Every time I see one of the cars I get all giddy inside. I love them. I want them. I think I'm going to start collecting them. :D

They indeed nabbed me speeding with the cameras. BUT because it's my first offense, they gave me a WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :)

Seen TFA nine times now. Waiting for it to hit the budget theater before going again. Already got an email saying this is the LAST WEEK it will be playing on the Ultrascreen. I assume it will still be on smaller screens for several more weeks. Deadpool will be taking over the big screens.

I was an amateur fighter - well used to slugging it out. Then I started fencing. The first few times I faced my instructor, I realized how fast a blade in the hands of someone skilled can end your life.

Doesn't matter how tough you are. Blink of an eye.

Lead actors are expensive assets. I imagine sometimes it makes a lot of sense to use doubles, even for relatively minor stuff. Depends on the actor and the shooting schedule, I guess.

Meh. Ever since TFA came out there's been more than the usual amount of questionable content. Finn sets people off in disturbing ways that go beyond not liking the character (which by itself would be fine)...someone (not me) suggests diversity or something in Star Wars and people yell "Gay Agenda!" and call it 'values'.

I'm not one to get offended easily. I used to date this heavy duty radical chick and she was a total drag, you couldn't move without "offending" her. But even I can see when things are crossing weird and uncomfortable lines.

My values revolve around you know -- doing no harm, being able to love and/or **** who you want, treating society like a team where everyone -- especially kids -- have at least a chance to belong. If they screw that up it's on them, but I have an inherent sense of fair play that makes me crotchety when I see people marginalizing others because their life or their own challenges are different.

I'm all grown up now (except for the dolls), but I came of age in a diverse, accepting, post-punk, alternative crowd back in the '90s and I guess it's still a big part of who I am.

devilof76
02-08-2016, 04:53 AM
I ignore most TFA conversation (becoming insular in my old age) so I'm short on examples of what you're talking about. I hitchhiked to Mardis Gras in '94 with an Afghani immigrant. My father's best friend in Vietnam was a black guy from Philly. I'm a last wave Gen-X'er from late 60's parentage, hailing from Kennedy democrat Catholic WWII vets. I was radical in my youth, but never a social theory zealot. I simply had an aggressive disdain for society's limits and artificial structures that were either ignorant or ambivalent of the harms they did to those in the margins. At this point in my life, I'm equally distrustful of either side seeking to impose values on the whole, and my respect is reserved for those who rise or fall on the merits of their own minds.

What has become apparent to me is that those who dispense with inclusion as a value are much less likely to categorize threats to their status by demographic. They can understand the world according to the values any given individual can offer, and they see group politics for the inept chicken-**** sycophancy that it is.

I wish everyone could get past the need to rely on external perception of their worth. From feminists to pick-up artists, racial supremacists to racial opportunists, fascist statist to communist statist, fundamentalist faithful to apologist faithful, they're all missing the point, simultaneously seeing themselves persecuted by the other and persecuting, concocting the ultimate alibi by which to claim power over their adversary. It's too dumb and ugly to bear, but it's becoming the norm by which radicals and the mainstream are finding common ground.

Let me know the next time you see that crap around here. I can promise one hell of a show.

Aliaz
02-08-2016, 05:10 AM
I know what you mean ZE. Alot of that crap in TFA threads, which is why I've stopped reading.

Like the guy that said he wasn't a racist, he like Finn but he was just to...you know...not black...Urban for his tastes.

Unfortunately I see and hear alot of that stuff everyday. It seems like people are very eager to see themselves as victims persecuted by someone else and they are caught up in trying to point the finger at what everyone else is doing wrong.

Spent the afternoon at the mall with my wife. We swing in to the Lego store and she snags a UCS TIE Fighter and simply says she knows I had been wanting it. She knows me too well!

Nice!


She needed a stunt double? She didn't really have much action, other than running, besides the action in my dreams...

She didn't want to perform in your dreams, so stunt double. :lol

So after only picking up issue #1 of the new Star Wars comic and deciding I was ok with that... for my birthday my brother got me issues #7-#14 all the action figure variant covers! :lol So now, I am on the hunt to fill spots. hahaha. Bought #15 at the comic shop yesterday and bought a few this morning from a seller on ebay (Chewy, Obi, 3PO, R2, and Leia) but still need these:
#1 Luke figure variant
#2 Han figure variant
#4 Boba figure variant
#7 Boba B&W which I don't think I care too much to get unless I just don't get #4 and get this as a cheaper option perhaps

Also want
#1 Darth Vader figure variant
#1 Lando figure variant

I'll have to research what else is out there... I know there is a young Anakin, but not sure if I want to go after all of them. I'll probably grab a regular #2 and just read the story, and hope that in 10 years I can get Boba and Han at decent prices. :/

Those action figure covers are pretty awesome. I got the digital trades and unfortunately those covers aren't included. With the idea that the comic is supposed to be canon, it is kind of ridiculous, but it's enjoyable when I don't think of it in those terms. Would love to see Brian K. Vaughan take a crack at some SW comics.

