See How 'Jabba The Hutt' Could Have Looked In RETURN OF THE JEDI

Before they settled on the slimy space-slug appearance of the villainous gangster from Return Of The Jedi, Jabba went through a few drastically different looks. Check out some unused concept designs and early comic book sketches of the character after the jump.

Some interesting designs for sure, but I think they went with the best one in the end. Jabba is one of the characters that has been rumored to be the focus of a planned Star Wars Episode VII spin-off, although in fairness, who hasn't been at this stage? Do you like that idea..or do you think they should focus on the actual humanoid characters that would be played by an actor?

The last one could very well give you nightmares.

Jabba could've been more than a rip off of Duke Leto Atreides II.

These designs are new to the site, and no it isn't's what it says it is : "See How 'Jabba The Hutt' Could Have Looked In RETURN OF THE JEDI". If that doesn't sound like something you wanna see, don't click on it.

Star Wars has always been racist.

Crazy black Darth Vader with all his white slaves. Its very offensive.
Pasto - 2/5/2014, 8:08 AM
lmfao Corn.

If this was the final one, cosplays of Jabba would be a lot more frequent...

@Ror-Was the third one down from the Marvel Comic adaptation?
datNAMEtho - 2/5/2014, 11:31 AM
Imagine how Chewbacca and Jabba would look like if they were made now (yes if done with make-up, not mo-cap). Great.
mgeoff88 - 2/5/2014, 7:34 PM
Wow... I'm happy with what we got in in ROTJ. Some of these concepts are creepy as hell.
darthballz - 2/5/2014, 11:33 PM
LMAO. I think that 2nd one i used to mow her lawn.
RolandD - 2/6/2014, 7:01 AM
Answered my own question. My memory served me well. Googled Jabba. When Marvel did it's first adaptation of Star Wars, before it was known as A New Hope, Jabba had not yet been designed by Lucas and company. They made up version three for the comic.
