Yeah ... but this is the first time in the franchise they've opened right before Christmas ... which will push the rush to market way ahead of the release ... a good six weeks plus before the movie hits the screen.

I can see it now... the toy called "Darth Vader (Luke Skywalker)" with a description on the back saying Luke has chosen to walk the path of his father...

The big twist at the end totally ruined by marketing!



PS: That totally isn't a rumor for all you spoiler-phobes... I just made it up so chill! ;-)

It's not that hard to ignore toys. I, however, will make the sacrifice for my kid by purchasing him lots of new Star Wars toys, reading the boxes to check for inappropriate content, and opening them before wrapping them up to check functionality and avoid giving him a broken gift on Christmas morning.

Commissioned this from my roommate who is an artist. Work in progress, obviously. Love how it's turning out.

Personally I'm glad they threw out at least one book. I can't remember the book or the character's full name, but one of the authors had the gall to make a character a more powerful force user than Luke Skywalker, son of ****ing virgin birth Anakin. His name was Kyle something. I read it and thought GTFO with that trash.
Kyp Durron?

There were some things in the expanded Universe I really didn't like...

1. Chewbacca gets killed by a moon crashing into the planet he's while saving Jaina Solo
2. "The Current" and using it to conceal yourself
3. Ssi-ruuk
4. The Children of the Jedi / Dark Sabre through to the Crystal Star with the cockroach king and Jedi Jabba (terrible)
5. Dark Nest was just weird - oh well
6. The New Jedi Order stuff was ... okay ... with the yuuzhan vong

Decent stuff:
1. Black fleet crisis (but again I think this is where the "current" stuff was introduced that I didn't like)
2. Legacy of the Force and Mara Jade dying, and Jacen going dark, etc.

I did really like:
1. Thrawn and the Ghnori - anything Timothy Zahn should be kept IMO
2. The Jedi Academy stuff
3. The Corellian Trilogy
4. The X-Wing Series


I am actually about to start Book #3 of the Fate of the Jedi (Abyss), but I don't know if it's worth finishing now...

Spreadsheet, I think the previous poster is talking about Kyle Kataan or whatever from Jedi Academy. Or was that just video games?

Also, I'm pretty sure that Chewbacca thing didn't stick, did it? I didn't read those books but did some wiki skimming a few years ago...thought I remember that either getting scrapped before print bc of fear of fan backlash or they brought him back?

Best of the EU (IMHO)

Anything Timothy Zahn wrote
Tales of the .... anthologies - particularly Tales of the Bounty Hunters and Tales of the Mos Eisley Cantina, followed closely by Tales of Jabba's Palace
Shatterpoint - Mace Windu's Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now
Darth Plagueis - might have been last novel released before the Disney announcement, and it was awesome, really wrapped things up nicely.
Labyrinth of Fear - terrible title, but shows the Jedi hunting Sidious, without realizing who he is obviously, right before ROTS
Dark Rendezvous - great Yoda/Dooku back story
Rogue Squadron - zero Jedi, great characters, Wedge Antilles at his finest

99% sure he's talking about Kyp Durron in the Kevin J. Anderson Jedi Academy trilogy. I don't remember Kyle Katarn being especially powerful.


All the books that featured the kids pre-NJO were bad. Agree that the Ssi-Ruuk was pretty lame. Crystal Star might be my least favorite book in the whole saga, but there were some real stinkers after they started cranking out books by the hundred. I hate not finishing books, but there were a few that were just so bad that I couldn't keep going. There was one that made me give up reading Star Wars altogether.

My top favorites were X-Wing, the Thrawn trilogy (that's Noghri, by the way), Shatterpoint, and from NJO I thought Traitor and The Unifying Force were really good books.

***SPOILERS***







Yes, Chewie did die in Vector Prime, the first book of the NJO/Yuuzhan Vong series. That incident drove one of the biggest multi-book subplots in the series, which was Han's grief/lashing out and Anakin's guilt.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I would give anything to see a X-Wing movie series.

This could be a sticky mess if it made the rounds in the media

It sounds like a bold type of music that hits listeners in the face

Edit: fail. I repeated a joke

I'm afraid I prematurely shot my wad, on what was supposed to be a dry run if you will, so I'm afraid I have something of a mess on my hands.

Having a character that is stronger in the force than Luke shouldn't be offensive. Luke is one of my favorite characters, and Kyp Durron one of my least favorite but not because he is stronger than Luke. He is incredibly arrogant in the novels. That's why I don't like him. People hate on the EU who have absolutely no clue.

I think that getting an X-Wing movie featuring Wedge in the vein of a WW2 fighter pilot flick is not outside the realm of possibility.
