Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Disney Star Wars Theme Park?
« on: December 11, 2014, 12:31 PM »
Looks like Disney's "Star Wars Land" plans are now focusing on the new movies and spin-offs... including episode 8 already.

‘Star Wars’ Theme Park Attractions to Be Based on New Films, Not Old (EXCLUSIVE)

"Iger stopped early development on theme park attractions at Imagineering. “We couldn’t tell them what was new,” Iger said, until Abrams was finished developing and producing the sequel. “I slowed it all down so what we come forward with will have a blend of the past, present and maybe the future,” referencing upcoming sequels and spinoff films. “Now we have a sense of what’s in ‘Star Wars 8,’ and what some of the standalone films will have in them.”"

Now I can go to work completing the Gundam Wing - Endless Waltz stuff....  and of course, be careful not to stray into any of the other Gundam series - Zeta, G-Fighter, etc. ;)

Well, I'm continuing to work on completing my Gundam Wing - Endless Waltz stuff.  I have a Wing Gundam Zero [EW version] pre-ordered.  He's scheduled to arrive this month, hopefully that happpens and isn't bumped into January.  Still looking for a good deal on Tallgeese III.  But until then...

I bought God Gundam (G-Fighter) in November.
I have Zeta Gundam (Z Gundam) pre-ordered (Dec-2014).
I have Shining Gundam (G-Fighter) pre-ordered (May-2015).

Dammit.  I have officially strayed from "Gundam Wing only".  #thefloodgateisopen 

Goodbye, money.  :-\

Hot Wheels new "Elite" Series offers up its first Episode VII product announcement -

Star Wars The Force Awakens New Starship Hot Wheels Elite Die-Cast Vehicle - Coming in May 2016 ($69.99)

"From Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, comes this 1:18 scale Hot Wheels Elite Starship Hot Wheels Elite Die-Cast Vehicle. The Force Awakens Starship measures approximately 6-inches long and features opening parts and attachable landing gear. The Force Awakens Starship Includes a display stand and is packaged in a polyfoam closed black box. More details to come."


EE has a few other "Eilte Series" too... ANH X-Wing, ESB TIE Fighter, and ROTJ Falcon.  They say 1:18 scale, but if the Falcon is only 6" long that's obviously NOT a real 1:18 scale. :P

Pretty sure this just jumped to my #2 most anticipated movie of 2015 -

Cast, car unveiled for 24th Bond film 'SPECTRE'

Andrew Scott (Sherlock) is awesome.  Ralph Fiennes is awesome.  Daniel Craig is awesome.  The Aston Martin DB10 is awesome.

But Christoph Waltz as a Bond villain = MEGA-awesome.  :)

Humans are going to Mars.

Putting an asteroid in orbit around the moon?  Crazy.

Of course, just minutes after I rant about what a cluster it is, StarWars.com finally puts out a list of theaters at least...

Info says Vader is 18cm (7inch), so a little big for Hasbro 6" scale but not too out of line for a bigger guy like Vader.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I've been checking in on Twitter at various points today.  Is it just me or could the sneak preview teaser trailer announcement have been any more screwed up? 

"Hey everyone, an 88-second teaser trailer for The Force Awakens may or may not be coming to a theater chain near you!  And that theater chain may or may not be showing it this weekend at their theater closest to you! And they may or may not have figured out on which movies they'll be screening it even though it's just 4 days away!"

I shouldn't need someone to build a map/table of theater chains and locations to figure out if I can see it this weekend or not...

Starting a thread for these...  CollectionDX has a new look at the Stormtrooper figure.

I think the flint-lock E11 is my favorite part...  he'll look great with the previously announced Darth Vader figure.

Starting a separate thread for these...

The Darth Vader kit has been released in Japan.  Gunjap has a great photoreview of what comes in the kit for those that are curious to see.

The Stormtrooper kit should be out in December.

Thanks Jesse for saving me $75. 

I was on the fence about buying these, but now I think I'll pass on all three and wait to see the reviews on the Imp Troop Transport before I decide on that one.
