Uh...

Are you sure that's not a "Staff Guy Only" feature?

The rest of us lowly guys might not be able to do it...
(as in I don't see that "attach" bar either).

Sorry to say that this is a staff only feature. You may have to find a hosting site on the net to post pictures. Check this thread out in our Feedback section.  ;)

With that answered, I now return you to our scheduled program.  :-*

Well, I think they look about the same. I will say that it appears that this Tarkins uniform has epuilets, which, is suprising consider that we never seen them onscreen for an Imperial.
Could lend to the fact that the Imperial Uniforms in Episode III are a little more Earth like, and evolve into the more clean cut uniforms of the OT. Actually, nevermind, I'm rambling about uniforms again...

I watched half of ANH again last night with the audio commentary on

One thing GL points out in the Death Star Officer Discussion scene that I thought was interesting.  He points out how demeaning to Vader it is that he's basically the second most powerful being in the galaxy and yet he's on an even level with these officers like Tarkin and Motti.  He hints that part of this is explained in Episode III. 

I never really thought of how its demeaning to Vader more that Tarkin was always there in the Empire and therefore had Seniority.  It sort of says that the Emperor doesn't really have a use for Anakin anymore now that the Empire has wiped out the Jedi

Interesting point Scott...

I can see it, however I see Vader/Tarkin as being buddy/buddy almost...  Tarkin's line of "old friend" to Vader implies some history there that I kinda dig about the two of them.  It implies a powerful presence to Tarkin in my view...  One of the reasons I find the character one of the most intriguing of the entire Star Wars universe.

He's powerful, but not as powerful as a Jedi/Sith...  He's merely powerful through natural ability/intellect.  That's kinda what Zahn threw at us with Thrawn...  A powerful character through intellect, experience, and self-confidence.  Your average "man" who excels...  A Patton, Rommel, Lee, or Alexander, or Caeser of his time...

I always dig that in those characters. 

Tarkin's almost more evil than Vader when you think about it...  At least Vader had an excuse.  Tarkin was just a natural born dick head.  Gotta respect that. :)
