The Pilot came with the same blaster pistol as the TIE Pilot, so they must have the same wholesaler. He also came with…catch your breath…a commlink! Often mentioned but never accessorized until now! Whew! The figure came out on both ESB and ROTJ cards, and, as you'll notice from the pciture, an offer for a mail-away Ackbar.
Why should you own this figure? Five reasons:
1. Gave you hope that you would own a Cloud Car some day.
2. Gave you hope that you would get another one just like it – “But Dad, the Car needs two Pilots!”
There is no real backstory on the Car pilots, but since the Car was produced on Bespin for Bespin atmospheric use, it is presumable that the pilots were hired/recruited in Cloud City, trained, and sent out to patrol the City. For more info, check out the Twin-Pod Cloud Car entry.
