All I implied really is that Boba's death was ridiculous
the only reason he survived was his popularity with Star Wars fans/Authors. Boba is like my 2 or 3 favorite character, but even I think his survival was a little odd. I like how his friendships with all these random bounty hunters came out of nowhere.

like when Boba was a kid Aurra Sing took care of him? Does anyone else think it's weird that she would be training her future competition?

It doesn't even make sense that he survived, looking at a sarlacc's body and what they do he shouldn't have gotten out anyway.

Not to mention he blew himself out of the sarlacc with the rocket on his jetpack. I would really love to see Hollywood make this into a movie. I bet they could make better sense out of it than we could. Or maybe they could just make it look like an "Oh, duh!" moment.

Stormtroopers are inaccurate in the movies because they were under orders.

1. In ANH they are let go so that the Empire can find the rebel base on Yavin IV

2. In ESB they are let go so that the Executor can capture the Falcon, thus capturing the recently rescued Luke Skywalker.

Now on endor they have no special orders, which is why we see Leia get injured and R2 get hit. But thats just my view.
didn't we have this discusion before?


1. that only applies AFTER they escaped into the garbage shoot.

2. That's pushing it as you assume they would find luke and rescue him. Of course they are missing at Leia and Chewbaca while Luke is fighting Vader


On Endor Leia, R2 and the rest are standing in front of a wall with 0 cover. The Stormtroopers have good cover and are directly in front of them and can't hit them.



Also at the Beginning of ANH C3PO and R2D2 slowly walk across the hallway whiile 4 or 5 stormtroopers MISS.


yeah stormtroopers can't hit anything.

oh god not this again.

Ok to quick catch you up Boba Fett died.

George Lucas said he died, The movie shows him falling into the pit, The Script says he died and the book says he died.


Tales from the Bounty Hunter has the short story that says he crawled out. It came out before the Current version of the Canon system which says anything that contradicts G-Canon is not canon. So that contradicts G-Canon therefore it is not canon.

No we didn't

1. Ya still though they did have orders.

2. Its not assuming, Vader isn't aloud to see into the future now? Besides he did say "did your technicians disable the hyperdrive?" meaning he more then likely planned ahead incase Luke didn't come with him and turn over to the darkside.

3. Ya Leia and R2 get hit.

I can give you the new hope one, but the others seem sound.

1. yeah but not until after this scene

2. Nothing in the movies indicate that he can see in the future. In the Prequels he only gets a very vauge vission of padme. But I could have sworn that was the Emperor doing that.

3. yeah but if you watch the scene the Storm Troopers have some pretty awful misses.

Palpatine could see into the future, but doesn't indicate that he does so does that mean he can't?

Well those guys were pretty old, they probably were pushing into their early/late 60's by ROTJ maybe even older(if that was the 501st on endor.)
