Bring me the head of Jabba the Hut

Posted in Identify Help

This is just a funny story from ages past. Long ago there was (and still is) a bargain store known as building 19 in the Boston area. They sell whatever crap they can buy cheap. So just after the first Star Wars figures peaked I was in there one day and they had a case of Jabba heads. Not the body, just the head. Hundreds of them. They generally have fun signs all over the place and this one said they were selling the heads for 19 cents each, and they had no idea what you could do with them, but one of the suggestions was to use it as a cap on a bottle of catsup. I tried really, really hard to come up with reasons to buy a lot of them, but couldn't, so I just bought one (somewhere around the house). To this day I have no idea why they had found a case of the heads, but this was when things were still made in America so who knows.

Somewhere out there may be the guy who bought them and made something really cool.
