Jabba the Hutt Cookie Jar by Star Jars
Star Jars had a line of ceramic Star Wars cookie jars in the late 1990s (this piece was released in 1998). The line consisted of Princess Leia, Obi-wan Kenobi, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hutt, C-3PO, and Wicket the Ewok. They were going to produce more, including a Boba Fett for which a prototype was produced, but the company went out of business before they were made. Apparently, the list price was originally $250, which is way too expensive in my opinion. You can get these for significantly less than that nowadays, although for some reason Jabba is definitely one of the less common ones. The edition size on this was 1000 pieces, but I see them up for sale so infrequently that I wonder if they actually produced that many.
These are quite large jars. I also have the C-3PO one and it looks to be about 3/4 scale. Jabba is of course a much smaller scale since they included his whole body, but at nearly 15″ tall he’s still considerably larger than most other Jabba collectibles. In fact, the only two that are bigger are the Attakus Jabba and the Illusive Concepts Jabba.
The paint work on this is pretty mediocre. Jabba is just a yellowish cream color and a green color without any other highlights or shading, aside from some green brushstrokes applied to the cream colored parts. Still, I kind of like the sculpt, and the size is impressive. And it’s a Jabba cookie jar!😀 I’ll always associate it with this picture:
