    Chewbacca leads early on? Really? Grunting and having your dialog repeated back constantly is better than being a gifted actor? That scares nearly as much as the incredibly nad looking stills from that Clone Wars thing…

    Chewbacca gets mad when someone beats him at Chess. What happens when he has to actually fight somebody? Chewy all the way.

    Who said anything about being a good actor?

    Chewie, FTW.

    I propose that next week’s poll be: Leia or Uhuru!

    I like Spock more in general but I’d rather hang out with Chewie

    No contest, really. If I could pick ANY second to be by my side in a tough situation, it’s Spock. Stronger than human, super intelligent, awlays finds a way, just as loyal as chewy – and he speaks a language i can understand. Not too shabby.

    Chewbacca all the way. He comes from a planet that barely anyone can pronounce. He rides with Solo. He helps Destory an evil empire. And all in all what has Spock done Really.

    well, if it was a battle of trivial pursuit, the winner would be Spock, but it is a fist fight, and i don’t think Chewy would like to lose at trivial pursuit, or any board game, so… Chewy.

    Did Chewbacca ever rip someones arm off, or was Solo making a stereotypical comparison of poor sportmanship in Wookies? Spock is more than just a nerve pinch. And Chewie as much as people praise his strength, is a clumsy fighter. If it was a Gorn situation, most people would go with Spock. If it was bow-caster vs. phaser, you got to go with Spock. If it was plucky side-kick, OK the Wookie wins because logic is such a cold bitch. In a fight, I would want Spock at my back, not some fucking, walking carpet.

    And following the Trek vs. Wars categories, I think we should have some more categories…at least in pictures…

    Boba Fett vs Worf
    Jabba’s Prisoner Princess Leia vs. Green Orion Bimbo
    Clone Army vs. The Borg
    Jango Fett vs. KHAAAAAAAAAAAAN
    Yoda vs. Balok
    Luke Skywalkers Hair (Return of the Jedi) vs. Chekov’s Hair (original ST series)

    Here’s my question:

    Is Chewbacca doing the Time Warp?