100% Agreed. Some of the stuff (especially in the main STAR WARS title) drives me freaking nuts when I realize it's canon.

Luke and Vader meeting (with lightsabers ignited) between ANH and EMPIRE?

Luke and Boba Fett having a battle in Obi-Wan's hut on Tatooine (and Luke winning)???


GTFO!!!! Nonsense.

It was great fun reading those to gear up for TFA but now that the new movie is out I'm finding that I don't really need to follow the Marvel series so much anymore.

As far as I'm concerned Fett is still voiced by Jason Wingreen (RIP,) is still an ex-super-commando turned bounty hunter and his backstory run in with the heroes was the one depicted in The Holiday Special where he was a sneaky bastard who more or less got the best of the heroes.

The reason I want Rey and BB8 is more aesthetic driven. Star Wars originals I want for the obvious reasons; they're classic.

Something about the scrappy looking female paired with a diminutive robot appeals to me on a more general sci-fi level.

But as the hype wears off I don't feel I need to represent the ST characters -- I really enjoyed TFA, but it's not classic OT, woven into my childhood and popular culture.

I'm partially nostalgia-blind, but compared to the marketing machines of today, the way SW worked its way into cultural consciousness seems almost quaint and organic by comparison. :lol

[...]I was radical in my youth, but never a social theory zealot. I simply had an aggressive disdain for society's limits and artificial structures that were either ignorant or ambivalent of the harms they did to those in the margins.

When I was younger I shared that "aggressive disdain" you describe, but it was on a more personal level and my social outlook wasn't as well-developed as it is now.


At this point in my life, I'm equally distrustful of either side seeking to impose values on the whole, and my respect is reserved for those who rise or fall on the merits of their own minds.

I've had more than my share of run-ins with those falling on the far left of the spectrum. Invariably I've been shocked by their aggression, hate and what I might describe as a misguided will-to-power. Social engineering always ends in tears.

My preference for an intellectual meritocracy isn't shared by society at large, unfortunately, and we both know untempered intellect by itself can (strangely) be a blunt instrument. Lots of moving parts.


What has become apparent to me is that those who dispense with inclusion as a value are much less likely to categorize threats to their status by demographic. They can understand the world according to the values any given individual can offer, and they see group politics for the inept chicken-**** sycophancy that it is.

I concur.


I wish everyone could get past the need to rely on external perception of their worth.

That particular human failing is sadly amplified in this particularly bad cultural moment.


Let me know the next time you see that crap around here. I can promise one hell of a show.

The poor moderators. ;)

I ignore most of the juvenile garbage I read, but there have been a couple of times I've been moved to respond. Even so, I've "kept the safety on" so to speak. I don't believe certain things should go unanswered -- ever. But there are limits to dealing with anonymous cowards on a toy forum.



I know what you mean ZE. Alot of that crap in TFA threads, which is why I've stopped reading.

Like the guy that said he wasn't a racist, he like Finn but he was just to...you know...not black...Urban for his tastes.

Yeah, that one set me off. That was Trenken.


Unfortunately I see and hear alot of that stuff everyday. It seems like people are very eager to see themselves as victims persecuted by someone else and they are caught up in trying to point the finger at what everyone else is doing wrong.

Yep. False dichotomies rule the day.

Yeah, I heard about that putrid nonsense, too. I'd just already given up on the comic by the time they got around to that.

In a way, they ARE a fun read. Because they absolutely read like a 12 year old is playing with his action figures and making silly stuff up as they go. But that's also the problem: This nonsense is now CANON. :slap

Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro have joined the cast of “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” Disney confirmed on Monday.

The studio also announced that newcomer Kelly Marie Tran will have an unspecified role in the latest installment of the space opera.

Dern scored Oscar nominations for her work in “Rambling Rose” and “Wild,” and effectively ducked velociraptors and T-rexes in “Jurassic Park.” Upcoming projects include Jennifer Fox’s “The Tale” and Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women.”

Del Toro scored an Oscar playing a morally conflicted cop in “Traffic,” earned another nomination for “21 Grams,” and headlined the likes of “Sicario” and “Savages.” He next reprises his role as the Collector in “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.” An earlier Variety report said that Del Toro will play the villain role in the new “Star Wars.”

