I just saw the movie tonight.  I had been a fan of the director after seeing Trainspotting, and the clips I saw of this movie looked interesting.

It's definitely got a very stark feel to it.  Just the fact that they were able to get the streets of London as deserted as they did is remarkable.  Well, with the exception of one guy I saw on the street as Jim was wandering off from the hospital.

This movie was actually shot in 24p High-Def, like Attack Of The Clones.  But in this case, the HD look adds to the stark atmosphere.  The lower-res (than film) image quality gave it a more realistic feel.  Especially since the lighting was pretty spare, too.

The lack of music really added to the eeriness.  Silence can be truly deafening.  Especially when an infected crashes through the windows after it's been dead quiet.

The premise seemed to work for me.  Animal rights activists breaking into labs does happen.  And animal experimentation happens, too.  And given how many bio-toxins there are in the world, natural and man-made, the premise of the film seems really plausible to me.

Truth be told, I found the soliders to be more scary than the infected.  I found them far more dangerous, since their intellect remained intact, but their morals were thrown out the window.  The infected were much easier to figure out in terms of motivation.

So basically, I enjoyed it, if that wasn't obvious enough already.

Well, I thought that maybe the Clone Troopers had some kind of neck ball joint...nope!  It turns out that the Clone Trooper helmets are mounted much like the ones on the bootleg Clone Troopers.  They'll pop off if you try, but thankfully go back on pretty easily, too.

We both saw a object "Floating" across
the sky.

Skip ahaead 20 years........

I was living in Victoria, BC at the time.

This picture of the "UFO" was taken in Brazil about
15 years after I saw it in Canada  20 years before.

Nick, feel free to PM it to me, and I'll let ya' know if it's OK to post!   ;)

Matt, I actually told it to one of my bandmates and our recording studio manager tonight, and I really don't think it would be good here.  It's really kind of graphic.

I've got a hilarious one, but I'm afraid it might be a little too risque for the forum.  Most people I tell it to wind up nearly on the floor in laughter, but I'm hesitant to mention it here.

I don't mind it either way to be honest.  I am getting them no matter what.   I still think each Jedi should have his/her own lightsaber.  We can always take it out of their hand to sit on the counci and discuss Jedi business.  Oh well, it's not a big deal anyway.  



Precisely.  I'm just happy that they're doing these things, and the figures look pretty decent.  I hope availability on these are good, and that the screen scenes will continue for some time.  I've been deabating how many of these I'm gonna buy, and if I'm going to try making the entire council chamber.

I think Hasbro's chain of thought was "well, we never see the Jedi with their lightsabers in the Council Chamber.  They might look kind of dopey sitting down with lightsabers ignited".  Or at least something to that effect.

Definitely anticipating the movie.  Impatiently?  Not really.  I've got lots to do between now and then.  I'll start getting really frenzied when the Giftpack edition of The Two Towers comes out on DVD.

The sculpts are pretty good.  The waist/utility belts aren't the greatest, but it's in large part because of the nature of the poses.  Everything else in the sculpt is great IMO.

Yep.  The only Jedi left lightsaber-less is Mace Windu, since there haven't been any purple lightsabers thrown in the accessory packs.

I can not wait to get all 4 of these scenes.  Now the council figures won't have lightsabers correct?  

Well, if you have the EPISODE I Naboo (1 green lightsaber) or Gungan accessory pack (one blue lightsaber), or the SAGA Arena Conflict accessory set (this one includes two lightsabers), you can start equipping the new Jedi with some of those lightsabers.

Will these still mix in well with the Preview Clone?

Anyone worried that the paint jobs on the different colored Clones might not be too great?

 :P

Good questions Chewy.  I just got the three pack during the week.  And right now, I'm comparing them to one of my preview Clone Troopers.

Obiviously, there's the cosmetic paint differences, with the Preview Clone Trooper being dirty, and the 3-Pack Clones being clean.  Aside from that, one of the biggest differences?  A slight paint difference on the helmet (on the mouth grill, and a ring around the top/back), backplate, and stomach sections of the armor.  The preview Clones have some grey detail paint on those sections, while the 3-pack Clones are all white.  I think they're still fairly interchangeable.  But I think the clean Clone Troopers will fit in better in dioramas with the Clone Trooper Pilot and Clone Trooper (red trim) because those versions are also clean.

I'm especially happy that they went with the three Jedi they chose for the second Jedi Council scene.  The speculation had been that we'd get a previously released council member and two new ones.  Releasing three all-new Jedi Council members is a good move.

I was seriously thinking about joingin KebCo's One of every figure club.  But, it looks like things have changed, and new stuff is finally hitting retail.
