OK, I've heard about them on multiple FC's now. People want action figures of them, even just one that they can then buy two of. And yet, when I go to Wookiepedia, there is absolutely no mention of the Tanaka sisters! Even if they're obscure characters, I would expect at least a stub in such an authoritative source.

So who are they? Or they are just an inside joke of the FC that I'm just not getting?

Well, till next time - Kittster fans unite! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

It's the Tonnika sisters and all their info can be found right here (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Tonnika_sisters).

I think it was Jason and Jimmy's accents that threw me off as far as the spelling went

Where did this fan obsession with them start? From what I'm reading, they're not even in A New Hope. So when where the characters invented?

They are in the cantina in ANH. I'm not sure what the obsession with them is, other than from the completionist side that people want every alien, every background character made into a figure.

As for there appearance, it's an EU story that says that those people we see are not the real sisters, but people impersonating them.

Oh. Thanks for the info. The whole thing makes a lot more sense now.

You're right! That's actually not them, the girls are impersonating them. It's Shada and Caroly, two very cool girl bodyguards.

I have to admit that part of me wants action figures of them even more so because they're not allowed. But I'm also one of those people who want every cantina denizen made as an action figure too. Either way, they're on my want list.

As for why they cannot be made, well any reason is a load of bunk. Make a deal, Big H! Lucasfilm, get it done! 'Surviving-Tonnika-Sister-actress' wake up and join reality. Allow whoever to make a toy of you already.

I really don't understand all the hubbub. If the EU story established that the two women seen in ANH's cantina were impostor Tonnikas, then why can't Hasbro make two woman figures in the same outfits only with completely different faces that look nothing like the two actresses? And call them whatever name you have to to avoid using the names that you apparently cannot call them by.

Which, under current rules, makes them non-existent. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
