Went by Wal-Mart and wanted to buy the new X-wing LEGO set... $79!

Decided not to as I could already envision how that conversation with my wife was going to go.

I feel like they are holding out on us. Come on, not even a new TV spot this month?

There must be a tidal wave of marketing that they're still holding back, right?

Seems like they're doing a better job of keeping this under wraps than usual. I haven't seen any whispers anywhere regarding the new trailer.

LOL... they can pretty much do whatever they want at this point.


New Trailer on Youtube:
*black screen*
*fade in Lucasfilm logo*
*fade in text "No Trailer for you*
*fade in text "We know, but screw you, we'll still see you in December!"*
*fade out*

I'm expecting to be bombarded with commercials for the film, toys, books, and comics in the coming months until it comes out. It will be like DIsney/Lucasfilm opening the floodgates.....

Trust me, I'll be there for Battlefront, but that gets easier to negotiate when I haven't dropped $80 on a LEGO set.

Time to burn the franchise down?

Hayden Christensen rumored to be in episode 8

Only semi-credible info I could find on the trailer, via a post in TheForce.net forums...

https://www.facebook.com/FullOfSith/posts/532017766956810

If so, that coincides roughly with a date I've been mentioning for a while now: October 16 - the same day Bridge of Spies of hits theaters, which is a project from DreamWorks, who currently has a distribution deal with - you guessed it - Disney. That, and Spielberg, Hanks, and Star Wars just kind of seem to go together. So, my guess would be an online trailer release on Thursday, October 15, set to coincide with pre-sale ticket announcement officially confirming that tickets will sale go on the Monday the 19th.

would not be surprised if they tie it to season 2 of Rebels (Oct 14 I think). May put it on ABC like they did last time? No idea, just throwing it out there.

All of the TFA LEGO sets are ridiculously overpriced. But I still dropped $150 on the Falcon with a new radar dish.

Didn't know Rebels was debuting then as well. For me, that all but solidifies the trailer debuting at some point during the second half of that week then.

I'm just happy I had the self control to decide that a new radar dish was not enough to get me to buy a 2nd Lego Falcon.

The X-Wing and TIE Fighters I got are sick though.

Damn y'all are pathetic. I mean sure, I'll buy the lego sets, but those are for my kids man, I mean really.. come on....really.

Same here. I mean, I'll probably have kids some day.

Seeing Hayden Christensen coming back as Vader could be awesome... especially if we get to see him with the mask off at some point. I'm not one who goes looking for irony or symbolism... but considering how this guy was butchered in the Ep. II & III by his director, script, and public, it would almost be fitting to see him all messed up on screen again. The broken hero. Would also be nice to see him redeemed by actually contributing in a positive way to a really good Star Wars flick.

But I'm in the "not likely" camp right now.


**** this noise.

Vader peaked as a character in empire. He became a ***** in jedi and his "creation " story as told in the prequels absolutely destroyed the character.

He went from being a scary dark agent of fear to a great villain to a little ***** that I was happy to see die.

Ep 1 - who is this kid? God I wish he would get killed.
Ep2 - who is this whiny little biatch? God I wish he would get killed.
Ep3 - my god what a baby. Nut Up And Go FIND A New Piece Of ass. God I wish he would die.
Ep4 - who is this scary dude?. Where did he come from? I would live to see some movies about him.
Ep5 - this dude is a bad ass, they should keep him around.
Ep 6- I guess the emperor let him keep his ovaries, since he is more emotional than a woman going through the change. Oh good! He died.
Just want to call bull**** on your Retrun of the Jedi take.

The best thing about ROTJ was that it set us up for the Battle for Endor.

Battle of Endor was probably the best thing to happen in ROTJ besides Vader's redemption saving Luke ending the reign of the Emperor.

I think bringing him back as a ghost or "flashback" to a pre-Vader Anakin could work. Haven't heard anything about James Earl Jones so I just don't see them bringing back Vader.

Imagine force ghost Anakin/Hayden talking to Luke and Rey/Finn is like "WTF? This guy has lost it!" Continuing the old crazy hermit shtick from ANH.

Did Billy Dee Williams draw this poster? He's on it TWICE and he's billed above Anthony Daniels

Looks like the part where he was swinging off the barge and the artist decided to cover the rope with the lightsaber

I want to say that the change to green was done after all the promotional stuff was done, and because Lucas wanted Luke to have a different color that distinguished him from his father's and Kenobi's. I'm not entirely sure that I have the reasoning correct though.

I think the color change had as much to do with the blue saber being washed out on the backdrop of all the Tatooine action sequences.

Yeah about the only thing that could cluster that poster up more is if Benjamin Knox got involved.
