The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" First Order Playset?

I never got the AT-ACT, even when it was $89 at Target, but I'll probably get this on sale. I'm a BB-8 fan and I've wanted the Jakks version, so this seems like a better deal. I also mainly want the figures, though I suspect we'll see both in other forms.

Because I should be doing something else - here are some hopeful sets we'll see in the future in this segment:

Luggabeast w/ Teedo or maybe Rey w/ X-Wing Fighter Helmet

Grummgar w / Bazine Natal

Crusher Roodown w/ Bobbajo

Picador w/ Geonosian Warrior

So Yakface continues their excellent detective work by finding images of this set. I like it. Not as tricked out as I expected for the $$$, but it's fun. Kind of glad I didn't grab the Jakks BB-8 now.

Saw someone had found a pic of Kylo at Amazon.es and so I went snooping (search Black Series 8 and also Black Series E8) and found boxed pics of Rey, Kylo and Luke.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)
« on: August 11, 2017, 07:35 PM »
Magazine is at B&N today. Loving everything I'm hearing so far. Not hip on some of the designs, but no major gripes. I'm no longer surprised by the griping/complaining online from certain quarters, but always surprised by its sustainability. I shouldn't be, because it's primarily attributable to the marketability of the negativity itself. But so it goes.

Most of the HOW DARE THEY with Luke seems to ignore the premise of the last film. I like what they're doing. He's the Fisher King. Rey is the Knight Errant. The saber is the grail, perhaps, and Luke's rejuvenation will be the galaxy's. I totally buy Luke retreating from duty and from life after such a massive failure as he experienced with Kylo. He had accomplished this miracle with his father and defeating the Empire than he might have felt he could do anything, and as his Jedi fathers did before him, looked past some important stuff. Looking forward to the movie.

One of the few exclusives I found right off the bat. Good for folks who still need him.

If these are out for Force Friday, will make an interesting dilemma as far which figures I buy. Nah, I'll buy them all.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)
« on: August 8, 2017, 04:21 PM »
Kind of like I mentioned in an earlier post, this would be very destabilizing for Dany, not just in terms of her claim, but her sense of purpose. Her entire life is going to be turned upside down. This might be where this season ends, actually, with her on the verge perhaps of finally taking the throne, or having taken it, to have it taken out from under her.

I go back to her vision at the end of season 2, in the House of the Undying. She enters the throne room which has been partially destroyed. It is winter. She approaches the throne, intent to take it, but then leaves it behind. She follows the cry of the dragons out the gate and through the Wall. I think her ultimate destiny is in the North, against the White Walkers.

Probably is the Judicial Trooper, which along with the Elite Guards is not all that interesting.  :-\

104
If this turns out to be the guards, I'll definitely be skipping. To my eye they're not interesting at all. Something about them makes me think of vintage Dr. Who and not in a good way. I'm curious to see if the Knights of Red will play any role going forward. I'd love figures of all of those guys.

She's still be the rightful heir to the throne - trueborn daughter versus bastard son.

That's possible, though there may be legitimacy to R+L that we're unaware of in terms of marriage. That would place Jon ahead of Dany in the line of succession, and in reality - which I don't know the show will get to since it's speeding up so fast - the public revelation of his ancestry would be political disaster for Dany, regardless of his legitimacy. For the people of Westeros, it would be the devil you know, or in this case, the Targaryen.

If Jon and Danerys both survive to the end, who ends up on the Iron Throne?  What do you do with the one who doesn't get the throne?

I've always been of the thought that it's not Dany's ultimate fate to end up as queen. I believe she dies in battle defeating the White Walkers. The throne, if there's one at all, is going to go to someone out of left field (Missandei strikes me as a suitable populist who is a bit better at articulating Dany's vision than the queen herself, sometimes).
