  • I hope they lose, if only so they won't get any damages that could be used to make more Star Wars films.

  • But if they win, at least these guys won't be able to afford to start making knock-off Jar Jar Binks masks...

  • Only a waste of time if you believe that using designs and selling copies is acceptable business practices. Lucas owns all the IP related to Star Wars. Ainsworth was contracted at the time to mass produce the armour and helmets. The orginal designs were NOT from Ainsworth. Simple.

  • Princess Lucas: It's not over yet.
    Han Sumption: It is for *me*, sister. Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess. I expect to be well paid. *I'm* in it for the money.
    Princess Lucas: You needn't worry about your reward. If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive.
    [to Luke]
    Princess Lucas: Your friend is quite the mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything. Or anybody.
    [she stalks out]
    Luke: [calling after her] I care.

    (with thanks to the guy who wrote the script.)

  • I find George Lucas's lack of distinction between a sculpture and a commercial physical design disturbing.
