Dude, enough. That's a ****ty thing to say about somebody who has worked her ass off for decades. She's produced every classic Speilberg ever made. We get it, you're mad about the EU. Is there a way f

Forgot to add-- funniest moment for me...   When "Red 5" was losing his cool, my kid leaned over and whispered "I thought Luke was Red 5."   Then the guy crashed.   "Oh-- I get it now."

True, it's just that when I look back I can't recall anything from those series. But names like Ugnaughts, 8D8, Klaatu and Weequay are as familiar to me as Luke Skywalker thanks to a Kenner toy line. (Imagine my amazement as I grew up years after ROTJ and watched older films like The Day the Earth Stood Still and heard the words Klaatu barada nikto.)


There must be a time traveler involved in that incident. How else could the names of Jabba's hench-aliens have been used in the 1950s?


How much input did the Kenner company have in the naming of these toys? Or did GL himself issue the names?


I vaguely remember the Kenner toyline tried to expand beyond the movies after 1983, but nothing came of it.

Too me a bit to recall, but yes, there was a time traveller involved!
