LEGO 'Fat' minifigure

Hello
Can anyone help? I'm looking for ideas for a fat male minifigure to complete a Star Wars Cantina MOC that I'm working on (to be used as the barman). I think this must be me and my poor search technique but I can't find one.

Have LEGO ever produced a fat minifigure, and if so, does anyone know the code or the set it came from?

If they haven't, does anyone have any ideas on where to go for a 'fat' custom minifigure?

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

    The curved line on the torso is supposed to represent his belly - I suspect that's as fat as it gets.

    :-)

    Bombur from the Hobbit line has a bulge built into his beard element but it is a regular torso underneath.

    Owen Lars might work for you as well. He has "fat" pleats at his belt line, but he doesn't have a hairy chest like the barkeep had in the movie, he does however have the tan robes.

    I was thinking of using the Victor fig:

    http://brickset.com/minifigs/tnt027/Victor

    From the turtles set #79119 Mutation Chamber Unleashed

    He's got a suitably grumpy flesh tone face (that just seems to scream 'Droids wait outside! we don't serve their kind!'), he looks out of shape, and his grubby top at least captures the essence of the character, if not quite screen-accurate robes... but hey, he might take the robes off occasionally (smiley*)

    I wouldn't be too concerned about him being fat. Just use any minfigure that has tan robes. Qui Gon, Obi Wan, Own Lars etc.

    If you do a search, you can probably find someone that has made a custom torso sticker for their Wuher Minifigure.

    CMF S3 Sumo Wrestler torso might work

    He's wanting to do a "custom" Wuher minifigure. A half naked Sumo Wrestler will not work.

    You could retro one of the Rock Monsters perhaps, though they certainly are different enough to make attaching a head tricky...

    As somebody mentioned,

    Limited possibilities I suppose, but his chest is rotund. Stuck w/the hair though.

    Neck bracket reversed, with 1x1 round tile attached?

    Seriously, just find a robed minifigure and get concentrate on getting the head and hair right. People will know that it is Wuher and I don't think many people would notice the "fat belly" behind the bar anyway.

    I also find it hilarious that "jacky"brick flagged me on my comment :)

    This is easy, as all minifigures are fat. Yep, they are seriously overweight little dudes with a fondness for cookies, ice-cream, popsicles, candy, and croisssants. That's why in the Detective's Office set there is a prohibition on cookies, but I don't think it will help - unless LEGO changes all minifigs into those skimpy girls in the LEGO Friends line. I guess LEGO only works in extremes. :wink:

    He's not that fat anyway. I reckon Vader has a bigger chest measurement.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, much appreciated. The victor figure from TMNT looks to fit the bill, or the rancor monster trainer. Thanks again.
