Lego Embo - Star Wars Bounty Hunter
Who Is Embo?
Embo was a male bounty hunter from Kyuzo who was active throughout the Clone Wars. He was part of Sugi’s band of bounty hunters and features heavily in The Clone Wars animated series episode "Bounty Hunters".
Embo wore a large circular hat which he used as both a shield, when charging enemies, and a weapon, by throwing it like a frisbee.
Wookiepedia tells us that Embo was also involved in the court of Jabba the Hutt during the time of the Clone Wars and gives a full description of his exploits in the "Bounty Hunters" episode; a video clip of this can be seen here.
Embo has quickly become a very popular character and featured briefly in a second Clone Wars episode, "Sphere of Influence". Given his popularity he is likely to feature again.
Lego Embo Mini Figures
The Lego Embo mini figure was released by Lego in late 2010/early 2011 as part of the Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship set and currently this is the only Lego set that this mini figure is included found in.
Lego have really been to work on this Embo mini figure and it is one of the most detailed Star wars Legos that they have ever produced. The printed head, with its piercing yellow eyes, really captures the character's features and printing on the back of the head adds even more detail.
Both Embo's torso and legs have detailed printing on them which shows details such as armour, a medal and bandolier of ammunition as well as a belt, and even his hat is printed to match that which is seen in The Clone Wars animated series. Embo is further dressed in black epaulettes to increase his armoured appearance - so much detail in this mini figure.
The Embo Lego mini figure comes armed with a dark grey bowcaster; this will become a highly sought-after Star Wars Lego mini figure.
