Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One (SPOILERS)
« on: April 7, 2016, 11:24 PM »
Man I keep watching it...  So much good in there.  RFT's with maybe MP armbands on?  Lotta nods that the Battlefront Rebels are what Rebel "Troopers" look like going on too...  Looks like Dodonna behind Mothma there too, I think.  Seeing Yavin IV like that, it's just so weird.  Weird seeing it again, seeing it bustling...  Did the base largely evac before ANH?  Where's everyone wind up?

Saw a lot of familiar REbel Pilot helmet logos, and saw some other colored jumpsuits too...  Saw makeshift stuff for welding/work tables...  It's very very much everything I always thought the Rebellion would look like.  I'm just giddy.

Just now able to watch it on my spiffy new laptop. :P  As annoyed as I was to have to buy a new computer, this thing made that trailer a hell of a lot of fun!

So much to take in, in that trailer.  Like honestly when blown up on HD and able to watch/pause, there's just a TON to look at.  It's epic, in every way.  This being a one-off feels like there should just already be more, to me.

It could also be an ISB officer which jives with the idea of special forces guys stealing secrets and all that jazz.  The pants appear black.  GA's in all white, not that that's set in stone at this point.

Glenn and the Flyers Twitter accounts had a fun exchange tonight. :)  Wasn't sure if this should be TWD or the hockey thread, but it fit both well ultimately.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Acid Rain - by Ori Toy

Big Bad Toy Store has 3 other pre-orders for Acid Rain Laurel's up now, and I think this one may be up the Star Wars faithful's alley more!

There is a regular release Laurel Worker (black/yellow hazard markings...  Kind of like the load lifter in Aliens), a "Ghost" all clear version Laurel (meh, not as cool to me but I may get one someday), and a "Dead" Laurel, rusted and with a corpse pilot to boot.  Interesting on the last one...  No hint of that being a regular release product, yet here it is.  Also it has an arm-built cannon instead of a hand, which was only seen on other variant prototypes of this set.

Kind of bummed to see the prices are up/down on some of these.  Considering first Laurel's price, I'd have appreciated seeing these come in a little cheaper.  But such is life on import stuff.  And these things are worth the price.

BBTS has pre-orders...  Hoping EE puts up their own soon though!

The "worker" has been on my must have list since it was first teased eons ago.  A basic, heavy construction mech.  It fits in with Star Wars perfectly, to me.  I could see the Empire having these in Kessel doing mining work, or on a Star Destroyer doing heavy lifting when needed.  Just seems perfect.  Star Wars figures do fit these well too, actually.

I've wanted something like that for a while now, and so I'm picking up two of that right out of the gate.  The Ghost, meh...  And while I like the idea of the "dead" one, the price may make me hesitant at that time of year.  Knowing me though I'll probably still buy one.  Love the line too much not to.

The Hiroshima Worker doesn't fit into Star Wars as well, but the colors are perfect if you can get past the font.  :x  Stuff like that just looks like the used "industrial" Star Wars look to it, and that it belongs in a different galaxy.

Very very Republic Commando-ish IMO.  Nice.

I dig those goggles too.  I think Hasbro can do some really innovative looking work when they put their minds to it, and those are a primo example.  Wish they moved, but I'm sure I can make them move. :)

Looks fantastic.  Probably one of the most wanted figures for me now.

I've had some things going on so I couldn't watch the last half hour till tonight, and man all that rage is justified IMO.  I agree with Bill and Mikey on this, completely.

I'm probably in the minority here but that dude's neck would've snapped (Hell he was even on chain, not even rope) or his head come off clean...  That was lame, but whole aside thing there.

The whole season built up how the Alexandrians were dealing with something unknown, acting unlike themselves, and it was going to slap 'em in the face.  It was a giant big fart of nothing at the end though.  The POV death scene?  Ugh.  Very lame of a show I didn't expect this from.  I'm usually a huge champion of TWD but this one **** the bed as far as I'm concerned and I hope they don't do season ending cliffhangers again.  They're lame.  Let fans stew for the repercussions in the following season.

My bet's been on Abraham.  His storyline's done IMO.  Then again so is Sasha's.  Frankly I'd prefer Sasha's head be the fruit salad, but I'm wagering Abraham is.  They're going to pull that "Hah it wasn't Glenn!" Mind F.

I'm let down, and I'm sure I'll be equally annoyed (more so, actually, I'm sure), as I trudge through Talking Dead to see the behind the scenes stuff, and attempt to ignore to the lame "We'll get through this" stuff.  ::)

That's awesome Jeff!

Hoping I can score this at K-Mart and use points because I hate eating the $ for two figures I don't want, but I really want Mazz and that box. :) Oh and BB8 too.

I was able to buy Captain & Taneal off Hasbro's Ebay store, so that was nice.  It was one of the few things I REALLY actually wanted to own.

I would like the squad leader Stormie and the unmasked Kylo (to custom up one of my good Kylo figures from Wal-Mart).

Looking at the rest of the stuff I don't have, I don't think I'll care much then if I don't get it.  TVC Nein Numb is all the Numb I Nein, and Tassu Leech I'd like, but meh.

I'm still on the fence TRYING to custom a Han.  I want one, but the headsculpt is so-so to me, and he's gonna be a bear to add articulation to I'm afraid.  But I really really want an articulated TFA Han.  :-\

May buy a couple more Hassk's if I see them.  I dig those guys for some reason.

I haven't found Tassu Leach, Ackbar, Numb, Stormtrooper Squad Leader guy, the Capt. & Taneal 2-pack, and I'm sure I'm missing someone else there.   :-\

After things were moving fairly well here, they just stopped around my area.

I did get the Hassk thug which was probably one of my more wanted figures, as is the 2-pack and probably Ackbar and the trooper.  Besides that, I could probably live without Numb and Tassu Leach though I'd like that little freak from Kanjiklub too I guess.

Aliens tend to have more an interest from me, so I'd like them at least.   And the trooper I just want trooper variants.  Plus my squad needs a leader.

I don't care for Maul being a turd that won't flush but in general I liked the episode for what it was.  And Vader is always epic in it.  That JEJ does the voice seems to help that along for me I think.  Kanan now Jerec?  Same hairstyle. :)

I think it'd be neat to see some of the fallen Jedi or Rahm Kota snuck in for fun.

I'd kinda like them to take a year or two gettin new parts out. :P

WDW has round 1 parts yet and was missing all purple parts and not a lot of the newest stuff...  These last couple waves have been a chore. :(

IMO they all do equally dumb things in the comics.

I it's about how people "deal with things" I guess they're trying to emphasize the emotional reaction over the thought out logical one.  To that end I get everyone doing what they do kind of knee jerk.  But to me that's the only thing that justifies any of it, and it really barely does.  It just is sometimes ****** writing.
