I'm glad this is streaming on HBO Max...The Wachowskis owe me money for seeing Revolutions in the theater.

Thanks for the reply Dave.  I've been looking also and there are one-off editions that could score more than face value as they are limited run hard covers, but like you said, most are face value or less depending on the series.

I may post them on the Classifieds first to see if there is any interest before trying eBay, but I ultimately think these will end up at the used book store in the end.

Admins, please feel free to move this to the appropriate thread, I wasn't sure where I should post it.

The wife is forcing a renovation of the basement and I had to choose between Kubricks, Lego and my book collection.  Unfortunately the book collection lost.  Do any of you know what the appetite is for pre-Disney era books on the secondary market (i.e., not marked as "Legends")?  Trying to determine if it makes more sense to try and sell these or just donate to a local book store in my area.  Thanks in advance for any advice given.

I had to delete the app from my TV, reboot the TV, reload the app and then it worked.  It had to be my TV that was the issue because I could watch it fine on my phone.  Good to know in case it happens again.

Tried to watch WandaVision today and about 5 minutes into the second episode, the sound cut out.  Have tried again multiple times to restart the episode but no luck.  Even tried watching the first episode again and that one doesn't have sound now.

Anyone else having issues with their Disney+?

Watched WW84 and thought it was just okay.  At 2.5 hours long, there were a lot of filler sequences (fighting/other) that could have been cut down significantly without taking anything away from the story.  But the story wasn't that good to begin with, so maybe that's why the fillers were as long as they were.  Sure am glad I didn't spend the $100+ I would have to see it in the theater with the family, that's for sure.

They wanted to go find that scene in AOTC where Kenobi and Jango were battling and the sonic bombs were dropped.

My sons said the exact same thing!  They didn't get the cannon fire during the chase so they wanted to hear that again too.

This season has been great, really love what they are doing with the story and characters.

I have a 15 and 16 year old that have been absolutely losing it over the fact that Boba Fett and Slave 1 are back.  They were seriously jumping off the couch after the extraction hoping they were going to get to hear Slave 1 fire at the TIE Fighters or drop a sonic charge.  The actually cheered out loud when the charge went off.  The pure joy of kids...

With only about 3 weeks left in the season, the AL Central is going to be a fun race to watch.  As of today, I think this will come down to the last series of the regular season to determine the playoff spots.

My sons and I were really blown away by the last two episodes.  The richness of the animation and the action sequences were fantastic.  For my 16yo to repeatedly say 'That is siiiick', when he's normally not impressed with anything, I thought was a great testament to just how well done this final arc is.  It only makes me wonder why they waited until the end to roll out this animation, unless it just wasn't available to them before now, or they didn't have the budget they have now to spend on it...  Either way, what a fantastic way to end the series.

Did I miss where Rey built her own lightsaber?  Was it in a book or cartoon or something else?  I don't remember that ever being discussed/shown, so when she ignites it at the end it surprised the hell out of me.  If it is the first time it's revealed, it seems like it a weird time to do it...

Recently saw both Ford vs. Ferrari and Knives Out.  Thought both were great.  Both Damon and Bale were fantastic in their roles.  I found it interesting that they did not mention Rian Johnson at all in any of the advertisements for Knives Out ahead of its release.  Was happy to see him rebound from TLJ with a strong film.

Dang, that's a great score.  Still need the Imperial Officer and the AT-ST Driver to complete the collection.

I've been talking about and researching for a couple of years but finally pulled the trigger on a 2019 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited.

This thing is sweet!

Nice!  Jeeps are the official vehicle of the city I live in.

Just ordered my UCS Star Destroyer and already have the shipping notice!  Now to devise a way for my wife not to be here when it arrives...
