Jabba the Hutt Art Badge (Yujin Star Wars Art Badge Collection #49)

April 15, 2011

I was excited to see this crop up on eBay a while ago, since I had never seen it before. It’s part of a collection of “art badges” (aka buttons or pin badges) put out by the Japanese company Yujin in 2002, and I don’t think they were widely available outside of Japan. There were apparently 75 different button designs altogether, and 15 in this particular series (series 4). I think it’s likely that they were actually sold in vending machines that would randomly give you an item in a plastic “egg” rather than being sold individually, but I’m not sure. It’s quite small at around 1″ in diameter. According to the insert that came with it, there was also a button of Jabba’s tattoo symbol, which I’d like to try and track down.