Principal photography on “Star Wars: Episode VIII” begins Monday at Pinewood Studios in London. The film hits theaters on December 15, 2017, when it should mint money.

“Looper” director Rian Johnson wrote the screenplay and will replace “The Force Awakens'” J.J. Abrams behind the camera. Cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis will all return for the latest sequel.

R5 is nice but to me 12 back > 20 back. I'd go with the jawas.

Deadpool was great. I was confused about two things -

1. Was this made under the Disney/Marvel brand?
2. If that was a Helicarrier he was on, what kind was that?

It's made by Fox not Disney, so under the banner of X-Men movies.

It was a 20th Century Fox film made in that universe

although the joke he made about the studio not funding them enough for more X-Men or the joke about McAvoy and Stewart was hilarious.

No, it was a regular one.

20th Century Fox cannot utilize anything from the Marvel Studios realm including anything with SHIELD.

The short film released today about the start of episode VIII filming makes me wonder if we'll see a TFA Luke; and if we did, what would be the point in getting it when they're bound to do an Episode VIII Luke that will be similar but better?

The Mike
02-15-2016, 04:36 PM
HT will bleed the Star Wars licenses dry. Look at what they've done with the Batman licenses and how many they revisited characters for even the smallest of "upgrades"

I wouldn't be shocked if Luke got a TFA and an Episode VIII version, same with Rey in her end of TFA costume and then an Episode VIII version even if they look the same.

Thanks for the responses about R5D4 vs. Jawas everyone. Yes, I'm trying to keep to the 12 back run, too - so the Jawas do make sense in that respect. The thing is, here in Australia I'm looking at $200 AUD for R5D4 vs. $350 AUD for Jawas, and that's a significant difference...

Some guy here in Sweden is doing a lottery on Facebook with a bunch of MOC vintage figures instead of just selling them. I just had to enter, you pick a number/numbers between 1-50, and pay about $7.50 per number and week. And one person wins a figure every friday.

Apparently production conceptual art came out that was actually titled "Helicarrier" and it was leaked that the production team decided to put it in and change it enough to make it recognizable but not recognizable to send them to court, same with Bob.

What's the ETA on that version?

He's actually been done since September (after 3+ years of painstaking work). He was going to just release it free on the internet ala Team Negative. However, some of the people who consulted on his project (including Harrison Ellenshaw, Lorne Peterson and others who actually worked on the film) suggested he first see if Disney/LFL/Fox might be interested in using his version for an official release. So that meeting & official presentation is actually happening sometime this year. Not sure when, though. But trust me it will be worth the wait. It's immaculate from first frame to the last. And it's in full 4K.

Fingers crossed the Disney/LFL/Fox agree to use his and release it officially to the world at some point. He's not even asking for any $, only that they let him and his consultants oversee the mastering of any official release.

Harmy and Team Negative will do in the meantime, though. :)

That is really amazing, especially the fact that they’re fine with not getting any money, just the privilege of getting to work on it.

Nope. It's actually just a fan with lots of talent and lots of industry connections.

I seriously doubt even Robert Harris would pay as much attention to detail as this guy did, even when it comes to color-correction and color-timing. And instead of running the whole film through one restoration process and then going back and tweaking he literally worked on it one shot at a time.

Good news. We will need to see where it takes us.

However, please don't be fooled into believing anything will be in this gorgeous 4K image that is being touted by the electronics industry.

It was not filmed in 4K and therefore cannot be displayed in true 4K. It may be scanned in at 4K but that is it.

There are very few films that will be true 4K and TBH Star Wars is not one that will TRULY benefit from the higher res given the source material.

Well, it's not exactly the best kept secret anymore, so... his name is Mike Verta. He's one of the original members of the R2 Builders Club and a working composer and FX artist. (He was also once married to and has a son with actress Danica McKellar, as TheMike immediately recognized :lol) But mainly he's just a huge, original Star Wars fan.

He has some examples of his restoration work on his Vimeo. I'll point out that they look even better than this now:

Quite possibly, but I'm pretty sure Verta was blessed with better tools, more source materials, more experience, and consultation from people who actually worked on the film, including the matte artist.

That said, I would never dismiss Harmy's efforts at all, and what he has done for this film and its fans. He :rock

No doubt those things come into play, but I don't think it's fair to say Verta's is a "labor of love" and the ones that are out now are not.

It's almost like a slap in the face to those that worked on it. Just saying.

That wasn't my intention. I didn't say the others weren't. It was asked why he would just give it to LFL/Disney/Fox for free (since he's presenting it to them in hopes that they will release it officially) and that's the answer. Of course the others were labors or love as well.
