Vintage Sigma Ceramic Klaatu Mug

March 27, 2010

This is one of several “figural mugs” that Sigma put out around the release of Return of the Jedi. You sort of have to wonder why anyone would make a Klaatu mug, since he’s definitely one of the more forgettable inhabitants of Jabba’s palace. My theory has always been that they had to make licensing decisions ahead of time (maybe just based on concept art instead of the film itself), and that it wasn’t clear exactly which characters would end up being popular. But that’s just a guess on my part.

I got this on ebay a while back paired with another item that was what I actually wanted, and in fact I had forgotten that I even had it until I discovered it in the kitchen recently. 😀 Poor Klaatu never gets any respect. I need to get the others in the line. They made a Bib Fortuna and a Gamorrean Guard as I recall.
