Yes, It Exists: Jabba The Hutt Playset

It makes sense that I am not the biggest Star Wars fan, because I had no idea that a Jabba The Hutt Playset even existed until I saw this one on display at the Museum of the Moving Image (visit recommended) in Queens over the weekend. It just seems so…wrong. I don’t know.

But yes, this is a thing made by the Kenner Toy Company in 1983 as a tie-in to Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. As a tableau, the details are pretty cool and you can see it comes with Jabba’s trademark Hookah pipe and his little Court Jester guy, Salacious Crumb. As far as I can a tell though, Slave Leia is not included.

If you now feel like you simply must own one, these things sell on eBay for between $30 and $100, depending on the condition. Not too dear at all.
