Advice from Lego heroes: Always shoot first

Watch this fun short in which Lego versions of Star-Lord and Malcolm Reynolds teach Han Solo that if you want to stay alive, you always shoot first.

If you want to survive as a hero in a galaxy far, far away, you have to be a bit liberal with your blaster.

That's the lesson from this short video from Brotherhood Workshop, in which Lego versions of Star-Lord from "Guardians of the Galaxy" and Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds from "Firefly" teach Han Solo that if you want to live to tell your tale, you must always shoot first.

In the clip, Star-Lord, Mal and Han Solo are sitting around a table at the cantina in Mos Eisley discussing gun battles and the benefits of being the first guy to fire. Han Solo was a bit apprehensive of this philosophy, citing some code of honor requiring that the bad guy must shoot first.

Fortunately for Luke, Leia and the Rebel Alliance, Star-Lord and Mal are able to convince Han Solo that it's a good idea to always shoot first, just in time for his fated meeting with the bounty hunter Greedo. And, well, I think we all know how that meeting turns out.
