Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Official Space Exploration Thread

I spent two hours trying to find Lovejoy, last night. Finally gave up and stared at Jupiter. With my telescope I can make out three rings and about five moons.

Thus far, I've only heard pretty good things, as well. I might just hold off for the TPB and go ahead and get that Deadpool Minibus. I'm finishing up on the Dark Phoenix Saga, which I was able to get for $1 on Comixology not long ago -- I love the classics.

Is anyone reading Original Sin and if so, is it worth a blind buy? Been craving some comic book action, its either this or picking up Deadpool's Minibus.

I got mine!   ;D  8)

See 17 Minutes of Guardians of the Galaxy Early in Select IMAX Theaters

Linky to tickets, limit of 2

Me too. Me and a couple of folks are driving forty-five minutes one-way to see this seventeen-minute trailer. Not that terribly excited about the film, but I have a feeling watching it with a bunch of friends will make the difference.

Is it safe to assume that the Endor Rebel jumping on the speeder bike at the end was game play footage?

No, I wouldn't say that is a safe assumption. Even when we gamers see real in-game footage at, say, E3, we are still asses if we assume the final product will look as good. I just hope the console port doesn't suck for PC gamers.

I mean random for the consumer.

I get the sense that the new EU is going to try to expand more on stories that have been established during this new Disney era.  And the vision of the filmmakers will be given the utmost consideration over other material.  THIS is the price of getting a Sequel Trilogy.

I'll gamble the old days of picking up a random EU book and finding yourself at a random point on the timeline are completely over -- especially with DarkHorse gone. And that is a real damned shame.

Once the new movies come out, we and others will likely attempt to rationalize everything so that, somehow, all of those pieces actually fit. And then another Disney entry ignoring fan-favorite EU, and again we try to bend THAT into EU. Eventually, it won't work anymore - and we "old timers" that cling to the old ways will gradually be banned from forums populated by Star Wars fans who subscibe to Disney's way of things.

See you in hell, Walt Disney and George Lucas!

I would love to see a poll on the most enjoyed / least enjoyed EU contributions.

I'm guessing the Thrawn Trilogy, Shadows of the Empire, and the Rogue Squadron Series would be favorites?

...and how are you going to tell me Grand Admiral Thrawn doesn't exist?

Yeah, the only SSC I regret passing on, ever, is the Gamorrean Guard -- and that one I have planned to substitute with a repainted Hasbro, whenever I find the time and can locate a cheap one on eBay. I don't see myself a year from now thinking "shucks!" on R2. The Hasbro version is pretty good, from what I remember.

I actually snagged both Compendiums during a Wal-Mart glitch, but Wal-Mart being incompetent, mailed me two Vol. 1's -- so I have one here and at work.

...and I still haven't read past the first few pages.

Bump. I am hearing $150. Not a bad price for what all is included.

So it goes. I loved the Thrawn stuff and jumped right in when the post ROTJ stuff started. Then just as quickly . . . realized I would have to pick and choose what stories I followed.

That is what most of us have done for years, not only with the expanded universe, but with the stupid **** in the special editions and the prequels. Midichlorians is crap, Greedo never shot, Stormtroopers aren't clones, Anakin's ghost wasn't Sith Anakin because old Ben's ghost wasn't General Kenobi and Yoda's ghost wasn't that ******* ugly pignosed green puppet from Phantom Menace.

Disney can do whatever it wants to. I'll always accept the Caravan of Courage, Shadows of the Empire, Heir to the Empire, the Rogue Squadron books, and select stories from the Tales books and Empire comics that were awesome.

Why would a Jedi need to check someone's pulse, anyway?
