Re: Good gawd/ess ...
I was amazed by the down-vote flood (by Reg standards) for your sensible comment, so I give the first posi-vote.
I saw the film as a small child, once since, I liked and like it, but I don't even remember what that miniature looked like.
Surely, if it was so epochal, there must be plastic model kits that, with careful painting and staining, would look even better than the original?
Maybe even a cheaper die-cast metal job?
Oh well, I am off to carefully pose my huge collection of Jar-Jar Binks action figures.
Jar-Jar was the greatest!
