I liked in the Did You Know? section:
That Leia was Luke's sister?
It would have been funnier if they had said:
That Vader was Luke's father?
I liked the Did You know?
...that Mara Jade didnt exist?
still think Vader of course, just because he was the prophecy
Yeah thats pretty much all that needs to be said. Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader is the most powerful Force user to ever be in the Star Wars universe. He was born OF the Force, the Force is his father. The prophecy explains how he is the most powerful force user, and some quote from Yoda confirms it. Gotta find it...
Yeah Ive got Spuda Fett, Ive also got the Taters of the lost Ark Indiana Jones potato head, still in the box.
Tanis and Shiv split after they left the security tower, each going to his own ship. While running to his ship Tanis felt inside his ship using the Force, disengaged the autolock and lowered the ships ramp. He ran aboard and breathed in the familiar smell of the life support air system and the stale scent of must from the ships inactive stay on Coruscant.
There was no time for a reunion however, and Tanis sped past the defunct service droid he was trying to fix at the start of this quest and stepped into the side cockpit of his YT-2400 ship.
The Raider took off just as Aliyah's ship and Shiv's were blasting through the atmosphere. A squad of black armor clad PK's sprang into the space port and Tanis wheeled the Raider around as they opened fire, but they were too late.
The Raider sped straight up into the space over Coruscant, avoiding any other turbo laser batteries that Tanis and Shiv were unable to reach.
They only had a few moments before TIE Interceptors were dispatched to...intercept them.
Tanis opens the comm. channel. Shiv and Aliyah's faces appear next to the dash.
"The Rebel Base responded to Shiv's message. Princess Leia says that nearly all the forces they've scrambled are there and the briefing is about to begin." Aliyah said as she fiddled with the her controls, preparing for lightspeed.
"Alright then, let's be on our way. Everyone has the coordinates to the Rebel base?" Tanis asked prepping for lightspeed as well. Shiv and Aliyah nod.
"Ok, see you after the jump." Tanis said and waved.
Bleep. Comm. closed
Tanis disengaged his sublight engines and a monitor flashed the alert that the reactor was ready for the jump to light speed. Tanis pulled back on the hypersace lever and...
(PS, thats not a yt-2400 but uhhh...who cares)
(Thats great, im posting tonight [EDIT:maybe not tonight...]. Keep in mind that the battle over and on Korriban is going to be massive, so if youre character needs preparation or something else nows the time to do it. And those of you who havent been posting enough, for gods sakes do it now.)
i thought boba acquired old armor that jango acquired from jaster mereel or something (not sure). of course, boba is the better of the two.
Yeah thats another story ive heard, idk which is right.
Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett himself guys!) "I think that a statue of Darth Vader will protect Bristol and keep people in line, so Darth has my vote although Boba Fett is more dangerous."
...That guy is awesome.
The success of Boba Fett in the fan base is the only reason Jango even exists. Lucas saw a way to cash in and inflated BF's role in the whole SW universe because he knew the fans would dig it. (Total sell-out)
Personally, Jango Fett does not even exist to me. I know that's harsh but I am really old school about SW. There is a bunch of stuff I could go into but just for starters...You can't tell me that a "bad ***" bounty hunter such as Jango Fett didn't think to leave his son with a nice nest-egg so that Boba didn't have to go around scrounging bits and pieces of armor here and there and use second-hand materials to get himself into shape. I mean look how clean Jango's armor is...just not buying it.
Boba Fett rules! Especially the prototype used for the Kenner card.
That's just my two cents.
Yeah i knida agree with that mentality. More and more i am starting to ignore the prequel movies. Side to side with the OT, the prequels are so damn stupid. However, i think boba's armor is Jango's repainted. I never thought it was but i think i recently read that somewhere. Also Jango did leave instructions and money and his ship to boba, he knew as a bounty hunter the lifestyle was dangerous enough to prepare his son.
It looks so damn good, im really excited. And yeah Cujo im kinda bumed about that fact too.
Wow that looks really cool. Better than hollywood stuff for sure. Nice gear on those soldiers.
Oh I am going to get so drunk.*Three beers later* *PUKE* OWW MY LIVER!!! *PUKE*
Yes i was also dragged to the museum by my mom a few years ago. Had to drive like 3 hours to get there too. It was pretty terrible.
