JediDefender (http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/1-08/010Disney_StarToursOfficerLoose01_Full.jpg) had this picture of a repainted Imperial Officer that looks an awful lot like a Star Tours crew member. Either this is a weird custom or part of an upcoming set, while I think the latter is more likely given Hasbro's recent answers.

considering it's posed in front of an old unleashed package, i'd go with custom. can't see hasbro using that for a backdrop. the figure looks too "finished" for a prototype.

Wow, that is super hideous!lol

The backdrop is used by a well-known Asian seller on Ebay, I believe, who seems to have a pipeline direct to the Hasbro Star Wars action figure factory in China.

If that's the non-droid star Tours figure and not Teek or Kaink, I'm going to fly to Rhode Island and engage in some serious crotch-kicking.

That's what I was thinking as well. Also, the torso looks to be molded in orange plastic, not painted, and I doubt a customizer would go that far.

Isn't that the same background used by the guy that was selling TFU figures from the boxed set? If so it could be from a future boxed set as well.

It is in Star Tours crew colors, but the outfit is all wrong. That said, I'm confident that's what it is, just based on the orange pockets.

KAINK TOO? **** YEAH!!!

Okay, someone please check and see if I'm really alive. I'm afraid I may be in Heaven and not realize it yet.

Since I am not a figment of your imagination, you must be alive. And this must all be true. 2010 is the year of the Chuxter, I guess.

I've purchased from this guy several times in the past and have yet to know exactly how he gets all of his extensive stock. Is he a factory employee, a thief, an amazing bootlegger? I've sometimes theorized that he picked up unused, possibly defective product at a discount or possibly free.
