(4) Greedo vs. (13) Stormtrooper

Welcome back. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter/Passover...or just another wonderful Sunday.

In our last matchup it was no surprise as Jabba the Hutt rolls into the next round with a sweep against 4-LOM.

In the other matchup, however, a bit of a surprise as Dengar slips past Aurra Sing in a bit of an upset. Though, every year it seems a 12 defeats a 5 in the NCAA Tournamnet, I guess this was ours.

New matchups today. Don't forget to vote for both.

(4) Greedo

Greedo is first introduced in The Phantom Menace in a deleted scene. He quarrels with Anakin Skywalker about cheating, but the fight is broken up by Qui-Gon Jinn. We later learn that Greedo has become a bounty hunter, mostly on the payroll of Jabba the Hutt. Greedo meets up with Han Solo in the cantina at Mos Eisley where he demanded Jabba's money. Solo, who doesn't have the money, takes Greedo out with a blaster shot under the table.

(13) Stormtrooper

The Stormtrooper is the second coming of a Clone Trooper. We find out that Darth Tyranus has secretly applied to get a clone army built in Attack of the Clones. The clones are modeled after the bounty hunter, Jango Fett. Throughout the second and most of the third film, the Clone Troopers are part of the Rebel army. But, after Code 66 they were brought into the Empire by Darth Vader and Darth Sidious. There they became the Stormtroopers and fought for the Empire until the conclusion of Return of the Jedi.
