Jabba disassembly?

I’ve just noticed my Jabba’s head is on backwards! Does anyone know how to remove it so I can put it on the right way?

I think the only way is to warm his softer plastic head up in warm water and pull it off (lol) polloi has done a video on it before on his channel.

There is a tab that could break one side if it's brittle.

Good luck

Never seen that before, good luck with that. You could probably sell that for £500 on Facebook, Factory error!

Warm water method to pop it might would but honestly and in my opinion id leave it alone. As said, you could crack it. Mine oddly enough is exactly the same.

Interesting, so possibly a legit factory error then if you don't think yours has been tampered with? I've only had this a few years so not sure of its history.

Hot water method seems to work

I'm not sure I would have noticed from the photo if it wasn't pointed out :lol:

Possibly just me but I kinda like it .. I think I'd be tempted to leave it as one of those quirks !

I don't think its been tampered with personally honest, well not in the 25 years I have had it. Anythings possible though, probably an easy error to make going by the speed at those girls would put these things together. I don't think it even looks out of place if im to be honest. :lol:

I am sure I have seen and discussed this before here on the forum, but I can't find the old post :? As I remember people agree that it must be a
production error.

Let us know how it goes with removeing the head :wink:

It doesn't look that easy to get off, it feels quite brittle and not soft as others have said, so if there's even a chance that it was like that from the factory, I think I'll leave it! He'll just have to eat the frogs out of the bowl with his tail :lol:

When I was a kid, I could force my Jabba's head round with a bit of force that I knew it was not meant to do that. I don't mean to say that he is that supple in 2021 though.
