Weequay and Nikto. Two criminally underrated action figures out of the very large array of Kenner toys from 1983’s “Return of the Jedi”. Told you these cats would be back!
Yes, yes… I know Weequay and Nikto aren’t bounty hunters. It felt like a cool title just the same. And by the way, hauling out the vintage Nikto and Weequay figures for this reminded me of just how underrated those two ROTJ guys really are. You’ll be seeing more of them in the very near future.
Or, alternately titled “Bad Cop, Worse Cop”.
Despite being straight-up ugly to the core, these two Jabba the Hutt cronies rate all high marks in my book. Great details. Sophisticated color palates. And they both tote that groovy vibro axe thingy (which, although not proven, is likely the coolest weapon in the vintage line). Also Weequay has the rare distinction among the vintage figures of possessing the ability to hold his weapon with both hands, not just one. Yeah, pretty rad.
