News: Vintage Jabba the Hutt Play-Doh Set on Pawn Stars

November 6, 2011

I was watching the latest episode of Pawn Stars a minute ago (the Halloween episode), and I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw that someone had brought in a vintage Jabba the Hutt Play-Doh Playset. The customer wanted $100 for it, which seems high for this piece, even in unopened condition. It’s true that they’re not all that common, but items like the Play-Doh playsets aren’t nearly as popular with collectors as the Kenner toys, even though I love them personally.

Rick, the owner of the pawnshop, gave the guy a bit of a hard time for knowing the name of Jabba’s sidekick Salacious Crumb, so I’d hate to hear what his reaction to my collection might be. 😉 He ended up paying $50 for the set, which is pretty generous considering that he will then need to sell it at a profit. But in any case, I was excited to see one of my favorite Jabba collectibles getting a little love on a popular show like this. If you want to see the episode in question it can be streamed at the moment on history.com, although I believe they only make full episodes available for a limited time.

As a side note, I recently got a large spike in traffic coming to this site from Google searches on “Jabba the Hutt Play-Doh” and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. I’m betting that this episode was the reason.
