George Lucas Now Says That Han NEVER Shot First As He Shoves Star Wars 3D Down Your Throat
I hate history revisionists, but not as much as I hate George Lucas for making Han shoot last. Now, with Star Wars 3D coming, he’s now saying that the scene modification wasn’t a change. He claims that Han NEVER shot first:
The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo [who seemed to be the one who shot first in the original] to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down.
George, how do you have the thermal detonators to try to rewrite history in this way? Do you think we are stupid? Wasn’t it enough to paint that stupid laser blast coming at a stupid angle from Greedo? Do you really think that, if Greedo shot first, he would have missed Han at point blank?
No, George, you can draw all the lasers you want and add all the wider shots you want, but you can’t rewrite history. If Greedo had shot first in that scene setting you directed, Han would be dead, period. Nobody can miss at that distance. Not even a stormtrooper.
So, I stopped the list this year at 108 items. I probably could have added another 25+ items, but I am tired. I started the list back in April, so I spent 4 months on it. I am already thinking of a different way to format it for next year (perhaps even offering a PDF you can print with photos).
So, as of today, we have 108 San Diego Comic Con 2011 Exclusives listed with Photos.
Thanks to all of you who visited our site during Comic Con.
Here is the Mos Eisley Cantina environment that you can purchase separately for the new Greedo figure. Now all you need to do is pick up the Episode IV (A New Hope) Han Solo and you are all set. Contact Dan at the store to see what we have in stock at firstname.lastname@example.org. No blasters in the store please!

12 inch Figure Environment
Item Number: 100020

The Mos Eisley Cantina Environment features the scene of the blaster duel as Greedo tracks down the rogue Han Solo, the very table where the two negotiated Han’s debt. Featuring an LED light-up element and a refreshing beverage accessory to quench the desert thirst, The Mos Eisley Cantina Environment is an outstanding addition to any collection, an iconic scene perfect for any display.
Even though the Exclusive Greedo is sold out (the exclusive came with a Han Solo Wanted Poster), if you are really interested, I recommend you get on Sideshow’s wait list for it.

A snivelling lowlife in the seedy underworld of Tatooine, Greedo is looking for his ticket to the big league. When he stumbles across wanted smuggler Han Solo in Chalmun’s roughneck cantina in Mos Eisley, the wannabe bounty hunter sees his chance to prove his value to his boss, Jabba the Hutt, and confronts the suave pilot. Apprehending a notorious rogue like Solo would certainly make Jabba take note, and could be the break Greedo needs to become what he aspires to be- a feared and respected hunter, the pinnacle of achievement in Rodian society.
Sadly, this is not to be Greedo’s day. Biting off more than his twitching snout can chew, Greedo collects a blaster bolt in the stomach from Solo instead of a fat reward from Jabba. No fearsome galactic reputation, the scrawny thug’s legacy is just another steaming mess for the long suffering bartender Wuher to clean up after closing time.
