Incredible Star Wars LEGO Boba Fett/Sarlacc Set

If we ever fell into the belly of a Sarlacc, we’d be bricking it.
 
Star Wars aficionado Dan Stoeffler clearly shares our fears – and then some, reimagining Boba Fett’s fateful meeting with the saga’s most carnivorous pit-dwelling monster in LEGO form.
 
In case you’ve forgotten, Han Solo set off Fett’s rocket pack, sending the cult hero flying into the Sarlacc and certain death in Return Of The Jedi. Only it transpired that he somehow managed to escape certain death from the bowels of the beast - George Lucas reported telling a Star Wars historian this is the case. But how? Stoeffler thinks he has the answer...

As much diorama as plaything, he uses cross-sections of this impressively huge and well-detailed set to air his own theories about how the bounty hunter escaped. One part of this – and bear with us – is that the bounty hunter helped run a 'Jawa distillery' while festering inside the creature, in turn creating the greatest booze in the whole of the universe.
 
How? Why? Does George Lucas even know? We’ll let Stoeffler himself explain: “The story of the discovery of the caves and of the oozing wound into one of the stomach of the Sarlacc by a forefather of our young jawa has nearly been forgotten and is only related by the shaman of the clan. It seems that a metallic part buried deep into the sand injured the Sarlacc during its growth and has done a small hole into one of its upper stomaches. The acid digestive juice oozing from the wound during a long period has dug a tunnel up to a large cave which had a crack going to the surface. This crack, which has been discovered by the forefather, is today used as emergency exit.”

Yep, makes sense to us. That, or we're swung by much we want to buy the set itself.
 
It’s sure to fetch a Boba or two...
