Kids' interests have changed too much. We (old men) are the only people buying action figures en masse (not to mention comic books) these days.

100% this. ask most 10 year olds what they want for their bday. I bet it will be electronic / video game related.

Or at best...Lego.

I never read Bloodline but I think in TFA there was some hints that Leia was seen as a bit of a troublemaker in some way no? Why am I think that...

I think no one replied...yet! Now that the spark has lit the fire...I think with more "decisive strikes" by the small group lead by a new Jedi the Rebellion will grow. That's right...rebellion! :)

I guess if you really think on it you might feel that at least Kylo is doing it for less "base" reasons than money. But I think that my gut says Kylo is potentially more driven to lash out at the world whereas DJ might actually do good things if they paid well. He's not motivated, as far as we can tell, by anything dark or sinister but rather by what he thinks are practical considerations for his own personal gain.

He's not a wonderful human being by any stretch of the imagination however.

I think he could be back of course, perhaps as someone they use to get to the right people to buy new ships from?

Saw it again last night (regular...I'm going to have to get to an IMAX screening before it is gone!).

Still really really like it. Was worried the fact I last saw it with my kids might have had an undue influence on me!

I was actually impressed by how they handled Rey/Luke. How subtle it actually was. I realized I had assumed Luke sensed Rey at the end of TFA. And so much of his discovery of her powers went over my head! He just sees her as an envoy of Leia until she goes to the tree on her own and even then he doesn't really know how much power she contains. I also think Luke works in the context of his character just fine. I think he was perhaps more scarred by his experiences than we all realized. It was pretty heavy what he went through, a lot of responsibility and sense of duty was dumped on him and...he started to succumb since he is human and his failure with Ben/Kylo really broke him (he was indecisive at precisely the wrong time and it cost him his nephew and all his other students (except those that left with Kylo).

My least favorite section remains the Canto Bight stuff. It just feels like it wasn't pushed as far as it could have been towards something more "realistic" rather than caricatured and that it got dumbed-down for kids for no good reason...kids would have been cool with it if it had been less Disney-romp-esque I think and cooler overall, darker in some ways.

I saw these in Quebec before xmas at at least one TRU. But they sold through since.

Damn, missed this one. Was really looking for this. Where did you get it?

I actually didn't buy it! I almost did but the price just wouldn't let me...plus 5POA and I know they are going to do SA soonish so...but I will post in provincials about where I remembered seeing it (but I've been back to both recently and did not see any left!)

I've been told there is a case pack that includes the pilot but NOT the other 2 that we are all expecting. Found this out from someone on rebelscum.com

Ok, I was going to order it online but thought I could just pick it up for about the same price if they were at Walmart, figured they'd be discounted.

Has anyone found TLJ Visual Dictionary at Walmart or anything yet? I'm about to head to Ontario and will make a stop to grab one if so! Thanks!
