I am really excited about this figure because he was one of my favorite characters from the cantina. I really wonder how hasbro is going to design this because aside from the head design, it's kinda bland. What are your expectations for this upcoming figure?

Re: Elis Helrot

I'm not really into cantina aliens, but this guy is too cool. I'll be getting him. I like the Scream ghostface nickname too.

Expectations? Not too much really, maybe a cloth scarf and I don't care for articulation on this guy. Actually, hinged/ball-jointed knees are a must. Swivel for everything else should be fine. A bar glass would be a good accessory too.

You know, I've never spotted this guy in the movie ever. He's one of the only ones that I haven't.

I haven't seen half these Cantina aliens in the film, but this guy looks too hilarious! Sorta like an innocent looking GhostFace.

Re: Elis Helrot

I'm expecting him to be as good and right in line with the other cantina denizens we have gotten over the last couple of years. I like that in the Hasbro q&a this week that they said that every cantina alien is what they want to accomplish before the line ends

I have this strange urge to put on a soft-goods black cloak on this figure.
Anyone know how can I get a sickle accessory fit for 3-3/4" figure.

Well now that they are doing a HS Boba Fett, I guess we should start bringing this stuff up more at Cons. Now they cannot say that they will not do Holiday Special figures. Now if they would make Chewie's family, that would be awesome.

Re: Elis Helrot

Not an overly interesting character but a fine addition to any cantina set up.

Re: Elis Helrot

I had expected Hasbro to offer us some nice aliens to celebrate the 30th anniversary. I must say im really glad they didn't put all their effort in a new batch of rehashed main characters.

Re: Elis Helrot

If this figure were to come out back in the POTF2 days i would have expected him to have a big honking gun packed alongside him. But as he wont im hoping he comes with a glass and maybe a little stand, much like Momaw Nadon did.

A glass is ok but i'd rather have some kind of original blaster for him like Bo-shek or Jerriko before him.

Re: Elis Helrot

I like any addition to the cantina. So, I will buy this simply for the fact that Hasbro even bothered to do so. I hope we do get Bom Vimdin, Saurin, and the Tonnika Sisters someday.

<font color="blue">I'd be fine with swivel wrists and elbows (ankle articulation means very little to me), but I prefer to have ball-joint shoulders on as many figures as possible.

I don't collect Cantina or Jabba's Palace figures because they are from those places (for dioramas, etc.), I collect figures that strike my fancy for one reason or another (usually because they look especially cool or interesting), and this guy is one of them.</font>

The guy looks like he ate a sour grape or something.

Even though he was in the Cantina I'm putting him in my huge Jabba's Palpace diorama.

Re: Elis Helrot

I'm definitely psyched about this figure. I can't wait to see the final sculpt. Hopefully, it'll have good articulation. We need more Cantina aliens that can sit down, so hopefully Elis will have ball-jointed knees. The ability to hold a drink would also be a plus. I'm really hoping for a ball-jointed head too, since this guy definitely has a facial expression that would fit well with amusing poses where his head is tilted, making him look confused or curious about something. Basically, as much articulation as is reasonably possible.

Re: Elis Helrot

This guy is cool, can't wait to see the figure and get it. I always love additions to the cantina, and he is very welcomed.
