I propose a new game... to find the Ultimate Star Wars Minifig.

I've chosen sixty-four of the most interesting SW minfigs. 64 seems a lot, but I've had to elimate a fair few to get down to these. They will be randomly drawn to fight elimination style, so as we get down to 32, then 16,8,4,2,WINNER. I won't do it poll-method. I'll just allow 24 or so hours per "match" and the consensus wins. Note that this is SW minifig, not actual characters. In the list, versions have often been chosen from specific sets for particular reasons. Also several versions of some characters appear. So we could have Luke fight himself, for example

What we do is for each drawn match is debate who we think would or could win.

I think we'll do one thread for EVERY match, not one thread per match or it'll get ridiculous

Loose Rules

- Be imaginative in your decision of victor. This is LEGO after all.

- Don't be too imaginative. If Grand Moff Tarkin fights anyone, don't have him just order the DS2 to blow up whatever planet they're on

- No "well Bill defeated Bob in the film so there's your answer". Almost all SW fights had outside influences. These are "fair" fights. No third person involvement

- Have FUN

If you're in agreement, I'll draw the matches and we'll start the first match tonight. My proposed list follows. Additions are welcome, but its one-in-one-out.

Nice idea :-)

I really don't have anyone to add or remove, but it's going to be fun to see how this turns out :-)

(and I'll be seriously disappointed if Jar-Jar doesn't get killed in his first fight ;-) (except if his opponent commits suicide because meeting Jar-Jar is so horrible :-P )

Thanks for support so far, guys.

No offence to the three of you, but you are relatively new members. I'd be interested on what longer-term members think too. Is this worth doing?

Don't worry, this isn't an exactly popular section with 50 topics a day, I'm sure some "older" people will notice this.........eventually.

No, it's most certainly not. Shame on you, Tau. :-P Is it inappropriate for me to boo you?

I looks like you need to be more patient. ;-) Please don't put blame on other members or even mention seniority, just kindly ask for more replies. Thanks! :-)

I said "no offence". I just meant if any long-term members (like those that had been around a good while) thought something like "we've done this before" or "seems like the project will last too long to retain interest". Or "actually, we've never done anything like this, go for it!"

Hey! >:-( >:-( >:-( That's my job. :-D :-D :-D

I think this'd be a great idea, Tau. Although you would have to expect a lot of "Tarkin uses the Death Star to blow up your mama home planet!!" and other such nonsense, especially that controversial Bill and Bob fight in Episode 10. I think it'd be fun to be all encompassing, Timmy vs. Darth Maul. Pippin Reed vs. luminara unduli, Viking king vs. Jar Jar. But, your list of 64 is perfectly awesome.

I think if you set up some ground rules, it could not only be a blast but be around for quite some time. Just curious, what's the difference between one thread per match and one thread for every match. I'm not wrapping my brain around that one...

Great idea! I say go for it! Yo Adrian!

UMC on!

EDIT: OOOOOOH! I have an idea. What if you got a list of members interested in playing UMC and assigned each one a minifig. Then when their turn to fight came, those two members are in charge of posting an actual fight?! You can set up ground rules that actions take place between ** and trash talk takes place between "" and you give them a week to fight and then maybe poll the winner or choose some UMC judges. What do you think?

Match 1 = one thread

Match 2 = one thread

...

vs

One thread for Match 1, then Match 2...

Given that there (at the moment) 64 characters, that means 32 1st round matches = 32 threads if there's one match per thread. No way are we doing that. One (long) thread for all matches

I think this sounds pretty fun. I would probably be interested in participating if you carry on with it. :-)

OK, here's what I'll do. Tonight when I get in from TKD class, I'll post the draw for round 1. Then I'll present the first match. We have roughly 24 hours to debate a winner. Tomorrow night, I'll hail a winner and declare the second match. And so on. If we get little interest I'll stop it. Hopefully interest will pick up.

Remember the principles: fun and imaginative.
