Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,440

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 21, 2010

One of the most iconic aliens in the entire Star Wars saga are the Cantina Band musicians, which surprisingly didn't see plastic for the first time until 1997. Also surprising: the 2007 version of the character is the 1997 one with new paint. Is it any better?  Read on!

Cantina Band

was able to get this set from ebay for $9.00 shipped... it's a great set, and makes an great addition to the 5 members of the Cantina Band that I ordered from the fan Club when they first came out. I just wish these figures had more articulation in the legs.

still a great set.

I missed out on the Disney exclusive versions with the lighted/ musical bases though. no worries.

here's hoping that Hasbro redoes the Cantina Band as a Battlepack that includes perhaps a molded stage and small alcove, better articulation and of course include all 6 members of the band as well as a stool for the 6 musician.
