LEGO Star Wars Minifigures: Shahan Alama

LEGO Star Wars Shahan Alama FrontNow Showing
Shahan Alama is making a LEGO Star Wars universe debut in set 8128, Cad Bane's Speeder. This Weequay bounty hunter is ready to collect his prey as part of Cad Bane's entourage.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
Shahan is composed of four parts: hat, head, torso, and legs.

The had appears to be a red version of part x70, a bandanna-style head wrap.

LEGO Star Wars Shahan Alama BackThe head is gray featuring a new Weequay print. The only other Weequay minifigures are Hondo Ohnaka and Turk Falso.

The torso assembly is a mix of a white torso, dark blue left arm with gray hand, and gold right arm and hand. The print on the torso shows the armor plates on Shahan's shoulders and chest a white shirt and tan waist covering/belt. The gold arm is to represent Shahan's cybernetic arm.

The legs and hips are both dark blue with no print.

Shahan's blaster is a Star Wars standard, part 58247.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this figure is low. Shahan is a secondary character from a little used alien race. Unlike stormtroopers or battle droids, armies built of Shahan are unlikely.

Big Draw
This is the first time Shahan has appeared as a minifigure, giving collectors something new. Most of the parts, however, have been available or just feature new prints.
