Compare this Jabba The Hutt figure
This animated style Jabba The Hutt figure was released in a battlepack in April 2009 together with a TC-70 figure. Jabba The Hutt was featured in the Clone Wars animated movie - with the plot focusing on his lost son Rotta The Hutt.
There have been quite a few Jabba The Hutt figures released over the years - but this is the first animated style Jabba. The figure has a total of 8 joints - which is quite an achievement - considering that the character doesn't have any legs - knees or ankles. You can turn the head sideways - move both arms on the shoulders - elbows and wrists. On top of that - when you move any of the arms down slowly - Jabba's mouth will move. Unfortunately - Hasbro didn't include a dais with the figure - but they included Jabba's signature hooka pipe with a bowl and the throne railing. The pipe fits very well into both of Jabba's hands - and the railing with the bowl has the correct height to fit just nicely next to the figure.
The paint application is well applied with different shades of green - and a more "roughed up" look towards the bottom of the figure. There are plenty of subtle details in Jabba's face which all in all capture the Hutt's aesthetics very well. Overall - this Jabba The Hutt figure should please fans of the animated Clone Wars TV show - not only has it more joints than any other previously released Jabba figure - but it also looks very closely to what was seen in the Clone Wars movie.

Obi-Wan goes to Jabba’s Palace to finalize an important alliance for the Republic in return for rescuing the Hutt’s kidnapped son. Kenobi believes the negotiations have been successful - but Count Dooku secretly arrives later and convinces Jabba that the Jedi are not rescuing Rotta but - instead - have kidnapped and killed the boy. Betrayal and lies fly thick and fast as the courteous protocol droid TC-70 translates Jabba’s comments for the visitors. The Hutt relishes this moment: the high-and-mighty Jedi have come to him for his permission to let Republic forces pass safely through systems he controls.
