I know Gravity isn't accurate in a lot of ways but it was still a hell of a ride, and it probably took a few days off of my life. I loved it.

And apparently they made a short film from the perspective of that Inuit that Bullock speaks to over the radio. It'll be on the DVD.

I'm interested to see where the virus storyline goes. Harry Potter coughed right into the shower water before he passed out so I'm assuming that comes into play at some point. BTW I had a good laugh when he talked to Daryl at the beginning, as I imagine that's what people look like when they meet Norman Reedus in real life.

Crazy woman was really weird. I'm guessing this comes into play again as the season goes on but as of now I'm just left asking WTF.

LOVED the shopping center portion though. I also thought Waterboy's friend was biting it due to the "Walking Dead Rule of Black People/Minor Characters Who Have More Than Two Lines." That wasn't the same chopper as the one from the first episode was it?

Those look AWESOME. I've criticized Mattel in the past for their shoddy attempts at 3.75 inch lines, but these actually look like they could hold up to Hasbro offerings. While I'd prefer more traditional comic outfits, I'm down for a few of these.

Apparently Lucas started working on the sequel trilogy back in 2011.

I finally saw all of these today at TRU. Multiples of each. I still can't bring myself to buy any though. The Sandtrooper does looks REALLY nice.

I'm... a little underwhelmed even though I know these are prototypes. Can Torryn's arms even move? Do we really need a redone Snowtrooper?

Not sure what to think of Yoda yet. Looks great in that shot of him in the backpack but the scale looks off in that individual picture. Hopefully the final result is more like the Clone Wars SA Yoda, which I still consider to be the "ultimate" 3.75 inch Yoda.

Luke looks awesome though, even though my OCD of having all figures have the same style of articulation will hate it. :P

It's also hard for me to grasp that the last Dagobah Luke and Yoda came out ten years ago.

Glad these will be online. The Sears Grand I found last year's sets at appears to have gutted their toy section. Last time I went in there in July, there were empty shelves and overstock, no toys in sight. So I'm SOL for finding these in person.

Damn, that's kind of a shocker. Went through a Clancy phase for about 2 years after 9/11. Loved me some of the Splinter Cell video games.

I haven't even seen pictures of these. Are these 5 POA figures or are they more like Marvel Universe style?

Ordered Mysterio on Amazon for $11.99. They also had newer figures like Electra, Rhino, etc. for the same price. Came to like $17 after tax and shipping but since I'll never see the figure in stores it's a decent price.

1. Dash Rendar
2. Leebo
3. Guri
4. Jan Ors
5. Jaxxon
6. Jerec
7. Snoova
8. Vlix
9. Deshann (from Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast)
10. Zorba the Hutt

It felt awkward, rushed, and just kind of dull and underwhelming overall. I'll stick with it for a while and hope that it finds its legs, but I can't see the average TV viewer seeing anything in that pilot that made them think it is must see TV.

Thought I had responded to this but I saw Elysium a few weeks back. It wasn't bad, but it did feel rather cliche. Some cool action shots in the beginning though, and the CGI looked cool.

I pose mine neutrally on the display shelf for space reasons but when playing with them testing the articulation, I like to put them in "running while shooting behind" poses.

I have other "favorites" though... for troopers it's some sort of "at attention" type pose. Then I'll usually have Vader standing tall with his hands near his hips, showing off his height/power I guess. Anytime I can get a Jedi to hold a lightsaber with two hands is great too.
