Pretty much everyone in that movie

About sums it up!

The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Figure 2-Packs

40 years later and I can't believe how easy it is to just dress up like an imperial and infiltrate any base or ship they have in the galaxy.

Do these people not know their co-workers?!

Especially Finn.  One of his Stormtrooper buddies recognized him on Takodana.

My guess is they aren't infiltrating an FO ship or facility but trying to avoid attention when they meet up with a contact.

I would think so.

But, yes, better to get this for the helmet and stands instead of the basic release

Anyone know if either of these is a big deal?

I don't, but I know that Finn thinks he is a Big Deal in the Resistance.  ;)  Sorry, couldn't resist.

Got mine.  Love it!

Our TRU had 1 case each of 6" wave 1 and 2.  I had Maz and Finn in hand, but put Finn back and Maz had wonky eyes, so I left her behind as well.

Emperor Ming's Magic Ring FTW!  :D

I don't know.  I think it's a lollipop ring.

Elite Praetorian Guard

The other version, correct?

Could this be a case of the writers being past the established GRRM and find themselves struggling to keep the narrative voice?

All this is thinking outloud for discussion... it's been awhile since I've read the books/seen the last season so fresh perspectives are welcome

1) I-magic Dragons.  All we heard about was how it was a Magic Wall filled with ancient magic.  Only to be taken out with dead dragon fire....  ok, fine - But then what was Night King's plan without the dragon?  How was he gonna get through the magic, impenetrable wall without the dragon he lucked into last week?  Or are we pretending that his plan all along was to get one of Dany's dragons to take out the wall... which I'm not sure how he would have known they were even alive?

Could the Night King have been made aware of the existence of the dragons and what is/has been going when Bran touched him in his "vision"?  Since that broke the spell that kept the previous three-eyed raven safe, maybe NK got some other knowledge as well? 

But, yes, whatever happened to the horn that was rumored to be the only thing to bring the wall down?  Just a myth?

3) Plot Expo-fest 2017 with Sam and Bran.  Nothing like spelling it all out for those who haven't been paying attention the past seven years I guess.  Nice to get Jon's real name, I guess. But again, just a clunky way to get that info out... right as Jon was getting a little incest on... so strange and creepy.  If only someone would let Jon in on it finally.

Targaryens were okay with that kind of stuff, Lannisters have no problems with it... no biggie, right?

Qyburn was expelled from being a Maester for practicing on the dead and dark things, so who knows how deep his love goes for dead things.  I would expect him to be studying/experimenting on the wight if they left it there.

A lot of this story is about family and redemption.  Theron is trying to make things right and is setting on the path to do so.  Jamie has been since meeting Brienne, but his judgment is cloud by his love for Cersei...

No direwolves though.

At some point in the finale, Daenerys will return to Dragonstone where she can expect 6-8 inches of Snow.

I'll show myself out.

Perhaps bigger.  It's called Long Claw for a reason.

Collections / Re: Displaying AT-ATs
« on: August 18, 2017, 10:00 PM »
I would agree that 3 AT-ATs are the general wish, but I'm curious if there were any purists why say 5 due to the establishing shot with 5 in the frame. Where did those two go anyway?

One was brought down by tow cable and Luke climbed up one and threw a grenade in it.  Not the official description but a decent explanation.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts
« on: August 16, 2017, 12:07 PM »
it makes me think that the 3.75" Black Series is probably coming back in some form for Force Friday.

And, with it being Walmart, I'm assuming that form is even MORE TFA Phasma/Han/Leia cases.  :P

No, these are being labeled as a TLJ preview wave, with some classic TFA figures thrown in for good measure.

There are a few of these speeders visible in one of the images of Canto Bight in this weeks Entertainment Weekly article.

Based on what we've heard about Canto Bight?  I was kind of thinking that it could potentially play into the Han Solo movie, too.  But that actually goes against this whole ethos that we've been hearing from Lucasfilm, and that's their attempts to make the Star Wars universe BIGGER, and not so neatly tied together.

I'm sure that's right.  Canto Bight might be the Monaco Casino whereas Han would be in some shady alleyway Hutt casino.
