Bio: "The Mythrol" was a Mythrol male who worked for Greef Karga until he stole from him and fled. By the time he had a bounty placed upon him during the New Republic Era, the Mythrol was on the ice world of Pagodas, where he was harassed by a group of trawlers within a bar. After a Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin entered the bar and incapacitated the trawlers, he captured the Mythrol, later freezing him in carbonite before delivering him, along with others, to Karga, who worked as an agent of the Bounty Hunters' Guild, in order to collect the rewards. Karga later let him pay off his debt at work. (Stolen from Wookieepedia. There is no bio.)

Unadorned, this gray silvery block looks great. It fits in the big Slave I storage area because it's smaller than the most recent Han Solo blocks, and it has a place on top for a claw to clamp on - which, admittedly, doesn't look as good. There's a hole in the back which I don't think presently serves a purpose, but it's on the back, so you don't see it. The toy has sculpted instrument panels on the sides too. The close-up looks a lot like Shrek.
While arguably not an essential part of a complete figure collection, I would want these because they represent distinctive (and mysterious) characters. Season one of The Mandalorian was a fun ride because, much like the old movies, there's no guide book explaining who some of these people or things are. They just are. This character never got a proper name, and it's kind of a shame that the block wasn't an accessory with The Vintage Collection figure. But hey, we got it! And we got a claw on which to hang it, or you can shove it in the freezing closet! It even stands on his own thanks to the flat base! It can be found sold individually on eBay from the people who broke up the set to sell at a mark-up, which makes it easier to display than some of the Han Solo-popsicles from over the years.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Hasbro Pulse.
