Haha, Wow, I think maybe someone like Vader of Boba Fett, but otherwise I'm not sure if I could.

I saw that on TV, I'd say it is  hilariously simple for the one part, but also completely impossible on the other hand.
Of course it is easy (at least I would say so) to tell for example a Stormtrooper form a Clone (with hands or mouth), but with figs that are identical apart from colours (Stormie and TIE pilot), it can't be done (unless the plastic tastes different :tongue: ).
Just call me Rob.

Well, I saw this on TV, but the first thing, I wanted to say is: poooooooooooor minifig...  :cry_sad:

That girl did a great job though. I think I heard, she's only 10 years old...

Well, that's something I definitly wouldnt do to my minifigures.
I mean; she must have practiced it too... poor minifigures.

To come up with this bet is brilliant though.
But how she knew it was Han Solo and not Luke Skywalker from another set?
I agree with Commander_Rob, some minifigures like the stormtrooper and imperial pilot are exactly the same shape.

Well, as far as I could realize, there was only one fig with the normal male hairpiece, in this case it was Han Solo.
There was a pilot-Luke, but not an Endor or Tatooine version. It's the same with the stormie and the imperial pilot, I don't know which one was displayed, but there must have been only one. Otherwise it wouldn't have worked.

She can tell if it's Han Solo or Endor Leia but not a simple snowtrooper. Impressive nonetheless.
Always two there are. No more, no less. 

That would be easy for special figs like Vader or Boba, but it would be impossible to tell Luke apart from Han Solo, and how did she guess the set too?? :wacko:

That was really weird.

Could do it though, just with the molding of the head, it's pretty easy, until it comes to short-haired Luke, Obi-Wan cape less, old style young Anakin, and everyone else with the traditional male hair mold.

I thought you were supposed to be against putting toys in your mouth. I guess she's under 3 years of age.  :hmpf:  :tongue:  I bet the capes would taste bad. I wouldn't want saliva all over my figs anyway. I might be able to if I channel my force powers. :grin:  The figs also look violated. What if there are some Chinese figures in there with lead. :sick: Now who's laughing TLG!

Mmm, taste like Yoda. :yoda:

EDIT: I just asked Katie to pick one off of my Rebel display and it was either Crix Madine or Han Solo and I actually got it right. It was Solo. :cry_happy:

I couldn't resist. :tongue: I had to ignore the little voice inside me. I have two of them and I don't believe my spit glands are overactive. :grin: I'd love to see this happen at an EB event. Take pics. I'll use them as blackmail later. :devil: But seriously, I think it'd be funny to show how much of an AFOL you guys can be.

One thing I forgot was when I was building My Battle of Endor my bother called me and I told him that someone would give Endor Leia a Rebel Commando torso. I was right. :tongue:

All of those warnings at the beginning of the instruction booklets, ignored and publicly broadcasted.  :laugh:

That was a really weird TV show. First, I wouldn't let my minifigures go inside anyone's mouth. Second, it would be impossible to tell for figs like Obi Wan and Luke, when only the colors and markings are different. Maybe she can tell by the amount of ink?  :grin:

Is this girl a Lego aficionado? She seems to know quite a bit, some of the choices could have been dodgy like identical minifigs with different printing but I think I probably could have gotten everything, I'm guessing she mistook the snowtrooper backpack for Boba's jetpack. Germany's awesome, this would never have been allowed in the US. That kid accidentally swallowing one = a world of lawsuits against the producers.
