Thanks

The first 16 figures and Jorg Sacul were the only figures produced with backgrounds. A quick search of the word background would have brought up the info. Here is the 16 figures, incase you didn't know. :)

[01] Anakin Skywalker: Outland Peasant Disguise
[02] Padmé Amidala: Arena Escape
[03] Obi-Wan Kenobi: Coruscant Chase
[04] C-3PO: Protocal Droid
[05] Kit Fisto: Jedi Master
[06] Super Battle Droid
[07] Boba Fett: Kamino Escape
[08] Tusken Raider: Female w/ Child
[09] Captain Typho: Padmé's Head of Security
[10] Shaak Ti: Jedi Master
[11] Battle Droid: Arena Battle
[12] Plo Koon: Arena Battle
[13] Jango Fett: Kamino Escape
[14] R2-D2: Coruscant Sentry
[15] Geonosian Warrior
[16] Dexter Jettster: Coruscant Informant

But don't run out to eBay right away. I've seen stores who still have the assortment with backgrounds in the stockroom, and are being placed out while stocking newer figures.

Yeah, definitely do not resort to ebay! I was able to get 15 in stores and got one through trading. They are out there, just gotta look in the back of the pegs and such, if you find a good price on ebay though, like not much above retail wtih shipping, or just at retail, I'd go for it though if those have been eluding you.
