    For what its worth, the shadow guy in KOTR has a green saber.
    Thats about the extent of my EU knowledge. Go me.

    Persoranlly, I think RGB are the only legit colors, with purple being the yuppie version. Or you can take yuppie to mean shadow (Mace was a bad-little-good-guy). I don't see any yellow, or white sabers in the movies!

    What shadow guy in KOTOR? KOTOR 1 or 2? I don't recall anyone like that in KOTOR, but I only played through it once. I haven't played the sequel.

    I think there's a yellow lightsaber in episode 2 (no, that's not an acknowledgment of the movie :p). I think one of the Jedi in the arena battle has one, but I don't remember which Jedi or which particular shot it's in.

    Some things exist whither you believe in them or not[/quote]

    There is no Star Wars saga. There is only the Star Wars Trilogy. :)[/quote]

    o_O Your own signature begs to differ! [face_laugh]

    Actually, my signature merely states an important truth. That the OUT (Original Unaltered Trilogy) will finally be released on DVD on September 12th. That's the trilogy most of us grew up with. That's the trilogy that made Uncle George all his money. We are the fans that kept him going through the years. No changes are necessary, ever. The originals are fine the way they are. Greedo never shoots, Hayden doesn't appear as Anakin, and the first movie is simply called Star Wars :)

    I suppose you could refer to the Star Wars Trilogy as the Star Wars saga. So yes, I suppose I mispoke a few posts back. My point remains that I don't consider the PT to be part of the Star Wars universe.

    Ahh yes, memories of back to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood... the great unmasking and waiting all those years to discover that Darth Vader was.....


    UNCLE FESTER!?!?:oops:

    Seriously, that was the stunned reaction of the entire 1st showing midnight crowd.

    (Course then all the crying and hugging at the very end during the Celebration)

    Hey Folks,

    I spoke to the folks at Galactic Payground today. Here's hot information!

    Venue

    The fight venue will be a small arena with a sand base, think EPII ending battle. They would love it to happen on the evening on the Saturday (Open till 9pm), it finishes earlier in the day on the Sunday so would do it late afternoon.

    All fighters must be in costume.

    Promotion

    They are giving us a booth for this event. I need volunteers to help out throughout the days of the events to set up/dismantle.

    Costumes are ideal for all volunteers, they can be any kind of Sci Fi costume (For a simple idea, think Men in Black). Costumed Fighters, feel free to hang around/help the booth as much as possible, it'll be shaded and we'll have water/snacks.

    What do I need to do?

    Fighters - I need your names as soon as you can so we can get you all set up and know how many there will be.

    Volunteers - I need names of people who can help out at the booth. It's purely promotional so we'll need banners, flyers, sign up sheets etc for each fan force

    If you have any questions please let me know in here or here

    Both RL and 501st know about it. The 501st is going to have booth there too.
    I have to get with Donna and see what she would like to do.
    Either way I will be there both days except in the morning on Sun when I'm walking in the parks:cool:

    I also should be able to be there for both days, except for the morning of Sunday for the CHOC Walk. But I might need a ride
    to be able to be a part of all these activities, but I know that shouldn't be a problem. :)

    You can PM me your true identities if you prefer.

    Also, will y'all be using Jedi/Sith names? I'm thinking they may be able to do an announcement to introduce our fighters.

    Let me see, so far, i see the following fighters:

    the_black_smudge (Both Days)
    Lizardjedi (Sun, Maybe Sat)
    Robeewankenobee
    Zhi-Don
    JediJenee (Both Days)
    tiepilotillard1701

    copy/paste this list to confirm the days please.

    If you can bring it up in class to the people to let me know their names as soon as they can so I can submit the list to them that'd be a grea help.

    Shall I have them put in the programme "Orange County Saber Academy Presents Insert Name for Duel/Battle Here or Orange County Star Wars Society Presents......

    The booth will be under Inland Empire Fan Force & Orange County Star Wars Society.

    If the Inland Empire guys help do the saber battle then you can infroduce us as a combined fan force.

    If it's only our saber class, then it would be "Orange County Saber Academy"

    We can always decide later.

    the_black_smudge (Both Days)
    Lizardjedi (Sun, Maybe Sat)
    Robeewankenobee
    Zhi-Don [Sat, Maybe Sun] = JEDI
    JediJenee (Both Days)
    tiepilotillard1701

    Everyone sign in which side you will be representing. Looks to me like we have way more JEDI than SITH.
