The BIG Vintage Collection News was a new Jabba's Palace playset based on the Book of Boba Fett. It includes Jabba's Dias and Bib's throne as well as the roasting spit and a wealth of plates, glasses, and food accessories.
It sits within a wider environment with the steps of the Throne room and the arch above the throne. While the Hookah and Pipe for Jabba aren't included, it would not take much to convert this to an Original Trilogy set for collectors.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
