HK-47 “Request: Please click the link to see why HK is such a wonderful droid, Meatbag. Else you will be viciously shot and then killed.”

General Grievous A character that HUNTS JEDI FOR SPORT! And He’s a really unique looking cyborg.

The Clone Commandos Coolest Space soldiers EVER!

Imperial Probe Droid There’s something REALLY cool about this droid I’ve always loved.

Captain Phasma A badass female in practical armor. Also she has a cape!


There are all I can think of ATM. Might add more later. IDK

Friendly reminder that Han Solo:

Is extremely intelligent, resourceful, clever, and quick-thinking under pressure

  • Comes up with the idea of using the dead tauntaun’s body heat to keep Luke from freezing to death on Hoth
  • Realizes that taking out the imperial probe droid was too easy and that it must have had a self-destruct, which results in the rebels’ evacuation and preparation for battle
  • Figures out that the “cave” is actually a giant space slug when it could have just been an unstable, humid asteroid
  • Comes up with the plan to hide on the star destroyer and then float away with the garbage, which required him to a.) be familiar enough with the vessel to know that there was a blind spot, b.) know that the ship would dump its trash before going to lightspeed, and c.) THINK OF THOSE THINGS while being pursued and fired upon with his life, Chewie’s, and Leia’s on the line AND realize that the imps would be thrown off if he feigned an attack and all assume they’d vanished, a completely brilliant and incredibly calculated, not to mention well-executed, plan that he came up with on the spot
  • Devises the plan to deceive the imperial officers and troops on Endor into walking into a trap and subsequently blowing up the shield generator at the crucial moment when the rebel fleet was facing defeat, enabling the destruction of the second Death Star

Is brave and courageous and heroic (despite his efforts to convince everyone otherwise)

  • Orders Chewbacca to stay behind him when they fall under fire in the detention center
  • Creates a diversion for Luke and Leia on the Death Star by charging at a bunch of stormtroopers 
  • Turns around to cover Luke during the Battle of Yavin, risking his own life even though he was in the clear to leave and take his reward and pay off Jabba, enabling Luke to destroy the Death Star and saving other planets from its destructive power
  • Goes out into the freezing conditions on Hoth to look for Luke even though his own chances of survival were slim
  • Risks his life to rescue Leia during the evacuation of Hoth when she won’t abandon her post
  • Immediately pulls a blaster on DARTH VADER without a moment’s hesitation while simultaneously grabbing Leia’s hand and keeping her behind him
  • Thinks only of Leia’s safety and wellbeing when he’s about to be frozen in carbonite, possibly killed, and delivered to Jabba the Hutt
  • Agrees to personally lead the extremely dangerous and risky assault on the shield generator on Endor
  • Volunteers to escort Finn to Starkiller base despite the risk to his own life by making his landing AT LIGHT SPEED, stepping up to help Leia and the Resistance and the entire galaxy 

Is sensitive and caring and selfless

  • Doesn’t take Chewie for granted and volunteer him for the Battle of Endor even though the wookiee had a life-debt to him
  • Comforts Leia despite his belief that she’s in love with Luke
  • Offers to step aside despite his own love for her so that she and Luke can be happy together
  • Leaves Leia despite being desperately in love with her and returning to his old empty way of life all because he believes that his presence causes her pain
  • Offers to do ANYTHING for his son and displays his love and caring and forgiveness of his child as his last act in life when Kylo Ren kills him

Is a skilled mechanic (see: modifications and repairs to the Falcon), a great shot (ie: taking out numerous stormtroopers and tie fighters, referred to as a good fighter by Rieekan, performance on Endor, etc etc), a talented pilot (Kessel run, flying through an asteroid field, evading imperial fire multiple times), and “a natural leader.”

Has one of the most complex character arcs in the Star Wars universe, displaying character development from film to film on multiple levels (relation to other characters, belief in the force, participation in the civil war of the galaxy, demonstration of selflessness, etc etc).

IN CONCLUSION: Han Solo doesn’t get enough credit for his intelligence, ingenuity, bravery, integrity, or his good heart and writing him off as a cocky ladies’ man who blunders his way out of trouble demonstrates a poor understanding of his character.
