    Are you sure? Everything I've seen, both official and unofficial, makes it seem like it's from the script, not the novel. If you could check (and maybe provide a scan) then that would be super.

    The only prologue I'm familiar with is the one that explains the rise of the Empire, which is actually quite like how it played out in the prequels.

    This was the last vehicle seen in ROTJ that I could possibly do for this series.

    I've asked for ROTJ suggestions (they should be exclusively ROTJ else I'll get to them for another movie's selection).

    Unless there's some large outcry for electronic A-wings or B-wings, those ships really don't need a resculpt and were recently re-released, too.

    The fact that carrying-case vehicles were discussed in serveral polls made this an ideal way to present this last-chance effort for ROTJ to get one in there.


    ROTJ Winners are:

    Jabba The Hutt's sailbarge 26-2
    Speederbike resculpt 9-5
    Tatooine Skiff resculpt 15-1


    ROTJ losers were:

    Mon Calamari Starcruiser (Home One - and if this lost, so would others)
    Imperial Shuttle re-release / resculpt
    big TIE Interceptor
    Coruscant air taxi
    Coruscant air bus ???? (I'd predict it's going to go that way)

    About 16 people voted in each poll except for the fact that Jabba's Sailbarge generated huge interest and higher participation - obviously.

    Man, JJL, you're just trying to make me look stupid, aren't you? I just fished out the book, and it's The Journal of the Whills that's mentioned. I guess I remembered being confused by something for years, and, when people online started saying it was the Son of the Sun, I thought that was it.

    No Son of the Sun in the novelization. Just The Journal of the Whills, and a very different backstory for Palpatine, where it almost sounds like he's a victim of the system.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Even if it's gibberish, you gotta admit it's a huge coincidence that it sounds like the weird prophecy in the intro to the 1977 (1976?) novel, and, when you factor in Lucas's propensity to completely lie about the past when it comes to making the movies, you're entering prime conspiracy theory there.
    It was a foolish mistake, actually, they should have fuzzied up the audio a bit to make sure it didn't sound like something else before dropping it in the film:

    Also, that article debunks the prophecy appearing in the '76 novelization. You can read the prologue to the novel on Amazon, that's the only portion of the book they show actually.

    Actually, there's still the ship fans used to nickname "the hammerhead ship" before it got a fan-made name and story: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Braha...-class_gunship
    and there's also the other Mon Cal ship, the Liberty. But everybody knows these won't be made.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I beat you to the punch when it came to proving myself wrong there, Tricksy!

    As long as the job is getting done. It's busy work, always more needing to be done.

    No, holds no interest for me.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    JT, thanks for the very interesting research on the gunship used in ROTJ!

    I never would have known that information. Great find!

    Unless there's a few crying for me to poll for it, I won't bother however. (I myself would buy one though - anything cool to add to a diorama!)

    However, I've decided to run a new OT Y-Wing as a final ROTJ poll, instead of ANH one. I've got one other vehicle for ANH, and then I can pretty much end every OT poll all at about the same time (this final, last time through).

    The PT has a few more ships to poll for and of course the EU has a great library to run through from Republic, KOTOR, TOTJ, NR, DE, HTTE, RS, SOTE, TFU, and more CW, amongst any others I see having merit to add (or get requested).
