    Points of Interest:
  • Pax Bonkik is a repaint of 2006's VTSC VTSC Greedo. This time around, the vest from Han Solo (Endor Raid) has been added.
  • Who says Hasbro doesn't try to bring us the obscure background characters? There was a strong desire to make use of the VTSC Greedo body, but every other Rodian seen onscreen in the Classic Trilogy (Thuku, Neesh, Breedo, Beedo) both in Chalmun's Cantina, Docking Bay 94, or Jabba's Palace all pretty much looked the same, except for one who isn't wearing a vest. Even if the vest was changed, that's not much of a repaint.

    However, there are two Rodian Podracer Mechanics (RPM, anyone?) wandering around in the background of The Phantom Menace, and they've been named as "Pax & Trax Bonkik" as part of StarWars.com's Hyperspace "What's the story?" feature. This is a nice nod to a character with a fan-defined history, and while the Greedo body is not an exact match for the Bonkik brothers' outfits, it's unlikely we'd ever have gotten this character otherwise.
