So, I just had a birthday earlier in the month and Dad surprised me with an out of this world present, Clone Wars custom action figures made by Peak-OB1 Custom Creations from "The Box" episode. We featured a few of the figures on the blog already, but today's feature is all about Onca and Bulduga.
Normally we get our action figures from Peak-OB1 Custom Creations directly, but these particular figures were commissioned by another collector many years ago. That collector recently made the decision to sell off their Star Wars collection and contacted us to see if we'd be interested in purchasing what he had available. We jumped at the chance to buy these knowing they can't be found anywhere else. We admired them from afar ever since their creation, always wishing they were part of our collection. The paintwork and craftsmanship on these figures are just incredible, and worthy of our previous praise. While we still need a few more of the figures to complete the set, Balduga and Onca might just be my favorites of the bunch.
"Most beings in the galaxy assume that Ithorians are peaceful keepers of gardens and contemplative philosophy. The ones who have stared down the barrels of the bounty hunting brothers Bulduga and Onca beg to differ -- if not busy begging for their lives. While Onca favored heavier rifles, Bulduga preferred the fast-draw blaster. Some who noticed Bulduga's low slung holster, red-lensed goggles and wide-brimmed hat wondered if perhaps Bulduga was a copy-cat, looking to imitate another well-known gunslinger -- but not within earshot of the deadly Ithorian." - Star Wars Databank
"Together with his brother Bulduga, Onca was part of a legendary bounty hunting team. While Bulduga fancied himself a fast-drawing gunslinger, Onca was slower, unable to overcome the bulk of his Ithorian build to snap off shots as quickly as his brother could. Instead, Onca favored firepower over flash or finesse. He often carried more than one blaster rifle at a time, including a sawed-off one." - Star Wars Databank
