Bib Fortuna - Pipeline Reveal from the I Am Your Fathers Day: Star Wars Livestream 06.09.21. Seems this is the "Providence" codename.

Yeeeessss! Finally. My 6 inch Jabba needs his aid/translator so bad. Can't wait to see a prototype. I'm glad that they did not go with his Mandalorian season 2 look, lol.

He's had a spot reserved on my shelf next to Jabba for a loooong time now... can't wait to fill that spot. :)

At last! We're getting there slowly with a good Jabba set up. By the time of ROTJ40, could be great. So looking forward to getting Bib!
If the Haslab project really does turn out to be a Rancor or maybe even some kind of Jabba's palace throne room diorama setup I'm gonna be one happy collector👍

WOW!

As someone who had their 8th birthday party in the movie theater for the debut of ROTJ with 10 of my friends.....Bib Fortuna has always had a special place in my heart.

Travesty that it took this long to get a 6inch release.

Can't wait to add him to my Jabba's Palace shelf.

There was a fantastic Fat-Tuna custom recently posted on Instagram by Fredrick Faith:

If you haven’t heard of Faith, check out his page. He’s an incredible customizer.

Incidentally, yesterday’s announcements seem to have caught Faith with an ROTJ Bib custom in progress. Here’s hoping he posts it anyway.

Fat-Tuna? :) Sounds kind of underworld-ish
With ROTJ Fit-Tuna someone will probably customize a fat version.
Hasbro can give us a reissue with new torso next year or maybe it’s the exclusive figure with a haslab throne room.

Much needed and very fitting, he’ll go with Jabba and crew.

Pretty cool! He’s always been one of my favorite aliens in the films. So creepy!

I wonder how much over-engineered articulation they put under the plastic robes.

That blue skin looks more than a bit too much, but it's likely over-saturation on the post-production side (who is editing these things???)

And what are those accessories?

It was on the production sample Chris held up as well.
