Vintage Jabba the Hutt Dungeon Action Playset by Kenner (POTF Version)
There are two versions of the Jabba the Hutt Dungeon Action Playset. I wrote about the more common of the two a while back. That version came out first, and included Klaatu, Nikto, and 8D8 figures. The version I’m writing about today came out a bit later, and has a different box (with distinctive green background) and three different figures (EV-9D9, Amanaman, and Barada). While not truly rare, it’s considerably more valuable than the earlier version, mostly because of the figures it includes, which are less common and relatively sought-after. It took me quite a while to find one of these sets for a decent price with the figures included.
One other difference is the color of the base and crane. The original version had a gray base and dark gray crane, while this version has a light brown base and dark brown crane.
I mentioned in my post about the other version of this set that one of the pictures on the side had a sticker placed over the caption, changing the text. It went from “The branding iron will torture any Droids in JABBA’S DUNGEON” to ”Use the branding iron on any Droids in JABBA’S DUNGEON.” My theory is that they felt that the original description was a bit too graphic for a child’s toy, but didn’t catch it in time to change the actual box. In this version there is a similar message, but if anything it’s even more child-friendly, reading, “You can pretend all DROIDS are in for a hot time with the branding iron accessory.”
