"JABBA's MERCENARY PILOT" created by Darth Daddy

This unidentified Human male was employed by Jabba the Hutt. He was a guard on the second skiff during the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon in 4 ABY, where he was kicked by Luke Skywalker into the Sarlacc and fell to his death. This guard wore a tan outfit, black helmet and carried a DL-18 Blaster Pistol.

The action figure was produced with the head and body of the Hoth 3-pack AT-ST Driver and the helmet and harness of a G.I. Joe Retaliation Cobra Trooper action figure.  A few modifications were made to the harness and the helmet to improve screen accuracy.

"VUL TAZAENE" created by Darth Daddy

This action figure was a project that was inspired by Star Wars action figure customizer, Jabbapalacespy over in the Rebelscum customizing forum. I copied his recipe with just a small modification using the Vintage Weequay Skiff Master body, the forearms of a Comic Pack Luke Skywalker and the head of Sephjet Josall from the Target Geonosis 2-packJabbapalacespy used the forearms of a Comic Pack Talon Karrde.  I lengthened the sleeves with some Green Stuff and painted the sculpt black and added a glossy coat of paint to the tunic. It was nice to add another Jabba character to our display!

Vul Tazaene was a male Kiffar security officer from the planet Kiffex. By 4 ABY, he was looking for a pair of identical twin con artists called the Tonnika sisters. He had also fallen in love with one of them, though he was not sure if it was Brea or Senni Tonnika. That year, Tazaene was present in the crime lord Jabba the Hutt's palace on the planet Tatooine when Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker arrived in an attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo. Tazaene also accompanied the Hutt to his luxury sail barge, the Khetanna, when Skywalker and Solo were taken to be executed at the Great Pit of Carkoon. The captives fought back, however, and the sail barge was ultimately destroyed.
