OK, that's two.  But come on, every post over the last 18 pages is a new gripe.  You have more ammo than this.  Lighsabers, 3PO's red arm, Disney's "greed", Ford's old age, the hiring of young actors, Daniel Craig, camera angles, the 1 min 13 sec mark of the trailer, I want them all listed comprehensively from worst to first  @smilepunch@

 

PS...As a Star Trek fan, I was not thrilled with certain aspects of Into Darkness, it was definitely flawed.  Have you ever seen Abrams' MI3 or Super 8?  Those are good flicks.  

 

And let me throw this at you:  Lawrence Kasdan far, far, far, FAR > than Kurzman and Orcci.  Lucas with Kasdan got us the Empire Strikes Back.  Lucas with Rick McCullum got us the prequels.  Kurzman and Orcci are Abrams' Rick McCullum.  Together they get us Star Trek Into Darkenss.  We'll see what Abrams and Kasdan get us.

I never watched Felicity, Alias, or Lost, but Ive seen enough at the box office of Abrams...not impressed with his filmography.  Im not going to invest time into it, but maybe he's better suited for tv?

 

Oh, and I haven't seen this yet:

maybe he's better suited for comedy? Wait...no...remembering comedy "bits" from Super 8....

 

 

Kasdan?  His last well-remembered film was The Bodyguard...in 1992.  Yeah, he helped make Raiders of the Lost Ark and Empire work, but beyond that...pee-yew.  So im not sure what a mediocre writer/director past his prime plus a mediocre writer/director in his prime gets us yet...but as always, Im going to curb my enthusiam.

Of course there's the rumor going around that Luke's blind now.

What?  Haven't heard that one yet.  Does everyone have to be mangled in some way to show the passage of time?

I don't know...I kinda like the "Blind Master" angle. It'd be cool to see Luke stretching-out with his feelings, as Obi-Wan taught him to all those years ago, to fend-off attackers. "Your eyes can deceive you, don't trust them."

That would be counter-intuitive for the series at this point....MOAR LIGHTSABERS!

Bwaaahhh Ha HA HA HA! 

 

BS, featofstrenght!  You know you couldn't wait to get your hands on those Episode I toys, too.  I'll bet that's you in the picture front and center in your Obi Wan robe  @smilepunch@

 

I will say without shame that I was late for my morning college class because I had to make a quick Target run the morning that stuff was released.  Of course the movie itself was a let down and there's not a single one of those figures that's not readily available today on ebay for a low, low price, but how was I to know.  Heck the only reason I hold onto those figures today is for that little bit of 1999 nostalgia.  

 

Great picture and good memories!  

 

133 days til Episode VII ! @duel@@

Yeah, I was there too.  But my mom had to take me...because I was too young to drive. @nana@

 

Just more caution to the wind.  My broker told me that Commtech chip technologies were the wave of the future.

 

The "good memories" of Phantom Menace will never die...as long as there are crappy flea market dealers that overprice/overspeculate on everything that has SW on it.  Brace yourselves on another price jump on plastic facial tissue box covers with the podrace scene.

 

Actually, Im kinda worried and curious about the amount of product we can expect based on the sad condition of SW in the toy isle now, the s****y economy, and the downsizing/price gouging on vehicles.  We'll never see anything like the PM influx again.

You mean like the antique store in my town where you can find a loose POTF 2 Darth Vader with no weapons, no cape and a cat-chewed hand with a $12 price tag on it?  

 

But it's Star Wars.  It must be valuable!!

 

We'll see plenty of Ep 7 product.  It just remains to be see what kind and how much it will cost.  I have a feeling we'll be seeing $13 price tags on the articulated 3 3/4" stuff.  If I get anything, I may actually go with the 5 poa stuff, provided the sculpts are decent.  Most all of my SW stuff is 5-6 poa anyway.

Ugh, Gregg Grunberg is in EVERYTHING Abrams does.  It's the way Hollywood works though. Abrams ain't the only director that throws work to close friends.

 

Old Ackbar?  At least he's showing his age, unlike Chewbacca who doesn't appear to have a grey hair yet...

 

****EDIT****Never mind my Luke link.  It's a photoshop job.  Darn geeks with too much free time pulled the wool over me on that one!

How Star Wars Will Connect Return Of The Jedi To The Force Awakens

 

http://jediinsider.c...46&itemid=16582

 

Emperor Palpatine’s twenty-year reign of terror came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire’s Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover  that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before!
