As Anakin and Palpatine walk to the box to watch the opera, they pass by a blue-skinned George Lucas.
Why It's Cool:
After essentially creating one of the largest and most popular universes in sci-fi, Lucas finally got to play a part in it. Not only that, but he became a character in his own right - Baron Papanoida, who was expanded upon in the
cartoon series and, yes, even got his own action figure.
