The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I like it... gives off the vibe that it has been 20 years and now some you-know-what is about to hit the fan.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)
« on: November 6, 2014, 12:11 PM »
Has anyone been watching? Just marathoned the last three episodes, and so far a whole bunch of "meh." The latest episode with Ezra in the Imperial training center was pretty good though. Again I feel like the show isn't about "Rebels" per-se, but "bandits who cause minor annoyances to the Empire."

Best parts of the show? The music and the vehicles. I LOVED the TIE Fighter transport. Such a shame we'll never get anything in toy form.

I spotted these yesterday too. Dunno about everywhere else but these are NOT in the usual Star Wars section, but they have a special endcap for the Christmas exclusives. It had this set, the Marvel Legends set, a Dwayne Johnson WWE figure, some Minecraft stuff, etc.

The set looks nice (really nice), but I'm passing for now. I'd rather snag the regular Speeder Bike first.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

Went searching for these for a while today and of course came up empty. The only Star Wars stuff I saw was the giant Maul figure and some puzzles. One store did have a fresh case of the 3.75 inch Wave 4, but other than that, nothing. I'll have to get one online I guess.

I must be in the minority because I really enjoyed that episode. There was just something about seeing these ******** who think they know what's best for everyone and claim that they're protecting everyone, and then watching Beth tear their stuff up with relative ease because she actually HAS been through things. I enjoyed the flashback to that random episode where she was a cutter too.

I'm honestly kinda bummed it looks like we won't have a conclusion for a few weeks. Great cliffhanger ending there, although really the whole season has been really good with them. Has me wondering what happened there, and how it all ties back to Daryl in the woods with Michonne. I'm thinking Carol and Daryl run across Lil Chris Rock at some point and send Carol in to infiltrate and bring him back...

Was I the only one hoping to see the Vatos from Season 1 again since we were back in Atlanta?

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: X-Wing/TIE Fighter Rerelease?

Didn't know these were out already. I have a little USB Super Nintendo controller I use for emulated games but that's obviously not a flight stick so it probably won't work. I'll have to check the local electronics shops to see if they still sell any.

I'm seeing these all over retail now... Target has a few, TRU has a bunch and even local comic book stores are getting lots of stock in. I just haven't been able to bite the bullet and purchase any, even with stuff like the EE BOGO sale.

Snagged Jedi Luke at Target this weekend while doing a run for cheap Halloween candy. No Vader but they had Chewie and a Sandtrooper too. Almost bought Chewie but the paint apps on the nose were way off so I passed for now.

LEGO / Re: Recent Acquisitions

Got the B-Wing today, with Double VIP points ending tomorrow at the LEGO Store. The clerk hinted that there might be some online deals for Black Friday.

Still a whole lot of season left (and it has been a crazy season so far) but there's a lot of stuff about the playoff committee to be iffy about. Like how some of the committee members are acting Athletic Directors at schools. Should be lots of controversy over who gets in and who is left out.

The Wookiee Arcade / X-Wing/TIE Fighter Rerelease?

Special downloadable versions of both X-Wing and Tie Fighter will soon be released on Good Old Games. They'll be $10 each.

For that price you're getting not just the special editions of the games (which had slightly higher resolutions and improved sound, as well all of both games' expansions), but more importantly they'll be editions of the games that will run on a modern PC without the need to tinker.

I don't think I've played these games in around 15 years so I'm definitely in.

Another great episode tonight, really a TWD comic fan's wet dream. SO GLAD they're not stretching out the Hunters arc. I really want to see who was hiding behind Daryl in the trees.

Minor nitpick: the group splitting up again.

Man, that was ESB level dark. Spader sounded great!

Marvel's reaction to the leak was awesome too.

Rumor is there's a Beth-centric episode coming in 2 weeks so I'm assuming that's the next time we actually see her.

I was kind of preoccupied during the last 30 minutes (plan to rewatch later), wasn't that Gareth the Terminus leader at the end there with Bob? Or was it fireworks guy?
