I enjoyed the Beta well enough, but honestly it didn't feel any better as far as FPS games go than really anything else out there like Titanfall, HALO or COD.  If anything it had a lil too much COD feeling to it where, unless you play COD religiously and without much of a life, be prepared for 12 y/o's to own you all day long.  :D  Visually it's stunning but most games are so I'm not swayed there.  It'll be the balance of the gameplay, to me, that makes me like it or love it.  I liked the Beta, but wasn't blown away.  Frankly it was annoying at times.

Titanfall puts a better balance in gameplay I've found, and wish more games tried to be that way.  Even online, you can get somewhere without feeling like you're only alive for a few seconds after each respawn. :)

I'm pretty sure Disney didn't forefeit any rights to anything Star Wars to Cartoon Network.  I'd like seeing that too really.

Yeah the show's not deep enough to delve into military tactics, even on a rudimentary level, but 3 walkers dropped in, no air support save for one TIE Fighter (wtf  ???), no flank support for the walkers, no troopers in the walkers to deploy, no speeders (bikes or otherwise)...  nada.  It's just a cartoon, a kid's show, but it's that kind of simplicity that probably makes me less into it.

Again, loved the walkers, that McQ design was pretty slick with the head hatch, the ball shaped front guns and stuff.  I kind of just ignore the silliness of their deployment...  They deployed at Hoth a distance away for a reason.  Here, they just drop out of sight then (very slowly) plod along to wherever they were to be originally.

I just like seeing new(ish) vehicle designs...  Hell, even computers and boxes get my creative juices flowing as to things you can do with that stuff.  :)

This arc bored me though, I'll be honest.  It was a letdown from the premier.  Just me though, a 38 y/o dude watching it by himself.  I get who it's for, I just don't care and miss the quality TCW episodes we could sometimes get.

Another day, another episode...  I liked the proto-AT-ATs, and found them interesting.  Also nice to see AT-AT drivers as well.  I liked seeing them matched against an AT-TE too.  It was interesting to see in general.  It was more interesting to see that they can be destroyed by direct repeated hits from a sizable weapon.  That jives with other info...  albeit these not being the same vehicle and all.

The story...  more fluff to me, and I didn't find it overly interesting.  It moves along the Rebels as an organization getting some good intel on bases though.

Nice to see the Admiral get a name...  Don't think they gave that up till now.

I'm more into Rebels, at this point, for inspiration, and vehicles and greeblies like that little one-man anti-air turret from last season.  The show's story doesn't engage me like TCW did I guess, even with TCW having some big flaws itself.  It doesn't help that I watch this alone, don't have little kids...  My youngest watched an episode or two with me, and bailed.  Said it was "too kiddy" to enjoy.  I enjoy the visual stuff so I hang on.  I'm sure they'll have some pretty good eps too here and there like last season's finale.  For me, at this point, it's like a prequal film.  Lots of things to like, lots not to like, and I'll watch it because it's Star Wars and stuff.

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Resin

soap and water cleans resin parts from their release agents, no need to do rubbing alcohol.  Just warm water and dish soap and thorough cleaning (using a brush, preferably something soft like a toothbrush).

As far as paint, all paints pretty much adhere to resin well once primed.  Even without priming really.

Clear as in see-through?  There's not really anything called "clear primer".  There is adhesion promoter in automotive paints. 

Otherwise, primer is primer...  Krylon, Rustoleum, Plastikote...  They all have primers of varying differences.  Some are self-etching, some are just regular old primer, and some are a little thicker.

There are then plastic primers from companies like Tamiya, etc.  For specifically plastic models and things.  They're not cheap though comparatively speaking, but they're formulated to be fairly thin as not to obscure details on model kits.  I've found automotive primers often work fine though too.

I don't remember why I thought what I did...  I just had it in my head their growth decelerated at some point. 

Looking at Rex, he's not old really...  not young but not old.  I dunno.

I had to call the kids to find out...  Not home till 19th, so I figure we'll all go later in the weekend for a matinee.  I'm taking my gf to a 2D showing Thursday and that'll tide me over.

Don't wanna be excited.  Want to just be hopeful.  Hard not to be excited though.  ::)

I'm wondering if these are in the film or not.  I kinda want one in a way but not sure.  $30's spendy but not horrid these days.  :-\

I thought Clones only grew to adulthood quickly but I have no idea why I thought that.

Pablo Hidalgo said some were used to train the new soldiers others just faded away.  I think there's a sort of tragic angle there. 

I never liked Filoni's notion Stormtroopers are like Keystone Cops in space.  I think Palps would decommission the Clones as a gesture to the remaining Senate that the war is over.  However I think he'd reform the military under other notions and gradually grow it to even larger numbers eventually.  Expansion of the Empire, etc.  And I think with the seeming popularity he built he could get recruits no problem.  I always felt like there was a Republic Military of recruits anyway prior to and throughout the clone wars, it was just never huge nor much more than a police force, at least prior to the war anyway.

Wondering if that voice isn't Leia's, actually.

Meh whatever, I don't care.  I love this.

Han's lines = AMAZING.

Finn's too.  Finn's story and Poe's (which seems sort of secondary) have me most interested.

Nah Luke noticeably absent.  Hmmm.  Gone all hermit perhaps?
