Galactic Hunter is reporting that Gentle Giant just announced plans for a 12″ scale Jabba the Hutt at their SDCC talk.  They posted a photo on Facebook from the talk, but it appears to just be of the actual vintage figure (as is my image above). But the fact that the photo included the throne is very encouraging. (No Salacious Crumb in their image though. Perhaps it’ll be an exclusive or something?) They also announced a Jumbo Leia as Boushh figure that will go great with this set.

Ever since I picked up the Jumbo Gamorrean Guard and Yak Face figures, I had been hoping they would release a Jabba (ideally with his entire playset). But I wasn’t sure if the line had enough momentum to warrant such a thing, or if Gentle Giant wanted to make figures this large (this has the potential to be around the size of the Sideshow Sixth Scale Jabba figure, or maybe even larger. I’m very excited, but also very worried about the potential price. Considering that the Wampa costs $400, the sky’s the limit for this one — especially if he comes with his throne.
