Link: Photos of Unproduced Jabba’s Palace Micro Machines Playset

March 4, 2011

The Star Wars Micro Machines blog (a great resource for anything to do with Star Wars Micro Machines) recently posted pictures of a Jabba’s Palace Micro Machines playset that unfortunately never got beyond the early prototype stage. They did put out the R2-D2 Transforming Playset, which changes into Jabba’s palace, but it’s quite small and unimpressive compared to what we see here. Of course you can’t see everything in the picture, but you can make out the towers of his palace itself on the right, the door that R2-D2 and C-3PO enter through on the left, and what is probably the throne room in the middle. Be sure to click through to their site to see the excellent Ralph McQuarrie artwork that was going to be used for the packaging!

There haven’t really been many Jabba’s palace items made. Aside from the Transforming Playset mentioned above, the only other toys that comes to mind are the Micro Machines Planet Tatooine Playset and the LEGO Jabba’s Palace set. Some other non-toy items include the Hawthorne Village Jabba’s Palace statue, and the AMT/ERTL Jabba’s Palace model kit, but the number of items that try to recreate his palace as a whole is surprisingly small given the relatively large number of Jabba collectibles.
