Dengar! Back in 1980, this was a very exciting figure for me. Having been blissfully ignorant of the mail-away Boba Fett offer here in the UK (mainly due to me not reading comics at the time and hence never seeing the adverts), Dengar represented my first ever experience of sending away for an unreleased figure. Talk about exciting! I gleefully destroyed 3 cardbacks to remove the name plates and sent them away to Palitoy, along with my 30 pence for postage and packing, and then waited... and waited...

I was one of those children who received a postcard from Palitoy (as shown here http://i712.photobucket.com/albums/ww13 ... 5250731098 - not my photo) explaining that there would be a delay in the delivery of my figure, which only made the anticipation all the greater! And of course, because this was my first ever mail-away, in my 8-year old ignorance, I expected the figure to be sent on a cardback, just like all the other figures I had seen and bought. And so it was that when, several weeks later, a small white cardboard packet arrived in the post with my name and address on it, I genuinely didn't know what it was. I opened the packet with curiosity more than excitement, and then I saw what was inside! :D

Wonderful stuff! Yes, the figure is a little chunky. Yes, he can have problems holding his rifle. And yes, that rifle is completely wrong (Kenner having cheaped out and donated the equally incorrect Snowtrooper's rifle to our bandaged bounty hunter), but it was still a thing of wonder to the child version of me!

Fast-forward a decade or four and here's the selection I have today. A range of armour shades and skin tones are available across at least 2 similar, but different sculpts, with the darkest armour coming courtesy of our Spanish friends at PBP:

Thanks for sharing that huge army of dengar variants and that was a cool story about the dengar that you got with mail :D

I love the pbp dengar, I think he is the most perfect variant of all the dengar variants that I have seen.

Yes wrong blaster for dengar but it look a lot like the one he used. I would more say the snowtrooper rifle kenner sold it with was very wrong. As I remember it we more saw the normal stormie blaster used with the snowtrooper. But I have read elite snowtroopers used the rifle, maybe kenner sold the elite snowtrooper :lol:

That's a beautiful MOC! And well done for having the wit to pick it up back in the 90's. I wish I'd bought a lot more MOCs back then!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Lars.

That's interesting if there is or was intended to be another Snowtrooper that did come with a rifle more like the one Kenner gave us. I certainly don't remember seeing any evidence of it anywhere in the film, so perhaps it never made it passed the design stage, or maybe ended up on the cutting room floor? :?
