    Okay, a couple of thoughts on E.T. Senators ("Phone Home! I mean, VOTE NOW!"). Number one, and I am just guessing here, NOT GONNA HAPPEN! The presence of these little guys in a split second of film is something of a consession. To actually make official figures of them under the Star Wars banner would be a cross-licensing nightmare. I have mixed feelings about their presence in the Senate chambers in the first place, feelings I have pointed out in another forum and thread. But from the practical standpoint, I don't see it happening. Not to belittle anyone who genuinely wants them, but just try wishing into one hand...

    Anyway, in regard to their presence in a STAR WARS film, it is rather ironic that LucasFilm "helped themselves" to someone elses properties while currently the most lucritive job for a lawer of late is to be on the LucasFilm legal team in the last three months (from the standpoint of billable hours). Lawsuits fly faster than Episode II rumors these days yet with Episode I it was open season on other peoples properties (like E.T. and 2001: A Space Odyssey). Keep that in mind if there ever is an E.T. Senator on the card...

    I think we all know that it will probably never happen, but what is the harm of throwing it on the list. On mine it did not have it's own spot, but shared it with the Wookie Senator. I would love to see the Wookie Senator, but if they added the ET senator it would be funny and cool. Still, I think we all know it isn't going to happen.
    "It can't rain all the time."

    I have to agree about the E.T senator. Being a Universal/Amblin entertainment liscensed product, it probably won't be made for a Lucasfilm/20th Cent Fox toyline.

    BUT...If Hasbro were to aquire the rights to produce E.T. toys and they HAPPENED to make a 3 3/4" figure for THAT line then (wink wink) someone might buy that figure for "Senatorial" purposes without it being an "official" Star Wars figure.

    Either way, this is a WISH LIST and a lot of people WISH to see an E.T Senator. So it made the list.

    BTW my extensive searches have NOT turned up a name for the three guys on my list yet, despite my best efforts. jargo is usually pretty good about finding character names (he directed me to Erdan in the visual dictionary). Does anybody have any idea about these guys? Especially the cat guy. He's just begging for an action figure, but he has no name as far as I can tell...

    JediCole, Lucas did not actually "help himself" to the rights of other director's intelelctual property, he put the ETs and the 2001 pods in as hidden jokes/tributes to the other films. Did you know that in Close Encounters of the Thrid Kind, the lights from the spaceship form an upside-down R2-D2? That the Millennium Falcon appears in Blade Runner? All that Lucas is doing is paying homage to the other films that he loves.
