That these adult "dress-ups" keep happening makes me ponder the parlous state of American commercial TV and Hollywood cinema and the maturity levels of those captivated by same...

Spock; Darth you gotta let it go and get up Darth Maul; NO! I was the first Darth, the best, the OD! (oringinal Darth)I'm not moving until someone here acknowledges it! Han Solo; There's nothing like a good blaster Indiana; Just shoot him already, nice knowing you Darth Obi One; Kids, that's why I never had 'em. There's nothing like a good old hooker.

It's Yellow Lantern, arch nemesis of Green Lantern.

Actually, that guy with the red skin and the yellow costume is Sinestro, Green Lantern's main opponent. :)

That is not yellow lantern, that is sinestro. One time member of the Green Lantern Corps, now enemy of the Corps and leader of the Sinestro Corps.

Looks like it might be "Ravemaster," on SciFi (excuse me, SyFy) Channel Monday nights.

Hi, In slide 3 AND 11= The Master Chief from Halo Slide 3 is a rather small Master Chief as he is supposed to be over 7 feet tall. The Blue lady looks to be Cortana , The Pillar of Autumn's ( USNC cruiser)AI. If you have not ever played this game it is a must for any Sci Fi fan. The story is phenominal ! WHERE is the MOVIE? Halo ROCKS !

At first glance I thought it was Die Fledermaus from the Tick but I suppose it could be either one.
