Episode 4 - Tatooine - Cantina (New Pictures Coming Soon)
Final Thoughts: I must say that I give a big hand of applause to Hasbro for giving us Diorama Accesories as bonus packins with the figures. I always knew dioramas were cool - hee hee - now seems Hasbro is picking up on the fact that fans like to display their figures in movie like surroundings. I just hope that one of the future waves has the ROUND END!!!! how can a cantina exist without the end. Very happy to see also that we finally get a removable arm. is it only me, or should this feature have been on the first Ponda Baba? ;p I wish Hasbro would have used a magnet instead of a plastic plug but this is still better then the same arm as both previous releases. Adding knee joints is also a plus. Seems that all Cantina figures should have this don't you think? I would have been more excited if this wasn't version 3 but at least we got a cool Bar Section :D
