That demo speaks with big money at the box office.

If they do recast him I sure as hell hope they don't try to turn him into a 22 year old heartthrob.  That short list up there is so uninspiring I don't know where to start.  It's all Hunger Games, Divergent, Maze Runner demographic stuff.

Bad, bad idea.
In all fairness, those films you mention are mega hits and is easy to see why Disney would be interested in that formula.

Target pre-order will also nab you a $5 GC right now.

Is there a promo code for this?  That offer doesn't show up on either version on the site.
This was on the non-exclusive version, but I'm not sure if it is still active. I got an e-mail from them saying if I wanted the exclusive version I needed to cancel and reorder. Did that and lost my promo.  Did an online chat with a CS rep and he took $5 right off my order.

I see at least one Poe Dameron there...

Completely agree.  I don't think it is popular and successful because it is rated R. I think it has been successful because it is a different animal than all the other comic book films. 

Again and again, when the filmmakers respect the original creations there is success.  See all of the MCU films, and see the FF remake as the opposite evidence.

Matt you are absolutely right.

favorite deadpool scene?

i think mine was the baby hand
Time to make the chimi-*******-changas!!!

Ordered the AT-At and Snowspeeder 2-Pk from Amazon as well as finally adding the Rebels TIE Fighter.  That 2Pk was going for ~$5 on Amazon.

Found Rey's Speeder, black resistance X-wing with closed foils, and First Order Star Destroyer yesterday.

I grabbed three TFA books at Five Below yesterday...  All of them kids books, one was a look and find with BB-8 on the cover, there was a cardboard cut-out assembly book, and the Ships of the Galaxy book. All, of course, $5 or less.

I can say that generally, my boy identifies with "boy" toys. He knows that the Barbies and Ponies are "girl" toys in the "girl" aisle.  We don't teach him this stuff, but I assume it is a mix of marketing, talking with friends and emulating my excitement over the things I like.  This is a regular topic of conversation around the house.

That said, he's got the Lego Rey Speeder and he loves it.  Would he love a Rey figure?  I dunno.  Rey isn't really a very feminine character compare to, say, Padme. 

I found it at TRU.  My son loves the ships more than he does action figures, so I have gone overboard with these for him.   :)  It is tough finding information on what is out, what to expect, etc.  Hasbro collectors have it good.  :)

Anyone else collecting the Hot Wheels ships?  I bought my son the remaining ships he was missing for Christmas, and I just picked up the 2-pack with the Star Destroyer and Mon Cal frigate.  The only one that eludes me so far is the Rebels TIE which is in a 2-pack with the Ghost.  I even have the two versions of the snowspeeder (Luke's is packed in with a "playset").

The ships at the start of that clip are really awesome.
