View Full Version : Fan's Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

08-05-2005, 08:40 PM
Clones (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1205919) - Order 66 (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=ROTS&Number=1230898) - Padme (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1266889)

This week we look at the Mos Eisley Cantina denizens, 10 characters are up for nomination in this poll, who do you want to see made the most? Who shouldn't be made? Discuss your picks!

When Hasbro gets around to them they'll need to use their imaginations like in the case of Hem Dazon who was just a head model that was used on set but since they've made up bits on past Cantina aliens they'll manage.

Due to the popularity of the Tonnika Sisters and that we all want them they have not been included, not only that but Hasbro has hinted that we might actually see one at a later date.

Just remember Hasbro might be watching so speak up about what you want!

Which one do you want?

08-05-2005, 08:43 PM
Hem Dazon!

What's up with the first guy? Looks like a melted 'Scream' mask. Too cheesy.

08-05-2005, 08:44 PM
Hem Dazon

08-05-2005, 08:49 PM
He was known as "Skull Head" originally, you can read up on the cantina aliens at the following - Cantina Roll-Call: Shedding Light on Some Alien Aliases (http://www.starwars.com/episode-iv/bts/article/f20030502/index.html)

and here's a thread (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB20&Number=595738) on it in the OT section http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

08-05-2005, 10:29 PM
I also chose Hem Dazon.

08-05-2005, 11:08 PM
Hem Dezon is the first alien you notice when you first hear the cantina music.

08-06-2005, 12:25 AM
Hem Dazon all the way!

08-06-2005, 01:56 AM
I think I read somewhere that Lak Sivrak and Dice Ibegon were, or joined, the Rebellion. Is that correct? If so, I'm goin' with Dice.

08-06-2005, 01:56 AM
Gotta be Hem Dazon. The opening shots featuring Hem and others are part of what made the cantina scene so freakin awesome.

08-06-2005, 02:51 AM
If I recall correctly, Dice and Lak fell in love and joined the Alliance. Dice died at Hoth and Lak went on to fly against the Empire at Endor, where he died as well.

By the way, I've got to go with Dazon. I love me some Arcona. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-06-2005, 03:59 AM
Do a full band in a collector box, like the new Bounty Hunter set.

Please please http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-06-2005, 04:15 AM
I chose Hem Dazon too-though I wish Bannis Keeg was on that list (I love Duros and he'd go great with Ellors Madak).

08-06-2005, 01:08 PM
not on the list, but i want:
mosep the nimbanel

08-06-2005, 01:18 PM
For me it came down to Dice Ibegon and Reegesk. I went with Dice since we have both her original and SE friends. I would really like M'iiyoom Onith also. Hem Dazon and Bom Vimdin wouldn't be bad either. As for the rest I would get them if they were made but I don't really care if they are.

08-06-2005, 01:35 PM
Hem Dazon. Dice Ibegon is a very close second.

08-06-2005, 02:11 PM
I had to go with Hem! I've wanted him for ages and ages. . .

Dice Ibegon is also a close second for me.

And the Cantina Band Member is a not so distant third.

08-06-2005, 02:34 PM
Hem Dazon- with Dice (the wormy alien) as an accessory.

08-06-2005, 03:35 PM
My vote is for Dice Lbegon.

08-06-2005, 04:00 PM
wow..i can't believe what i'm reading. for years i have been a silent witness to the injustice of dice ibegon. and now the masses have spoken. raise your fist up high in the air everybody and scream with animalistic passion as it burst forth from the floodgates of your inner being! IBEGON! IBEGON! IBEGON!! i want this figure so badly third world countries would deem me indecent and charge me with crimes against humanity. i would draw up the specs myself and fly to china to crack whips across the backs of young asian assembly line workers just to see this figure brought to light. heh hehheh heeheehee...

08-06-2005, 04:02 PM
oh and hem dazon is cool too. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-06-2005, 04:04 PM
I went with Dice because I have always like her after reading her story in the "Tales from the Cantina" book. Also I think it could be a cool figure, maybe maker her out of some kind of rubber and use a wire cord in the middle to give her all kinds of different positions. Kind of like the old Violater figure from the Spawn line...

