They brought Rey and Kylo, which are good characters even if they didnt quite know what to do with them.

This is a great point. I did totally dig the two characters. They just had horrible stories and scripts.

The prequels gave us the building blocks for so much interesting star wars, because the story was interesting. The Clone Wars, Rebels, etc. The story for the sequels was gross and shit, I don't care anything about what was going on during that time other than maybe the Jedi Academy stuff.

I'm not fully ready to participate in this dumpster fire of a sub-forum again. Thank you, wease.

I'm not Strat, obviously. But I will say for myself that I've always been meh about the character and I'm surprised by how much I like the show.

Ever since we got that action figure a year before the movie came out, he’s been one of my favorite SW characters. Who knows why at this point? And does it matter? But in 1980 we finally got a movie with him in it and that was that.

It doesn't matter one bit.

Bodhi Rook is one of my favorite characters!

It doesn't matter what hooks us. And Fett has an amazing design. No one can honestly deny that. The look is amazing. And without much story he's wide open to the imagination. I totally get that.

I missed all of that. Empire came out the year I was born. And I didn't see any of the OT until well after it was complete and out of theaters. I found SW on VHS. By the time I was old enough to really even have an opinion on Fett, he was just a cool looking dude who went out in a Three Stooges skit.

I wish I'd had that in between time when everything was possible with the character. Because the look alone is enough to inspire adoration.

Man. It really was a magical time. I still vividly remember reactions to certain scenes and every winter for years after, the field behind our home was Hoth and I was Luke. I remember the anticipation and waiting to go see it. Then I remember going with all my older cousins (who always had ALL the toys) to go see it. They had just gotten back from seeing it and then we all went and they saw it again. After having the Fett figure for a while and finally seeing what his deal was, I was fucking HOOKED.
