Hey Hasbro! / Re: TVC Special Action Figure Set 3-Pack Ideas
« on: June 6, 2018, 05:25 PM »
Shirtless Anakin and Shirtless Kylo could hang out and mock shirtless Luke...  all SA too. 🤷‍♂️

Ill just add the most likely scenario here...

4. Miracle.

Correct it’s the only way to get the droids and I don’t think there are any BAD parts that come close to even 0-0-0’s colors and things.  I have the Black 3po from the park and it looks really nothing like that.  Clearly the astromech is equally impossible at the park too.

Given recent years, I have no hope for this being “easy to get” by Hasbro toy shop or otherwise.  It’s really gonna be a pain and I’m afraid this one will cost a pretty penny for a while and not really come down to sanity like the 6” Exclusive stuff.

I stopped in this past weekend and it was meh.  50% is ok I guess and I got a Hermit Luke and Rey 2-pack and two imperial bikes from rebels.  It’ll do.

I’d like a cheap atact, but I’ll live without it Cuz my stores don’t have them at all.

So anyone get their tickets already.  Unfortunately I’m back to likely not going this year but such is life.  Too much $ for me ultimately, and too many responsibilities at home to pony up that kind of cash for hotel and things. 😕

Agree on the Solo part.

Lol not sarcastically at Rob just completely at Muftak’s reaction pic being 100% accurate.  People will flip even though Ehrenreich did a great job despite all the horse **** posted about him.  Ford can’t do it but man he has a lot of untold adventures.  Would love to see his OSS days now that those are a thing but that’s more actual Indy era.

Man would people freak out.  Just chimps screaming and ******** themselves levels of hysteria.

Still never seen that flatbed truck in a store, ever.  Kind of a bummer as I’d like one.

Lol yeah “fans” ugh.

It’s ok not to like something.  I don’t care for TPM or AotC these days.  They’re meh.  Lucas is still important in my life and always will be.  The Canto Bight stuff in TLJ for me was meh, no worse or better than PT meh, and KK, RJ, and JJ ruined NOTHING about my life.

Health issues have ruined some aspects of my life.  Losing someone has ruined something in my life.  These movie issues have all been things I move on from.

If it’s “ruining” anything to you, you’ve got soul searching to do.  You don’t have to like it but keep **** in perspective.  Star Wars EU still exists.  The original movies are still there like you remember them.  These movies are as easy to ignore as they are to intricately pick apart.  And if you’re mad because “SJW crap ruined Star Wars!”, I feel like you’re just hopeless.  Letting that ruin something for you just is sad. :-\

I’m not a big podcast guy so I wasn’t even sure what was going on totally there Nick so thanks for clearing some of that up for me haha.

I don’t know that dude and stuff but I hear a LOT of “original fans” talk.  As a dude who was collecting prior to a modern line existed, who had the WEG books as the EU, and who saw the films as a kid when they came out, I get so sick of people trying to say “well the old fans hate this Disney crap!”

No YOU hate it.  Don’t lump me into your generalizations!  But there is so much of that going on. 

Likewise nobody cares if you hate it either.  Leave the rest of us alone who aren’t obsessed with hating it or *gasp* maybe even like a lot of it.

The most normal conversations I’ve had with people who didn’t like TLJ were here for the most part and with CorranHorn (who’s also here) on Facebook.  That has been it.🤷‍♂️

The Star Wars twitter account wished Kathleen Kennedy a happy birthday and the tweet had to be deleted because of the **** that was said in it.  That is sad on a level that should just simply be embarrassing to everyone in it.

I am a huge Dark Forces/Jedi Knight game and storyline fan.  I never asked for, nor did I want at first, a Rogue One story because I knew it would kinda blow up Katarn’s mission to get the Death Star plans and then it also fudged a part of XWing too which I love.

