This is like a Vader one and if you are thinking its the guy in the outfit guess again its Jason Wingreen Smile. Now unless were talking about the holiday special but that is like the prequels we only mention them in the darkest corners of the universe.

Just curious if the guess was right? Anybody want to go back to the beginning and count all the answers? I know this is just for fun, but would be good to see if Jim is stumping us more than we are getting. If not I will work on counting it out next week sometime.

Ok all... it's Monday and even with Irma breathing down my neck, I've been able to summon all my jedi mind tricks to keep her at bay enough to bring you this week's question... my prayers go out to anyone in it's path... may the force be with you all... so here it is!

Question 55:
Which character was originally written as a “green-skinned guy with no nose and large gills"?


Answer:
 

First Correct Answer: Craig T

Well originally it was suppose to run up the east coast and they evacuated the outer banks of SC to be safe then it turned off the tip of the Florida Panhandle, and now it's running up the west coast of Florida, but we're still getting all the wind and rain from the outer edges. Power keeps flickering but it hasn't completely gone out yet. Actually, most businesses and schools are out because of it where I live, but all in all it's just alot of rain and some heavy wind so far. But I'm well prepared, even went into work today. The main part of the storm is suppose to come over us tonight and into tomorrow, so even thou it's raining and windy it's suppose to get worse. By Wednesday it'll be done thou... and right now it's just a catagory 1, and will probably end up being just a Tropical Storm by the end of the day. Just gotta wait it out and see. Thanks for the concern thou! People round here go nuts when a Hurricane is announced and head for the hills. I even saw on the facebook feeds that sharks were sucked up into the storm making it a Sharkticane! LOL

Thanks for letting us know your safe! Hopefully by wednesday the hurricane will be all gone! Our thougts and prayers are still with those affected by the servere weather.

I am glad that you are not as badly affected, Though please continue to wear your safety helmet! those pesky flying sharks can be a bit heavy, a fully grown great white can be 1.1 metric tonnes (2425lbs) near enough the weight of a mini cooper!

Back to your toughie question - have no idea!

However, I can guess can't I?

Steve Sandsweet had a chapter on concept characters in his golden concept to collectable book. I remember the design for the falcon was quoted to be based on an olive and burger, when they were discussing the film over dinner.

Luke and Vader were always humans - I think Darth's mask to hide his face was invented as an idea so that he could jump from spaceship to spaceship and breathe. That's mean Leia had to be human by default.
The droids were always going to be robots - there a concept sketch of them in steve's book; something was said about Star Wars being told through their eyes.
I don't remember about Obi, but in the 30th anniversary figures, Obi was a kind samurai
Chewies was a weird brown thing, I remember him having weird eyes, but I am sure he was concepted to be a sort of ape man not fish head.

That leaves Greedo, Jawas and Han as a possible concept green fish-men

I think greedo is a red green herring, so maybe its the Jawa or the Han?

Definitely not any imperial guy as they enslaved non humans!

Mmm

I have no idea as it could be nearly anyone from the movies. Well I know it's probably a trap but I will say Admiral Akbar Smile.

Greedo does seem too obvious but I'll say Greedo because I have a vintage ad where he's listed as 'Green Greedo'. alien

Lol - can I do 50:50 split on Jawa and Han? ...

* Jawas, they could evolved from the original script where they were originally bottom feeding fish scavaging for shite on the seabed ( maybe the dune sea was a real sea in the original script)

* Han and Greedo are the only ones I can't say anything about, but you made a point of saying green, so I am ruling greedo out. Hans my bet on Black chip

Greetings all you happy campers... it's Monday and you all know what that means... it's time for a new trivia question.  I spent all weekend watching the new Adywan edit of Empire Strikes Back and I gotta say, WOW... the Hoth battle with all the AT-STs thrown in it look incredible!  Lucas should have hired this guy to do the Special Editions!  Anyway, here's  this week's question...

Question 56:
What was the name of the tail gunner that made the first tow-cable shot in Empire Strikes Back?  Bonus points if you can name the pilot of the snowspeeder!


Answer:
 

First Correct Answer: TheSchwartz

Pilot was Wedge Antilles.

Aye! Concur with TheSwartz! It was Wes Janson!

Off-piste:

Did you that Wes was played by Ian Liston who at the same time played the At-At driver. So technically speaking during the same scene he attacks himself! I met him in Celebration Europe where he told me that story and I got a double photo with the AT-AT driver and Wes Janson signed from him. He was a really nice guy to talk to.

It's been to long since I watched empire I guess. For some reason I was thinking the guy named "dak" (or a similar sounding name) was the one who shot the first tow cable.
