THE ALIEN BESPIN GUARD *WILL* BE RELEASED!  :D
Hasbro has confirmed to Galactichunter.com that Utris M'toc will indeed come in the EU Wave 13:

Quote
Per Derryl Depriest (the guy in charge) at Hasbro, "Bespin Guard (Utris Mítoc) *will* be coming out in the EU wave.".

Good news!

Not to be a Debbie Downer - but Derryl Depriest also said that the clean shaven Hoth Rebel Trooper was going to be out in VERY limited quantities as the rest of the AOTC Wave cases shipped.

Three months later it turns out the clean shaven Hoth Rebel Trooper was never mass produced.

So as much as I too would love to get Utris M'toc, sometimes this guy doesn't know his ass from his elbow - and he "runs" the line!

Having been in Derryl's position, I can see why he made the claim about the clean shaven Hoth trooper. The factory probably told him it was produced as planned, but it really wasn't.

Clicky to check him out!

BG-J38 is looking pretty sharp to me.

Where did this droid show up? I'm surprised to see a little bugger like him in Star Wars!

Jabba's Palace in the background playing Pacman or something, but he's around.  There's a black one similar to him or EV-9D9 aboard the Death Star too, somewhere I think.

Isn't it weird that for Fodder waves we tend to get EU droids and for the EU wave we get a fodder droid?

I'm not sure I get what you mean Anton...    ???  I think I'm just not reading you right is all, can you clarify?

I think I understand what Anton is saying, I was wondering the same thing - it's odd that with the ROTS wave we get a B-A-D like the YVH-1 which is an EU creation, while with the actual EU wave, we get a droid that's actually in the background in ROTJ.

I would have thought that Hasbro would have tried to keep the theme of the wave going on into the B-A-Ds, but from the very beginning, that has not been the case. In fact when you think about it, we've probably gotten more EU droids out of the B-A-D concept then we would have through individually carded releases or EU comic packs (if those kept going).

Well, from a marketing perspective, it makes sense to mix them up.  If you don't normally buy EU, as some here have suggested, then you get an EU BAF with an OTC wave as an intro to the EU world.  Later on, there's a wave of EU figures that you might not buy all (or any) of, but since the BAD is not EU, you might be more incented to get the whole wave.  :-\

Exactly what I was saying Pete. Thanks. Sorry for being obtuse.

I gotcha now, sorry.

I agree with Jman's point too, about mixing them up...  Hasbro's pushing the that BGJ38 as a movie character in a wave of figures people may not want all of them because EU's so picky with most.  It makes sense in that regard.

I too agree - Jman's point is spot on - I hadn't really thought about it from that point of view before.

For me it's easy to overlook the possibility that some people might not even be interested in this wave -- for me it's not whether or not I'm going to get a figure in this wave, it's HOW MANY of each figure in this wave do I want to buy above and beyond my complete set MOC and my complete open set.  ;D

You have a good point, Anton.

However, I think this may be Hasbro's way of trying to lure in the old-school collectors to buy the whole EU wave in order to get the classic ROTJ droid. It's almost a set-up, if anything.  :-X
