Obi Wan Kenobi cosplay with a twist...

This picture is a pretty sweet cos play effort of fan favourite Obi Wan. I think the clear attention to detail is amazing...

The most famous nip slip in Star Wars history. Actually, it's the only one!

Oola from Return of the Jedi nip slip

This post is about nipples.

There, we said it. Nipples.

Nipples and a certain wardrobe malfunction and we're not talking about Miss Rhythm Nation, Janet Jackson and her deliberate Superbowl breast display with Monsieur Timberlake.

At this point it is indeed fair to ask why on Warth (!) is this Star Wars blog even entertaining the thought of doing a post on nipples.

This is not Playboy Magazine after all, our dear readers seriously come for the articles. And the character quotes.

And of course the shapely form of a Twilek.

What if I was to tell you that Return of the Jedi actually features a nipple slip?

It's the most famous wardrobe malfunction in the entire galaxy!

So here goes the tale.

Cast your mind back to Jabba's Palace in Return of the Jedi. Jabba takes umbrage of a sort with his green slave dancer Oola and as Jabba draws his Twi'lek girl closer to him by pulling her chains, she resists as she knows what's coming - her end.

During this struggle, her great green breast comes out from under her costume, revealing all.

It's a blink and you'll miss the flash moment, however when people were able to rent Return of the Jedi on VHS in the mid eighties, they were able to watch the scene in slow motion and get an eyeful.

Legend has it that this is the most paused moment in home rental video history!

Don't believe us? Check out this video:

Unlike how Carrie Fisher had to tape her breasts down in ANH, someone clearly forgot the gaffer tape on set the day they filmed Oola!

How many words does Darth Maul say in the Phantom Menace?

How many words does Darth Maul say?


That's right, Darth Maul only says 31 words in The Phantom Menace.

This is attributable to George Lucas trimming down the role he had in mind for the character prior to filming.

That 31 is 27 words less than the 58 words Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke as the Terminator in the first movie of that franchise!
