— Look, sir, droids.
Great Heep was nominated and gained status as part of Wookieepedia's fourth "Barn-burner," focusing on articles related to droids. The barn-burner ran during May and June 2012.

So if this thing was originally an Abominor, how'd it end up in the regular galaxy, and why was it allied with the Empire? What had it been doing all that time?

There must be a better way of saying this: Set up by the Empire, it immediatly began raping the planet of its natural resources. -Hollis 20:43, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

  • No. It's stylistic writing, and it's true. The original meaning of "rape"—and I quote—is "The act of seizing and carrying off by force; abduction." Cutch 00:07, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

This thing reminds me of the house robots from Robot Wars. Mainly Mr. Psycho and Sir Killalot.--Allurade Dendra 23:51, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

What's with the name? Edit

Isn't there any other name we can give this article? Great Heep sounds weird. TIE fighter ace 22:18, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Well that is his no. —Jaymach Ral'Tir (talk) 23:20, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
    • A 'heap' used to be slang for a hot rod back in the '40s, due to their cobbled-together appearance. Racers used to go to old junk heaps to pick parts to build cars from scratch, resulting in some unappealing, but high-performing rods.Tocneppil 20:55, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
