Upcoming: Closer Look At New LEGO Jabba’s Palace

February 9, 2012

I wrote about our first glimpse of the upcoming LEGO Jabba’s Palace set a couple of months ago, and now we get a much better look at the set in the form of a short demo by a LEGO employee at a Toy Fair. The Jabba figure looks great, and his torso can even swivel — much better than the original figure, in my opinion (although that also has its charms). You can also see how the trap door works, and how Jabba’s throne will slide up to cover it. There’s even stairs on either side of the throne, which even the action figure versions have never included. So far, it looks fantastic. The only issue is that he says that it’s a product for Christmas 2012, which seems like a very long time away. 😦

    I love everything about this. The old Jabba was so lame I never bothered with it. The extreme minimalism of LEGO turns me off most of the time, but this is about as good as LEGO can do. The features of the palace are top notch.
