Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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.

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!

Hem Dazon! He was the first alien seen clearly because he pops right up in front of the camera.

It seems Lucasfilm hasn't determined an official anatomy for the Arcona species.

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.

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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.
I know, I know... Star Wars came first, so the Scream guy is a rip-off.

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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!

Definetely Braniac, ever since I got his CCG card, I knew I needed his figure

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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.

I want M'iiyoom Onith. We need someone for Feltipern Trevagg to snuggle with.




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.

Cantina Band Member hands down. I've always been a big fan of him ever since I first saw him.

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.

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Alien

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.

They should put the cantina band members in some sort of set.

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Alien

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.

Hem Dazon. Reegesk would be cool too, just because it would be unique and new.

Hem Dazon sure has a following!

Since we are already getting a Hem Dazon, I've got to go with Elis Helrot!

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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.

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Aliens..

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.

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
Sandtrooper

Will he look like this, then?:

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Alien

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...



VOTE FOR M'IIYOOM ONITH!

Re: Fan\'s Pick #4 - Watch Your Step! Cantina Alien

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...

I'd also go with Bom... Dice would be a nice pack-in though.

Bom Vimdin is rumored to be in assortments later this year. I guess we'll probably find out at comic-con

Dice would be a great pack-in rather than a blaster or staff with any future Cantine patrons.

Hey GNT, perhaps you can redo the poll now that we are getting Hem and Bom is rumored.

Elis is behind Greedo when he says somthing alon the lines of "if you give it to me, I might forget I found you"
