Guess that Movie Week 72: Star Wars Geek Edition

This week I am posting 15 pictures of minor characters in the 6 Star Wars movies, to win you just need to tell me the full name of the character. For instance if I had a picture of the Hammerheaded alien from Mos Eisley Cantina the correct answer would be Momaw Nadon not Hammerhead (Hammerhead is a nickname).

Here are the rules:
If you know or think you know an answer leave your guess in the comments section. As people guess I will grey it out and give them credit (using google to find the answers will disqualify you(...I know all and see all...), the person who has the most correct guesses each week will get a fun movie genius award to decorate their blog. Any person who wins 5 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) will earn a Movie Master award and must then refrain from guessing for 5 weeks.

Now on to the guessing!

1. Baron Von Pupi

2. Spin the Moon

3. Baron Von Pupi

4. Baron Von Pupi


6. Baron Von Pupi

7. Baron Von Pupi


9. Baron Von Pupi

10. Spin the Moon


12. Baron Von Pupi


14. Spin the Moon

Undead Film Critic, I completely dug the Alex Rogan reference. It made me inexplicably gleeful.

Man, when do I get to play again?

Doc said...

Other than the medical droid, I don't recognize any of these. I'll have to go back and watch all six movies now.

alternate names for this challenge:

Star Wars ancillary character edition


Star Wars figures that ended up in the bargain bin at CVS edition

Dean Wormer said...

I don't think this is a fair quiz at all. You said these characters were from Star Wars films but some of the characters are actually from those movies Lucas made years after Return of the Jedi was released.

Okay, I have the first trilogy on DVD (first chronologically), and this just shows I need to actually watch it, not just own it...

Only ones I could even guess at would be:

5: Biggs
10: Wedge

And I'm probably wrong as usual on my guesses.

As a side note, Biggs & Wedge have been cameo-ing in the Final Fantasy series of video-games for quite some time.

Jeb Porkins died last week, I heard.

Mike White said...

It always made me sad that all of these characters had to have names and backstories. They couldn't just be "dude in the background."

Porkins forever!

Chris Shadoian Fossett said...

Two corrections:

1. Porkins's first name is "Jek," not "Jeb."

2. The actor who played Porkins, William Hootkins, died in 2005.

Becca said...

Yeah I agree with you but I thought the contest might be too easy. I was wrong, it was too hard. Long live Walrus Man and Hammer Head!

Duros & Shadoian-
I thought Porkins had passed a few years ago but honestly didn't remember.

And you are right it's Jek, I had Jek written in my answer key and was going to give Spin credit anyways cause he was sooo darn close and then when I typed it in the comments I typed the wrong name. Booo Becca Boooo!

Spin the Moon said...

Aww. And my Star Wars shame spiral continues...

My 15 year-old self visited me in my dreams last night and shook his Star Wars knowledge-filled head sadly.