08-06-2005, 04:19 PM
and as an accessory she would come with a key...the key to my star wars heart.

08-06-2005, 09:50 PM
I'm in with the Hem Dazon camp because he's so iconic. First creature we see in the cantina, and those sparkly eyes should be fun. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif But Trevagg's ladyfriend is a close second, for me.

08-06-2005, 11:09 PM
It was hard to choose (I want all those characters made)... but I went with Reegesk.

08-06-2005, 11:24 PM
I like Dice Ibgeon and Hem Dazon. Their both cool.

08-06-2005, 11:48 PM
I picked the band member(s), because the POTF2 versions are expensive for their quality and they are iconic. Every time I see a bith still shot or figure I sing the cantina theme in my head. Hem Dazon is my runner-up since he is the first patron we see. Off to go watch A New Hope...

08-07-2005, 01:06 AM
I voted for Hem Dazon!

08-07-2005, 04:34 AM
Hem Dazon!!!!

Got da' love em'

08-07-2005, 05:06 AM
Wait... nobody voted Onith?! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

08-07-2005, 07:35 AM
Here is my wanted list:
Brea Tonnika
Senni Tonnika
Trinto Duaba (dead-like, hooded in the cantina)
Baniss Keeg (duroser in withe shirt in the cantina)
Leesub Sirlnl (weird girl from the cantina)
Hem Dason (stik neck ailien in the cantina)
Hrchek Kal Fas/Sai'torr Kal Fas (dragon-craturs in the cantina)
Rycar Ryjerd (Little man infront of the cantina bar)
Dice Ibegon (snake like creature in the cantina)
Yerka Mig (Blond haird Playboy in cantina)
Wioslea (byer of the landspeeder)

So my vote went to Leesub Sirlnl
Only her, Hem Dason and is on my list but I guess I would like all of them eksept the band member. The one we have is O.K.

08-07-2005, 02:37 PM
Hem Dazon. How can we still not thave the first creature seen in the cantina?

08-07-2005, 03:38 PM
Herm Dazon and his nasty addiction to salt.

08-07-2005, 04:33 PM
Hem Dazon! He's one of the coolest aliens in ANH.

08-07-2005, 04:52 PM
Hem's the man, er, alien I want to see.

08-07-2005, 07:35 PM
Hem Dazon! - But Brainiac is 2nd!

08-07-2005, 08:27 PM
Hem Dezon is the first alien you notice when you first hear the cantina music.

My thoughts exactly that made me decide to choose him over the others.

08-07-2005, 08:28 PM
Hem Dazon. How can we still not thave the first creature seen in the cantina?

My thought exactly!!!

08-07-2005, 09:12 PM
Looked at pics of them all, chose Hem Dazon.

08-07-2005, 09:27 PM
Hem Dezon is the first alien you notice when you first hear the cantina music.

My thoughts exactly that made me decide to choose him over the others.


08-08-2005, 09:47 PM
The question demands to be asked: Where is the choice for Arleil Schous?

He's much more iconic to me than Hem Dazon, as much as I also enjoy him.

My vote would have gone to Dice Ibegon, had I not accidently selected "Weird Girl" while thinking of how terrible her plastic immortalization would be over any one of those aliens.

I take it Hem really does it for you based on his first appearence and adequately exotic design, but I don't remember him covered in Tales, and Dice is too cool for her very alien, exotic design, personality, relationship with Lak Sivrak, and fun to imagine role in the Rebel Alliance.

08-09-2005, 06:51 AM
I picked Hem Dazon - a very iconic Cantina Alien. I'd would also like to see Bom Vimdin and Dice Ibegon get action figures.

Where's Hr'chk Kel Fas the Sauron!? If Hasbro ever re-releases the Cantina Band figure, I'd like to see the torso retooled to be movie accurate.

08-09-2005, 08:32 AM
Hem Dazon. No question. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-09-2005, 10:59 AM
Hem Dazon

Looks like almost everyone is getting this right. This guy has to be made, he's the first creature to appear on screen - an icon!

