Star Wars Galactic Heroes: Jabba's Skiff

Poor Boba Fett gets tangled up

Over the years, many manufacturers have given their take of the Star Wars universe in the form of toys or collectables. Most have gone with the realistic look such as the Hasbro line of Star Wars action figures but this time Star Wars comes to us non-proportional and super cute in Hasbro's (formerly released by Playskool) line of Galactic Heroes.

If Jabba's Skiff looks familiar to you then you have a good memory. Hasbro released a similar set called Jabba's Sail Barge in last year's assortment that included a paper barge. This time they book out Jabba but included a plastic barge!

Luke Skywalker, Skiff Guard, and Han Solo far in the background:

Like all Galactic Heroes characters, articulation is limited to arms or legs rotating up or down. Hands are pre-sculpted to hold a weapon or have a closed fist.

It's better that they included a plastic barge this time around but I don't think a lot of kids will be excited to play with a brown sail barge.  So unless you're a completionist I recommend skipping over this set and suggest buying one of the better vehicle sets instead.
