TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?

Yeah, lots of detail there...  Guessing Yoda keeps, to himself, who he's communing with.  Surprised to here where all he's going and it seems like the series wraps up a lot of things with him leading into ROTS.

It looks like there's a lot of people rallying with the Emperor to go against the Jedi.  I kind of wondered about some of those species and where their loyalties ultimately lay.

I liked the appearance that they get back to a focus on the war...  I really REALLY hated how the show had basically gotten away from the main conflict of the era, especially in the last couple seasons.  It felt like after the Geonosis arc things really were focused on specific characters who seemed to have nothing to do with the overall war going on and that just was annoying to me.  Now, they seem like they're going to try somewhat to get back to that, and tie it into how the whole thing began with Dyas and everything.

I saw Yakface on twitter retweeted a translation of the Aurabesh page on Sifo Dyas that's in the trailer.  Pretty neat and something I would've totally been doing myself tonight. :P

It's interesting to see what he was up to though, and to see who the hell he was.

I like the new people too...  Daisy Dukes?  Eh, it's Atlanta...  It's hot...  I'm sure she either has, or picks up some pants for the winter.  It doesn't bother me (in any way  :D) really.

I can buy the nerd not knowing how to shoot...  Honestly, how many people have you met who are just inept at certain stuff, especially the maybe overly intelligent who lack common sense...  He yelled, they ignored, he tried to do it himself...  I mean, stuff like that doesn't bother me because people like that exist.  How he'd survive this long?  I guess Abraham or folks like him.  Took balls to tell Abraham, after killing the unkillable truck, that he's smarter and to do what he says, but yeah...  I dunno.  Not everyone is going to be Darryl or Rick, so there have to be Milton and Eugenes too I guess.

I liked the character development, or perhaps reinforcement in some cases, from this episode...  Rick, who people maybe were beginning to doubt, now shows you again why you shouldn't doubt him.  He kicks some biker douche's ass and kills him, all with what I assume are broken ribs at the very least.  Not shabby for a guy who just 2 weeks ago his kid was saying he was a loser and he didn't need him anymore...  Rick's still scary when Rick wishes to be.  I know some don't think that was important but I think it is.

Michonne bonding with Carl, that's good development...  Character relationships expanding and all that jazz.  Setting up a big reunion with Judith maybe too, which was nice. 

Tyrese/Abraham seem like they'd be an interesting relationship if they meet up...  Two big dudes, different personalities though.

The thing I found odd, and it's maybe just his personality, but Abraham trying to MAKE Glenn go with him...  how would that possibly work?  He'd never be into your crusade if you make him go, so what's the end-game there?

I haven't watched Talking Dead yet but I'm sure I missed something because every TD seems to point out some little detail I didn't catch.

I liked seeing Rick kind of "back" though.  At the very least he has his crap together a little more than he did.  Guys eating your canned chili will get you back into reality real quick.

Wow that's bigger than I thought it looked, but in the last video they did that cockpit's as roomy as the Falcon's which I figured it wasn't nearly that large from earlier images... 

So it's bigger than the Falcon.  I can't see Hasbro doing ANYTHING as big as the BMF, so this I would guess will almost surely be smaller than that ship was.  And if the MTT's any indication it'll be interesting to see what direction Hasbro chooses to go with the toy since price matters, but subject matter is a bigger player here.

I have to think they're playing their cards close to the vest to see how the show's launch goes.

Yeah, by far my least favorite realistic interpretation of a TCW character.  I felt the sculpt wasn't bad...  I think the last TVC Mace we got was the best likeness, but this wasn't bad.  The skin color seemed off to me by a lot though, and it just felt half-hearted with the logos missing and stuff.  I'd have dug it if the helmet included the detonator inside too, maybe some kind of TCW accessory to make you really feel the figure was special

He's been one of the easier Wave 3 figures to get, and he's not bad, but not great.  Just eh.  Fills a purpose I guess.  I'd have preferred young Ahsoka, personally, or even "adventure" Padme maybe.  Or Baby Boba.  Or a Death Watch Mandalorian.  Or a lot of other random important people.

Saw one for $59 tonight and man, I can't do it...  Half that, maybe.

