ESB variant figures

I've seen pegs full of both the dark-skinned Bespin Wing guard and the bearded Hoth soldier, but I'm really wondering about the variants of these. Does the cleanshaven Hoth soldier or the Alien bespin wing guard even exist? I don't think it's the same thing as the ugnaughts as those were originally intended as a 2-pack. (Seen 2 pegs full of the blue one, too. I only ever saw 1 grey ugnaught, and I snapped him up quick!)

 

Is it just a distribution thing? I never saw Darth Krayt, Scramble on Yavin, or a Tarados Gon, for that matter.

 

Anyone know?

The Rebel was never released (was supposed to be in the AotC wave but because the production of that wave was so short it was already over by the time Hasbro realized their mistake) but should be released in a Battle Pack this year. The Bespin Guard should still be coming in the EU wave (which is now a Toys R Us exclusive). The Scanning Crew Trooper was also going to have a variant (with the other half of the scanning equipment), rumor is it will be released in the Saga Legends line either this year or next.

On a related note, but not really worthy of it's own topic, I would like to have a bunch of the Bespin troops, witht he use of head swaps, and was wondering if anyone's gone that route yet? So far, with what's available on shelf, I figure the Willrow Hood might fit the one dark-skinned fella, and hopefully the hat too, but has anyone found any other good head swaps?

Yeah, I plan on doing that, too, but cash is tight for now and I'm looking to try to get the others first. :)

Here's a couple I just finished.

 

Weemus Swall:

Just a Marlon Wayans Ripcord head dremeled out to fit. I figures the hands were close enough in color so they stayed.

 

 

Tals Wrad:

Added the head from Llats Ward and some BBI hands that were a good match. The Llats head sits a little low, but I figure these guys can't all be the same height, right?

 

I know, I wasn't really trying on the names, but hey...

Opinions?
