    Thanks to Lord Mauly Maul's efforts, we have an awesome new banner for TPM board. I hope you guys enjoy the new look!

    Darth Maul, Jake Lloyd, TPM puppet Yoda: Three of the most evil characters ever to hit the silver screen. :p

    Well, LMM deliberately avoided putting Jar Jar on the banner due to his own bias. :p

    Hey you're right. Doesn't the star of TPM deserve a place on the banner? :p

    I think LMM needs to watch the film again. Dooku wasn't in it, and yet he's in the banner...

    But it's still a very nice banner!

    Very Nice...though I think it needs Jar-Jar despite how hated he is

    Um, Dooku's not anywhere in the banner.

    Are we looking at the same banner Harebec?

    I would think so. Isn't anybody else having a Dooku sighting?

    <EDIT>: I'm also using the 1024x768 resolution.

    Harabec is correct, I do see Count Dooku on the banner (I am using the screen resolution 1024x768). A shame Jar Jar Binks isn't on the banner, but you can't have everything, can you? :)

    Dooku can only be seen on that resolution. I figure most people use 800x600 and the banner looks great. Anything more than that shows some shabbyness around the edges that LMM probably didn't think anyone would see.

    Jar Jar is STILL hated after all these years? Give him a break, Maully, sheesh.

    Even though Dooku on it has some nice artistic appeal (forshadowing and what not), I do feel as though he should be replaced by Jar Jar.Like him or hate him, he at least was in the film (which would lead to the 99% 'hate him' factor :p) I'd also replace the two guards on the side with the Niemoidians (as they were the forefront villains of the movie). But hey, I'm hardly ever in here, so just brush what I say aside :)
    But I like how it has the basic approach of the standard JC banner yet has a life and feeling all it's own. In short, I think the character choices were questionable, but that's mere personal choice and it's a fine banner :)

    Sigh...a small little Kenobi...entirely appropriate for TPM

    :(








    :p

    Overall though, it's great banner, heck even Jake Lloyd looked good ;) Well done!

    As many of you have observed, no Jar Jar. You don't like it sue me. :p

    Since the saga is close to being complete, I incorporated Dooku because after all, he was around, just not seen in TPM. I thought it would look cool to have him in the shadows next to Qui-Gon.

    Works for me! :cool:

    There's a cool effect that occurs when you flip back and forth to the AOTC forum. ;)

    After a while you start to see Neil Diamond, Robert Plant, and Ringo.

    Seriously, there's just a subtle transition that happens especially with Yoda.
