This Jabba The Hutt was released in 1997/1998 together with a Han Solo action figure. Jabba is based on the Special Edition appearance in ANH's docking bay 94 scene. Jabba himself looks somewhat OK with a decent paint job, but there is not too much you can do with him. His head is movable, but you can not turn it all the way to the side. If you turn his head, his tail will move as well, simulating movement. His hands have open palms and can not hold any accessories. Considering that this figure is purely based on one scene in A New Hope it fulfills it's purpose, but the details on Jabba feel a bit outdated.
