Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

They were next to the Walker Dead Pop Vinyl figures I think, generally in the same area where you would see the GoT figs or their SW 6" stuff.

They have 6" figures?!  :o  I was at B&N over the weekend and saw the GoT figures (still on the fence about them)... didn't think to look for SW 6" figures.

Where'd you find them there at B&N?  A stand-alone display, in with sci-fi?  Just curious.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU

"Now that Disney has decided Star Wars is a big mainstream business again, the company has killed off the EU in favor of something grander and probably blander."

This is the where the author loses legitimacy.  This is just his opinion and no one yet knows how Episode VII, the one-offs, or Disney's other media is going to be.  I mean, this sounds like a bitter fanboy right here.

I think it was a opinion piece. Of course she couldn't have been writing a factual piece on what Disney is doing. No one knows what they are doing. But she is in the same Nerd boy status as I. "Opinion" doesn't cancel out legitimacy. It's opinion. And I agree with her that it's a possibility. So it could be legitimate. I believe she says probably. Not that she is sure. I liked the article so I mentioned it.

Didn't post it to say "See I told you I was right!"

I love being a bitter fan boy. Thanks for calling me out

I wasn't calling you out... just several of the things I've seen posted elsewhere.  But to me, it sounds like the author is saying they are getting rid of EU for something crappier, which isn't fair.  Now, come Episode VII and it isn't great, then I think it's a legitimate gripe; but to complain about something before it happens, that's where I mean it sounds like the bitter fanboy rant.  So basically she is pre-judging the new trilogy because the EU was declared "Legacy" and not canon by Disney.

But, again, Nick, just because Disney says it isn't so, doesn't mean that you can't think it's so in your SW world.  Trust me, there are things tinkered with in the Original Trilogy Special Editions that aren't canon to me (Greedo shoots first, etc).  I remember complaining about that and having people counter it by saying, "It's Lucas' movies, he can do what he wants."  I guess Disney now has those rights to make those changes, but it doesn't mean they own the memory of the Star Wars I love... I hope that's the way you feel about it as well.

Sometimes this EU debate is worse than some of the political ones in the Sarlacc Pit.  ;D

My wife doesn't care for "24" (mainly due to the torture stuff), but when she saw Yvonne Strahovski, she said she wondered if that was supposed to be Kim Bauer.

24: Season 9: Attack of the Drones

I wonder if Jack might die in this season and Kate (min-Jack) might take over his role.

Four years later:  anyone watching this?  Kind of cool to see Catelyn Stark in it.

Spoiler:  I was kinda surprised they actually went through with the Gwen Stacey part.

I saw a trailer with Gwen's graduation speech... any speech like that usually means that character will die.

Under an overpass is an ideal place to hide during a tornado.  Normally lying flat near the side.

Actually, no, it's not according to a National Weather Service.  An overpass creates a wind tunnel effect.  There's more here since I was curious: http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ddc/?n=over

And had any of those people seen a tornado, been near one, even a video and known what to do out in the country when there is no shelter?  I bet it isn't to hide under an overpass.  I bet all those Kansas folk would know what to do.

As for the dog, he would have been long gone before the rest of the Kents... well, the Earthling ones anyway.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I guess Peter Mayhew gets to grunt and growl, so why not have Kenny whistle?  ;) 

I see they have Carrie Fisher as Leia Solo (also on imdb).  I would think she'd keep Organa since she's the strong heroine and last of the royal family of Alderaan.
