Luke and Leia were high schoolers ( or least about that age) in A New Hope. Han was the creepy college kid who still hangs with high schoolers.

That's not at all how I would picture R2D2. C3PO is spot on, though.

Well, yeah. Of course he should be modeled after the protagonist of the best science fiction movie of the 80s.

I think that's Boba Fett...again This is not how people looked in the 1980's, This is how people were portrayed in movies from the late 1990's and early 2000's as being from the 1980's.

Wait a second. I sense a great disturbance in my logic, as if millions of brain cells suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

Han had no use for hokey religions and ancient weapons.

So why does Han have nunchucks?
 
2012-12-05 08:12:33 AM
pretty sure you could sell the Han n Chewy on shirts.


Son of Thunder: By the time Han was around, blasters were already about 35,000 years old.
The "ancient weapons" was a stab at Ben's age. In Han's eyes the fact that Ben had been a jedi still wasn't enough to survive a fight. He was right.

So if Han and Chewie ride around in a Trans Am and Vader rides a dirt bike, what does Luke blast womp rats with? That skateboard? If they are going with the Marty McFly mash-up, they should go all the way with a 4x4 light pickup.

HS in 1980 had a smoking hall where students enjoyed a cigarette. monitors would look the other way and pretend not to smell whatever else you smoked. it wasn't a homeland security event if someone had a pocket knife. if you didn't try to pass your classes you got left behind - like you should. you mouth off one too many times in shop class and the teacher would pull you into the hall and put the fear of god in you. and the dweebs that were into things like dungeons & dragons or star trek were treated like the losers they were.

When I was in High School you could smoke anywhere on campus except inside the buildings I even remember teachers bumming smokes from students.

I'll second the Han and Chewie thing being not right. Han looks like an idiot. He'd wear pants, and not a belly shirt. He wasn't a soldier or muscle-brah, or anything like that.

Plus what others said, that's 'the 80's as envisioned by someone not there'.

The janitor is a Gamorrean guard. Note the green color scheme, body habitus, and the brutish, slobby demeanor. The mop is a parody of a pole arm.

Which one are you having such qualms with. Luke is Marty Mcfly, that is the 80's. Leia is wearing a trendy outfit that celebs types wore in the 80s. Darth Vader and company are clearly wearing thriller inspired jackets. Han's does seem more early 90's to me, but those kinda blend together and Chewie could be anytime but the mullet certainly compensates for the late 80s look. Lando is dressed like the asshole from revenge of the nerds or any rich kid type in movies of the 80s. You seriously never saw people dress like Greedo, I sure did in the right circles. It might not be what you wore or what people you knew wore but it is mostly iconic pop culture 80s styles and there is no reason to get your panties in a twist over.

THIS.

I was class of '83, and really most people dressed like they did in the 1970s, except for the 'cool kids'.
Heck: a lot of my crowd dressed more like the 1990s grunge kids.

There were flashes of what is stereotypically 1980s fashion, mostly weird hair and the like. The
biggest thing in my time were FLASHDANCE-style leg warmers.

Nah I think it's actually pretty accurate. We had all of those types in Jr. High and HS, even the punk with the big mohawk. It really depends on WHEN in the 80s you went to HS, and WHERE. Early 80s, yes still looking more like 70s except for some of the emerging trends like legwarmers and Pat Benetar (see Fast Times) and mid-late 80s you had the huge stacks of bracelets, which Madonna popularized (she claims she did not invent that look, she was merely copying what the kids in the NY club scene were doing at the time)

Hawaiian shirts were a big thing, as well as various crazy patterns. imitation aviator glasses (thanks top gun) and mullets, yes. The Pat Benetar off the shoulder shirts, yes, we had those. Thriller jackets, or jackets with tons of zippers and buttons, yes those came with the breakdancing craze. Camo pants? Check. Saw those. Preppie sweaters tied over a golf shirt? yup. I can flip through my yearbook and see all this stuff.

Now I went to school in a larger city in California so we may have had more 'trendy' kids than the midwest, who knows.
