Sil Thanks Cyberlek
Sil, played by Nabil Shaban, is a member of the Mentor species, amphibian creatures from the planet Thoros Beta. Mentors have two arms and a tail but no lower limbs. They communicate via small translation devices connected to their necks. Sil works for the Galatron Mining Corporation mercilessly extracting the valuable Zeiton-7 commodity from the impoverished inhabitants of the planet Varos.
The Sil figure comes with a mobile water tank accessory which helps to keep him cool.
