  1. Pre-ordered. Over half a year to wait.
  2. Sounds like a strong case of "the truth hurts." I really don't want to see this movie in the theater, but I probably will because it's Star Wars. I'm just afraid I'll burst out laughing at something unintentionally funny and get pelted with popcorn by superfans. I really wanted to laugh at the end of Revenge of the Sith but I squelched it.
  3. This. It's the only 1/60 VF I'm going to shell out for.
  4. Ouch. This one hurts. I loved Crying Freeman & Mad Bull. His stories were always insane in the best way.
  5. That Legioss is amazing. They knocked it out of the park. It's got perfect proportions and the legs are nice and compact in fighter mode! Day 1 pre-order for me barring some financial crisis. I was going to skip the Bikes (I like my Beagle just fine) but I almost want to buy one now to go with the Legioss.
  6. Strongly agree. And strongly agree. Be ready for a forced Rey/Poe romance in the next movie though. As gross as that would be. Yuck.
  7. My prediction is that since JJ Abrams is a total hack, he's going to undo all the good stuff that Rian Johnson did in TLJ.
  8. So what's with the clip on the back of the Legioss's forearm? Is that where the Tread attaches?
  9. Heard this twice now. What does it mean?
  10. Skipping the VE-1 since I have the original. I need a VT though...

    VF-2JA would be amazing!

    Got the Silvie Gena. The thing is slightly fiddly but nice looking. Am I doing something wrong or does the backpack not fully close in fighter mode?
  13. Multiple sets were revealed today. They include a CLASSIC SPACE BATTLE PACK with NEW CLASSIC HELMETS. I crap you not. The set is Benny's Space Team. Another set has a classic style space ship with the original transparent yellow windscreen. (Technically a slightly different mold but who cares). https://www.brothers-brick.com/2018/11/20/nineteen-new-sets-revealed-from-the-lego-movie-2-news/
  14. Oh dang, new wedge slopes. Really cool!
  15. Which are those? I'm excited about the transparent light green windscreens on the pink mech. Although regular old dark transparent green would be more useful to me.
  16. Got mine last night but haven't started it. Glad to hear it's enjoyable! I'm always afraid I'll watch one of these old shows and find out it's not great. I'll probably slog through it regardless.
  17. I want to see a backpack that slides forward in Gerwalk mode. And maybe a longer whatever-it's-called that sticks out the bottom of the backpack.
  18. I think you just have to look at it for what it is: data analyses of Rian Johnson's feed. They did find that over half of the negative comments were from either trolls, bots, or political accounts that often tweeted about Trump. I think only 10% of negative comments were from Russians, but still that's a surprisingly high number.
  19. Is it wrong that I want that unpainted black & white prototype color scheme more than any actual scheme from the show?
  20. Like...? That sort of social criticism is a defining characteristic of the SJW movement, isn't it? No. Those things have literally nothing to do with "the SJW movement." No mention of either on wikipedia. Link me some evidence to the contrary if you have any. God, I hope at least we can all agree that child slavery is bad. But this is a smoke screen. Link me to a popular review or article where the main complaint of "SJW-iness" is the couple of seconds out of the whole movie where they show a sad animal or a child slave. Part one is over an hour so no, he does not "sum it up." Bloviates maybe. You could sum up for him though.
  21. Nobody has ever, ever, EVER been able to explain to me what "SJW" means in terms of the Star Wars movies. I've asked again and again and...crickets. It's because the real answer is "they put women and minorities in the movie." But you can't say that, because that proves the "SJW"s right. I've heard and made many valid complaints about these movies. I think the first one was a pointless retread, and the second one was a mess. Honestly, the best thing about these movies is the diverse cast, and how much it pisses off the white supremacist/woman hating crowd.
