Star Wars Black Series - Jabba The Hutt

May the 4th be with you!

This weekend at Daxie Boy Toys I revealed my newest custom of Jabba the Hutt and Salacious Crumb in the new Star Wars Black Series 6" scale. I decided to make them as soon as I heard we were getting Boba Fett at SDCC! A big thanks to Gino Ybarra for helping me out.

The biggest compliment/question I kept getting this weekend was...is that the Sideshow Jabba?
Ha Ha, nope that is mine!

Below are a bunch of pictures of the figures and underneath those are some work-in-progress pictures of how I made them. There is a also a sneak peek below of the next figure we are working on.

 Jabba's arms are poaseable
 






Salacious Crumb is fully poseable

 Here is a DC Universe Batman for scale
 Gamorrean Guard in progress




Jabba started out in foam
 Next I covered him and shaped him using Magic Sculpt
Salacious was sculpted using Magic Sculpt 


Now I added my own mix of Sculpy for the detail

  10. in the one pic you added your own mix of Sculpy for the detail. Is that the brand sculpy that is baked in an oven? or is that your own custom mix?
