    If you're looking at just the movies, yes. But it was used in now-Legends EU in the 1990s, and it was used in TCW.

    I hope Snoke or someone else Dark Side dresses all in white in just to mess with people's heads. Reading through the TOR thread, it's a lot of "if you push an old lady into the street, your companions wear black. If you help an old beggar by giving them all your credits and your entire inventory, your companion wears white."

    I'm not familiar with Revan but I have seen a lot of Kylo fans who like Revan and Bastila.

    Personally I like my Dark Siders a little more confident and with a bit more of a no-bull**** attitude.

    But I like my Light Siders that way too, so...

    Kylo Ren and Revan have NOTHING in common.

    Yeah, other than fashion choices, and even then only vaguely, Kylo Ren and Revan are practically opposites in every possible way.

    Well, I think, aside from the headgear, they both have a bit of a cultish-brainwashed vibe (at least I get that from how Kylo talks about Snoke, Revan was literally brainwashed) and they do experience internal conflict between the light and the dark.

    got in my final viewing of TFA for the year after Rogue One (watched a bit on the iPod at gym after seeing R1). I still love this movie quite a lot and am getting quite good at committing it to memory like all of the other saga installments which is the most important thing. And I accomplished my 2016 New Years Resolution of watching TFA at least once a month (13 total complete viewings, 2 in January) So for 2017, my new years resolution is to only have one single, intentional, complete viewing of TFA about 24-ish hours before episode VIII. (hey if I happen to walk into a room and people are watching TFA, it's all good). Anyway, this is still one of my favourite bits in the whole movie

    IDK why but the artwork for the TFA score on vinyl is randomly amazing, and I want it.

    It's a homage to the TPM score.

    Oh my goodness they look like bleeding eyes. That is eerie, not very SW like, and yet...kind of awesome

    Captain Phasma looks cooler on the artwork than she did in the movie :p

    Those records are cool looking. The choice of design is a little odd, but I'll take it.

    I'm actually surprised there aren't more TFA pieces at C8's art show. I knew RO would get a good presence too, but, still.

    (Granted, the two pieces i definitely want are RO-related, so...)

    There's that scene when a really cool stormtrooper does really sick fighting staff moves and yells "TRAITOR" at her.

    Depends on the Revan and Kylo Ren's reason for leaving.

    Guys, Mark Hamill confirmed the floating hand holding Luke's lightsaber rumour from way, way ago was an actual thing. (Probably the Arndt draft)

    http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/05/mark-hamill-star-wars-nerd

    ; he told me that, in an earlier version of the script for The Force Awakens, “The first thing you see when they pan down after the crawl is a severed hand holding a lightsaber that is flying through space”

    Actually, some searching, he confirmed it a year ago too, in more detail:

    http://www.slashfilm.com/the-force-awakens-alternate-opening/

    I can tell you now that in the original opening shot of 7, the first thing that came into frame was a hand with a lightsaber, a severed hand that enters the atmosphere, and then the hand and bone burns away and goes sticking into the surface of Jakku. And this alien hand comes in, don’t know if it was Maz but it was an alien hand who takes the light saber way, and then the movie proceeds as you see it. […] One website had the first 15 minutes of The Force Awakens totally accurate.

    Now now, don't big up his role to much, it was not "the" map just "part" of a map :p
