Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Super Hero/Comic Book Movies
« on: February 21, 2014, 07:18 AM »
Ugh.  Fox just doesn't get it.  Why swap the race of a super-main character other than to get people talking?  THIS is exactly what pisses the core fans off, their utter disregard for the characters.  While a character like, say, Hawkeye isn't exactly like his comic counterpart, Feige and the others didn't go, "hmm...  let's make him a woman.  That's creative!"

I am not one for slavish devotion to the source material, but stunts like this are ridiculous.

This reminds me of The Fifth Element, where the creators are self aware of some of the ridiculousness, but they are happy to own it.

So the Rebels are the Wolverines.  Got it.

Compendium 2 was $25 at Amazon a few days ago.  It's up to $30 now.

I think the brand is shaking off EU so that they don't need to worry about any continuity.  Seems like it now extends to merchandise.  I am sure the Mouse House doesn't want Hasbro making Jaina Solo figures when their EP7 negates her existence in some way.

How do those shoulders work?

Unfortunately, to get Groot, you have to get the rest.  He's the B-A-F.

Back to the spoiler...  Pretty awesome, and to be honest, this should be something added into either AotC or RotS.  It would be awesome to see this as a  post-credits coda on AotC: SE.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Movie Spin-Offs?

I have often said that there is a vast pool of fan talent that they could easily tap into.  This is a great idea, at least from a perspective of input.

It blows my mind when these big companies get things so wrong when there would be thousands of nerds willing to churn out better products for little investment.  Think Transformers, DC movies, etc. etc.

Tap into those that love the product.  Emotional investment can produce dividends.

That business with Coulston and the surgery was a definite holy **** moment for me.

It has gotten much better in the past few episodes.

I saw a clip or read a story with the producers, and things sound grim for Judith. They wore or less said that there are limits to what they could show. I will try to dig it up.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures

I agree with Jesse here.  At the minimum, that arm on his torso looks like it turns out and the ankles look articulated.

I grabbed one of these from TJ Maxx for $39 as well.  He's right, this box is massive.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:31 AM »
Not possible.  2 of each new figure?  For both waves?  What a ridiculous concept.  How are we supposed to complain about assortments if they're going to pull this two of everything new with no repacks BS!?  Cripes.
I do kind of question the logic of having two waves with what will appear to most people as the same figure, Wedge and Dack.  This after the dud that Pilot Biggs proved to be.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I still don't see how this makes it out in 2015...hope I am wrong, but I bet anything that gets pushed back.
I'm with you.  This gets pushed back to May 2016, which should have been the date in the first place.
