Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

Mads Mikkelson's character didn't want to build the Death Star, but went along with it - so he built the thermal exhaust ports into the death star on purpose, hence explaining why it's so simple to destroy it.

Maybe he was good buddies with Darth Doofenshmirtz and added in a self destruct to his Planet-blowing-up-inator.

I'm just excited we've got a bunch of new characters, almost none of which is known to survive (granted we don't know if they die either).  I'm looking forward to the freedom the story will have to kill significant characters in the movie and surprise us.

I hear Darth Vader survives.  :P

Are you sure?  It could be anyone in that suit!  ;)

I got my loot on Saturday.  Nice looking bunch.  Thanks, Paul.

Count me in!

How much is this set?  I might be in for a set.

It's funny to hear how many people (myself included) have gotten the "It's a recall" line.

What's funny is that the are claimed to be recalled and yet are back on the pegs the next time you are there.  I guess 'recalled' means back to the pegs to them.

Planning to head out to some Targets soon. Fingers crossed for that %^&*( speeder.

I don't think you need to be concerned about the speeder.  A bunch of those were left from MM at our TRU.  I suspect it's going to be an easy find.

Chewie and I hit a TRU near us and they had pretty much everything wave 1.  The 6" Death Troopers and Tank Drivers were gone right away.  Sabine was next.  But product was plentiful.  Got the Tee and Poster as well.

One guy came in about 30 minutes later and complained that Walmart had nothing out.  I think he as just looking for the exclusives since he didn't really look at any of the figures.

I don't hate the SE's I guess.  I don't like a lot.  I'd rather have that Jabba DB94 scene than not have it though, for some reason.  I enjoy it.  And hey...  ASP-7 revolutionized Star Wars.  :D

I agree.  The DB94 Jabba scene was supposed to be there to begin with, but the budget/technology wasn't there to do the SFX right so kudos to Lucas for having the heart to cutting the scene and adding more to Greedo's (I believe that was the case, could be wrong) dialogue to show how dire the situation with Han was.  But George had the tech and budget in the 90s to do Jabba right, so I see no problem with adding him in the SE then.  It's just that he should have went back and edited some of Greedo's dialogue so it didn't seem repetitious with the "dumping cargo at the sign of Imperials" line that they both shared.  But, this is chat for the SE threads  ;)

The show is fun though.  The poor Ughnaught was bottle-rocketed by the AT-DP.  Still don't care much for the main protagonists, but maybe with his Sith training, Ezra will somewhat mature and become likeable.

Fun fact, at least I think this is the case, all the SE X-Wings are "Red 5" markings because I guess they didn't wanna make more than one because $.  So never take everything on screen super serious either.  :)

You mean. don't take everything on the SE super seriously... you know, Jedi Rocks, or Han stepping on Jabba come to mind (that scene is bad- not because of the SFX, but because the dialogue is a rehash of what Greedo tells Han (which I'm sure the Greedo/Han dialogue might save been changed some when he released making a slug Jabba wouldn't work in the mid-70s)).

Perhaps in ANH, when C-3PO says, "Thank the Maker!" he didn't mean Anakin (though Threepio didn't know Anakin created him), he was referring to the Maker

Only one YW group made the trench run Steve

Thanks for the correction.  I hope this doesn't result in losing my SW fan license. ;)

So all that trouble for 5 Y-wings? Was that the exact # actually shown in ANH or something?

There were at least 7.  There were two bombing runs on the Death Star comprised of three Y-Wings each (which were destroyed), and there is one Y-Wing (at least) in the scene showing the Rebels getting away from the Death Star as it is blowing up.  So they must find more somewhere since they have them in Jedi, too.

Maybe Josh Gad will sing his popular hit song, "Do You Want to Build Star Wars 3.75" Super Articulated Figures" at Hasbro?
