Luke's surrogate father and brother: Uncle Owen Lars, played by Phil Brown in A New Hope, is assembled from many source figures. He utilizes the head of General Madine, the torso of Ben Kenobi, the arms of Lobot, the legs of Weequay, and the vinyl cape of a Tusken Raider.

Biggs Darklighter (Garrick Hagon) is recreated in his Academy uniform, as worn in scenes edited from A New Hope but which can be seen in the Star Wars Storybook, approximately page 17, and certain versions of the documentary, The Making of Star Wars. The source figure is a caucasian Bespin Security Guard with a cloak made of black felt.
