Hem was seated at the same table as Bom Vimdin, Braniac and Arliel Schous

Now that I see the production photo of Hem, I think Hasbro dropped the ball. They totally got the body wrong. Where's the guy holding the head on the stick? ;D

I'm liking the useable holsters on these figures.  I always wanted my figures to have them since I opened my original Hoth Han.  I used to tape the blasters to the legs of my figures back in the day to make my own holsters.

Hem Dazon has been the one figure I have looked forward to forever.  I hate to say it, but I am kind of disappointed with the body.  Dont get me wrong, Its a great sculpt and everything but it was not how I had pictured the character in my head for the last 30 years ???  I thought it would of been more alien-like and less human shaped.

Well, I've always pictured his body as...um...well, I guess I never really pictured it, so this body is suitable!

I'm fine with the body sculpt they used, seems fitting for the character, and most of the creatures in the cantina had a humanoid shape anyway.  It wasn't really until EP1 that Lucas started with the more nimble and odd body designs, which he wanted to do with his new digital technology.

You guys wanna hear an ultra-picky complaint about the new R5-D4?

They didn't paint the three back panels red.

How is it that Kenner got it right almost thirty years ago, but it's been neglected in all three modern incarnations (POTF2, 12", and Saga 2)?

That kinda **** bugs me.

I probably would not have noticed that about R5-D4.  Yeah, that is kind of funny they missed that.  At least that is an easy custom to perform.  Even I can pull that off! 

Hem - I am just glad they made one.  My only gripe is the goofy bent legs.  They kind of did that with the wolfman several years ago.  Oh well, I still want it.

Me too.  I really pictured this guy with farmer's robes or a cloak rather than a spacer's outfit, but theoretically he could have been wearing anything (including a human's body up to the wrist :P).

Because they Kenner guys rocked.  They practically invented the 3 3/4 figure.
