You can now own an official full-sized replica of Jabba’s pet (?) Salacious B. Crumb. Starting on August 24th, Regal Robot will be taking orders on the 1:1 Star Wars prop replica.
Mr. Crumb will cost $3,999 but can also be purchased through an installment plan spread over eight months. Salacious is hand-crafted and sourced from the original puppet created by The Jim Henson Company. The little Kowakian monkey-lizard appeared in Return of the Jedi. His mocking laugh is as memorable as Jabba’s.

There have been a few Salacious replicas to spring up over the years. This one, by far is the most accurate. Regal Robot captured the symmetry of the head perfectly. Some replicas are floating around out there that look like they were based on the prototype maquettes rather than the actual prop.
Is $4k too much to ask for the little goblin? So what other creatures from the Star Wars universe should Regal Robot bring to the market? They’ve already tackled Chewie and some others. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
