“Jabba the Cute” Plushes by Brandon Dicks
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I’m a sucker for cute Jabbas. Oh, I like super-realistic figures and statues too, but there’s something about the idea of turning a repulsive alien gangster into an adorable anime-style character that really appeals to me.
This plush was created by Brandon Dicks, based on his “Jabba the Cute” artwork (which he also included a print of in my order — nice!).
He assembles them himself (the tag says “Made in My Livingroom” on the reverse), and I’ll have to say they are quite well done. It’s about 12″ wide. You can still order these on his Storenvy site. Oh, did I mention that he also makes a mini version? They’re listed as being 7″ wide, but I’d say it’s more like 5 or 6. But smaller is cuter, in my opinion, so no complaints from me.
I also made a short video about these for my YouTube channel, which you can see below:
