Jabba’s Dais Gargoyle Magnet by Regal Robot (2019 Celebration Exclusive)

March 29, 2019

Let me let you in on a little secret. I’ve never been to a Star Wars Celebration. The main problem is that as a self-employed person I get no vacation time, so taking time off to go to an event like this not only involves the costs of admission, transportation, lodging, and so forth, but also requires me to skip client work that I would otherwise be doing during that time (and yes, I work most weekends at least in some capacity). It would be hugely expensive for me and I’ve just never been able to do it. This is particularly painful this year since I don’t live that far away from Chicago and I had really hoped to make it work this time. But alas, no.

That’s why it was so nice to get this in the mail recently from Regal Robot. They are going to be selling these Jabba’s dais gargoyle magnets exclusively at Celebration (at Booth #3419), but were kind enough to send a sample to me to review. From what I understand, they will be selling for $20 and there will be roughly 300 of them available, but they will be split up over the four days of the show to give as many people as possible the chance to get one. So if they sell out one day, try to get to the booth early the next day and there should be more.

They appear to be made of resin (with a metal ring in the mouth), and I have been told that they are all hand-cast right in Regal Robot’s New York shop. The magnet in the back is impressively strong, so I don’t think you need to worry about this guy falling off.

I think they’ve done a great job of making it look like metal, complete with the bluish green patina that you would expect. Above, you can see it next to the gargoyle from the recent Sideshow Jabba’s throne, showing that it’s actually pretty large, all things considered. In fact, I believe it is the largest version of a Jabba throne gargoyle that has ever been commercially released. That said, it’s still a very manageable size, which is definitely a plus for something you’re buying at a convention. $20 for an item like this that is being produced in such small quantities should be a no-brainer for Jabba fans attending the show.