08-09-2005, 01:52 PM
Hem Dazon! He was the first alien seen clearly because he pops right up in front of the camera.

08-09-2005, 06:22 PM
Everyone is voting Hem Dazon. How come they havent made a toy of him yet?

08-09-2005, 06:41 PM
It seems Lucasfilm hasn't determined an official anatomy for the Arcona species.

08-09-2005, 08:08 PM
I want Bom Vimdin and Hem Dazon the most of all those. I opted for Bom Vimdin over Hem but I would buy any and all Cantina or Jabba's Palace denizens if they made em.

08-09-2005, 08:35 PM
Wow, looks like I'm way out-voted on this one. My picks are Brainiac and Bom Vimdin, just because they look the coolest. Elis Helrot looks like he walked straight off the Scream set. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif I know, I know... Star Wars came first, so the Scream guy is a rip-off. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-10-2005, 05:24 PM
I agree with Inigo Montoya...the defel must be made!

Even though his close-up shot was removed in the special edition, he's still at the table in the very first shot of the cantina before Hem's head pops into the picture.

By the way, is #1 in the poll (the Scream-looking Elis Helrot guy) actually in the film? I NEVER have been able to spot him!

08-10-2005, 05:27 PM
Definetely Braniac, ever since I got his CCG card, I knew I needed his figure

08-12-2005, 11:43 AM
I want them all!!!

But I voted for Hem Dazon, he's my first choice.

It's hard to rank the Cantina crew, since they're all so cool. Out of these guys, I'd have to say Bom Vimdin is my second choice, followed by Dice Ibegon.

08-13-2005, 06:50 AM
I want M'iiyoom Onith. We need someone for Feltipern Trevagg to snuggle with. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif


Besides, aren't Hem Dazon and Bom Vimdin already on the slate to be made by Hasbro? I am sure that I saw a prototype of Bom Vimdin on Rebelscum at one point. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

08-13-2005, 01:43 PM
I believe that was a top grade custom.

08-13-2005, 08:01 PM
Cantina Band Member hands down. I've always been a big fan of him ever since I first saw him. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

08-19-2005, 11:58 AM
Hem Dazon for sure - that is the one I remember most from seeing the movie as a kid. A figure of him would be too cool.

08-19-2005, 08:41 PM
hem dazon all the way

09-18-2005, 12:43 AM
have a new sculpt of lak sivrak that comes with dice ibegon.

now that would RULE.

then all we'd need is lak back in the cantina scene because that stupid peg warming elephant looking alien doesn't cut it.

09-18-2005, 08:55 AM
lol, how do you guys know all of the cantina aliens' names? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I'd have to agree with some of the bith band members.

09-18-2005, 09:22 AM
All of the cantina sets i made at http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1388235&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=2&vc=1 check it out.

09-18-2005, 09:39 AM
Okay, where did Leebub Sirln come from? I've never heard or seen anything about this character before.

09-18-2005, 10:11 AM
http://www.starwars.com/episode-iv/bts/article/f20030502/indexp3.html look down to find her.

09-20-2005, 10:11 PM
i couldn't agree more about Hem Dazon! But i am also a fan of the cantina band as well. those will always be a favorite of mine. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

09-20-2005, 11:05 PM
They should put the cantina band members in some sort of set.

09-23-2005, 09:10 PM
They had a set a long time ago but the offer did not last long i did get one of them loose for 50 cents at a flea market.

10-05-2005, 12:14 AM
GNT keeps the party going with these great polls.

But, honestly, I'd probably pass on all of those (so I didn't vote). Only one I may get would be the cantina band member. They were actually made a few years ago as part of POTF2 (I think). They were an exclusive to the online store. The articulation could have been better, but the figures were good. Each one came with all the instruments. I got five of them, and they have a prominent spot in my display. If the new one were good enough, I'd consider getting it. But I don't think it's necessary.

10-05-2005, 06:13 AM
Well its a run away leader... Hem Dazon... only fair as he is the first Cantina alien seen in ANH.

10-05-2005, 11:48 AM
Hem Dazon. Reegesk would be cool too, just because it would be unique and new.

