It was better as a random idea Darth Vader had since he was on Cloud City. They didn’t even know if it would kill Han or not. Now even the coffee table he was frozen is the same. Like everything in these spin-offs it feels grey and muted but most of all fan servicey and boring instead of creative. I’d like to get excited seeing IG-88 but I can’t after Rogue One and Solo, because this is just more of that.

What is the coffee table used for the rest of the time then? It’s perfectly sized for most humanoid life forms. Why would it have hardware built in to show Han was alive and in perfect hibernation? TCW or not, I don’t think Vader pulled this idea out of thin air. The risk came from using the crude facility on Bespin.

Oh, carbonite freezing isn’t unique anymore. Looks like it is usual business now.

Was it ever implied that it wasn’t unique? All Vader said in ESB was that Cloud City’s facilities were crude, not that anyone had never been frozen that way before. I still don’t know what they usually froze there when Vader wasn’t luring Luke into a trap. 😉

I think Star Wars is doing great. I’d say Lucas did more butchering with the the Holiday Special, Ewok Movies, special editions, and prequels, but Star Wars is still going. I love it as much as I ever did.

The level of Lucas’ involvement with the HS is questionable at best. And the Ewok movies are squarely aimed at kids in spite of Battle For Endor rivaling Alien 3 in some respects. 😉

SilverWook's vintage Star Wars newspaper clippings (and other stuff) thread. (LARGE IMAGE INTENSIVE!)
Time

Something I’ve been wanting to do for a while is share all the stuff I used to snip out of the local papers, Tv Guide, or otherwise hoard over the years. My old ISP made uploading to imgur an exasperating experience, but now that’s no longer a problem, away we go! Going to try for a semi-chronological order with this, but there are a few things I’m unsure of the exact year now. Some of this stuff was way to big for a scanner and the rest might combust like a vampire on a sunny day if I tried!
And if you’re trying to view this thread on a cell phone, I don’t know what to tell you. 😉
