Hey arohk, your right tuskens do scare easy but i better stick up for them! Other easy startlers- wolfs, lions and hyenas but i wouldn't want to startle a whole pack lol! thats where there power is in my eyes plus the fact they are virtually insane!!!

This what i think of when you say Trandoshan lol!



Love that film!!

The tuskans are a decent group, but the only fights we actually see them in are when they ambush Luke and get scared away by a loud noise in the original trilogy and if you want to count the pre trilogy we see Anakin beat them all when he goes to rescue his mom. The trandoshans we don't see at all, but bossk looks awesome and reptiles are unpredictable. It was between these two for me, but ultimately I think the trandoshans have more lethal appearance and they have teeth and claws so they have built in weaponry (for a battle this is better in my mind).

Matt always makes good combos. The more I get into them the more detailed I try to get. The last one I wrote a decent amount. I enjoy these quite a bit.

I think you should, the last read was excellent so well written, it was so in depth I felt like I was there.
I will have a go as well but mine will sound like a five year olds story lol.

Matt has a wonderful mind very creative!!

I'd have to go for Trandoshans.

Claws like a cat! Bossks teeth always freaked me out as a kid, tho I wouldn't want to meet a Sand Person in a dark alley!

Amanaman - without his staff of skulls, my other half always said he looked cute, like a Green and Yellow Orangutan - those l-o-n-g arms ...

Missed this post.  Matt always chooses the opponent.  Last round we got bounty hunters.  This round who knows.  He always makes interesting choices.

Hope we don't end up with a trandoshan or tusken vs a tribble. lol!

Choose one:

A) Hoth:


B) Close quarter combat inside the Deathstar corridors:


C) Kashyyyk:


As a side note, voting is currently close between:

Trandoshan - 4

Tusken Raiders - 3

I'm voting for Tusken Raiders!

1 more vote to break the tie!

I vote Death Star. Cold effects lizards making them slow so trandoshan would be bad in cold. Tuskens are hot climate people so also doubt they would be good in cold. We just had a jungle with endor so I think Death Star is best option here.

We need one more vote to decide tusken or trandoshan so someone step up and vote on that.
