  1. Considering the core set and announced hero packs don't include Wolverine or Deadpool, I'm thinking the mutants are off the table for the time being. I'd love to see Storm, as well. She's one of my favorite X-Men.
  2. Sorastro has been known to use Army Painter in the past. These sets tend to be a bit more basic than he uses, though. One of his Imperial Assault videos might use 30 paints.
  3. ... among other parodies. Let me reword: Mike Stoklasa will make some video as Plinkett that's 10 times as long as it needs to be.
  4. There are a lot of people who have made careers or, at the very least, a decent supplementary income from telling people how much TLJ sucked. It doesn't matter if Episode IX turns out to be the next ESB; people will hate it, Plinkett will make some video that's 10 times as long as it needs to be, and we'll hear about how The Mouse killed Star Wars forever.
  5. I'm with you, really. Plinkett aside (the "comedy" of that series wore out around Attack of the Clones), I don't hate The Last Jedi. I don't love it, either. There are things I do love, like *everything* with Luke Skywalker (I'm still mad they cut out the party scene), DJ's character and Kylo Ren actually showing some depth. And there are things I don't like, such as the entire casino sequence, the overall timeline of the story, and Rose's character (for what it's worth, I thought the actor was fine--I thought the character was meh.) I didn't have a problem with Leia exhibiting Force powers, but I thought the way that was displayed could have been done better. I didn't have a problem with Holdo's keeping secrets from Poe, or with Poe's reaction to it. I did, however, dislike Holdo's characterization in the movie, as it seemed very, very different from her characterization in the novel. Granted, I understand that four years of open warfare and 30 years of time looking for the next threat can certainly change a person, but, apart from her hair, she just seemed like a different character. I'd put it just above TPM and AotC in my ranking--just under RotS. But, I don't regret seeing it twice in theaters nor buying the Blu-ray. And, honestly, I look forward to what he can do with a trilogy that he has control of from start to finish.
  6. They've been pulling from the EU since they reset the canon, so here goes: The Death Star II actually contained cloning vats, as the Emperor meant to make that station his new traveling capitol. During the explosion, pieces fell to the surface, including that vat chamber. The explosion and subsequent landing caused irreparable damage to the chamber, but only after it activated as part of Palpatine's Contingency. The only clone that was close to ready was prematurely activated and irreparably scarred in the crash, but escaped to mete out its revenge, calling itself Snoke. However, that chamber has been repaired, and a fully grown clone of Sheev Palpatine now walks the galaxy, with his spirit inhabiting it. This is Endor, of course, because the Death Star I was on the other side of a gas giant from the Rebel base when it exploded, having just cleared the planet enough to get off a shot. Any debris would have fallen into the gas giant, shot out into space, or had enough lateral velocity to achieve orbit, at least for a while.
  7. I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. It just means they need to broaden their horizons some and look into alternate times, characters, and themes. Kind of like they're doing now.
  8. Yeah. I saw Crabbok’s video this morning. That’s why I was kind of confused. I saw the Phantom II, and I thought, “Cool. They’re giving us both shuttles this time.” But the announcement made no mention of the Phantom, even if it does come docked there.
  9. I want the Phantom to be included with the Ghost. I don’t like the look of the Sheathipede.
  10. Duplicate post, because the forum gave no indication that my first submission worked.
  11. It doesn't ruin ROTJ any more than Dark Empire did.
  12. I’d love to see some characters that could be used in either army (or multiple armies). These would be leaders and operatives, pretty much. Same or similar abilities, different minis. The two obvious examples are Kallus and Iden Versio. I’d enjoy the crap out of that. Heck, The Grand Inquisitor could work for both Empire and Republic. Rex and Ashoka could work for Rebels and Republic. I can’t think of any Separatist examples, though.
  13. But, at the end of the move, the walker needs to be relatively stable. Some of these terrain pieces I've seen are flared out so much at the bottom that it's difficult to get a base to balance on them. And even then, is that considered "stable"? For the record, the T-47 has the same problem, as do the other vehicles, but their smaller bases make it a bit easier to find that sweet spot on the terrain.
  14. My Han and two commandos showed up early on the 24th. I ordered my cores and first expansions from them, and they showed up in a similar timeframe. I had one other order from them back when I bought a case of D&D minis on preorder. All have gone smoothly and I’ve received my product in what I would consider an excellent timeframe, considering I always opt for the cheapest shipping. I hope that azavander had the same luck with his order.
  15. Cover is applied before Impact. Unit with Impact 2 rolls two hits on its attack on speeder with Cover 1 and Armor. Cover removes one hit. Armor 2 allows up to two hits to become crits, but only one hit remains because of Cover 1. Speeder rolls defense against 1 damage.
