Jabba’s Throne Room Blockheadz (Papercraft Figures) by Aaron Goulborn

April 21, 2011

Aaron Goulborn is a Canadian artist who specializes in making “Blockheadz” — blocky figures made of folded paper. He’s got a pretty extensive lineup of these figures for all sorts of pop culture properties (check out his Facebook page for more info). Most of them are around 4 or 5 inches tall and come in little clear plastic display cases.

Since the Leia in this “Jabba’s Palace” version is in scale with the rest of his figures, that means that his Jabba needed to be pretty huge. He’s about 5.5″ tall by 12″ long (to the tip of his tail). The entire case is about 7″ tall by 15″ wide.


Of course there’s no shortage of papercraft designs on the web that you can print off for free and assemble yourself (although I haven’t seen anything that approaches this Jabba). But I like the idea of buying something like this directly from the artist who created it. These are signed “limited editions” (this is #8 of 144), which is also kind of cool.

Aaron seems to mostly sell these at shows in Canada, but kindly sent me this through the mail.

    I think i’ve seen these on the rebelscum forums. They are fantastic. Once again, another nice addition to your collection. 🙂
