In the LEGO Star Wars 4475 Jabba's Message, The droids have rolled up to deliver a message to Jabba the Hut. Sent by Luke Skywalker, the droids again have braved the deserts of Tatooine, though this time might be their last. Met at the door by Jabba’s Mododamo, the pair of droids might not even make it in to see Jabba. Under threat of being turned into scrap, the droids have to think up a way to get past Jabba’s guards and Bib Fortuna!
This is one of the three sets that are part of the Product Collection K4480 Jabba’s Palace Kit and it was released in 2003 as part of the Classic Star Wars theme. Although this is a smaller set, it allows builders to recreate the memorable first scene from the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi movie. This set contains the entrance to Jabba’s massive fortress and three LEGO Star Wars minifigures. The minifigures are R2-D2, C-3PO and Bib Fortuna – Jabba’s Majordomo.
Stolen from the B’omarr Monks when Jabba was a younger Hutt, the massive fortress has a large ad heavily armored front door. The working entrance allows the door to slide up and down, just as in the movie. The door is also equipped with the creepy eye sentry that was seen insulting the droids as they tried to enter the den of thieves, bounty hunters, spice traders and other vile types.
That slave driving Twi’lek from Ryloth, Bib Fortuna is one person you never want to meet. Serving as Jabba’s Majordomo for decades, this unscrupulous character gathered slave girls and other forms of entertainment for Jabba. The minifigure is wearing a headpiece that resembles Bib Fortuna’s headtail wrapped around his shoulders. With a pale tan skin, armoring vest, long cloak and matching pants, the minifigure resembles the movie character.
R2-D2, arguably one of the most amazing droids ever created, again appears as he always does. The squat little droid has his moveable legs and top decked out in the same colors and has not varied much since the first time his minifigure appeared in LEGO Star Wars sets. C-3PO, everyone’s favorite protocol droid with human-cyborg relations appears in all his golden glory. The patterns on the minifigure’s chest match those of his character, and while the head might not have too much detail on it, the minifigure is very realistic. Unlike R2-D2, C-3PO appears in very few sets, making this a good set indeed.
At 44 pieces, this is not a terribly large set. Recommended for ages 6 to 12, this is a good starting set for younger builders. Though that is true, the set does not have much play potential. None of the characters have weapons and the droids don’t actually do much in the movie, so the set is not likely to hold the attention of the younger builders for long by itself.
Will R2-D2 and C-3PO make it past the threshold of Jabba’s Palace and deliver the message to Jabba himself, or will they have to fight their way out to avoid being turned into scrap metal? Only you can decide, so buy the LEGO 4475 Jabba's Message and find out!
