I was planning on getting a lot of the alien one to head swap and make other guards they are losing money from me on this one and others. I think the next Q&A will be interesting as long as other site do not ask stupid questions. We have to stay on them with all of the problems we are citing. The running change of the troopers can be sold on HTS, they would sell out without a problem. They can easily deliver as long as they produce them in the same run as the first version.

Hasbro needs to stop with the variations that are supposed "to sell with the other waves." Enough is enough. They fail all the time. First beardless Hoth trooper, now Bespin dude?  >:(

And is the Scanner trooper variant supposed to sell in another wave, or is it included in the ANH wave?

Don't forget the second Utai being axed.

I actually think it's the scanning crew #2 that got canned not the Bespin guard. We already saw package shots of him, a paint master and he is slotted in every pre-sale. Has anyone seen the second scanner dude - NO. So I am starting to believe what Jeff said earlier more and more. we need to confirm this in the next Q&A.

I hope not. I'll actually cry if that's the case.

I'd prefer the 2nd scanner guy to the Star Trek rip-off Bespin Guard.

I hope you mean Star Trek ripped off SW on this alien design. As far as I know ESB came out before ST used a similar design. So it really would be ST ripping off SW not the other way around.

Even still, it looks more like a ST alien than a SW alien. Plus, I don't recall ever seeing him in ESB, so is it from the card game? That said, out of the variants that we haven't got, I'd prefer the Hoth Trooper, Scanner and Utai to him.

I want all the variants!  I'd gladly take any of these over Duddly Solo and his Power-Ranger sized Stormtrooper Helmet.  I don't get why this is such a cluster for Hasbro.  They didn't seem to have problems with variants in the initial Legends line where we had like 5 sandtroopers, 4 different battle droids, etc.  Why didn't they just pack these into later waves instead of the other crap re-packs that are warming the pegs?

Hasbro is a total failure when it comes to variants - they cant seem to do it at all - they shouldnt even annouce them anymore. I was really looking forward to the alien Bespin guard. With all the cancellations, Hasbro could put a whole wave together for next year - they can call it the 'we dont know how to manage the Legacy line to save our collective ass'...wave.

At this point they almost have a full wave of variants that they've botched the release on. Gather them up, make a 2x misfits case and put us out of our misery.

Yep  ;)

Speaking to the variant figure's origins...  Was the Bespin Guard actually in the movie or was he a TCG creation?  I thought he was the latter but now I'm not sure.

I think he was filmed but ultimately cut.

Yeah - here's a link to his Wookiepedia entry.

He's pretty creepy looking in the picture.  :o
