As a vintage collector, one of the hardest figures to obtain was the original Blue Snaggletooth. I have seen quite a few but the condition was a major factor and still is to this day. As I continue my search for that perfect sample, there is a consolation prize to be had. Gentle Giant will be producing a Jumbo Vintage style Blue Snaggletooth for SDCC and Star Wars Celebration! It’s limited to only 2000 pieces, but right now PGMs can pre-order it! I would not wait on this gang, as there is no guarantee he will make it to C6.
Blue Snaggletooth is the informal name of a rare Kenner action figure from 1978. Released as part of the Sears “Star Wars Cantina Adventure Set”, the Snaggletooth figure was intended to represent the character who would later be known as Zutton. However, the only reference used for the figure was a partial black and white photograph of the alien’s head. The body was unknown, so the sculptors and artists improvised, creating a tall alien with a tight blue spacesuit and silver boots. From 1979 onward, including later Sears releases of the cantina set, all versions of Snaggletooth were changed to a red color, with bare feet and hands and shorter legs.
