Jabba the Hutt “Slime Magazine” Pin from Disney
Disney recently released a series of “magazine” themed Star Wars pins. The idea is that each looks like a faux magazine cover with a Star Wars character on it. They’re sold in sets of two, with one “revealed” (visible in the package) and the other concealed until you buy it and open it. As you can see here, the good characters are the “revealed” ones and the bad guys are concealed (and randomly packed to boot). So if you want a particular baddy you will have to buy a few and hope you get it. I just got this on eBay instead.
It’s a rather large metal pin at 1.5 x 2 inches in size. As you can probably tell, it seems to be mimicking the look of Time Magazine. The headline “Inside Jabba’s Hut” is sort of an inside joke of sorts, since these pins are sold at Walt Disney World’s Jabba’s Hut gift shop.
Disney also made a Jabba & Slave Leia pin for Star Wars Weekends 2006.
