So we don't have Rob to thank for commissioning customs of the Tonnikas for several hundred dollars????

Of course it happens just months after I finally finished my 15 year long customs of themů

We all thank you for your sacrifice.  Can you please finish work on a custom Tzizvvt and Yerka Mig so Hasbro makes those too?  :D

Where will the focus shift for OT fans who want main characters?

My three picks for the OT mains next year will be -

ESB Bespin Luke - Nick already covered this one...

ESB Hoth Han - we're a long way past 2007 when they did the last version and drove it into the ground with all the blue/brown and hood up/down variants.  Give him a TVC re-do with alternate hood up and hood down heads.  They can do a variant blue version too for the double dipping they love so much.

ROTJ Ewok Village Leia - those 2x POTF2 options we have are so very very dated and in need of a TVC re-do.  Maybe they will save this for an eventual Ewok Village HasLab though.  :D

I think the balloon lights will minimize the footprint without requiring wiring.  But they have a finite lifespan.

I have already started looking into LED options for lighting and found some really small bluetooth speakers that you could disguise as a small round table.  My plan is to do a playlist of the cantina sounds on a loop that I can play from my phone to the bluetooth speaker when showing off the table/room.

Please post what you figure out for the LED lights and bluetooth speaker. 

I checked out Nicklab's balloon light suggestion, but I'm hoping to find something more permanent.

I'm so excited for this Haslab, and I already love my custom cantina. Oh well, I'm in for 2 of these, one deluxe and one base.

The thing that's annoying me is the backlash on social media from collectors saying they're going to boycott this for some reason or another. Generally it's like "I've been a collector for years and have all sorts of Star Wars tattoos and no one talks about the Cantina at all," or "I'm not backing this until Hasbro guarantees they'll be making Shin, Baylan, [the list of new media demands goes on from here]." The Star Wars fan community never misses an opportunity to shoot itself in the face I suppose.

I am planning to put my modal nodes in that second alcove on the DLX side sort of like that image Scott posted.  That seems to be the most likely spot for the band to be.

I'm sure someone will come up with some kind of cheap 3rd party band riser that will fit in an alcove.  I also expect a certain someone will come up with a nice cardboard floor piece and something to close off those three open doors/arches at the back and behind the bar.  ;)

I'm sure I'll be rewatching youtube videos from old Celebration "behind the cantina scenes" type videos for inspiration and to figure out who goes where.

Matthew Cohen, the photographer who shot the glam shots of the Cantina shared with me that they used balloon LED's.  He said they're readily available on Amazon. 

Amazon - Balloon LED's

But the song "Cantina Band 2" is a little more difficult to come by.

I suppose ripping an MP3 of it would work (I own the discs).
