For our first installment of Custom Corner, we are showcasing this simply stunning Jabba the Hutt custom figure and diorama from Joe Amaro (my partner over at the Star Wars Black Series Facebook Fan Page). Scaled to match the 6" line, this amazing piece is second to none! Here's a little more from Joe on this beauty:

Jabba is made of foam, Magic Sculpt and Sculpey. The base is made of Foam and Sculpey. It took me about a month to complete him. He has some articulation in his arms and his head. Salacious is made of Magic Sculpt and is completely articulated.

For more on the process that went into making Jabba, check the post over at Joe's page HERE.
