Vintage Jabba the Hutt and Sy Snootles Candy Containers by Topps

February 23, 2010

These are small injection-molded plastic containers that held candy and were put out by Topps around the time of the Return of the Jedi. I imagine these were the kind of thing that might have been placed near the cash register in stores. As this ad sheet shows (the picture is from an ebay auction), there were 6 containers all together for the ROTJ wave: Jabba, Sy Snootles, two different Ewoks, Admiral Ackbar, and Darth Vader. Kind of an interesting selection. I’m always fascinated by the characters that companies chose to make products for. In this case, I’m not sure why they chose Sy Snootles in particular, but it’s kind of cool since there are very few items devoted only to her.

This Jabba is a bit scary looking, and is probably one of the first items to adopt the “Jabba is all green” color scheme that we see so often nowadays.
