Weapon of choice: the bowcaster, a crossbow firing magnetically accelerated projectiles, according to online resource Wookieepedia.Wookieepedia... :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Weapon of choice: the sniper rifle, presumably, although pictured holding the rather less precise AK-47 assault rifle for some reason.
Strategic advantages: concealment. Would be virtually invisible, for example, at a Star Wars convention, or in a vat of angel hair pasta.
Also sometimes confused with: Cruella De Vil after dry cleaning mishap; a compost heap.

*snort*

So, Bob...about your aim..

They just need to go to the groomers. A day at the spa & they will look great & will feel all that much better.

No, no, Bob, it's - PUUUURRRRRRRSIAN. ::waggle::

Quote from the WOOKIE section: Also sometimes confused with: the cowardly lion from The Wizard of Oz; Brian Blessed.

I don't think I'd ever confuse our Bob with Brian Blessed, but still... dats funneh, dat iz.
