I wouldn't bet on that.  We still get core characters and fan favorites in recent lines despite the lack of movie presence.  Look at characters like Fett who pop up in almost every wave even though he's not relevant in any of the current media content.  He hasn't been relevant on screen for a while, but right now I can buy armor up Fett, those goofy combiner figures, and even an infinity figure.  Plus there are some rumors that we might see a young Han cameo in the Rogue One film...   :-X

She seems to walk into a tunnel entrance - did you see her fall versus walk after the owl scene?  I think the rest of the Rebels think she is dead given the base exploded with her in it, which really should have been the death of both her and Vader.  ::)

Rewatched the ending - Ahsoka is standing at the mouth of a cave right after we see Vader, so she's still alive at this point.

Angry Asian Man doesn't seem too thrilled by it...

NICE TRY, MARVEL. 'DR. STRANGE' CASTING IS STILL WHITEWASHING

TILDA SWINTON TEACHES DR. STRANGE THE MYSTICAL ASIAN STUFF

That was a fun read, if for nothing other than this line, "As far as I can tell, the Mystical Asian Stuff includes out-of-body karate (hey, that rhymes), in which you can hit someone so hard, your body farts out a glowing version of yourself."   ;D

Why didn't they just get Michelle Yeoh to play the ancient one? She was amazing in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

She's too Asian for the role.  :-X

Well, that's the Mandarin and we're talking about the Ancient One.



The movie is supposedly sticking to the comic origin, where Strange travels to Asia to learn mystical powers from the Ancient One.  Rather than have an Asian play the guy from Asia (!), we're getting a rich white guy travelling to Asia where a powerful white woman will teach him the secret mysteries of an Asian culture.  I have to think it's a lot more offensive to write an Asian out of an Asian role, but whatever.

Are Asians really offended by an Asian-monk character in a movie?  I'm not trying to be flippant - I'd really like to know what different groups actually find offensive.  I'm not offended when I see a white cowboy.  If you expect to see a certain race/ethnicity for a character and they use someone white, I would think that's even more offensive, right?  It's too bad we have to put so much effort into things like this.  I'm not a big Strange fan, but I always thought the ancient one was pretty cool from what little I read (versus being an offensive stereotype).

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

I was just in France last week.  Euros are closer to US dollars now and their figures run high.  12.99 would be about right for a basic figure, but pretty cheap compared to the 6" figures I saw ( about 20-25 Euros).

Exactly.  I am not against bringing more diversity into the roles, but eliminating an Asian role and adding an African American doesn't scream increased representation to me.  It's just some BS Director's way to make the movie their own and drive PR by getting people to react.  I don't get why this is prioritized over positive PR for finding a great likeness to the original source material, especially when you're making these B-List off shoot movies like Strange. RDJ is the perfect likeness of Tony Stark...that seemed to work out pretty well for everyone.  I can't wait to see the new Heroes for Hire starring Melissa McCarthy as Power Man and her lesbian lover Kevin Hart (in drag) as a Mexican Billionaire Iron Fist.

So rumor has it a SA Jedi Luke is in the near future.

Man, if only they would do a SA X-Wing Luke or Luke Stormtrooper or Tatooine Luke.

Oh wait...  ;)

Funny, I stayed up until 2am one night to catch the last TWD shows because I was out of the country.  But I keep find excuses not to catch FTWD yet.  Disappointed to hear they haven't improved over the first season.  So much potential...

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

So Ezra and Erso....

I think given the lightsaber and force powers, the theory was more along the lines of Luke and Erso.  That assumes she survives the movie of course.

New feature added today.  You can now watch the movie with your BB-8.  There are pop-ups on the phone identifying characters when they come on screen, BB-8 will act surprised during action sequences and look away when something scares him.

My 5 year old thought it was pretty cool.  I agree with him!  :D

So you have to be watching the movie on your phone/tablet?
