While a background character like this seems like a potential pegwarmer, I think Figrin will not see clearance. All the fans are going to try to set up their bands. With the band having 7 members and 6 unique instruments being released, this guy is a troop builder. So even if people don't get a full band, I can see many getting several of him.Same. I suspect we can get more on sale or clearance later. Amazon and Target always have sales and discounts.
Hasbro being Hasbro, the story is almost certainly one of mold reuse overtaking the potential to sculpt a unique costume. Figrin D’an is wearing some kind of blazer in all of the promo shots and movie stills from Star Wars, but instead they put him in a bland tunic in plastic form.Wait why does the art on the back of the package have a different outfit?
Thanks for Figrin that out!The artwork is actually Barquin D'an, from the Max Rebo Band. The artist did draw the correct kloo horn mouthpiece, though. Figrin's was rigid and metal, as seen in the artwork, whereas Barquin's mouthpiece was flexible tubing.

I actually think the torso is accurate, just missing some buttons than go down the front side of the costume. These buttons secure the jacket flap seen depicted in the figure.

People think there are only 7 members of the Modal Nodes., but they're wrong.Sorry, I realized the other day I didn't include proof, and I hate it when people do that. There are indeed 7 Modal Nodes (and another Bith seated at a table who isn't in the band), but you can't tell this at all in the movie. It's understandable why so many depictions over the years show only 5 band members, because it's a lot more practical, and no one has that much room in their diorama/figure shelf/Lego model/you name it. Besides that, 6-inch figures have gotten expensive. I wouldn't want a Comic Con or PulseCon boxed set to include more than 5!
I'm going to get a sound chip, like in greeting cards, and just record my own Cantina Band clip. So much easier and I'm sure cheaper than waiting for anything deluxe Hasbro might be able to come up with, for a multipack. I also think, now having a single and deluxe out, the chance they will do a multipack is slim now, at least for long. Probably a deluxe multi pack with the other instruments is likely at somepoint.It would've been cool if they included a little 'Mad about me' sound effect with the deluxe nalan cheel version similar to the 2016 SDCC obi wan pack. That would tempt me even more to fill out the whole band
Yeah seems like a good idea. Hasbro would probably add an extortionate price on top of what is already an overly expensive figure just for a little sound chipI'm going to get a sound chip, like in greeting cards, and just record my own Cantina Band clip.
