Wolfman Back In?

Author
Time
I just noticed something real interesting on the offical Star Wars website of all things. You know how they have a scene from the trilogy, with some kind of quote, you know to promote the upcoming release? Well, check out the scene that is featured right now on Starwars.com. A scene where the Wolman was replaced!? Weird I tell you, if GL and the guy who brought the mask hated it so much, but there it is. What do you guys and gals think?

EDIT: Here it is, before it gets replaced with another scene in the next few days.

What did they replace him with? I cant remember.

Some kind of elephant looking thing for the SE. I am just thinking, what's up? But then again, considering the latest SW Insider has the Vader unmasking scene with Luke and Anakin, showing Anakin's eyebrows in the pictures, but having it deleted in the DVD, maybe this is so more disinformation.

I highly doubt he would put the wolfman back in. He stated he never liked the wolfman. Rick Backer who did most of the aliens in the cantina never liked it either. He stated he meant it to be used in the background and was dissipointed that it held such a prominante place.

Jesus. But on a second thought...

Exactly what I thought as well, but I mean if you're going to advertise for the DVD's, why use a scene that no longer exists? Either way it's very weird. Thanks for your thoughts.

I think this is Lucasfilms first false advertising offense.

Hey maybe they digitally altered the wolfman so he would look better. Ugh. I feel so dirty saying that.

I doubt we will get the wolfman back. This is just blaten false advertising. I would like digital altering to all the cantina aliens. I honestly would rate them as real as anything you can find in Halloween USA. There lips don't move and there eyes don't blink.

He is calling it the Star Wars trilogy. This is the Star Wars trilogy. It says original versions knowwhere on the box. No false advertising there. However this definutly is. If the wolfman is not in the DVD then he should not be in DVD advertising.

well if George didn't like him and Rick Baker didn't like him, someone must of liked him enough to feature so prominently for 20 years, I guess he's an underdog *boom Boom* sorry for the lame-ass pun

The Wolfman, while unquestionably out of place, always gave me the creeps when I was a little kid. Those glowing red eyes...

But if they were going to repalce him, replace him with something good, not an elephant-man or a lizard-man (which subbed for him in his other shot). For those of you who have "The Art of Star Wars," remember in the Cantina sketches that jellyfish/ribbonesque alien? That sort of thing would have been a perfect subsitute, not another goofy mask.

Personally, I have a Lak Sivrak action figure displayed proudly in my room. A physical representation of the O-OT. It is ironic that they are using him in advertisment for a SE release.

I think it'd be neat to get the "Jedi Sprits" figure set.
It's the three spririts at the end of ROTJ in blue that you display on a stand.

(With Shaw of course.) That would be my physical representation of the O-OT.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I always wished I had bought that figure. Weird they made the figure when, by the time that series was released, he was eliminated because the SE was already out.

Given current events, it would be now.

Isn't this a little racist from our beloved Jedi Master?

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

Welcome Z6PO.

This brings an important issue, something I've always wondered: the whole human-alien relationship in Star Wars. Seems to me the humans are the dominant majority, the one's ruling the galaxy and the whole history behind it...

WELCOME TO THE BOARDS Z6PO!
interesting first post...

although the Cantina was swarming with aliens and stuff i think we just notice those a lot more than we do humans because its something different...
i mean how many times do we see aliens in a bar??

after all Han was in there, the bartender, the pilot who was talking to chewie at the bar... im sure there were more but i've never looked hard enough...
but then again i could be wrong...
im sure theres more aliens than humans... but maybe not by much...

One of the Wolfman species was a Jedi on the 20th chapter of the Clone Wars cartoons, by popular vote.

Maybe this had something to do with it? Maybe they figured why not keep Wolfie in there?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
