Star Wars?

23 Apr

Star Wars


I am, by no means, the greatest Star Wars fan. I enjoyed the movies,and I feel comfortable with all of the main characters and a good amount of the minor characters. So, when my son wanted some Star Wars gummies, I had no problem making that purchase (in fact, I was pleased that he picked Star Wars over Diego, Scooby Doo, etc). My problem was when I looked closely at the box!!!! I feel like some random employee put his face on the package and nobody caught it. Who is this guy? Someone please help clear my brain… I cannot advance in life until this is resolved.

    Grand Moff Tarkin. My friend is the biggest fan of the guy, and he’s one of the military leaders of the Empire. That’s the only reason I know who he is….

      Thank you! Certainly not on Star Wars par with Obi, Luke, and Han. Odd choice for the cover of a package.

        It really is. Like he’s a big character, but a kid eating fruit snacks is going to have no idea who that is.

      Yeah, I think his main success in the movie was to not get chokex to death be Darth Vader’s Jedi mind powers.

    He used to slay vampires back in the 60s and 70s . . . does that help?

    OR . . . he could be the guy running the Death Star.

    Just in case; Peter Cushing

    Grand Moff Tarkin, played by Peter Cushing. Same actor who played Helsing in the Dracula movies and Holmes in the Sherlock Holmes movies.

      What an obscure character to appear with the other iconic figures.

    Haha. That was a great post. Glad you had some people that could clear that up for you!
