The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2015
« on: July 10, 2015, 12:24 PM »
I actually just saw some comments elsewhere where people are now angry they've just realized that it's 1:30 PST. Sigh. Not even kidding.

Really?  I guess people don't have enough real-world problems to deal with.

I don't have twitter, but would like to ask again when they plan to release 6" Han in Carbonite in regular packaging.  I'm bummed I can't get this awesome piece, or Salacious Crumb for that matter.  Make the packaging different enough for those that can't make it to the cons or don't luck out when they are on HTS.  They are finally doing it for their shared exclusives with TRU.  Just seems like a win-win since they already have the molds done.

I get what your saying about it from a story standpoint, but I'd find it hard to believe that Tatooine would be devoid of any news after the fall of the Republic.  I would think the propaganda machine would be working overtime for any citizen to report on any Jedi that have fled and gone underground... and I would think that an image of the Emperor's Right Hand man would be menacing enough to strike fear into the heart of anyone and there'd be rumors going around of a man in black with his helmet and breathing that goes by the name Vader making it to all parts of the galaxy.

I guess that's why when Vader says that he sense a presence he hasn't felt since... I always took it to mean Ben and that their last encounter was on Mustafar.... (the whole master and apprentice conversation during their duel) otherwise, if Vader and Kenobi face off again, then somehow Ben 'wins' again and escapes, it'll make Vader look poorly as a Sith. 

But of course, Vader would know that Ben is still alive, so I would think he'd be looking for him for revenge... so... I don't know.  It's tough since the writers are already painted in a corner with pre-existing storylines (like the prequels)... if they go this route.

Yep, I'm happy to just wait it out and pick one up cheap after the furor dies down. None of their exclusives have been that hard to get after the fact if one is patient.

I still haven't gotten that Fett/Carbonite set.  Couldn't get it on HTS when it went up and wasn't going to feed the scalpers by paying an outrageous price for it on ebay. 

In that temple scene, Palpatine uses "Lord Vader" to address Anakin, doesn't he?

Not necessarily that .  Obi-wan could have learned information about Vader from the holonet or information from smugglers or Asohka.  Anakin was already known as Vader on Mustafar.

That's crazy.  And I feel for the guy who was going to get one for $5 over price just to be rid of the headache, only to have lost an extra $100 in the process.  That trooper was definitely not worth it... and getting punched.  Sad.

I've always kind of imagined he just lived out his days in the desert, studying Jedi stuff and watching over Luke.  I just assumed he never really did much because why would he?

Exactly.  I doubt he'd leave Tatooine to fight an Inquisitor.  And if he's fighting Inquisitors on Tatooine, that would ring bells that Tatooine is a hot spot for Jedi activity.

Han being in the Imperial Academy is something that has been fodder for the EU but never made it into the films.  I'm not sure if the life debt got mentioned in the OT, but it was certainly implied.  But the Lando story about the Falcon is canon from TESB.

1. No, I believe Han being in the Academy was from the early books before EU really heated up in the 90s.  Still, it's probably considered Legacy at this point.
2. The life debt was also an EU thing. 

But as I said, I don't care what they do as long as it's a good story.

I forgot to mention about Solo's Wife that was recently revealed in the comics.  I'm not reading the comics, so it would be interesting if that would be included in the films and how that plays with Han's relationship with Leia.  But I would prefer not to have a love triangle or really a love interest in the movies.  Let it be an adventure film.

So, with the announcement that young Han is #2, I wonder what the status of the Fett movie is?

There are also a couple of things that I'd really like to see in this project, but I also don't want to have Chris Miller and Phil Lord painted into a corner.
-How Han Solo earns the life debt from Chewbacca
-Han winning the Millenium Falcon from Lando in the Sabacc game

Wasn't Han supposedly in the Imperial Academy (and that's where he rescues Chewie)?  I thought I read that somewhere a long time ago... I could be wrong.  Han as a disgruntled Imperial would be interesting, but I'm up for a good story over anything else.

I'm sure we'll see Jabba or hear him referenced.  Bounty Hunters... it'd be nice to see Greedo, the Executor Six (as long as Fett isn't overused), but it'd be cool to see Cad Bane or Embo in there.  Let's throw in some Tonnika Sisters (or however Disney wants to call them) so we can get their figures.

Too bad you weren't in the row behind him so you could make large obnoxious comments throughout the movie...

Sabine Wren is an interesting choice for fans.  I would have thought that Kanan, Ezra or the Inquisitor would be more obvious choices for REBELS characters. 

Someone posted on a JTA thread regarding Sabine,
I imagine the PR team freaked out when they saw a) no females in the finals and b) no representation from the current [Disney] media (Rebels). So, to heck with that whole "Top 6" thing, we'll just make it a Top 7 and add a character that fixes both deficiencies.

I believe Jayson said something similar as well after why there was a 7th finalist added to the list. (his was the first one I saw, but couldn't find the quote).

I understand what you mean by Sabine hasn't been developed much.  I hope that changes because she seems like a pretty cool character.  Visually, the most interesting of the crew of the Ghost and I hope we get to know more about her backstory soon.  I know Kanan and Ezra are the main characters, but I find them to be boring visually. 

I just don't get that people say, "vote for x character because s/he is cooler and is least likely to get made."  Or "Don't vote for these guys because they will be made eventually."  That's a big assumption that any character is going to be made.  Hasbro could end the line at some point and I'd rather have a figure of a character that made an impact in the movies before anyone outside is made.  I'm pretty sure that all SW gamers/book fans have seen the movies, whereas not all SW movie fans have played the games or read the books.  This is where I think it's hard for some fans to support an EU figure.  It's great if an EU figure wins as that's what the poll's about, but I don't think it's one that everyone would be happy about.  If Lando or Ben won, I think people would be excited to get them.

Glad to see Sabine make the list, too.

I agree it would be a dick move if they said "No" to a bunch of votes since they didn't exclude them in their disclaimer.  If Revan is a part of the current canon EU, great!  It would be funny if, say, Thrawn (I'm assuming he's non-canonical) won.  I wonder how the suits at Disney would feel about that?  "Oh! The fans want a Star Wars figure that isn't considered Star Wars by us."

I guess I'll answer my own question by saying question, if it makes them money I doubt they'd care.
