The figure was released in a beautifully designed convention excluisve box which included the railing, the hookah pipe and a never-before-made Salacious B. The throne is shorter in height and length than the vintage Kenner 1983 version, but it's deeper which gives Jabba more room on the throne. There were no second chances with Jabba, something Han Solo would find out – though the slug-like alien would ultimately fall victim to his own hubris and vengeful ways. The idea of this Jabba toy is you load him up with slime and little plastic frogs, squeeze him and slime will leak out of his mouth. In addition to the wire in the tail, Hasbro gave Jabba ball-jointed shoulders, ball-jointed elbows and a swivel head.

I don’t know what circumstances occurred for Jabba to empty his stomach like this, but I guess that’s for whoever is playing with the toy to decide. Turning off the personalized advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. The only action feature in this figure is the mouth area, it can be pushed in, which then reveals a nicely detailed open mouth. This Jabba The Hutt figure was released five years after the "glob version" and it seemed to have a slightly bigger body (despite the exact same 1998 date stamp on the bottom as the "glob Jabba") and an all new head sculpt.

You can clearly see that this figure is based on the previously released Black Series 6" Jabba The Hutt figure, especially the white drool markings stand out in comparison. This Jabba The Hutt figure was released in August/September 2010 as a Walmart exclusive and for the first time since 1983, Hasbro released a full Jabba set which included a newly sculpted throne. Since then Star Wars Collectors have seen a total of 9 different Jabba The Hutt figures for the 3 3/4 inch compatible scale and two Jabba The Hutt releases in the 6 inch scale (both of them were identical, but the packaging was different). Hasbro did something similar with 2013's Boba Fett but it just seems egregious for Jabba to not come with anything. Royal Mail cut off time for same day dispatch is 2pm, however on busy days we can not guarantee an item goes out the same day.com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. This deluxe set includes the portly crime lord, Jabba the Hutt, whose body is largely cast in a softer, flesh-feeling plastic, and whose arm rotation controls Jabba's mouth. Jabba is based on the scene where he bites the head off of a Chuba and spits it at a gong to start the podrace in The Phantom Menace.

Sometimes I encounter a toy or a plaything that makes me really question what the hell the designers were thinking. The most accomplished Jabba The Hutt figures released are either the 1983 vintage Jabba, or the 27 years later released 2010 Walmart exclusive Jabba, simply because they were sculpted nicely and included the throne, extra figures and accessories. Probably as an effort to reduce costs since he's a pretty large figure, Hasbro did cast Jabba's lower body as a rotocast plastic piece. Compared with the other Jabba The Hutt figures made for the 3 3/4 inch scale, which have their tails to the side, this version stands the tallest.

It's interesting that Hasbro chose to give Jabba an honest to goodness action feature as I can't think of any figure in the line that had one (well, maybe R2-D2's retractable leg might count) at this point. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy.

It's also worth mentioning that Kenner gave Jabba 3 fingers on the right hand, and 4 fingers on the left, while all other Jabba figures have 4, except for the 2010 release which has 3 fingers on both hands. Again, considering this guy was a mass market release, I'm really impressed by the very lifelike eyes (well, you know, lifelike so far as Hutts go) and the drool coming out of his mouth.The hidden action feature can be triggered when one of Jabba's arms is moved down, it opens the mouth and reveals Jabba's tongue. Whether this is just the paint chipping away or the plastic beginning to deteriorate remains to be seen, but it's pretty frustrating.
