Gas Miners United. (Vintage Ugnaughts)

I have a few problems with the Empire Strikes Back. But the cantankerous band of get-the-job-done Ugnaughts isn’t one of them. And the vintage Ugnaught action figure has been a favorite since I was a kid, particularly because I somehow associated the figure’s hairstyle with George Washington’s hairstyle as seen on a one dollar bill. Apparently George Washington’s hair was so alluring to me that the only way my dad could trick me into letting him cut my hair was if he said “OK kid, you want the George Washington?”. Of course I’d agree but invariably I would end up looking more like Jay Baruchel on a bad day.
