Link: Scratch-Built Jabba the Hutt Statue

June 24, 2011

I stumbled on this while searching for an unrelated Jabba item. Apparently a Japanese sculptor made this as a gift for a friend of his a couple of years ago. Lucky friend! He said it took about 19 days. Just incredible. He detailed the entire process on his blog. If you’re interested, start with this entry and click the 次の日> (“Next Page”) link at the bottom of each page to go to the next entry (there will be a few unrelated entries as well). Here are some highlights. I particularly like the shot of an early version of the sculpt with a package of Japanese “Jaba” detergent. 😀

    The mouth is a little too prominent, but facially that’s one of the better Jabba sculpts I’ve seen. Pretty close to the Sideshow statue.

      The Sideshow version is the gold standard when it comes to realistic versions of Jabba, but I like seeing different interpretations like this.

    A very cool piece though.
