 <3 <3 )

While I doubt I will ever be able to afford this one (as I have sooo many other things on my wishlist along with way too may in-progress projects that need attending to, first), I would love to live vicariously through those who do have it, and see everyone's set-ups with this as the centerpiece! Smile

That diorama is amazing. Can't remember where I found it but saved the photos for inspiration:

For the new 1/6 Jabba I made some simple stairs so I'd be able to get Bib Fortuna to stand in his customary position. When I started doing it today it was just to get an idea of what would be required, but I was happy with the result so will probably stick with it.

I cut up about 20 lengths of 1 1/4" soft wood and glued them into ascending stacks. Then covered and faced them with cardboard. I simplified the design of the actual steps so they'd be figure friendly, with each one wide enough for an old black oval stand. Four steps, each 4 1/2" deep so they fill the 18" shelf depth.

The new throne is supposed to be 17 1/2" deep, but I don't know how tall it is yet as the dimensions include the railing. I will probably have to adjust the height of the rear stack so it's level with the throne.

Oh yes, gorgeous diorama. Do you remember if this is for 3.75" or 6" figures? I am guessing (and hoping) for the smaller ones, as then you can really populate it with figures. I still hold it against Hasbro that they never made all the Jabba skiff guards before they messed up the line by returning to 5 points of articulation and getting distracted by the newer stuff. They still did a lot, and in some cases I got multiples so that I can modify the extras to look like the characters they did not make. But never got around to it.

Pretty sure those are 3 3/4".

I had to edit the post twice to get all the photos to upload as the system was only permitting a maximum of 3 each time.

I eventually sold almost all my 3 3/4" figures to concentrate on 1/6.

I'm 100% certain that the Jabba's Palace diorama in that picture is for 3.75" figures. (I have a couple of the figures in it, and they are definitely 3.75" scale Smile )

Edit: whoops, cross-posted!

Asta, when posting more than three pics (as I do on all those New Product threads), you don’t have to re-edit each thread.

Select three pics., “send” those, “insert all”, then “remove” them from the selection window. Stay in that window and select the next three, and continue the process. It’s a little time consuming, but it works. Just don’t move your cursor from where you want the pictures to go.

I have some of those 3.75" figures too, but haven't dug them out since I moved, so wasn't sure if it was them. Bib Fortuna and Boba Fett are my only Jabba-related sixth-scale figures, and the others I've considered getting have been just too pricey. So I will have to live vicariously through you. The stairs and Jabba-related sixth-scale figures look great. You've made a great start and your impending Jabba will look great with them. You could have estimated the throne's height by scaling a photo to the known dimensions (insofar as such a photo was available) and working from that as an approximation.

I guesstimated based on various photos. But Sideshow's throne dimensions may not be accurate, because they have Jabba listed as 13 1/2" tall, but he looks shorter (as he should be).

In this photo the top of the throne looks to be level with the bottom of the upper blue bar on the Sideshow R2-D2. I measured the identical figure and it came to 5".

So the throne appears to be 5" from base to top.

It's hard to judge Jabba's height because the photo is from a low angle and sloping sideways, and he's sitting further back. Ideally he should be 11 1/2".

It looks like he could be a little shorter than Threepio there, which would make him right.


Here's a photo by Shawn Collette on the One Sixth Society Facebook page:

Just ordered a pre-owned Sideshow Bib Fortuna off eBay for $48 shipped to go with this guy (thanks again, Guv); he’s missing one accessory (Jabba’s snack) and the original stand — I can live without both. So now I definitely need to make a diorama of the alcove.

That's a good price because he's still a very respectable looking figure by today's standards.

I cut an MDF backboard today as another stage in giving Jabba a home.

Thanks.

Are you going to add anything to the back, like an image of that (whatever it was) thing behind Jabba? I wonder if Twelveinchfigures made a backdrop image of that deeper part of the alcove.

I measured an unused wall/floor in my Man-Cave and I have a 57” space that I can put a side-table to make a dio — gives me an extra 27” of space to play with, based on Sideshow’s measurements of this piece.

I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do. I think the thing behind him was a roasting spit.

The shelf is 9 foot long, but only 18" deep, so the diorama will be like an opened out version of the palace. All characters will be to the side of the throne. But it means that Jabba will be a focal point, unobstructed by figures.

Asta, I hope it makes little or no difference, but it looks to me like the top of Jabba's throne in that photo is level with the middle blue bar on R2D2. You are right about the roasting pit. Perhaps you could paint one (or have one printed and attached to the back board).

