But for the ultimate in obscure characters that get an action figure goes to Willrow Hood. Who? I hear you ask? Well, he's a character that briefly appears (and by brief, I mean a couple of seconds) in The Empire Strikes Back as everyone in Bespin is panicking and running for dear life from the horrible Empire holding what looks like an ice-cream-making machine.
There's even a 'Running of the Hoods' celebration day (held on the 24th of August) to celebrate this hero/looter. Star Wars fans are a weird lot. So popular was this cult figure that he finally got his own action figure in 2009. Complete with Ice Cream making machine.
But for all that, it isn't enough for some Star Wars fans, especially those with a twisted sense of humour. So I present to you, The Star Wars Toys We Really Want To See!
Some of these are actual custom toys that are for sale on Ebay. Some of them are obvious piss-takes, and some of them are...well, see for yourself.
1. Luke Skywalker Bespin Duel (minus hand)
In case you were wondering what happened to Luke's severed hand...

For those who don't wish death upon anyone, even Jar Jar, the only other option is to place him in Carbonite. Problem solved, and seriously cool gansta wall hanging. Genius!
14. Tie Fighter Debris
15. Dewback Dung
16. Rankor Skin
17. Santa Darth Maul
18. Yoda Claus.
19. Destroyed Alderaan Action Playset.
20. Smouldering Moisture Farm Playset
Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru (charred) will need the burnt-out remains of their (and Luke's) home for added emotional effect. Sold separately. Add Stormtroopers (sold separately) to the playset and Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru (alive) figures (sold separately) and re-create the scene that didn't appear on-screen. Cinema was robbed of this pivotal moment, that doesn't mean you have to be.
