Kithaba is a minifigure released in 2012, based on the Klatooinian assassin from the Star Wars universe.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Kithaba minifigure has red legs, and a dark tan torso with tan arms and brown hands which represent gloves. Printing is used on the torso to depict a dark tan jacket, tan undershirt, and a brown belt and bandolier, all of which are featured on both the front and back of the piece. Kithaba's head piece is green-grey, and features black eyes with white pupils, surrounded by dark grey, a nose, mouth with a row of teeth sticking out, and dark green printing for outlining and wrinkles. This minifigure comes with two accessories- a dark red hat, which is a piece most commonly used in the Pirates theme, and a black blaster pistol.
Background[edit | edit source]
Kithaba was a Klatooinian assassin who for a time worked as a skiff guard for Jabba the Hutt. When Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca were taken on a skiff to the Great Pit of Carkoon for execution as ordered by Jabba, Kithaba was assigned to be one of their guards. However, when a battle broke out between Jabba's forces and the team of Rebels, Skywalker knocked Kithaba off the skiff, and he was dragged into the Sarlacc and eaten.
