    I wasn't talking about The SW-Equivalent of the Alien Guy from The History Channel.[face_not_talking]
    Notice how he started wearing that when Lux did?:p

    Wasn't there one interview where they had to censor whatever logo was on the hat? Wonder if that was for legal reasons or...something else?

    Dude, "laugh at" is not spelled D-I-S-R-E-G-A-R-D.

    This probably doesn't even deserve acknowledgement, but for the heck of it: they aren't going to copy a character and re-name them. They'll either keep the EU or trash it and do something completely different. This is probably the dumbest rumor yet.

    But no doubt those regular posters in the Ep VII forum will be crowing that this proves them right about how the EU will be destroyed. {EDIT - checked, YEP}



    As for the Morriband vs. Korriban rumor - M is right below K on the keyboard, so I'm personally suspecting that that's a typographical error until further notice. Sure, it might be an all new planet, but we shall see.

    That's what I find most surprising. Every rumor is supposedly the gospel truth. Regardless of how little sense they make.

    LOL

    The best part of that poster meme is that it uses the Tudor crown -- Georgr VI was the last to use it because Elizabeth II thought it was too imperialist.

    You forgot "Sidious = Palpatine"

    Oh. Wait.

    I don't think something as sensible as this had ever been rumoured.

    The NEGC had two separate entries! They were clearly clones!

    The clone must have been killed off sometime in between AOTC and ROTS.

    There was a running debate in the movie forums betwee TPM and ROTS where people refused to believe that Sidious and Palpatine were the same person. They had al sorts of insane theories and said there was no proof. Palpatine was just too nice to be the evil Sith Lord.

    Never mind that Sidious dressed exactly like that guy from ROTJ named Emperor palpatine. NEGTC even tried to keep up the charade by giving then separate bios.

    I'd ask how stupid LFL thinks we are, but it turns out that we actually are that stupid.

    The basis for the idea that Palpatine isn't Sidious was that Palpatine being Sidious was too obvious. They were claiming that in ROTS, Sidious would kill his clone Palpatine and assume his identity.

    Sidious and Maul broke into Palpatine's apartment when he sent Maul to Tatooine.

    And Sidious stole Lorn Pavan's datacron from Palpatine's hands while he was sipping some juri juice.

    I hereby dispute this. [face_not_talking]

    SuperShadow was a close friend of George Lucas, my good sir, and the honest Mr Shadow says that it was in the script. Lucas clearly changed the plotline between TPM and drafting ROTS.

    You have provided no documented evidence to support your claims, and so I therefore find SuperShadow a far more reliable source than you, good sir, and kindly request you to cease with peddling your misinformed statements and outright lies. [face_shame_on_you]

    Was anyone really at all surprised that Palpatine was Sidious? (being serious for a minute)

    I've always thought that that was perhaps the most obvious thing from the prequels from the first minutes of Episode I....

    I thought there was a better chance we'd find out that Anakin wasn't really Darth Vader then we would of that Palpatine wasn't really Sidious. I think Lucas was/is too attached to the characters he created to throw some crazy loop hole like that out there. Some writers/directors like to throw audiences for a loop but I don't think Lucas is one of them (at least not until years after the story has already been out and he wants to change who shot first).

    wait, that was supposed to be a secret? How could anyone not know that after watching like 10 minutes of TPM?
