If you are a Build-A-Bear fan and a Star Wars fan, I have good news for you. Build-A-Bear now has a new Bantha plush available online!
This one does not have a sound chip, but from the write-up it seems he’s larger than other plushies so that could be why he’s $53.
“Saddle up and adventure throughout the galaxy with your own Bantha™ plush! This large, furry mammal from Tatooine™ has shaggy brown fur with big plush horns. It’s ready for any desert journey thanks to the brown plush saddle included. Add this adorable Bantha™ plush to your herd and complete your STAR WARS™ collection today!
Please note: due to Bantha’s extra-snuggly size, this furry friend cannot fit inside our standard-sized gift box or Cub Condo.”
The size listed is 12 inches, so I’m assuming he’s longer since the Boba Fett bear stands at 17″ for only $36.
The Loth Cat is 11″ tall and has sounds and it is only $38 so I’m assuming the Bantha must be a lot larger to warrant that price with no sounds.
It is weird that his face is like a bear face, because that isn’t how bantha’s look, but it makes sense given the store.
