"Yoxgit" created by Darth Daddy

Yoxgit was an male Ugnaught whose homeworld was the gas giant Bespin. A security systems technician with a mining company A'roFilter on Cloud City—a mining colony that floated in the atmosphere of Bespin—he was discontent with the amount of money he made at his job. Eventually, Yoxgit began secretly supplying Tibanna gas to Hermi Odle, a Baragwin weapons designer working for a Hutt crime lord named Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Due to his criminal activities, Yoxgit was able to afford fashionable clothing, a chrome-plated cloud car, and an upper city apartment. By the time of the Galactic Empire's takeover of Cloud City in 3 ABY, Yoxgit led a gang of Ugnaughts and was a contact of the Rebel Alliance. During the Imperial occupation, Yoxgit aided in freezing the Human smuggler and Alliance captain Han Solo in carbonite under the orders of the Sith Lord Darth Vader, who commanded the occupying Imperial forces. Shortly thereafter, Yoxgit was forced to reveal the details surrounding the capture of Captain Solo after he and his gang unsuccessfully attempted to kill a group of Rebels who came to him for information on the Imperial occupation. 

Following these events, he realized that he would no longer be able to enjoy his new lifestyle, and he chose to leave Bespin for the planet Tatooine, Jabba's seat of power. Once on Tatooine, Odle assigned him to maintain Jabba's security systems and observe the movements of the Baragwin's Skrilling nemesis, Pote Snitkin, as well as Snitkin's Yuzzum minion, Wam Lufba. Due to his proficiency with his work, the Ugnaught found his way into Jabba's favor, and was invited to witness the execution of three prisoners at the Great Pit of Carkoon from the sail barge Khetanna. Unfortunately for Jabba and Yoxgit, the prisoners escaped and turned the tables on the crime lord's guards, while Jabba was slain by Leia Organa, a friend of the prisoners. In the hopes of keeping his life of ease, Yoxgit prepared to kill Organa to curry favor with Jabba's successor, but he was killed when one of the prisoners, Jedi Luke Skywalker, destroyed the Khetanna with the vehicle's deck cannon

To make this figure a unique headsculpt was constructed and then placed onto an older super-articulated Ugnaught body we had in fodder.  The apron on the Ugnaught figure was removed and the figure was repainted.
