I realize that 99% of collectors won't care, but just in case that 1% that might, maybe a parent for their kid for Christmas, Target has the Clone Trooper Voice Changer Helmet that is normally $43 on sale for $20 (so $15 if you use clone cash).

How have the Titans managed to fall this far so fast? I came home from going from a bike ride with my wife and turned on the Pats game to see the score and almost wet myself when I saw it was 45 - 0 at half time.

I am a huge fan of the "Resident Evil" video games and obviously a ginormous fan of Star Wars. Turns out when you combine them together it turns out pretty sucktastic.

Just an FYI. I didn't look at the price (sorry), I imagine it was 30% off, but I noticed that Target has some of the Indy sets on clearance now.

And at some point the Fonz jumps a shark with his speeder bike.   ::)

I don't think you can "jump the shark" in a book that isn't even in a series. If this was a story in a 10 book series or certainly from one of the movies maybe the Fonz could have shown up (and I'm still not sold on that).

I'm now half way through the book and I'm starting to think the Fonz, his bike, and a shark are right around the corner.

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?
