After watching the clip with the deleted sceen from A New Hope. I was thinking it would be cool if we could get a figure of Biggs in that sceen with the cape and all.

Would anyone else want this fig??? I'd be after it for sure. Also what does everyone think the chances of it actually being made are?

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Yep!

This is the figure that I wanted Hasbro to make - instead they released Biggs in his X-wing outfit - which is a great figure - however, his caped outfit is much cooler in a 1970s style.

That would be a definitive Biggs figure, in my opinion!

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

There have been innumerable threads about a Deleted Scene Biggs Darklighter figure in the "Dear Hasbro" section, but by all means, let's start another!

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Would I love a deleted scenes Biggs yeah I'd be up for it, it'll keep the tatooine Lukes company
As for the chances of seeing it made I doubt it unless Bigs somehow made it into A future fans choice poll.

Also while looking at my collection...if they can make Tatooine Luke with a floopy hat Hasbro can sure make a deleted scenes Biggs

I'd love to get an Academy uniform Biggs. Figures of Camie and Fixer might be cool too. I'd also like some figures from other deleted scenes like Han, Luke, and Leia from the deleted ROTJ sandstorm scene.

Yet Hasbro does nothing. Can Hasbro not hear the cries of our collector brethern that yearn for this figure? Why? Why? Why?

Anyway, yes I have been wanting a figure of this for a long time. I just don't know if it will ever get done.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Thanks for the link, that was the first time I had ever seen that scene. Wow, awesome.

Does anybody know if that scene will make it into next DVD release? It goes a long way to explain the conversation between Luke and his aunt and uncle at the table and gives us a lot more back store about the empire and biggs. I wish it was in the movie.

I've never seen a video of the sandstorm anywhere. Just some still photos on the net, in books like "Star Warsd 365 days", and old issues of SW Insider.

Han, Luke, and Leia (slave outfit) are wearing goggles and wrapped in brown blankets to protect them from the blowing sand. I think Lando (skiff guard) is also in the scene with goggles and Chewbacca has his injured leg bandaged.

It might be on a dvd that I should have finished downloading and burned when I get off work today. I beleive the scene exists. There is a thread in the vintage section of this site telling about where to get the dvd i'm downloading. Deleted magic is the name of it. Thanks to those guys especially JohnA for letting me know about it.

Same here ... but unfortunately, I think this figure would pegwarm like you wouldn't believe.

Yeah, They could even go crazy and do and evolutions set for biggs. 70's Tatooine getup, Imperial cadet, and new SA Rebel Pilot. Chance of that happening would be like .00001% but I would definately buy it.

What academy did Biggs attend? An imperial academy? He wanted to become a TIE Fighter pilot?

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Yup, it was the Imperial Academy! They all went to the Imperial Academy and become either pilots or officers. But in all reality they secretly wanted to join the Rebellion!!

I would want a figure, but only if it was VOTC style!! I have seen the pic of Biggs since I was a lil kid, he was just as much a part of Star Wars as Luke was, since I never saw the original movie till much later!!

I'd buy a Tatooine Biggs. A better sculpt of X-Wing Biggs would be nice, too.

Devious. Get the Empire to train you, and then turn around and use your new skills against them. The Empire must not be all that bad if Luke and Biggs wanted to join the Imperial Navy.

They just wanted to be teleported off that rock.



I remember the still photographs of this scene from the Star Wars storybook. I've been hoping for this figure for a long time. In fact, I voted for him in the first round of the Fan's Choice Poll, but he didn't make it into the top 25. Maybe next time.

I doubt it would pegwarm. All they would have to do is make it an exclusive, put it in a protective clamshell case and charge $12.99. They'd fly off the shelves.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Like I said, if it was VOTC figure, I'd be so over it!!! Especially if the cape was soft goods, like Lando's was!! It'd be awesome!! They can even use the pic that I think we all know, where it shows Biggs looking out into the canyon!! Now that would be awesome!!

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

I think he'd pegwarm as a regular figure, but maybe StarWarsShop.com could do a set with Biggs Academy, Camie, Fixer and the "new" Luke from the Tatooine Wave. I mean, it worked for the Lucas family set: Terr Teneel would certainly pegwarm up a storm as a regular figure.

Heck, I'd pay a premium for it from SWS.com.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Wasn't Han Solo once an imperial officer, too ? Is that in the novels ? I mean, there is EU information about it, but I mean the OT novels. There's a small passage hinting at how he and Chewbacca became friends, saying that he saved Chewie from slavery ...

I never cared much for that bit of EU, and never read it, so I don't know too much beyond Biggs being a TIE pilot... if you watch the deleted Tatooine scene, Biggs & Luke speak of the Academy as if it's NOT an automatic induction into Imperial military service; BUT they were both afraid of being drafted into military duty. Biggs worked on a frigate, Luke mentions he'd been hanging around Starfleet too long, yet Biggs later says he didn't want to get drafted INTO Starfleet. So I think in Lucas' mind, Biggs & some of his fellow friends were frigate crewmen, maybe shuttle pilots, that jumped ship not long after meeting Luke. If he flew any missions with Red Squadron before Yavin, it wasn't many... ANH only covers a handful of days after all.

Anyhow, the cutscene Biggs would be a decent figure. Customizers would get the most use outta him... new head (it'd make custom X-Wing Biggs much easier!), a cape, new type of jacket, new simple legs & boots... plenty of potential, but not a very exciting figure for the kids.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

Well I'm not getting my info from EU, but from the movies itself!! I mean Luke himself says if the new droids do work out, that he wanted to transfer his application to the academy, the next season before the harvest!! And I assumed that since Biggs and Tank had left, they were at the Academy!

But one EU item I do know is that Han was at it as well, until he saved Chewie's life!! And had to go on the lamb!!

I'd be up for that...it could be a "Deleted scenes Boxset" featuring them all. Good idea DarthJace.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

That part of the EU is covered pretty well in the Chewbacca comic mini-series. Han is ordered to kill Chewbacca and tells his CO that he doesn't slaughter defenseless beings. That's when he is run out of the Empire. An excellent series, a great read and an excellent tribute to Chewie.

Re: Biggs Darklighter from the deleted ANH sceen

i have thought for a very long time that this would be such a cool figure even if you werent familiar with it it would just be a cool looking adventurer type for your cantina.

i love that outfit as well as hans outfit and general landos outfit.
they all have a very cool look to them of course good looking uniforms are just goodlooking.
i know its very offtopic but i would love to see some classic galactica starbuck type figures made as well if they were done as good as the star wars figures coming out lately, again its just a cool looking outfit.

Watch the clip carefully, he shoots a glance at the girl's butt after she grabs the binoculars from Luke.

Of course he does. She was a cutie. Not to mention a [censored] star.
