This animated-style Nikto Guard Puko Naga was released individually carded as a Toys'R'Us exclusive in September 2010 during The Clone Wars collection. The figure is based on a character seen in The Clone Wars movie while Anakin Skywalker talks to Jabba The Hutt.
Puko Naga has 10 movable parts - including a ball-jointed neck - ball-jointed shoulders - ball-jointed elbows - swivel wrists - a swivel waist and legs. The knees and ankles are not articulated. Because of the wide - and more action oriented pose - the figure stands a little shaky and will very likely require the included stand to keep its balance. There were 4 accessories included with Puko Naga - a blaster rifle - a hand blaster - removable head gear and a holster - which hangs around the figure's neck down on its right side. The blaster fits only very loosely into the right hand - but with patience it can be placed in a way so that the figure's index finger sits on the trigger. Unfortunately - the rifle doesn't fit in either of Puko Naga's hands. The head gear is a decent fit though - and can easily be put on or taken off the figure's head. The satchel fits well and houses the blaster OK.
The paint job on the animated-style Puko Naga is very simple with only black - silver and gray colors on the entire outfit. However - the head and the upper chest plate are painted nicely. The figure's sculpt unfortunately is only average - with the hands being too big - the leg stance being too wide without articulated knees and ankles to adjust it. In addition to that - both weapons and the head gear are made out of extremely soft plastic and bend very easily. All in all - this figure makes a nice background figure for an animated - Clone-Wars-inspired Jabba The Hutt display (and it's a never-before-done figure) - but we know that Hasbro can do much better than this!
Puko Naga is a Nikto guard in Jabba The Hutt's palace. With his fellow guards - he protects the crime lord from his many victims and disgruntled associates. Thousands of years ago - the Nikto swore their allegiance to the Hutts - and they still carry out this pledge by working as guards - warriors and henchmen for the Hutts.
