I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

So he was probably undecided up until any story work on ESB started.


I have heard that there was an interview at the time RETURN OF THE JEDI came out where George said that they had discussions going back and forth whether to confirm that Vader was his father or whether he was just messing with Luke's mind.

Well, "Vader" MEANS "father" in Dutch. Though it's pronounced a lot more like "father."


Actually, "Father' in German is 'Vater' rather than 'Vader'.




Ahem. ?Sorry.

Not that I don't think that morsel was planned from the beginning, but does George Lucas know that?



Nah. Just put IN before Vader and Sidious, that's how he got their names.

Invader.

Vader being Luke's father is just something he pulled out of his ass for Empire, it was never planned.

There was even a scene in an early draft of the script in which the ghost of Luke's father appears on Dagobah.

Just imagine how much better Star Wars would have been if Vader and Anakin were grizzled old men who fought each other while primitive Wookies flew X-Wings to blow up the Death Star.


Actually, that's kinda reminding me too much of Battlefield Earth. Never mind.

Roadgrabber - Nice!

The thread - this means nothing. That is, it's still equally likely that Lucas did or didn't intend it from the start. It's not as if there has never been an inaccurate trailer.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I know! I'm also glad it all happened really nearby, otherwise I wouldn't be able to identify with it at all.

That reminds me of how it sucks that they don't do those "Infinity" what if stories anymore. I would have loved to see one that was pretty much the original trilogy, but with the difference being that Anakin didn't get burned to a crisp, so he'd be pretty normal, excluding his robotic arm.

Not really to change any major plot elements, but just to see an older Anakin, possibly with a beard since as the movies went on, he looked similar to how Obi-Wan did in the previous film. Also to have more interesting fights with Obi-Wan in ANH and Luke in ESB and ROTJ.
