Who's Your Favorite Cantina Alien?
« on: December 3, 2002, 06:58 PM »
It's one of the most classic and memorable scenes of Star Wars- the Cantina scene. We all remember it; the various creatures and pilots sipping their drink of choice, bar fights with whiny farmboys, severed body parts writhing on the floor...I hope this set the atmosphere for my question- Who's your favorite Cantina alien? Mine's Ponda Baba, the lovable walrus-man with the "transforming" limbs ;) :).

I like Greedo. Why? Because Han blasts him.  ;D

I'd have to go woth Momaw Nadon or as most people know his race, Hammerhead.  He looks cool and the way he talks is domn cool ;).

The guy whose name I always forget, with sideburns, he's easily seen in the scene where Han flicks the coin, "Sorry for the mess".

That would be the bartender named Wuher.

Woah, I missed this thread... But my favorite isn't Wuher, it's another guy in the scene with the coin being flipped. He's wearing black with white pin-stripes, I think.

Do you mean this guy? If so, perhaps someone here knows his name.



Star Wars is actually on TV now, as we speak, and remembered that someone on the forums mentioned the “sorry about the mess” cantina scene. I just took this pic from my VHS copy, so the quality is pretty bad, sorry.

Tie between Hammerhead and Elis Helrot.
This is what happens when you invade Wakanda

Yeah, but that white dudes not an alien, lol.

My vote goes to Kabe, she's too cute, especially with that "gimme gimme" gesture.

My favorite will always be Hammerhead.  Make a 12 inch figure of him already Hasbro.  Geez.

I'll have to agree with others in this post, and go with Hammerhead as well.  I also like knowing him better as "Hammerhead" than "Momaw Nadon" for some reason....maybe it just reminds me of simpler days :).
