Star Wars Greedo 1:1 Scale Bust

Star Wars: Jay Cochran - 2005.11.18


Greedo's memorable mug has been expertly captured by the Sideshow Collectibles design team, and sculptor Miles Teves. The bust is cast in fiberglass with a polystone exterior, capturing every wart and bump of the Rodian's skin texture. The bulbous and semi-luminous eyes are cast in a semi-transparent purple, enhancing the eerie life-like quality of the bust. The bust is complete with Greedo's jumpsuit and vest, each captured in real fabric. The bust stands tall on a Star Wars inspired display base, including the nameplate. The hand crafted, hand painted bust is sure to become the centerpiece of your Star Wars collection.

A snivelling lowlife in the seedy underworld of Tatooine, Greedo is looking for his ticket to the big league. When he stumbles across wanted smuggler Han Solo in Chalmun's roughneck cantina in Mos Eisley, the wannabe bounty hunter sees his chance to prove his value to his boss, Jabba the Hutt, and confronts the suave pilot. Apprehending a notorious rogue like Solo would certainly make Jabba take note, and could be the break Greedo needs to become what he aspires to be- a feared and respected hunter, the pinnacle of achievement in Rodian society.

Sadly, this is not to be Greedo's day. Biting off more than his twitching snout can chew, Greedo collects a blaster bolt in the stomach from Solo instead of a fat reward from Jabba. No fearsome galactic reputation, the scrawny thug's legacy is just another steaming mess for the long suffering bartender Wuher to clean up after closing time.

Epitomizing the phrase, "scum and villainy," small-time bounty-hunter and thug Greedo is arguably one of Star Wars most recognizable characters outside the principal cast. With his bulbous, shining eyes, bobbing antennae and twitching snout, the toad-skinned, green alien positively oozes a bad-guy fume. Greedo and Han Solo both come from the same seedy underworld of smuggling and crime, but Solo is everything Greedo isn't. The green alien lacks his adversary's style and wits, and ultimately it's his undoing. Since his brief appearance in Episode IV, Rodians have become synonymous with Star Wars and the jump-suited lackey, for all his ineptitude, is an undisputed fan favorite.
