Continuing Kenner Star Wars cantina alien tributes, Onell Design shrinks its plans with Pheytooth. Referencing Kenner's off-model but official Snaggletooth figure, Pheytooth takes the Pheyden mold and knocks out the shins. It works nicely - and the shins are here if you need them.
The standard 2 1/4-inch Pheyden loses half of an inch to be shorter than his cohorts. Aside from those missing leg pieces, it's the same basic Pheyden. The memorable "M" buckle on the Kenner toy and on the movie costume is now a white pouch, with other details carrying over like the shoeless alien's clawed feed. The namesake tooth is also present, protruding from a painted mouth under a painted nose. These are features we rarely see on Pheydens.
The color matching is impeccable as usual, except for the change in the belt buckle. The red shoulder rings are here, the short "hair" remains present as do the distinctive eye coloring, and the unpainted flap of Kenner's figure is represented here with a couple of deco lines.
Much like Greeden, Pheytooth manages to riff on Kenner's memorable design with the elements you remember. Just not the blaster... which makes it a lot like how I remember him, mostly at garage sales and flea markets. It's a classic creature, and it'll go nicely on my shelf with the other cool tributes from this round - including Ninja Turtles, Snake Eyes, and Wolverine. I suspect we'll see the quartet completed soon, and I can't wait to see Hammerhead colors slapped on Pheyden's body. If there's ever been a more perfect fit, I've not considered it.
