Last Week’s Image: Hani Shot First

If you’re already familiar with the phrase Han Shot First then I’d imagine you already got what the image was a play on – if not.. the original phrase comes from the editing of the first (that’s episode four) Star Wars movie – notably the part in the Mos Eisley tavern where in the original theatrical version, Han Solo carefully and quietly unstraps his blaster and shoots Greedo from under the table. In the later edited versions, Greedo shoots first (or at the same time), turning a first strike into one of retaliation or all-other-options-barred self defense. Though I always thought the change was rather silly and that it does take away from the character, I was never the sort to loudly proclaim how we much now lynch George Lucas.

That said, I thought it’d be a funny kind of image to assemble, so there you go.

    Wait, is that some sort of a re-modelled tux Hani’s wearing?
    Gotta say, tho, the old dungeon hunter set from before TBC makes Tiny look like an ewul little beast, and suits her personality on the spot πŸ˜‰
    Great work man, you surprise me every time!

      It’s the tuxedo texture, yes. I think it’s even slightly shiny due to the fact that I took the model edit used from a model where I experimented with trying to make a leather jacket out of it. It was the closest and simplest analogue I could find, so I just ran with it.

    This kinda reminds me of Looking for Group, a webcomic by Ryan Sohmer.
    There one of the mian charecture has two consciences, one is Evil Darth vader, and the good one Chewbacca.

    Hani is about to become a hunter!

    While Han *did* shoot first, Greedo had his blaster out as soon as he sat down. Stupid kid just HAD to gloat before collecting his bounty.
