The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

It wasn't something I thought about much till this discussion but it is indeed annoying and somehow different from the OT to me, for some reason.

Agreed, they overdid it with that edit technique.  I get that it's a hallmark of sorts of the films, but for some reason it wasn't nearly as often or jumpy in the OT.  Maybe it was just a lot of location hopping in the PT compared to the OT?

They were both referenced by name in the show IIRC?  I know Kitwarr was.

For me, it had its moments, but it wasn't as good as the first show was...  Perhaps it was the first show's hour that made it better.  I will say the pacing of Droids in Distress is not right in some way.  A half hour is such a short time to do stories like this, and it shows sometimes.  :-\

Agreed, the last work he has done for LFL stuff hasn't been memorable really...  I hope he really has some impressive stuff for the new ones.

I REALLY don't want those cameos...  Leia, at most, would be ok I guess.  Perhaps some mild interaction with OWK, but Luke?  No.  Han?  No.  No No No No NO!

I just don't want any of that crappola going on.

Some Bounty Hunters would be ok to me too I suppose, but I don't need to see a young Lando showing up or anything. 

Which means all that probably will happen.

Nada here but saw some more GI Joes outta the blue...  Kinda wondering if they are not clearing out distribution centers/warehouses?  It's kind of odd how these are hitting.  Not their usual patterns.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Star Wars Commander - App

 ::)  :P

Was thinking about FC the other day, actually, in comparison to this...  So disappointed they cheaped out and basically just gave the Rebels a bunch of ****** PT designs for vehicles and didn't use EU designs like FC's or GB's.

Kinda the same thought on the Empire.  No TIE Crawler but they include the hover tank from the PT mostly?  Meh.

"Bleed into" it?  not sure what you mean there but I don't see why heating it would help at all.

TV-9D9 / Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)
« on: October 6, 2014, 02:47 PM »
This is on the WatchDisneyXD App, and I watched it over the weekend...

There are spoilers here if you're waiting for it to be on TV or can't watch it so beware, more or less.





I did NOT like this episode as much as the previous one.  There was some darkness with the implication that the weapon they were after does nasty things to living beings, but the idea a simple rifle can shoot and bring down a walker?  Kinda lame.

Likewise, how'd the Empire have and use these on Zeb's species, but now need prototypes to mass produce them?  They had them before, and used them to put down a species more or less!

I felt like the pacing was a little goofy, and 3PO and R2 were really crowbarred into it IMO.

I did like I guess why they were there, and where they ultimately wound up, and how there are more to the rebellion (and more powerful groups obviously) than our main characters.

I didn't loathe this episode by any means, but it just wasn't as good as I was hoping. 

I liked the Capt. Rex cameo though, and I'm all the more happy I own a Starspeeder toy sized to action figures. :)

Oh, one more thing, the alien animation is thus far a good deal more redundant than it was in TCW...  I know that's a thing the animators try to overcome as a series goes on but it's been way too noticeable so far.  They really need to diversify their alien character library they can go to.  The Aqualish all wearing the same jacket is getting old.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

All pretty solid figures.  Lando especially...  Evazan too is quite a dandy upgrade.

They didn't seem to have a problem getting those ****** rebels Command figures into stores ahead of time.  ::)

Cheap to grind out en masse and more profit per piece. Not that they are selling all that well, at least in my area.

+1

They're a different egg, probably made in a completely separate factory.  Action figures take a bit more and a different production process I'd wager.  I wouldn't be shocked if COmmand's produced where vehicles are, actually.  More similar construction aside from the figures.

I was just thinking how "soft" things were for Rebels at retail.  I went to TRU and there was really nothing...  Then again, how much lead time did LFL give to Hasbro to develop any of this?  Figures take time.

I can't imagine Rebels did as well as TCW in terms of ratings either.  TCW had the film to launch it, and there was just a lot going on.  This feels very different.
