    At the risk of sounding like an uber-geek for even having this debate (too late), "Han shot first" is not incorrect because Greedo had his gun drawn and had every intention of shooting (he even said he was going to kill Han), it's just that Han didn't give him the chance.

    "Han shot" was never something anyone said from the moment the Special Editions came out, and it never would have caught on regardless, because it's awkward sounding and nondescript and doesn't look good on a t-shirt. "Han shot first" is the shortest descriptive summary of "Han shot Greedo before Greedo could shoot him," is the logical counterpoint to "Greedo shot first" from the Special Edition version, and Han's habit of shooting first also has the benefit of having been referenced in the EU both before and after the Special Editions came out.

    Now I feel dirty. Here, just to keep things relevant to the thread:

    I was afraid the toy-collectors would fail to see the humour, so decided to post these here.

    As an English teacher, I need to point out, it needs a comma, but I also recognize that adding the comma might ruin the joke.

    I was just afraid you'd all get it wrong if I posted them drive-by-style in a thread I had not been in before [​IMG]

    They must have been made by a collector, is my thinking...

    The sad thing is, there are absolutely toy collectors that would buy the empty box.
