I should have known Sideshow would be celebrating today – they’ve got a special May the Fourth landing page for Star Wars Day that highlights a free keychain promotion. But before you scoff at such a meager offering that wouldn’t befit even the Rebel scum, they also have a giveaway for all the Sideshow 1/6 scale pieces to recreate Jabba the Hutt’s throne room. It includes Jabba himself, his throne, Bib Fortuna, Princess Leia in her bounty hunter disguise, all of Jabba’s little creaturs including Salacious Crumb, and Han Solo encased in Carbonite – that’s a pretty amazing prize pack.
This is the kind of giveaway that I’d love to win but would ruin me. So far I’ve escaped collecting Star Wars, but if I got a jump start in 1/6 scale like this? Not even Yoda would be able to stop me.
