    "Contest: The Greatest Moments
    (Vote for your fav moment and Win R2D2 projector clock by M&M.. I like that!) "


    Just saw the prizes:
    1) Limited edition R2D2 projector clock by M&M
    2) An exclusive pair to SW EP3 Charity Premiere Ticket
    3) Star Wars movie posters and comic books


    Haha missed the fine print: Charity Premiere Ticket, some more, a pair!

    Call 1900-914-0801 (Each call costs 20 Cents). Voting ends Saturday 11 pm.

    The favourite moments:
    Moment 1: The Swing to Freedom (Ep IV: ROTJ)
    Who can forget Princess Leia in her comely bikini swinging to safety with her rescuer, Luke Skywalker, from Jabba's sail barge to a skiff.

    Moment 2: The Duel of Fates (Ep I: TPM)
    Some say the pod race scene was the best thing about the Phantom Menace, but many more will agree that Sith Lord Darth Maul's battle with Qui-Gon jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi amounts to one of the best fight scenes in Star Wars history.

    Moment 3: The Declaration of Love (Ep V: ESB)
    Arguably the most memorable dialogue the galaxy's ever heard happens when Han Solo was about to be dropped into the carbon freezing chamber.

    His 'death' imminent, Princess Leia expresses her feelings with "I love you". Han Solo's response? "I know"


    Moment 4: Yoda Fights (Ep II: AOTC)
    Thanks to the wonders of computer graphics, we finally see 900-year-old Yoda show some of his Jedi moves.

    The old man drops his walking stick, pulls out his lightsaber and shows Count Dooku that he is no pushover - making this one of the most anticipated moments ever in Star Wars


    Moment 5: I Am Your Father (Ep V: ESB)
    One of the most dramatic scenes in the Star Wars series must surely be when, in effort to lure Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side, Darth Vader drops a bombshell by telling the jedi: "I am your father." Yes, daddy's the baddie.

    Moment 6: The Trench Run (Ep IV: ANH)
    The scene where Darth Vader chases Luke Skywalker down a narrow canyon in his TIE figther - only to have the young Jedi use the Force to destroy the Death Star - goes down in history as possibly the best deep-space battle recorded on film.


    Note: I am promoting the 1900 call but I believe not all of you read the New Paper....

    Buy me a drink if you do win.. for my effort? ;)

    Those 6 moments you wrote are from the New Paper? I have the paper myself but I'm not reading it yet for fear of spoilers.

    Hey, InCogNiToFan, thanks for all the info. Now I can selectively read the paper...avoiding the you-know-whats. Wonder which moment people will vote for in the contest? I'm thinking moment #5--"I am your Father..."

    Well, I voted for both the Yoda fight, and Vader's I am your father. I don't really feel lucky though.

    I dunno if this counts, but the FOXTROT (I think) comic strip in Life nowadays are StarWars related. Humor, average though.

    The Life section comes in two covers - one with Anakin as a Jedi and the other as a hooded Sith apprentice. If you mail in both covers by noon today you stand to win limited edition T-shirts.
