Gentle Giant Max Rebo Band Statue

September 18, 2009


This statue is a companion piece to Gentle Giant’s Jabba the Hutt and Rancor statues. They’re all more or less in scale with each other, although this statue may be slightly too big to truly be in scale. I’ve heard a number of people ask whether this statue could be displayed with Sideshow’s 1/6 scale Jabba the Hutt. For me, the answer is a definite no. They just look too small in comparison. Sideshow has said they’re working on 1/6 scale versions of the band, but it’s been a very long time since we first heard that and there has been no progress as far as I know.


The statue consists of Sy Snootles, Droopy McCool, and Max Rebo himself (who comes up with these names, anyway?). Sy Snootles and Droopy McCool slot into the base with metal rods, while Max (and his “piano) is a separate piece that just sits on the base.


It also comes with a Salacious Crumb, who can sit on top of Max’s piano, staying in place with a magnet, but he can also be placed on Jabba’s throne.


The microphones are also separate pieces that fit into holes in the base with metal rods. While it hasn’t been available from Gentle Giant for some time, for some reason this piece is not very expensive on the secondary market, and there is very little to complain about its execution. If you want a representation of the band in your collection, then I heartily recommend it, especially¬†if you don’t have issues of scale to worry about (trying to have it fit in with other pieces),

    In the film the band was much smaller than regular aliens/humans in the scene, the Snootles puppet was about probably 4 feet or so in height….. maybe a bit taller but not by much. They were small characters compared to the other characters. I did not know this until just recently actually, I seen a photograph from the set and realized how short these characters really were intended to be but now it’s been so confused….. most fans or collectors believe they are actual size to others or even taller. One customizer made his Sy Snootles figurine larger by extending the legs and that is nothing how the character looked. If anything he should have cut off a good hunk of her legs and glued the feet to her knees lol, maybe in a better way but in other words the band were very small creatures.
