Does anyone care about the 'extended universe'?
Time

I used to.  I read 'all' the books I could get my hands off right up until about 30 years after ROTJ maybe - sometime mid New Jedi Order but got bored.

 

I recently re-visited Heir to the Empire trilogy - still love that.  Jedi Academy trilogy - OK but not as good.

 

Like someone mentioned that Han Solo trilogy is very good and I like the 'Tales from the Mos Eisley' cantina collections but apart from that not really any more.

Prequels ruined it too.

Slightly off topic but made me chuckle and I wanted to share it...

My 3 and a half year old daughter saw a bit of ESB on TV earlier when Vader & Luke are duelling and I said "look they have lightsabres like Daddy... what colour are they?"

"Daddy they are blue and pink"

I couldn't help but laugh.  I hope it is fixed in Adys ESB-R.

Chainsaw had some good ideas a while back:

Then 005 had colour ideas

I'm all for this. I like the scroll being yellow, blue or red. When I think of ROTJ, I think of green more than red though, but red works too. Adywan I beg you, please get rid of the movie title numbers. I don't want the OT associated with those pieces of crap. I wanted this done, but I never thought it had a chance of happening since Adywan said he wasn't going back to ANH.

I like the idea of the title logos appearing instead of text too. 

 

Cool logos - I have always associated ROTJ with red - I think is is from the original 'Revenge' posters that used red as the text.

I think it looks terrific. I'm not at all bothered by replacing the line Luke Skywalker with Young Skywalker, it's a total non issue for me. I can't wait to see the whole thing.

 

I can't even remember what the original was!?  I prefer Young Skywalker... it's sort of a threat at Vader that way IMO

What do you consider a 'full set' of original Star Wars figures?
Time

A long time ago... in a childhood far, far away I got my first Star Wars figures.

Obviously you have the figures released in the SW, ESB, ROTJ and POTF (80's) lines but what do you consider to be a 'full set'?

Personally in the standard figures I include variations such as:

Blue Snaggletooth

Vinyl Jawa

Obi-Wan (white & grey hair)

Luke Skywalker (blonde and brown hair)

Luke Bespin (as above)

Lando Calrissian (teeth showing & not)

Leia Bespin (2 x neck variations)

Luke Jedi (Blue & Green sabers)

 

I've probably missed some but what do you think?  I'd like to include telescoping sabers but I don't have any of these :(

Welcome Xizor. What sort of costumes do you have because i will need extras for ROTJ:R. Do you have any pics? You don't live too far from me either. Drop me a PM

Jaitea, where did you get the extra background buildings from?

We've not got any costumes (currently) but let me know what you're thinking and we can see what we can come up with.  Are you thinking full on armour or costumes.  If we can help in any capacity (and being a relative short drive away) we'll do our best!

12 month lurker first time poster so welcome to everyone - really enjoy reading some of what you guys discuss.

That last shot is pretty special!

Ady, me and a bunch of my mates love your work on SW-R - the mix of the Imperial March with the planet under the Death Star and the Star Destroyers was amazing...and the Emperors theme too was awesome!

In know this is off topic so back to ESB-R.  Can't wait to see it.  We live in Worcester (UK) so if you need any Imperials or Rebels for ROTJ-R just let me know!!

Question About The History of Originaltrilogy.com?
Time

I'd just like to say hello to everyone as I've been a lurker for about 12 months now and I can't remember how I found this website.

A good friend lent me a copy of SW-R and I've been reading ever since.

After reading Ady's recent problems I thought I would register as I'd like to join some of the debates on here.  Good forum you guys have here! :)
