Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines
« on: December 22, 2015, 03:37 PM »
I walked into TRU today and found a single B&W Frankenstein hanging on the pegs and after poking around I also found a single B&W Wolfman as well. Those were the only two they had, which was perfect because those were the only two I needed. These worked out a lot better for me than I initially expected.  :)

Also bought Leatherface for $10 off eBay.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

No - the back story is that apparently they moved the senate from Coruscant to Chandrilla, and then from Chandrilla to Hosnian Prime - the Hosnian system is the one that got fried, which Poe mentions. Coruscant is safe.

Thank you, I do remember the Chandrilla bit from Aftermath, but wasn't aware it had moved again after that.

Was the Republic/Resistance totally unaware they were building this massive planet sized weapon? One would assume that would take many years to complete. Seems like a hard secret to keep.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but am I right to assume Coruscant was one of the Republic planets destroyed?

I think the MVS/Kanan theory is brilliant!

Palpatine's holo was an enormous floating head in ESB...

Yeah, good point, that occurred to me right after I posted that. I still hope he's big. Nothing hokey about that IMO, it's more of a stretch to imagine every single alien race be the same relative size and proportion IMHO.

I missed that Han called Kylo "Ben" at the scene on the catwalk. I heard him say something but didn't catch it. Interesting.

Anyone else have a small stroke before they realized Snoke was a hologram and not a giant?

That was pretty cool.  Well done special effects.

I'm kinda hoping that Snoke turns out to be the size of Yoda.

No, I think he really is THAT big. Holograms are typically the same size as people in the SW Universe, or smaller. We have never seen them bigger but I suppose it is possible. I think it would actually be cool if he was that big.

I get the First Order rising from the ashes of the Empire, but I don't quite grasp the differentiation between the Republic and the Resistance. Once the Republic was re-established, what is there really to resist? It seems as though the FO got chased out to the Outer Rim, which fits with the Aftermath storyline.

WTF was up with the lightsaber "calling" to Rey and the nutty visions she had? That was fascinating. I'm pretty sure they showed Kylo gutting Constable Zuvio in there, but I can't be sure. (Not like the guy popped up anywhere else)

I love that they are still finding weird new ways to use the Force. Stopping the blaster ray was a true Oh Snap moment, and the mind reading stuff was creepy. (Imagine if Darth Vader could have done that, no need to blow up Alderaan he would have known instantly where the Rebel hideout was from Leia)

If they had wanted to kill Phasma they would have just shot her. She will be back. I still cant believe she never took the helmet off.

The Guavians looked cool as hell. I kept wondering if the Asian guy was the dude from The Raid.

I liked the Parkman from Heroes and Miles from LOST cameos. :)

I was lucky enough to find the TIE Pilot and "Resistance Trooper" on the pegs at TRU this morning on my way into work. Great way to kick off the day!

Terrific, not perfect, but then none of them really are. I'd love to know how much Mark Hamill got paid for those epic 30 seconds.  :D

I had more than a few questions but still need to let it sink in.

Daisy Ridley was effing amazing!

Heading out in about 30...furiously pre gaming now.  :D

Wow...currently 98% positive on Rotten Tomatoes, universal critical acclaim?  Lets see if it passes the Fanboy test

The dork at Rebelscum seemed to like it.   :D

Its is entirely possible the movie is that good. I'm so happy these will be part of my kids' childhood experience and not those wretched prequels. At 8 and 10, they are at the perfect age, IMO.

Please don't ruin Rom or the Micronauts.  :-\

“JJ did it,” comedian Patton Oswalt tweeted.

“It was epic, awesome and perfect,” added Rainn Wilson.

That's all I needed to know, if there was any doubt.  ;D

Yeah, good point...I was thinking more of Anakin, in any of those movies. Just horrible. And Samuel Jackson was terrible too. IMHO.

At last! Worth the wait, unless they decide not to include the regular gold arm to swap out. That would be weak sauce.

I honestly think the PT will look ten times worse after this week when everyone sees how incredible the new film is and how it hit all the right notes that were so disastrously ignored the previous go round. (far less CGI, better actors, etc)

I saw a couple of stores finally restocked these last night so I dared the 10:30pm trip to Walmart and was rewarded by finding a full case still on the pallet.  ;D

Finally, officially caught up with everything for 2015 toys. Now to start shopping for everyone else... :P
