This death is ruined in the Special Edition.

Hence why the Theatrical Version (among reasons) is always the disc out of the Limited Edition I choose.

"I've been waiting for this a long time..."
"Yeah, I bet you have!"
*BANG!*

Actually, Mouseburger, you are transcribing the special edition version of the death. The one in the theatrical version has Han shooting Greedo before he has a chance to think about executing Han.

Yup, it's true. Han shot first!

How did Lucas think shooting first didn't fit his character and change it to "self-defense"? I'd say it already was self-defense. You have a guy holding you at gunpoint, shooting him before he can shoot you at any given time during the situation is still self-defense.

On the risk of the comments for this getting way out of hand, I think (in the least) an annotation about the difference between SE and regular might be a good idea. winking smiley

Perhaps we need that "alternate death scene" category now?

I don't know how many of you read the expanded universe books, but in the Legacy of the Force series - which is the latest series this whole Han / Greedo thing has been turned into a running joke of sorts.

First in Betrayal, an old friend asks Princess Leia if Han was ok, to which she replied, "He's fine. Han shot first." Then in Bloodlines Boba Fett told Han that, "You should learn to shoot first Solo."

(my particular favourite has to be the wolfman who looks like he escaped from the lot of a rather unconvincing horror movie!)
The wolfman was replaced with a CGI creature in the Special Editions.

What about Gunfight? It is two people shooting at each other (in the SE at least).
