"Threepio, you tell that slimy piece of worm ridden filth he'll get no such pleasure from us."

"Cheesah beecha wonky Chewbacca."

The beginning of a screen accurate Jabba's palace scene has begun to form on my Tatooine shelf. I recently acquired the Walmart exclusive Jabba's throne which gives us a revamp of the older Jabba figures. This time Jabba has soft "squishy" vinyl with a flexible plastic skeleton whithin his bloated bulk that gives us a Jabba that is neither too firm nor too flimsy. He comes with a well built mock-stone slab on wheels complete with real metal trimmings and rings that allow it to be pulled by slaves and subjects of the crime lord's court. The set comes with hard plastic cushions with contours sculpted into them to give the illusion that the great hut is actually sitting on them--they also look great under his slave girls. Next there is the mounted hookah (water pipe) that Jabba smokes to relax--this comes with a flexible vinyl hose and mouth piece that really fits into his mouth. Also included is a very well done and posable Oola the Twi'lek dancer that Jabba turns into Rancor bait and the malicious little Kowakian Monkey Lizard Salacious Crumb. Oola has a rope around her neck that Jabba can use to pull her into submission--or into the Rancor pit. Malakili the Rancor tamer and his buddy Giran are present to flesh out the court scene. Wooof is there as well to step up Jabba's muscle along with Nysad the Nikto skiff gunner. Two Gammorrean guards flank Jabba's throne and we can see R2-D2 in his sail barge serving droid gear which is a really awesome figure--complete with removable drinking glasses and robotic serving arm. Finally we see Leia in disguise as the Ubese bounty hunter Boussh with her offer of the mighty Chewbacca pictured here in restraints. This saga legends Leia as Boussh is an amazing improvement on the POFT2 figure and features a removable thermal detonator!
