The FF reboot just keeps on giving...  meet Victor Domashev, anti-social programmer; aka "Doom" on the internet.

My FF loving pal has already sworn off this flick with the casting changes made to Marvel's "first family", can't wait to hear his 45 minute tirade on how changing Victor Von Doom is the new worst thing they can possibly do to the movie... ;)

Thought I'd point out this story at (which I first saw via Yakface).

After looking again at the one I opened last week, I can confirm that the #03 Vader does indeed have a taller neckpost.

As long as you don't get a bad head cast (like I did), it looks like this new #03 Darth Vader fixes the "head falls off when you look at it wrong" issue.

Well, I did my part in ruining society by putting my outdoor Christmas lights up yesterday.  I haven't set the timer to turn them on yet, but I did put them up on the house. 

And glad I did because we're looking at 6"-14" of snow over the next 48 hours and trying to get on that ladder in the icy snow and cold to put them up sucks..  :-\

Just guessing on the timeline, I think the show takes place only a short time after ROTS...maybe a couple of years.

Straight from the official site...

"Star Wars Rebels, set five years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, tells the story of the Rebellion’s beginnings while the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Star Wars Rebels airs Monday Nights at 9p/8c on Disney XD."

I've said it before - I'm 100% convinced they picked this timeline to be able to have 25yo Han bump into the Rebels... or to have 14yo Ezra meet 13yo Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia or whatever.  ;)

We went to see Big Hero 6 this weekend... no surprise, all four kids loved it.  I loved it too.  Great story, very fun.  A lot more fun than a lot of summer blockbusters I've seen in fact.  Boys are hoping for a DisneyXD series as they want more Baymax...

Hey, SAMCRO isn't into meth, in fact anti-meth was a big part of early seasons...  illegal gun-running and porn, sure, but no meth dealing.  Oh, and a brief perion of drug muling for Mexican cartels.  But no meth. ;)

Decided to return the Tonnika Sisters to my ANH wishlist this year...

In the end, it's probably a wasted vote but part of me would really like to know if Disney LFL will be as stubborn about them as George LFL was.

A few people PM'd me this week asking where my boys and I watched "Out of Darkness" since it hadn't aired yet, so I thought I'd share...

I'm not sure how the other cable/dish providers work, but Comcast/XfinityTV posts most of the DisneyXD animated series episodes on-demand the week ahead of the air date, including Star Wars Rebels. 

For example, "Out of Darkness", the 11/10 episode of Rebels, was posted for viewing on 11/4. That's how we watched it on Wednesday night. ;)

CollectionDX has posted updated pics for the S.H. Figuarts Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures.

Still no pricing info yet, but it sounds like pre-orders should be going up soon...

We watched the latest two episodes on-demand last night.

Kids loved the Ezra-in-Disguise episode.  I guess there's some book series coming out with the cadet Ezra met being the main character?  Probably going to pick those up for the boys since they're into those young reader books now.

They didn't care for Out of Darkness as much, probably because it focused on Hera/Sabine though.  They were all LOLing at the Zeb/Chopper/Ezra fixing the shuttle stuff.  The 4-year old especially loves Chopper's tricks on Ezra.

It's funny how each and every episode has some portion that makes me think, "Jesse must hate that".  :P   Couldn't help but thinking about it when they were talking about these kids getting ready to be Stormtroopers...  same with some of the other "kid physics" the show uses on the Empire (like the TIE flying sideways in atmosphere without the wings being ripped off a few episodes back).
