I happened upon a yardsale on my way back from an appointment. I almost drove by as it had mostly baby clothes on display along with nik-naks. As I drove by I did spy some tools under a table so i turned around to check them out. It turned out that the tools were shot and there was nothing else of interest. As I walked back to my car I noticed something under a table in the grass. I almost kept walking when I gave it a second look and realized what it was. I asked the woman what her price was and she said she could not take less than $40. I told her I only had a $20 and proceeded on to my car. As I was closing the door she brought it to me and said "I'll take $20. It's ugly and has been in my junk room for almost 10 years anyway. I loaded it in and brought it home to my son. When he got home and uncovered it the shock was worth anything I could have paid. I had bought him the Illusive concepts Jabba the Hut. He has had such a rough time with his brain injury that the smile seemed to lift his depression and frustration. It was a great deal at $20!!!! One question - how do you clean it? It is in great shape for being latex and from the 90s - no cracks or oozing - great paint job too! Is there a way to seal or protect it to slow or prevent the deterioration? Help would be appreciated!

Sorry, no real suggestions, but congratulations on your find! Is it possible you could contact the original manufacturer?

I just wanted to add that, having to Google your find to even understand exactly what it is, it got me thinking: How cool it would be if Hasbro would revisit the conceptual figure sub-line and tackle some of the discarded Jabba the Hutt designs.
