Star Wars Pop! Vinyl Jabba the Hutt 3-Pack

Are you a Funko fanatic? These days it’s kinda hard NOT to be one! Funko has worked their way into every property license imaginable bringing those awkward big heads and happy faces to all facets of entertainment.

Star Wars is easily one of the most marketable franchises ever and Funko has certainly reinforced that. Personally, I think Pop! Vinyl’s pairing with a Star Wars is rivaled only by LEGO’s deserving foothold in a galaxy far, far away.

Looking for a Star Wars Pop! that will stand out among the multitude of other great vinyl options? Look no further than…..

Star Wars Pop! Vinyl Jabba the Hutt 3-Pack

Jabba the Hutt isn’t a stranger to the Pop! Vinyl medium, however, his past appearances have seen him reduced from his true gluttonous glory. This version is enormous! It’s very true to the sleeping, snacking, laughing slug we all know and love from Return of the Jedi.

As if this was wasn’t already a ‘must own’, they also included Slave Leia and Salacious B. Crumb to recreate the entire scene from Jabba’s sail barge. Each character is perfectly sized to make the entire package true to the source material. Salacious B. Crumb is especially fantastic because his shape is unconventional from what Funko has done before.

I love that the base recreates Jabba’s platform but wish it was made of a slightly more durable material than simple cost-cutting cardboard. Most collectors (who dare to remove it from the box) would probably pay a few bucks more if the base felt like more than packing material. Leia is also a tad unstable because of the standard giant bobblehead sitting atop a non-centered frame. Those two factors are enough for me to deduct half a point from my final rating.

Unfortunately, Jabba’s set is exclusive to Walmart but that does ensure it’s cost is lower than it might be elsewhere. Thirty bucks is a downright steal for a what you’re getting! Look for it in your local store closer to the front where they keep the trading cards and other Pop! figures.

My rating of the Star Wars Pop! Vinyl Jabba the Hutt 3-Pack is 9.5 out of 10.
