Bothans Immortalized in Plastic


Dark Lord of the Typos

Hasbro will finally be immortalizing Bothans in action figure form. As revealed in the latest issue of Previews, Hasbro will be releasing a Borsk Fey'lya action figure in its Comic Book 2-pack line early next year. Borsk will come packed with a new Wedge Antilles figure (in New Republic dress uniform).

Borsk Fey'lya is a Bothan politician featured prominently throughout Star Wars novels and comics. An occassional thorn in the side of Mon Mothma, and later Leia Organa Solo, Borsk is ultimately loyal to the Republic. He eventually becomes elected head of the New Republic. (I don't recall the exact title, over the years, the title has changed from Supreme Chancellor to Chief of State to President and probably a few others in between to best suit the needs of the people.

While Borsk's distinctive long white beard will make it difficult to customize this figure into various generic Bothans, he is a long awaited and welcome addition to everyone's collection. :cool:


Super cool! Maybe if I get one, I'll make a mini-size TBS T-shirt for him! :D
