  • Comments: Jabba the Hutt always enjoyed the thrill of using the lives of others as tokens in his games of peril and doom. Years ago he presided over the dangerous Tatooine Podraces where dozens of pilots put their lives on the line as crowds screamed and cheered. He now hoped to surpass that drama by escorting his prisoners Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca to their end in the Great Pit of Carkoon. But the captives quickly overcame the skiff guards Klaatu, Nikto and Barada, and brought Jabba himself to a fitting end.

    Points of Interest:
  • The names of these aliens are a tribute to the classic science fiction film, The Day the Earth Stood Still.
  • Klaatu is actually a member of the Nikto race, and was seen aboard the Sail Barge, not the skiff.
  • Barada is actually a member of the Klatoonian race, and was one of the first to fall into the sarlacc pit.
  • The Nikto figure in this set is named Vizam, and was seen aboard the Sail Barge, not the skiff.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
