Jabba the Hutt Pin by Activa Consumer Products

April 8, 2010

The generically named Activa Consumer Products put out a series of 20 Star Wars pins in Canada in 2005 to coincide with the release of Revenge of the Sith. The interesting thing about this is that they apparently gave away the first pin for free in major newspapers and then sold the rest for $2.69 (Canadian) at stores. Here is an article at TheForce.Net with a little more information. This particular pin has the packaging in French, but I assume they also made English versions. I know the same pins with different packaging were also released in the UK.

The pin itself is made of metal, but the picture is basically just a puffy sticker that they slapped on the top. Mine is starting to peal off. Plus, the pin itself actually broke in half in the mail on its way to me from the seller. They were nice enough to send me a replacement, but I’ve misplaced it, so the picture here is of the broken version that I’ve pieced back together. Overall, I’m not all that impressed with the quality.
