    Bandai DX VF-31

    Don’t worry, lads, it’s back up for sale... for ¥71,500. By Grabthar’s Hammer, what a gouging. https://www.nippon-yasan.com/22661-macross-delta-dx-chogokin-vf-31a-kairos-regular-limited-edition.html
  2. Still haven’t seen any of ‘em, so I can’t say. As for Chekhov being on a USN ship - without it, we never would’ve gotten “Nu-klee-aar... WESSELS!” Comedy gold.
  3. She volunteered to go to the future - she literally jumped at the chance - and said she had “no one for (her) here,” so there’s a reasonable chance she had no children in the normal timeline.

    That’s not a Mad Cat. It’s a Timber Wolf.
  5. Picked up a grail of mine. I’ve always liked this jet - it’s like an F-16 and an F-18 went and had a baby. Not too many were made, and none will be made again. By Hobby Master.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Might have been an air bubble that formed during the casting process. I feel bad for you, crap luck, sir.
  7. I like most all of them, for different reasons. The “Saga” episodes are the adventures of a blue and white astromech droid, and the meatbags and other droids who are along for the ride. These adventures, like any saga, are entertaining, hit you over the head with big, blunt Important Lessons, and grow more exaggerated with the telling. Rogue One, Solo, the Clone Wars, and so on shine a light on parts of the galaxy far, far away we’ve never seen before. Since they’re canon, I value them highly because they give me my best chance at seeing how that universe’s creator sees those things, how they interact with the other things we have already seen. It’s fascinating. Finally, this is all I’ll say: Luke was a Jedi. Luke was a Skywalker. Luke was a Legend. He was also mortal, and it wasn’t the first time he screwed up. Hell, Yoda allowed the Sith to rise. Windu put his faith wrong. Obi Wan was just too passive where Anakin was concerned. Jedi, whether padawan, Knight, or Master, fail. I’d like to know what made Luke fall to despair earlier on, so that he was so weary and hopeless that the same man who saved the soul of the second most evil man in the galaxy would think killing a young apprentice in his sleep a good idea. You see, my main problem with the sequels is they started too many years later. Too much happened between Last Jedi and New Hope. Although, now I think about it, Luke saved that soul AFTER cutting off his hand and driving him to the ground a hair’s breadth from destruction.
  8. There’s this, too: https://m.gamestop.com/product/collectibles/toys/star-wars-the-black-series-hyperreal-episode-v-8-inch-scale-darth-vader-action-figure/173322?utm_campaign=20190413_starwarscollectibles&utm_source=sfmc&utm_medium=email&utm_content=btn-vader&utm_term=20190413_2488&kxconfid=tbxx5hfqc
  9. Not gonna lie, I heard the official title and thought: “that sounds like Luke is getting a Viagra.” Then I saw the trailer immediately afterwards and... well... that black screen with the heavy breathing... This movie may be tainted to me through no fault of its own. And what if it’s Ben that’s the rising Skywalker?
