Swoop bikes from Shadows of the Empire were added to the 1997 special edition release of Star Wars: A New Hope as Luke and Ben enter Mos Eisley spaceport. The extended scene featuresa swoop bike scaring a ronto. Dash Rendar's Outrider also makes a minor cameo in Mos Eisley, seen lifting off in the distance. Here we also see an ASP-series droid swatting an Imperial droid. Yet another addition to the Star Wars Special Edition is the appearance of the Sentinel-class landing craft seen in the new dewback scene as well as above Mos Eisley.
In Star Wars: Episode I Prince Xizor appears as a spectator in the Mos Espa Arena, thanks to the model making crew using his Micro-Machines figure to populate the crowd.
More than a decade later, we find more connections in The Clone Wars. Bossk's spaceship, Hounds Tooth, made it's first television appearance in Season 4's "Bounty." The ship was first seen in the Shadows of the Empire comic series.
