Wow, even I have to admit when I saw this Christmas special a long time ago in a household far, far away even I wasn’t impressed. I was only a kid when it aired and I can honestly say, “WOW” has my taste in entertainment ever changed! Princess Leia is singing!
This has got to be the corniest shows I think I have seen in decades and realize that the only reason I watched it was because it was Star Wars. There are a few cameos from the Droids, Han and Luke and even the Cantina band but it’s really poorly done. If there was ever any doubt, people should really not watch this video if they haven’t already seen Star Wars and if they have, have an open mind. Even George Lucas admits its one of those things he wish he could forget and prays that every last copied gets destroyed.
All I can say is WOW…. now that’s worse than Episode 1 the Phantom Menace!
It’s up for sale if you want it….but you’ll have to shell out at least $200,000 USD in order to make it a part of your collection. Just remember that because of it’s selling price doesn’t mean it actually shoots lasers, although that would be kinda cool!!!
Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster is up for auction on Dec.21, 2013. Apparently it’s the one used in Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI Return of the Jedi. They are saying it’s not the same prop gun that blasted poor Greedo in the Cantina in Episode IV A New Hope. Clearly this is a weapon that can aim itself! Rumour has it that it may also be the same prop gun that Luke Skywalker uses in Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
Regardless, it’s a piece of movie history that will most likely go for a lot more than the starting price… I wonder if Harrison Ford might bid on it or maybe that’s why it’s not the original DL-44 from A New Hope…maybe he kept that one…hmmm maybe someone should ask him!
