.JABBA THE HUTT MAQUETTE

 

RELEASED AUGUST 1996.

Now this is an AWSOME maquette - Simply jaw dropping.

This was the first maquette that Illusive changed in terms of scale after smaller Ackbar and Boba Fett. It is over 2 feet wide (29 inches) and 13 inches tall and well worth the $250 price. At some point I will replace his Plywood base with a Niub sculpture of his throne.

   

Yoda's Illusive's Maquettes was the first item that got me hooked into high end collectibles. Their high quality and reasonable prices were very affordable (until the Rancor that is) ... Why / how does a company jump from $200 price range one year to $700 the year after for the same size and quality product ? Beats me!

Illusive has since lost their Star Wars licence and no longer produces Maquettes :( Sad Sad
