What about the special edition shot on Bespin where they added in a shot of a Bespin guard walking and some chick when Lando is annoucning on the intercom to evacuate the city?  I'd like to see that lady made, but can't find a pic anywhere of her.

 :P

Here you go:



Those ladies are too exciting not to be made into action figures.  Do 'em both, I say!

I think their EU names are Lu-Lu Bean (Cloud City Fashionista) and Ann-Tay Lor (Bespin Hipster). 

Definitely needed to fill out those Bespin dioramas.   :D

cant say i agree with you there. i would rather have hasbro make solid characters into figures, and by solid i mean ones that actually did something besides look up and start running. i would take a guard but if hasbro started making random civilians instead of making key characters into toys id be pretty mad.
School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

Ah, wonderful pic.  Thanks for showing that.  I'd love to see such boring figures made, we just don't get enough ladies made ever in my opinion...  Talk about some obscure characters too.  I wish they had added in some sort of alien there in that shot too.  Bespin could have used a Twi'lek or a Gran or something.

As for background characters, I love 'em.  Just a little boring but they really flesh out dioramas.  Maybe they could just make a few sets as online exclusives or something, charge out the whazoo for them, and those that do want them could shell out the cash.

With all due respect, "Jango_Fett_89," you are totally wrong.  These two ladies would make great additions to the Hasbro Star Wars family.

Maybe a "Bespin Panic" scene with Wilrow Hood, those two ladies, Wiorkettle and Treva Horme.  I know I'd buy a couple of those.

There is indeed not much left to do here - and thanks for acknowledging the truth about some of those "Decipher" figures - there are TONS of photoshopped images from those cards that people are asking for as figures - let's get through the ones that you can actually see on screen first.

And with the lack of a Cantina, Palace or similar scene, coupled with the fact that for much of the movie the main characters are isolated either on the MF or Dagobah - there just isn't the charater selection left from ESB that there is from the other five movies.

As for E-3P0 - he's sort of a pewter color and therefore could definitely be done new - TC-14 does, however, work as U-3P0 from the beginning of ANH.

Will look forward to the wish list thread next week!

True, very good points... also it looks like Hasbro's more interested in exploring clone wars/early Imperial era EU stuff right now.

For some reason, this guy just looks too Star Trekish to me... kind of like the Traveller.

I feel the same way. I really don't like that design at all.
