    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.

    Now that information about Celebration Anaheim is coming out, the Probe Droid is curious if you plan on attending the biggest party of 2015...
    You couldn't stop me from attending!
    I'll thinking about it...
    I'm waiting for more news before I decide.
    I can't get involved! I've got work to do!
    That's your uncle talking.
    Nope. I want to but I can't make it work.
    No way! Massively cool social events aren't my cup of tea.
