View Full Version : What Would Be Fun To See

I think it would be funny ta see an old star wars thread a month or less before Episode V came out. And there would be one guy, saying, MY THEORY IS, DARTH VADER IS LUKE'S FATHER! and evrybody would think he is crazy. THat would be hard to get though

does this have anything to do with TPM?

11-18-2001, 09:16 AM
no, sorry I thought I was in the classic trilogy section

11-18-2001, 11:59 PM
I will move it to that section.

It's been so long since I've seen a trailer for ESB that I wouldn't know what to "guess" about, but here goes....

Who's that black guy in the blue shirt? Is he a friend of Han's?

Boba Fett from the Holiday special is going to show up! That'll be neato. I sent away for his action figure!

Those metal dinosaurs on the snow world look radical!

I got to level 35 on Pac-man yesterday! That was wicked!

You do realize that the internet didn't exist in 1980? Thus no discussion boards or fan sites or one-click shopping or free-porn. Heck 'Windows' didn't even exist back then! However if this is a game of "let's pretend SSG was around in the 80s" then I'll play along.

Metal dinosaurs? Have you seen something none of us have yet, Rollo? I've heard rumors of a snow battle but nothing was mentioned about metal dinosaurs!! Is it gonna be stop-motion? I bet that'll look fake as hell.

(remember the AT-ATs and Yoda were fairly well kept secrets and since there was no internet back then GL didn't have to try nearly as hard to keep stuff under wraps.)

And I've been hearing a lot about this Minch Yoda guy. Who the hell is he? Some people say he's a froglike-hermit others say he's a Jedi Master. He obviously can't be both, so which is it?

The only thing I'm really apprehensive about it Irvin Kershner directing it. Isn't he a little old? What was the last movie he did? 'The Return of a Man Called Horse' if I'm not mistaken. Wasn't that a western? What makes GL think this guy is capable of directing a space movie?

And who the hell is Lawrence Kasdan? I know the highly talented Leigh Brackett died after turning in the script first draft. But if the script was completed why have some total unknown rewrite it?

SPOILER WARNING: Anyone read the British tabloid that revealed some big surprise in store for SW2? Well if you haven't heard....(highlight to read)

Obi-Wan killed Luke's father, not Darth Vader.


11-20-2001, 11:22 PM
Oh yeah, the comic strip mentioned Luke's dad's name way back almost a year ago. It's Tan Skywalker. In case you didn't already know, which you all probably did.:rolleyes:

11-20-2001, 11:41 PM
I never saw the trailer, but I read of more wampa scenes that appeared in the trailer.

"Wow, look at those cool Abominable Snowman creatures, they're pretty neat-O. I bet the gang has to fight a whole hoard of them."

I'm just a wampa fan at heart.

11-20-2001, 11:59 PM
Does anyone know when we will start seeing the new figures? My local Piggly Wiggly got in a whole buttload of the old figures on the TESB cards but no TESB figures. Oh well, at least I was able to finally get one of those cool cloth caped Jawas, now I can feed that crappy vinyl caped one to my dog.

Oh yeah I just read that Chewbacca will definitely be in TESB. I know the fan club newsletter said he'd "probably" be in the movie; but I have seen a picture of him with a blown up Threepio on his back!!:eek:

I just got the latest mail-away figure today, Boosk I think his name is. Boy is he ugly! Anyone know what he does?

Isn't it Boss-K? I think he's the Emperor guy that Tarkin referred to in Star Wars.

, Yeah I realze, sorry I worded it wrong kinuf I meant like a discussion of some sort

11-21-2001, 05:20 PM
free porn? where's this?

11-21-2001, 07:52 PM
This Sucks. The Star Wars Franchise is dead!!! Blah blah blah. That stupid Holiday special ruined everything. hate hate hate! The Empire Strikes Back... what a stupid title. This movie looks wack, the trailer does not
look like a "Star Wars Movie" as we know it. The dialogue sucks like a scene from a Jack Horner porno. The acting is "wooden" Put money on this. Harrison Ford will NEVER amount to anything!!! Bash Bash Bash! There is too much cgi--errr I mean puppets. Snow creatures, metal dinosaurs, Billy D. Williams. I hear he plays like a Shaft-like bounty hunter or something. Stupid! George Lucas has completely lost touch with the true Star Wars world. Clearly this is just a happy kid friendly pic. And obviously we ve all heard that Ben Killed Lukes dad Tan Skywalker. It must be true. I ll bet vader tells this to luke, and then they team up to get Ben for it. Too friggin predictible. Im jumping ship. This Franchise is Dead. I just cant wait for a Godfather III to come out, then all you fan boy nerds will know what a real sequel is all about.

