I was just leaving the Star Wars movies on before sleep some days ago, felt like watch a bit on them and the suddenly I saw him and thought "oh there he is"
for a brief moment I finally saw Yak Face. I dunno how I can have missed him all these years honestly lol. I guess I'd sooner see big foot then some of the rare characters.

Edit: Omg now when I brows through looking for it the sucker is behind luke the entire speech in the beginning of episode 6! lol I suck.

I wouldnt beat myself up on it. He's one of those ancillary characters that you'd never notice if it wasnt for the toy. I mean did anyone ever really notice pruneface?

I did not, at least not while watching the movie.

It took years before I discovered he was one of the good guys actually, who fought in the Endor mission.

"General Pruneface, is your team ready?"

doesn't seem to fit.

I think "Jabba's Palace" just became a catch all phrase for any figure that didn't seem recognizable. Fair enough also, since there are more Jabba scene figures then any other. How many you ask?? Well lets see!!

Jabba w. Salacious Crumb
Yak Face
Ree Yees
Lando Skiff
Nikto
Gam Guard
Klaatu Skiff
Weequay
Leia Boushh
Rancor Keeper
Klaatu
EV 9D9
8D8
Squidhead
Barada
Amanaman
Sy Snootles
Max Rebo
Droopy McCool

So 18 figures (20 with Jabba and Crumb)

Im not even counting Luke Jedi or Han Carbonite since you could argue they're in mulitple scenes.

Thinking about it more these folks were there too:

C3PO
R2D2
Power Droid
Chewbacca
Bossk (yep on the barge)
Boba Fett
21B (getting tourtured)


So , all in, 29 of the 93 figures are somewhere in the Jabba Scenes!

Barada is on the list, but I did forget Bib Fortuna and Dengar!

Wow 1/3 of an entire toy line in 1 Act of ROTJ!

Its so strange that Kenner, decided to make figures of Charactor's that were hardly in the movie's but left out some more mainstream charactor's! i would love to know the thinking behind the decisions made!

I think for Star Wars characters there wasn't enough time. Kenner were late getting figures out and that affected the whole line. So when they had released the 20 characters the new movie Empire was already in the making and news and rumours about it were floating around. By that time I'm guessing Kenner had to focus on the new movie and the new characters so that the figures were ready this time by the release of Empire. They didn't want to have the same delay as they did for Star Wars. So that's why Tarkin, Motti, Rebel fleet trooper, Sandtrooper etc never were produced.

To add to this:

Characters like Tarkin, Motti, Rebel fleet trooper, Sandtrooper were probably less recognized and appreciated by the majority of kids buying the toys in 1983. Already six years had passed since Star Wars was first released in the cinemas, and the kids most appreciating these SW characters, were now spending their money on skateboards and BMX bikes.

So I understand Kenner's decision to do not release those earlier characters during the ROTJ era. Purely market driven. One exception is off course Luke in Stromtrooper disguise, though a character from the first movie, he still could get along as a cool stormtrooper for the youngest generation of kids.
