    Sweet baby cheeses, what even IS that!?!? :eek:

    It feels like that's a better option than the what's described on the case above (3rd from last line): "...have the clash with power. two choice of right human faceses" < this sounds grim!!

    Mmmmmh... I'd safely bet he's Darth Plagueis the Wise. But actually I am not so sure.





    Jeeeeez.
    They asked a computer to randomly extract some words from a database, and they printed them here. Easy as hell.
    Example: truck wizard lion Jedi asks force treatment humanize Britney Spears essential now grid padama for all.

    That totally sounds like something bootleggers in third world countries would do.

    I really love this. Some actual thought and effort has gone into creating that image.

    The picture suggests Star Wars without actually being Star Wars, while capturing the essence of the classic pulp space opera images which influenced George Lucas to make Star Wars in the first place. It's like some alternate reality version of Star Wars. And I love the addition of a little robot dog!

    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out this came first, and Star Wars is just a rip-off of that picture!

    Just try to avoid the black-market around big cities like New York or third world nations that's where these are mostly sold and distributed.

    Most counterfeits come from China and are marketed to people living in poor nations or people in places like the US who can't afford official merch.

    The purpose of bootlegs is copyright/trademark infringement and to trick people into thinking their fake products are the real deal that's how the counterfeiting/knock off industry works so it is best to avoid them because your money is going towards organized crime.

    Me personally i only buy bootlegs if they have been previously owned by someone else so my money doesn't go to criminals.

    Erm, 1980 ? The opening crawl already says "Episode V", that cannot be recorded at least before 1999 when Episode I came out.

    Yeah it can. The Empire Strikes Back has always had the Episode V subtitle ever since it was released. The OT had the episode numbers long before the prequels came out.

    "A New Hope" is the only movie to have it's episode number added retrospectively, which first appeared on the theatrical re-release in 1981.

    So yeah, for a long time, the OT was a curious series of movies which started with chapter four!

    The Empire Strikes Back was labelled Episode 5 in the crawler when it came out in 1980 ?