Seriously? Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith vs. a duros
That means Vader right? Cuz yeah...i think Vader would win. Its Darth Vader for christs sake,.
Can't remember if I posted on this one or not, but I agree with Fett II - definitely the lightsabre.
"An elegant weapon for a more civilized age" - Mr Kenobi
Well said, well said...
HA! That was great, very true. I'm glad to know im a fanboy to the core. Although at the section with the nephews both wanting to be Vader, I woulda dressed one as A New Hope variant and the other as ESB or ROTJ variant...guess im a little too much eh?
Wow...is that really deadpools face? Thats pretty serious...
How is it? are the figures good? Every time i see those packs the guns are warped and stuff.
Sleeping for us is like gold; beautiful and rare. I get an average of 4-5 hours of sleep per night, though I make up for it a little bit on the weekends. Love it when I can get it.
Same here. Go to bed around 4am then wake up at 8am for class. The longest I slept was 22 hours straight if i remember right.
Val, I heard about the fighting from a former image provider/sorter who left because of the fighting.
And as for the "anyone can edit it" thing, yes I have issues with that but that's not the reason. I have before tried to fix articles only to have them changed back to their original wrong state, and that is part of the problem. But, yes, it's mainly cause I know a lot of them are wrong. I can go get, say, a reference book, find the section, and read what it says, and what wookieepedia says on the same subject will be different.
Do you have any examples? I would really want to know where these things are wrong. Im always reading those entries and i dont want to be caught with my pants down using false info in a conversation or rpg.
Well, they have good pictures, I'll give you that. I go there occasionally to grab pictures from them.
But otherwise? More than half their articles are incorrect, and they change now and then based on whim. There's a lot of infighting between the people in charge. And, well, there's a lot of "mistakes" and incorrect articles.
Where'd you hear about this? The community there always seemed fun
So? Who actually goes to wookieepedia anyway? o_0
I do. Alot actually. Whats wrong with it
Muahahahahaaaa... I'm glad i was a part in the deception.
(minor interactive post ahead)
"But first tell me one thing. Why are we going to Coruscant if Skywalker is being held on Korriban? Aren't we to be RESCUING him?" Aliyah asked Tanis, spinning around in her chair to face him.
Tanis had rasied an eyebrow when Aliyah had bossed him so sternly out of the pilots chair. Her ship or no, he was the senior Jedi of the three and should be respected as such. In fact...he may be the senior Jedi of the galaxy. This gave him a chill and he turned to answer Aliyah.
"We are going to be rescuing him. Me and Shiv need our ships to do so." Tanis said enveloping his arms in the sleeves of his robes and leaning against the bulkhead.
"But it seems...impractical." Aliyah said thinking "We should be telling Leia to start scrambling forces to go to Korriban. Every second counts Master."
"Thats correct. Thats why I had Shiv relay a message using the comm. center aboard your ship to Rebel HQ about Luke, Korriban and the massive battle that awaits." Tanis said smiling.
Aliyah stared in disbelief at the manhandling of her ship. She leaned in her chair to look down the hallway leading to the back of the ship and could vaguely see Shiv's hairy leg as he tinkered with the communication controls. She burst from her chair and stormed in. Tanis could hear her yelling at Shiv.
"What do you think your doing!"
"Is that so? Well I dont care because its not his ship!"
"Yeah well I've got a lightsaber too and I-"
Tanis tuned them out and went to the storage cell in the ship. He needed a restful meditation, he was exhausted and starving, but he didnt feel right resting in Aliyah's own quarters.
Tanis walked in and the door hissed shut behind him. The storage cell was packed with micellanious items of little interest, but there was a large bag of Hubba chips, normally served with nerfburgers. Tanis helped himself to them and dug in.
"Princess Leia, before your execution I would like you to be my guest at a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now."
"The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."
"Not after we demonstrate the power of this station. In a way, you have determined the choice of the planet that'll be destroyed first. Since you are reluctant to provide us with the location of the Rebel base, I have chosen to test this station's destructive power... on your home planet of Alderaan."
"No! Alderaan is peaceful. We have no weapons. You can't possibly..."
"You would prefer another target? A military target? Then name the system!"
"I grow tired of asking this. So it'll be the last time. Where is the Rebel base?"
".........Dantooine... They're on Dantooine."
"There. You see Lord Vader, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation. You may fire when ready."
"You're far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration. But don't worry. We will deal with your Rebel friends soon enough."
