Pics are cool, but they need to go.

Dutch Cattle, you're a dumbass. Do you think you're cool by releasing the pics everywhere and possibly getting people fired?

Dude, ya cant call him a dumbass. He didn't do anything to you. Do you know how many spoilers are out there? If they fired a person for every bit of spoiler released, they would be short alot of good employees. Spoilers keep the hype going.

If you see somthing really cool, Im sure it makes you want to see the movie that much more.

Hello All. I am proud to be the one that sent the spoiler pictures to Jedi Defender. Don't kill me.

Well, the JD boss has taken them down now.  Can't elaborate on things anymore than that at this point.  Some people loved seeing them, while others were quite pissed off that they went up here...

First spoiler pix I ever allowed myself to take a peek at.  Good stuff!   8)

Famine...

A bunch of us were on the RS Chatroom...We all swore not to Share the pictures about to be revealed to us with anyone. Period. Then, after promising not to, Dutch Cattle goes off and gives the pictures to his cousin, and I guess now JD. Then his cousin, The JAm, posts a thread about them at RS...luckily that one got shot down quick. The JAm was very understanding about the situation.

It seems that Dutch Cattle, though, is very happy that that he ruined it all

I just couldn't resist peeking this afternoon when I saw the post at work.  I was so floored by what I saw, I couldn't believe it was real.  So, I figured I'd sneak in here now and see what everyone thought.  Wow, I didn't know it turned in to such an ordeal!!

I'm glad I looked though now I have to wait another 15 months for more!!

Geez, lots of drama over these. After I saw the pics came down, I strolled over to TFN to see what was being said there and saw most of the discussion about the validity of the Ani shot. Regardless of who should or shouldn't have shared them or going into endless IP protection discussions, its appropriate to take them down and the reason doesn't really need to be flogged out here, IMHO. It was fun while they were there.

Anyway, I honestly can say they've wet my appetite for the film. The image, 100%, 75%, or 50% authentic really stuck with me. If a leaked image can do that, it only bodes well for the finished product. I can't recall much from the last 2 films that had the same impact.

Spoilers are veiwed by choice, at least here. You cant say he ruined it unless you looked.

I would guess Anakin is going to be CGI at this point

I guess Hayden is breathing a sigh of relief.
Indubitably  :P

I don't think Jefiknight was talking about looking at the pictures.  He was talking about Dutch Cattle being in a chat, promosing not to share them with anyone, but then giving them all over to people.  This has cause alot of trouble for a person at RS who will remain nameless for his sake.  Hopefully this person will not have too much of a problem with LFL and other people involved with star wars.

I'm new, like you Deak, but why does it have to be about acceptence?

I mean... why can't this person be doing it because they're a fan and likes to share things? You sit there and say that they show off or try to gain acceptence... but does this person really need it? I know of the person in question and I know that because I frequent the boards as an observer and my friends post. But reading this and knowing the situation, I think it's unfair to judge them. Apparently this person does what he does at RS because they enjoy sharing what they do. This person does a fantastic job at what they do and I for one look forward to when they post it... as do many others.

They seemed to shared out of the goodness of their heart and it backfired. But is that the whole story? Probably not because that person made a huge mistake and probably realizes it was. But the damage is done and they have to live with themselves. Thankfully, this person is not in as much trouble as they thought and I was told by my friend that Lucasfilm Ltd. has it under control. Mistakes happen and we mistake someone's kind heart and willingness to share with looking for attention. If anyone was looking for attention, it was the person who decided it would be funny to post the persons picture in here last night, I can only guess Chris and the MODS thought that was just wrong and rightfully so.

You all got to see something amazing and you all are going out of your way to bash someone because they wanted to share.

Hey- new here and only saw the crispy Anakin pic, but I think this was leaked to let Lucasfilm guage fan reaction to variations of the crispy critter look.

One's things for sure, the reaction to these has been 100% positive and has kicked up the buzz for EpIII even more.  I can't wait to see some of this stuff on the big screen!

Yeah there did.  Since the pictures were posted I have seen a larger amount of people registering here.  I'm not sure if its was for the pictures or for other issues in the online communtiy (ie RS problems, TFN problems, R2 News closing).  Hopefully, for whatever reasons, JD can keep up the good community feel that we have here with the incoming people.