By the way. I love Off the Wall. But I really doubt that Michael Jackson will put out anything else, and if he does..I bet his next CD wont sell at all.

later all,

By the way, I ll bet a million-billion dollars that George Rogers wins the Heisman this year.
Go Cocks!!!!!

A star wars sequel will be terrible George Lucas should have made a new movie , like Buck Rogers or Battle Star Galactica.

What'cu talkin' 'bout, princethomas? Michael Jackson isn't into banking, selling Certificates of Deposit. He sells records, man. Maybe you were thinking of those 8-tracks. Boss! Those will be around for a long, long time. Like Helen Reddy!

You know what I heard? That Darth Vadar lives! I thought he might die in his TIE Fighter, but no, he's back to strike with his Empire. But with Tarkin dead, does that mean Vader's in charge of the Empire now?

11-22-2001, 11:34 AM
Man,.... Busted on the CD thing. Darn and I tried to get all the screw ups out.

It wasn't that difficult to fathom, even in 1980. (the father thing, not the internet)

Rollo Tomassi
11-23-2001, 12:24 PM
I can't wait until all 9 movies are out! I hope they put out a giant boxed collection of beta tapes! That would be wicked radical!

I bet Luke leads the rebels in attacking Darth Vaders Ice Castle with those giant metal robots! that's gonna be a cool finale to the movie! Even better than the Death Star in the the first movie.

And that Boos-k guy was in the cantina, so I bet they go back to Tatooine!

11-23-2001, 09:12 PM
I too can't wait for the new Empire movie to come out. I thought that I read in the new Fangoria about something called Midichlorians. Are they new monsters or Imperials? They're supposed to be really important. I can't imagine why Mr. Lucas would leave them out of the next movie. I can't wait to hear all about them. They sound so exciting! :stupid:

11-24-2001, 05:16 AM
I can't believe they recast Luke! That guy they got to play Luke, he doesn't look anything like Mark Hamill! At least there will be a ton of romance between Luke and Leia, I can't wait to see all the subtext that was built up to in Star Wars! You can tell that Lucas really wanted to make the first movie into a romance between Luke and Leia, they were made for each other. I hear almost all of the first scenes with Leia are her and Luke making out! I hope this 300 baud modem gets my post up online sometime in the next few minutes, my mom wants to get me down to the K-mart for dinner and a new pair of light brown corduroy pants.

11-24-2001, 09:19 AM
STOP!!!! Getting your hopes up. this movie is going to suck. Lucas is just using us all for his money...Blah!! He has totally lost touch with the True fan.. Now he is just making kids movies. Look how kiddie this Empire movie looks. And now a love story. Great! hes just trying suck up to the teenage girl demo. yes yes, we all know that Luke and Leia are going kiss and make out and get married and have Jedi children.. So friggin Predictable. Whats with this swampland stuff and the muppet show characters coming to Star Wars. I know a guy that has a copy of the trailer on film, and if you go frame by frame you can see that little pointy eared guy in the back ground. They say he'll have a toned down role but I dont believe it.Looks like a walking talking kiddieland racial stereotype to me.
And this crap about making 3 episodes before the first one. Crap. nobody would ever buy it. We know that they will make 7,8,9 for sure, but early ones. Rediculous
Dont be suckered in by the money machine!!!


oh, and for the love of God, someone please stop Clemson from winning the damn national title next year.

Bel-Cam Jos
11-24-2001, 10:51 AM
You guys are all wrong! Haven't you seen Ralph McQuarrie's paintings on the film? There's one where Han has blown up C-3PO and is holding Leia hostage with his gun. So I guess Han Solo really was just a mercenary after money!

And those "metal dinosaurs?" Another painting has a little ship knocking one of them down. I think the Empire used the Rebellion's tactic against them; smaller ships against bigger ones. You'd have thought the Rebels would've learned.

That floating city looks weird, in that pink water. I'll bet Chewie won't like getting his fur wet! Ha ha!

