Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!

I have to look at the whole "3 picture deal" thing with a degree of skepticism.  I mean, isn't it pretty standard at this point for studios to sign talent to multi-picture deals in the event that one is a tremendous success?  That way they secure the actors... just in case.  Lots of the actors involved in the Marvel cinematic universe were signed to multi-picture contracts.  I think that the executives at Disney probably pushed for these sort of contracts since the MCU now has some 11 films under it's umbrella, and they seem to have similar plans for the Star Wars universe.

As for this being a trilogy?  I think that might be wishful thinking on the part of the writer.  But what about other projects?  I could see Han Solo being worked into a Boba Fett film if that project makes it's way out of development.

Interesting read.  It doesn't sound like it's set in stone at the moment, but an interesting prospect.

Enjoy whilst possible:

Fan trailer.  ):

BTW, the Official Star Wars channel on YouTube has posted THE ROGUE ONE PANEL from Star Wars Celebration Europe in London.

The hull number on Discovery seems to predate that of Enterprise on TOS by a significant timespan.  Discovery's designation is NCC-1031.  The Enterprise's hull number is NCC-1701.  So it seems that this ship may be from at least a generation before that of the TOS.

What gets me about this series?  It's reportedly going to be available on Netflix (which I have), but *NOT* in the United States or Canada.  And I really don't want to sign up for another streaming video service.  I feel like I'm being nickle and dimed to death as it is!

Actress Brie Larson has been confirmed to play Captain Marvel!  The news came at the Marvel Cinematic Universe panel at SDCC last night, and Brie Larson received a standing ovation following the announcement.

USS Discovery First Look.

Ugly. What was the last decent looking ship? Voyager?

The aft section of the ship looks... Klingon!

It looks like there might be some kind of action/Nerf feature on the AT-ACT.  I just looked at some of the Galactic Hunter pictures that Dan Curto reposted, and there's some sort of hatch on the nose of the AT-ACT.  Hmmmmm....

Toy Ark has some pretty good images of the entire ROGUE ONE diorama.  And I can distinctly make out both the Shore Trooper as well as the Armor Trooper.

Glad to see that a couple of figures on my own list got confirmed by Hasbro today.  I'm looking forward to both Qui-Gon Jinn and the Emporer's Royal Guard in a big way.  And it looks like they did them pretty well.

Still, I am very surprised to see that Jaina Solo won the poll.  She really got that much support?  Perhaps I personally underestimated the popularity of an NJO character like hers.

Looking interesting so far, albeit all of the figures look like they're 5 POA.  From what I can see it looks like these are the figures on tap:

-Imperial Stormtrooper
-Imperial Death Trooper
-Imperial Shore Trooper

-Jyn Erso
-Imperial Astromech droid
-Imperial Armor Trooper (not sure of the exact name here.  But this looks like the same type of trooper that's in that Hover Tank in the Jedah scenes from the trailer)

Yoda brings it up, too.  He said in the PT "Hard to see the Dark Side is".  And Palpatine was able to hide in plain sight from the Jedi as well.   But that seemed more like an active attempt to deceive the Jedi.

Other things over the years have come into question.  Like in KOTOR with both Revan and the Jedi Exile.  Both of them were supposedly cut off from The Force by the Jedi.  I don't think the story group has said at this point if either of those stories are canon or not.  But those plot points from the games do make you wonder a bit about The Force.

The AT-ACT is now on display in the Hasbro booth as part of a pretty extensive diorama.  I think we'll probably see some close-up images when the collecting site reporters wrap up the sessions that they're sitting in currently.

That's a pretty cool lineup for the Black Series 6" figure line.  I'm happy with pretty much all of those.  I'm a little puzzled/disappointed that Jaina Solo won the poll, but whatever.

The AT-ACT looks pretty cool.  And I'm actually a little tempted to get one because the smartphone control and walking feature are things we've just never seen in a 3.75" figure system vehicle before.  The removable bunker and 3 x pack in figures are a nice feature, too.

Disappointed by the small 3.75" figure showing.  But it seems like they are very clearly holding back for the ROGUE ONE line.

The guy who advocated the end of obscure super-articulated figures because they BORED him, promotes the set as SA figures of characters available for the first time.

Ugh.  I still remember some of that, and the crazed rationalizations that "5POA figures make me feel nostalgic for the Kenner vintage line!"

...Because progress was such a bad thing.   ::)
