The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: February 18, 2015, 01:42 PM »
A major, *MAJOR* spoiler may have just leaked via Making Star Wars.  I'm not going to say anything more than that.

WHOAAA! And in the very first film no less! Ballsy...

I still maintain that no matter what happens come Christmas, Hasbro is not going to be myopic in their focus on TFA. There ARE going to be other new Stars Wars toys to purchase that have nothing to do with that movie. And there will continue to be.

I think there is room for Rebels and TFA stuff, over the holidays, and beyond.

"SSG: Is the Ghost outside the realm of possibility?

JL: No, definitely itís not outside, no.

SSG: Great.

JL: Itís not something thatís in our immediate future, but we love Rebels.  The Ghost is so iconic and certainly a great option.  The Ghost would be great."

I wouldn't characterize it as wishful thinking so much as a reasonable expectation. I'm not an idiot, I understand what is going on with the line, the industry, the economy, the seasons, the rotation of the sun, etc etc. But this is the very definition of an iconic ship, at least as far as the current media goes. It is a gaping omission from the Rebels toy line-up thus far. The damn thing is practically designed to be an ideal vehicle/playset too, from the cockpit to the living quarters to the docking station for the Phantom.

I get that not everyone is a diehard fan of the show or the toys...that's totally cool. It's not for everyone. But I would not go so far as to imply collectors who are big fans of the show are unhinged from reality for assuming this is going to get made at some point soon. Maybe it's already under development and will be unveiled prior to Christmas, when the second season (which has been confirmed) will be airing. It's not like everything is going to come grinding to a halt come September and all they are going to make is TFA stuff anymore. Hasbro is on record as saying they plan to continue supporting Rebels, so I think it is fair to expect more to come. And there's not that many other vehicles there to choose from at this point.

I don't think it has anything to do with the movies, or being in a movie, or whatever. Eventually, IMHO, it'll happen. It's a major part of "The Canon" now. (It took them awhile to get to the MTT too...)

Just my two cents~ :)

So has anyone seen any sign of a third wave of GoT Legacy 6" figures out of Toy Fair?  All of the images that I've seen only show the wave 2 figures.

I heard that wave 3 wasn't shown...

That is not a good sign IMO, especially given the fact there has not even been 1 confirmed figure from that wave leaked to this point. (Although I do specifically recall them saying Tywin would be coming)

As someone who lives in Richmond VA and has made that short trek north to DC countless times, I can personally attest that it is not nearly as barren as the show is making it out to be. There are LOTS of sources of water between the two cities, not the least of which being the Mattaponi River and Lake Anna.

I'd love to know what road they are taking...makes sense they would stay off I95, so I am guessing they are supposed to be on one of the less traveled parallel routes like 301 or Rt. 1. PLENTY of sources of food and water along those roads.

I wonder why they didn't just let Eugene drink the water they found and then see what happens. If he doesn't die or get roofied, might as well drink up.

Is Jedi Defender going to be part of the gladhanding strokeathon known as "The Pulse Initiative"?

If you're sitting around the campfire with your buds chowing down on Lassie, it's probably just as well you take off that white collar, yeah.  :P

At this point, after everything they have been through, shouldn't they just go ahead and shoot any weird new people that show up out of the blue right off the bat? Why wait around to get eaten/raped/sacrificed?

Saw Kingsmen tonight...enjoyed it thoroughly, except that the wife and I were forced to sit in the very first row, which was brutal on the neck.

BBTS has some shots and preorders up for Reaction Classic Trek Kirk!

I give 'em credit, that's ballsy for a first wave.

There is plenty they can excite me about that has nothing to do with Ep 7, so I am hopeful. New Rebels figures are a must, as are glimpses of the 6" figures we know are coming but have never been shown before, like 3PO, Boushh, and the Emperor. No reason at all for them to hold that stuff back. And against all hope I am quietly praying for confirmation of The Ghost in 2015.

Also excited to see all the new NECA and Funko Reaction stuff, since they still make toys you can buy in stores.

On another note...we're already at Wednesday before the show and no new leaks yet? Hasbro must really have their stuff under lock and key for a change.

Sony brings Marvel into the Amazing World of Spider-Man

I'm not sure what that means? Amy Pascal just got fired so this seems like it would be up in the air to some extent now...
