Micro Machines Jabba the Hutt Transforming Action Set (Mos Eisley Spaceport)

September 17, 2009

This is one of the Micromachines Star Wars playsets. They are a line of toys from a few years ago that are in the shape of the heads of various characters. They open up to reveal a playset related to the character. In this case, it opens up into Mos Eisley spaceport. You might expect it to be Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine, but for whatever reason they decided to use R2-D2 for that. Since Jabba only appeared in Mos Eisley in the special editions of the movies, it’s a little bit of an odd choice.

The sculpt is excellent, as is the paint. It’s simple, but very well done. I’m not sure how they managed to out-do all of the action figure sculpts, but they did. It’s relatively large — maybe 6 inches wide and tall. It opens into three sections, with a variety of tiny figures (including a Jabba-within-a-Jabba and a Han Solo). I really enjoy these playsets. They’re well made.

      I don’t know off-hand. My guess would be $14.95.

      I’d guess around $15 or $20. You might check recent eBay sales for a better idea
