Jabba, you've lost weight!
Ha ha ha, this just makes me laugh. Yesterday I caught word on the interwebs that Giant AT-ATs were being purchased at WalMart for 49 Bucks. I couldn't resist, I had to check the Wally World by work so I took a little 15 minute break to scope out the nearby big blue for some AT-AT goodness... lets face it I know I'm getting one and if I can save a few bucks , why not. Well zippo, no AT-ATs to be found, but plenty of other Star Wars stuff including the extremely rare Jabba's Palace set pictured above with weight watchers Jabba.
The funny thing was I saw this tucked behind a few others of the same set and from the top I was thinking "which long neck alien is that?", ha ha it's Jabba!
Okay this sort of stuff has really ticked me off in the past and this is actually the second time I have seen a swapped figure at this WalMart, but now it's like this guy or gal is not even trying. What a wonderful world, the lesson here is I will not be buying any boxed toys at this location and really inspecting the bubbled and window boxed stuff carefully.
