Damn. I read one of the questions wrong. I thought the "favorite jedi" question was "least favorite jedi" and I selected Mace Windu. If you can count it for Obi-Wan Kenobi, I'd appreciate it!

Which is your favorite creature from the movies?

The Nexu. I saw it try to kill Padme and I was all "KITTY ME WANTS!" I probably shouldn't have shouted that out in the theater.

Terrific poll. Brings back good memories. <3

I found it difficult to pick between Artoo and Han for favorite non-Jedi good guy. The droid won out. :D The spacecraft one was difficult too: Falcon, Slave I, or Vader's TIE?

I didn't even know all those Force powers had names. :)

:: princess cinnabon.

The 1997 re-releases of the original trilogy was about as close as I got to seeing the original three in theaters, sadly. :(

Also, showing some love for yellow/gold lightsabers, tauntauns, and Princess Leia. ♥

Great poll!

obi-wan old smile

Great poll. My "other" vote for favorite creature are the Ewoks. They're dancing, singing, ass-kicking teddy bears. I will never understand the Ewok hatred. If Ewoks don't count, then I'm going for whatever they call Boga's race (the giant lizard thing Obi-Wan rode in RotS).

It always makes me smile to see Obi-Wan win these polls as favorite character. Bitches better recognize his awesome. But... how can Han Solo possibly be more popular than Princess Leia? D:

[SW] Fly free

Great poll! There were a couple of close calls for favorites there ;)

The 1997 special editions was the closest I ever got to watching the originals on the big screen. I so wish I could have been there for the first release.

star wars: luke - fuckin sensitive

Nice idea for a poll! :)

I wish I'd seen any of the original trilogy in the theater. Sadly, I was only a year old when RotJ was first released. The only SW-movies I've seen on the big screen were Episodes I-III.

My favorite critter is Boga, the varactyl from ROTS. :)

Palp lie

Great poll, though it might have been better if the different types of Star Destroyers were seperated. I would have voted specifically for the Super Star Destroyer as my favorite.

I'd love to know who was the other person who voted for Bail Organa. He does not get enough love.

I wish I'd seen the OT in the theater. I adore all six movies, and though AOTC is my least favorite, I still like it. To me, the saga is about the story as a whole.

Also, Palpatine needs more love. Seriously, there would have been no Vader without him.

I'm surprised to see that Luke is beating Anakin as favorite Jedi! You'd think that with all this prequel marketing Lucasfilm has been doing with younger people (people who were born after the original trilogy came out, like myself) Anakin would be the "badass, edgy" character that everyone loves.

But I'm glad to see Luke winning. Oh Luke =)

Bounty hunters shouldn't be under a "bad guy" section. They're not bad. They're not good. But they're not bad.

And on favorite creature, I really like Boga, the lizard thing Obi-Wan was riding in ROTS on Utapau.
