While I like that theory, let's not forget that this was a weird dream/vision/walkabout scene. We cannot see this as in-canon-confirmation, even if I'd really want to.

Did you know that the Mexican release of Bobba Fett from Lily Ledy (licensed through Kenner) has a removable rocket? They pretty much beat the safety recall by changing it that way. So, you need that too if you don't have it.

Damn. I never knew that. It's not 'Murican though so it OBVIOUSLY doesn't count. Hence, a loophole for me.

True. I just heard about it in a video from a toy collector (I watched today) who visited a convention in Mexico. It's kind of neat, though. But it also appears to go for a couple hundred.

The Madalorian footage looks amazing. Like the best thing Disney has done with the IP since they bought it from Lucas in 2012.

I'm not dreading it or anything, but I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting for it to come out, either. I'll see it in the theater, no doubt, and I hope I'll be pleasantly surprised, but I don't have super high hopes. I enjoyed 7 and 8 on some level, but neither convinced me that we were better off continuing the story than just leaving it where it was at the end of RotJ.

I'll reluctantly watch it with my equally reluctant family some day on Netflix just for some weird sense of completion. We still haven't gotten around to Solo, though.

Solo was decent, if a bit by the numbers. I didn't hate it but it was on Netflix so I watched it. I liked it more than TLJ.

I will probably see ep9 with my family in the theater, but no one has given it much thought yet.

Solo was ok. Not a bad movie at all, it just didnt feel like an important event like Star Wars does. Whether I like the movie in the end or not, the rest of the movies at least feel like I am seeing something special. Solo was just a movie.

I actually loved Solo and Rogue One; I'm much more into the classic SW trilogy era, but honestly I'll take it all, even the prequels, even the Ewoks tv specials. I've enjoyed the new episodes, not nearly as much as the classics, there were definitely some hiccups with the last outing, but I get hyped for each one.

With that said I really can't wait for The Mandalorian. I've been obsessed with Boba Fett for a while, and was really disappointed SW 1313 never came out. I'm glad they are recycling some of those concepts into this new series. It looks dope.

The Mandalorian looks great. I'm really looking forward to it.

A couple good videos in my subscription for May the 4th yesterday. The first is Pixel Dan's (with guest Toy Galaxy) look at the 90's line "Power of the Force" and the second is Dark Corners' first video about the buildup to Ep.1.

This is either the Benioff/Weiss trilogy or the Rian Johnson trilogy. While I suppose whichever one it isn't could be slated for the odd years in-between these, those would be the years where Disney's new acquisition Fox has slated their Avatar sequels. And I doubt that Disney will be cannibalizing their own ticket sales after Infinity War ripped Solo a new one at the box office last year.

I think it's the Benioff/Weiss trilogy. That Johnson project will likely get downsized, moved to the streaming service, or quietly scrapped down the road. They won't say so now to save face.

^I think I might give up on even catching up with all that stuff. My family and I begrudgingly watched Episodes 7 and 8 and will likely Netflix 9 some day for completion's sake, but I really don't care at all about a whole new generation of characters. As it is, I don't even remember the new names.

That was neat to see and well done. In light of the preqs, the OT fights seem slow, but I always liked that the Obi/Vader duel was so minimal. Lucas heavily copied Kurosawa and the Jedi were largely modeled on samurai. Those guys were all into minimal movements. Supposedly there were samurai who prided themselves on being able to defeat an opponent without fully unsheathing their katana. I take that fight in that sense. These guys have so honed their craft that they don't need fancy moves and jumps; they put it all in a few inches.

On an unrelated topic, here's a fun little clip of Mayhew actually speaking with his voice as Chewie on ESB's Hoth set:
