The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Anakin Skywalker - The Role
« on: April 22, 2016, 03:15 PM »
So, it begs the question:  was the role of Anakin Skywalker, to some degree, cursed?

George Lucas isn't a very good director.  That's your curse.  He isn't very good when it comes to casting decisions, and he's much worse when it comes to directing and writing dialogue.  It didn't help that the stories were awful too.  He took good actors in those prequels and had them blandly delivering lines to green walls.  The performances sucked, the direction sucked, and the casting sucked.

In capable hands, I'm sure Anakin could be done as well as any other roll could be.

Wow, that was painless.  The coupon worked, great price, paid with Paypal... and now I don't have to look for it.

Thanks Jeff!

If anyone missed the Comic Con T-1000, there's a seller on Amazon who has a few for $12 shipped:

Count me among those of you who are bored to tears... I'm going to give it some more time since every time they show the 'look at season 2' stuff it looks like there's some action in there, but 1 episode into season 2 and I'm wondering what the point of this show is.

So freaking great.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

No rating that I've seen but the rumors are it's pretty dark.

I've watched the trailer half a dozen times now and I'm actually really excited about this.  A few years ago we thought there'd never be another Star Wars movie, now we already have another one to look forward to that soon after E7... if they can be smart about these and keep them fresh this is going to be a hell of a decade for Star Wars.

Perfect... I'll skip the online shipping stuff then and wait to buy it the old fashioned way.

For some reason I thought this was an online exclusive but now I see Toys R Us is taking web pre-orders.  Does that mean it'll be in stores too?

I haven't found FN-2187, Unkar, Han, Resistance Rey, Hooded Ren, or Nien Nunb anywhere.

Funny you say that, because I initially thought I'd gotten him out of the MTT, but then when I looked it up all the photos were of him in the plastic tray.

So was there a context where that figure was released in a sealed baggie?  I'm pretty sure I got him from opening some vehicle or playset, I just can't remember what it was.  I didn't put him in that bag and I certainly didn't buy him on eBay.

Half-way there.  Thanks!

Then I'll delete the thread...

And, I'm wondering what set this sealed Obi-Wan came out of:

I finally scored the Patrolman T-1000 yesterday.  There was a novelty store near my house that also sold toys and I hadn't been in there in years.  It somehow became all collectible toys and they had one mixed in with all the regulars- it was $8.  So patience paid off there...
