Bib Fortuna is a Star Wars minifigure introduced in 2003. He was a Twi'lek male who was Jabba the Hutt's right-hand man, or major-domo.

Description

Bib Fortuna's Minifigure is made up of Earth Blue legs and hips, a dark blue torso with a silver chest plate, a black cape, dark blue arms with Tan hands, a wrinkled tan head, and a tan Twi'lek headpiece. He has one accessory- a dark blue cape.

In 2012 a redesign of Bib Fortuna was released with the set 9516 Jabba's Palace. He has a printed orange eyes and sharp teeth.

The 2022 Bib Fortuna, based on the post-credits scene from the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, depicts him as the new head of Jabba’s palace 5 years later. He has a new bulkier headpiece to reflect his overweight appearance, wears a black coat over his original outfit, and carries a staff that signifies him as the ruler of the criminal empire.

Background

At an early age, Bib was cast out of the Twi'lek society. He started smuggling spices, and was then found by Jabba the Hutt, who asked Fortuna to work for him. Bib accepted, and worked his way up Jabba's business, right to the top.

Given that he worked for Jabba for such a long time, it is surprising that he hated Jabba greatly. He tried many a time to get the Hutt killed.

After Jabba was killed, Bib fought a small battle over Jabba's possessions, and won. He ruled Jabba’s criminal empire for 5 years, becoming morbidly obese in the process, after which Boba Fett and Fennec Shand eventually raided the palace. Fortuna was surprised to learn that the rumors of Boba’s death were all false. Boba then shot and killed Fortuna without saying a word and took his place.
