Finally after a long time I received the LEGO Jabba's Sail Barge. A nice addition to my collection and homage to the original trilogy films. The scene of Luke escaping from Jabba using his Jedi skills is iconic and well known.
I plan to combine this with the 9496 Desert Skiff set. Both added together will make a nice diorama of the scene.
This set comes with a poster, and my set also came with a promotional LEGO Star Wars storage box with 2 compartments.
History of Jabba's Sail Barge
The Khetanna was an LO-KD57 luxury sail barge manufactured by Ubrikkian Industries that was modified to suit the needs of the Hutt crime lord Jabba. After the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker killed Jabba's pet rancor Pateesa, the crime lord demanded Skywalker and his companions Han Solo and Chewbacca be executed at the Great Pit of Carkoon. The Hutt and his entourage traveled to the pit in Khetanna in order to view the executions, but the prisoners managed to board the sail barge and kill Jabba, destroying the sail barge as they escaped.
