Han+Blaster: Win. Greedo+Blaster: Fail.

So in the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, there's a scene in which Han Solo is confronted by the bounty hunter Greedo about his debt to Jabba the Hutt. Han ended up shooting the bounty hunter with his blaster. All is well in the galaxy until the year 1995.

Apparently George Lucas believes that the very act of Han Solo shooting Greedo makes Han the equivalent of a cold hearted bastard, so he tweaked this scene in the 1995 (Special Edition) release of Star Wars so Greedo shot at Han first and MISSED at point blank range!

The original scene where Han shoots Greedo first

The Special Edition tweaked scene where Greedo shoots Han first, and misses

He further changed with the release of the 2004 Special Edition DVD, where Han and Greedo shoots at each other almost simultaneously, which is just plain stupid. This incident is famously known as "Han shot first".

Anyway, I messed around with Youtube and found these hilarious edits of the scene!

Well all of them are brilliant but which one is the most hilarious? I put my money on "Control Panel Shoots First" and "Greedo Shoots First". I found it funny that in "Han Solo doesn't have time for this", Greedo never got a chance to finish his sentence LOL.
