The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

Han... Solo. 

Cool trailer, but apparently being a Hero of the Rebellion doesn't equate to earning much money.  Han is still wearing the same outfit 30 years later.  ;)  The Force.  It surrounds us, binds the fibers of the vest.  One size fits all. Never buy another.

As for Han's "We're home."  If rumors are correct it's not going to be a happy homecoming.

$20 price point probably steers away a lot of interest as well.

They're still at $20 at B&N and online stores.  Targets have them at $9.99 now.  Walgreens are $16 or $17, I believe.

I think the figures are cool, but I think the market was over-saturated by Wave 1, and the way it was done was poor, too.  B&N was the only Brick and Mortar retailer that a person could buy the figures for months.  The figures weren't HTF, either.  Just before wave 2 is supposed to hit Walgreens got Wave 1 (along with an exclusive Tyrion) so the only figure of interest to most fans was likely Tyrion.  Then Target got into the game with wave 1 (along with exclusive SDCC Tyrion) so there was only one figure to interest fans there and the rest of the wave 1 was left to peg warm. 

Wave 2, I feel, had two bad character choices.  Another Danerys, while cool, could have been better suited for later wave.  I feel it's too soon to have another Dany in a new outfit when there are other characters out there to explore.  Khal Drogo (again, cool) might have been better off for a later wave.  They could characters that are more important like Cersei or Joffrey, Tywin, Hodor and Bran, Bronn... I'm just not sure how deep they can go into the characters at a $20 price point (I guess if people keep buying, they'll do it).

The only thing you need to know, Steve, is Fraser has amazing hair.

Had to check that out.  ;D

I'll have to check that out.

As for the Wild last year.  I wouldn't know the stats.  I'm sure the team in '04 is different than it was when I saw them.  I enjoyed watching them but was frustrated by horrible passing. 

I'm in NYC for a visit and had looked at going to the Rangers game vs Ottawa.  Glad I saved the money. Fans are happy with the loss since it took out some good teams.

Interesting note that Agents of Shield has not yet been renewed.

Should I pull out the stupid "American's don't know hockey" argument now and be equally condescending?  :-*  Cuz no way could American's, especially those based in St. Louis possibly be biased in a game they lost that they thought was going to be a cake walk.

No, you can't.  You should know we Americans invented the sport and everything in the world.  ;) ;D

But, to be honest, I'm relatively new to being a hockey fan.  I lived in MN for years, watched the Wild and wasn't very impressed.  Go to NY and see the Rangers play and it felt like a pro team (than the collegiate feel the Wild had at the time).  So, I'm still learning rules.

I sure hope Kerry Fraser didn't ref the last Cup Finals.  Man, there were some bad calls (or no-calls) that shifted momentum in a couple games that might have changed the results.  Goalie interference is one penalty that seems rarely consistent in games I've watched.

Anyway, you guys can educate me, and I appreciate it.

Traveling in the NBA: do they even call that anymore?  I gave up watching basketball years ago when it became an individual sport with 4 other guys on the court.

Yeah and it's a Canadian source.  Just like StL reporters say it's BS.  So, with that logic of not playing the puck then the defender that raises the stick during offensive play is also guilty.

But hey, I'm a Rangers fan.  Great year so far.

How about that "Slashing" call that robbed the Blues a goal.  Seriously?  Guy just can't hold onto his stick.

I guess one of those was bound to happen, but "Noooo!"

Is anyone else really tired of buying and rebuying these movies?

Now, they want to milk me for another $90 for digital copies?   I don't think I can do it.  :-\

I agree.  And you can also replace movies with certain figures (and update or whatever) and it's still the same.

I understand why they don't, but wouldn't it have been awesome for them to include Han AND Luke's heads in this one?  You know they are not going to make a new "little short to be a stormtrooper" mold just for Luke.

But they have.

Plus, Coulson basically planted the seed that took out several Hydra heads a few episodes ago  (after Whitehall's death).

Perhaps the show is on "Unlimited Ammo" mode?

Maybe the line posted for the 4" figures is TFA with the 5 PoA ones keeping the same (or would that be listed there)? 

There's nothing about the deluxe 6" line either, so I'm thinking it just wasn't listed and is keeping the same DPCI.
