Re: Obi-Wan vs. Vader remastered

It's a type of scene I'd like to see in a new film with Vader, but it's pretty awful shoehorned into Star Wars. Completely different style with a shit ton of lense flare. I had to stop watching when they added dialogue from the prequels. Urgh!

Re: The Mandalorian Live Action TV Series

Why didn’t they show it in the live-stream? Offscreen footage is up on YouTube so you should try and watch it before it's pulled by Disney, though it could just be a marketing thing because they joked about people not videoing it in the panel. I actually watched the panel after seeing the leaked tr...

Re: The Mandalorian Live Action TV Series

That's more like it. Did anyone spot
IG-88!


This looks way better than the episode 9 trailer. I wasn't too interested in this and had forgotten that it had a panel at Celebration but it's the best thing that's been shown.

Plus Werner Herzog as an ex Imperial Officer is inspired casting. I'm hyped.

Re: New retroline.......

Interview with Hasbro from Celebration. They talk mostly about other modern stuff but there is a bit of retro line info in there.

It's a sticker in the card, so that's good. I think we will be seeing more figures at some point.

Re: EP IX Trailer

I'm a bit conflicted on this. I thought it was a good trailer, but again it leans heavily on nostalgia... which is what I want (!) but in a way I can't respect it. Also, the fact that JJ gave an interview the other day where he said that two years wasn't long enough to make the film because he was b...

Re: Episode 9...your personal feelings

I’m looking forward to it. I’ve completely separated the old stuff from the new stuff. The first three films have their own place and are very special to me. The rest of it is just a bit of fun. The new Disney stuff is hit and miss. I’m going into it with an open mind. You never know it might be FU...

Re: New retroline.......

I'm sure I've read somewhere that they have been resculpted. Someone was saying on some close up photos that you can tell they're new sculpts. Personally I'd love to see a Sandtrooper. That's a no brainer as it would be so easy to make, maybe they will even reissue the Dewback. I'm beginning to get ...

Re: New retroline.......

How many retro do they intend to release the first 21 perhaps not the whole 98 surely??? Well, you've got to presume these are going to sell out fairly quick. At $10 a pop it's not like they're going to price themselves out of the market which is what seems to have happened to the Jumbo figures. I ...

Re: New retroline.......

Tarkin looks off, but that's the point isn't it? All the old figures look off to some degree and that's adds to the charm of them. For Tarkin to actually look like Peter Cushing it wouldn't be right and it wouldn't fit in with the other vintage figures. I'm not too sure what to think about these. I ...

A spin-off film is crewing up at the moment so I'm guessing we will get another one in two years.

Re: So what did you think about Solo: A Star Wars Story ??? SPOILERS

I thought it was good, I enjoyed it more than Rogue One and TLJ. The characters worked, Chewey was great. The actors all did a good job and their chemistry worked. Still not convinced about the casting of Han, but he did his thing. The one part I really didn't like was Enfys Nest taking off her helm...

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

I'm with TC, Star Wars is the best of the OT. However, Empire is better directed, shot, and acted, but it's a continuation of characters set up in the first film. Star Wars does a colossal job of building a complete and convincing universe with believable characters in it. At the start you are watch...

Re: Haslab Khetanna

... It's kind of nuts that they're doing this preorder considering it's Hasbro, but then again how long have we waited for one of these. So it's about £400, and depending on how many they make, it would likely go up in value. If this all happens and the preorder works we might finally get a proper a...

Re: Han Solo movie: what do you think?

I'm kind of looking forward to it. Surprising as I wasn't at all hyped for TLJ (good job too). The new trilogy seems to be directionless and I don't really care for any of the new characters, so these anthology films are at least dealing with the OT hardware. I thought a Rogue One was ok, a bit mess...

I might come along if that's ok? I've not contributed much to the forum over the years and I've never met any of you guys, so I'll be the noob. Be good to chat about collecting etc. face to face.
