Submit Entries for LOC 114: Star Wars Characters
« on: December 20, 2018, 11:26:33 AM »
List of Crap Episode 114




In the 1970s a young film maker named George Lucas sat down and wrote down a few ideas a paper. Through a Herculean effort these ideas would become a movie. This movie would change of the course of cinema history. The name of this movie was of course American Graffiti. Later he would make a movie called Star Wars. One of the things that always interested me about the Star Wars universe was how open it has been to creative input by many talented (and in some cases untalented) writers. George may have created the universe but a number of writers have filled out the universe with their own stories and characters. The universe has been adapted to movies, TV specials, books, video games and many other media formats. You could say it was prototype cinematic universe that is all the rage these days.

THE GENERAL RULES

Submit a list of your top 25 favorite Star Wars characters, with 1 being your very favorite and 25 being your least favorite among that subset of 25.
Entries will be scored by the basic forumla: SCORE = 26 - position
Submit this list to me via Rifftrax Forum private message.
Submission deadline is on January 3rd which is two weeks from now. The deadline may be extended at my discretion. I know the holidays are busy times for some people. I'm also hoping to get at least 10 lists.

THE LIST SPECIFIC RULES

This rules should be very simple for this one. Just submit a list of your favorite Star Wars characters. The only restriction is that the character must have appeared in an officially licensed Star Wars product. This could include but not limited too:
Movies
Books to include the Star Wars Legends Content
Video Games
Comic Books
TV Movies

If there are any questions just ask.

Lists are due on January 3rd. May the Force be with you.

I would also like to give thanks to all those brave souls who hosted the LoCs before mine.

Glad I have a couple weeks off because this is going to require some deep reflection and maybe some source material revisitation...

Just to be clear, stuff that is no longer officially considered canon, as of the sale to Disney, still counts, right?

Correct. I believe that stuff is now considered Star Wars Legends and it still counts.

Ditto. I'll probably be re-watching the movies within the next two weeks, probably with the insight of the Rifftrax crew.

I already sent my list in. I didn't take long to do that since the Star Wars universe is filled with so many great, memorable characters.

By the way the list should be about specific characters, not about a general race.

Speaking of, what does Dirty Harry say to an Ithorian in a bar? "Get the hell out of the way, hammerhead!"

I had this book when I was a kid, fun stuff learning names of background characters etc. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Essential_Guide_to_Characters

Needless to say, there will be muppets on this top 50!

And just like that the riff for Solo gets released. What are the odds?

List sent, I was surprised where some ended up after about 20 minutes of sorting.  I was also surprised I could come up with 30 worthy of sorting since I never got into the extended universe and was relying on only characters from the movies.

Honestly this is the first LoC where I hated leaving people off. Usually on my lists I add a few MST3k or Rifftrax references at the end in an amusing attempt to see if they stick. I have a prototype list so far that's about 40 names and counting.

I have 3 lists so far and I'm hopeful to get a lot more.
