In the Star Wars universe, Jabba the Hutt was a fearsome gangster who did business from his palace in the Outer Rim world of the planet Tatooine. His dastardly business involved enslaving intelligent beings, acts of piracy, and buying and selling illegal products. This powerful crime lord freely conducted his business until he captured Luke Skywalker’s friend, Han Solo. This made Jabba the Hutt an enemy of Luke Skywalker and eventually lead to his demise. Bring the adventures between Jabba the Hutt, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and other notable Star Wars characters to life with three LEGO sets that include Jabba’s palace and two different versions of Jabba’s sail barge. Jabba may have been feared on the planet Tatooine, but with these LEGO sets, Star Wars fans of any age can make sure that the force always wins.
LEGO Star Wars 9516 Jabba’s Palace
With the LEGO Star Wars Jabba’s Palace set, exciting scenes that happened in Jabba the Hutt’s palace from the Star Wars film Return of the Jedi can be realistically recreated. This LEGO set comes with Jabba’s Palace, a poseable Jabba the Hutt and eight other mini figures. Han Solo is included, as well as a version of Han Solo frozen in carbonite. It also includes the mischievous Salacious B. Crumb, Bib Fortuna, Chewbacca, Oola, a Gamorrean guard, and a B’Omarr monk.
Princess Leia also comes with this set in her Boushh costume. Princess Leia is on a tough mission that involves rescuing Han Solo and Chewbacca from Jabba’s palace. Jabba’s palace has a trap door under the sliding throne, flick missiles on the roof, and an entrance gate with guns. These weapons will present obstacles for the princess, but she can help even the odds with her Boushh’s lance blade that comes with this set. Other weapons included are a thermal detonator, an axe, and three different types of blasters. Jabba the Hutt’s palace is well fortified, but you can make sure the princess overcomes all these obstacles and saves Han Solo and Chewbacca.
LEGO Star Wars Jabbas Sail Barge 75020
In 2013, LEGO released a newer version of Jabba’s Sail Barge. This version comes with Jabba’s sail barge that measures 16 inches in length, rolling wheels, and a removable deck. The sides of the barge fold down as with the original version and it also contains a pirate cannon, a deck cannon, two flick missiles, and a kitchen. Princess Leia is included in her slave outfit, as well as Jabba the Hutt and R2-D2 with his serving tray.
The other mini figures in this set are Max Rebo, Weequay (a skiff guard) and Ree-Yees. The mini figures also come with weapons that include an axe and a blaster. R2-D2 and Princess Leia are trying to devise a plan to escape the clutches of the evil crime lord, and they may be able to find a way out through one of the windows on the sail barge. This set is different from the 2006 version, but with just a little bit of imagination, you can faithfully recreate exciting scenes from the Star Wars movie.

You can imagine freeing Han Solo from his carbonite prison in Jabba the Hutt’s palace, or you can help free the Princess from her enslavement on Jabba’s sail barge.
