Dengar for me, too.  Gotta love the comments on the SW site.

They're on par with the comments section of any news site.

Wow.  Just looking at the current results, and Darth Talon is leading with Jaina Solo in a close second place.

Seriously?  Well, GO DENGAR!!!!

Check out some highlights from the Future Filmmakers panel at SWCE regarding the Han Solo anthology film with directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord.  And they also bring out the officially announced lead in the project, actor Alden Ehrenreich.

Check out this this Flicks And The City video from the 'Future Filmmakers' panel at SWCE.  Episode VIII director Rian Johnson sat down with LFL head Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm story group members Kiri Hart and Pablo Hidaldo to discuss the next installment in the Sequel Trilogy.

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" Jungle/Space/Snow/Desert Line

I'm hoping to pick up another unmasked Kylo Ren.  I just picked up another 3.75" Black Series Kylo for the express purposes of a head swap to depict him during the duel on Starkiller base.

That behemoth said he was one of the Bendu.  And that goes right back to the original Star Wars script, where the Jedi were known as the Jedi Bendu knights.  I get the sense that this part of the story might involve Force users who are neither Jedi nor Sith, which certainly seems to open things up a bit.  Especially since the Knights of Ren appear to be Force users who are Dark Siders, but not affiliate with the Sith.

Not to go too off topic, but I wonder if Maz Kanata is one of them.  She said she's no Jedi, but she knows the Force, and apparently there is a deleted scene where she could wield the Force.  I wonder if that is something that will be explored further in the movies.


I think characters like Maz, the Bendu, Snoke and the Knights of Ren are all being used to show that the Force has many practitioners.  And things like the Church of the Force, of which Lor San Tekka was a  practitioner, are meant to show how the Force is a pretty universal concept.  And the rumors surrounding Jehda in ROGUE ONE seem like they might reinforce the concept.  All of that does serve to broaden out our perception of The Force, instead of it being this binary situation with the Jedi representing the light side and the Sith on the dark side.



No ysalamiri. (somehow the outight no to Mara Jade led to that without exposition as to why no Mara Jade)


There was this image of Thrawn from the trailer that seems like a very overt nod to the Ysalamiri:

I've seen Rey get down to about $12 or $13 recently on Amazon.  But the wave with unmasked Kylo Ren and the FO Stormtrooper Commander?  I don't think I ever saw it at retail.  I bought mine through Amazon or HTS when they were available at MSRP, and those went very quickly.

I was a bit surprised to see all of those things wedged into the trailer, too.  Plus there's the return of Fenn Rau and the Mandalorians.  Oh, and the Dark Saber, too!

I'm also curious to see where things are going with Ezra, that holocron and Maul.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Rogue One Black Series 6inch
« on: July 16, 2016, 02:57 PM »
The name of the planet "Jedah" seems like it could be important.  Especially considering some of the rumors surrounding a plot point in the movie that the Empire is mining Khyber crystals (the same crystals Jedi use in their lightsabers) for the purpose of powering or focusing the beams of the Death Star's super-laser weapon.  Rumor also has it that the hover tanks are transporting some of these crystals in the large orange crates, and the AT-ACT's are employed in transporting some of these crystals or other weapons components as well.  So could "Jedah" be some sort of planet that was important to the Jedi?

I saw something to the effect that this Leia is not a final product.  The facial portrait wasn't the final version, and there's additional stitching that's to be added to the hood.  I have to try to track down the source of those comments.

Rogue One / Re: Taking Back Our Hobby

Paul Harrison (not his real name, btw) is a clown.  I was surprised to see the article about the rumored Poe & Finn thing, but in a way I wasn't surprised to see that FROM HIM.  Mostly because it always seems that certain people exercise an extreme amount of disdain or loathing from that which they *MAY* see within themselves, and that's usually accompanied by this horrendous sort of overreaction.

Having worked on covering a couple of Toy Fairs with the aforementioned person, I got that vibe.  I've also heard tales of someone who *MAY HAVE* overheard PH commenting at another toy industry event about how tight another gentleman's trousers happened to be in the crotch area.  The term "package" may have even been used in that exchange, as the gentleman who was the object of this conversation was being objectified.  Hmmmm????  I am not one to judge homosexuals.  I count several gays and lesbians among some of my closest friends.  But if you're going on some social commentary tear about gay people, maybe you need to take a look in the mirror first.

As for the Jyn figure?  If it offends you SO MUCH little man-child, then GET THE **** OUT OF THE HOBBY.  She had that scarf in the trailer.  Where were your xenophobic comments then?  Don't try to turn a website about toys into the collecting equivalent of Fox News.

This is the ROGUE ONE - Black Series 6" Jyn Erso figure that was shown during the ROGUE ONE panel.
