Toy Story 3 better than the OT.....my goodness...
that's not even debatable. Toy Story 3 managed to create more emotion in it's scenes then even Empire. The scene where Han is lowered into the carbonite chamber is great but the incinerator scene is far more dramatic and gripping.

Like I said Lots o is far more menacing villain then Emperor palapentine could ever hope to be.

It really is sad when a stuffed bear is a more intimidating villain than an evil emperor with god-like amounts of magical lightning powers.

I will give you this, though: the incinerator scene was intense. But no way any pink stuffed bear could compare with Palpatine.

Great movie.

But Star Wars is just on a whole other level.

And no, there is no way on the planet that Lotzo-hugging-bear is more menacing then Palpatine. You could argue that Toy Story 3 is a better movie, but Star Wars is more intense and dramatic. Period.

stuffed bear who is a corrupt politician who keeps in control through fear and intimidation and is willing murder others to hold on to his power.

He is a more realistic and believable villain then The Emperor who is just an old man who can use magic.

It's the same reason why a vast majority of people think that Delorus Umbridge is a scarier villain then Lord Voldemort.

Vader is more intimidating villian then Lots o but not the emperor.

You kinda described the Emperor in your attempt to make the bear a better villain. Palpatine did all of those things and more. Plus, he did many of his evil deeds for fun.

i know i did that was the point. They have the same backstory but Lots o is a much more intidmidating villian as he is more human.
