Detailed LEGO Diorama Shows How Boba Fett Escaped the Sarlacc

Boba Fett met his doom upon the sands of Tatooine in Return of the Jedi. He fell into the Great Pit of Carkoon into the mouth of the fearful and if we’re being honest, really gross, Sarlacc. It’s an awful fate that means he’ll be kept alive and slowly digested for over a thousand years. Yuck. Stories in Star Wars Legends (non-canon) have resurrected Boba Fett by claiming he managed to crawl out of the pit and avoid being consumed by the Sarlacc, but LEGO builder Daniel Stoeffler has come up with another idea and he brought his story to life with a massive, detailed diorama.


Stoeffler made the MOC (My Own Creation) for a Star Wars contest hosted at TechLug. The directive of the contest was to use LEGO bricks to show how Boba Fett escaped, and Stoeffler got ridiculously creative. He laid it all out at Eurobricks. In his world, the Pit of Carkoon isn’t just home to a monster. No, it’s a Jawa-run distillery. Of course. Industrious Jawas collect the digestive juice from the Sarlacc and filter it to produce a nectar from the juice’s neurotoxin. The finished product, called Jawa juice or Nectar of the Sarlacc, is beloved throughout the galaxy. But if it’s such a successful business, I’m not sure why Jawas are still scavengers.

Anyway, the juices flow through a small hole in one of the Sarlacc’s upper stomachs. As Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc’s belly, he spotted one of the hoses the Jawas used in production. He followed it and escaped through the hole; the Jawas found him and helped him heal. Tada!

What. A. Story. See some of Boba Fett’s escape depicted in the below gallery:

See several more pictures of the build at Flickr. Do you think that the survival of Boba Fett should be canon? Let us know in the comments.

    What’s with the giant vagina? is Boba literally rolling in the pussy?

  2. Derek says:

    Actually the fact that Jawas are still scavengers despite the success of Jawa Juice is easy to explain. They hand-craft an artisan beverage so they’re obviously hipsters. Being hipsters, they’re also freegans – so scavenging is a socially-conscious effort to minimize their impact on the ecology of Tatooine. (They also liked blue milk before it went mainstream.)

    Futurama Slurm much?

  4. james carroll says:

    First of all boba escaped the sarlaac by using his jetpack. Then came back in slave 1 and burned the sarlaac with his engines. This is already canon i don’t care if disney threw out everything from the books i still have them and their still canon to me. Screw disney and may they rot in hell for changing what didn’t need to be changed.

    I’m confused as to how the mouth is on the side yet the cutaway with boba is on the corner

    Yet, in the EU they explained it simply as him throwing a Detonator down the beasts throat forcing it to regurgitate him… “Bounty Hunter Wars / Mandalorian Armor, Trilogy”