I'm kind of in the same boat...  My buddy from here on the site (and here locally) goes all the time, and so he's my droid drug mule of sorts.  I think a 2-pack any time he's there is so cheap, why not just build another?

One of my new favs in my collection is a white R4 dome, blue body, white legs...  The contrasting colors are awesome.

Also I have an all solid blue R2 now, and man, it's a great way to get the R2-D2 dome without having any white there.  Very distinctly different from R2-D2...  I'm wondering though, a white bodied R2 with solid blue legs may look pretty awesome too.

The color contrasts really can make for some great background droids though.  Droid Factory at WDW is really the 2nd coolest thing they've done...  The Starspeeder 1000 is still first in my world and I'd buy a repaint (Yellow, please!) of that beast in a heartbeat.

Bump

Dealer and Artists tables are selling out FAST, even with the show doubling in size...  Bigger size seems to mean the crowds are just bigger too, so if you're wanting a table get in on that action now!

Yeah I saw these too.  I'm so bummed planets are dead.  I don't like these little ships.  I do want the set of guards and gunners though.  Very nice.

I was thinking that too...  Certainly possible.  It's like the Falcon was around at the dawn of civilization in Star Wars.

How do ya sell more different toys though!?  - George Lucas

Idej, are there dimensions out already?  8', you sure?  That's bigger than the Falcon and the ship looks on par or slightly smaller just eyeballing it.

I think toy lead-ups for Episode 7 will hit closer to its release...  November I could see a big toy blitz.  I could see an August release for a Rebels ship, but then again I think the timing doesn't bode well for its release at all.  Burns is saying he heard it is so I'm taking that as a solid rumor that it'll happen but none of the timing jives with anything, to me.

I suspect any Ghost ship is going to be grossly underscaled...  It's certainly bigger than I originally thought it was.  I doubt they even go BMF in terms of it size...  I'd guess smaller.  AT-TE, MTT...  I'd be shocked if they went as small as the Republic Shuttle though.  That's really a small toy that relied a lot on "opening up" to look bigger than it actually is.

Assuming it does come out, I'd think it'd have to come out late Summer.  Just my guess.  I suppose it could come out Spring, but it's not a very good toy buying season for something big.  Then again, maybe it won't be very big at all?  Maybe it'll be small, simplistic, designed for small hands and not collectors at all.  I'd not be shocked to see something along those lines.

Not to say I think they're "poor quality" items by any means but I think these Class-II are probably not on par in terms of complexity, compared to the old vehicles of similar size...  Like say the old Jedi Fighters and things.  I wouldn't personally say I'd compare 2 Class II ships to 1 bmf really...  Just personal experience they're way far apart.

I think if you took apart a "bmf" type vehicle you'd see its REALLY complex compared to even the old class II stuff which, by my eye, I can see corners cut on even these Rebels ships that didn't happen on old class II.  They're definitely better than 2013's midget ships tho but I see some of the recent vehicle tricks to save on tooling are being used.  Still look good to me but they're also open to more interpretation than say the cloud car or something.

Since Burns is saying he was told 2015 I believe that.  Fall maybe?  Be surprised if its earlier.  But The Ghost seems destined for next year at this point.  It may not be ATTE sized though...  Maybe it'll be fairly small?  Maybe it'll be the only big ship all year?

Price be damned, I may order that 2-pack of figures with the base.

I soooooo want that tank mech suit.

Disney Droids are, for some odd reason, some of my favorite pieces I have.  Love sneaking them in with random figures like they're following them around or something.

I'm doing a little digging into this story because it intrigues me so.  :-X

That expansion of Jedi Knight, Republic Commando, and KOTOR III really just sinks my heart.

Not to mention how GOOD 1313 was and then Lucas came in taking a massive **** upon it.  We might've gotten that, if not for Lucas himself.

But yeah, Jim Ward?  What a ******* ******* by that story, and I say that with complete sincerity.  I hate people who think they can do anything because they accomplished one thing in life.  Everyone in the world seems to think they can do other people's jobs...  This transcends this topic, but not the online world of Star Wars for certain.

The, "I know better than you" crowd, who've never worked in an industry, make me laugh my ass off.  Lots of these folks around.  ::)
