Here’s a hint. This is also a part of it.

Picture 18Yes, you’re right, it’s the head and mouth of one of those alien musicians in the Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. His name is Figrin D’an, because every last character in the Star Wars universe has a name and backstory. According to Wookieepedia, he’s the Bith leader of the band Modal Nodes. A Jizz (yes, Jizz) musician, Figrin plays a Kloo horn. Fascinating.

By the way, if you don’t remember what he looks like, here he is:

Why are we magnifying his head and mouth after all these years? Because Sideshow Collectibles is producing a life-size bust of this character, for an affordable price of $499.99. And something this size highlights his best assets like no other product ever made.
