Poggle the Lesser is a minifigure released in 2013. He is also a playable character in the LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars video game, and also features in cutscenes from LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga.
Poggle the Lesser is mostly sand yellow and features printing of gold and black apparel on his chest, back, hips and upper legs, all of it with intricate designs, depicting royalty. His stomach has no apparel and has printing of exoskeleton-like plates, printing that's continued on his lower back. Poggle's arms and hands are unprinted. A clear plastic cape-like piece wedged between his head and neck. It is split into four sections, each with slightly transparent brown wing printing.
Poggle's head is a unique mould. It has a large beard-like spike of a wattle draping down the centre of his torso and two small ones to each side. He has a downturned mouth and two nostrils where a nose might be. There are ridges above his eyes and wrinkles below them. Poggles head has a wide crest shaped roughly like a crown on top.
In the Video Games
In both other games, Poggle the Lesser only appears in the cutscenes during Episode II, during the intro of the Jedi Battle level. Poggle the Lesser appears alongside Count Dooku and Jango Fett, overseeing the beginning of the executions. However, apart from his unique head, Poggle has no particular details or printing showing.
Poggle the Lesser was Archduke of Geonosis and a leading member of the Separatist Alliance. He played a vital role the beginning of the Clone Wars, as his droid factories produced the majority of the Separatists ground troops in the first battles. He was present in both Battles of Geonosis. He ultimately met his end along with all the other Separatist leaders when Darth Vader was sent to execute them. Poggle attempted to fight the Sith lord off with his cane, but was almost immediately sliced in half.
- He appears in 75017 Duel on Geonosis, though in the film he had left the area prior to when the scene took place.
- In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones he is portrayed by Marton Csokas, who also plays Celeborn in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
