  • Add to - Star Wars action figures have entertained for over 30 years. There have been many variations of Luke, Han, Leia and the rest of the Rebel Alliance, but the rarest variation of a Star Wars action figure is the so-called Blue Snaggletooth. You may recall Snaggletooth as being one of the bounty hunters affiliated with Jabba the Hutt in the cantina in Moss Eisley from A New Hope. He was a shorter-than-human weasel-faced character, dressed in a reddish-colored uniform, and wearing no footware. When the first round of Star Wars action figures were put together, the toy designers made Snaggletooth the same height as the rest of the Star Wars action figures, dressed in blue, with shiny silver boots. George Lucas had this "Blue Snaggletooth" pulled from the toy line and demanded the character be properly represented in plastic. The 1978 Blue Snaggletooth Star Wars action figure is now among the rarest of toys from the Star Wars universe.

You know what really gets my goat? The fact that these things a re priced so high because they're "rare". They are about as rare as glass. You can go on ebay on any given day and find 50-100 of these figures. Same goes for Yak-face. Ebay is so saturated with both of these supposedly rare figures it's not even funny. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have them for my collection, but there's no way in hell I'm paying hundred's of dollars for something when there are so many out there.
