Simon Pegg always dreamed of being in Star Wars as a child, so when JJ Abrams gave him the opportunity to star in The Force Awakens he was pretty excited.
Even if he wasn’t playing the character he’d always wanted to play, scrap yard dealer Unkar Plutt was good enough for Pegg.
It’s little wonder, then, that he’s rather excited about taking his Star Wars experience to the next level with his very own action figure.

It’s probably just as well he was playing a creature instead of a human, because they got Unkar Plutt’s features pretty much spot on.
Saves you the trouble of trying to find an action figure that actually looks like you, Mr Pegg!
