    I believe you'll find Maul was generally described as a "Zabrak"

    Never really thought of it, but you might have a point. And yes, the question marks you as a complete and utter geek... ;-)

    It would have been cool though, as I like the designs of sand people and Darth Maul. But Maul's a Zabrak indeed

    very good thanks Mordus,

    Sadly I preferred my original assumption lol
    I prefer the concept of seeing development or the different possible sides to existing races in sci-fi flicks instead of the approach of making one billion only slightly sort of different characters... you can still sell just as many toys I am sure? oh well, could have been a cool idea lol.

    I don't know if i read the wiki page right, but i swore it said his horns at one point in the development stage were feathers??..feathers..much more scarey the horns lol.

    Iain McCaig initially designed them as feathers but they were interpreted as horns by some other team. They liked the idea and kept the horns.

    Lucas already shoe-horned in c-3p0, r2d2, boba fett, the death star (which was developed at the maw installation, not "Bug Planet") and all sorts of tie-ins, so we really didn't need another "oh hey look it's something from the good movies, watch this!"

    Darth Maul was always one of my favorite characters, because he's all broody and looks like Satan and shit. I don't think I ever got so emotionally invested in Star Wars that I started wondering what species he was, though. That level of nerdiness is best left to roleplayers and cosplayers.
    Also, Jar Jar Binks is an abomination.

    I haven't watched a Star Wars movie since I was a kid, but I thought they were called "Sand People", not "Tusk...

    Haha, actually if you have ever done anything other than watched the movies, you likely know he's a Zabrak. Play a video game here and there, and the information falls in your lap.

    It's hardly the level of nerdiness you seem to think it is.

    Your anti-nerdiness is nerdier. ;P

    I couldn't believe how disposable Maul was in Ep. 1. He should have been a recurring character. But I seem to recall that in some other format Darth Maul does make a return as a cyborg. Top half him; bottom half cybernetic legs and the like. Which I thought was cool.

    The only Star Wars games I've ever played are the old nintendo ds game and lego. Not a whole lot of information goin on there. I like nerds, and I like Star Wars nerds as long as they don't dress up in public. But people always look at me like I'm some clown-porn-watching deviant whenever I mention that I like Star Wars.

    You're totally on to something here Select.

    Also aghast at your geek comment. If you're not a geek of some kind you're probably going extinct.

    This.




    I'll just leave this here for those that haven't seen.


    I always thought there were many things "odd" about the prequels. They never sat well with me. Until I saw this and it was one of those .... "OH YEAH THATS WHAT IT WAS" moments...




    Forgot to answer the original topic. Naw never saw that and can't see it mainly because Sand Raiders literally were portrayed as the opposite of what Maul was. Maul was a single warrior that would fight 2 Jedi's while Sand Raiders are easily frightened but will return in bigger numbers for a single opponent. They do nothing but howl, and are barbaric almost. Maul, none of that.

    JFierce what the fuck did I just watch? :| I was actually a bit frightened at peices of the second review. That guy is insane. But hilarious.

    ...Huh. An entire video reviewing the characters of the Star Wars prequels and maybe two words about Jar Jar Binks. Weird.

    Oh if you want the full experience you'll need an couple hours at least. Each review has like 10 parts, and he reviews all three films. Third review I think was an hour. He tears them apart piece by piece. Best part is just how much sense it makes overall. Personally if I can remember I didn't see a point he made that I didn't overall agree with.

    Can never look at the prequels again the same way.

    Well, the marvel star wars issues are considered canon(or at least most of them), and I recall the tusken raiders being described as ''pseudo humans''. As a matter of fact, some of them ARE humans, but raised by other tuskes as children. In the general consensus, tusken's are a mixed pool of pseudo-human beings that can interbreed. Now, time to dig back into my comic collection!

    I could never see tuskens as darth maul.

    Having the people describe the characters was an awesome idea. The prequel characters have no personality, there's just nothing to say.
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Which is a huge shame...I personally liked the design of most jedi's out there like shaak ti, kit fisto and plo koon. Well, kit fisto and plo koon got like 20 seconds of screen time but their designs kicked ass nevertheless.
    And darth maul......can't look any more badass than that.....

    Star Wars episode 4 was a remake of Hidden Fortress by Akira Kurosawa.




    Just, putting that out there.

    Debatable, though obviously drawn on for influence at the least. Star Wars in general isn't 100% unique it draws on the standard storytelling.
    Like Campbells standard story format.

    Given at the time that Lucas was heavy into kurosawa & he and spielberg were financing Kurosawa's projects along with many others, I'd say it is tilting towards the definately 'most likely'.
