    WOW! Just WOW! I am overwhelmed by the help today to get Jabba Plastidipped. The great news is...we got it done today. Just need to do the head, arms and door flap to enter.
    So many people to thank:
    Chris Ballard, Bryan, Kevin, Karen, Gil, Erin, Corey & Kate, Chris Solecki, Xander, Kellen, Jill, Jeff, Beckie, Aiden, Griffin, Steve, Peter Sr and William. You guys helped get this done in very little time. Here are some pics from today:

    Really glad I noticed this thread in the "what's new" button.
    It's great to see how the build has progressed with all your work and dedication. He's starting to look just like the original ROTJ Jabba.
    How heavy is he BTW? How do you move him around?

    He's not too heavy. He comes apart in three sections and is build from PVC, garden tubing, chicken wire, furniture foam and fleece. He's light, but bulky.
