The "call girl" connection has been made before, Scott, though I don't recall by whom. I honestly don't see why that would stop Hasbro from making them since they have no problem with other sexually explicit characters, not to mention gratuitous dismemberment.
And if those are prostitutes, they're WAY overdressed. Not even cleavage? C'mon, Twi'lek masseuses wear less at pod races.
My level of involvement at WEG was relegated to the art department. I didn't get to name any of those guys, but I worked with the editors who did. I did get to design a few new ships though, as well as help map out some interiors of existing ships (whether it made sense or not).
Those were the days...
