Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

You kinda lost me by trying to suggest that The Matrix is a great movie :lol: but as this thread proves, everyone likes different things 8) 2) The film-making has to be admired.... filming in the snow is crazy difficult and to then 'do' special effects as well in the same environment as well as in ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

Nice set of Chirpas especially the Meccano and Clippers. Finally completed my Molded Face Luke Jedi today and ticked off another 2018 goal for me. I got him in two instalments - initially a regular Taiwan Luke and snap cape but with incorrectly paired blue HK saber. So I donated the blue saber to hi...

Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 30 LAUNCHED

Just like Taffius I’ve been slowly catching up on the past episodes of the Vintage Rebellion Podcast and have just finished listening to episode 30. Gotta say that this has been my favourite episode to date and it contains two of the most fascinating interviews I’ve listened to. The Lili Ledy interv...

Re: Imperial Blaster Colour Question

Referring to your Boba Fett with blue blaster statement Tantive XI say Boba Fett comes equipped with a blue imperial blaster, though the pics show him with a blue black in hand. I would be interested to know if their statement is a mistake or whether there is evidence that one particular variant was...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Bespin looks great and what happens there is great. Personally I'm not such a fan of Hoth. I think Hamil is bad in that part of the film... and I have to say the Yoda training is a bit boring. I remember being bored as a kid, and just wanting to get back to Han, Chewey and Leia. Though I like the l...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

ESB is beautifully shot and, particularly with the carbon freeze scenes, beautifully lit. The Hoth scenes are stunning and the model work integrates so well into the live action. I can completely believe in Dagobah - to say it's studio-bound it looks phenomenal; I remember the first time I rewatche...

Wet wipes. Even been known to remove stubborn marks and some factory paint marks if you’re persistent but careful.

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Whilst ESB is my least favourite of the OT, I simply can't fault it, the only reason it is my least favourite is because I like the other two more :D. Yes agree with the above statement (even if it doesn’t seem like it) - what I’ve tried to do in this thread is highlight the sections in Empire that...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

Once the universe was established in the first film, ESB was able to have a more complex narrative. Also, some say that Kurshner was a superior actor/character director, allowing for some fantastic exchanges between Harrison Ford & Carrie Fisher. You’re right. Some of the most humorous and quot...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

ROTJ all the way for me, it's the grand conclusion to an epic trilogy, and what a way to finish it. But I agree with the comment above about Star Wars somehow being my favourite too? :lol: it's a weird thing, ROTJ is my my most enjoyable film to watch, but SW goes back a long way for me as it has m...

Re: Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

It's just epic and has everything, great battle scenes, huge plot twist, romance oh and AT-AT's! I actually prefer A New Hope but think ESB is a better film, if that makes any sence? :? The last hour of ESB is probably the best 60 minutes of Star Wars their will ever be IMO. I totally agree that th...

Re: First 12 valuation

Near mint loose prices are as follows approx: R2 = £40 Chewbacca = £16 Leia = £100 Luke = £70 Han = £25 Ben = £30 DV = £30 Jawa = £35 Tusken Raider = £25 DSC = £25 C3PO = £30 Stormtrooper = £30 So around £450 So IMO a first 12 at £245 is a good price if all the weapons are original and the figures i...

I’d be interested in the Han Trenchcoat and maybe 4LOM depending on price. Jay

Why do most SW fans say ESB is the best film in the OT?

I’ve often wondered why so many Star Wars fans name The Empire Strikes Back as their favourite film of the original trilogy. Don’t get me wrong. I love ESB but it is my least favourite of the 3 movies. What I wanted to do with this post was to set out what makes the original Star Wars my favourite o...
