The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2
« on: October 22, 2013, 02:54 PM »
I take back what I said...just doing some scaling, they are almost spot on to the actual heights of Fisher and Ford.  I think we're just used to having really tall Princess Leia figures :-[

Is it Hasbro's plan to make one figure in each wave in 5" scale vs the others?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread

I've talked to a couple of buddies about it...I am an engineer and all of the momentum crap is dumb, no doubt but I didn't have a problem suspending belief and 99% of the public has no idea about any of the actual physics behind the scenes happening.  And I get the whole different orbits of the ISS and Space Shuttles and Hubble, but again this is science fiction not science fact.

All that said, I sat there almost the entire time with my sphincter clenched...it was so intense and the sense of dread and her panic to eventual calming through the whole situation was amazing. 

The cinematography which I haven't said yet is great beyond words.  Again all of that stuff reminded me of the old IMAX NASA movies...it truly brings you into what it would be like to be an astronaut

We are 18 years past the debut of POTF2...POTF2 started 18 years past the debut of SW. Those first POTF2 figures are now as old as vintage stuff in 1995

Being a child of the 80's I think I'm not alone in saying I wanted to be an astronaut when I was young.  Gravity brought all of that back and more...all of the reviews are spot on, it is absolutely fantastic.  The effects and scenes are breathtaking and also brought me back to watching NASA IMAX films of yore.  I'm giving it a solid 10 out of 10 (10 being the highest).

I really can't seem them going nuts on imperial officers unless it is a multipack style...Ozzle, Piett, Jerjerrod, Scheckil, Jir, Lennox etc etc

Yeah he more or less is done in my book...nobody asks for E-3PO anymore

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5

I'll be surprised if both make the cut because I don't recall hands ever being used as switchout pieces unless they were sculpted to include a weapon of some sort.

Ponda Baba had switch out hands

I hope to all things holy that the factory can recreate the eyes of Yoda per the sample shown.  Part of the problem with most of the PT and recent other Yoda figures is the eyes...they are small dots.  To me almost all of the character that the OT puppet portrayed was through the Einsteinian eyes







This was something they used to NAIL back in the POTF2 days...again here's to hoping

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Anyone see the fancy dancy on stream rendering video?  It has to be the only way they think they can still release this movie in 2015
