I just watched The Last Crusade yesterday.  That exact quote went through my mind when I was watching the story on the news!  :D

I was just watching coverage of this.  From what I can gather, it looks like he had engine trouble right after take-off, was trying to return to the runway and just didn't make it back.  Not surprising if it happened at take-off, because you are going to have very limited altitude and airspeed to work with.  Luckily, the golf course was right there.

When I got my PPL, most of the training was covering various types of engine or flight problems.  Losing the engine at take-off is arguably the most dangerous for that type of aircraft because without the engine, it essentially becomes a glider and ny maneuver you do will cost you altitude.

There are more people who know.  Bail Organa has to know...hell Uncle Owen knows!  I'm sure R2-D2 knows but won't tell and C-3PO used to know.

I'm willing to bet that Organa didn't tell too many people, but did tell Ahsoka.

I was assuming it'll be an exclusive of sorts?  Maybe not.

The way distribution is, perhaps it will feel like a limited edition exclusive.

Call me a canonist or a purist or close minded or whatever it was a dumb idea to begin with.

Cannonist!  >:(

I like the idea of Vader being the one to take out Ahsoka...  but there's probably too much money in Ahsoka staying alive for her to be taken out like that. 

If we're guessing her fate, I'll guess she was on Alderaan with Bail when it exploded...  that's the real reason that Obi-Wan was able to feel it's destruction from so far away. :P

Although the Ahsoka dying on Alderaan is a good one, I doubt that's the reason Obi-Wan could feel it.  Millions of voices crying out in terror and being suddenly silenced would create a great disturbance in the Force.

I hope that Vader runs into Ahsoka, and calls her snips before he kills her.

I know a lot of you are excited to see her in the new series, but the Clone Wars series with her in it was pretty terrible most of the time and I was hoping they would move away from it....far away.

Overall I like this series, and this episode was great.  The best part about it is my four-year old likes it and it will get him excited for Episode VII.

The past two episodes actually frightened my four-year old a bit.  But his favorite movie is ESB...go figure.    :D

I disagree, I think Fulcrum is Bail Organa.

Looks like all the roads are made up.  They'd likely take Route 1 into Alexandria.  Route 611 runs roughly parallel to it.  And I don't think you'd see the DC skyline while approaching Alexandria, as it's about 5 miles as the crow flies between cities.

I figured they were on 495.

Good episode, I guess anyone who had to deal with the Termites and the Governor would have some trust issues.

Yeah.  I didn't like how that idea panned out.

After seeing that mess, I don't think we're missing out on that.

Yeah, at the time I thought $150 was too much and I hoped to find one on clearance eventually, and that never happened.  In the years that followed I didn't exactly have a ton of space for one anyway, so I've held off.   It's on my list though, but I'd like to not spend damn near $300 for one all the same.

I'm actually in a similar boat with the AT-TE.

Quite frankly, if they want to sell a $250 to $300 toy, one of the best things they could do would be to make the radar dish swappable and let you pick which version you want to display / play with.  At that price point, it would be a small gesture that would probably increase sales.  I'm not terribly interested in a E7 version, but am still loosely in the market for an OT one but have never been able to justify the cost.

You never picked one up when they were first released?  I'm kind of shocked by that.

The buz from the concept art must've really got things in gear!

Which would make sense, with it having essentially a little "runabout" shuttle that can dock to it...  The Falcon doesn't have the bulk for something like that.

Go double check your BMF Falcon, right behind the sensor dish!   ;D

I don't think The Ghost will never happen, but I just don't see it this year, personally.  I think the SSG Q&A gives it some hope though, and if the Falcon is the sort of centric hero ship of the new trilogy, like I said before, it's tooled so you could re-release that and maybe a Ghost with it?  I think it's doable.  I think The Phantom was made to clearly dock to a Ghost too, so I think Hasbro wants to do it.  When it comes to big stuff though, and this goes back to the line's beginning, they've always had to fudge ways to do it...  The media support helps though.

With the way the Phantom was designed I would think they at least have a mock-up of the Ghost at this point.
