Smuggler's Bounty mystery box: Red Snaggletooth. Well, I guess you could debate whether this is the second or the third exclusive as each crate includes either this figure or the rarer variant Blue Snaggletooth. Based on the character released in the vintage Kenner line in 1979 that had two very distinctive variants (short red Snaggletooth and tall blue Snaggletooth) Funko decided to pack these with a ratio of 1 blue Snaggletooth to every 5 cases, making this red version much more common. Ready for a closer look at this Snivvian patron of Chalmun's Cantina? Then join me after the break...
Height: 3 1/2 inches
Articulation: Bobbling head
Accessories: Display base
Non-Scalper Price: $25 as part of the March 2015 Smuggler's Bounty crate which included
one other POP!, a t-shirt, pencil w/ Chewbacca topper, Greedo patch, and
a Figrin D'an enamel pin.
*Interestingly, Snaggletooth is one of those characters from the vintage Star Wars toyline that differed tremendously between the toy and the film. The head is a dead-on replica of the vintage toy and should awaken some nostalgia if you owned that little guy. He's really nicely detailed and absolutely recognizable.
* Looking at Snaggletooth's outfit further reinforces that this POP! is not based upon the film appearance of the character but on the 1979 Kenner action figure. Besides the flight suit differing from the the film version's more tunic-like outfit and the very specific belt buckle, this version also has the furry, clawed feet and the DL-44 blaster pistol of the vintage toy.
* Snaggletooth comes with a stand like the rest of the Star Wars POP! figures.
Again, I love the look of this and also appreciate the fact that it is
removable in case you really want uniformity across your POP!
collection. My guess is that Funko includes these to help keep these
standing since they're bobble-heads, which probably gets them around
licensing agreements with Hasbro and other companies making "action
