Legacy Collection Yarna d’al’ Gargan by Hasbro

July 20, 2010

Yarna (or “Gargan” as she is probably better known) is another character from Jabba’s palace that has never had a figure before, although there was actually a prototype vintage figure made, but never finished or released. Like just about everyone else, she had a complicated backstory invented for her, and I’ll have to say this one is more interesting than most.

Apparently Jabba forced her to wear wart makeup and put on weight because it reminded him of his “mother” (I think Hutts are supposed to be asexual, but they didn’t entirely stick to that). She escaped Jabba’s palace after his death and eventually danced at Han Solo and Leia’s wedding.

This figure is a notorious “peg warmer” (a figure that stays on the pegs at the store forever without selling), and I guess that’s not a surprise. A fat dancer with six breasts probably isn’t the most exciting figure for most, unless you’re trying to fill out a Jabba display.

    I was never sure what to make of Yarna. A great figure with a great likeness IMO.

    (Whenever i read, watch or listen to the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, i always used to think of here whenever any mention of “The triple breasted whore of eroticon VI was mentioned. 🙂 )

    Yarna was my favourite character for year for some reason then I figured out they were making a figure of her (I bought two) and I was pretty happy. I took one figure out of the box to make a Jabba’s Palace diorama, i’ve also got a 30 inch Jabba the Hutt.

    Guess I already posted on here lol, just purchased a custom vintage Gargan…… it was only 77 dollars…. Ebay….. naturally. Anyway it’s identical to the vintage prototype which reminds me is there any information on the owner of the original prototypes? Looking to purchase them. Any info oh Mighty Jabba? 😛
