|Blueprint for Unproduced Micro Collection Jabba's Dungeon Playset|
|This is an original blueprint for the never-produced Jabba's Dungeon addition to Kenner's Micro Collection line. It shows line-art images of the playset from several different angles, gives measurments and lists action features which the playset was designed to incorporate.
Here's the side of the set. Those "ref. photo" comments indicate specific details which are shown elsewhere on the blueprint in a larger, more detailed format.
This top view of the toy shows the round, cup-like pieces of plastic, which I believe would have served as "nets" that could be lowered to trap unsuspecting Jedi and the like. To the right you can just make out the torture area, where, presumably, Ev-9d9 could toast the toes of the poor Gonk droid.
And here's the base, or the floor, of the playset. You can see the round areas, which correspond to the two circular "nets" mentioned above.
Finally, here is the label. While it is clearly labelled "Dungeon Room" on this blueprint, the concept painting of the set published by Tomart refer to it as the "Boiler Room." We're a bit uncertain at this point exactly what figures were being planned for inclusion in this set. Although we're aware of some Jabba-themed Micro figures that were in the works, it is unclear which scheduled Jabba set they were planned for, this Dungeon or the much larger throne room, which has also been published by Tomart. The Jabba figures I have either seen or been told were in development include the Power Droid, Gamorrean Guard, Ev-9d9, Han Solo, Jabba, Bib Fortuna and a still somewhat speculative C-3PO.
