Re: Hayden C

He seems like a top guy in real life. I think he struggled slightly in AotC, but there are not many young actors who confronted with that role wouldn't have to be honest. But he did his best, and I am convinced that some of the problems he had were with the dialogue he was forced to spout (a common ...

Re: POSITIVE ONLY - Movie/scene list

Star Wars: Binary sunset: everything about this scene just works, it gives me a chill up the spine every time I see it. Anyone who has ever felt frustration and longed for something else can identify with Luke here. Mos Eisley Cantina: this is just a fun scene, all the creatures around, Han is cool...

Re: Star Wars Fatigue

You don't lose your true fan status because someone says your not a true fan, you know your a fan and that's all that matters. Other people's opinions of me in truth are not important to me, I have my own principles, self esteem and values. Try to live a life that does not impact anyone else throug...

Re: George's vision for episodes 7-9

Hmmm. Looks like he was diving back into his "keep that for later" writing box. The "Whills" were part of one of George's early drafts for Star Wars. In the early stages he had it named something like "Journal of the Whills" they were supposed to be a "little peopl...

Re: Why was Grand Moff Tarkin excluded from the original run?

I don't think there's much mystery. He was far too boring to make the cut of the first 21, and a doesn't appear in ESB or ROTJ so he couldn't be released in those waves. If POTF had carried on we would have seen him, but the line was axed before he made the list. Death Squad Commander was an odd ch...

Re: Why was Grand Moff Tarkin excluded from the original run?

looking at the original 12 figures all playing major roles or a somewhat decent role apart from the death squad commander. I use to think the DSC was just put in there at the last minute as Tarkins replacent when they couldnt do Tarkin himself as it does seem odd to have this imperial officer in th...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story Solo SPOILERS First Reactions

Reviews are a bit mixed. I have read it’s a bit safe / boring with a ‘linear’ storyline. Gotta say after the glowing reviews for TLJ, I’m quite relieved by that! If by ‘linear’ they mean the plot isn’t incredibly convoluted to the point of being nonsensical, then that might suit me down the the gro...

Re: 1983 Return of the Jedi Luke Jedi Knight Outfit figure

Personally I would wait. I think with a little patience you will find one in better condition for less money. and probably closer to home (IE: a seller in europe) which should reduce the cost of shipping too.

Re: 1983 Return of the Jedi Luke Jedi Knight Outfit figure

I'm thinking about purchasing a 1983 ROTJ Luke in Jedi Knight Outfit figure, but I don't know if that is a good decision, because of the figures condition. The card all by itself looks very good, with no dents or cracks. The only problem is the bubble - it's yellow, but everything about the figure ...

Re: Red bar R5D4

Such a shame about this kind of thing.

Makes you wonder how many people out there have been conned, and have absolutely no idea that the rare/ valuable item sitting in their display is not real.

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

If pushed I would probably say ESB is my favourite, but that doesn't mean I think the other two (yes there are only three Star Wars films) are inferior. All three are masterpieces, and very different. ESB has the best sabre fight IMO - not the most technical, but that old saying "less is more....