But I wound up loving it.  It would take something epically bad for me to say I’m not going to watch it at all.  I can’t see turning your back on Star Wars.  Then again I look T this stuff from Disney as really just EU since Lucas isn’t making it.  It’s like if new Middle Earth material comes out.  How can you look at it as on the same level as Tolkien’s work unless you personally see or read it and you think it’s good enough for YOU and whatever your personal standard is.

A billionaire could’ve bought Star Wars from Lucas and shuttered it if he wanted.  Disney just outbid the next company....  more or less.

I like what I like and don’t what doesn’t suit me and that’s it.  It’s not the big deal people make it out to be.  If you prefer old EU nobody told you to burn your books.  If you hate The ST so be it...

At the same time I’ve seen normal conversations from ST fans and non fans and at some point it boils down to agree to disagree and move on.  At its core is the fact that people who don’t like it can’t stop it from happening and people who do are just simply content.  I don’t personally want to convince someone why I liked TLJ and they should too, but back to your original point GMNick, I also don’t want to talk about it with like minded people only to have a peppering of “TLJ sucks” “Rey is a Mary Sue” “Luke is ruined” and “#NotMyHanSolo” Forced into otherwise normal fun speculating analyzing comparing and commenting. 🤷‍♂️

I couldn’t start a topic on the war on mimban because some shitbags are gonna jump in.  Can do that here of course but in social media or Disqus(t) or whatever, it’s just a mess of angry guys who can’t change the direction Star Wars is headed, don’t want to talk about what is done in the films as it stands, and just want to now basically **** on anyone else’s fun who is enjoying it. 🤷‍♂️

I think riker might be a better example from Trek.  That was one sexed up dude.

Kasdan did just add more fuel to the political ****storm that is Star Wars right now. But to me it was such a just passing remark in an interview that I just don’t see the reason to rage on it.  Like you said Nick it’ll probably never be overtly displayed just something Kasdan thinks is applicable to the character.  Wonder where Lucas would stand?

Oof, yeah that was one of their more constantly advertised stores ok their front page too.

Oh well there are always amazon and eBay affiliate links you can exploit without ever publicly stating your “news” is really just a sponsor link shilling **** to your readers.

Pansexual doesn’t stop him from being a “ladies man” at all...  if anything, he’s an “everything’s man”.

I see no agenda and don’t see why anyone else does honestly.

Kasdan was asked something in an interview and he answered...  I saw nothing overtly displayed regarding Lando’s sexuality one way or another in the movie.  He clearly loved L3 but what that entailed who knows.  The interview seems to get people’s knickers in a twist over nothing really.

Personally I found it kind of funny and there was a fellow made a comment somewhere I cannot recall, but he said basically “did anyone ever really think Lando wasn’t the kind of guy who’d bang everything that moved, given the chance?”, and that to me sums him up.  Will he bang men too?  I dunno.  I don’t care either.  Maybe.  But I think he’d bang sentient Jello for the experience.

With all the species in Star Wars, i think Pansexual describes probably a lot of people in that galaxy.🤷‍♂️

Oh snap!  Well hey he brought that on himself.  It’s ****** constant.

And he’s got no real reason to complain people focused on him either.  He’s the guy saying there should be some hierarchy in website interaction with Hasbro and a lot of places should be kicked off that list.  That’s a pretty troll move on his part, and shows he’s just a prick really.

Phruby, I dunno if Lando is Pansexual but I do know he mere simple mention of it in a friggin interview triggered so much bull**** on social media and elsewhere that it made me ashamed to consider some of the commenters “peers” in this hobby and fandom in general.  I’d say some of the reaction was so overtly homophobic that those people need to have a long look in the mirror about their own hangups on sexuality in general.

To me the interview remarks by Kasdan and subsequently Glover were taken and blown way way out of proportion.  I saw some tools even implying they had to explain pansexuality to their kids and refusing to go to Star Wars films and stuff like it’s now about space orgies and rated nc17.  Just pure overreaction stupidity.