Hem Dazon sure has a following! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

10-19-2005, 04:26 PM
Since we are already getting a Hem Dazon, I've got to go with Elis Helrot!

10-19-2005, 05:42 PM
Am I the only one who's annoyed that they STILL haven't made a really decent basic figure for Dr. Evazan? To get the POTF2 version you have to also buy the crappy resculpts of Obi-Wan and Ponda Baba; the Cantina Set single of him would've been nice but it was never released (and Hasbro wonders why sales of the previous three were so poor with those crappy "new" versions of Ponda, Momaw and Greedo - ENOUGH GREEDOS, DANGIT!); meanwhile with the OTC version of Evazan it's the same as the POTF2 version - you gotta buy two other figures to get him (although to be fair Wuher and Kitik aren't bad).

In short, I want a basic carded Dr. Evazan. That's all. Other than that and maybe a repack of Wuher so easier availability, I don't really care what Hasbro releases from the Cantina set of characters.

10-20-2005, 10:08 PM
i dunno...i got both versions of wuhrer and evazon(they're actually just repaints) and to be honest they're both kinda lame. sadly enough i think my aunt beru figure beats out both of these guys as far as "coolness" goes. however they in turn outrank the ghastly uncle owen figure. out of all the cantina patrons i think the dirty scar face human and the dirty fat bartender were the least impressive.

10-20-2005, 10:28 PM
Good news, Hasbro went ahead and decided to produce our poll's winner.

A New Hope
Hammerhead: Cantina Denizen
R5-D4: Slacker
Hem Dazon: Cantina Denizen
Garindan The Kubaz
Han Solo
Luke Skywalker

Will he look like this, then?:

Official Lucasfilm publication photo that seems to desribe the Arcona's recognized physiology:

03-22-2006, 04:12 PM
Since Hem Dazon has a figure, he is out. Next should be M'iiyoom Onith, who would have been in the top 25 in the 2006 fans choice poll if some fans didi not write her species, and others, her name. Where is Melas? Now, how about we ban together and...


03-22-2006, 05:02 PM
With Hem Dazon on this years lineup, I can see Hasbro making Dice Ibegon and Bom Vimdin next. Bom Vimdin because he has been rumored and requested for years, and Dice Ibegon because they can create an odd non-humanoid body for a change... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

03-23-2006, 02:16 AM
Bom Vimdin should be next in line as his more recognisable then some of the others http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

03-23-2006, 07:11 AM
WE NEED A BOM VIMDIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

03-23-2006, 08:26 AM
I'd also go with Bom... Dice would be a nice pack-in though.

03-23-2006, 11:42 AM
Bom Vimdin is rumored to be in assortments later this year. I guess we'll probably find out at comic-con

03-23-2006, 12:08 PM
Dice would be a great pack-in rather than a blaster or staff with any future Cantine patrons.

03-23-2006, 12:34 PM
Hey GNT, perhaps you can redo the poll now that we are getting Hem and Bom is rumored.

03-24-2006, 03:19 PM
WhereIsTheDefel wrote,
"By the way, is #1 in the poll actually in the film?"
Elis is behind Greedo when he says somthing alon the lines of "if you give it to me, I might forget I found you"

03-24-2006, 03:44 PM
Hem Dazon for sure.

However as far as Cantina aliens go, I'd still rather see new, improved versions of Evazan and Ponda Baba.

I'll see what I can do http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

However as far as Cantina aliens go, I'd still rather see new, improved versions of Evazan and Ponda Baba.

I agree both need an upgrade - Evazan espicially. All new, SA figures with cups and weapons and we're all set.

03-26-2006, 09:53 AM
I votted for the bith band.But I'd prefer resculpts of Dr.Evaz,Ponda Baba,Wuher, and Lak Sikivia(SP).

07-09-2014, 08:38 PM
Hem Dazon no question, he's the first uncloaked alien we see in Star Wars. I'm suprised he hasn't been made already because he's pretty iconic.

07-12-2014, 11:13 PM

You realize that this is an 8 year old poll right? In any case Hem Dazon came out in the 2006 Saga line.