Stryker, congratulations, may he look great next to your Jabba. If memory serves, Jabba will be coming with his own snacks, so you will still be able to have Bib feed him one right in the mouth. Smile

To gauge the height I put a ruler against the screen, following the line of the throne. The photo is on an angle so the throne rises to the left. It won't make significant difference as that back stair can be reduced in height as they're only resting on blocks. I really just wanted to get on and get things started.

Going to clad the brick buttress next, then put in the back board in the next section. Over time I may make things more elaborate.

That's not a bad idea, Asta. It's always difficult to set these things up on a shelf. I want to be able to highlight as many characters as possible, but unfortunately it never seems to work out that way. So many of them get overshadowed as they hide in the background (even though I put them on risers). Plus, I don't keep the lights on on my shelves all the time. So, whenever I want to look at them, I end up turning on 4 different surge protectors, stand there like an idiot for several minutes staring at them, wondering how I can jam JUST ONE MORE figure, then turn all the lights off.

I thought the same thing after reading Michael's review and going back over the eBay listing, Guv. I figured since the new Jabba comes with a snack that he can hold, it didn't really matter that Bib had one or not. And for that price, it was hard to pass up (particularly since others are asking over a $100 or more for him). It's funny, Bib isn't really a character I was all that interested in getting, but having Jabba without him just seems weird; just like I'd like to have a Gamorrean Guard to go with a Slave Leia (somehow it just feels right) - but I can't justify $300 or more for one (not when I've been holding out getting Gladiator Hulk because I thought it was over-priced by about $100).

I checked TwelveInchFigures website, and oddly he doesn't have a Jabba background in his inventory (maybe with this new figure he'll make one). I kind of thought that was a roasting spit, but it was never all that clear in the movie. Found some screen caps from the Battlefront video game where all of that is much clearer. I also found a slew more pictures of a 3.75" diorama of Jabba's palace (it has lights, a lot more detail on the walls, etc.) -- pretty amazing stuff. The guy who made it even made the floor grating retractable, and has a trap-door for Oola and Luke to fall through. Impressive looking to say the least. I don't plan on going that far out, but the stairs, the arch, and part of side alcoves would be cool to have.

My cases are crowded too, but I prefer that to a clinical display. The advantage is that every now and then I can rearrange them so different figures come to the fore.

If you haven't seen this diorama of Jabba's palace, check out this link to a WIP/Finished throne room created by "Jess" a member of the Rebelscum forum back in 2016, for the 3/75" Star Wars figures. Truly amazing work:

If you haven't seen this diorama of Jabba's palace, check out this link to a WIP/Finished throne room created by "Jess" a member of the Rebelscum forum back in 2016, for the 3/75" Star Wars figures. Truly amazing work:

That is an incredible recreation. I got to the thirteenth page before a database error kicked in, so the site's down now.

The limit of my own short term ambition is to make the stairs for the other end of the throne!


EDIT: It allowed me to get to the end. That is a truly amazing diorama. Some of the photos you couldn't tell from the real thing.

I know, right. And to be able to get that much detail at that size is astounding. I myself wasn’t planning anything that elaborate. And to think he even made the Rancor pit beneath it. It’s unfortunate there weren’t any further updates past the start of the pit, would have been cool to see the whole thing (I hope nothing tragic happened to make him stop).

That's a true labour of love. So much minute detail.

And the end presumably hasn't been written yet. What a cliffhanger to leave it on!

Maybe they just needed take a break from it to preserve their sanity? Very Happy


I'm more about the quick fix, using up materials I have on hand. Jabba's dais is the beginning of a diorama in itself, so at the least I wanted to enclose it with the steps on either side, which means other figures can get closer to him at varying heights.

1/6 Drogon/Jabba Headswap would look nice.

Beautiful Dio.

Do you know this old weird music video about Jabba's dais?

Bib Fortuna showed up today. He definitely looks better in hand than he does in a lot of photos — must be lighting washing out his “skin”. Still hope Sideshow revisits him and a Gamorrean Guard; I sent them a Suggestion for them on their site.

A few more people have been receiving their Jabbas, and posting photos and a video on Let Your Geek Sideshow.

A couple have said that Jabba and the throne are heavy, with one claiming 30 lbs in total, yet the one who posted the video said both pieces were quite light and hollow. When he accidentally knocked the throne against Jabba it was more of a hollow sound than a dense clunk.

Either way this looks like a quality release from Sideshow.

The unboxing video:

I don't know how to post the video here, but to view it I presume you'd have to be a member of the group.


Meanwhile, Jabba's little brother is keeping his place warm while eagerly awaiting his arrival.
