Well this isn't really a technical goof-up but I always got a kick out of this scene in ROTJ:

OK... watching ESB right now....
Chewie gets thrown into a cell and they give him C-3PO's parts? Why?
Couldn't that provide Chewie with an upper hand in which he could use to escape?
Its not like they gave him a 150 piece puzzle to pass the time... they gave him a freakin robot?  Rolling Eyes

Very Happy
cheers!

@ least it wasn't the Blu Ray version with Vader saying "No.. No... Noooo!" as he decides to kill his boss. Laughing

Surely Luke would be like... Hey who the fuck is that? Not like he ever new what his dad looked like when he was young, and why more to the point?
 
Well George claims that it was Anakin's ghost from before he turned to the Dark Side, back to when he was good, didn't he just turn good again by killing the Emperor and saving his son??? Also the young ghost is Episode III Anakin, you know, the kid killing, clearly on the dark side path one  Razz

Me too, and I started it! My first post was blown out quicker than an X-Wing's escape pod! which they actually have by the way! Shame they never put them in the other ships, or maybe they did but the rebels just preferred to go down with there ships rather than live on to fight the couse! Just that despite seeing numerous stricken ships through out the films no one ever bothers to eject? Maybe Genius George was limited by the technology at the time, but then again no one ejects in the prequel trilogies either, unless you count that guy from the ARC-170 at the beginning of Episode III, but kind of just looks more like he's missing his pod  Razz   :cool laugh:

One A-Wing taking out The Executor?  Seriously?!!!



You almost start to think that the engineers of the Empire were ordered to build in Achilles' heel design flaws.....

...AT ATs being destroyed by one shot, Super Star Destroyers taken down by one collision, Death Stars being blown to pieces by one single proton torpedo....

For years the A-Wing taking out The Executor has bugged me. On the one hand I get it. Shields were taken out and he blasted the bridge in his last ditch death middle finger to the Empire. Very heroic. But you'd think on a ship that's 19,000 meters long would have a secondary command center somewhere.

It was most likely below the main bridge the imperial ship designers are not to swift. Like hey they blew up the first death star by hitting a 2 meter wide whole so they made the new one which had a hole big enough to fly the falcon through to blow it up lol

how about when the gang is blasting their way out of Mos Eisley, all the good guy's blasters are knocking huge chunks off the walls and ceiling as they miss their targets, but when they hit the Stormies, the Stormies just basically go "ouch" and die. Neutral
Most of the damage from the blasters in Ep. IV seem to do that from both the good guys and baddies. Super powerful on non-live objects.
Its like the blasters are meant to obliterate concrete and space-metal, but just barely harm flesh.  unsure 

The armor can absorb the blast, concrete can't.

And my nerd card for 2014 is renewed. Glad I got it out of the way early Smile

I bet George had thought ahead about this long before he'd even written the scripts... or, even if he hadn't, some uber-geek has written like a 10 page article over on Wookiepedia explaining the complexities of Droid anatomy & their nervous systems. Rolling Eyes

I seem to recall reading, in the 70's film adaptation novel, that C-3PO had olfactory sensors so he could 'smell'.. I think it refers to him turning it off when Ben was cremating the Jawa's.. (it's been well over a decade since I read it, so could be wrong) so droids having some rudimentary kind of pain receptors could be feasible, why else would Artoo scream when he gets shot?

 affraid Jeez.. I'm starting to take this all far too seriously, it's just a fantasy movie aimed primarily@ 12 year olds

I completely forgot about artoo's scream lol it would make sense though I forgot we do have that technology now for prosthetics so people can feel hot/cold etc. so It does make sense that a droid could feel pain damn I think it is true that George really did do lots of thinking to make it as believable as possible from what I read about him from way back when Smile. I did however like the way he talked about the good/dark side of the force though you get mad your evil like the way he was referring to Anakin.
