Jabba’s Palace PEZ Dispensers by Funko (Celebration Chicago Exclusive)

May 24, 2019

PEZ dispensers have been around since the 50s, and they’ve made quite a few of them for Star Wars characters, but up until now there have never been any Jabba’s Palace characters — at least as far as I know. So naturally I was excited when I heard that Funko would be making PEZ dispensers featuring three characters from Jabba’s Palace: Jabba, the Gamorrean Guard, and Salacious Crumb. Although these debuted at Celebration Chicago, they were also available on the Gamestop website (and I think in stores as well). So I was able to avoid paying scalper’s prices for these, although they were still a bit expensive at $8 apiece.

Since these are made by Funko, they naturally use Funko’s POP! Figure styling. At first glance I thought maybe they were just literally the same sculpts that they used for their POP! figures of these same characters, but if you compare the sculpt of the Gamorrean Guard, and Jabba the Hutt with Salacious Crumb figures, I think they are a bit different.

Naturally, they work just as every other PEZ dispenser — you bend the head back and a little capsule of candy comes out. It’s relatively unusual for Jabba to associated with a food item, so it’s nice to have another item to add to things like the vintage Pepperidge Farm Cookies, a vintage Dairy Time yogurt pot from the UK, a popsicle stick from Spain, and a box of corn flakes from Canada.

(By the way, this was included in this YouTube video I made about Celebration exclusives, if you want to see a bit more about it.)
