    I believe that this important plot point from the OT has not been resolved yet. Hopefully it will be in the next film..

    If we only knew the POWER of the converters.

    I believe the plot revolves around Darth Plagueis transferring his essence into a power converter. Voice of Plagueis is rumored to be an eerie mix of archival casting tapes of thousands of rejected kid actors who auditioned for Anakin's role in TPM.

    There are rumors of Adam Sandler playing a Jedi who survived the Order 66, but the shock has left him in a permanent state of a degenerate man-child.

    I meant it as an unresolved plotline that WE the audience never got closure to. I was riffing off of the first comment. :)

    Luke's inability to get his power converters is the catalyst for his turn to the dark side. He will of course be apprenticed to darth Plagueis, who was Yoda the whole time.

    Not likely, the Tashi station went out of busines after the subprime housing and economic collapse on Tattoine...

    Yeah, and the galaxy can thank Emperor Palpatine for that. The bankster bailout bankrupted the Empire . . .

    Blast! I can't think of anything funny to write . . .

    If the power converters are CGI my life will be ruined forever.

    Can you imagine the mechandising on replica power converters if they did include them somehow.
    Every SW fan worth his\her salt would buy them.

    Yeah, especially if its something you could customize your car with. I'd be all over that.
    Ironically, I just watched the Robot Chicken special last night with that bit. LOL

    When Luke finally dies, he's holding power converters. And he is content.

    I would be too if they were the power converters from that clip. That is real and not the plastic kind with only the 5 points of articulation.

    Maybe as a Life Day present. "Oh, you got me power converters!"

    Turns out Plagueis was the inventor of power convertors, and personally responsible for the establishment of the Tosche Station. It was all part of his master plan. It'll all be covered in the book "Darth Plagueis Episode II: The Return of Forced Unnecessary Background Stories" (FUBS™)

    Tragically Luke never gets his power converters but his son Ben does and he saves the galaxy after harnessing their power and defeating their creator, Plagueis. :D

    But I really wish they come and resolve this major plot point. Who knows how Luke's life would have been if he picked up his power converters like he wanted to?
