The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Reboot Episodes I, II & III?

I'm happy waiting for Adywan to do the revisited versions.

Opened this for my son yesterday and it's a decent toy, although over priced for the quality...the plastic seems very lightweight.  I think this thing should be $25.

123
Santa brought one of these for my 5 year old and after it was put together, I think it's pretty nice.  The way they put in a second seat for a gunner is pretty cool...of course I now have to get him a second TIE fighter pilot.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

I'm sure they are following the Marvel formula.  Kathleen Kennedy and the executive producers have an idea on where the story will ultimately go, and they give direction to the writers and directors on how to get there.

I'm not overly worried.  Look at what they've done with Marvel.  They spent $4 billion on Star Wars...they are not going to **** it up.

Finn being able to use a lightsaber was no big deal to me, he's probably had the same hand-to-hand training that other Stormtroopers receive, and I never bought into the idea that only a Jedi could wield a lightsaber.  I'm also wondering if Finn is somehow force sensitive...it would be a good explanation for how the First Order's conditioning never took hold of him.

I read online somewhere that the battle of Jakku broke the back of the Empire and hurt the New Republic as well.  After that, an armistice was signed and the two factions went into a sort of cold war era.  As stated in the opening crawl, the First Order arose from the remains of the Empire and the Resistance was formed to keep them in check without the entire Republic going to war.  The Republic financed the Resistance, but kept it low key...this was alluded to in General Hux's speech.

There's a lot of speculation that Rey is Luke's daughter.  I'm not convinced of this yet...you would think Leia or Han would have recognized her.  I'm hoping that she is not related at all, and she was possibly a survivor of the academy massacre...but it wouldn't surprise me if they go down the "she's a Skywalker" road.

It will be interesting to see just how broken Luke is after what happened to his students.  For him to walk away from everything speaks volumes already!  I half expect to see force ghosts of Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda muttering in the background through a portion of Episode VIII.

Where do you think Snoke came from?  I'm guessing that he was one of the inquisitors, and he was able to rise after the Emperor and Vader died.  I really hope that he's not Plagueis.  That would ruin the story for me.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3

I cracked these open and I have to say that it's so hard to believe that the main line is now 5 POA. These are just so nicely done that it makes me strongly consider dumping the 5 POA line and focus on the Black series.

Welcome back Brother!

I have to say that this wave is a big hit in my area.  I stopped off at Walmart to pick up another Kylo Ren for my Dark Side shelf and they were all gone...so were the FO Stormtroopers!

129
Looks cool!  I'll have to pick that one up.

Oh - also - so this is the first SW movie without a limb being severed or an injury along those lines, right?

And did anyone catch any 1138s?

I almost forgot...but C-3PO had his arm removed...and reattached by the end!

Be patient...they will turn up at some point.

No limbs being cut off but two pretty significant impalements!

But if we're keeping with the pattern, then I'm guess Max von Sydow is the Ben Kenobi watching Rey, and Luke is the unknowing father.

I don't think so.  His settlement seemed pretty far away from where Rey was. Hopefully we can find out more next May...but who knows if they'll recap anything about Jakku except why Rey's family hid her there.

I forgot to mention that I picked up Kylo Ren and 3 FO Stormtroopers.  :D

I saw it in IMAX 3-D and there was one shot where I thought the Star Destroyer was going to hit me in the face!  I'm seeing it in 2D tomorrow.

Do you guys thing Phasma is done or did she make it out?
