With origins ranging from a hired gun to a swoop racer to a guy with a hot dancer wife. The new continuity hasn't done much with him yet, but he's still a scarred bodybuilder with bits of Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper, Snowtrooper, and other costumes stapled to the flight suit of superstitious mummys. The backpack is loaded with detail and pegs in the figure's spine, which is awesome and allows for possible future customization to the variant Return of the Jedi configuration with other armor stapled to his back. The sculpting is really good, with dingy shoes and wrinkly "cloth" bits. The head wrapping looks good, which is no small feat - if you get it wrong, it looks even worse. The wrappings are molded separately from his fleshy face, so customizers might be able to pry it off and augment it with other accessories in the future. But why would you want to? This impressively scarred scoundrel has shiny eyes and slightly moist-looking lips. The printed facial detail continues to look amazing, especially given that it's on a figure that is not exactly extensively documented.
Dengar may not be a robot or a cool alien, but he's a fantastic action figure once again. If you see it, get it. If you think it looks good, you're right. Hasbro did a pretty amazing job replicating arguably the least interesting costume from that scene, so get one and then be angry that it's fantastic.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
