News: Screenshots of LEGO Jabba from “The Padawan Menace” Added to Articles

January 16, 2012

I recently got a copy of “The Padawan Menace,” which is a half-hour TV special that aired on the Cartoon Network about 6 months ago. It’s a comical adventure using LEGO Star Wars characters. I was surprised that Jabba has a pretty large cameo appearance, as do Bib Fortuna, the rancor and some Gamorrean Guards. I’ve uploaded a short video to Youtube with just Jabba’s scenes to give you an idea (see below). It’s definitely a fun little show if you like LEGO Star Wars.

I thought it was interesting that they reused Jabba’s lines from Return of the Jedi. Even though the lines in Huttese don’t really match what Jabba is supposed to be saying, I think it probably sounds better than having a new actor record something. I have also added some screenshots to the Articles section of my site.

I’m wondering if the design for the CGI Jabba minifigure will be what we see in the upcoming LEGO Jabba’s Palace set. I think it’s a lot more attractive than the previous version. I’m also hoping that we’ll see a rancor and rancor keeper at some point in the near future, since they’ve never made one.
