Here comes another of those odd Star Wars creatures that you might not have heard of. M'Ilyoom Onith was a female H'nemthe and she popped up for about two seconds in the Cantina scene in the 1977 film 'A New Hope.' You might be wondering why she was turned into an action figure. At the turn of the eighties, toy giant Kenner produced over one hundred figures, but she was not one of them.
The re-release of the newer films resulted in interest in the expanded Star Wars universe and fans were thirsty for more. Hasbro begun probing the films, seeing who they could make into a toy to keep fans happy. The Cantina was an obvious place to start; rich with a wealth of monsters and aliens and scummy pilots.
M'Ilyoom Onith is a peaceful creature with a most intriguing head. She looks like she is part elephant with a trunk like snout and textured skin. The toy portrays her as greyish, though in the film she looks more brown to me. The clothes she wears are basic and dowdy. A grey tunic covers most of her frame and looks like it has been through the wars. Offset with a sturdy brown belt, it looks almost slave-like.
Satisfying boots come up to her knees, offering stability and an assured footing. Her paws are crafted neatly with attention to detail on the fingers, which can grip her small blaster. The figure also comes with a Cantina bar stool, so you can sit her down and maybe have her chatting to her friend Hammerhead, or perhaps even Han Solo! She is poseable at all limbs, enabling good play scenarios.
A truly wonderful figure, that will delight hardcore fans and look splendid in a collection. Expect to pay about five pounds for her new as boxed.
