Jabba the Hutt Throne Room Action Scene (AMT/ERTL Model Kit)

October 9, 2009

(EDIT: When I first got this, I didn’t realize that it was a re-issue of an earlier kit by MPC. I have now added that kit to my collection as well.)

This is a plastic model kit that you have to assemble with glue and paint. It’s bigger than I expected, at about a foot and a half wide, and it’s the only model or toy that I know of that attempts to recreate Jabba’s entire throne room. It comes with an impressive array of characters. Just about every alien and other character that appeared in Jabba’s throne room is here.

Unfortunately the individual models are pretty low in detail, and the underlying base is made out of a very flimsy kind of vacuformed plastic that is really not suitable for this use. I had hoped to paint this model up, but I don’t think it’s worth the time and effort that would be involved, given how low in quality the overall product is. What I may do is to just paint up Jabba on his throne and some of the major characters. UPDATE: I have now painted up part of this kit. Details are here.

    LOL. I used to have the Hoth hanger bay model. I thought that they were pretty decent for the size. Never would’ve had the patience to paint them though. 🙂
