I won't say too much, and maybe it was common knowledge if I had read a little more about the book ahead of time, but there are some pretty important OT characters in this book all of a sudden I wasn't expecting.

I'm about a 1/4 of the way through and so far if it wasn't for the few mentions of Vader, Stormtroopers, and Star Destroyers it would just be any old boring horror novel. Having said that I need to give it a little more time for the action to pick up.

If I recall correctly this comes out today.

That is correct. I was thinking of picking it up but I think I'll listen to SWAN's podcast review of it first.

I stopped at B&N and grabbed it. I could see it being fascinating or really dumb. I'll find out soon.

I may be butchering the actual title, but "Men Who Stare at Goats" looks really funny. And with McGregor, Spacey, Clooney, and more it's got quite the cast.

Knowing the story of SW, watching the Jedi die is powerful to ME. I don't need to feel a certain way about them. They were important one way or the other.

Good game last night. Henne sure looked good.

And I got to see Brady play for the first time this year and it sure is hard to watch him as just a mediocre QB. I guess it shows how hard it is to come back from missing a whole season.

It's a "manchurian candidate" type thing, so I think it's plausible.  I never honestly had a problem with it.  I'm sure the more independant the Clone, the less likely they are to follow the order, but the true independant Clones are the ARC's, perhaps the Commandoes...  Commanders are trained by ARCs, according to EU, but they're not ARCs.  They're still the more simplified Clone design.

I really like the "Manchurian Candidate" comparison. I think that's a good way to look at it.

I still think it was highly implausible all of the clones instantly turned on the Jedi in the first place.



It's actually super duper plausible since it's what happened in the movie. ;)

How are the order 66 scenes already so powerful? At what point did the Jedi earn our sympathy?

How is the massacre of the Jedi Order not powerful, regardless of how you feel about the Jedi?

The Yankees did more than their share to win that series, but the Twins sure did all they could to give that series to the Yankees too.

The Twins lost and it's over.

But MLB has 6 umps instead of the normal 4 in the playoffs so they can make all these calls correctly and that what is just so hard to swallow for me.

My current thinking on this is that the show will end with Ashoka no longer being a Padawan and going off with her own troops. They are NEVER going to show her dying on the show. Captain Rex will offer to keep an eye on her for Anakin and ask to transfer to Ashoka's squad as their commander. Then when GL finally releases ROTS on BR, we'll get a new Order 66 scene where Ashoka is taken out by Captain Rex wearing the ROTS style armor - which after the cartoon being on for three or four seasons would make that scene incredibly powerful.


That sounds great. I'm going to be really disappointed if this isn't what happens now. The Order 66 scene(s) are so powerful already and that would just top it off.

Build a Droid has been by far the best insert that Hasbro's ever done.  I really wish they were continuing.

Agree with you. Hasbro just needs to STOP making the obscure figures! They really do! That's the No. 1 way to get figure sales up again (besides lowering the price of figs by a $1 or 2.  :D

But how many more resculpts of the main characters can you sell before the entire collecting community abandons the line?

Exactly. I don't need nothing but resculpts. There has to be some middle ground.
