Star Wars Vintage 1979 A New Hope 3.75 Inch Action Figure Snaggletooth Very Good
Loose Figure with No Other Accessories Included Shipped in PROTECH Case (Stock Photo Shown)
A New Hope - Snaggletooth. Though pictured on the back of the Star Wars 20 and 21 back cards with a Stormtrooper blaster, the figure was packed with a Han Solo Blaster. The red version of this figure first appeared on the star Wars 20 back card. The blue version was never available on a blister card, but it was originally included in the Cantina Adventure Set. Common vintage Star Wars misconception regarding the famous Snaggletooth blue and red variations: Everyone knows that the blue one came from the Cantina Adventure set sold exclusively through Sears and never shipped as a single carded version, but that is only part of the whole truth. The red version was also packed in as a replacement for the blue in the set as well as being released on the card. Surprisingly ?as any time on eBay will prove- the blue version isn?t half as rare as most people think, though still by no means is as overly abundant as it?s shorter counterpart. Both versions are featured below. Though all vintage figures have minor variations, Snaggletooth has one of the most popular major variations in the vintage line. The Snaggletooth originally packed into the Cantina Adventure Set playset was a completely unique sculpt. Though aesthetically similar in many ways, this version of the figure is 3 3/4? (apposed to the later version which is 2 3/4?), sported silver space boots and a blue jump suit. Carrying the same weapon as the small version, the blue Snaggletooth was available only in a sealed Kenner baggie and never on any blistered card back. There has been much talk of this figure being packaged on the Meccano square cards in France, but to date not a single example has ever surfaced. The only version of the Snaggletooth figure to appear on the cards is the red one pictured.
