Sise Fromm (Droids 1985)

Sise is a rather lackluster figure. He has no accessories other than a purple cloth cape (and the standard Droids "gold" coin). He is an old character, so he's not even that physically active in the cartoon. One also has to wonder what the penchant for purple in this line of figures was.

Why should you get this figure? Five reasons:

1. Again: only twelve in the line – might as well get them all.

2. Reminds you of the toad you had as a kid.

3. The only crime boss Star Wars figure you’ll ever be able to own. Except for Jabba. Oh, and that Xizor guy. Oh, and another figure they made from the novels. And later probably someone else.

4. Purple cape! Can anyone say gay pride parade?

5. A good fill-in until you get that Ed Asner figure for your Mary Tyler Moore collection.


Sise Fromm was an annoo-dat (or ret) from the planet Annoo (previously Gelefil). He was also the head of one of the larger crime organizations in the galaxy. He had a son (Tig) who he hoped would take over, but was a klutz. At one point (during the Droids series) his organization constructed an immense weapons satellite (Trigon I) that would have helped him dominate all other gangs. Through a series actions by the droids and their friends, the weapon was destroyed, Boba Fett turned on Sise (his employer), and Sise and his son were jailed and executed.
