View Full Version : The guy in ESB that wastes C-3PO is an Ugnaught, correct?

Threepio's attacker is an Ugnaught speaking in basic, right?

You never see c-3po' attacker but when chebacca flips his switch he says"oh no stormtroopers...". So it is safe to say it is a stormtrooper.

It's actually my personal belief that C-3PO is blasted by Boba Fett, who is in the same room with some Stormtroopers. I honestly don't believe any stormtrooper could: A) hit the droid in one shot; or B) recognize that C-3PO is the only protocol droid on Cloud City who is aligned with the rebels. I mean COME ON! Who really believes that stormtroopers - the same guys who didn't notice right off that one of the two stormtroopers escorting a wookiee throughout the Death Star was only 5' 7" - could almost instantly tell one protocol droid from another AND tell that this droid was the one with the rebels AND draw and shoot that droid AND hit it on the first barrage? (and I haven't even mentioned the gravelly voice that is un-stormtrooper-like images/icons/wink.gif)

This is EU, but I think that Tales Of The Bounty Hunters says it was either Fett or IG88.

Yeah, JT, I've always thought it was Boba Fett hanging out with some stormtroopers. It also sounds like he's not wearing his helmet because the voice is unsynthesized. Maybe they were checking out how similar they all look.... images/icons/tongue.gif

2nd part to question: Why did the attacker attack?

I didn't know it was part of the EU, I'd love to know if it really is.


Dogdude, if my assumption about Fett being the shooter is correct, it's to keep the heroes from talking to C-3PO, who'd tell them about the stormtroopers who are hiding. Fett has to know that 3PO will run and tell his friends, and Fett also knows that Solo and friends have gotten away from a bounty hunter on Ord Mantell and so if they know about the traps set, they could conceivably get away. If they get away, Vader will CERTAINLY be unhappy... do you want Vader unhappy? images/icons/grin.gif

I have a theory that there was actually more than one shooter. I mean, look at how many pieces C-3PO was blasted into! I'm certain it was the work of more than one shooter.

And look at the angle of his head as he's struck: back, and to the left...

Boba Fett, maybe. Stormtroopers, possibly. But I'm guessing someone was BEHIND Threepio as well, probably sniping from the old Information Hardcopy Depository. Watch the footage again, over and over, repeatedly, with very little sleep, until it makes sense to you, too.
