The Original Trilogy / Re: Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru and C-3PO
« on: May 9, 2008, 03:52 PM »
I don't know if anyone else takes it this way, but to me R2-D2 and C-3PO are character names, just like Luke and Leia, but they are also model numbers, like T-16 or ARC-170.  So although we associate R2-D2 as a character, I always figured there were thousands of R2-D2 units all over the galaxy, and its only the unique experiences of this particular R2-D2 that make it part of the story.  I guess its a lot like some people treat their car, almost like it has a personality.  And then once you sell that car, everytime you see that same model and color, you almost think its your old car.  So its almost no surprise that Owen doesn't try to see if this is the same R2-D2 unit that he'd met once for a couple days 25 years prior.  Even on a farm planet, I'm sure he's run across a handful of other R2-D2s in the meantime.  Plus its rather clear, based on his treatment of Luke, that he doesn't look back on his interactions with Anakin with fondness.

Watto's Junk Yard / More Wal-Mart Bashing
« on: May 9, 2008, 12:54 PM »
I haven't bothered to look, but do big box stores like Wally have those automated sprinklers, like in an office building?  I'm thinking they do and it's probably the kind of thing where they all go off together.  Which means the whole store would get doused.  And that's going to have a negative impact on a lot of what Wally carries (clothes, electronics, paper goods, the liner notes on CDs and DVDs, etc.).

Did you guys hear that NBC has been rumored to be developing a spin off.  I think I read somewhere that will premier after the superbowl next year.  There really weren't any details, which probably means nothing will happen, so I'm not sure if they'll do a similar mockumentary style at a whole new office, or if maybe it'll be about Toby (is he really going to Costa Rica?)..  Thoughts?  Also, how funny would it be that the new show would be a spin off of an adaptation?

Good episode last night.  Michael did his usual bit of hampering the actual productive influences of his staff, Dwight went off on a power trip that either no one cared about, or was the opposite of what anyone else would have done, Andy showed how pathetic and shallow he is (all show, no go), Pam got to regret more of her decisions when she was with Roy, and Jim actually tried.  It was pretty cool to see him like that.  I'm wondering if Jim will be Michael's new object of affection (he's got a girl, he does better at work, he's well liked at work, basically what Michael is not).

If the Faie is like the concept art, BFII Engineer w/ Keller's cloak and the M&M paint job, it'd be pretty cool.  I might want to pick up a couple of those M&M troopers while I can.  Doesn't is seem like we should be seeing a new Owen and Beru Lars too?  We have the Skywalker infant Twins, a Queen Organa (rumored), we just need that not so happy home for baby Luke...

Watched TPM last night and I have to say that I like the music in it second only to ESB.  I'm not just talking about Duel of the Fates, the whole sound track just seemed richer.  I'm not a music producer or a music-phile (I don't remember what the real term for that is..), but the music just seemed to reinforce the feeling I had when I first watched it in the theater, how struck I was by the wealth and refinement of parts of the Star Wars Universe.  I mean, who here hasn't marveled at the size and scope of the Trade Federation and their ships.  The music seemed to really capture that lush and rich side of things.  Its not that the music was terrible in the others, they just didn't capture the tone the same way, for me that is.

There's a Super-Duper WallyWorld near here that easily has a dozen or more.

How about an Evolutions of the Gonk droid set?

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: A power only one has achieved....
« on: April 29, 2008, 05:01 PM »

I was rereading one of the Star Wars tales comics the other night and there was a comic where Palps sends Vader to kill the Dark Woman, who was an Old Republic Jedi.  As seems to happen a lot to Vader in this time period he almost gets beat, but uses his power to kill her.  All the while she'd been taunting him about being more powerful and low and behold when she dies she comes back as a force ghost.  I think Vader even takes a swipe at her with his saber just to check.

I guess I should have prefaced that all by saying that those stories are definitely EU.

I'd agree that its probably one of those things that some Jedi knew how to do, but got lost through the ages.  Kind of like how Darth Bane has to rediscover how to make sith holograms, since that too had been lost.

How come about half the Stormies had helmets that didn't quite look right?  Am I the only one who noticed it?  My wife kept laughing that Carrie Fisher was all over the first contestant's husband.

We ought to see sometime soon a repaint of the Engineer from the BFII pack.

But Robo's right, a SA Darktrooper would be nice.

Bought the Droid from the ARC-170 battlepack from a guy on eBay.  How come there isn't even a EU-Fanon-Only used by three guys on Rebelscum, name for this one?
