4475 Jabba's Message

Name: Jabba's Message
Theme: Star Wars Episode VI
Set Number: 4475
Pieces: 44
Year released: 2003
Minifigures: 3
Price: Can't remember, but $7.00 according to Peeron


This is a funny little set. It was a cheap way to get C-3PO and R2-D2 and the only way to get the pretty awesome Bib Fortuna minifig.

Before discussing the minifigs, here's the instruction manual.

Back.

Posted Image

The minifig pages.

Posted Image

And a random page.

Posted Image

There's also a picture of how to connect this set and #4476 Jabba's Prize to #4480 Jabba's Palace (review coming soon).

Posted Image

Next up we have the minifigs. Bib Fortuna (Jabba's servant), C-3PO and R2-D2.

Posted Image

I'll start off with the least interesting figures.

C-3PO. By this point he had already appeared in a couple of other sets. I now have four of him so he's nothing special to me :tongue:  

Posted Image Posted Image

Then we have R2, who is included in a LOT of sets. I have eight of him, so again nothing special to me.

Posted Image Posted Image

The real attraction for this set is Bib Fortuna. He is a great fig, though I don't understand why he wasn't included in other sets like #6210 Jabba's Sail Barge for example.
Here's a picture of Bib Fortuna from the films. http://starwars.wiki...ib_Fortuna1.jpg
I really like his torso and headpiece.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image

Finally, there's the door to Jabba's Palace from "Star Wars episode VI: Return of the Jedi".

Posted Image Posted Image

You can move the talking (in the film anyway) eye by pushing the pole.

Posted Image

View from above.

Posted Image

You van slide the door up and down, but it won't stay open unless you hold it.

Posted Image

A close-up of the eye-piece.

Posted Image

This pin is meant to connect this set to #4480 Jabba's Palace. In the review of that set, which is coming up, I'll show how that works.

Posted Image

Two photos of the complete set.

Posted Image Posted Image

This set can also be connected to #4476 Jabba's Prize if you like.

Here are the two sets separate from each other.

Posted Image

They connect by this pin and a technic brick with a hole in the other set.

Posted Image

And this is what it looks like when they are connected.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Price: 9/10 - Worth the price if only for the awesome Bib Fortuna!
Parts: 6/10 - Nothing special, except the rare eye-piece.
Playability: 5/10 - A door that can open and close..
Minifigs: 9/10 - Awesome Bib and a cheap way to get Threepio and Artoo.
Final: 7.5/10 - This is set is good for the figs, but the door is not great.

Probably because Bib is pretty pink in the films. It would look a bit weird if his headpiece was pink and his face yellow.

Great review as always Mischa07 :thumbup:
I really like the printed eye piece on the door but I thought Bib Fortuna's headpiece was all one piece but I was wrong
I am also a big fan of Liverpool FC, Chelsea, QPR (Queens Park Rangers) , and West Bromwich Albion

He's tan, not flesh. I have him.

Great review as always, and I'm looking forward to the review of Jabba's Palace.

Thanks! Great review again  :thumbup:

I like these simple sets with awesome minifigures. They are dated before I started collecting SW Lego, so I missed out on them.  :cry_sad:
Although I did get my hands on a Bib Fortuna minifigure, which in my opinion is the reason you should buy/have bought the reviewed set.
