Remember the scene from 1983’s Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi where Princess Leia was enslaved by Jabba the Hutt? I thought it was a rather sexist scene. You know. Scantily clad Leia, chained and all? Then, it all changed when the Princess brutally strangled the giant piece of alien shit with the chain.
Damn. That was like going from porn to action movie. Anywho… LEGO artist Iain Heath aka Ochre Jelly has recreated the brutal but strangely satisfying scene in LEGO, called Leia the Huttslayer LEGO Sculpture.
The said scene is now forever immortalized in bricks as a LEGO diorama/sculpture measuring 12 inches tall, 15 inches wide and 8 inches deep (30 x 38 x 20 centimeters) and it looks absolutely dope.
And it is totally kid-friendly now because, dear Princess is not as sexy as she was in the movie because, LEGO bricks and also, croissant elements for breast. Jokes aside, I am pretty impressed by the solid Jabba the Hutt built.
Iain has captured the details right down to the asymmetrical eyes and tongue sticking out as alien scum drew his last breath.
Now, for the good news. You can actually own the Leia the Huttslayer LEGO Sculpture and you don’t even need to build it.
Lain is selling it on Etsy as a sculpture and it can be yours for $299.99. It is worthy to note that the sculpture will be glued to ensure “it lasts forever.”
