Entertainment Weekly Reveals SDCC 2014 Exclusive Star Wars Black Jabba the Hutt
May 3, 2014

Today, as part of Star Wars Day/weekend, Entertainment Weekly revealed the details of the San Diego Comic Con Exclusive 6″ scale Hasbro Star Wars Back Jabba the Hutt figure.   Hasbro strongly hinted at their collector press day at Toy Fair 2014 back in February that a version of Jabba with Salacious Crumb would be the SDCC exclusive this year.    The Jabba figure will also see release in the regular, retail line but with different packaging and without Salacious Crumb.


The packaging for this exclusive looks like Jabba’s throne room and includes a spot where you can insert the Star Wars Black Han Solo in Carbonite Block from last year’s Hasbro SDCC exclusive.


You can see more images of the figure and the packaging and read more details on the EW.com website.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    So disappointing. I am trying to pick out the figures to buy from this and absolutely wanted the fancy jaba. But now that I know it doesn’t come with a salacious? Not worth it. He was the fun part that survived the original set.

    Agreed. I’m not that keen to get Jabba on his own. This should have been the general release imo.
