The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Who was the redhaired dude from Harry Pothead?  Is that the redheaded kid from those movies, or no?  I never watched any of them.
Well, you're probably thinking of Rupert Grint, the red-haired Ron Weasley.  This guy played Ron's oldest brother... Weasleys all have red hair.

That pic has definite lens-flare.

It's too bad those 'soda-pop/school lunch episodes of The Clone Wars are considered canon.  :P

Also, a lot of people say the Thrawn Trilogy would be cool if made into movies.  I was thinking of this (it's been a while since I've read it so I could be mistaken) and there's a plotline that would be a problem... when Han finds that Stormtroopers are clones (or clones are still being made).  Why would this be a shock since you'd think everyone in the Republic/Empire would have known that since the clone wars happened?

Tommy Lee Jones has been recast in that role. Announcement forthcoming.

That would make sense:  the names are kind of similar.

My guess must be that certain teams' arena must be busy with concerts.

I think it has more to do with the NBA play-offs myself.  Glad to see the Hawks get at least one more day rest though...

That's probably it... I don't watch NBA so I wouldn't have even thought about their playoffs.

Kind of confusing the schedule of the playoffs.  Rangers/Flyers played game 5 yesterday, while Blackhawks/Blues played their sixth.  I know others had the same thing where they were a couple games ahead of another bracket.  My guess must be that certain teams' arena must be busy with concerts.

Of course, Montreal has been sitting idle for awhile.  Wonder if that'll mess with their playing.

Interesting that some fans are up in arms about this and claiming Disney raped my childhood.

Not sure what's "interesting" about it. I know you hate EU so you don't care, but some of us do care. So it shouldn't be a surprise. I know we've discussed this before and I won't make a production about it again. I am just glad they are not just pretending the books/games/comics/etc didn't happen by using their "Legends" title.

Nick, using 'hate' is a strong word and putting words in my mouth, which I don't appreciate.  My opinions on EU is that it is non-canon.  I read some, liked some, didn't care for most, so I quite reading it.  It's an opinion and it's different than yours.  It doesn't mean that my feelings on EU should take away from your enjoyment.  That being said...

my point is that there are a lot of EU fans out there basically using "Disney raped my childhood" like some claimed "Lucas raped my childhood 15-20 years ago.  It's interesting the parallel there.

Pretty even match-ups going on... except for the Canadiens sweeping Tampa.

What did you think of the electronics?

Chewie sounds like Pluto, Luke like Mickey, Stormie like Goofy, and Han like Donald.  :P

Man, just 2 episodes left in the season... that's rough.  I'm enjoying it thoroughly.  I keep forgetting that the characters don't know that Fury's still alive... Will be interesting to see what Maria Hill's purpose is next week

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1

The Amazon page I have bookmarked currently shows $34.99 with free shipping.
Looks like these are sold out then, for a similar price with shipping included... It's weird because the store that was selling them had a specific price for shipping on items ($7.99 for under a pound, which the Stormtrooper is under that weight) and they almost doubled the shipping on the Stormie most likely due to the popularity of the figure.

Wish HTS and TRU.com would get their acts together though.

Yeah, I managed to score mine through TRU.com, found one in a TRU (with sloppy paint apps of colors that don't belong on the Stormtrooper) and left it.  I really wish the QC was better on these Hasbro-deemed 'collector focus figures'.  Otherwise, they're just eyesores.

As of 9:43 CST, amazon has the 6" Stormtrooper for $21.59.

EDIT: Nevermind.  I didn't see they're charging $13+ for shipping.

Wow, sounds like a lot of crap paint jobs on this guy.  I would think paint would be improving on these by now, especially given the collector nature of them.

You would think, right?  And how does yellow and red paint get on a white and black stormtrooper?

Found a fresh case of Wave 1 2014 at my local TRU. Had the Stormtrooper in my hands excited that the helmet was in better shape than the one I ordered online. Looked further down and it appears that this trooper had a little accident at the company picnic. On his right thigh was a mix of red and yellow splotch.... too much ketchup and mustard on the hot dog apparently. I put him back and left him. I didn't want to deal with cleaning up the guy.
