Who here wants Holiday Special figures. I would love to have Chewie's family and Bea Arthur, as crazy as that is. I know the show is not great but we could use the figures. Who else would buy?

Would there be Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship/Starship figs as well? (I think thats the band that played in it)

To Hell with Lumpy and Jefferson Starship, I want me some Ackmena. Who wouldn't buy a Bea Arthur fig?!?!?!

How about the Boba Fett from the Holiday special???
It's a odd paint app, but Hasbro's liberal use of rehashes is about the only way we'd get to see this fig done. Same Boba Fett, just a new Paint app. I would think that one would truly sell.

Certainly more than just about any others from that show. With Lumpy and Mallatobuck (Malla for short-Chewie's wife), not too far behind. Hmm, maybe even Attichituck (Chewie's father).

Next time you come over I'll show you my naked picture of Bea Arthur. It was part of the ransom I got a few years ago when I held up a radio station because they wouldn't play my band's demo. ;)

They pretty much have I think. Isn't the Droids Boba Fett painted differently than the rest of the Fetts? If he's painted like he is from the Droids cartoons then you already have one.

I bought a repro off the same pic on ebay. It hangs proudly in my bathroom.

I guess that's the difference between you and me Cap, you can accept some knock off while I strive for the real deal. ;)

Teek first. Then Noa and Charal and King Terak. And then we can worry about Lumpy and Darth Maude.

I'll take a lumpy figure as long as he comes with the wookie porn him and gramps were watching.

While I love the SWHS because of it's sure cheez-eee-ness factor, I'd never buy any figures from it...NO WAY JOSEE!

Can't believe I missed you by a few minutes at the Con BTW. :cry:

Just to keep this thread constructive (and if I you'll all indulge me in a brief rant) I'd like to say that I'm really sick of hearing about how horrible the Holiday Special was. Every time that I hear someone -- be it George Lucas, someone else from Lucas & Co., or anyone around here -- going on about how lame that show was, I'd just like to say... Hey! Back then it was not only the only thing besides crappy bootlegs of "Star Wars" (later AKA "A New Hope") that we had, but at the time it was pretty damned exciting for the 11 year old kid (me) that it was made for, to watch.

NEWS FLASH: In 1979 (http://www.super70s.com/Super70s/TV/1979-80.asp) most everything on television was kind of stupid. (Though I'd kill for a show like "Soap" today.)

So... yeah! If LFL ever gets over the shame of having made "The Star Wars Holiday Special", I'd like to see a small set of figures made. (Perhaps a little box set to go along with the DVD that we'll never see... until someone learns to laugh at their "mistakes" and stops taking themselves quite so seriously.)

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to pop "Howard the Duck" into my video tape player...

Now that is a movie I want to see on DVD, and get an action figure for.

I'm not joking.
