  • Comments: The skiff guards were aboard Jabba the Hutt's sailbarge when the Hutt and his entourage went to the Pit of Carkoon for a macabre party in which the chief entertainment was to be the execution of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. During the ensuing rescue, some of the skiff guards were unlucky enough to go tumbling into the maw of the ravenous Sarlacc in place of the Rebel heroes.


    Klaatu: Based on the figure from POTF2's Jabba's Skiff Guards Cinema Scene.
    One of the skiff guards in the Hutt's unsavory entourage.


    Barada: Based on the figure from POTF2's Jabba's Skiff Guards Cinema Scene. An unsophisticated brute and captain of the Hutt's unkempt fleet.


    Nikto: Based on the figure from POTF2's Jabba's Skiff Guards Cinema Scene.
    Considered the most dangerous "client species" in Jabba the Hutt's empire.


    Han Solo: Made from the POTF2's Han Solo (Cantina) and POTJ's Han Solo (Bespin Capture), with a new right leg and torso.
    He escapes being fed to the Sarlacc when his friends come to his resuce.


    Sail Barge Cannon: Based on the Deluxe Princess Leia from the Power of the Jedi line.
    Insert projectile into cannon. Press button to fire projectile.

    Points of Interest:
  • The names of these aliens are a tribute to the classic science fiction film, The Day the Earth Stood Still.
  • The names of the Skiff Guards on the package back are all mixed up...."Barada" is really Nikto (actually, Vizam), "Nikto" is really Klaatu, and "Klaatu" is really Barada.
  • Han Solo is wearing the wrong shirt.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