I'll be at the Mann Theatre on the first day, to see this one! It looks gnarly!

Rollo Tomassi
11-24-2001, 11:06 AM


I just read an interview with Alec Guiness that says he'll be in the next movie for a few days of shooting. I bet he's a clone of Obi Wan! Or better yet, the first Obi Wan was a clone and this guy is the real deal!! Man, I can't wait for the Obi Wan/Darth Vader rematch. Obi Wan is gonna kick his butt this time for sure!

11-24-2001, 12:30 PM

I just heard that Obi Wan DIDN'T find find the young Vader. It was a whole other guy. Obi Wan just wanders around aimlessly waiting for the other guy to die so that he'll have something to do. I can't wait!

11-25-2001, 09:39 AM
I was reading onre of the British newspapers, I think it was the daily star. And they said that they built a whole millenilium falcon for this new movie! WOW! they only made half of it for star wars. Wonder if we'll get to see more of the insides this time. Wonder if Luke and Leia make out in the sleeping quarters... :eek:
Stuart Freeborn is making creatures again I heard. Some kinda goblin creature? Anyone know what this is? We don't get much stuff in the news over here even though they're filming here. Did see a picture in the 'papers of some kind of big tree they were making. all white and the roots were really high like it was a giant tree or something. Don't know what the heck that's all about. Didn't look very good anyway. My brother got me the land of the jawas for my birthday last week and it's cool! The size is a bit small and it would have been really nice if the ecape pod had come with it but it has the sandcrawler tracks in the base and this neat little lift thing. I was hoping for the Millenilium falcon but hey! cool anyway...:D

Bel-Cam Jos
11-25-2001, 10:05 AM
Hey, Jargo. I think your Land of the Jawas set is missing a part. Mine did come with an escape pod. You know those "We Really Do Care" papers Kenner puts into their toys? Well, just write them and tell them you didn't get all the parts. I could NEVER see a toy company that didn't care about its customers. Never. Especially one that makes SW toys.

11-25-2001, 02:16 PM
Ugh, I just found out that you guys in the states get a real cool escape pod with yours and all we get is a cloth cape Jawa... And the baseplate is just totally different too. Does yours have those swinging disk things with pegs on them for sticking the figures onto? Mine doesn't.... :(

Saw a tv interview with Alec Guinness and he was talking about George Lucas. Alec just totally *****ed about George and practically called him a bad director outright! The nerve of Alec to defile the name of god! because george is just the godliest director there is - right? You know it's true.

Starlog magazine had some pictures of this camel thing with tusks in the snow and a masked guy sitting on the back. Looked really awesome! Guess he was a bad guy if he was wearing a mask like Vader does. Exept it looked less scary than Vaders.

Do you think Vader is still spinning through space? Wonder where he'll land? I don't think he's in this movie. My brother says he's dead because yu can't keep enough oxygen in such a small cockpit to keep alive for like more than a couple of weeks tops. And vaders suit can't hold much oxygen in that little box on his chest.

I was talking with my friend Chris and he said his dad told him the Millenilium falcon gets blown up in space when it crashes into a star destroyer. That can't be right can it?

11-25-2001, 06:51 PM
Didn't any of you read Splinter of the Mind's Eye??? Vader is deader than three doorknobs!!!! I don't think Mr. Lucas would just totally discount a major plot development from one of the Star Wars novels.

Speaking of Star Wars novels, did anyone else read the Han Solo books? They have these cool vehicles called "swoops" that are essentially giant hovering engines with seats! I wonder if we'll ever see anything like that in any of the movies. Probably be a special effects nightmare.

As I mentioned before that gremlin looking guy is called Minch Yoda. Or Minch as most of the first draft refers to him. He's just some little guy who tries to convince Luke that he is a Jedi Master. :rolleyes: Yeah right, I wouldn't believe it either.

11-25-2001, 07:49 PM
Hey BB, you're confusing Minch Yoda with with that Dr. Seuss book. That would mean they'd have to rename it "How the minch stole christmas" HAHAHA..... :dead: it's funnier whren you say it out loud......:rolleyes:

11-25-2001, 11:20 PM
I actually heard one of his names gets dropped so I guess we will all be refering to him as the nasty Minch.:sur: (ouch! that one actually hurt)

I just heard a nasty rumor that Kenner is planning on raising the prices of their action figures!!!:mad: I seriously might reconsider buying any more figures if the price goes above $3 per figure. And that Millenium Falcon priced at $24.77!!! Geez, are we made of money??

