Link: Big Fat Yellow Frog (Unproduced Jabba Bean Bag)

November 21, 2009

I found this interesting article the other day. It’s written by someone who attempted to get a Jabba the Hutt bean bag produced around the time of the Phantom Menace. (It never made it beyond the final prototype stage, unfortunately. Or perhaps it’s fortunate, since I don’t know where I would put one…) Anyway, it’s a fun look into how things can often get lost in translation (sometimes literally) when going from the designers in the US to the Chinese factories. I don’t want to spoil the surprise so I won’t show the picture of first Jabba bean bag prototype here, but you have to see it. I also love the concept art.

There was also a Jabba bean bag chair prototype made in 1995, as this page from the Tomart Toy Guide attests.

    That would’ve been superb. Maybe thinkgeek would be able to do something about it like their Tauntaun sleeping bag?
