TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)

I kind of agree.  I think that at the end of RotS, Obi-Wan and Yoda know that Anakin turned and became Darth Vader.  I also think they believe that Darth Vader died on Mustafar, only to learn later that he survived and is hunting Jedi.

I could see them sharing this info with Organa, but it could also be argued that the less Organa knows being near Palpatine the better.  I definitely don't think that Owen and Beru knew.  They knew that they didn't want (or Obi-Wan didn't want) Luke going off-world.  They knew Anakin and probably what Anakin did to the Sandpeople.

For the sake of a cool reveal, I don't think that Ashoka knows, and it should be a cool moment (S2 finale?) when it is revealed.  I also hope that Vader ends up destroying Ashoka, maybe even in a raid for some information (Death Star Plans anyone?).  It would be a cool arc for the character that is ultimately tragic

Here's what's been on my mind...

We know that Yoda and Obi-Wan and obviously Palpatine know that Vader is Anakin...  Is this common knowledge?  Does Ashoka know?  That could be a cool reveal.

I agree.  I loved Agent Carter.  Lots of cool nods to references made in the films.  I think the shorter season was perfect, no filler, no stretching.  I was also impressed that they didn't get her right into another relationship right away. 

Anyone looking for well written, strong female characters needs to watch this show.

3PO was supposed to be in there too but I suspect they are having major issues with that figure right now.

Or they have bumped him back to be part of the TFA assortment as safe money says he looks the same.  Your suspicion also makes a lot of sense though.

Additionally, even 6" Greedo calls 6" Leia a peg warmer.

The press releases on this all mention Peter Parker so the Morales idea is off the table.

I think one of the things that Feige brings is the experience in adapting these characters for the screen in such a way that "respects" the source material (for lack of a better term).  I think these studio hacks get involved and start screwing around with things for no other reason than because they can. KF takes the source and adapts it into the framework they have established.

I think many liked the writing of Soidey's personality in the new films more than they actually like Garfield if they are honest. ASM2 was a mess, but they did  capture the "spirit" of Spidey better than the (admittedly better) McGuire films did.

Chicago's pretty white at the moment.  At least 6-8" down already and projecting blizzard conditions from 4pm - 9pm tonight.  Can easily see 1.5-2' by the time it's all done.

Good luck East coast, it's coming your way next.
It's coming late here to CT. We already have about a foot and a half from last week. I hate snow.

Interesting that it is "EPISODE 3 IN 3D!!!!!!.  Oh, and also EII as well."  Even they know that AotC is the weakest SW film.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« on: January 5, 2015, 04:23 PM »
According to my personal scale expert (aka Jesse), the Hero Series X-Wing is actually pretty close to perfect scale match for the 3.75" figures -

29 Inches long on this ship means it's actually 1/17 scale, almost on the nose.  Star Wars figures range anywhere from 1/17 to 1/20 (the newer more lean to 1/20).

I'd say he's right.  I put some action figures out with this thing (my son got it for his birthday), and they look close.  WAY to small to be 6" scale.   

Part of me wonders what a 2.5" scale line would look like with ships made to accurate scale.  That BMF (while awesome) is still under-scaled, though not as bad as the 78 version.  BUT, if they made a Falcon that size-ish with smaller figures, they could probably hit the point.  But then I think how many would be let down if they didn't get that BMF (with rectangular deflector) at 3.75" scale.  Maybe a line limited in scope?  I loved the M.A.S.K. figures back in the day, and I appreciate now that the smaller scale of the person allowed them to create better vehicles for those plastic men to ride in.

For vehicle lovers, the 3.75" scale hurts getting accurate scaling.
