My wife and I walked because it was so far removed from the trailer used to promote the film. The movie was fair in my book - not great, almost poor - but she was disgusted by the plot and felt misled. So we fled.
I was poking around inside the POTF2 AT-AT, taking the batteries out for long-term storage. Anyway, I couldn't find a way to take the stupid electronic box out. Is it possible? I'm just curious, since they stopped working on one of my AT-ATs, even after I put fresh batteries in.
^ A week or so ago I slept through Casablanca in my Intro to Film class. Most of the films we've seen so far are interesting to one degree or another, but I've never seen Casablanca and it just doesn't appeal.
I don't have to worry about it being on a test because everything in the course is take-home essays; if need be I could rent the DVD and watch it.
As far as the sappy ending, I'm glad the Speilberg sticks to his guns. It seems that people these days want down endings, but he doesn't care, and does it his way.
I still don't understand why these are exclusives. Ok, I get that Hasbro/TRU can crank the price, knowing we'll buy these, but they also know that any clone, whatever the color, is like money in the bank. Would you want 50,000 of them out there, or 100,000? More? These colors would sell forever as part of any future assortment.
Hmmm..if this is a Tarhet exclusive, it could get pricey. Let's see, they charge 12 for one clone, so five clones should be 60.00!
Episode 3 is very top 10 worthy.. However, JP beaten by Titanic? LOTR? That's what I don't get.
Because of this thread, I randomly went onto ebay yesterday just to poke around. I don't have any carded vintage and, but plan to start when I have better cash flow. Anyway, sorry to not have the link, but I found a 12 back stormtrooper with a BIN for $50. It was in decent shape with rough edges, but in a case they would have flatted out. I seriously must have missed it by 30 seconds because it was just listed and already bought.
Turns out, a guy was getting rid of some of his carded stuff and was listing a new one every 15 - 20 minutes. I kept refreshing, but I couldn't get any, as soon as they got listeded, someone was able to buy it before I could click on it. It was like trying to win tickets on a radio station. Among what he listed was a 12 back Leia in excellent shape for $110 BIN, Lobot, an At-At driver and Teebo for $50 BIN each and an Ugnaught in excellent shape for $30 BIN. Some day, I will get good deals like this.
Eeeeeeeeeeeek! I just went looking in completed auctions. The Ugnaught went for $29. Stormtrooper for $49. Jawa for $30. by the same bidder. The Leia, Dengar, Chirpa, AT-AT Driver and Lobot auctions were ended by the seller. "The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale".
I would not be surprised if the bidder contacted the seller and made a deal for them all.
