#1: Han Solo
229 points
10 of 10 lists. Highest Rank: #1 Johnny Unusual and Charles Castle

Wow. 229 points on 10 lists. Not only was he on every list, but he averages 23 points, which means he was in or near the top 3 on every list. Nothing cooler than a space scoundrel. Was that even a thing before Star Wars?

Honorable Mention: The Music of John Williams

After seeing Star Wars in 77 I asked my parents if they could get me the sound track. 

They came back from shopping one day with the disco version....  :speechless: :gouge:



That piece of junk was returned and eventually I got the real soundtrack.

I don't think so, he was the first in a long line of scoundrels. Out of curiosity Pak why did you leave Darth Revan off your list?

Yeah the music of Meco is really good. I highly recommend their 15 minute mix of all their tunes from Star Wars. I take it you're not big on Disco Marty?

Sigh. I have a three word response to that act of mindless destruction: The Bee Gees. Also, I find it very hypocritical that people would willfully destroy Disco records, but in the meantime society in generally openly approves of things like Gangsta rap.

(Sorry for going off topic guys)

That video is about an event from 1979, about a decade before gangsta rap.  I guess you were not around in the 70s to take part in the disco vs. rock wars?   ???   If the internet was around back then I can't imagine the carnage.   >:D  To quote some old Klingons "It would have been glorious".  ;D

Is there widespread approval of gangsta rap?  Don't ask me, I hate rap even more than disco, I have fairly wide musical tastes, classical, pop, rock, blues, jazz, etc, but can't stand those 2 forms of music.

I haven't seen any of the Disney Star Wars films. Not that I don't plan to eventually see them, but since the series is no longer written or sanctioned by Lucas, and therefore no longer part of the original canon,  there is no longer an urgency to see any new Star Wars film. They are just more big budget visual effects films that may or may not have a good plot.   So my picks come from the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy, with the two Ewok telefilms and Holiday Special characters also under consideration ( but ultimately rejected. ) Haven't gotten around to seeing any of the animated SW stuff, and very little of anything else from the SW expanded universe, so the characters on my list are just from the live action films.

#1 Darth Vader
#2 Yoda
#3 Han Solo
#4 Obi Wan Kenobi
#5 Luke Skywalker
#6 Emperor Palpatine
#7 Princes Leia
#8 Lando Calrissian
#9 Chewbacca
#10 Admiral Ackbar
#11 C3P0
#12 Elan Sleazebaggano 
#13 Count Dooku
#14 Darth Maul
#15 Boba Fett 
#16 R2D2
#17 Jabba The Hutt
#18 Greedo
#19 Max Rebo
#20 Grand Moff Tarkin
#21 Ponda Baba 
#22 Mace Windu
#23 Figrin D'an
#24 Wedge
#25 Nien Nunb  

Too bad there was no side list for the worst Star Wars characters, so we would have a place to shove Jar Jar Binks and Chef Gormaanda.

Yeah I was born in 78' so I didn't know or didn't pay much attention to that kind of thing back then. My parents took me to see Star Wars when I was 18 months old and I of course was obsessed with it then and now.

Revan is awesome, but because of the... Unique way you get to know the character, I feel like they're really hard to get a bead on.
