A Guy Walks into the Cantina
November 26, 2009

How far our modern Star Wars figure collections have come. Even an optimistic fan of the cantina characters didn’t have high hopes for getting a figure of Leesub Sirln, a.k.a. Weird Girl. But she is a part of our bar scenes now. According to her cardback bio Leesub is hiding from Imperial authorities that suspect her of having precognitive powers (Imperial speak for Force adept). I guess that explains why this lovely lady was braving the most wretched hive of scum and villainy.

 

I had a text message exchange with my buddy, xrmc20, the other day. It went like this:

xrmc20: Do u need sw leesub sirin?
CantinaDan: Got her, thx! She was originally just called "Weird Girl".
xrmc20: She certainly is weird.
CantinaDan: If you were in the cantina would you have hit on her?
xrmc20: Considering the choices, I probably would. You know Han gave it a shot.

Well, xrmc20 was on the money. We’ve uncovered proof documenting the encounter:

Its true, Han didn’t have too many choices. We don’t know what ever happened between him and Jenny. (There is indisputable proof of those two being an item.) The Tonnika sisters where occupied in conversation with Wuher the barkeep. Swilla Corey had crazy eyes. And the rest? Just not Han’s type.

Cantina Ladies
top row: Dice Ibegon, Jenny, Kitik Keed’kak, Little Aunt Beru,
bottom row: Swilla Corey, M’ilyoom Onith, Senni Tonnika, Brea Tonnika

 

And so that left Leesub Sirln. You just have to look past that noggin.

 

 

Since all this was probably only entertaining to this blog’s author I’ll try and offset it with something actually funny. If you’ve never seen Richard Pryor’s Saturday Night Live Star Bar skit its worth a viewing.

    Those Cantina guys sure got around on TV! This would have made a cool
    sitcom for Richard back in the 70′s. As for Han, I would have taken a shot at the Tonnika Sisters anyway, I’m sure Wuher wouldn’t have minded. Leesub has a cute face, though! Love her eyes and profile.

    Proof! I knew it!

    the catina creatures were just fullfiling their contract when that scetch happen. as for Leesub. Han was stupid to pass her up her and the Tonnika sisters for could show someone new meanings of romance. too bad the Tonnika sinters will never join Leesub in plastic on shelves

  • That sketch was brilliant. Now I need to go buy a Fuzz.

  • MisterPL says:

    Hasbro needs to make a “Lando Calrissian” figure so off-model it looks more like Richard Pryor. (Subtle hint.)

    • Danny CantinaDan says:

      Oh my – a Richard Pryor figure is a brilliant idea! Petition time. We got the ice cream maker guy, time for a new challenge!
