It isn’t too often that you need a Lazy Susan to appreciate every last detail on a Star Wars collectible, but perhaps the Princess Leia Organa As Jabba’s Slave animated Maquette is best served on one of them. The Maquette is loaded with detail top to bottom, left to right and front to back. It’s sensory overload in the palm of your hand and it’s absolutely one of Gentle Giant’s finest pieces of work of all time. Sleek, sexy, and maybe even borderline erogenous are words that could explicitly describe this Maquette, but sometimes Star Wars collectibles have that impact. We hope that this doesn’t come across as too perverted. But Princess Leia Organa As Jabba’s Slave ever since her first (and only) appearance in Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi has burned her image on the collector psyche in way very few female character have or will.
In a rare move, Gentle Giant Ltd.. gave this Maquette mixed media. Not only is she mostly comprised of high quality polystone, Princess Leia Organa is adorned with a real metal chain and the “gargoyles” along the base have real metal rings. The paint job on this Maquette is exquisite. The heads around the border of the base have a blue wash to recreate the copper quality of them. And the various colors used to recreate and animated version of Princess Leia Organa and her immediate surroundings is nothing short of amazing. Salacious B. Crumb is crouched up against her and have a look like he is the luckiest monkey-lizard this side of the galaxy. (And he likely is.) Gentle Giant Ltd.. gave Crumb a very creepy presence but he interestingly complements the very, very sexy stature of Princess Leia Organa very well. As a duo, this Maquette brings the perfect combination of friend and foe into one colorful and magnificent sculpture.
