Geez, I was a lot nicer than that:

I just asked:

"Is she still in the original shrinkwrap?"

and

"If I win the girl do I also get the underwear?"

Not really a laughable description, but just a strange unintended D&D / Star Wars crossover.  I guess the early 80's were a much less litigious era.

Heh, heh. Very useful, yeah!

Hmm... too high for me (vs. $2.29 @ Noble Knight), but never have picked up one of those 'for fun'.

*g*. Good luck to the winner of http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8795922121 that their GM (or players) dun string them up. :P

   I don't think anyone actually knew the word "Sith" in the early 80's.  Does anyone know when the Star Wars people may have first used the term?

   As far as I know, "Sith" is a product of the 1990's, and the word never appeared in any of the original three movies.

There was promotional material as far back as the original movie in 1977 (and even the Marvel comics from that era) that referred to Vader as a "Sith lord" ... of course, this had about as much impact as calling something a "wamp rat," since neither actually made an appearance in the movie. It just sounded like some interesting word-candy.

As far as which movie was the first to feature "Sith" uttered on the screen ... no idea. If I had to take a flyer, I'd say that maybe it was Return of the Jedi. Maybe.

Did Yoda refer to the Sith in Empire?

I think that "Sith" is a procuct of the literature from outside of the movies.

In the scripts for all three original movies, Vader is referred to as the/a lord of the Sith in the stage direction.  It isn't used in the dialog of the films though.

Interesting detail.

Can they claim a copyright on unpublished material like a script referrence?

They can certainly claim copyright on unpublished material.  All of the unpublished manuscripts that Rob Kuntz that were recently sold here were under copyright.  

The relevant law isn't in this case isn't copyright; it's trademark.  If the mark wasn't registered and only appeared in the stage direction of an unpublished script, Lucas would have had a hard time claiming trademark infringement.  Of course that doesn't mean he couldn't have tried.

According to the USPTO, Lucas applied for the Sith trademark in 1997.

The first time Sith are mentioned by name, IIRC, is when trade federation Viceroy Gamray is speaking to the image of Sidious.

Gamray "My Lord, it's impossible to find the ship. It's out of our range."
Sidious " Not for a Sith. This is my apprentice, Darth Maul. He will find your lost ship."
Gamray " This is getting out of hand. Now there are two of them"
(other Chinese-imitation alien) "We should not have made this bargain"

I might be a bit off on the exact dialogue. Memory is not what it used to be.
