Oh - also - so this is the first SW movie without a limb being severed or an injury along those lines, right?

And did anyone catch any 1138s?

No limbs being cut off but two pretty significant impalements!

I thought for sure that Rey would take Ren's hand in the duel.  Set him further on the path to becoming Vader.

All excellent points.  I totally agree about the stuff on the cargo ship.  Entertaining, but extraneous. 

Perhaps Von Sydow plays Kanan Jarrus?

Palpatine's holo was an enormous floating head in ESB...

They never elaborated on how that lightsaber ended up in that box. 

My mind is still swimming with this movie.  Just awesome and completely heartbreaking.

You can't look at the Kohl's ticket price as any indication of anything.  There is ALWAYS a sale.

IIRC, from the review at Jeditemplearchives says
the droid socket is changed for Chooper (platform for his short legs, guess that means other astromechs won't fit?), the back end is closed, the cockpit inside redesigned, probably to accommodate 5 POA figures.

My son has this one... The back panel on this ship comes off, and the floor of the droid socket can slip out.  This slip-out is used to raise the floor for Chopper to fit properly.  Removed, standard astromechs sit fine.

There's a few boning scenes with no nudity (you only see Kristen Ritter's back) in the early episodes.

No nudity, but pretty graphic nonetheless, particularly for a TV show.

We only have the last episode of Jessica Jones to watch, and it has been a pretty fun show.  I think they may have stretched out the plot a bit to fill out episodes, but overall, I like it.

I echo the thoughts here.  I even said while watching that the Carol-Morgan stuff was stupid.  This was underwhelming.

I saw a video on this attraction...  These are indeed replicas, not actual props.

What is the music behind that video?  Is that from one of the prequels or a video game?

Thanks for hooking us up!  You have definitely earned plenty of collecting karma, and if there's anything we recipients can do for you, don't hesitate to ask!

Lucas has lost it in my opinion.  TPM and AOTC were boring movies.  If you are making a kids series, you don't talk about political disputes over trade routes in the opening credits.

A major problem with the prequels is that he ignored the OT.  Kenobi states that Yoda trained him.  Sure you can retcon it into Yoda trained all the younglings or that it is easier to tell Luke that Yoda trained him instead of telling Luke that Yoda trained the guy who trained the guy who trained him, but he deliberately ignored that link to bring in Qui Gon as Kenobi's master.   Leia's memory of her mother is laughable as well.  The whole three seconds that she saw her does not a memory make, regardless of the Force. 

This X 10000.  I don't hate the prequels as much as most, but there were so many lost opportunities.  For example, the Falcon should have been in there, somewhere, and Kenobi should have been on it.  Fans went CRAZY when they saw the first shots of the Falcon sets for TFA, and even more so for the appearance in the trailer.  For a guy so keen on compositing a shot to call back to a scene from a previous movie, Lucas is totally tone-deaf sometimes.
