I don't know if you are old enough to remember but there was a fair amount of grumbling about watto being a racist stereotype of a Jewish merchant when the movie came out.

But sorry if mocking that offended you

I think Watto is supposed to be a Jew. The Sand People are the Arabs.

It's on Amazon for $88 right now.

Anyone else a nerd like me and go get toys at midnight? About 20-30 people showed up at the Toys R Us in College Station. Only one dressed as a Jedi, though.

Pretty sure I agree with you. I'm not Jewish, but much more sympathetic to Jewish peoples than strangely a lot of folks, but I don't see anything wrong with Watto being portrayed that way.

Good interview with Anthony Daniels.

This part was funny.

quote:
"The secrecy has been beyond ludicrous," he sighs. "For heaven's sake, it's a movie. When I got the script, it was typed in black on paper of the deepest red so you couldn't photocopy it. I got a hangover just reading it." He was censured by the studio recently for mentioning on Twitter a fellow actor from The Force Awakens.

"I said that I'd met so-and-so. An actor who plays a thing in the film. A character. Immediately I received a message from Disney: 'Remove the tweet! You're not allowed to say that!' Honestly. It's a kind of Kremlin attitude. Look, I know perfectly well not to tell you now what I'm giving you for a Christmas present because it would spoil the surprise. And these films are all about opening the box on Christmas Day."

$570. Target has a 90 day return window. I plan on keeping exactly one for myself and either returning or reselling the others if there is a rush on them.

Target has the new X-Wing game core set available today. I know I keep beating this drum, but if you're a Star Wars fan, you should check this out. I'm a huge nerd but not a wargamer, and picked this up immediately. The expansions are all great, and the game is incredibly well supported by Fantasy Flight.

Oh, and FFG's preview is here, which explains some of the basics of how the game is played.

Good to see that all vary in size.

I still contend that the clone wars evolved in Lucas's mind over the years. And that the clone wars old Ben was talking about were not the same ones that we had in the latter works.

I believe that in 1977, the clone wars was a war fought by the republic against clones and not a war fought by the clones for the republic.

Better check availability online.

In just the past hour, the B/CS Best Buy went from "Pick up today" to "Pick up in 3-5 days." That's what I get for procrastinating.

There's a lot to support that, as the early EU discussed it in exactly such a way.

So looking at sold item on ebay

The target bb8 is going for 239 high with most around 160

The x wing is selling between 115 and 120

The falcon is selling between
150 and 200

So I might make 200 or so after listing fees if I sell them.

I will hold off for a while.

Sweet. I was sure I would be called an idiot for thinking that

I always thought the same thing about the Clone Wars until the prequel trilogy.
Brian Earl Spilner

Honestly I think Lucas had put zero thought into what the backstory was on the Clone Wars in 77. It was a throwaway line to show that he and Anakin had a history, and Clone Wars sounds cool.
Duncan Idaho
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I'd agree and I would add the same could be said for the "no, there is another " line. If Luke and Liea were twins at that point Ben wouldnt have said that.

Anybody reading Aftermath???

I got it around 11:00 last night on my nook. Only had time to read 20 pages or so. I'm hoping the overall story will be worthwhile, but I'm not really digging the authors writing style so far. Maybe it's just me, but he has a very distracting use of comas and hyphens... disrupts my reading.



PS: There is definitely something going on with Rey and that staff. The trailers, set photos, posters... most shots are of her holding that thing. All very deliberate IMO.

I haven't gotten it yet, but from what I have been reading about Aftermath is that there are a couple of.... surprises (one mention) towards the end of the book. I think you will know what I am talking about when you read it from what I have read when people post about it.

Yeah, I'm counting on some good stuff. I have faith that the powers that be have a very specific and good direction for the "Aftermath Trilogy". I expect them to bridge the gap between Ep VI and VII in a cool way... but I'm just not digging the authors writing style.
