  • Comments: Jabba the Hutt has made a fortune through his criminal activivites, and he loves to spend it on entertainment for himself. The bloated gangster likes to sit in his palace and listen to the Max Rebo Band, surrounded by music, singing, and beautiful dancers. As the band plays on, Jabba deals out payments and punishments, depending on his mood at the moment. The Max Rebo Band is made up of true professionals whose music and singing never falter even when blaster fire erupts or the rancor is thrown another unwilling meal.


    Rappertunie: His real name is Rapotwanalantonee, but this swamp-dwelling Shawda Ubb musician shortened it to create his stage name. He plays the growdi, a combination water organ and flute. Since he's used to a moist environment, he rarely moves from his growdi perch to avoid getting dehydrated.
  • Rappertunie is a minor repaint of 2004's SAGA Rappertunie (Jabba's Palace).


    Greeata: Greeata is a back-up singer and dancer in the Max Rebo Band. She was always interested in music and hung around with artists of all species on her homeworld, before teaming up with Sy Snootles as a singing duo. SHe and Sy were eventually discovered by Max Rebo and joined his band.
  • Greeata is a minor repaint of the figure from 1998's POTF2 Jabba's Dancers cinema scene.


    Joh Yowza: Joh Yowza's comical demeanor and booming voice give him a unique stage presence. Originally from Endor, Yowza boarded a freighter in search of food and ended up singing in Evar Orbus' band, until Orbus was killed in a fight. Later, his impromptu singing delighted Jabba, allowing him to join the band.
  • Joh Yowza is a slight repaint of the figure from 1998's POTF2 Joh Yowza and Sy Snootles set.


    Rystáll: Rystáll is a back-up vocalist and dancer in the band that entertains Jabba in his palace. She's originally from Coruscant, where she and her parents became a crime lord's slaves until they were freed by Lando Calrissian. Arriving on Tatooine with her parents, Rystáll joined the Max Rebo Band.
  • Rystáll is a minor repaint of the figure from 1998's POTF2 Jabba's Dancers cinema scene.


    Lyn Me: One of several dancers that perform in Jabba's palace, Lyn Me also provides back-up vocals for the band. Her village hired Boba Fett to eliminate slavers that were hunting them, and she remains loyal to him to this day. Jabba was delighted with this beautiful Twi'lek's dancing abilities and added her to the palace band.

    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
