Fixer and girlfriend Camie came as a two-pack exclusive to the Star Wars "Celebration V" convention of 2010.  Many fans (myself included) were panicked initially; would these be affordable (or even available) to fans who didn't make it to the convention? Luckily within a month or two they were available online direct and at original price to boot.

When it comes to Tatooine's scumbags, I have to own them all.

Mine has a few bad paint spots on his face and belt which, like Camie, show up in photos, but are not all that noticeable to the naked eye.

The three characters I wanted the most in the mid 90's when Star Wars figures returned:  Biggs, Fixer, Camie.

Watch the extras on the Star Wars Blu-Ray set to see Fixer.  And read his Wookieepedia entry.  He's a rat, a jerk, and kind of a bully- so is Camie.
