Well ok maybe not exactly like MacGyver, but someone like him is probably what I am suggesting for a character.

Yes, and I also know a thing or two about Canon. My point is that, like others have said, a Star Wars MacGyver doesn't exist. The closest you can come is what I listed.

So thats why they make an actual Macgyver like character. Not as cheesy, but someone pretty close.

Actually that was Lando that turned that hunk of junk into what it is. Han just won it in a card game.

I'd say Han and Chewie...the ability to keep their ship in one piece was nothign close to a miracle.

not really... most of the real nice modifications were done after Lando lost it... tho technically the nicest one (the hyperdrive) wasn't done by either Lando or Han... Han paid someone to do it


oh and I hate Macgyver...

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

I'm kind of glad there isn't a Macgyver character....mostly because Star Wars has ENOUGH knockoff characters in the EU as is.
