Twin sisters would’ve been _much_ more interesting

The GQG goes on! This question is from duriel.

Identify the character in (1) and the old chap on the left in (2).

Also, who/what did (1) eventually become?

Only (partially) cracked by Tathagata Chatterjee!

Answer :

(1) is an action figure of Starkiller, the original female protagonist of the Star Wars series. Starkiller later became male (Luke Starkiller) and was then bowdlerized by the movie production company (becoming Luke Skywalker).

(2) is Ralph McQuarrie, the guy who did all the concept art (including Luke) for the original Star Wars (and the original BSG and many many other SF sagas)

    uke Starkiller

    This is the early (female) concept of luke skywalker/starkiller, went on to become the luke skywalker we know today. these dolls were made to commemorate the 30 years of Star Wars.

    Ralph Mc Quarrie (guy who created much of the concept art for early starwars and bsg tv series).

    Whoops, Luke Starkiller (not uke Starkiller)


  4. first pic is one of the Skywalker twins. Um.. I am guessing this one eventually became Luke? Or is this just Leia?

    the second one looks like Arthur c Clarke.
