Jabbear (Jabba the Hutt Parody) Statue by Bad Taste Bears / OddCo

March 2, 2011

This is part of a large line of statues and figurines manufactured by OddCo called Bad Taste Bears. They take cute cartoony bears and put them in costumes and situations of questionable taste. Take a look at their website if you like, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. 🙂 I don’t think this one is that offensive, but just to be safe I have censored some of the pictures. If you want to see the uncensored version, just click on the image. In any case, Jabba has one particular feature that’s rather… distinctive.

These are made in England, and as far as I know they aren’t officially distributed in the US. So I had my friend Rodders from the UK pick one of these up for me. Thanks Rod! According to the official product page, it retailed at £60 (or £54 for members of their club) and was limited to 400 pieces. I paid somewhat less than that on eBay, however. Either way, it’s not cheap, but I was impressed with how large it was when I got it in hand. It’s about 6″ tall and 8″ wide, although it’s relatively lightweight.

Apparently the sculptor intentionally made Jabba look like John Prescott, the former Deputy Prime Minister who apparently has a reputation as a bit of a playboy.

Slave Leia looks pretty relaxed, but that might change once the “Viagro” he’s smoking kicks in. There’s also a little Salacious Crumb-looking creature to the right of the throne.

As a statue, I can’t really say that this matches my tastes, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to add such a unique Jabba collectible to my collection.

    LOL, someone bought be the “Dark Vibe” Bad Taste bear as a present once. They are an unusual collectible.
