Star Wars Operation (R2D2/C-3PO) by Hasbro
This is a Star Warsy version of the classic electronic Operation game. Instead of operating on what I can only assume is a late-stage alcoholic, you’re trying to remove various foreign objects from R2-D2 (and a couple from C-3PO), but the basic concept is the same.
It’s called a “silly skill game” on the box, and I guess that’s a pretty accurate description. I suppose you do need a steady hand to be able to remove the items in the cavities with the tweezers without touching the sides, but I found it to be surprisingly easy. My son had a slightly harder time, but we were both able to do it pretty easily, which made it a lot less tense than I had remembered the game being as a kid. If you do touch the side, a sound clip from R2 or C-3PO is played. The “screaming” R2 seemed very appropriate, but some of the other clips (like C-3PO saying that he would gladly donate any of his circuits or gears) seemed a little out of place.
I know what you’re thinking. What does this have to do with Jabba? The pieces you’re removing have some Star Wars connection, like a “Rusty Restraining Bolt,” a “Bad Motivator,” or an “Overweight Glob of Grease.” Of course that phrase was originally said by C-3PO of R2 in A New Hope, but they’ve chosen to represent it as everyone’s favorite Hutt.
And yeah, I did kind of buy the game just to get this piece (which now lives on one of my collection shelves), but I got it cheaply second hand, and my son and I also had some fun with it.
