    Comments: The poor Bespin Security Guard I gets no respect at all. Not only did he have to deal with Kenner shaving off his beard without permission, he had his name unceremoniously passed down to a guy who, although much more dramatically posed, canít hold a candle to our man in blue. Donít worry 'Bad News Bespin Brown' (thatís what his friends call him), to the vintage community you will always be number one!

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Bespin Security Guard I figure has no truly major variations. There are many minor variations in the figureís coloring and moustache, but only the most miniscule sculpt variations.

    There is rumored to exist a version with a gold hat, which was to be offered as a prize from a store in Europe, but there is not a single example documented from a reliable source. With the great ease of faking this variation, it is virtually impossible to confirm its existence.
