In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:
#49: Ello Asty action figure
So even though The Force Awakens hasn’t come out yet, I have one of the new action figures on my list. And there is a reason for it. It was rumored, and then confirmed that this character Ello Asty, an X-Wing pilot, was named after the Beastie Boys album Hello Nasty (they just took out the first letters). But wait, there’s more! The writing on the lower part of his helmet (seen in the drawing on the package) is the Star Wars Universe language of Aurebesh. The translation of the writing: Born To Ill. I don’t know anything about this character yet, but I love his figure.
