The Vintage Collection (TVC) / Re: TVC - Jabba's sail Barge!!!!!

Yeah, bottom line is...I don't understand why they limited this to the US. Or why they wouldn't let the country they are literally attached to in on is in no way a clear way to determine whether there is demand or not.

Though I'd still have to give it some serious thought, if I knew it would be shipped to my home address and I wouldn't have to jump through hoops to get one I'd probably be at least going through my collection to see what I could jettison for cash to go towards it and make it impart a bit less on the family finances!

I have a few variations on my handle that I use but it's the same for here and there.

Hope these show up in Quebec soon before the sale ends!

it will be neat to see what happens. they are starting Haslab with one of the most extreme examples, other then a death star of course. Start near the top and work from their i guess.

I misread you at first and thought you were saying when they give us a Death Star, they should start with the top part first! Which got me thinking! They could make a DS play set modular! So you'd crowd fund one level at a time...would be less of a hit on the wallet in one shot and easier to ship in modules too! Risk being the latter floors don't get produced for any number of reasons. But could you imagine this thing building up level by level and perhaps towering at 7 feet or so??? You'd need a small room to house it not to mention a special stand to keep it from rolling over! If it was round of course! No way it could be close to scale however so maybe they'd go for a tower like the old Death Star Space Station Kenner toy.

Ah ha! I think I've figured out who you are on rebelscum! :)

No, not at all a simple purchase. I'm going to wait to see if it gets a regular release though for multiple reasons: money, space, difficulty in obtaining it from US but also...I think I'd be hesitant to take it out of the box dammit! I know I'd start to think, ok, what if eventually I don't want it or can't really afford to keep it and if I hadn't opened it I'd be getting double for it years down the road. A "reprint" edition would be something I'd think would be less likely to be the sought after version and therefore something I'd feel more comfortable using as a "really awesome theme-shelf" basically. I just hope it is max $500 Canadian! I mean, holy crap! I'm not sure I could justify a shelf approaching $1000! But if that odd BB-8 playlet is any indication, I can't see this being less than $650 at TRU if and when!

Commander - "Your orders are to infiltrate that gang, trooper!"

Trooper - "But, won't they recognize me as an agent of the Empire?"

Commander - "Here...ummm...put this on. My wife gave it to me last Order 66 Day. There. Now you'll fit right in!"

Trooper - "It is pretty sweet!"

Anyone know where we might expect to find the Battle on Crait pack if/when it comes to Canada?

Yeah I left shows I'm watching but that are not playing right now off my list:

Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead (but will probably stop watching soon)
Better Call Saul
The Americans
Stranger Things (thanks for the reminder!)

8. Super Girl -
9) Flash
10) DC Legends of Tomorrow

Forgot about these because as a family we're getting behind but yes, watch these too!

16) Star Wars Rebels - I have all of them PVR for this season and have not watched any of them yet - so not sure if it is any good.
Same for me! Sitting there waiting to be watched.

I'm going to give it a pretty big chance because the "miracle" of being able to pull it off entirely is somewhat doubtful. I think to be able to judge it properly we'll need to give ourselves time to get used to his interpretation of the character. I mean, its been 40 years of Harrison!

Peaky Blinders
Dirk Gently

The Good Place
Bob's Burgers
Schitt's Creek

« on: January 26, 2018, 06:02:23 PM »
I think I was assuming what you're saying JJ but now that I read that I realize that yes, it is true that Rey seemed to be his focus even such that he would "lie" to get to go to Starkiller base to help rescue her so...perhaps he wasn't as all in as we'd assumed because he participated in that. I mean, he's been unconscious since and when he wakes up he's stuck with the Resistance but his focus still seems to be Rey (even if it is easy to misread that he wants to go ONLY to make sure she doesn't come back to a trap). I think a line or two could have helped clear that up maybe instead of assuming the audience would remember he was a bit fuzzy on where he stood vis a vis anything but Rey. But I'll watch it again with this in mind, perhaps there were indications that I simply overlooked.

Those are good reasons! :) I figure the snowtroopers happened to have armor that could work well in that environment for "whatever" reason! Not because it was white but because it was perhaps dusty? Or maybe the FO just looked at photos of Crait and thought it was snow and sent in the wrong type of troopers?