Krrrr-Haaaa..."Commence primary ignition."
A button is pressed which switches on a panel of lights. A helmeted Imperial soldier reaches overhead and pulls a lever. Another lever is pulled. Vader reaches for still another lever and a bank of lights on a panel and wall light up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_Fc9uba … re=related
Tanis sat, sweating profusely, in the storage cell of Aliyah's ship. The crates and boxes and piled items had been kicked about. Tanis reached into the Force and calmed himelf.
This had been a reocurring dream Tanis used to have soon after his home planet was oblitherated in 3 seconds. His family, his friends, his home...everything he knew before he became a Jedi was gone. Gone because of the wim of one...Imperial...Officer...
After lots of meditation and help from his former Master Olee Starstone, Tanis had been able to rid himself of the dreams back on Kashyyyk. The only other time he had them was when he visited the Graveyard of Alderaan, as it was now called. The fact he just had the dream again could either mean Aliyah had steered them wrong and had by chance come across the remnants of Alderaan, or something was...something was very very wrong in the Force. Specifically dealing with Alderaan, or survivors, orperhaps Tanis himself.
"Master Ardion, come quickly. We've-...Tanis?" Aliyah entered the storage chamber and surveyed the wreckage Tanis had caused in his sleep. She then looked at the form of Tanis, soaked in sweat, sitting up on the floor just recovering from heavy breathing.
"What happened?" She asked. Tanis could feel her trying to probe his mind for answers. He easily dismissed her pressence from it.
"Nothing. Bad dream. What's happened?"
"We've just gotten to Coruscant. I was able to get clearance because they dont have this ship registered as a Jedi's ship." Aliyah said scoffing "But me and Shiv suspect that your ships are probably impounded in the lot after your stunt in the Jedi Temple. If you're going to get them, its got to be fast. Chances are thy'll blow you out of the sky with turbo lasers anyways."
"Yes...the turbolasers...they must be deactivated before we lift off. Have we landed?"
"We're in auto pilot being guided in now."
"Very well." Tanis stood and wiped Hubba chips crumbs off his cloak. Aliyah looked at him with an arched brow and Tanis shrugged. They moved on.
Shiv was at the cockpit looked out at Coruscant below as the auto pilot landed them in the same lot they had landed in some time before.
"Did you get some rest Shiv?"
"Well its something. You know we have to disable the turbo lasers when we land right?"
<Yes. And fast. Very fast. They cant know we were here until we've made the jump to hyperspace. If you look over there you can see the PK forces being marshalled for the battle. We should leave before those Star Destroyers take off or we'll never get out of here alive.>
"Where are this lots turbo laser controls?" Aliyah asked leaning on the intruments.
<I'm guessing in the control tower opposite my ship and a little ways away from Tanis's. They've got 3 PK's at each ship, a small guard. They've probably been called back.>
With a thump and hiss, Aliyah's Nubian landed and the three Jedi looked at each other assuringly.
"Me and Shiv will go to the tower and disable the batteries. Then we'll board our ships and get out of here, you with us Aliyah. While were in the tower, man your forward canons here and make sure no reinforcements get into the tower." Tanis said taking his lightsaber off his belt.
"Done." Aliyah said and sat in the captain's chair. She activated the forward canons and they rumbled with compliance. The 6 PK's, 3 at each Jedi's ship, in the lot looked at the Nubian whos canons were activating in wonder. The access hatch opened and Tanis and Shiv stormed out of the ship, their emerald lightsabers exploding from their hilts.
The Pk's near Tanis's ship were shot by Aliyah's canons and Tanis and Shiv deflecting blaster bolts from the other three back to them, killing them. Tanis waved his lightsaber wildly facing Aliyah in the cockpit in a 'Watch my fripping ship!!' as Shiv drove his lightsaber into the door of the tower. He cut a large whole into the locked door and burst in, yelling a wookie war cry that shattered ears as well as spirits.
Tanis ran up to the hole and tapped the panel next to the door......It hissed open. Shiv looked back and shrugged at Tanis and then grabbed a PK next to him and threw him into a group of attendants who had their blasters feebily drawn.

Oh GOD yes, that is epic. Even those Rebel pilots knew they got owned with that. I had kinda forgot about the Bounty Hunter Wars, but that series is pure Fett bad assery.
wow...didnt know about that one. Niceeee....
