Wampa Cave / HASCON
« on: August 11, 2017, 06:09:00 AM »
If you are wondering why Hasbro will not be selling their SDCC exclusives this August like they traditionally do - here is the reason:

HasCon is a forthcoming annual fan convention created by Hasbro to promote its various licensed properties, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Magic: The Gathering. It thus replaces the previous fan convention from Fun Publications, BotCon.[1] However, Fun Publications' G. I. Joe Convention continued to be held as of 2017. It was subsequently announced that the first HasCon is scheduled for September 810, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Meanwhile, Summer Hayes, LLC., which organizes My Little Pony Fair convention, has announced that their convention won't be held for 2017, and would collaborate with HasCon instead.[2]

Wampa Cave / Mark Hamill disliked his role in The Force Awakens
« on: August 11, 2017, 05:55:44 AM »
Earlier this week I found a video on the internet that showed several interviews of Mark Hamill put together showing that he thought everyone had a great role in the movie but himself and he also thought that the death scene for Han was not done the way he thought it should be done.
He thought Leia and Luke should have been involved.   He said that as they did the read through he kept waiting for his entrance and it never came.  I really like his idea of when he thought he should of came in. He said when Rey was in the forest fighting and the lightsaber was flying through the air - he thought he should of been the one to grab it and save the day.  He said he did not understand how Rey with no training was able to fight with the lightsaber when she had never been to Dagobah to train. Not that he should use that as a good example since he is a Dagobah School Drop out.    I am guessing we will figure this out in the next movie and we will see why she is so good with a lightsaber.   He also said that even though a movie makes a lot of money it does not mean it was a good movie.

Wampa Cave / Disney Droid Factory: NAME A DROID
« on: May 02, 2017, 03:23:25 PM »
My family went to Disney World on March break this year.   While there we Built (4) Build a Droids.    Please see attached.   They are Black R2 with Sombrero, White Mixed matched R2 with Star Wars baseball cap, Orange R2 with Mickey Mouse Fantastic Hat and Purple R5 with Star Wars baseball cap.

You are given letter sheets so you can assign a name to each of the Droids and enter it in the black box on the card back.   

If you have any Name ideas - please post them.

Wampa Cave / Little Star Wars Tidbit
« on: April 25, 2017, 07:09:01 AM »
What does The Forest Rangers have to do with Star Wars? The Forest Rangers was a Canadian Television series that ran from 1963 to 1965.  It was produced by CBC & ITC Entertainment.   It's claim to fame is that it was Canada's first television show produced in colour.

Wampa Cave / Gentle Giant Jumbo Figures - No longer ?
« on: March 30, 2017, 09:18:31 PM »
With Hasbro producing the 6" line with Vintage Card backs - I wonder if Gentle Giant will still be able to produce their Jumbo Retro Figures with Vintage Card backs.   Hasbro seems to be wanting to milk the Vintage card backs for all they are worth.   But as the Hasbro figures get bigger they may see the Gentle Giant Jumbo figures as competition for their own lines.  I guess it depends on how much GG is willing to pay for the rights to use Kenner Vintage Card backs.

Star Wars fans may want to watch the DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Raiders of the Lost Art episode.  It originally aired January 24, 2007.   In this episode the DC team travels back to 1967 and meets George Lucas.  We also learn where George gets the idea for one of his famous scene on the Death Star from the Star Wars a New Hope movie.    :artoo:

Scout Report / Rebel Scum Canada Find Reports
« on: December 23, 2016, 11:25:19 PM »
Just wondering if anyone finds the reports that are being shown on rebel scum's front page troublesome .   By the way full disclosure - I hardly go to rebel scum any more. 

Here is the latest one: ( and I am pretty sure there have been other Canadian finds hitting their front page.)

Hasbro: The Black Series Walmart 3 3/4-Inch Sergeant Jyn Erso & Imperial Death Trooper In Stock Online In Canada
Posted by Chad on December 22, 2016 at 08:11 PM CST | Forums
Walmart.ca currently has The Black Series Walmart Exclusive 3 3/4-inch Sergeant Jyn Erso and Imperial Death Trooper in stock!! Click the links to order yours before they sell out.

Personally, I think Chad should not be posting on the front page of rebel scum a link that states  "Click the links to orders yours before they sell out."  This makes it easy for people surfing the net such as scalpers to easily connect to the purchase page and purchase all the inventory.   

So next time you wonder why it's so hard to get Darth Raven or the Imperial Death Trooper or what ever the latest product everyone wants - just thank good old Chad for making you drive around to every store instead of just ordering it on line.

Off Topic / TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
« on: November 09, 2016, 05:41:01 AM »
If this thread gets too political please delete it.

PRESIDENT TRUMP

Depending on your perspective, you either woke and said  :sign0065: or you rejoiced  :party0007:.   Ether way it was a  :fight: .    So now that we know the winner, I was wondering:

 Is TRUMP a Rebel in Washington DC or is he an Emperor of a new Empire?

Star Wars Art / STAR WARS ART: RALPH MCQUARRIE

The book has now been reduced to $180 CDN - 40% off Regular price is $300.   Could go lower. On Amazon they refer to it as a limited edition.  If this is true - the price might go the other way.

Wampa Cave / JS WATCH COMPANY & ROGUE ONE
« on: May 20, 2016, 08:30:42 AM »
I just got this email from an Iceland Watch company and I thought you would all would like the Rogue One Reference.   The guy who runs the store is great and has a lot of stars visit him when they are in Iceland and they usually buy one of his watches and then he post them to people on his mailing list.   

Danish Hollywood Actor Mads Mikkelsen

Hannibal and James Bond Villain Mr. Mads Mikkelsen was recently in Iceland filming the Star Wars film Rogue One. He is the newest member in our Hall of Fame section, here he is posing with his new JS Watch on his wrist. 

His watch of choice was the Islandus 45 Year Anniversary Limited Edition, his watch is number 19 of 45 pieces made.

Off Topic / Happy Mother's Day
« on: May 08, 2016, 06:25:40 AM »
I just wanted to wish all the snowtroopers that are Mothers a Happy Mother's Day.

Are there any snowtroopers that are Mothers?   ???

I am guessing I should expand my wish to including the Mother's of SNOWTROOPERS.  Even the ones who threw out your child hood Star Wars toys.   :(

Happy Mother's Day.
