Thirty Helens agree.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2019 - 09:41 PM)

People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Wouldn't pillow fights be like slapping each other with meat?

@  unluckiness : (20 February 2019 - 11:54 PM)

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Feathertron?

@  MEDdMI : (20 February 2019 - 08:34 AM)

@Penn Megadown, maybe?

Who gives the orders in cyberwarfare?

@  Pennpenn : (20 February 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I wonder what Megatron would end up in that context?

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 08:27 PM)

First thought: I guess the title refers to Luke or Rey

Second thought: What about Finn?

Third thought: What if they start a new force tradition for the good guys?

Fourth thought: "Jedi" is also plural. Luke, Rey, Finn, and Kylo may, as a group, be "The Last Jedi".

Or it could just be that Luke is the last official Jedi.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

So this is Episode 8, which comes out this December, right? The movie timeline is already starting to get fuzzy for me, with everyone talking about Rogue One because it made a billion dollars, about Han Solo because casting is underway, about Episode 9 because they have to figure out Leia, about the next anthology movie.... it's hard to keep up.  

 

From the title, I thought maybe this was the rumored movie with Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan between Episode III and IV...

Good title.  I imagine this is a reference to Luke.  Since this movie will likely be mostly about him (and others interactions or actions because of him.

 

I do wonder if his teachings will lead to a different order, neither Jedi or Sith.

I like it.  I'm not sure I like where my imagination is going with it, but I like it.
 
Was it confirmed that Finn had no connection to the Force? I always assume it'd be like Leia or Luke - not there until specifically trained. 
 
So I think we can assume that "The Last Jedi" is probably Luke, as he's the only one around at this point who specifically claimed the Jedi title.  I wonder what that means for Rey - will she be something else? Likewise for Ren, who I'm still pretty sure will be redeemed (it's Star Wars: Redemption & Family are what it does).

EDIT: Spoiler space? What spoiler space. *Jedi handwave* There was no spoiler space here. You never saw spoiler space. Nope. Not at all. You may go about your business. Move along.

We're two weeks out from the Super Bowl. I'm betting we get a teaser trailer there and then I'll see a full trailer in person this April at Celebration.

 

Also, like others have said, you must remember that Jedi is a plurale tantum, meaning that it is a plural noun as well as a singular. "One Jedi, many Jedi." So it could be referencing the students at the school, it could refer to Luke, to Rey, to Luke and Rey, or even to the Jedi in a Holocron that Luke is learning from. It could literally be anyone at anytime who was a Jedi.

There's a part of me that wonderes whether the name needed to be changed after Fisher's death - but the fact that Jedi can be plural would discount that anyway.

It's been said that the name of the movie was known way back during the first draft of the movie's script.

Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

 

It could be as Marduk speculated (again why the spoilers for something unconfirmed) and Rey follows her own path forward. We have ideas that other force traditions are in the galaxy. Zeb's people believing in the Ashla and the Bogan, Bendu himself, The Nightsisters, there's nothing stating that Rey has to follow the Jedi path. As far as official canon goes the Jedi are still the stand offish warrior trained monks and nothing in the current canon to my knowledge had Luke skew away from that philosophy. As far as we know Luke had no relationships like his Legends canon version did. If Anything Luke is the last Jedi so that Rey can restore the light without being held by the boundaries of the dogmatic ways of the Jedi and may indeed take his experience as the last Jedi to push her away from what he did.

And the last wampa roars with its arm-stump all calloused

On an island in an ocean though he's looking rather wry

Rey will stand off'ring saber to Luke the last Jedi

Wouldn't it be Last of the Jedi if more than one? I mean Yoda's wording in episode 6. Plus we've heard cases like "the Jedi", "a Jedi". Jedi alone doesn't mean multiple.

I will be kind of disappointed if Finn doesn't have latent force talent too. I liked the idea that his 'Force Awakening' is what broke the First Orders mental conditioning.

Good title. Not grest, but mysterious and intriguing. Please be good! :)

While anything is possible, I think Finn was always a red herring when it comes to Force sensitivity. I think it's just as powerful that he's a good guy by nature, who cast off the FO's training when he realized it was wrong. Not everyone in Star Wars that does something hard needs to have been helped by hidden Force abilities.

I think the title refers to Luke as the last Jedi Knight/Master, Rey will be his Padwan learner. As for Flin, I think he'll awaken from his coma in this film and evenly join Chew & Rey as the owners of the Falcon but time will tell. I expect Luke has been in deep mediation in regards to the disaster that bought about the destruction of his order and this film will likely see Rey learning the ways of a jedi and maybe play out a bit like Empire Strikes Back, where the First Order with Ren and Stoke come seeking revenge for the destruction of Star Killer Base, you can bet the Rebels would of changed bases after their celeberation of the destruction of Star Killer base because the First order are likely to come seeking revenge, that's pretty much I thoughts at the moment, I will see this film in cinemas on my Birthday, next January, just as I saw Rouge One on my birthday just gone.
