Compare this Dengar figure
This Bounty Hunter Dengar action figure was released individually carded during The Power Of The Force 2 Collection in 1997. The figure is based on Dengar's backpack-less appearance in Return Of The Jedi - inside of Jabba's palace.
Dengar has the typical mid-90ties six swivel joints in the neck - both arms and legs - and the waist. There are no joints in the elbows - wrists - knees or ankles. Kenner included two weapons with the figure - a basic blaster and a blaster rifle. Both weapons fit well into the over-sized hands - but they are both just generic weapons - and don't resemble any likeness to what Dengar carried in the movie. Dengar was given a more action oriented pose - with the right leg sculpted in a more forward position. The stance works quite well - and balances the figure out nicely. There was no backpack included with the Bounty Hunter - as seen in The Empire Strikes Back.
The paint application on Dengar feels pretty outdated - but for its time back then it was well done with various shades of dirt on the outfit. The sculpt - just like the paint application - is also outdated. Especially the hands feel out of place due to their size. All in all - this Bounty Hunter Dengar figure is quite outdated compared with modern figures - but it is the only representation of the character based on Return Of The Jedi - where Dengar didn't wear his backpack - and the figure still fits well into a Jabba Diorama.
Kenner did not provide a background story or packaging text for Dengar.
