Djas Purh, the Friendly Alien

The Star Wars Cantina scene is one of my all time favorite movie scenes. The seventies moderate budget upcycled fright mask moment is one of pure and utter joy and I love it when I find an action figure of one of the scum and villainy that frequented that wretched hive.

During Kenner's original Star Wars run, only a few characters were made of the denizens of that den of ill repute: Hammerhead, Walrus Man, Greedo (and, technically, Han and Chewie) but in modern times many more have been created by Hasbro whether you remember seeing them during their 0.4 seconds of screen time or not.

"Al Jolson? Never heard of him."
Djas Puhr is one of those 'blink and you'll miss him' aliens. He was seated next to that big multi-eyed alien with the penis for a mouth (Muftak) so you may not have ever even noticed him. You tend to get overlooked when your friend has genitals on his face. But that probably goes without saying. This action figure was originally released in 2002 and came with dual pistols and laser blast effects for the pistols. Mine only came with one of his pistols, but that's better than none and for the less-than-a-dollar I spent on him I can't complain.

  1. We own this one, cool character even though we see him like for a second.
