      Surely there will be someone who get's sick of their Jyn who isn't an uber fan/collector like us here, and decides to sell her. However I guess they look at the prices and put theirs in accordingly.

      Do they have ebay classifieds in the states ? Here in Europe they have it and as a seller you don't need to pay any fees. The audience is only local, but I have found quite a few good deals there.

      TLJ just made me appreciate RO even more.

      Its like liking movies about the 60's more than those set in the present.

      It's still all Star Wars. [emoji4]

      That's a big part of it, yeah. But without nerding out with another laborious comparison essay, I'll add that the production design in general was a lot tighter, and not just because the environments weren't as diverse. But to each their own!

      The throne room scene was quite entertaining. I didn't love the Vader scene in RO, it actually felt a little overdone and forced (see what I did there?) -- but LOVED the Jedha gunfight and the space combat.

      Omg the vader scene was awesome! I heard it was added quite late as it wasn't originally planned. It's just fan service and doesn't make any sense considering how he moves and fights in ANH. However it was cool lol

      I didn't hate it! Just didn't integrate well for me, because of the reasons you mentioned.

      I've gotta say I loved it. Sure I can understand if you're wanting "full integration" it maybe doesn't fit. But the awesomeness of the scene just overrode any of those thoughts for me. If I was ever going to fess up to having a nerdgasm it would have been at seeing that scene. Definitely brought an instant smile to the face and thought to my head, this is going to be good !

      .....maybe for full integration they should have made the sliding door close on his foot, that's why he was so slow with Obi Wan in ANH ??...... I knew I should have been a director/Script writer

      The fight with Obi-Wan had to be slow for technology reasons. They didn't know how they would pull off the lightsaber yet, so the things were fragile light contraptions of some sort, and the actors couldn't really clash them hard.

      If I was George, I would have certainly re-edited that scene to give it more speed.

      The in-universe explanation may be that it was more a psychological fight than a physical one, and that Obi-Wan was just stalling... which makes sense and rhymes with TLJ, come to think of it.

      Almost looks like one of those Fathier animals from TLJ (Canto Bite). Scale is almost right :-)

      Great pics URDNOTSullivan! I'm so excited to get this figure. Even though it'll be a few months before she's paid off.

      Thanks for the compliments everyone. I'll be sure to pass along that you like her pictures and her kitten. Here is one more.

      Also for anyone still on the fence about Jyn, get the deluxe while you can because you will not regret it!

      This (minus the re-edited, I wouldn't change it a bit)

      Also, after Episode III, I'm sure Vader would be more careful against Obi-Wan than against a room filled with rebelscum. That scene is one of the easiest inconsistencies to "fix" into your "head-canon".

      Some times you can't over think things and just enjoy them. I think all star wars fans need that reminder.