Anyone wanna bet that TESB ends with Luke and Leia getting married? I'd say it's a pretty good chance, which should leave Han out in the cold by the end of the movie. (especially since he looks to have killed Threepio)

Rollo Tomassi
11-26-2001, 02:31 AM
Whoa! I just read that the snow planet takes place during the opening sequence, but they are only there for a few minutes. the rest of the movie takes place on an Imperial prison city. I think thats the thing in the pink water is the Imperial Prison city where Obi Wan and Luke fight Darth Vader.

But that doesn't explain Jargo's "white tree" or the Minch guy...unless they are on the snow planet...hmmm....


11-27-2001, 09:40 AM
Soooo, what about Boba Fett? I know Kenner said he would be a major character in the new movie, but I haven't heard too much about him. I did hear a rumor about him being a kind of super-stormtrooper but the only pictures I've seen have him in some really beat up armor. I highly doubt he would walk around like that all the time, unless there is a major battle in SW2 where he gets beat up pretty bad.

El Chuxter
11-27-2001, 10:32 AM
I just read that Boba Fett is an old enemy of Obi-Wan's--he's a Mantellian Commander or something like that. And he's wearing a Wookiee scalp--I think it may be Lumpy's or Malla's. I've seen a picture of the dismantled C-3PO with Chewie holding his head, and I think maybe Chewie finds out Boba killed his family (after all, why would Lucas introduce Fett and Chewie's family in the Holiday Special unless they both play important roles in Star Wars II?). Chewie then accidentally kills C-3PO in a fit of rage and then, since Han has turned out to be evil, swears his life debt to C-3PO!

Off topic, I just read an interview with Lucas where he talked about some of the scrapped ideas from the two Star Wars films. Names like Mace Windy and Padawan? Flying whales? A second Death Star? The Imperial planet being one huge city? I'm glad he decided to chuck that Star Trek garbage!

Oh, and
Billy Dee Williams plays a clone.

11-27-2001, 10:35 AM
Most people haven't heard of this guy, Frank Oz, but he's been hired to create a planet of Muppet-like creatures. Think of all the cool new alien toys that Kenner gets to make this time! I'm sure that they'll have the whole Star Wars Cantina alien set finished and released before 1980. Everybody wants them. How long can it take?:happy:

11-27-2001, 11:50 AM


I just read this over on theforce.net:

We spoke with David Prowse concerning his role as Darth Vader in Star Wars II. He told us the following shocking information that is not for the faint of heart:
"Vader's in this lasersword fight with Luke Skywalker and I hurt him--I think I cut off his leg or something, that'll be taken care of in post-production. Anyway, I look out at him and I says, 'Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.' Then he has a line, I forget what--Mark really screwed it up with his whining and such, but something about Vader had killed his father. Then I say, 'No. Obi-Wan is your father!"

WOW! Straight from the villain's mouth! This confirms not only that Vader will be in the movie, but that Obi-Wan is Luke's father and is still alive! (Why else would Vader refer to him in the present tense?) I smell a rematch!

BTW, I'm really bummed. I just heard that Queen's next album will have synthesizer! So much for the "No Synthesizer!" pledge they've made on their previous albums. I don't think I'll buy it, but if it's any good, I might borrow a friend's 8-track when it comes out.

I was hoping disco was dead, but between this and Rod Stewart and that lousy "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" song, I think it's here to stay. :cry:

11-27-2001, 03:11 PM
Hee hee hee... I just painted my chopper bike in the colours of Luke's x-wing cuz it's like the coolest ever! Think it'll be in this movie? hope so. I'm gonna feel like a right charlie if it isn't and I'm ridin' around on an old ship... sort of thing...

Frank Oz is miss piggy right? Amd doesn't he do fozzy bear as well? That'd be really funny if these new creatures had Fozzy bears voice HAHAHA!:crazed: that'd be too funny....

Are you going to queue to see it when it comes out? My mum says i'm not allowed , something about strange guys who prey on young lads.... i don't care I'd just smack 'em one with my homemade lightsaber! I made it out of a broom handle and a pepsi bottle. It's wicked exept the pepsi bottle keeps falling off. gonna get some sellotape and wrap it round then paint it with black paint like Vaders lightsaber COOL!:D

I don't much like Queen, prefer 10CC myself. My mum won't let me buy Queen cuz that Freddy mercury is funny or somethin'..... bummer huh?!

