Best Star Wars Character?

Thu Jan 01, 2004 3:12 am

I already know the answer to this question, so I won't bother chiming in. Who do you think was the most bad-ass Star Wars Character? You can pic from the old trilogy and the new trilogy (although why you'd want to is beyond me).

Tom Bombadil!

Oh wait...

Boba Fett.

The new trilogy has tarnished the old one though. Thanks Lucas.

A correct response from the gentleman with the "Wing Commander" handle!

Boba Fett.

Are you serious?  Nuts

A cool-looking character, yes...but he got run off the SW universe by Han Solo bumping into him for Chrissake! Other than that, all he did was stand around and look menacing.

I think Darth Vader will always stand out as the best SW character of all.

Wedge Antilles. The only starfighter pilot other than Luke to survive all 3 films, commander of Rogue Squadron, and one cool pilot.

Yeah, this is good for the star wars and also, it is coming soon in May 2005 with the new movie Star Wars III. As you can see with Anakin Skywalker and he became with Darth Vader in the movie and I can't really wait to see with the first of kind with the movie.

Boba Fett hands down! However, coming in a very close, and I mean VERY close second would be this Bad Ass!...



Darth Maul was awesome in TPM. Mr. Lucas should write a prequel to episode 1 with more DM! That would be SAAAHWEET!

I'll readily agree that Maul was a badass, what with his lightstaff...but we're also forgetting an equally badass light-sider. The man who pimps it with a purple-bladed lightsaber with "BMF" engraved on it.

All the characters are cool when talking about the old trilogy, given the choice to be one my pick would be Han Solo and so I dub him my favourite one.

p.s. Boba Fett somehow gets out of that thing han solo bumbed him into later on if you read the books, which by the way are great...the han solo trilogy by A.C Crispin books are a must read for any star wars fan.
