View Full Version : Please make Hem Dazon / Arcona

Dear Hasbro,
Please make that green "T head" alien from the cantina. I've been pouring through the Chronicles lately, and seeing the mask for this character I can't stress enough how badly I want him.

When Hem pops his head up at the cue of the Modal Nodes' music, well that shot epitomized the cantina scene for me ever since I was a child. I did like Hammerhead and the others from the vintage line, but I never understood why they didn't do Hem Dazon because as I said he was just so noticeable to me.
You've made several cool cantina patrons, Hem is due! I am certain there have been other requests for him in the past, and I just want to raise the issue again.

As for the details, I have no suggestions right now . . . I'll let my peers chime in with any suggestions :)

Make him, please?

We do understand that the character was simply a mask without a body, but there have been artistic versions that I like. Case in point, page 21 of the Jawa Trader in the Star Wars Insider issue 41 - the 20th Anniversary Star Wars poster. It shows our Arcona pal in simple garb. But I don't care what body you and Lucasfilm decide on, it's the distinctive head that's important to me.

Give him articulation at the head, waist, legs, knees, arms, left elbow, and left wrist. Pack him with a bar stool and a glass that's a little longer and thinner than the one that came with Zutton.

Thanks in advance. :)

I concur with the honorable delegate Caeser, a commission must be appointed to ensure the production of this figure as well as Yarna D'al Gargan and R5-D4 next year. Not to mention quite a few more I can think of. :)

Actually we don't yet know the exact figures in the Cantina sets that are exclusive to Wal-Mart this fall yet. So there is always a chance that Hem Dazon/ Arcona is one of them. Let's all hope so. :)

weren't they Panda,greedo,keed,and the hammer head dude

Panda? There's a Panda in Star Wars "Watch out - Chi Chi's got a gun!!!" :eek:

just kidding Mylow ;)

yeah Ponda Baba, Greedo, Kitik Keed'Kak and Momaw nadon were mooted to be the figures. But that was back when they were two packs. Then we heard they were single packs with the backdrops that linked together. Now? Who knows what's coming. At C2 even the Hasbro guys didn't seem to know. they were very vague in the Q&A session.

So I vote too for a Hem Dazon figure. IIRC the action fleet version that came in the cantina aliens battle pack had a nice blue outfit on dark blue and light blue with a bit of white. I thought that looked pretty cool to be honest. And considering that he's the only one from that battle pack that hasn't been made in the 4 inch scale since then it's high time we got him immortalised in plastic. As Caesar said he epitomises the cantina scene alongside the band. It isn't a cantina without the Arconan.

It seems to me that there's a clear pattern emerging here of what people want. I suggest we gather together the findings in one month and send a missive to Hasbro through the appropriate channels of what exactly we do and don't want. Anybody agree or am I way off here?

does anyone know how many more different cantina aliens Hasbro could make as figures? can someone make a list of characters that were in the cantina that were not made as figures yet? :crazed:

This guy has been one of my wants forever! He's got such a memorable screen moment! Give him his due, Hasbro!

05-06-2002, 05:51 PM
I am actually very surprised that this one's never been made since he kind of IS the alien that introduces us to the Cantina scene. Ever since I first saw Star Wars he was the alien I remembered most. I even had a couple nightmares about him as a kid! As one of the most memorable aliens from the Cantina, I would've thought we'd see this guy by now.

05-06-2002, 06:06 PM
Hey Lord Tenebrous, you got pics to match up with the names? I have barely any clue who is who on that list.

05-06-2002, 06:27 PM
I found my action leet figures of Hem Dazon and Bom Vimdim. I don't know about you but I reckon these two would be much more welcome than another greedo or Ponda Baba. Hem's outfit is top banana and I always liked the silver studded top Bom wears. I like how they both have drinks and not some lame weapon. I mean does every action figure need to be aggresive? Talk about setting a bad example to kids with all these guns and knives and wotnot. How about the cantina patrons just being there for a nice sociable drink? Wow what a radical suggestion - lynch me now please why don'tcha!

05-06-2002, 09:30 PM
Does Bom Vimdim have a drinking problem that requires he keep a drink in each hand?
I like Hem in that depiction, nice creative outfit while still looking "Star Wars".

I couldn't rule out a Panda in a SW movie after seeing moles, rats, mice, and praying mantises (or is it praying manti ? ) :D

MikeAndTheBots, follow that link to pics of the characters. I'd offer to scan them in here, but it looks like the Chronicles book would not agree with my scanner. :)

05-06-2002, 09:34 PM
Maybe Bom Vimdin is just a very generous guy and had purchased that second drink to share with a friend! Ever think about that Caesar?!;)
I'm with ya Jargo! Bom Vimdin has always been one of the coolest looking cantina aliens in my opinion! I've been hoping to see him for a while, and I really don't think we need another Ponda Baba just yet (although, on the other hand, it might be cool to have one with a removeable arm...) and we CERTAINLY don't need another Greedo!

Oops, missed that.

05-06-2002, 10:16 PM
Please make Hem Dazon!!!!!!!

05-07-2002, 01:42 AM
Now this is a figure that could actually have added some spark to the rather lifeless and bland Fan Favorite Poll.

05-08-2002, 02:02 PM
Agreed. Seems like there's really only so many characters that the majority can agree on wanting and this is one of them.

05-09-2002, 12:43 PM
I am down for him, all are cool.
