The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.


An untitled short black-and-white illustrated booklet accompanied Kenner's Imperial Troop Transporter toy. No author or illustrator is given.

Plot summaryEdit

Darth Vader orders a squad of stormtroopers to find R2-D2 and C-3PO after their escape from the Rebel Blockade Runner. On Tatooine, Dewback ground units discover the empty escape pod and the Troop Transporter is sent to track the droids down. Scanners on the Transporter pick up a Jawa sandcrawler which is then intercepted. Stormtroopers fire some warning shots and then search the sandcrawler. They discover that the droids had been on the sandcrawler but had been sold to "Owen Skywalker." Satisfied with this information, the Troop Commander orders the vehicle to open fire, killing the Jawas and destroying the sandcrawler.

ContinuityEdit

In two or three places, the story as depicted in this booklet contradicts canon that was established at the time of its writing. This booklet calls Owen Lars "Owen Skywalker." It claims the Troop Transporter, a repulsorlift vehicle, is what attacked the sandcrawler that carried C-3PO and R2-D2, yet when Luke and Obi-Wan analyze the scene in the film, they find animal tracks. (It is possible another Imperial unit came along later to plant the misleading evidence; Obi-Wan does mention the scene was staged.) Most blatantly, this booklet ends with the Troop Transporter blowing up the sandcrawler, yet the sandcrawler is clearly intact when Luke and Obi-Wan find it in the film.

LegacyEdit

The work was later referenced in 2009, in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Praji, by Nathan O'Keefe. Vader's line of "Either come back with the plans or don't come back at all!" is used as an epigraph by O'Keefe in the "Second Chances" part of his article.
