The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« on: April 26, 2014, 12:01 AM »
I did a little cleaning up in here...  let's keep the "RIP EU" talk in the Disney EU Clean-Up thread and leave this one for Episode 7 specific talk.  Thanks!

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU

I wonder what their position is on the pre TPM EU is?  Are things like Old Republic considered canon?

Reading the article, it sounds like old canon is still canon unless something Disney plans/does over-writes it.  Then it becomes a 'Legends' universe story. 

For instance, if they do end up making a 'young Han Solo' movie, I imagine that'd nuke all the existing young Han Solo books (Daley Han Solo Adventures; Crispin Han Solo Trilogy; etc).

I think the article only calls out post-ROTJ because Ep7/8/9 is the only thing they've officially announced so far.  Once other things get announced, more and more of the "pre-Disney" EU will become 'Legends' EU.

Today at StarWars.com -

"In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe."


Nice to see that finally officially confirmed.  Back to speculating about the horrible idea of an Obi-Wan love child! :P

Lucasfilm finally confirms it - the existing post-ROTJ EU is out

They're not discarding it completely, it'll live on as an "alternate universe" type thing under the Star Wars Legends branding.

2-2, so I can officially be friends with Ryan again (for a few days anyway). :)

My sister had the game 3 tickets, so me and my dad went to Xcel for game 4 tonight.  Crazy atmosphere, crazy the way the Wild owned the Avs and yet bared squeaked by them again tonight.  I think we outshot the Avs 78-34 over the two games here in St. Paul.

Really, really hurts now that we let that Game 1 slip away after going up 4-2 after two...   :-\

Other Toy Lines / Re: Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. - by Boss Fight Studios
« on: April 16, 2014, 10:44 AM »
Looks like Boss Fight Studios finally revealed the full first series of their 4" Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. = Highly Articulated Character Kit System

Sort of a blend between custom kits and SA figures.  The first Series has Athenians, Gorgons, Spartans, and more.  You can check out the pics here and here.

I'll definitely be picking up a few of these I think.  Not sure I'll need all the Celestial/Statue variants, but definitely interested in checking out their kickstarter once it goes up.

Man, this line just looks cool.  Wish they were cheaper... but I understand why they cost so much.

Tempting...

I'll go...

Bruins, Habs, Rangers, and B-Jackets (sorry Jesse :()

That's what a lot of folks were hoping, but the Disney blog author confirmed the price in the comments and it's what they're charging when ordering a 16" figure online (an option only for those who have a D-Tech Me scan on file with Disney).

105
Looks like the D-Tech Me experience is making a return to SW Weekends this year, but with a few new options - two new figurine types (Alderaan Princess and X-Wing Pilot) and a new scale (16" inch figure).

The 7" figurines are $99.95 each plus shipping and applicable sales tax.
The 16" figurines are $1,499.95 each plus shipping and applicable sales tax.

Twice as big... 15x the price?   ???
