A Message For Jabba by JakeMurray A Message For Jabba by JakeMurray
For "Star Wars: The Card Game" published by Fantasy Flight Games. It doesn't really matter who shot first - Han Solo is the only one who leaves the table.

I have two things to say;

This: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu-TZp… 

And this quote from Lucas: "what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo [who seemed to be the one who shot first in the original] to be a cold-blooded killer," 

At 9 years old I knew Solo wasn't a cold blooded killer.  A ruthless bounty hunter had the drop on him and had just said lets step outside so I can kill you.  Of course Han shot first otherwise he would be dead.  If a 9 year old can figure out the morals of the situation I don't think Lucas needs to be so arrogant and dishonest about it.  Plus he didn't need to insult the people who made his rich in the first place by saying they wanted Solo to be a "cold blooded killer".  Defending yourself from certain death is not cold blooded.  But that's modern Hollywood for you.

I read an article that sadly I can not find again that called Star Wars a happy accident  - because in the first two shows Lucas was still listening to others.  After Lucas got full control we ended up with Ewoks, JarJar and Jake Loyd (who I think suffered from bad directing more than bad acting).  Not to mention the Lady Shaver communicator Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon used.

Oh - and BTW - great picture :)

Haha I can definitely sympathize with the argument against Lucas's changes and agree with you that even children can understand that Han was clearly acting out of self-defense and doesn't just go around bars shooting people. But I guess that's why I never really cared that much about the change - because no matter who shot first, it really DIDN'T change how I saw the character. If anything the change just tries (albeit somewhat sloppily) to add an additional level of badassery to Han's character because (if you look closely) he actually does dodge Greedo's shot at the same time he fires back. Greedo doesn't miss - Han is just apparently really good at laser dodge ball. So my perception of Han goes from "Oh he's a man who just does what he has to do" to "Oh he's a man who just does what he has to do a little more stylishly". Now I do prefer the original version for the reasons that you said. But I just can't find it in me to be all that upset about the change.

Now the Blu-Ray changes.....those upset me lol.

I think any fan can agree that whoever shot first the outcome would be the same and if Han didn't shoot tor if he did hen Greedo would have shot either way or whatever happened lol. It all ends the same.

This is just too awesome, though it bugs me that Greedo's name has been misspelled so much by the folk commenting on this, and that old pirate Han shot first, we all saw it happen back before Lucas lost his mind and decided to crap on his own franchise with those special additions!!Heart

Han didn't shoot first. There were lots of people doing lots of shooting before Han was even born.

Really nice piece. I just have a couple little nitpicks about the blaster bolt. First, at first glance it looks like a bit too much like a lightsaber. Second, it's at a slightly different angle than the blaster itself, which isn't a huge deal but it's one of those things you can't un-notice. Oh well. No biggie.

I'm curious: How much did you worry about matching up with the pose in the film? I'd go back and check for myself, but I have the special DVD "Han ducked out of the way" edition. I like the idea here; Han's not only literally shooting from the hip, but the whole pose just makes him look so lazy. It's so smug. "Yeah, I'm gonna kill you now without even bothering to move my arm." Great stuff.

Thanks! Yeah I tried to match the pose as much as possible, though the angle makes it impossible to show his left leg propped up on the table the way it is in the movie.

It really doesn't matter who shot first.

Usually, the one with the better aim is the one standing afterwards.
