The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers
« Last post by Brian on April 17, 2015, 08:52 PM »
Didn't get a chance to come post until today, but I've probably watched this a dozen times or more already.  So excited.  I'll admit that I was excited each time a new trailer for one of the prequels came out as well, but this feels different.  It is likely the direct connection to the OT-era and characters (ok, definitely), but I'm excited for this new group they are setting up as well.  I love how things are familiar, yet updated, with the vehicles, troopers, etc.  As nerdy as it sounds, I got goosebumps and nearly teared up with Han's "Chewie, we're home" line.  Just can't wait.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

I'm in the same boat as many of you.  It may be because it comes on the heels of the great Force Awakens trailer, but it just seemed underwhelming overall.  I want to be excited for this movie, and if I'm being honest I know I'll be there opening weekend, but I too don't care for the "hey, we're the darkest dark that ever darked a dark" vibe they are going for with the DC movie slate.  I understand being serious, or "grounded" as they always like to say, but I think you can do it with a nice balance of both humor and just hopefulness alongside (like Marvel).  We want to still be able to have fun at the movies too, especially "superhero" movies.

Ok - I just watched it again - they posted a hi-res version on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?t=21&v=IwfUnkBfdZ4

And to answer your question Jeff - no, the lack of clarity/quality of the original version did NOTHING to hurt people's impression of the movie, the trailer itself does a good enough job at it.

Like Qui-Gon Jim said, we get it DC, your universe is "dark" and "brooding" - but guess what, I also want to have a little bit of "fun" when I go see my superhero movies, so you're going to have to do a bit more than just trying to recapture the lightning in the bottle that was The Dark Knight.

And seriously - "Tell me, do you bleed?.... YOU WILL" - just HORRIBLE, is Superman supposed to be scared by that?

Oh and for anyone who was holding out hope that man-child Eisenberg was going to be decent in this film, watch the video again, he's the girly-man voice saying weakly "Devils don't come from Hell beneath us, (whisper) no, they come from the sky" - want some cheese with that wine Lex?

Unless I see something radically different in the trailers we get closer to the movie's release, this is an easy pass for me.

I am going to be at the final Star Wars Weekends weekend - so I will try to pick up as many as I can and just have WDW ship 'em home for me...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Disney Exclusive Build-A-Droid Factory

Really?  These R6 and R9 droids that are part of the theme park program are tied in to Rebel pilots from TFA?  WTF?!?!

Well - the R6 dome does look A LOT like one of the domes they showed during the Abrams/Kennedy panel when they brought out the droid builders - so if that's the case, that makes them all the more cooler!

Where did you see this info posted Nick?

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015

I would think Palpatine, personally.  The first Walgreens exclusive was a variation on a previously released figure:  Boba Fett.  Considering that Palpatine is on the way in the 6" basic figure line I can kind of understand an exclusive Force Lightning version for Walgreens.  Especially in light of the fact that the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted an image of lightning when someone asked him a direct question about the 2015 exclusive.

Saw that and it's understandable that they can't comment on much.  I was surprised to hear there's more Rebels figures coming and also in 6" form.

As for the hint on the Walgreens exclusive 6" figure.  Some are saying The Emperor with lightning effects, but the Hasbro guy hinted Force Choke.. Perhaps it's Throne Room Battle Vader since he's pretty much the only person that does it.

I'm willing to pick up parts but you have to specify exactly which parts you want.
