The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: June 17, 2016, 09:00 PM »
Garage sale gold. Another clone wars Jedi fighter (incredibly with all missiles), Corporate Alliance Droid tank missing a few parts, a BARC speeder (the wheelless version) with 501st figure, a tri fighter (might be ROTS) and a V-19 torrent missing an engine, a missible and the canopy (but I might have one some where). Also loose obi-wan and anakin...yawn, though it was cloth skirt Anakin. The rest of the stuff was other collections.

I found that Movie Heroes Fighter Tank  (missing the launchers) at a yard sale.  It's good to find anything action figure related at a garage sale, and I paid 50 cents for it but damn, what a hollow thing....they wanted $20 for that?

I never got $10 AT-AT's.  :'(

I still never got the cruise missile trooper. The idea of a non-removable figure was offensive. Strangely, in all my garage sale goings, I've never come across one or parts of one.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors
« on: June 16, 2016, 10:28 PM »
Most of modern Star Wars' play sets have been half-baked.

The POTF2 ones were more like set pieces for a stage version of Star Wars. The most realized set being the Hoth one, which was of course, the one of the four that needed updating from vintage the least (and they still got the turret wrong). I never owned the carbon freeze set, though...was that POTJ?

The cardstock diorama set were great display pieces, but a kid would destroy those in a few days.

Episode one...the generator duel wasn't much. The hanger was hampered by the Qui-Gonn electronic WOOKIE RAGE Jedi attack figure (it was sort of fun to make a small Liam Neeson attack everything). Oh, and that R2 case that was sort of a trade federation hall way. Yeah.

Episode 2....the Geonosis Arena had potential, the idea of smaller sets connecting to it. But it didn't look good. I never owned one. Later modded in COBRA MOUNTAIN...why did Cobra have battle droid parts on the floor?

Episode 3. Akator Mustafar....if they'd made the bottom a separatist control room, it would've felt substantial instead of just a big stand for Anakin and Obi-Wan.

I sort of understand Hasbro. There were always large vehicles they could make instead.

Yeah, they were shelf warmers, but by then there was a glut of Star Wars product building up everywhere.

Air speeder was cool. The pilot was oddly quite tall.

The Cloud Car was a disappointment for me at the time. Maybe because the real deal was better and wouldn't be made in the modern line for a decade. And the silly shooting nose cone (means every time you find a used one, that nose is missing!)

The Rebel Speeder Bike is worth getting, even if it seems more like a riding lawnmower.  :P

Well, it's still PG-13. Wolverine 3 will be R.

Apocalypse isn't doing as well as hoped, at least compared to Days of Future's Past.

But it really looks like TMNT's film franchise might be dead now.

Found Goss Toowers, Sarco Plank and Atsy at Wal-Mart.

Whoo-hoo.  :P

Finally saw it. I didn't care for some of the opening fight scenes' style, either.

I'd forgotten how Zemo got all that info. It's only been hours.  :P

His plan depends on room service being nosy. "If she doesn't look in the bathroom, my plan is doomed!" Or something.

The character was so-so, because the actor didn't do much for me. I don't know why they bothered to call him Zemo, though.

How did Iron Man know who Spidey was? Is he like Lex Luthor in Dawn of Justice. RICH GENIUSES CAN FIGURE OUT ANYTHING...cuz rich...and smart.

Next movie
 Stark: "That's you, isn't it...BROTHER VOODOO."

Ah, the reveal...hard to take after too many super hero movies. I mean, Jack "Sandman" Napier killed Tony's mom and dad? Was Tony's mom's name Martha?

Anyway, it was good.  Nothing terribly wrong with it other than Chris Evans' lack of charisma and Winter Soldier's supporting lack of charisma.  :D

Saw it and it was pretty decent. No great surprises, but entertaining.  The new versions of characters were mostly good. Jubilee gets shorted again. It's hard to reconcile Angel with  X-Men The Last Stand's Angel even in the messed up timeline where people haven't aged much since the Cuban missile crisis. But I guess it's like the comics in that regard!  ;)

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

We should probably be more concerned about the FOUR WEEKS of re-shoots Disney bosses allegedly just ordered after this movie tested so badly...yikes.

Also surprised to read both Mara sisters were in the running for the lead role.  Kate would have been the bomb I think...

They have to film interaction shots for the new CGI sidekick they are adding to make the film family-friendly.  ;)

Maybe Meebur Gascon will be added?  :o

Do Walkers have to do well on the AT-ACT to get into AT-AT school?

Not familiar with the comics at all. Seemed a mess o'weird to me, but enough to get me to watch again.

Anyone still watching? Anyone? Bueller?

Once again they destroy a good place.  Well, a decent place under the thumb of a nutty woman. What place will they bring doom to in season 2 part 2? Which son will out weird the other, Nick or Chris?

Can't hardly wait.  :-\

I think this one will under perform and they'll reduce the budget to future installments (this one has big budget, but it's less than Into Darkness), if not consider taking the film franchise in a new direction.
