I posted about this on another thread a while back. I gave my daughter a tub of beaters a couple of years ago and loads of them have been renamed now, we've got:
Dar Favour- Darth Vader
Grandad - Ben Kenobi
Bumchin - Walrusman
Froggy - Snaggletooth
Lizard man - Bossk
Pig Hobbit - Ugnaught
Mummy Bespin - Leia Bespin
Mummy Boussh - Leia Boussh
Shrek - Gammorean Guard
Fat Daddy - Rancor Keeper
I'm sure there's others too that I can't recall :lol:

Woman I used to work with about 12 years ago once referred to R2D2 and C3PO as the dustbin robot and the tin man.

For me Greedo was always Green Greedo (I still tend to think of him like that), I think because this is how he was named in the Palitoy comic adverts for the 20-back debut figures in the UK.
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar and Leia Hoth. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

Every time I see mention of Green Greedo I want to sing it to the tune of Jean Genie by David Bowie.

Bib Fortuna The Sausage Lady experiences her first “Buzz Lightyear Teaparty” moment, and it’s with none other than the Queen. Just wave...

My little sister always insisted my Logray & Teebo were stripey carebears when she stole them to play with,she even painted a heart on one with nail varnish once.
Only names i recall using are
'Growler' - Rancor
Snow guard - hoth stormie
Bigfoot - Snaggletooth
Greendo - Greedo
Man in Sandals - Gammo guard
Biscuits - Salacious Crumb
Also Had a thing about General madine being Lukes uncle & Obi1 being madines uncle.& the death star droid was 3pos cousin. :D
