When someone says "Star Wars," ... the first thing that pops into your mind is......


1. ... the image of Leia bending down in front of R2 on the Tantive IV in ANH - stillakid

2.

That's pretty sad if the first thing you think of doing is to ***** and moan about people who ***** and moan. :hurt: You must not like the movies very much.

Ditto. I still remember the awe I experienced from how MASSIVE the Star Destroyer appeared as it continued and continued into the frame.....

Somehow it doesn't seem so massive anymore. Funny how the world seems so much bigger when you're a kid.

How true! It doesn't quite have the same effect it did 30 years ago, but it's still a cool way to start the flick!

9. The opening title fading into the background, complete with music. I even recreated it for my Myspace contact table: http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa158/JediTricks/commbox.gif

10. my vintage Bossk action figure.

The toys were my first real introduction to Star Wars and Bossk was my only action figure for a long time.

I think I want to act out the persona of a total nerd and tell people I have an action figure collection. Oh wait. I sometimes do that anyway. :crazed:

Too much to even think about what I think about first.

What came to my mind when I read this question was lightsabers and OT Vader. This isn't what I always think about first, but seems to be a recurring thought when questioned about SW.

my honest answer would have to be the saber fight between Luke and Vader at the end of ROTJ, particulary when Luke goes insane and then soon finds his way, willing to die. One of my favorite moments! :thumbsup:

Honestly, I think of the music- either Imperial March or the main theme, but that's simplified- more like a gestalt of all things SW, tho the image of Vaders helmet is pretty strong in my mind
:beard: Iso & Baws
The prequels ain't SW

Me too with the music - specifically the first few bars of the main theme, coupled with the visual of the logo in yellow/orange against a space background. :pleased:
