Retcon source added for Hutt language and titlesEdit

This could use a source for the "Jabba the Hut" retcon. — Silly Dan 22:43, 23 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • The source in question is the marvel adapation of the original film. Mosep is specifically pictured and refered to as "the Hut." Since Jabba is never refered to in that way in person, and Mosep is never refered to as a Hutt, it is clear that there is a distinction. The Hutt Gambit by A. C. Crispin has been added as a source for the referances to Hutt culture in regards to their speech and titles. Mrwuggs 07:04, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
    • OK. I meant to ask where it has been officially stated (if indeed it has) that the appearance of "Jabba" in issue 28 was actually Mosep, or that Mosep was sometimes called "Jabba the Hut"? It's the logical assumption to make, but I just wanted to clarify it. (His appearance in issue 2, as well as Heater's appearance in the radio play, has been retconned into being the real Jabba, and his appearance in issue 37 could well be either of them.) — Silly Dan 21:37, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
      • As with many of the more obsucre continuity issues, no offical statement has been issued by Lucasfilm on the state of Mosep's character. As with who really shot first in the cantina, who really appeared to Han in the docking bay will forever be up in the air. However, most interested parties would rather that the Mosep/Heater character be explained in terms of being a part of the Star Wars story, rather than dismiss the comics and radio play, which have long been considered seminal building blocks of the EU, as some writer or artist screwing up. If you look in the "Behind the Scenes," section, I added a little blurb about the Special Edition scene alteration. Mrwuggs 00:39, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
        • I really don't want to get into a canon arguement here, but the DVD release trumps the special editions, which trump the theatrical release and older EU material. Therefore, Jabba was in that scene, and not Mosep. — Silly Dan 00:57, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
          • Also, there is a mention of "Jabba the Hut" in the ESB novelization, when Boba Fett is explaining to Vader that "the Hut" wants him alive. Mrwuggs 00:56, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
            • That may be explicable as a typo (or maybe Boba just wasn't being specific about which Jabba wanted Solo alive.) — Silly Dan 00:57, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
              • Personally, I hate saying things are "typos" or trying to defend Lucas's shameless trampling of the EU. It gives the story better flow to be able to say "hey wow, there's that wierd 'Hut' guy again from the comics. He negotiated the deal with Fett? That's cool!" rather than "Jeez another typo? When are they going to get his name right?" Anyhow, Han could have been calling the character in the comics "Susan." It wouldn't change the fact that Mosep Binneed was the guy he was talking to. We would just have to figure out what in the world Han could have meant by "Susan." Skorr does the exact same thing in the Classic Star Wars comics when he calls Dengar "Zuckuss." This is because Skorr is a moron and doesn't know his ass from his elbow, not because someone messed up the script. Mrwuggs 01:09, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
                • Good luck explaining "Ham Solo" in Han Solo and the Lost Legacy. Anyways, even if one makes a superb, logical retcon, it's fanon if it's not established in an official source. In the big scheme of things, dismissing parts of some Marvel comics and radio plays is not a big deal.-LtNOWIS 01:40, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
                  • Maybe. But there is an explanation for everything, even if Lucasfilm doesn't care to worry about every little detail of the EU. There will always be issues that need explaining. Ham Solo? A Malpropistic slurring of speech. The character meant to say Han. Mrwuggs 02:48, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Still concerned about canonicity hereEdit

I've posted a question on the official site asking it Mosep really did use the name "Jabba the Hut". If I'm told that this was not the case, I'll be rewriting this article. — Silly Dan 22:47, 24 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • To my knowledge, it has never been explicitly stated that Mosep is the Nimbanel that was impersonating Jabba the Hut(t) in the Marvel Comics. However, he *is* the most reasonable choice, so keeping the info you rewrite for the Behind the Scenes section would probably be appropriate. jSarek 01:22, 25 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • The thing I'm worried about is this passage in Jabba's databank entry: "When he was finally revealed to be a large sluglike creature in Return of the Jedi, Marvel's Jabba was proven apocryphal. (...) Marvel's Jabba attempted to collect the debt Han owed him, and confronted the smuggler on the planet Orleon. The two fled the world when they discovered it was infested with stone mites. (...) While this particular version of these events didn't happen, it is still possible that the Orleon incident did occur." This could be interpreted as we have it here, as having Jabba the two-T Hutt appearing on Orleon, or has retconning the whole story away. — Silly Dan 02:22, 25 Oct 2005 (UTC)
      • Another note: doing a google search on "mosep" + "hut" turns up several message board posts, but no official statements, saying that Mosep was "the Hut". Some of these reference an article on (probably the Pablo Hidalgo article I've already referenced), while others mention the Star Wars Encyclopedia. Could someone please check on this? — Silly Dan 20:20, 28 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Abel G. Peña speaksEdit

Abel G. Peña said here: Well, I double-checked the Encyclopedia to make sure, but no, I'm not aware of any official retcon that says Mosep impersonated Jabba. This certainly seems like the most logical fix for Marvel's skinny Jabba, but nothing that's been canonized yet. There is still the small issue of character: Mosep doesn't seem very tough in his appearance in "Spare Parts," while skinny Jabba's got the weight of a true villain..

Mr. Peña's not as authoritative as Leland Chee, but he owns a copy of Star Wars Encyclopedia (unlike me), and really knows his continuity. Looks like we need to move most of this article to the BTS section, tone down the speculation, edit Jabba the Hutt.... — Silly Dan 03:56, 2 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Mosep Binneed vs Tawss Khaa Edit

Tawss Khaa has been identified by Decipher, using an actual movie screenshot, as the Nimbanel walking around in Mos Eisley after Luke and Ben left the cantina. And is there any source confirming that Binneed is indeed the Nimbanel in the cantina before that? I am going to remove the part with Binneed walking around in the Wioslea scene, as that is Tawss Khaa. Hanzo Hasashi 05:10, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • Addendum: apparently Jabba's Databank behind the scenes actually has confirmation that Mosep Binneed is briefly glimpsed during the Mos Eisley scenes, and that is all it says. Should it thus be assumed that perhaps Mosep was the Nimbanel in the cantina after all, while Tawss was the one in the streets? Hanzo Hasashi 05:23, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
  • Disregard both of the above, my mistake. Hanzo Hasashi 05:49, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Update needed Edit

While I know the update tag is already in existence, what I can say is that, in Star Wars Insider 130, Mosep is also revealed to be in Jabba's Palace in Return of the Jedi. Hanzo Hasashi 06:25, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey, take a look at Forum:SH:More Mos Eisley Madness. Let's discuss there, since the Insider article throws a lot of previous identifications in question. ~SavageBOB sig 16:14, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
