Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILERS)
« on: Today at 12:12 AM »
I don't know where I would rank this one, but pretty far behind Rogue One I think, which seems like the best comparison being the only other standalone film to date. I didn't dislike it, but i didn't feel like it exceeded my expectations in any way, which were pretty measured going in.

I think in retrospect, there were probably too many previews because I felt like I had seen most of the movie already played out in snippets, aside from a few surprises. I thought the cast was fine, there were a couple of plot points that felt weak or a little forced, but nothing too glaring.

Well, except for THAT scene. W T F?!? I don't even know where to start with that one. It was a jarring moment that really took me out of the rest of the movie I felt like. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the reasoning behind it.

If there was a letter between B and C that would be my grade I think. I don't feel a strong desire to see this again, though I'm sure I will.

Not gonna start a new thread


I have been too fearful/superstitious to publicly jump on the bandwagon, but HELLS YES!  ;D ;D ;D

After practically a whole season of screaming for Grubauer, I'm happy to eat my words as Holtby as been rock solid the past 2 games.

So happy for Alex too...he really deserves this.

Thank you for that, Jeff. That's why Id rather spend my time around here over any of the other fan sites. I do like Yakface a lot too, but get most of their scoops from the Twitter feed so I can avoid those kinds of douchey comments.

It's hard to escape though, I play the SW Galaxy of Heroes app a lot and even in there people are always posting stupid things in the Guild chats like BOYCOTT SOLO or FIRE KATHLEEN KENNEDY, etc.

The truck is cool! Some of the vehicles have RC functionality too. I agree they did a good job with this launch, it's like 3 times the stuff they released for Solo.

Got a shipping notice for the 6" Qi'ra I ordered off HTS a few weeks back...should be here today.  ;D

Sure wish they would put 4-LOM up because I am all but convinced this wave will never show up at retail. Baze/Chirrut Pt 2.

I saw a box of SWB 6" figures on a pallet at Target marked as "Hercules" - is that this Chewie?

Was hoping it might be the Gammy, but I doubt i'm that lucky.

Well, I guess that makes sense in light of all the other Asian exclusives there have been in this line, wait- er...huh?

Pretty annoying if true. They should have at least made some available to HTS or one of the online retailers.

I checked today and Ours is still at 30% off and no new stuff in awhile, starting to look pretty bleak in there.

All the Walmarts around me have raised their prices on 6" figures back up to $17.97 except for one, which I happened to check this morning and lo and behold, they turned out to be the first and only store I've seen yet that has put out this Solo shipper. No Tarkins, but they had nearly two full cases of everyone else from Wave 1. Yep, three cents a piece.  :D

It looks like a kitbash of the Amazon battle damaged trooper and those centerpiece sets. Pretty weak effort in this case, but the idea itself isn't terrible.

Reminds me of that TRU Greedo/Han 2-pack that would have been so much better if it had been an actual chair from the Cantina...

When was this set ever rumored? I totally missed that.

The only thing is, from a story perspective, it seems like they would need to have GOTG 3 before Avengers 4, but I guess they have figured out some way around that.

I've been stalking Brickseek for clearance prices on these and one of the local stores finally got down to $7 so I pounced. Grabbed the last few they had, crazy this exclusive had such a short shelf life.

Saw it last night, eeesh. Sort of wished I had paid more attention before going in because I thought the plan was to wrap everything up in one film.  :(

It was great and all but my overwhelming feeling after walking out was they just spent 2+ hours destroying everything they worked so hard for the past decade to build.

I also don't see how they can release any more Marvel movies now until IW 2. (Ant Man and Ms Marvel or whatever excepted)

I snagged a Qi'Ra for $16 since I will never find her or 4-LOM in a store apparently. Curious to see if she actually ships before 6/1...
