LEGO Star Wars Minifigures: Embo


Embo, the Kyuzo bounty hunter,  is exclusive to set 7930, Bounty Hunter Assault  Gunship.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories

Embo is made up of 5 parts: a hat, head, shoulder pads, torso, and leg assembly.

The hat is a printed 3x3 dish in dark gray.

The head is sand green with facial print. The head is not reversible, but does have print on the back.

Black epaulettes are around Embo's shoulders. An odd choice, as the reference pic below makes it seem more like a clone trooper pauldron.

The torso is black with sand green arms and black hands. The torso print resembles a bandoleer and light armor.

The legs and hips are reddish brown with  a red and yellow print starting on the lower right leg which extends diagonally toward the left hip. The hip also features a belt print.

The accessories for this figure are a dark gray bowcaster/crossbow.

Aside from the issue with the pauldron, the figure appears to resemble the Clone Wars character quite well based on the reference pic above.

Army Building Potential

The ABP for this figure is low to moderate. It's a cool figure, it's just that there's only one Embo...

Big Draw

The big draw will be the figure itself. Embo was a very cool character from the animated Clone Wars episode 'Bounty Hunters'. He was very athletic and used his hat as both a weapon and shield. Depending upon the full print on the dish, the hat could be a draw in and of itself. The head print looks like there's a lot potential there too.
