Just had the "pleasure" of seeing Jurassic World 2. Save your money, folks.

I'm also probably going to vomit with all the self congratulating that the boycotters are doing. They all showed Disney.

*palpatine_watching_opera.jpg* Ironic.

They do realize this also kills the Kenobi spinoff they've been demanding since Disney announced spinoffs, right?

I think this is a good move, personally. Star Wars is a hot mess right now, if the rumors going around are true. The director firings, the divisive response to TLJ, and Solo underperforming has cost Disney a lot, and they need to save the brand somehow. Otherwise Star Wars movies will lose that "big event" feel they've always had. It sort of happened with Solo, and I think Disney realizes they need to change things, fast, before the franchise loses its magical aura.

I assume the Mynock and the breathing tubes are what is exclusive to this set?

I already technically have these thanks to Jesse James grabbing the Kmart exclusives a few years back. Easy pass

Too lazy to find a pic but there's a Gamestop exclusive figure of Spider-Man in the outfit from the new Playstation 4 game on the way

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILERS)
« on: June 6, 2018, 12:30 PM »
Saw it for a second time last night and felt roughly the same. Alden is great as Han, and made even better that he's not trying to imitate Harrison Ford. Donald Glover is a fantastic Lando, again nailing the character and not trying to play Billy Dee. Still hate that Maul is back in movie form, still think Proxima topples DJ as the worst character in any of the movies.

The only thing I can hope for with this set is that enough people pass because they don't know who the characters are. If so, there's a chance I can own one. If not, I guess I'll never own the droids (Aphra is being rereleased on a Vinty card).

Don't count on it.  Aphra is popular enough to win the fan's choice poll - so while us ORIGINAL FANS have no idea what her deal is, all the poseur noobs seem to love her.   :-*

Okay, so there are TWO ways we can get this set from HTS:

1. OT fans turning their noses up at these Literally WHO characters

2. New fans who know the characters turning their noses up at these 4 inch figures since they only buy 6 inch

 ;D

So does seeing Island Journey Rey and DJ mean I missed 4-LOM? If so I better save myself the stress and order online

This set is currently on sale on Gamestop's website for $40, and free shipping since it's over $35! I finally bit the bullet with that price

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors

I wonder what the odds are that Hasbro will rerelease a certain figure due to the cameo in the movie?

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILERS)
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:55 AM »
Saw it last night... I'm undecided. Thumbs in the middle leaning towards down for now. I'll probably see it a second time at least. There were parts I really enjoyed and parts that made me roll my eyes so fast I almost passed out. Mostly the typical Hollywood cliches during the Lord and Miller portions.

Donald Glover was AWESOME as Lando, and there were actually points where I thought it actually was Billy Dee. I thought Alden was good too; he wasn't trying to play Harrison Ford, rather just trying to play the character Han, if that makes sense.

Lady Proxima was so, so bad. Literally the worst Star Wars character ever!

REY IS A MARY SUE! CHINESE WOMEN CAN'T KISS BLACK MEN! ADMIRAL PURPLE HAIR IS A STUPID **** AND UNFIT FOR MILITARY COMMAND! JJ ABRAMS' FAVORITE KEYS ON A KEYBOARD ARE CTRL, C, AND V! THAT CASINO WAS TOO MUCH LIKE THE PREQUELS! Okay I think that's most of the TLJ complaints :P

The Disney films have been far from perfect, and I sure have had both my likes and dislikes about them. But some of the stuff these "purists" are complaining about is just ridiculous. The entire point of TLJ was to train fans to let go, and most refuse to do so.

If you hate everything Disney has it's name on then that is fine. It's all opinion. Disney loves to make a quick buck. But why then is your reaction to hop on sites dedicated to this universe we love and go on and on and on about how terrible it is and how "now I'm embarrassed about being known as the Star Wars guy with the people I know".

I quit watching pro wrestling a few years ago but still frequent some of the sites since I have made good "friends" with other posters. Every week, it's the same thing; show airs Monday night, everyone says it's the worst episode ever, why can't it be as good as it was 20 years ago, people vowing to stop watching forever. Then the next week it's the same people watching and complaining, and spending the rest of the week talking about how much the show sucks. This is what the Star Wars/Disney hatred stuff reminds me of. If it's so bad, why continue to watch? Turn the TV and computer off and go for a walk; you might find a new hobby in the process.

Sidenote, I do love how the Prequels are now well regarded thanks to memes, and children who grew up with them entering the world of the Internet.
