Jabba was not killed by Princess Leia, but merely put into a catatonic state from which he quickly regained consciousness. He suffered major injuries in his escape from the exploding sail barge. During his lengthy recovery and rehabilitation, Jabba lost almost all control of his criminal empire. He lives now, unfavored in the Hutt community, in self-exile, planning his ultimate revenge against Solo and his friends. — SparkArt!
People argue that the Lego Big Figures and the BURPs (Big Ugly Rock Piece) are hard to use in any way other then what was intended. Then someone comes along and does something completely original and proves otherwise. Here, SparkArt!, removed Jabba’s lower half and replaced it with a robot body. Creating the universes most disgusting cyborg. This idea is completely plausible as it has precedence in the Clone Wars series. The blaster holster is strangely adorable.

Science Fiction and the Lego Friends make for a strange combination that works well. Flickr user, colgs3b, has been building a whole series of Hardsuits for the Friends. These mechas appear to be in scale with the other Lego Friends figures. But you wont find them tending horses of farming. Although they may train in Karate during their off time. The first of the Hardsuit Friends is Blacktron Olivia. Using theming elements from the classic Lego Blacktron, Olivia looks like someone you would not want to mess with.
Olivia is not fighting alone. Her mother is also on the front lines wielding a massive gun and a deceptively friendly pink and teal paint scheme.
Hardsuit Stephanie is also present. With a purple and teal and yellow suit. Stephanie appears to be able to fly. Making her extremely dangerous.
When in danger the strongest Hardsuits are needed to hold the front line. Here M-Tron Mia is ready to defend against anything. Make sure to be very careful as her magnet technology is extremely deadly.

These Lego Friends inspired cyborgs are the creation of Larry Lars. Who has been refining the robotic body for a few years now. Which has paid off well with these awesome cyborgs. The first one (white, black hair) was created in 2012, while the newest (white, red hair and blue) are from 2013. The compact building style looks extremely delicate, but the end result is worth it. This is a great example of the Lego telephone being put to use. These Lego Friend Cyborgs look like they could fit into a Masamune Shirow manga (Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell).
Lego made a smart move by allowing the Lego Friends figures to fit into the Lego System. This allows the various body parts to be mix and matched with other Lego pieces. The Lego Minifigure style hair can be used on the Friends figures. This greatly expands the available hair styles for your figures. Here the Lego Friends head has been matched with the anime style Minifig hair from the Exo-Force theme.
