So are we supposed to just debate who we think would win or should we describe the fight?

Pinned.  Oh, and 3PO obviously wins.  He declares the little Ewok to stand down, and what Ewok would defy their deity?

Hmm... That makes a certain degree of sense...

Do we just bet and see the results? Not exactly what I expected.

Whatever you'd like. Do a vig' if youreally want to! Have FUN with it!!!



My take:


I hadn't considered SW4J's point regard Godlyness. Nice one. That aside:

I can see Wicket whacking 3PO repeatedly, but having no effect on his golden hide. 3PO may try to cuff Wicket just out of frustration. He did to R2. IF he succeeds, he gets the (unintentional) KO as his golden arms have gotta be pretty heavy. If not, his batteries eventualy wear out, leaving Wicket the victor. I can see Wicket being the smarter and is obvioulsy more agile.

Result: I give the edge to Wicket (and I want 3PO to lose, simply because I know I'll never own one)

If a handful of ewoks could defeat the imperial army and their AT-STs, Wickett could kick 3PO's whiny megablocks any day of the week. Of course I don't know how many days there are in an Endor week...

Hands down, Wicket. God or not, if you put them in a cage and say only one of you gets out alive, Wicket would bash 3PO's brain circuits to pieces on the cage bars...

But the combat strategies of either entity is rendered completely moot considering the small furry creature will immediately drop to the floor in worship at the mere sight of the shiny android! There is no question that any ewok village member would not be able to inflict harm upon our electronic friend.

I can't believe I'm getting into this. :-D

But isn't saying that Wicket would just fall down to his knees and worship 3PO the same as saying Grand Moff Tarkin would just blow up his home planet? If so, CaptainTau forbade us from doing that.

So the question isn't would Wicket kick 3PO's megablocks, it's could he kick 3PO's megablocks.  

God, 007 I hate you so much!  >:-(  >:-(  >:-(  >:-(

8- I can't believe I'm getting into this either.

That was a joke, kids. I hate no man, especially not 007.

I love him.  *wub*

Yes, Wicket could kill 3po, but he would not. Granted that this is named UMC, based of UFC, we're actually placing them in the ring together, in which case it would be a matter of who would win, not who could win. X-D

OK, based on consensus, I declare the winner of the winner of the first match to be Wicket Ewok, who advances to round 2.

The random draw for the second match is unfortunately far less interesting. Oh well, boring matches will happen just as exciting ones will.

Our second match takes place on the planet of Ryloth. Featuring our favourite Twi'leck, BIB FORTUNA. And his opposition, a member of the former Jedi Council before the Jedi Purge, from the Mos Eisley Cantina set, we have OBI WAN KENOBI.


Round 1. Match 2. Mos Eisley Cantina Obi Wan Kenobi vs. Bib Fortuna

Oh...really?  8- That was quick. Okay great.

Obi-wan would whip that freaky twilek sissy-pants all the way back to Tatooine. Hands down. He would just wave his hand and say "you want to impale yourself on a sharp chute of Ryloth vegetation" and Bib would reply "I want to impale myself on a sharp chute of Ryloth vegetation" and then he'd dive onto the nearest spear-like growth and that'd be the end.

My take

Yes, its a boring predicatable match. Obi Wan wins hands down. Hopefully a more exciting match will be drawn later

I like the fig of Bib Fortuna very much, But the character of Bib is not so nice.
Obi-wan is a nice fig (first version in landspeeder was the first fig with grey hair) and the character of obi-wan is also nice.
Obi-wan is much more Iconic than Bib, so I go for Obi.

I think we're all agreed that Master Obi Wan wins that one. More from him later.

Your next match takes place in the hallways of the Senate building on Coruscant. Featuring Republic Army General and newest LEGO Jedi member, KIT FISTO. And his opponent, fresh from Jabba's Sail Barge is TEMJEEL SKREEJ



Round 1. Match 3. Kit Fisto vs. Temjeel Skreej

Kit Fisto for sure
Since that is just Lando in a disguise and all he has is blaster he would loose bad
Kit Fisto is a Jedi Master and knows lightsaber combat well
Lando would fire one bolt and Kit would repel that bolt right back at him
So that's the end of Lando  :-D
Jedi could beat any average SW fig like Jabba or Han but might loose to Sith and Bounty Hunters

Lando = spacedust. Kit could say: 'Go space your self'. And then he'd laugh as Lando shot himself in the face. But in reality, I think Kit would win only because Lando hasn't proven himself to be a true Jedi killer in any canon source that I am aware of. So the Nautolan Master offs Skreej.

Even though Kit Fisto was killed really easily by Palpatine, he would still make easy work of Lando. Lando would try to poke Kit with his spear, Kit would dodge, and then promptly chop Lando's head off.

Temjeel ties Kit Fisto's hands with his Lekku. Kit get's completely battle useless, looses his equilibration and falls down like a fool. Temjeel puts himself standing over Kit's body, waving his weapon in the air, like any victorious warrior.
