Jek Tono Porkins was a trader and pilot from Bestine IV who, along with the other Bestines, was forced to abandon his homeworld when the Galactic Empire chose it as the site of a new military base. Seeking the opportunity to strike back at the Empire, Porkins joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic. After completing pilot training, he was assigned to Red Squadron and given the call sign Red Six. He fought heroically, but was killed in action over the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin. Porkins was played by the late character actor, William Hootkins.
This Gentle Giant exclusive was first available at San Diego Comic Con 2014. It is currently available for pre-order with an estimated arrival date in October 2014.
