10 Star Wars Questions...
« on: November 25, 2003, 09:27 AM »
After reading the great "12 facts about yourself" thread, I thought it might be nice to see everyone's personal tastes for our favorite movie saga.  Here's just a few questions, pretty general, that I thought of this morning...if you have any to add, feel free :).

1. Favorite Movie of the Saga

2. Favorite Character(s) of the Saga
    2a.  OT-Good Guy?
    2b.  OT-Bad Guy?
    2c.   PT-Good Guy?
    2d.   PT-Bad Guy?

3. Prequels or Originals?

4. Favorite Saga-Related thing to Collect (if any)

5. Favorite Item in Your Collection (if any)

6. Favorite Ship, Vessel, Bike, etc.

7. Favorite Planet

8. First Star Wars movie you saw in the Theatre

9. Favorite Color of Lightsaber

10. Favorite Song from the Saga

Bonus Questions :): Favorite Fett (Jango or Boba)?
                                Favorite New Jedi (from Prequels I guess)

For me, here's my answers:

1. Empire Strikes Back, sometimes Return of the Jedi depending on mood

2. Han Solo and Chewbacca
    2a. Han/Chewie, otherwise Yoda, Luke, Droids
    2b. Darth Vader or Boba Fett
    2c. Yoda, Obi Wan
    2d. Eventually Anakin/Vader :P, Maul and Dooku were both cool though too.

3. Like them All, but Partial to Originals

4. Most 3 3'4" Product (Figures, Vehicles, Beasts) and Unleashed

5. Not Sure, lots of Favorites...I guess I'll say either my vintage Trenchcoat Han (remember looking for/buying this figure when I was a kid), or my POTJ Bespin Capture Han, because it was a gift from my wife that she really looked for for me :)

6. Millenium Falcon

7. Tatooine or Dagobah

8. Return of the Jedi (1983), I was almost 7

9. Green

10. Main Theme, Imperial March (the easy ones I guess)

Bonus: Boba
            Plo Koon, Kit Fisto, Mace Windu

1.  ESB
2.  Chewie
2a.  see 2
2b.  Darth Vader
2c.  Obi Wan
2d.  Darth Maul, hopefully soon to be Vader
3.  OT
4.  3-3/4" figs, vehicles and Lego
5.  2 unique items - a ceramic Darth Vader bust my aunt made me when I was a wee lad (and the only item I still have from my younger days) and a poster dye of Luke on his Tauntaun.  My friend's father worked at a printing factory and had a bunch of dyes - the plates used to make the poster - left over.  Unfortunely, both of my friends parents passed away.  When it came time to clean our their house, he found them and gave me the Luke / Tauntaun one.  Both are very unique and I would get rid of everything else before I even thought about getting rid of them.
6.  B-wing
7.  Bespin
8.  ROTJ in a drive thru
9.  Red
10. Imperial March
B1.  Boba, Jango was a cheap knock off
B2.  Coleman Trebor

1. Favorite Movie of the Saga

My favorite movie is a toughie...  All 3 originals I like pretty equally, so I cannot pick one.  The battle of Hoth, the Battle of Endor, and the Battle of Yavin each hold a special place for me as favorite moments and they're each in 3 different movies.  *sigh*

2. Favorite Character(s) of the Saga
    2a.  OT-Good Guy?


OT Good Guy has gotta be Wedge.  Living through 3 movies and actually seeing a minor character evolve from a talkative "kid" to a flight leader is neat.  It's minor, but it's neat.

   2b.  OT-Bad Guy?

Easily Grand Moff Tarkin...  I like him in other movies even.  The guy just oozes Empire though, and will always be my favorite character from ALL of Star Wars (Named my cat after him for god's sake!)

   2c.  PT-Good Guy?

So far I'm digging Obi-Wan.  He was great in E2, McGregor is great overall as an actor, and he's gonna be whuppin' up on folks in E3 I believe.  I think it's a travesty that he's yet to have a really great figure in the Saga line in his E2 duds/look.

   2d.  PT-Bad Guy?

Count Dooku...  Dooku's one of the only great actors in the Prequals I believe, and pulls off his role magnificently.  He should be coaching the others on-set, not Lucas telling them what to do.

3. Prequels or Originals?

Originals, but I still like the prequal films and think they're better than what they're given credit for.  I think their box office #'s tell the final tally.  They're still lucrative films and good enough to draw HUGE support that even the die-hards couldn't muster alone.  

They aren't as good as the original 3 films, but they're nice complements to them I believe.  

4. Favorite Saga-Related thing to Collect (if any)

3.75" figure completist (still, though thinking about being more selective) and big into army building and customizing (including scratch building ships).  Beyond that, I've limited my habits and rarely buy any other collectibles...  The odd lego or rarely ever a 12" figure sneak in, but it's rare anymore.

5. Favorite Item in Your Collection (if any)

No single favorite...  Not right now.  I'm sure there will be when I finish some of my larger projects in customizing.  Especially the one I've been working on for years, literally, because I'm lazy and poor.  ;D

6. Favorite Ship, Vessel, Bike, etc.

AT-AT all the way...  The single-most ship I've studied every detail about from frame-by-frame shots, stills, EU, etc...  All for a purpose mind you, not out of boredom, but it is easily my favorite film vehicle.  The dominant piece on any battlefield I believe. :)

7. Favorite Planet

Eh, Hoth I suppose because of the battle...  Best music in the films accompanied that battle IMO.

8. First Star Wars movie you saw in the Theatre

The first I can recall was Empire Strikes back in 80, which I was 3 then...  I recall seeing it at a drive in out in Ford City (which turned into a porno drive-in), and falling asleep halfway through it.  :)

9. Favorite Color of Lightsaber

Eh, green I guess.  I don't care though, so long as it's hacking a stormtrooper in two.

10. Favorite Song from the Saga

The Battle of Hoth song or the Impy March.  I think Impy March will be on almost eveyrone's list. :)

 Favorite Fett (Jango or Boba)?

Jango all the way...  If you play Bounty Hunter on the Gamecube you almost learn to love Jango.  His character is expanded so much there, and he's the underdog, so you gotta root for the guy.  He's still ruthless and vicious, but you see he has friends too and a semi-soft side.

 Favorite New Jedi (from Prequels I guess)

Not sure of his name, but I believe it's Pablo Jill?  Orange alien seen a couple times in E2.  I dig the look more than anything, and hope for a figure.  Coleman Trebor was a nicely designed alien Jedi as well...  

Mace is cool, but just didn't get my vote.  Too basic.  I wanna see that orange guy more though.  I wanna see him go out tough in E3, and hope he's not punked by anyone.

OT kicks PT's ass.

4. Favorite Saga-Related thing to Collect (if any)
Vintage figures, actually... I think the figures are just art.

5. Favorite Item in Your Collection (if any)
One of my two Dorman paintings. Either Dewback Patrol or Battle of Hoth. Not sure which one is my favorite right now.

6. Favorite Ship, Vessel, Bike, etc.
I've always been fond of the Y-Wing and TIE Interceptor.
