The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

Will John Hollis be CGI or do you think they recast the role? 

CGI head on a body double, Paul Walker-style.

But will he say "Guilty" to an aged Valorum/Terence Stamp?

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015
« on: April 17, 2015, 09:03 AM »
Those aren't new... they've been showing them off since NYCC last October.

3.75" Mission Series Rebels Ahsoka and Rebels Vader are the only figures being show live for the first time...  so far.

Any links? Haven't seen those yet...

SSG has pics of the Hasbro booth.  The only reveals there are the Ahsoka prototype, a TBS 6" figure packaging mockup and packaged versions of Han in Carbonite, Commander Doom, Captain Rex, Commander Thorn and Commander Wolffe.

I am so glad that I had today off.  I would have gotten NOTHING done at work today.

It was fantastic to see the cast onstage together.  R2-D2 looks fantastic, but I am really astounded by the fact that they built a functional BB-8.  Just amazing!

And the trailer?  Whoa.  Where to start?  Crashed Star Destroyers?  The new Stormtroopers?  Leia being handed Luke's original lightsaber?  The Falcon in action?  Luke meditating and providing the voiceover?  Kylo Ren?  But the capper was clearly Han Solo and Chewbacca back aboard the Falcon.

I was trying to sync my iPad with my flatscreen with the YouTube app, but I got a message in the app saying that the Force Awakens event would not be viewable on that device (the flatscreen).  What gives?

I'm really glad that they decided to livestream the presentation.  And from looking at the program schedule it seems that they're not only holding the presentation in a single hall, but they're also simulcasting it in other event halls throughout the convention center.  So where in past Celebrations maybe only 3000 or so very lucky people who could get into that hall got to see the presentation, now almost everyone will get a chance to see the presentation as it happens.  And streaming it live is fantastic for those of us who couldn't make it to this Celebration.

More promo images have leaked out from Celebration, and the doors aren't even open yet.  Check out some of these images of Kylo Ren, what may be Captain Phasma and the new look for the Stormtroopers.  There's even a glimpse of a new type of Imperial Shuttle:

Rumor has it that a third wave is in fact in the works.  But I think Funko is waiting for more of wave 2 to sell through before presenting it to collectors.  The retail presence has been okay, and there has been some stock at TRU as well.  I'm just wondering what major characters they would go with for a third wave.

What about Ser Arys Oakheart?!?!?

That probably came from a press screener.  When shows launch it's common practice to give the media DVD/Blu Ray screeners or access to a private website with the first few episodes. The fact that 4 episodes leaked is the giveaway in this case. And I bet HBO is going to find out who leaked these episodes and sue their ass.

Season 5 kicks off tonight.  I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also a little torn.  The series has been diverging from the books more and more.  And following the non-book events of the Hound's duel with Brienne of Tarth, I really don't know what to expect with the HBO series.  Especially since it seems very likely that the series will pass the novels.  I am looking forward to seeing Dorne and the Sand Snakes, but I'm also curious about how that storyline may differ from the books.

When I got a new laptop I was setting up my music on iTunes. I had downloaded a few songs from the iTunes Store but couldn't find them in the music I had transferred from my old laptop. I went on the iTunes Store to find the missing songs and was able to download those previously purchased songs for free.  iTunes recognizes your account and gives you access to those files that you've previously bought for another device.  It just takes a while for the concept to come around.

Details about the next trailer have leaked out today.  Spoiler warnings do apply.  Speculation has it that this second trailer will likely debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim later this month.  And it's also very likely to be attached to another Disney film, Avengers - Age of Ultron which will be released in the U.S. on May 1st.

That's a pretty awesome bracket contest.  Surprised to see some of the chains that are on there, especially since some of them are pretty regional.

I was able to order the Hera Mission Series set from HTS last week. Too bad I just missed out on this particular promotion.  I hope some of the new Black Series 6" figures turn up on HTS soon.
