Mighty Beanz Jabba the Hutt

August 1, 2010

It was only a few days ago that I first heard these were going to be released, and I’ve already found them in a store. Mighty Beanz are a line of plastic capsules that are about 1″ long and are decorated with cartoony characters (some original, some from lines like Marvel and Star Wars). They each have a ball bearing inside that makes them move around in unexpected ways, and also lets them stand up on end as shown in the picture. The Star Wars line is supposed to have more than 75 different characters, but I don’t have a complete list. The characters from Jabba’s palace that I’ve heard of so far are Slave Leia, Max Rebo, and the Rancor.

If you’re looking for these right now, Target seems to be in the process of getting them. Some people have reported finding them, but none of the ones I checked in my area had them. They did have Darth Vader carrying cases and shelf tags for the Star Wars packs, so I imagine it’s just a matter of days before they get them. I finally found some at a Toys R Us. They’re $4.99 for a pack of 4 at Target but $5.99 at Toys R Us.

EDIT: Here’s some more of the Jabba-related beanz that I’ve found.

    I’m rather looking forward to these and think that they could be a pretty cool fad for a while. Much like the POGs.
