Middle Earth / Re: Lord of the Rings Figures

I sold almost all of my LOTR figure 7-8 years ago...I just checked eBay and Iím sure glad I did...hundreds and hundreds of non sold auctions at retail prices

Itís a shame because this line was probably my third favorite ever behind SW and The Simpsonís (which I also unloaded)

And I had everything...there are probably some rarer of the ďTrilogyĒ figures that hold some value but most of them are not selling  :-[

I just got Owen, probably the same auction after I lost right before XMas...I think Iím officially 100% complete with the Build a Vehicle Chases...

Saw it again today in IMAX which was kick ass...

Night one didnít hit me as hard emotionally as this viewing did...Han and Leia saving their son and his redemption was so perfectly done I love how all of that played out

I literally had tears in my eyes from the Death Star duel on...And stuff I liked night one I liked even more

John Williams absolutely nailed the score on this...the notes being played during Rey and Rens fight on the Death Star was was the main theme swelling as the fleet of nobodyís show up

I still donít get the First Order ships falling from the sky on Endor and Bespin

My boys and I were talking on the way home, with the Sith gone and Rey and Finn allowed to rebuild the Jedi Order how are they going to set up the new Big Bad(s)?   Yuuzahn Vong type of threat from outside the Galaxy?  I canít believe this is the end of their stories...and so want to know where they think what they can dream up next.

John Williams score was absolutely fantastic

Luke raising his X-Wing to Yodaís theme (as a ghost none the less) and smiling was fantastic

Loved the Jedi talking to Rey but they made some odd choices to include...Kanan? Aayla?  Adi Gallia who never spoke in the prequels?   

Like others have said the Endgame parallels are definitely there as the fleet shows up but man that scene with all the ships gave me absolute goosebumps.   

I will admit that I really didnít get too emotional which surprised me, I cried like a baby when Tony Stark died and during his funeral...but I will say that the final scene with Rey and Ben was absolutely perfect

I smiled the whole way home and still have a big grin on my face, long live Star Wars

Was that Last Order Destroyers falling from the sky or First Order?   I missed that detail

The spurs jangling are a dead give away for Boba Fett

Or have Boba Fett show up at the end?  They had to go to Tatooine to pick up his story line, unless that was a complete fake out.   

Was finally able get one of these...screw Walmart

Watched TLJ for first time in a long time, the warts have worn off except the stupidness of the whole Canto Bight deal.   I know JJ has said many times and I totally agree Kylo and Rey v. the Praetorian Guards is so kick ass...and so is the finally battle on Crait.

Finished last night, awesome season and lots of love to many of our favorite movies.  Dustin hands down is the greatest part of this season

Now the wait starts for S4

Iím smiling, Ďtwas the best show ever and they knocked it out of the park...

Like I said, I donít disagree they rushed the last two seasons, Iím not signing a stupid petitions to remake anything, the story was told and written and played out beautifully

Itís hard to believe tonight is the end...I rewatched the first episode last night, amazing to think what has happened on the show, my life, the world

I hope the books do the end of the series justice, they surely could have run the last two seasons out by two...people bitching about the pace and plot are sort of right, I look past most of the bitching and focus on the narrative, itís there and I really canít wait to read how Martin gets us to this same spot.

Have fun tonight everyone!!!
