@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

Racism must be stopped. No matter the cost.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2019 - 07:49 AM)

Tine to stop buttering it up.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 July 2019 - 09:43 PM)

Well shucks.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 July 2019 - 08:14 PM)

The joke is a husk of its former self.

@  Paladin : (17 July 2019 - 01:15 PM)

Something something... corn bread?

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2019 - 07:21 AM)

Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

@  Paladin : (17 July 2019 - 06:24 AM)

by now I think this jokes' been creamed.

huh. suddenly the Squawk is popping.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

I hope R2-D2 gets to do a little more this time. "Old, decrepit Artoo" is the only part of the sequel trilogy I find depressing.

I wonder if this film will have any Prequel elements in it. Maybe it will, but I suspect it'll probably just be a returning location, or item. At most I suspect Hayden Christensen to show up as a Force Ghost.

 

Maybe I'm wrong and Jar-Jar will be in it. Perhaps they will manage to redeem him to audiences.

Its said by JJ that this movie is meant to tie up loose ends from the original and the prequels on top of the so called sequel saga. I think the prequel element will likely be the Emperor trying a grand scheme from beyond the grave, if he is truly dead that is and then Yoda appearing with Anakin, that like whatever prequel stuff be in this movie that or a fancy scene that does nothing to furier the plot of the film, then again, I doult they'll bring Jar-Jar in because its got to fit the story narative, unless Jar-Jar is revealed to be the Emperor's host body or something.

 

Personally, I never minded Jar-Jar that much, thou he was redeemed in the Clone Wars series, plus in Ep 2 where he accidenty set the republic on course for its destruction without knowing it.

I legit would love to see a Jar Jar story that goes into just what happened with him post-prequels. He helped unite the peoples of Naboo just to propel one of them to full-on galactic dictator for what seemed to be perfectly good reasons -- and then he's basically taken out of the narrative. Like, did Binks ever realize just what he did? Did the Galaxy pin the blame all on him? Would he have joined the Rebels in any way, or perhaps he'd just fall in line (if we're sticking to the too-relevant analogy of democracies becoming dictatorships....) There's a lot of story potential there.

 

 

Though I think at this rate, even 20 years after the fact, people still either just want him dead or to be revealed as Darth Plaguis or something. Meh...

A video I saw about Jar Jar post Ep3 that about a SW comic, he on Naboo but no longer in politics and I think he works on the street as a entertainer or something

 

I did a bit of reserach on Youtube and I got two videos about Jar Jar's fate, from legends and cannon:

Woman on horse back wearing what looks like modern day clothes if she got stuck on an island for a few weeks.

...Why is it so hard for Disney to get Star Wars visual language right? Boring aliens, the humans with chunks of head replaced with harddrives, this...

Looking forward to more unsold toys.


The OT has "modern" clothes. Aunt Beau wears a Jean jacket, Luke wears Levis, you see at least one guy wearing an off the shelf fishing hat, there is a whole group of guys wearing backflap ballcaps at the award ceremony.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

And pretty much most of the SDCC exclusives feature it in some form.

 

I DO like the texture on the torso, though I would have preferred some more significant tweaks to the helmet.  All said, I think it's more interesting than the standard FO Stormtrooper.  I wouldn't mind getting it in several variations.

"Sith Troopers" with the Ep III Clone visors coinciding with the Emperor's return sounds like it could be promising, especially if they're adamant about Kylo NOT being a Sith. (Dark side civil war! The nightmarish version of the Clone Wars we all imagined it to be! Execute First Order...) Though who knows, could just be more background troops to fill out toy shelves....

That bright shade of red seems like a poor design choice, though, given how often it's totally obscured all the little grooves and such, giving the impression it's just the normal trooper painted red.

I think there might be a First order civil war. Presumably Hux and some other people will stage a coup against Kylo Ren, and replace him with the resurrected Paplatine. And his first order will be to paint his new stormtroopers red.

When I saw the first pic I just assumed it was a FO Storm trooper in red. Then I noticed the helmet and figured that was the main difference. I had to really look close to notice how much the rest of the armor is really different too.

The tech details remind me a little of Luke's disguise from Shadows of the Empire.

-ZacWilliam, as someone said a little way back I wouldn't be too surprised to see a First Order Civil War...
