The Bespin Gantry Micro set was a lot like its Control Room counterpart-- a measly platform of plastic and four figures, all representing Luke or Darth Vader. It included a pole on which a one-handed Luke figure could hang. Collectors should note that the one-handed Luke that came with this set was different from the one included with the Micro Millennium Falcon: it had a stand whereas the Falcon Luke did not.