Rollo Tomassi
11-28-2001, 10:18 AM
Freddy mercury is "happy" not funny. At least that's what my Mom calls him.

And David Prowse I heard says "Obi Wan Killed your Father." But I don't buy that rumor because that means Obi Wan and Tan Skywalker had a huge fight and they were best friends so I don't think that would happen...

hee hee. padawan is a silly word. I think a completely planet wide city would be cool, but there's no feasible way to ever make it look real on the movie screen, so take it from me, it'll NEVER HAPPEN...

Bel-Cam Jos
11-29-2001, 06:52 PM
So, do any of you think we'll finally get to see Jabba onscreen? I can't wait to see who plays that green alien with whiskers (see the current Marvel Comics series for that picture)! I think that John Schneider would make a good Jabba the Duke. :happy: But then, he's too big a star to be in a space movie...

Rollo Tomassi
11-30-2001, 10:26 AM
Who's Jabba ? Was he in the Holiday Special?

11-30-2001, 10:30 AM
Jabba is a fat Irish guy. I think he's Han Solo's drinking buddy.

I sure hope your just kidding.

El Chuxter
11-30-2001, 11:59 AM
What do we know about Jabba so far?

We know Han owes him money--something about him dumping his shipment at the first sign of an Imperial patrol. And we know that he's described in the novel for Star Wars as sort of a fat, hairy skull. This doesn't quite match the appearance in the comic book, but I guess Lucas based his novelization on an earlier draft of the screenplay. After all, when Walrusman and Snaggletooth attacked Luke in the Cantina, neither one has a thousand eyes, like the novel says.

What'll Jabba be up to? Probably conspiring with Han--he sounds like a smuggler of some sort. Maybe Boba Fett will be hired by the Empire to bring them both in. After all, bounty hunters work for the government to bring in criminals, and--like it or not--the Empire would be the government, so I think it's a safe bet.

I hope we get to see the big green rabbit, Jax (isn't that his name?), in Star Wars II!

11-30-2001, 12:51 PM
Nah we'll never see a tall, goofy, floppy eared creature in any Star Wars movie. Star Wars is too high class for that. That green rabbit was a piece of crap and Lucas knew it that's why he made Marvel fire Roy Thomas.

BTW, anyone wish Howard Chaykin was still drawing the Star Wars comics? That guy was the greatest, but I guess the workload got too heavy for him. I'm not saying Steve Leialoha isn't good, but I just like Chaykin's work much better.

El Chuxter
12-12-2001, 03:15 PM
I just saw some new footage that shows C-3PO taking a sign with a biohazard logo off a door. I can't wait to see what's behind that door! I bet that Luke has to use that big cannon I've seen pictures of him with to stop whatever it is!

12-12-2001, 06:29 PM
I think I've heard mention of a creature called a Wompom or something like that. Apparently they swim through the snow like fish in water. Hmmmm, I'm a little skeptical as to whether this can be done without looking stupid.

12-16-2001, 05:22 PM
I just read in a newspaper that Chewbacca is sent to prison and Han gets tortured to death by midgets with pet pigs. Something like that anyway. I had to read it all really quickly cuz my mum wanted the newspaper to light the fire with. Th paper said something about filming of the scenes had to be redone several times because it was relly gruesome and they didn't think that kids would be too cool about Han getting muredered. I think that's what it said. makes me wonder where Luke is while this is going on. Where's Leia and the droids? How could they capture Han and Chewie? That's so uncool! If they kill Han off I'm never watching another star wars movie ever again!:frus:

El Chuxter
02-14-2004, 04:49 PM
Oooh, I just heard that Leia and Chewie and Han will be wearing gas masks in one scene! I bet that's going to be on the Imperial prison world. Maybe it's before Han goes evil or something. With all the info, I'm having a hard time figuring out the sequencing of everything.

And I also heard that Tan Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi will show up as ghosts to save Luke from that Minch guy!! Ghosts, like totally bad-out to the max!! :D

One of my friends tried to convince me there was a character named Count Dookie who's going to show up in one of the other seven SW films, but c'mon, how totally lame is that name?
