(4) Lando Calrissian vs. (13) Shaak Ti

As expected, Master Mace Windu rolls into the next round.

Today, how about a little Colt 45? The coolest gangster in Cloud City vs. Shaak Ti.

Voting slipped a bit yesterday. Let's get the voting back up. Remember to keep coming back and spread the work please.

(4) Lando Calrissian

Lando Calrissian is introduced in the fifth film, Empire Strikes Back. We learn that he and Han Solo, and Chewie, were old pals and that Calrissian was once the proud owner of the Millennium Falcon before losing it to Solo. In Empire, Calrissian is an administrator on Cloud City - and in order to keep the Empire off his back he accepts Darth Vader's promise and uses Solo and Leia to lure Luke Skywalker to the City. We do find out that Calrissian isn't such a bad guy, and he gets his revenge on Vader by destroying the Death Star II.

(13) Shaak Ti

Shaak Ti was a member of the Jedi Council in the prequel trilogy. She was also present during battles on Geonosis and Kamino. Ti, like so many of these Jedis, is much more present in the Clone Wars cartoon. Looking into her character, Ti was actually filmed dying in two separate scenes during Revenge of the Sith. Once at the hands of General Grievous, right in front of Obi-Wan and Anakin, and another scene during the rise of Darth Vader, he destroys her while she is in meditation in the Jedi Temple. Neither death, however, is used and Shaak Ti is presumed to have been one of the few Jedi to have survived the Code 66 attack.
