Jabba the Hutt Skeleton Statue (“AG Four Creature Skeleton”) by Leadworks

April 15, 2010

This is a unique statue that I got in Japan. I don’t know a whole lot about it, but I do know that it’s manufactured by a company called Leadworks, and I believe that it was only released in Japan. Or at least the only place I’ve seen these are on Japanese auction sites. The box makes no mention of Jabba specifically (the statue has the enigmatic name “AG Four Creature Skeleton”) but it’s pretty obvious that it’s intended to be Jabba’s skeleton. Of course I don’t think Hutts would really have skeletons in the Star Wars world — I’ve always thought of them as being closest to slugs in terms of their physiology.

It’s about 8 inches tall by 6 inches wide, so it’s fairly large. I’ve found 3 or 4 of these on auction sites over the last few months, and all but this one have had fingers missing from the hands, so that’s clearly a weak point. The box is almost entirely in English. It’s actually kind of humorous and not the kind of “Engrish” that you might expect:

At the end of this century 1999, the AG Creature is born. Why it was born, or where it was born, no on can say for sure. Absorbing all human hatred, desire and jealousy, even now it is said to be continuously multiplying…

How to take care of the AG Creature:

  • Never give it food or water after 12 midnight. It won’t get bigger, but it may develop a stomach ache.
  • It loves movies, so watch one together sometime.
  • Try touching your finger to the creature’s finger. You should be able to share your feelings.
  • Do not put it in your bicycle basket, as flying may occur.
  • Avoid direct sunlight.
  • Take it for the occasional walk.

Distinctive features and habitat

  • It’s rather bony looking…
  • It’s [sic] habitat is puzzling.
  • Maybe from the Galapagos Islands?

    I really like this as it’s an unusual take on Jabba.

    Would you be able to point me in a good direction on where to find one? I’ve been looking everywhere

      Where have you been looking? I’ve never seen one on eBay as I think they were only sold in Japan. If you really want one your best bet would be Yahoo Auctions in Japan, but you’d probably need to use some sort of go-between service to bid for you.

        Wow. I wouldn’t even begin to know how to do that. Thanks for the info though. Bummer…
