Anyone going to get one with a friend or buddy who might be able to help them get an extra, and doesn't want to sell it for big bucks on eBay, let me know.  I'd love you forever.

So what's the deal between the exclusive and retail?   No pipe and salacious crumb?

Max Von Sydow does seem to be a big question mark here.  He wasn't present for the table read, or at least for the photo.

That's not him down on the bottom left facing away from the camera talking to Mark Hamill?

Yeah, I'm all over this set.  I just wish they were making the firehouse too like the original design had.

Lucky you, mine had a nice black smudge right on the top of his helmet.

I thought Jackson and Neeson were two of the more redeeming qualities of the prequals too.  I don't care for Natalie Portman in general, so her sucking as an actress just fits my thought of her, personally.

I thought McGregor was pretty awesome as well.  He played the part perfectly.  I think as much as it's Lucas' fault, I think some actors also maybe just can't do that kind of work while others can (Ford, McGregor, etc.).

Sam Jackson is obviously a very popular actor, but he doesn't have much range or ability when it comes to actually acting.  Honestly, in the 9 million movies I've seen him in, Django Unchained is the only one where I thought he actually gave a real performance... where he wasn't just being Sam Jackson in whatever costume they gave him. 

In the Prequels, I thought he was HORRIBLE.  "A Sith, Lord?!"

McGregor was the only one I felt did a decent job, and Ian McDirmind, but he was familiar with his character and still came off as borderline comedic when he started going "no... No... NO!!!" and "Power!!!!!!!!!  Unlimited Power!!!!!!!!!."

Tried to snag one and it wouldn't let me add any to my cart.  Oh well.

For some reason I'm less concerned with the actors in this thing and more concerned with the story.    After all, TPM had some actors I really loved and was excited about and well... look how that turned out. :P

Having lots of big known actors was *part of TPM's problem to me.  I like this formula better and it's very OT in style... actors with some credibility who aren't household names - followed by one incredibly established older actor who may not be as familiar to younger fans.

The other problem with the acting in TPM was George Lucas, plain and simple.  If you can't get a decent performance out of Sam Jackson, Liam Neeson, Natalie Portman... then you're not much of a director.

Jamie Lee Curtis is rumored to play his love-interest.

I'm thinking this is the one where Chicago finally DOES make it look easy.  Not every game can go to OT and the Blues were up 2-0 before losing four straight last year too.  They've got to be freakig out even if they'd never admit it.
