I'm not offended when I see a white cowboy.

You might be though if the only time a white guy showed up in a movie was when the movie needed a cowboy...  :-\

It's a fine line Disney is trying to walk - you don't want to take away minority roles... but at the same time they have to be careful with stereotypes.  This 'wise old master' one is a good one.  Do you go "Mr. Miyagi" and cast to type or do you do something different?  Either way some segment is going to be upset in today's outrage culture.

I really like the way Marvel is doing things - you nail the look of the main guy (Thor, IM, Strange, Cap, etc) and then you play a bit with the smaller roles to make the movie world look more like today's real world and less like 60s' comic book world.  That was kind of one of the very few things that Man of Steel got right with Fishburn/Perry White I thought.

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

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

We've seen some amazing looking creatures realized as digital characters, but have we ever really seen a human character convincingly realized as a digital character? 

Maybe Disney has made some advances in that area since they tried it in TRON: Legacy with CLU/young Jeff Bridges?

Jesse's hope for a decent RFT figure is possibly renewed!  :D

Yep, because if there's one thing in this world Jesse has wanted forever, it's a new 5POA RFT figure.   :-X

Shaping up to be an exciting finish in the Central.

If the Stars win on Saturday, they get the streaky, yet potentially dangerous in the playoffs MN Wild (we've beat the #1 two years in a row, you know).

If the Stars lose and STL wins... the Stars get the Blackhawks in round 1, while STL gets the Wild.


And the 3-way battle in the East w/BOS, DET, PHI, is shaping up to be fun too.  Going to keep pulling for DET and BOS because everyone hates it when the Flyers miss the playoffs (or at least I know it'll make the two Jesses here very happy to see BOS in and PHI out :P).

And Mon Mothma?  Nice!  It even looks like they got the same actress that played her in REVENGE OF THE SITH.

According to EW, it is indeed the same actress.

I would think it's Emporer Palpatine by virtue of the Royal Guards standing sentry.

Yeah, those guards definitely suggest Palps is somewhere nearby.  Maybe that scene is in his DS1 private chambers or something...?

Yeah, all of this is very good - Death Star, hints of Vader and Palps, Star Destroyers, AT-ATs.  All very, very good.

Don't really care for the revisionist history of adding all these "specialty death troopers" to the OT era... it's just Stormies, Snowies, Sandies, and Biker Scouts, dammit!

I liked those Tank Trooper guys in that ground vehicle - those were pretty neat.  Can't wait to buy that toy...

Maz - clicky for a bigger pic. :)

Not really all that bummed that she is 5POA.  Elbows would have been nice, but she's got a really nice sculpt.  Love the way they did the goggles too - separate pieces glued into place.  Sure it would have been nice if they were moveable to raise them up, but it's waaaay better than what could have happened if they had made a different choice (#yellowpilotvisors).

A nice little surprise was waiting for me when I got home from work today, courtesy of our friends at Hasbro.  Click the picture to check out a larger version. :)

I'll try to crack it open and get some loose shots of Maz in a bit here...

Does that mean it'll be in stores too?

Yes, it will be in stores.  Yakface has pics of shelf tags at Kmart and it went up on Kmart.com already too.

I'm going to place my bet that next season will start with Rick telling Negan how his favorite gun is also named Lucille.  #problemsolved #BvS :D

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the writers themselves haven't fully committed to who's gonna die.  They're probably gathering polling data to see what would give the strongest response without hurting business.

And this really hamstrings them when it comes to promoting the next season.  You can't really show any making-of clips or on-set photos of any of the mains besides Rick, Carl, Carol and Morgan.

Agree with all of this. 

Such a dumb mistake to end on the easy "who's going to die" cliffhanger.  I fully expect next season to end with a "who shot JR Mr. Burns Rick" cliffhanger.

Would have been much more impactful IMHO to kill the person and let it stew all summer wondering what was going to happen next...
