    OK everyone, homework assignment! LOL Just kidding, don't look at me like that! ;) Who is your fave Star Wars hero and why?

    Luke Skywalker.

    To me, he is the one character in the Trilogy that changes the most. He is also quite a tragic character besides being a hero. He loses so much and is subjected to incredible amounts of horror and sadness. Luke is a fascinating character to me.

    That, and he has the best costume changes too :-}

    JF, I have to agree. :) Luke Skywalker was/ is my childhood hero. ;) I swear I was convinced at age 5 that I would be an X-Wing pilot when I grew up and by 8, that I would be a Jedi... still working on those... LOL.

    Seriously, I think that Luke is the greatest hero as well... the dynamics involved with his character are so great, and in-depth as well. I can't wait to see how we get from Padawan Obi to Old Ben as well...

    Now who's your fave villain?

    Luke Skywalker is my favorite original trilogy character and Obi-Wan for the prequel trilogy. It seems like he'll go through a similar transformation that Luke went through in the original trilogy. Of course, he loses Anakin but it would seem will play a role in saving Luke and Leia. I'm very interested in seeing how the character is developed through the rest of the trilogy.

    Gee I think I love Obi too... not sure... *looks at user name and laughs*

    OK, I'm a BIG Obi fan, you forced it out of me... I have 2 signed and framed Ewan (as Padawan Obi) pictures on my wall. :)

    Only have 1 autographed Ewan as Obi-Wan pic... But it's one of him jumping in the air with his lightsaber, which I think looks pretty sweet.

    Just out of curiousity: did you both actually meet Ewan? If not, where did you get your autographed pics?

    And for the record, my fave SW baddie is Bossk.

    Got mine off eBay and it came with a COA. Never acutally met anyone from Star Wars movies, though I hope that will change at Celebration II.

    Yeah, I think Luke would be my favorite hero, too, for all the reasons already stated.
    And I think pre-redemption Vader would be my favorite villain.

    On Tuesday the 28th I met Paul Blake (Greedo) and Richard Le Parmentier (Admiral Motti). They were in town for a comic shop appearance and expressed a great desire to see the Magic of Myth exhibit. I was able to greet them and walk them through the galleries. These guys are warm, wonderful people and I thoroughly enjoyed their wit and anecdotes of filming ANH. If you EVER get a chance to meet them...DO IT.

    Ha! If I had actually met Ewan face to face I would still be in a hospital from the shock. LOL

    You know, not long ago I sent a piece of original pencil artwork (a bust of Vader) to James Earl Jones and he kindly signed and returned it to me. What a guy. :)
