Star Wars Characters: JABBA THE HUTT

The #Hot Wheels Characters continue to roll off the plant assembly line at Mattel’s Hot Wheels factory in Thailand. It seems like more and more collectors are collecting these castings by the day. Novelty lies in several of these as they are just wacky as they really embody […]
