Re: Jabba the Hut

Theatre and pageantry.

Remember when O'Niel tried to sell machine guns to Jaffar rebels?

"This is a TOY!" Puts down the staff weapon, picks up a machine gun "And this is how you kill someone."

(Carter shooting at the swinging log, remember?)

The religion of the Jedi, is how the state makes sure that they have humble servants rather than psychopaths intent on being loved proportionately to their power to destroy.

Imagine if God wasn't made up.

How would you regulate the priesthood to make sure they didn't use God to clean up in Vegas?

Re: Jabba the Hut

I'd replace the letter 'm' with an 'h' in all the references to smiting in the holy books. The entire religion would turn into a meme that consumed itself.

Is Data strong enough to pick up Jabba over his head and chuck him?

In the beginning of "Return of the Jedi," Jabba grabs some live thing and eats it. If, instead, he wanted to eat Chewbacca or Boba Fett, would they be in deep manure, or could they extricate themselves from the situation?
Are they packing?

They have whatever weapons they were shown with at the beginning of "Return of the Jedi." So, Chewbacca has none. I'm not sure what Boba had.

God wasn't 'made up.' There are very good reasons to believe that He exists. But let's not turn this thread into a religious battle.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Boba has a rocket pack.

He should have been able to "jump" out of the Sarlacc.

Re: Jabba the Hut

In the books (which are on some kind of canon grid..) he escapes the Sarlaac thanks to his Mandalorian armor.

Say the whole thing.

They don't know that you're a nerd unless you say the whole thing.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Even if Data were strong enough to lift him, it would be very hard to get the leverage to pick him up without toppling over. He would need time to prepare.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Maybe Data's arms can operate like a fork lift?

Re: Jabba the Hut

I don't think he's heavy enough, he'd topple over. Jabba would be a lot of frontal weight, he couldn't balance it out until he had him over his head.

He'd need to trick Jabba into coming with him to get his car fixed, then ask the mechanics if they can play on the hydraulic lift, he'd say "You first Jabs, get up on it and i'll make it go up". Then he could walk underneath him, pick him up and throw him. It's the only conceivable plan that could work.
