You know what a Dewback is, right? What, you don’t? Dewbacks were large, four-legged, omnivorous, cold-blooded reptiles native to the Dune Sea of Tatooine. As such, they were well-adapted to the harsh desert climate. This and the fact that they could be easily domesticated, made them commonly employed as beasts of burden by both the inhabitants of the desert planet and the off-worlders wandering its dunes. Due to their numerous useful traits and versatility, they were quite possibly the most respected of all the creatures native to Tatooine. I mean, obviously. In the 1997 CGI-heavy re-issue of Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope), George Lucas decided that, while searching for the droids in the desert, the Stormtroopers needed to be riding water-buffalo-sized lizards, for some reason. This, of course, was not the worst offense committed by Lucas in his entirely unnecessary Episode IV revision (GREEDO DID NOT SHOOT FIRST, GEORGE!!!!!!!!!!!). Only true fans of the Star Wars universe will even recognize these dinosaur looking creatures; to others, seeing a Stormtrooper riding a Dewback would look like some kind of wacky Jedi/Jurassic Park mash-up. (Which, when you think about it, would be AWESOME). So if you want to root out the real fans, dress your pooch in this fantastic get-up and set him out in the neighborhood to find those pesky droids.
