•Weequay (Skiff Guard)•
Welcome back to Action Figure Kingdom’s Fantasy Figure! What we do here is build an argument for getting a character built in 6” scale for The Black Series! The three categories that we use are relevance, aesthetic appeal, and execution (what we’d like to see accessory/packing/ideas wise). So we begin.
- Relevance• Though, arguably never a main character in their own right, the Weequays are one of the main sentient species knitted into the fabric of most canon Star Wars stories. Whether it’s in the background like in every single prequel film, on the Clone Wars as a gang leading pirate like Hondo Ohnaka, or as hired guardsmen for Jabba the Hutt’s skiff barge (or a musician like Ak-Rev). If a Guavian Enforcer can score a 6” figure (no beef with that, I love them)then a representative of the Weequay species, whether in the form of a pirate like Hondo or a classic Skiff guard, I think we’d all embrace that.
- Aesthetic• Here’s the great part! The Weequay are such a diverse people! I don’t even have a preference. Go with a dirtied up Weequay Skiff Guard, classic beige pants, blue shirt and brown armor with a realistic vibro-ax and some sweet braids. A face all mummified and a deep brown leather from the Tatooine sun. Go with the super colorful Ak-Rev with a knit kilt and tassels. Give us a 6” Hondo! (We’re still so thirsty for Clone Wars era figure *cough* Cad Bane *cough*)
- Execution• If Skiff Guard, dirty & can we attempt hair plugs for the dreads? If Ak-Rev, a soft goods kilt. If Hondo, removable helmet/attached goggles and let’s try a sword holster for this quasi-buccaneer!! Overcoat would probably have to be soft plastic, but damn, the possibilities! Target/GameStop Exclusive. Regular pricing, unless Hondo then +$2 sale price.
