That does make sense, I think they are talking about the Sten gun.

Yay!

Did anyone go to Celebration Europe in 2007??? In the collector panels, the propstore of london had the gun on show.

I remember it being very heavy!

I hate to say this but the question was "What Star Wars props were built from British Sterling L2A3 SMG's?" But I have to correct this so you guys know just in case it comes up. I you look at both both the DH-17 and the E-11 you will see they areboth made from a Sterling SMG.

In A New Hope the DH-17 was a cast of a Sterling but in ESB they were fully functional weapons.

If you look at both you will see they are the same aside from the DH-17 forward part.

Here is a link to a movie weapons page. http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Star_Wars:_The_Original_Trilogy#BlasTech_DH-17_Blaster_Pistol

Just want people to know that not just the E-11 was made from the Sterling.

Well it's Monday and you all know what that means... it's time for a new question of the week.  Been a rough weekend for me so I'll skip all the pleasentries and remind everyone about the rules... no cheating by using the internet for your answers, that includes searching for keywords or clarifications or watching movie clips on youtube!  So without further ado... here's this week's question...

Question 79:
What badge signifies a Rebel General?


Answer:
 

First Correct Answer: TheSchwartz

Its a square badge with 5 dots arranged in an "X" shape and resembles packaging found commonly in throat lozenges.

5 Red dots in an X pattern on a cloth or metal background. If it matter color does make a difference as their is Army and Navy ranks same as the Empire.

5 Strepsils - half used so they are sticky and stuck on the General's attire in the formation as illustrated by my little blushing helpers:

Well done Craig! I believe strepsils are the UK version of "Cepacol" throat lozenges.

Yeah! That's them! Once tacky and stuck to something, nothing short of dynamite will remove them!

I'm late to the party for change, but maybe I get a quarter of a point for the illustrative part!

We have a nasty snow weather warning for Scotland - so stocked-up and the heating on full. Could be a snow day off work tomorrow ...

I did hear about your approaching winter weather (I order Scotch from Master of Malt) and they said they may have to close.

Stay safe and warm and May the force be with you!

Thanks bud!

We are set-up here. The little guy is fast asleep, and my lead crystal decanters are fully laden with new supplies of Dalwhinnie & Glenrothes.

Tip of the glass to you! cheers

I am assuming you got the 5 red dot thing from general dodonna (think that is the name) but I believe that he had the wrong insignia on or maybe a general of certain troop type is different than that of others? I mean we have general madine who has a completly different insignia which one could argue then that madine had the wrong one, except lando was promoted to general and given the exact same insignia as the one madine wears.

Hey Bryan,

I forgot about lando and madine... is this because they’re a part of the Navy as opposed to army ground troops. Different uniforms. Maybe they had to use bright strepsel dots at hoth, because of the low visability during snow storms.

I still can’t believe Kenner managed to persuade Lucus to make madine wear a fake beard, so their action figure was correct. His prop beard was on show in Celebration Europe collecting panel.

Happy Monday all you fellow Star Wars trivia buffs out there and what a wonderful week it is.  This week marks my 51st anniversary of orbiting the giant gas burning ball in our solar system.  And this week I think I'll throw out a tuffy just to see if you guys really know your stuff!  Remember the rules, no cheating by using the internet to find your answers!  You can go to the library and look at these things that are an analog rectangular format made of pressed wood pulp with squid secretions on them, I think they are called books!  But I could be wrong!  Without further ado... here's this weeks brain teaser!

Question 80:
Before Decipher INC lost the license to print Star Wars cards in 2001, they released a card revealing we’ve actually already have seen a scruffy looking nerf herder — a guy who herded nerfs — on screen. What was the character’s name?  (Bonus points if you can name the scene he's in!)


Answer:
 

First Correct Answer: NO ONE
