Repainted Power of the Force 2 Jabba the Hutt

potf2_jabba_repaint1

As I said before, I’m not a fan of the POTF2 Jabba for a variety of reasons. When I won one very cheaply on ebay, I decided to repaint it. I had to dremel out the insides to make it possible for him to face to the side like most Jabbas. I didn’t know what the mechanism was that was preventing him from turning to the side, so I basically just had to stab around with the dremel until I figured it out. They made this figure out of very thick and hard plastic, which made things difficult.

It’s still not a great figure, but I think it looks quite a bit better than before, at least. I decided to repaint the eyes rather than leave the existing plastic eyes, since they had always kind of given me the creeps.

    Great job with this figure!
    Like you, I’ve always hated this version of Jabba, but seeing how much you’ve managed to improve it inspired me to have a go at it myself.
    My, but doesn’t he clean up well!
    Great site in general, by the way!

    Here’s a link to my version (in 3D, for those who care about such things):

      Nice! A little freaky in 3D though…
