    So has anyone heard of the new Fan Club? It looks like Insider is now being run by LucasFilm, so you sign up for the new membership, get a new member packet, 6 issues of SW Mag a year (I htink it's still Insider), and access to Hyperspace. Considering that my time was up for renewal I just bit the bullet and went with the new Fan Club. It seems pretty cool. I haven't played around with Hyperspace too much, but it seems pretty cool. I hope, for $39.99 anyway :confused:

    Yeah- I guess it is still Insider. I can't believe they are forcing all of those extras on us, though. That was pretty low. I'll probably end up getting it, though. I like being a Fan Club member and I love my Insiders.

    Do you think it is worth it? How was Hyperspace?

    I haven't gotten around to renewing my subscription, and I don't think I'm going to. I'm trying to streamline my life and I never actually read the entire Insider, plus I'm trying to go into E3 with as little spoilers as possible. :)

    It's not worth it. Hyperspace is the biggest waste of bandwidth I have ever seen. It's also very hard to navigate, with stuff just thrown all over the page. I don't get the feeling that I can just think to myself 'I want to see this' and head over to Hyperspace and find it. It's more like 'I'll log onto hyperspace, throw my chance cube and see what happens'.

    The only cool thing was the Episode 3 behind the scenes stuff, which if you want to stay even marginally spoiler free you won't use. So maybe it was worth the $12 a year or whatever it was, but an additional $10 a month? Hardly! My reccomendation is just buy the Insider from the news stands.

    Yeah, I can't imagine having to go out an pick it up every month or so. There's just something special about having it delivered to your mailbox.

    Honostly, I keep forgetting that I have access to hyperspace. It's nice to get the Insider delivered, but it would be nice if they didn't force all of the other crap for the increased price.

    I've been truly tempted to try out Hyperspace just so I could keep tabs on the making of EIII. I haven't actually done it yet, though, because I just can't bring myself to pay for something that should really be free. What are they going to even have to offer once the movie is out? After they release the movie, the whole "behind the scenes" access will be worthless.

    Star Wars Sucks! When will all of you pathetic life forms realize that the only Force in the whole instalment is a fat man who uses little children to make money. It doesn't even make sense. It has no plot, no acting, no screen writing. All it has is a little green blob of snot saying "uhmmm, strong, a jedi must be." They don't even use proper English.
    the special affects are about as special as a paper plate.

    Star Wars is for 12 year olds. Don't blow all your money on this waste of film.

    May the "Farts" be with you.

    If you hate it so much, why did you find this message board? And why choose Daytona as the only place to post this? hmmmmm...

    And I always thought the plot was to bring down the Empire, but that could just be me.

    Well, that's just rude. How would that guy like it if we bash his favorite movie. I think I'm gonna cry now.
