Not harsh at all. I've seen that said a few times though. This is in no way a criticism of the 501st, nor even LFL (though they do get their pound of flesh out of guys who pour megabucks into costumes that end up promoting LFL for free!). What is a pity is that once the official stuff is done, *everyone* probably won't be able to get together as *fans* for a big group photo of costumed up *fans*. But this is definitely a discussion for elsewhere. Still!?! Gotta experience something to be able to criticise it I reckon (and there's plenty of criticism that could be directed against 1 and to a lesser extent 2 & 3, hehe). I watched the Matrix 3 the other week (not for the first time I must admit)...man I could tear the crap out of that film (again ).
