Actually, blue Snags was made first, waaaaay back in 1979 when all Kenner had for a reference was a black+white photo of Snags' face from the Holiday Special. They didn't realize he was supposed to be short and they just guessed on the color of his suit. The only thing that puzzles me, why was Lucas so particular about Snags looking accurate but still let that Walrusman slip thru the cracks? Or even the totally inaccurate Greedo? Both of them actually had roles in the movie, Snags just sat in the background!Originally posted by Tycho
[in his particular case, according to Sansweet's book, "Kenner" based him on a pic they had of an almost-Snivvian looking alien seen as a Cloud City alien. So while not exact to the vintage design, I would like this figure authentically 'redone.'
Anyways, I agree with stillakid, resculpts are great as long as they are an improvement. Not just the same old figure with a couple of different accesories.
