I agree - I don't think the hold up has to do with the sisters being "nymphos" or anything!

Just a bunch of confusion on everybody's part!

That's for sure!  It is fun to speculate though.   :)

Personally, I think the real reason is that one of the Tonnika sisters stole George's Kit Kat bar on the set back in 1976, and he's never forgiven them since.   :P

Unfortunately, as can be so common with Hasbro, I don't think we'll ever have a definitive answer to this conundrum.

I might buy one if it's made, but personally I don't understand the big hoopla. They're just two ordinary humans, with some sort of misbegotten beehive hairdos and spandex pajamas the color of '70s refrigators. I'd rather get Solomahal or Baniss Keeg or Wioslea or some freak like that.

Am I correct that their appeal originates mainly because they've been unmade so long, prolonging and thus amplifying the anticipation? The whole "want what you can't have" thing?

I was never a huge fan of getting these two, but will gladly buy them. I do however want a Yarna Da'l Gargan figure more than any other character. For some reason, she is #1 on my list of most wanted figures. I think its becuase she was supposed to be made in the vintage line, but they just never got past the prototype stage and ran out of time.

It's just the fact that we have seen those broads for 28 years in the cantina.  Some of us would like to add them to the dioramas I think.  I know I would.  I loved that scene when I was a child so it takes me back.  I don't know how to explain it.  I would just like to have them along with some others like Hem Dazon.

See I am totally with you for wanting Hem Dazon.  ;D

I thought this would be nice to show what could be made if Hasbro got the ball rolling.  We did a recent Group Project on these fine ladies.

I like the Saga packaged custom!  Still no word on these ladies for 06 right?  Sigh.

Didn't the Swami, or some such person, predict that we might see one or both in '06?

THey hinted at the possibility at the oh-so-informative Hasbro Q&A.  Matt/Jared commented on the allusion in the report that JD had around.  Might be in a thread somewhere too.

Yeah I thought there was something on it...  I still can't get over the fact you guys were up there in front and I attacked from the rear left flank...  It was a savage assault at C3.

You guys?  Try Alice the Barbarian.  That Q&A might have been the most entertaining thing I've ever seen as they so blatantly and purposefully ignored wee Matty.

He needs new multi-colored sweaters so he blends in. 

It's kinda like how Howard Stern sends out people to ask goofy questions at red carpet events and stuff, like they're press.  They have to disguise themselves eventually because they become known by everyone.  Matt's just standing out too much.
