Who wouldn’t want a life-size 3D printed Jabba in their living room?

That's what YT channel Mighty Jabba's Collection did in this video series

Who has never dreamed of having a life-size 3D printed Jabba the Hut in their living room? When affordable 3D printers became a reality, they made it possible for these highly personalized “dreams” to come true.  In what is certainly an effective promotional campaign, the YouTube channel Mighty Jabba’s Collection created a life-size replica of the popular gangster from the Star Wars Universe.

The series of making-of videos was sponsored by MakerGeeks, who also provided the filaments. The model was digitally sculpted by Josh Smith from Beast Toys. If you want to give it a stab, it can be downloaded from both Thingiverse and Cults3D. The printers used are CR-10 GearBest. Several coupons are availlabe on the YouTube page to purchase them at discounted prices.
