He may not be among the cast members of Episode VII, but Jabba the Hutt will be at Comic-Con 2014 nonetheless as one of Hasbro’s Black Series collectibles.
Seen here for the first time, the 6-inch toy captures Tatooine’s giant slug-like gangster in all his frog-slurping glory, complete with hookah (I hope you have a prescription for what’s in there, Jabba), and cackling, diminutive sidekick Salacious Crumb.*
The figures are packed in a display that recreates the villains throne room lair from Return of the Jedi, including space for last year’s Comic-Con exclusive toy, a Carbonite-frozen Han Solo.
Each year, Hasbro crafts a selection of toys that are exclusive to San Diego’s Comic-Con gathering. Some are later sold on HasbroToyShop.com, but it’s always a limited run. Good luck finding that Solo from last year.

The box also comes with a little Huttese: “Peecha wangee cogh pah. Tong nam nee took chan kee troi. Soo thawt du mah kee chalia.” That translates as: “I will not give up my favorite decoration. I like Captain Solo where he is.”
*Actual cackling not included.
