There are dozens of groovy creatures from the original Star Wars trilogy that still hold up well in the sci-fi movie genre 30 years later. Among the top of that heap is Bib Fortuna. Mammoth skull-born tentacles. Red eyes all aglow with malice. I can’t say there was anything like him before or since Return of the Jedi. Happily, Kenner took great care to make a faithful representation with their 1983 figure. The sculpt and paint are sweet. The removable vest and twisted staff are right on point. But let’s face it, it’s the imitation suede cloak, unique to this figure, that really puts vintage Bib Fortuna over the top. Yo, high five Bib!
