#489078 The Star Wars Non-Canon TV Show Topic (Except The Mandalorian is super great)

Posted by broons on Yesterday, 04:20 PM

and now we have to wait a whole week for the next one like we're living in the stone age or something.


Im not positive but I think Chapter 2 comes out Friday and then it goes to a weekly release.

So The Mandalorian Chapter One was pretty fantastic. It has just the right mixture of the gritty bounty hunter story we all wanted with Boba Fett and the silliness that makes Star Wars what it is.

I'm very optimistic about this one, guys.

Yessir, though I don't know if that includes shipping. 

 

I know that feeling man.

 

So real talk how would I get something like this, or any kind of military style LEGO set?  Obviously you built this one, but are there instructions?  Sets that sell themselves?

 

And the most important question: has anyone built a 688 or Virginia class sub kit?  Or an aircraft carrier?  Or destroyer? 

 

Maybe that should be your next challenge idk.

Physical Build Cost: $44.70

 

Are you telling me I could have this cool ass LEGO tank for less than $50?

 

Man I kinda miss LEGO lately.

The fact that the sword blades aren't three feet wide almost makes me want to play Skyrim again.

The Boys is probably the greatest comic book adaptation of this decade, not gonna lie to you guys.

 

It takes everything we love about superheroes and turns it on its head, and it's fantastic.  The writing, the acting (good golly Homelander is terrifying) the action, the violence and the comedy.  It just works.  It feels more like a comic book on the screen than anything else I can think of in the past decade.  Even The Avengers which was world changing way back in 2012 didn't feel this fun.  I blew through the entire series in less than 24 hours and I gotta tell you guys, you're missing out.

 

Next I'm gonna finally finish The Expanse because I miss my sci fi, and then I'm gonna sit here and be sad because the Amazon Lord of the RIngs adaptation won't be here until 2021 and from everything I've read it sounds like they're going to be doing that very, very right (and if The Boys is any inkling of how they can adapt a page-to-screen story then hot DAMN am I friggin excited)

Ubisoft has officially turned one of the classic military combat video games of my childhood into another generic shoot em up robot killing game, with bad guys wearing capes.

I'm pretty upset.

Cinematic reveal trailer for Fallen Order. No gameplay, but they're 100% saving that for E3.


This is a story game, no multiplayer, no microtransactions, about being a Jedi.


I'm PUMPED I tell ya


#488466 Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Maclunkey

Posted by broons on 12 April 2019 - 02:55 PM

That title is kinda straight up hot garbo, but otherwise I'm pretty excited.

 

I've already read some theories that "Skywalker" will become the new term for force users, casting aside Jedi and Sith as commonplace terms.

 

It kinda makes sense but it's also kinda dumb.

My guys... that poster looks absolutely terrible.

If I didn't trust Ocelot so much I would say it was a crappy photoshop.

This is the first time I've been legitimately excited over video games in a long, long time.

I played the original HALO on PC eons ago, and never played the others. I'm gonna waste so much time when this is released.

Outlaw King was a pretty good spiritual successor to Braveheart.

Braveheart was a more coherent movie in the terms of storytelling, but Outlaw King had (in my opinion) far better battle scenes.

From what I've read, Cavill is just doing a first time costume test there and theres no makeup or shiz to go with it.

They really don't need to find a way to shoehorn an ancient Boba Fett into 9. Like come on. Theres absolutely no reason to do that except to fulfill fanboy fantasies.
