Hondo Ohnaka is the leader of a band of Weequay pirates and is always accompanied by Pilf Mukmuk, his Kowakian monkey lizard. The pirate chief captures Count Dooku and plans to demand a large ransom for the return of the powerful Separatist leader.

Hondo Ohnaka is the chief of a party of Weequay pirates from the planet Florrum. He is the first animated Weequay species action figure we have ever received and Hasbro did a fine job on getting in right from the start! While we are used seeing the Weequay species in a "skiff guard" (or musician) capacity for the most part up until now, we have to admit that perhaps the coolest look for this species has been the pirates. It is a great extrapolation of the skiff guard precedent set from their first appearance in Episode VI. After all, we saw one of them try to push Luke Skywalker off of a plank - this is very "pirate-ish" isn't it? Besides acting like one, their appearance in The Clone Wars is very pirate like indeed. Not only is his garb very reminiscent of Captain Hook, in place of a parrot is Pilf Mukmuk, a Kowakian monkey-lizard that seems to be more of a pest than a companion, but looks awesome nonetheless. Hondo Ohnaka made his debut appearance in The Clone Wars during season 1 and became a popular character almost immediately. Fans love seeing the Original Trilogy characters and species make their way into The Clone Wars. Well, the Weequay have entered the TV show full throttle and we hope that they continue to make many more repeat appearances.

Hondo is actually the leader of the Ohnaka Gang and we only can pray that Hasbro will attempt to make the rest of the members for us in action figure form. All of the members of this group look fantastic and would all make excellent action figures. Extremely similar to the skiff guard clan seen in Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi, this is a group of scum and villainy we hope to add to our collections completely one day just for the shear rough-around-the-edges personalities they have. And of course it would be even nicer to pair them with a large Sail Barge (but we'll save our breath for another day on this). But one could only hope. At first glance, Hondo Ohnaka looks a little bit like an animated version of Ak-rev. The colorful threads of his outfit (not as bright however) as well as being the same species causes this momentary familiarity. But if you look deeper, you will see that Ohnaka is his own unique character. Don't mistake Hondo for a musician however, because he looks like he has a lot more attitude than Ak-rev. He should because after all he is a pirate. His goggles and covered head add some mysteriousness to his character that we absolutely love. We believe you will love how it got translated to the action figure as well.

The figure does not get the highest marks in the articulation department. As a pirate, he should have more movement, but we think the figure fairs well as is. He is equipped with a blaster pistol and well as a large sword. They are sculpted quite well and colored nicely. But perhaps the best accessory is Pilf Mumuk who is essentially a red and green Salacious B. Crumb. Hasbro has crafted a miraculously tiny creature with the most delicate parts you have ever seen on an action figure. The skinny limbs and tail will likely leave your speechless. If Hasbro can make tiny plastic sculptures with this level of accuracy and authenticity, then they have the ability to do anything. Clearly, his pet is one of the best additional parts we have received with an action figure. Trust us, it is that good! Hasbro has also sculpted this "accessory" in a very engaging pose. It hugs Hondo around the neck and it looks absolutely splendid. The colors chosen for the included Kowakian monkey-lizard are very bright but they are however very accurate and complement his pirate uniform stunningly. Hondo Ohnaka is a great character choice for an action figure and we are indeed thrilled that Hasbro decided to make this one. Once again, we hope more are on the way soon. We fear that we will not be able to get enough Weequay pirates. If Hasbro can make them all this good, then we think they absolutely should!
