The word “Hell” is a mess in it.

I’m not sure how I did this, but I’m rather proud of it.

^Nice star wars pic

Can’t you see my S-foils? They’re locked in attack position.

Also, it’s plainly visible that the target area was only two meters wide.

Bonus points for the late 70’s Kenner font. 😉

I don’t recall Kenny Baker ever being bald or overtly fond of sunglasses.

Nope. Lucas having no say over the direction of Star Wars is the best thing that could have happened to it.

EDIT:

With the notable exception of the EU being scrapped

Disagree. I think that EU being scrapped was the right decision. Imagine if the ST had to be bound to the EU. Would make it a lot worse in my opinion.

Of course we wouldn’t keep the entire EU but if Episode VII had revolved around the Thrawn Trilogy it could have ended up being a better film. Also if we remove ourselves from the PT - ST eras the Old Republic Era didn’t need to be scrapped. There were plenty of great stories they could have preserved while leaving room for new canon stories to be told.

And they’re all available in paper back with a little yellow “legends” banner. What difference does it make if they’re official?

It’s actually just a T Shirt I found on a “prequel appreciation” site. So I wouldn’t expect to see any human wearing this besides well, a prequel fan.

It would at least make the creators of the products efforts not seem in vain. For a while these people were under the impression that their works were official so to have Disney say “Yeah…you know all the hours you spent on and all the love you put into creating original stories that expanded the lore of Star Wars…we’re going to scrap all that so we can make more money”. Secondly, headcanon is good and all but every time I partake in EU material I find myself comparing it to what’s canon and I can’t stop my brain from conjuring up those thoughts.

I just think it would have created an unnecessary burden on the filmmakers. I think it was better to start with a clean slate rather than have the burden of the EU, however good it was.

And I don’t think it even matters if they’re canon or not if you can still buy them, though this comes from a guy whose personal cannon only consists of the movies.

I know I’ve said this before, but I’m certainly glad the EU got the axe. It’s cool to relearn the post-Jedi Star Wars galaxy, and there was far more crap than good in the EU as it was. Not to mention ugly, forced retcons.

I think Timothy Zahn coming back is pretty cool, though. Were I a writer, I think it might be neat to be able to go back and write a character I created from a different angle. What it means to me is that a lot of the cream of the old EU will rise to the top of the new EU: the good stories and characters and plots will be seen again.
