LEGO Star Wars Minifigures: Saesee Tiin


Saesee Tiin is exclusive to the LEGO Star Wars set 7931, T6 Jedi Shuttle. This will be the first time this Iktotchi jedi has been available in the LEGO universe.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories

Saesee is made up of 5 parts - a head peice resembling Iktotchi horns, head, torso, and leg assembly.

A head piece sits atop the head to resemble the horns of the Iktotchi race. This is a unique piece and new to the LEGO Universe. It is not known if the horns can be removed from the rest of the head piece, but it doesn't appear so.

The head is flesh-tone and features a new print. Based on the design of the head piece, it is unlikely that this is a dual-sided head.

The torso is brown with white arms and black hands. The torso print resembles a Jedi tunic and a belt.

The legs are brown with brown hips and no visible print.

The accessories for this figure are a lightsaber with a trans-green blade.

As with some of the other 2011 Star Wars minifigures the images in this advert do differ from the pictures seen in the 2011 LEGO catalog. In the catalog the arms were brown with flesh hands, and the minifigure sported a cape. The torso and leg assembly also appeared to be reddish brown. We won't know for certain until we receive pictures of the final sets, but we will update any discrepancies.

Saesee Tiin is an Iktotchi Jedi Master and flying ace. With the characteristic horns as the main design feature, the minifig version resembles the orginal quite well as seen in this reference photo.

Army Building Potential

The ABP for this figure is moderate. The horned head piece may be sought after in multiples, even it the figure is not. Iktotchi are a race not previously available, so one could populate sci-fi cityscapes with a few parts changes.

Big Draw

The big draw here is the horned headpiece. Ideal for custom applications and very unique many will seek this minifig out for this feature.Of course, LEGO Star Wars collectors will want to add this new addition to their growing collections.

  3. The legs are a dark brown and is the same piece as for Shaak Ti, Aayla Secura, and Plo Koon. Horns cannot be removed. Should've included a cape, but the set only includes one for Shaak.
