I wonder about Lando as well. Does this mean he is out, or is this the major character list and other minor characters are still forthcoming. Maybe he will get a small part.

Plus, nothing says we still can't pick and choose which EU material to follow.
Plus like I said, I haven't seen anything that says ALL EU has been dumped into the abyss. Like the statement said, Rebels is already picking up on things from the 1980's even... Sienar Fleet Systems will "exist" as something, etc.
Till me, till a movie dumps on it, it's part of my world if I like it... After a movie dumps on it, I'll try fudging in what I enjoyed about the old EU that got fudged up.
Yeah I re-read the statement and it's basically that the EU's there till it's overwritten and even then, it's still there but just different. I'm curious to see what elements will be brought into NEW material. They said all elements of the EU will be available to people working on new material... That's kind of telling I think that EU isn't dead like is being claimed... It isn't. A storyline or character could get overtaken by the new stuff though.
I liked the line, "Lucasfilm always strived to keep the continuity in order" (paraphrased), when man they didn't strive for dick. They were constantly crow barring things together, and fitting things after they realized they dumped on a previous character or story plot... It happened constantly. They never gave a hoot by my estimation.
Okay, can someone clarify something for me - is ALL EU considered out?
I took StarWars.com's press release to mean that anything post-ROTJ was out. However, I'm seeing on different sites (especially JTA's reports) and from different interpretations people saying that all EU is dead. So I'm not sure exactly what's going on.
She's the heir in the sense that her father (right?) was the mad king, but that was a popular uprising was it not? So isn't there some equal POV that Robert's bastard is the rightful heir here?
I'd say he and Stannis hold more ground than Khalisi in that regard... Of course, I lean to what you say though, Ed. I prefer Khalisi at this point because she's not insane, seems like a good leader, etc. But in that world her family was kicked out by everyone, more or less.
I love this show.
In the breakdown of the episode they really did want people to feel something for Joffrey, but for me it was purely good riddance... He was a monster, and horrific. His mother's one of the few equally horrible people, to me. Kid or no... I felt no sympathy.
I feel sympathy for the actor... Poor kid gets ragged on by people he meets, and that sucks. I sometimes just don't get fandom.
True... I was thinking along the lines of the Martells, who believe Myrcella is the rightful heir.
Since this new F4 movie will be a reboot it seems likely they'll go back to Doom. Fox rebooted X-Men and went right back to Magneto as the villain so... Track record? I'd be more than happy to see a different villain, though.
I liked that the reboot of Spider-Man didn't go with Goblin but Lizard instead, seeing as how he was teased in two previous films. Even though we're getting Goblin in the second...eh.
Honestly, for the cost why not just sell the rights to Disney?
If you want to get upset about this movie - get upset about the fact that this production may end up being complete garbage because it's a rush-job to help 20th Century Fox retain Fantastic Four rights.
Maybe the movie is intended to be more like the Superfriends? Here's the official cast list:
Superman - Henry Cavill
Batman - Ben Affleck
Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot
Green Lantern - Dwyane Johnson
Robin - Joaquin Phoenix
Cyborg - Jerry Seinfeld
The Flash - Morgan Freeman
Aquaman - Joe Pesci
Hawkman - Ken Jeong
Lois Lane - Amy Adams
Lex Luthor - Jesse Eisenberg
Clay Face - Betty White
The Joker - Zach Galifianakis
Darkseid - Jon Heder
Catwoman - Rebel Wilson
Alfred - Jeremy Irons
I would totally pay $10 to see this train wreck come to life.
I was surprised to find that having true (high) shipping costs hasn't overly hindered my international auctions as much as I had thought.
Like I mentioned, I cleaned out my entire 12" collection including Taun Tauns and Speeder Bikes. All of them ended up shipping international where shipping was $55 or higher per item. I think it ended up driving bidders to buy lots of stuff and combine shipping.
I had a guy from Germany buy $500 worth of stuff as a result and pay $175 in shipping.
Not sure if shipping from Canada to international locations is similar or worse than US rates though.
