If it was a silly, impossible concept it probably wouldn't be being pursued so diligently.

Oh it totally could. Or not. Humans have wasted tons of resources in the past on researching unachievable ...

I think if someone like Lucas took The Lord of the Rings and retold it as a space-opera instead of making Star Wars that Samwise Gamgee would be a droid.

And later people on a forum would be debat ...

I think that because it's obvious to me that a programmer could set up a droid to say "Ow" instead "My cranial...". And would do so to make the product easier to interact with.

Those figures look great. I remember some of the old Ral Partha figures in the pictures, but I don't think I ever acquired any of them.

So a character and 15 warriors is probably where I will concl ...

Dunno if this is best suited to "planets" or "species".

The Anointed People are finally underway. I have (as of last night) in hand at least one of every pose shown in the orig ...

Suthep do you think 3PO is the norm? You seem to have given both answers.

Like I said before. Being able to function normally with his limbs ripped off is an indication that 3-PO doesn't feel pain. ...

Re: do droids feel pain? Sure they do. We see this in ANH on the Jawa sand crawler we see EV-9 torture another droid. The droid behaves as if it feels pain. It's reactions don't make much sense otherw ...

Is anyone actually asserting that?

I run into it often. "[Faction X] is no better, they treat the droids like slaves!" is a common type of statement among fans. According to people at d ...

The tin man and scarecrow are magical and a whole other thing than droids too. But I think WOZ gets way too little credit in fan's discussions of Star Wars. Probably because there's little crossover i ...

Hmmmm, any suggestions on the formatting would be most welcome.

TauntaunScout, you forgot to add snark quotes to this post. I can't believe you meant to have this post taken seriously. I mean, c'mon, comparing self-aware people like C-3PO and R2-D2 to toasters? ...
