I don't think any of the Parker Brothers SW games were very good, except maybe the ESB one. That was a bitch to play on the Intellivision though.

The logo of our humble site does remind me of their ROTJ game.

I've got two questions in regard to this ad:

1. Is his lightsaber white or a very pale blue?

2. Why do I care about something so trivial?

It's probably a fluorescent light tube.

For the first time, Official Pix is offering officially licensed photos for Clive Revill in The Empire Strikes Back.

I doubt these are GOUT sourced:

One

I had a random thought. But it was so random that I forgot what it was. 

I am what all Jedi fear to become, and what all Sith wish to be. A GOD!

 I thought Revill only did the voice and some woman did the face, with a mask?

That is correct. James Early Jones could sign a photo of Darth Vader, you know.

The monkey whose eyes were matted into the shot could technically sign those photos too. ;)

If we put enough monkeys in a room with the picture, eventually one would sign it correctly.

Probably not.

 They do live longer in captivity.

One of the original Cheetahs from the Johnny Weismuller Tarzan movies was enjoying his retirement well into the 1980's. And he smoked cigars!

I'd never give him the chance. Chimps would just as soon gouge my eyes out with a pen as sign a photo for me.

Or so I've been told ... by Humphrey Bogart ... who was wearing a rainbow zoot suit and a piano key tie ... in a fever dream brought on by eating too many Guatemalan insanity peppers ...

Why do characters post ROTJ have to have weird space-names?
The characters in the OT had normal names. Luke, Ben, Han, Leia, Lando. But in the PT and EU (what little I know of both) the new characters all seem to have silly sci-fi type names. Seems goofy to me.
I'm pretty sure that trend will continue into the ST.

I know, I can't move for people called Lando in my neck of the woods.

Or Obi-Wan or Anakin (actually, that isn't true--I've met someone with that name, but he's probably named after the Star Wars character).
