    After seeing much footage between Yoda, and Sidious fighting, and Obi Wan Fighting Vader, one wonders if the YvS duel will take the thunder away from the OvV duel,Not all, but some?


    WHo here thinks this is possible, I have to admit it looks Brillant.

    No, No it won't


    how dare you question the "Duel".

    How can you call yourself a starwars fan?




    I demand you turn in your resignation for such blasphemy.

    I think "The Duel" should be Sidious and Yoda, but not because it looks uber-leet-awesome-dude, because its the Dark Lord of the Sith versus the best Jedi in the galaxy... Obi-Wan and Anakin are both mid-ranked... BUT, based on the story which is in fact about Anakin, "The Duel" should include him, thus, Obi-Wan vs Vader is known as "The Duel".

    there should be nothing on this earth greater than 'the duel' Obi-wan Vs DARTH Vader. [face_shame_on_you]

    No I don't think it will. Yoda and Sidious, no matter how great it is going to be, will not take The Duel's thunder for the sheer fact that the Obi-Wan vs. Vader is the most important of any duel because it decides the fate of the Jedi, the twins, the galaxy, and the Chosen One. And its going to be more emotional and personal, unlike the Yoda vs. Sidious duel.

    I think both duels will kick major ass.

    "The Duel" is obvious...

    "Revenge of the Sith" verses "War of the Worlds".

    I don't think so. We've been waiting for The Duel ever since we read in the ROTJ novelization about Obi Wan and Anakin fighting. Sure the Yoda vs. Palpatine fight will be exciting but there will be much more emotion involved in The Duel.

    The duel will forever be linked with Vader vs Obi-wan. Yoda vs Sidious is just a duel between Jedi and Sith. The other is between two former friends turned enemies. Brothers. Father figure to son figure.

    [face_shame_on_you] Ani Vs. Obi has been talked about since 77. Yoda VS. Sidious was questioned until last year. [face_shame_on_you]

    Anakin v Obi is the ultimate saber fight

    Yoda v Sids is the ultimate force battle

    So you get 2 ultimate fights techinically, but the Sids/Yoda is far shorter

    To be honest, without any of us having seen the movie yet, it's impossible to tell. The Anakin/Obi-Wan duel could be lackluster while the Sidious/Yoda steals the show. We just don't know.....

    Obi vs Anakin will be the duel for me, both emotionally and visually.

    No, THE DUEL always has been and always will be Obi vs Vader. Yoda v Sids will not have the same dramatic effect to it as the Obi vs Vader duel.

    The Duel is something that people have been waiting for for 28 years, before Yoda and Sidious even existed.

    "The Duel" is what we have talked about since '77... It has been legendary since that time and we knew that ONE DAY Lucas would show it to us.

    That time is nearly here and it rightly deserves its name.

    Vader vs Obi-Wan will rock and Yoda vs Palpatine will rock just as much.

    Why cant we just enjoy two completely different duels?

    "The Duel" is referenced in Spaceballs:

    "At Last, we meet again, for the first time, for the last time..."

    Every other duel is already pwned.

    The look in Anakin's eyes as he and obi wan stare each other down while standing on a lava platform inches away from death literally says to me, "This is no regular old action sequence. Now bend over and prepare to be Own3d"

    Well since we're "renaming" fights here

    why dont we just Call "The Duel" : "Compassion vs. Hatred:

    and the Yoda vs. Sidious fight can be called "The Light vs. The Dark"

    b/c thats what they really are in essence

    Yoda v. Palps might be flashier, in terms of the CGI, but Obi-Wan v. Anakin will be the most emotionally draining, because ultimately Obi-Wan and Anakin/Vader are the only (human) characters to appear in all six films, and the saga is ultimately about Anakin.

    What's Mace verses Sidious then?

    Shaft verses later-to-be-thrown-down-a-shaft?

    I have to say that the Yoda/Sideous duel has me much more excited than the Anakin/Obi-Wan duel.
