Upcoming: Return of the Jedi Figurines from Disney (with Jabba’s Palace Characters)

Disney-VIP-Event-Star-Wars-Figurines-006

Rebelscum just posted pictures of this set from the recent Disney VIP Event. They have sets of static figurines for most of their movies available in Disney Stores, so I guess it was just a matter of time until they did the same for Star Wars. This is the Return of the Jedi set, and I’m gratified to see that it’s all Jabba-related. 🙂 I’ll have to say, that these look exceptionally good — especially considering the price of $12.95 per set of six. I doubt the actual figures will be painted quite this nicely, though.

The Jabba is interesting, as it seems fairly clear that it’s a reworked version of either the Jabba Glob or Ultra Jabba figures from Hasbro. The body has been changed to make it smaller, but the head and arms look VERY similar to these previous figures. The only thing is that I don’t know what scale these actually are. I had assumed they would be smaller, but the similarities in the Jabba sculpt make me wonder if they aren’t the same size as the Hasbro figures (in which case they seem like even more of a bargain).

In any case, we’ll find out on May the 4th, which is when they are supposed to become available. The Empire Strikes Back set will also have Han in Carbonite and Boba Fett, so if you’re looking to get a little Jabba’s Palace display, that might also be a good pick-up.
