The Prequel Trilogy / Hands up! or down....

What's the reason Vader's hands were lowered in the operating-scene in the final cut of ROTS and TV-ads?

Did the posture look awkward?

The Prequel Trilogy / "Obi-Wan once thought like you do."
« on: May 21, 2005, 12:28 PM »
Vader says in ROTJ that Obi-Wan once thought as Luke, about him going away from the Dark Side with Luke.

I didn't really get that from ROTS. I didn't get the idea that Obi-Wan wanted to get Anakin back to the light side, but merely wanted to stop him, no matter how.

Obi-Wan didn't think there was any good in Anakin left, somthing he says so in ROTJ:"He's more machine than man now, twisted and evil." Obi-Wan implicitly says Luke is crazy thinking Vader can be turned back from the Dark Side.

If it were true, we would've gotten scenes where Obi-Wan would be pleading with Anakin to stop, to go back with him. But it seems Anakin, when Obi-Wan meets him on Mustafar, is already way too far gone over to the Dark Side for Obi-Wan to even attempt at bringing Anakin back.

Even Yoda sees Anakin as being purely evil in ROTS.

Add to that, Obi-Wan thinks the Sith can only be stopped by Vader getting killed. Luke says in ROTJ:"I can't kill my own father." to which Obi-Wan says:"Then the Emperor already has won."

The Prequel Trilogy / German TV Footage
« on: April 19, 2005, 03:43 AM »
Head over here for 2 clips of German TV Footage.

The first has Grievous walking around, and it is weird. Looks like he is modeled after a vulture, as they talk about how he came about.

The second focuses on the opening space battle.

Newbies / Hello to all!

I've signed up here yesterday after my account at RS was suspended due to not wanting to get spam.

Anyway, don't think I came over here as this is the next best thing, sure hope it doesn't look that way.

There are those who know me from over there, but for those that don't...

I am Herbert Ackermans, live in the Netherlands and am 32. I've been a fan of SW since roughly when ROTJ was released. I did see all the originals in the theater that time.

I got a few of the Kenner toys in 83-84, but only started collecting in 2001. Since then, I've acheived a full loose run of the Vintage figures with some variants accounted for, but looking for others and to upgrade some.

I'm looking forward to enjoying my stay here.
