Just Announced, the Action Figure cover variant for Star Wars #51 by John Tyler Christopher, featuring a Jabba The Hutt Wraparound cover. Available to order August 23rd at 6pm EST.
Limited Edition Pre-Order Starts Thursday, August 23rd at 6pm EST! This is a BIG one, maybe too BIG… Man, oh man! I’ve been saying this for a while now, but I feel compelled to keep saying it. THANK YOU! You all continue to humble me. Bossk was another awesome experience, and I am so grateful to everyone who continues to support us and allow me to continue living my dream. A special side of love must go out to my man Bossk’s Bounty for helping me announce our favorite bounty hunter! This is one I know a lot of you have been waiting for! We’ve discussed for a long time how we might handle some of the larger figures, and we wanted to make sure we did it right. We always knew the big guys were going to require a double page spread, which for me, was always something I wanted to make. I’ve been playing with this one for awhile now, but one thing kept getting in the way. His sweet slab and hookah simply couldn’t fit in the packaging. If I wanted to keep him roughly to scale, his slab would stretch almost the entire distance of the wrap around cover. I played with sitting him on top of it, and his head poked up and ruined the side illustration and the name plate. I even tried setting it as a top down view, but then it covered everything! I already had to shrink his tail a bit, so it boiled down to either scrapping the accessories, or making it look like a cluttered mess. This is one of those times were I had to make an executive decision, and as much as I love those cyclops spinning gargoyles, it had to go. I have already poured some out for it, but at least I was able to include my favorite monkey-lizard! So not only is this literally a BIG one; it’s also big, because if this is successful, it could open the door to some other characters we weren’t sure we could do (like maybe a certain giant pet, who has a taste for pork 😉 ) So with all that out of the way it’s my pleasure to announce the BIGGEST Star Wars Action Figure cover to date the Kingpin of the Outer Rim… – JTC EXCLUSIVE full-color JABBA THE HUTT Action Figure Variant for Star Wars #51, exclusively at johntylerchristopher.com Jabba The Hutt He will be available for Pre-sale on August 23rd. Like before, we are offering graded books of 9.6 or better from both CGC & CBCS. You get to choose between two exceptional grading services. The book will be limited to 3,000. So with that out of the way, here’s the slim. Jabba ate my tape… Not sure how many of you remember video cassettes. And of those of you who do, how many of you remember BETA?!?! When I was a kid, we had an awesome BETAMAX player with a corded remote control (the FUTURE!). We had all the classics; Ghostbusters, Predator, Robocop & Willow. But what I really wanted was the original trilogy. Again, for you young whippersnappers, back in the day, movies for your home weren’t $20. Some of these bad boys cost as much as $70! So the idea of getting all three Star Wars was just not something we could afford. Well, one year I must have been a REALLY good boy, because under the Christmas tree there it was! The first thing I did was put in Return of the Jedi and watched the crap out of Jabba’s Palace. I watched that (and the ending) so many times, my tape started to get the streaks and I eventually choked the tape out like a Princess v. Slug! It will go down as one of my favorite Christmas gifts ever, and I still miss the feel and the weight of those big, Hutt-like tapes!
