Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread

It was originally scheduled to come out the week after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and two weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy, both of which will do huge business. It stood no chance, and probably still won't in February for the reasons Bill gave.

Someone on Reddit attempted to tie all of the X-Men movies together (spoiler alert). Some goofy stuff in there and a lor of flaws are exposed, but still an interesting read.

Wasn't Orci one of the writers of Into Darkness, along with many other terrible, terrible movies that have been released over the last few years but have somehow made millions and millions of dollars? These are the types of people that need to be blacklisted from Hollywood, not directing major blockbusters.

I think they could have achieved the look they wanted if they angled the ball joint a little bit. Really Dagobah Luke only needs to hold his backpack straps and keep his arms straight to do handstands and try to lift his X-Wing. I also get what they were going for here, but I can't really figure out why it looks so bad either. The Marvel figures with these joints look great.

Finally caught DOFP yesterday. Not as good as Captain America: Winter Soldier, but much, much better than Amazing Spidey 2. Maybe a peg below First Class too, but there wasn't much that I disliked about it.

I guess the one question I have is where do they go from here? I know Apocalypse is coming next but is that going to use the First Class cast or the old cast? Because honestly I have no desire to see another movie with the original trilogy cast.

I got the email too and went to see if I left any credit card/paypal info in my account since I've literally only used eBay once, and that was ten years ago to buy some VOTC figures. Will probably stay that way too.

UGH - so I picked up the Jek-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter on an eBay auction that claimed the set was New/Unused/Unopened.

Well - it arrived today and imagine my shock to find the two clear tape circular seals that hold the top of the box onto the bottom were both cut.

Opened up the box to find the mini-figure fully assembled INSIDE the bag and then found that the bag was one of those resealable type bags.

Does anyone else have this set? Is that how the bag was? Did the mini-figure come pre-assembled - most Lego sets have the head, torso, legs, hair/helmet all as separate pieces.

Not to mention the fact that Jek-14's hair-piece is missing. I'm not OVERLY concerned about that since I can always request another one from Lego Customer Service to replace it.

My complaint is that it truly wasn't a new/unopened set with those tape seals cut.

Am I being unreasonable?

Little late, but LEGO polybags are never taped or stapled or anything. It's like buying a bag of chips. Would you buy one that was taped shut? Definitely get your money back Pete.

Not too bad of a set actually, and if these are ever discounted I might snag one if the price is right. The Imperial figures are all great and I'm assuming this is the "improved" AT-ST they sold at K-Mart last year, which I never got (and my 09 WM AT-ST has cracked leg joints). Only stinkers are Han and Leia really, and it's not that those are bad figures, they're just old, oddly enough. Also too bad they couldn't throw the movie accurate VOTC Chewie in there since I don't think that headsculpt has ever been rereleased.

Star Wars Universe / Star Wars Spin-Off #1 - The Thread!

Some info has dropped on the first Spinoff: Release Date is December 16, 2016; Gareth Edwards to direct

EDIT: Whoops, checked everywhere EXCEPT the forum where the info was already posted. ::)

Saw these on Entertainment Earth just now and they have the figures available for preorder for $22 each. I hope they offer a case because I really do want all of these even if I prefer the TAS designs over the simpler TNBA designs.

Gonna do my best to see them at ACL, especially if I can get press passes through work. They added the second weekend last year and tickets were really cheap since it's almost too much... hopefully that's the case again this year.

I caught Godzilla last week... I enjoyed the parts with Bryan Cranston and the final 20 minutes but man did the middle blow. The guy who plays the main character reeeeeeeally needs to rethink a career in Hollywood.

Worst part: The scene set in 1999 that features a kid playing with a 2004 LEGO Snowspeeder. Do they REALLY think they can get away with BS like that?

Yeah, people have been snagging the SSD everywhere it's sold. It's always been that way with LEGO though. Anytime there are rumors of a set's retirement, people go crazy (see the Jabba's Palace thing last year when stores sold out of the set because of the mosque controversy). Some people have been saving up for the SSD since it came out, and want one before it's gone, while scalpers see the dollar signs.

Just as long as they don't hire the guy who did Guy Pearce's makeup in Prometheus. Blech.

Word is that the SSD was quietly retired, so whatever is left out there is it.
