The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« on: October 25, 2013, 10:18 AM »
What? You didn't enjoy all the zany sound effects in Wall*E ?

107
Imagine watching that original Star Wars trailer in '76 with that Alien-like sound track and having no idea what this movie was all about. The trailer tells you absolutely nothing about plot. It doesn't look like American Graffiti.

The first thing you see is a girl and some giant dog in a spaceship with space ships flying over another space ship. They are shooting at each other. Then you see a black beach ball with a needle sticking out of it. (some kind of drug reference) The girl looks scared. Shot of some black robot-looking guy. The girl tries to escape but the dog barks at her. Then a guy is shooting the walls while guys in armor try to escape. Then we see a couple of robots named 3-CPO and R2-D2 and a guy in a karate outfit. Then Alec Gensis shows up with a light stick and people duck for cover. Then two kids swing across a casm like it was a pirate movie. Big robot black guy throws another guy against a wall. Scary mummy hits guy with stick! Sword fights. R2 gets sucked up a tube. Monster grabs guy in trash. Monster with gun. R2 falls over. Some guys on alert in a military building. Star Wars words explode.

What the heck was that?

My six year old is obsessed with Yummy Mummy. I told him to never mix his monster cereals. I hear bad things can happen.

Wow! Incredible collection there guys. I've always thought the Indy stuff was really expensive. I only have a Indy figure and the Well of the Souls playset. Make sure you get all the snakes from that set.

I've decided I hate Jett Lucas. I hope he stays far away from anything related to Star Wars.

It's always good to have a reproduction of Vlix considering the high price of the real thing. It fills the spot until you hit the lottery.

More updates on the possible Star Wars overlay for Disneyland's Tomorrowland. It seems the Astro Orbitor that sits in the front of the land will be moved to the Space Mountain complex. It will sit on top of the Captain EO theater and use the old Starcade upper level as a queue. The PeopleMover tower will become a landing pad for the Falcon. The Falcon will be a walk-thru / meet and greet with Chewbacca.

The Tomorrowland Terrace will be rethemed as the Mos Eisly Cantina.  Maybe it will be enclosed? The Autopia will be torn out and replaced with the moon of Endor. Speeder bikes will leave the Innoventions building and race around that area. There will be a Ewok village with yet another meet and great / walk thru and a restaurant. I guess Endor will have a monorail system since that is staying but hidden behind trees.

All this basically means Tomorrowland is losing one ride (Autopia), gaining a new restaurant/shop and two themed meet&greets.

Envious. I don't have a vintage Rancor for some reason.

I got an email from amazon saying wave 2 will be delayed and should they keep my order. Why does Hasbro suck  so much?

The Retron 5 has a release date of December 10th for $99. They've added a few new tricks to the unit. You can now plug in a Sega Power Base converter to play Sega Master System games off the Genesis cartridge port.

So how many of you kept you badge from SDCC 2013 so you could preregister for next year? It seems it has a "secret" code on it that you will need to pre-register otherwise you CAN NOT register. Also registration will be between Nov 1st and Dec 31st but we are not going to tell you until the last minute.

Why do they play games with us? How hard is it to send an email with an attached PDF to mail back?

Why would Boba have different outfits? Wouldn't he have gotten his armor from his dad?

Yah, the Droids and Ewoks stuff is kind of weird but worth picking up. Once you have those, you have to go for the unreleased wave 2 figures from those series. Someone a while back made molds of those. I have all the Droids but I'm still looking for the unreleased wave 2 Ewoks.

I hope the show has some stories that lead into the movies.

I hope this gets good ratings since it looks pretty expensive to survive on poor ones. I would hate to be to the executive to cancel this Joss Whedon project.
