Just how much fun can one man have with one image?
No doubt you've seen it more than a few times, but I couldn't help but feel that it was a mere nudge away from perfection. The following pages chart my obsession with this image, and include contributions from people I met along the way.
It started with the simple insertion of Prince Charles. I mean, who better to rescue a princess?
"Aaaaaaaay! Sit on it, Vader!"
Moving right along, we come to a team that would have no problems infiltrating a military stronghold and making off with a princess. The garbage compactor scene could only be improved by the impromptu construction of a hydraulic battering ram capable of taking out the magnetically-sealed door, the tractor beam and maybe even the main reactor.
"It's 1.12 parsecs to Yavin IV. We've got a droid full of stolen plans, half a pack of death-sticks, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses." This one is obvious - and Carrie Fisher gets to stay right where she is. I really should have given her a bazooka, though.
This is perfect beyond words. With Philo and Orville on the case, we'd get to see a decent fist-fight instead of all this sneaking around. I'm not sure how Clyde would get on with Chewie, though. Wookies can be very territorial.
"You dolt! Do you think that my son would be that stupid that he would bring the secret plans all the way back here?"
Note - the collection has now grown to a point where I have to present it on multiple pages. Click to continue:
