TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - It's Back

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...

I thought the same thing, although do we know if all of the remaining shows are roughly one hour in length?  I thought I recall reading that some were as long as two hours.

Longest episode has been confirmed at 80 minutes  :P

Saw it yesterday with the family.  While I loved the soundtrack and generally liked the movie, I didn't love it like I have a lot of its MCU predecessors.  I did like having Coulson back on the big screen and liked how Ronan's character was introduced, but it just didn't keep me engaged enough overall.  I'm hoping that the sequel connects this movie and where we find things in GOTG.

Not sure if this is a spoiler or not, so I'll preface the next part anyway...

What I'm really hoping is answered at some point, is how the tesseract ends up going from Howard Stark's possession to Mar Vell's possession.  In The Avengers, Fury tells Cap that Howard found it at the bottom of the ocean when he was looking for Cap.  So was Howard involved in Pegasus then, and that's how the tesseract changed hands?  That seemed like a pretty big plot hole to me, more than people complaining about the pager and it's lack of use in previous Avengers films...

If anyone is still looking for the Imperial Officer chase, send me a DM.  I ended up picking up an extra thinking I wouldn't win the auction  :P

Found a BB-8 at Target for $29.  The price wasn't marked on the shelf and didn't show up when I scanned it in the aisle, but it showed up on clearance at the register.  If you're able to find one in stores, it might be significantly discounted...

MikeT, those designs are amazing.  Really makes me miss these even more seeing excellent renderings like that!  Well done!

Been finishing my basement forever and finally found a place to display my 100% bricks again last weekend.  Got me pumped about finishing off the collection so I started looking around on Yahoo!Japan and ebay.  Was able to pick up the DX4 officer today.  One down, two to go.  Probably the hardest of the DX4 chases though - Hammerhead and AT-ST driver.

Also can't believe how many SW be@rs have been released over the last few years.  I sent Medicom a question about whether they are going to ever release more Kubricks and they said to regularly check their official blog  ::) :P  I take that as them saying it's a dead line...  Too bad...

So I ran into an issue with this and ended up not getting it as I had thought.  Long story but basically the seller refused to sell it to Celga and I never got it.  I did however get the Hammerhead I was looking for, so still back to needing only two to complete the regular releases.  The hunt remains!

Booked my hotel off site. Staying close to the Midway airport & can Uber or train it in. $800 Canadian for 7 nights, cheaper than onPeak hotel blocks. Plus I get free breakfast!

I grew up around Midway.  Hopefully you're South of the airport and not too far North.  From what I remember you didn't want to go much past 35th street...

Got my 5-day ticket.  Not sure if I'm going to be able to go all 5 days, but cheaper than buying individuals.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILER FREE)

Saw it last night.  Went in with an open mind as I was very skeptical of this movie.  I was thoroghly entertained.  My 14 year old said it was one of his favorite SW movies (I wouldn't go that far).  I thought that Donald Glover nailed it as Lando.  He was by far my favorite character.

Ended up getting my card in the mail today.  Pretty cool item to go along with the set.  Glad it finally came.
