Online Shopping - Who's Got the Hot Items??? / Re: Target

Thanks for the info! So you mean that if you ordered 60 bucks worth the shipping would be 60? Or it stayed at around 40 no matter what you did? I know they have a 20 dollar off shipping thing with orders over a 100.

Corn Pops and SpaghettiO's? No SW items in that order? :)

Has anyone bought from the Target site? Which company did the shipping? How were duties? Packaging etc?

spoiler alert???? Are we about to witness the end of the era of the Force????

I'm on the fence. I could see them using the "ending of the Jedi" as fodder for future films where the Jedi are reborn, rediscovered, reimagined. So that the old feels new again maybe?

It's all our fault! Always waiting for those BOGHO sales and such instead of paying full price!!!

I don't think he's a good guy at all. But I could see someone like Kylo (Ben Skywalker-Solo) given his family history and lineage actually tinkering with the dark side in order to do the most massive move against the Force ever! In realizing that this conflict between light and dark will go on and on and on and billions upon billions will suffer and die, taking on the burden to get as close to the dark as you can (meaning having to actually go pretty dark in order to convince...and then have it forever dominate your destiny) and end it all would be a massive, taxing undertaking. You couldn't just say, yeah I'm a bad guy but spare this village, let the old man live and ok sure dad I'll come with you right after I complete my dark side training. So his goal might be to do something that would in the long run be better for the galaxy but in the short term he's got to be convincingly dark in order to infiltrate and end it once and for all...requiring massive personal sacrifice: his own happiness, life, family, friends etc.

...but I don't think I'm right, just a theory I toy with to see if it sticks when I watch the film. So far I feel it could but probably won't. Even though that scene where he speaks to "grandfather" is odd. I mean Anakin went back to the light right? Wouldn't he have been told this? So why speak to a helmet and try to get inspiration from this reformed dark lord? Who ended up being someone who "started" to take down the dark side by being close it...though he did not "finish" it, he only took down Palpatine...see what I'm saying?

Thumbs up JediPatrick! Like Darth McAdam that scene with Han/Kylo pretty much punches me in the gut every time.

And I like that take jj...hope you're right. I have my own theory about what is going on in that scene but mine is much more convoluted. Your take and my theory could still work together but I like your take on its own just fine!

but it really resonated for me as a parent...maybe because my own kids are entering that age where the outside the home influences of classmates etc are starting to play their part and I'm quickly losing any hope that I'll have much more say in their development from here on out!

Well Sinkie, I truly hope your kids don't take you out with their lightsabers. LOL

I hadn't thought of that!!!...death by a cheap plastic lightsabre held together with duct tape does not sound like a fun way to go!

Obi wan lifted his lightsaber and let himself be cut down which was cool but pretty passive agressive at the same time. Han tried to help his unstable son because he knew it was the only chance he had, risky as it was, and he paid the price...or perhaps as my pet theory goes...he helped Kylo move closer to his bigger picture goal that not even Snoke knows of!

Regardless, Han's death was poignant IMO. I'm sure some out there who are parents could still have problems with it but it really resonated for me as a parent...maybe because my own kids are entering that age where the outside the home influences of classmates etc are starting to play their part and I'm quickly losing any hope that I'll have much more say in their development from here on out! I think Ford played that scene to perfection. And Driver was suitably torn over it all as well. To each their own ultimately but I wonder what else people were expecting really from an old man passing the torch? Dying in a fire fight would have been too cliche IMO. Having him give Leia his word he'd do something for their son and then die trying? Pretty powerful if you ask me. Yes it means we won't get the Luke/Leia/Han reunion some were hoping for and that I get but it was pretty much worth it. And will make it all the more heartbreaking when we probably get Luke's reaction to the news eventually. My 2 cents!

(and if this were rebelscum's boards I'd be waiting for the uber-personal hate to begin...but we're all friends here, right?)

I'm good with it in theory. I'm a fan of TFA. If TLJ blows it out of the water I might be less enthused.

At the very least I think JJ gets that characters emoting, jumping into action and generally embodying their character goes a long way. And his stories rarely lack in the action department. There are also several moments in TFA that I find oddly pandering/brilliant at the same time. Rey's speeder going across the screen at twilight comes to mind.

I started to watch TFA again last night and found it funny that in the opening scroll Luke is referred to as "the last Jedi" and about forty minutes in Snoke refers to him in exactly the same way.
