The Bond sheep game played a big role in me being aware of Daniel Craig's cameo in TFA.

And damn you cnicholls ... so close to a unique for JJ Abrams

Thankfully, nobody is as evil as Bang, so we won't have to have that conversation.
I considered being as evil as Bang, until I realized that I had no clue who the credited director of that POS was.

My ranking is like the consolation movie you end up seeing because the Star Wars movie you really wanted to see sold out

Wow, If I knew I'd be doing this well, I wouldn't have tanked some of my remaining answers...

This reversed shot and the looped Harrison Ford "Boba Fett Boba Fett" were the two fixes I thought needed to be done.

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

I don't want to raise a point of controversy, but I specifically didn't choose the Darth Vader Kid in the Volkswagon commercial because it isn't actually the character of Darth Vader. It's a kid dressed as Darth Vader and having a game of pretend as Darth Vader. The reason I didn't go with it is because the question, to me, specifies the actual character, not a representation of it:

5) What was the best use of a Star Wars character outside of the SW universe? (TV commercial, other TV show, etc.)

I dunno. Maybe it doesn't matter... or maybe five points will make all the difference... or maybe I just wanna screw over cruz, that's possible, too...

But it's a sheep question. So it doesn't really matter if it's "right" or not. The only qualification that was included in the rules was just for vague answers not to be given.

DVR got me there because I have never seen that commercial. The only thing I could think of was the Energizer bunny commercial.

I'm a little surprised that the Robot Chicken and Family Guy specials didn't make an appearance.

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

Before we get to Question #12, I want to add that I thought of at least 12 non-Jedi characters who handle a lightsaber throughout the films. I'll be curious to see how it goes. I almost went with the one I thought would be the most controversial, but went with what I hope is the most obscure.

There will be some controversy ... but I don't think it is what you are expecting. Or maybe it is.

I'm interested to see the full list afterwards!

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

As for story's question about the use of a character, I asked for the best use of a character, not an actual appearance. Any use (parody, commercial, guest appearance, etc.) would have been accepted.

Had you said C-3PO and R2-D2 in Raiders of the Lost Ark or R2-D2 in Star Trek, I would have accepted it.

Question 10
Christmas is almost here … When you were a kid, what SW toy did you want but never get?

First the kids who dug deep for an answer ... or maybe they already had everything else.

I never had this one, but it was on my want list too ...



bunkaroo Shuttle Tydirium 0


This one I don't remember, but it is something different!

Re: Star Wars (Reverse) Sheep: May the Force Be With Ewe

I guess I threw this one out too soon in the last toy question ... There really wasn't much to it, but the sum of all the pieces made it one of the best toys. I especially loved the trash compactor (despite developing an irrational fear of the green plastic dianoga).



The Bus Death Star -2
Shannon Nutt Death Star Playset (From 1978) -2


I'm hoping neither one meant this cardboard atrocity:

I didn't know Phil Collins was an animator on ESB.

I said it before and I'll say it again ... It always makes me sad when it is a lone figure, particularly a main character, that a kid cannot get ...

Kal-El Luke action figure 0
