    LOL, yes very true, that armor can "expand" to cover a lot! [face_laugh]

    Random Thought!

    Mehinks Lucasfilm should stop trying to "force" (no pun intended. really.) a live action "dark times" star wars tv series and instead expand the clone wars animated show to a rebellion era companion series. Srsly. Ive seen the statues they've done of classic era characters, and they rock... c'mon George... Embrace the overzealous CGI love and just keep making more beautiful episodes...

    Just sayin'.

    I've tried to watch the Clone Wars a few times and I just haven't been able to get into it.

    On a side note - I find it a bit annoying that at Target at least, Clone Wars figures are $6.99 and Saga figures are $7.99. What's up with that?

    I have been watching the Season 1 collection, and overall have enjoyed the episodes. Most are passable, several are pretty good... a lot of my goodwill is in the name of the art style I admit, but I have heard it has consistently improved over time with the 2nd and soon to be 3rd seasons...

    How fun! And btw, I don't have a blog so you're not the last.

    This means you'll probably have to grow to love the Clone Wars...and Jar Jar Binks! ;)

    I can think of worse things then Jar Jar Binks in the saga... like Han shooting second, Han's head jerking around with bad CGI (okay same thing), umpteen billion rereleases and other money grubbing tactics, Lucasfilm making an announcement at WonderCon that they will make an announcement at Comic Con and then at comic con announce more announcements at celebration, Hayden Christensen in anything but his angry/rage scenes... Jake Lloyd...so as for Jar Jar... I dunno. The gungan gets a bad rap. Without him, there would be no darth darth binks. Or emergency powers for the Chancellor. It was his DENSITY (sic).

    I actually didn't mind Jar Jar that much when I first saw epidose I, but a little of him goes a long way! He does seem to have more of an appeal for kids. Just seems like a lot of people don't like him, kinda like the ewoks in ROTJ!

    I don't see the big fuss about Jar Jar either. Sure he's annoying at times, but I think there was a lot of jumping on the "We Hate Jar Jar" bandwagon by a lot of folks for no good reason other then it was the thing to do. Jar Jar is the crazy uncle of the SW family, and love him or hate him, he will always be a part of SW. I choose to embrace Jar Jar, I like his clumsy antics and his simple attitudes towards the events happening around him and I think he brings a level of comic relief to all the stuffy political talk in the prequels. Then again, I still watch cartoons and collect toys, so I guess something that was meant to appeal to kids will also appeal to me. I support the Binks, Oie Boie! ;)

    Pretty funny mashup of the Town with Star Wars!

    Star Wars Town

    Oh yeah, in case you have been in a cave this past week, it was recently announced that Star Wars is going 3D! Estimated to hit theaters sometime in 2012 the Phantom Menace will be re-released in 3D with the other movies following in chronological order. According to the Lucas camp they are taking their time to do the conversion to 3D right so the movies don't end up looking like Clash of the Titans or the Last Airbender, both which were shot for 2D and had shotty 3D added to them later on. Anyway, I'm sure that the success or failure at the box office of the Episode 1 re-release in 3D will tell the tale if the others even get converted. Will have to wait a little while to see, but SW back on the big screen 3D or no 3D is always a good thing in my book! Nothing beats the magic of seeing them on the big screen the way they were meant to be seen.

    October minutes are posted. :D

    I'm not kidding about Xanadu, Peeps. If you want to suggest something else, I need to hear about it soon. Otherwise, we are singing along to ON-J and ELO. (Read the minutes if you don't know what I'm talking about!)

    Fantastic... thank you for posting the minutes! It's really heartening to hear so many good things are building up again for the group... and don't forget, we've got the "awesome" prospect of looking forward to all the films in the 3-D (camping any line, anyone?) in the coming year(s)... ;)

    Happy Halloween everyone!!!

    Finished my pumpkins last night, a Stormtrooper for obvious reasons and "Blizzard Squadron" (the AT-AT's) from ESB!!! I think they both turned out alright, given that I use the "pumpkin cutter" to do all my carving, no fancy smancy carving tools for me! ;)

    2010 Halloween Pumpkins!!!
