The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL; Announces Episode 7

What I don't want is forced cameos with Fisher, Hamill and Ford...

Can they be totally unforced, starring roles, then?

But what if ends up being good? 

To me it's no risk, all reward.

In a way, yes, but also no. I still feel the same way about the original movies, but the brand as a whole feels SO much more watered down to me in part due to the prequels, cartoons, whatever else, and the name as a whole doesn't mean as much to me as it once did. I'm sure we're going to get some movies that will be a lot of fun to watch, and while it's enormously unlikely they'll ever match up to the original three, they'll be worth seeing, just because.

This is pretty amazing news, and it's either the best thing or worst thing ever for the SW brand. It all depends on who gets to helm the project and how it all comes together. I'm totally shocked, and I never thought at this point I'd ever be looking forward to more SW movies... wow.

Maybe that's what makes is serious?

Really?  How on Earth did the Beatles get influenced by the Monkees then? 

Seriously? Just listen to their music. It's virtually identical.

Agreed...and like I Am Sith and the McJordan in MN we had the Cheddar Melt burger w/ two cheeses and a chocolate sundae w/ choc syrup called the Puck Pack after Kibry

Good ol' Kibry. The Tiwns haven't been the same since he retired.

Yeah. Hm. I wonder if I can play it off if I am trying to buy the full set in the exchange? More money for them, technically, right? Hm.

Color me idiotic - I guess I wasn't much paying attention to all of this, as I went and picked up just the OT BDs today at Target, expecting them to have the OT extra features, deleted scenes, etc. But it's just the movies. Which I assume everyone else in the world knew besides me. And of course I didn't figure this out until I popped it in the player and saw no options for extras other than commentaries.

Not sure if I want to shell out for everything PT related, as I frankly don't care about those movies much at all, but we'll see. I would like the deleted stuff for sure, despite the fact that I've seen a lot of it over the years online.

So yeah. Here's hoping Target takes back opened discs.

From some shitheel's blog:

"Yes, the updates are confirmed. We hope fans will wait to see for themselves how they fit into the Saga before making any judgments."

Right. Because I haven't seen these movies dozens of times, and I can't possibly imagine how it would sound or look to put these changes in. I have to see them in the context of the entire movie. Ok.

The CG Ewok eyes look fine, and not overly CG at all.

The rest, wow. Not surprised at all, but wow.

There's also this weird Burns effecty door pan at Jabba's palace:

So they made more vintage figures after Skiff Lando, didn't they? Or no?

Vintage Kenner / Re: Do You Display Your Vintage Figures?

I use IKEA Bertby cabinets for my figure displays:



They work well and look great, especially all lit up.

Nice stuff! Interesting to use older actors for a kids' toy. Says the adult guy on a forum based around kids' toys.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: Top Ten Most Hated Figures Ever
« on: February 20, 2011, 12:30 AM »
Yeah, most things POTF2 would qualify, but I tend to think of them with some nostalgia at this point. 

Oh yeah, don't get me wrong; in '95, I was mega-super stoked about them and snagged the whole lot ASAP. Just having new SW merch then was a lot of fun. But beyond the nostalgia factor, those things are just ugly all around.
