I never knew that it was Prowse that was the body guard of the old writer in Clockwork Orange. And then McDowell who played Alex was the villian, Doctor Soran in Star Trek Generations. Anyone else found out other somewhat unknowns about other SW actors/actresses in other movies.

David Prowse also played Hotblack Desiato's Bodyguard, in my favorite BBC Mini-series of all time. "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". I just got the DVD, and noticed that it was him, when he lifts Ford Prefect off the floor. Dang, he's a big dude!! :eek: :D

Yea, he's a big dude. I sat 3 seats away from him at the concert at Celebration 2. He was walking with a kane and still towered over me, and I'm 6'3. I sat 8 seats away from Peter Mayhew, and he's even bigger. Chewy is huge and his hand is bigger than my whole arm :)

David Prowse was also in 'Frankenstien and the Monster with Hell' with Peter "Grand Moff Tarkin" Cushing. And while we are on the subject of Peter Cushing he starred in TONS of horror movies with Christopher "Count Dooku" Lee during the late fifties and all of the sixties and early seventies. If you have not seen there movies together you should really check a few out. You will not disappointed

If he is that big does that mean we have yet to see a true to scale Vader?
If so bring him on with bendable knee feature ( the only variation now left surely):)

I haven't got either of those but I actually meant the only thing that Hasbro could possibly put on a card now, because I can't think of any more variations of Vader that would be worth buying now.


Not that that has stopped Hasbro before. I am of course referring to the invasion of the ever so slightly different Mauls:D

The guy who played Porkins also played Mjr Eaton, the Army intel. guy who hired Indy to recover the Ark of the Covenant.

(Porkins, Eaton... what is it with Lucas giving William Hootkins' characters these fat names? ;))
