    I'm not a super fan, and my memory isn't as good. But I don't think the USS Enterprise D (the ship on TNJ) ever went down into the atmosphere because if I recall right, it was incapable of (only its saucer could).

    You might be thinking of TOS episode Tomorrow is Yesterday:



    Or Star Trek Enterprise episode Storm Front.

    It was daylight and maybe the farm was in france but I could be wrong.
    That sounds exciting.

    Marvel stuff (mostly the main MCU trio, IM, CA and Thor) and some DC stuff (Batman and Superman) for boys, Frozen/Tangled stuff for girls. The usual classics like hotwheels/matchbox, basket/soccer balls, bikes and toy guns (like Nerf) are still popular among boys as are dolls like Barbie or other playsets for girls.

    The era of the original-story blockbuster is long gone.

Without nostalgia, I don't think SW as a franchise has anything to stand on right now.
    Wait a minute, where's this "new generation of fans" I kept hearing about for the past five years?

    They probably exist... Forced by their parents to like it. Like Piano Lessons.

    Then why can't I get a bunch of 6" ANH stormtroopers for 1-3$ each? I need some heads. So I can spike them and use with my 6" Mando figs.

    And I wouldn't let a small child near my toys. Especially the Mando AT-ST since it wants to fall over.

    Yeah, but it's not like being a fan of something NEW. Like listening to Favreau talk about seeing SW for the first time at 10 years old and being blown away. LOTR, SW, POTC, Jurassic Park, Transformers, even MCU and DC now - part of the culture. Stuff that was never done before has been done.

    Also, thanks to the pacing of these ST films like a video game. It's hard to backtrack and think like a 10 year old, but hard to develop a relationship with characters if they are moving too fast. Or relate to the blue milk thing unless u live on a dairy farm I guess.
