    LOL!! I loved the part where Harrison signs John’s action figure! Classic! = )

      It could have been really awkward if Boyega asked Ford to sign a body part.

        “Come on Harrison, just give it a little scribble on the crotch… Yeah thats it.”

        “Get away from me! Chewie, help!”

      I’m not so sure that’s Boyega’s action figure. In the shot where he says “right here” the signature below his finger looks like his own.

        Incidentally, looks like Adam Driver signed the arm and wrote, “Such a pleasure…[unreadable]..with you.”

        Even in the OT there was never a complete full size version.

          While I wasn’t complaining, just joking, I seem to recall that in echo base they had a complete one… then again even for this movie they’ve built a complete one to use at pinewood…

            Yes, sorry, you are correct, Empire did have a complete full scale ship, pretty awesome looking. I’m sure it was dismantled afterwards. In fact, there’s a scene in ROTJ that always bugged me. It’s where Han and Lando stand in front of the Falcon and Han insists that Lando use if for the attack on the new Death Star. It’s obvious that the ship is just a backdrop.

            Yup. One of the very few things that could’ve used some digital correction in the “Special Edition” and, of course, Lucas left it the way it was. -_-

            Maybe he would have eventually corrected it if some people didn’t pester him and force him to retire.

            He would have added it in the 2020 Blu-ray edition, along with CGI Jabba flying around with an army of digitally “enhanced” robot fireflies. Don’t blame the fans for Lucas’ mistakes.

            It’s probably been fixed in Adywan’s Empire Revisited edit. That guy’s incredibly talented, some of his added effects actually outshine many of those added by LucasFilm to the authorized Special Editions…

          • December 8, 2015 at 1:29 am
            Permalink

            The Adywan edits mostly use recycled effects footage from the rest of the saga and a few choice other films, so it’s a bit incorrect to refer to “his added effects” since he doesn’t actually do any. The few authentically new shots, mostly the CGI TIEs in his ANH, were done by someone else for the project, and are a poor match to the rest of the footage. Moreover that shot demonstrates the biggest problem with Ady in that he seems to suffer from the same ADHD that affected Lucas on the Special Editions. He adds pointless shit where it just clutters the shot just because ”that one line said there are 30 ships, so they ALL HAVE TO BE ON SCREEN ALL THE TIME!”. The less said about his musical addition the better, and what he’s shown off of the Falcon’s escape from Cloud City demonstrates that he has no grasp of WHY ILM put those bumps and jolts in their camera moves in the first place, and manages to mostly kill the energy of the whole sequence…because “new Falcon!”.
            Now, you want to look at a fan editor who has done truly remarkable work, look no further than Harmy.

            Hmm. I have Adywan’s edit of A New Hope, but I haven’t actually gotten around to watching it yet. I guess I had bought into the hype, what with all the rave reviews and whatnot. Shame it’s not as great as so many have been claiming.

            I don’t think I’ve seen any of Harmy’s editions. Is he the one that did the so0called “De-Specialized Editions”? I have something called The Rebellion Collection, which I first read about on these TalkBacks. I guess it’s supposed to the the original theatrical versions with some restoration and remastering work done, and presented in anamorphic. But I haven’t watched any of those yet either.

            They had a Falcon set built for Jedi for the unused sandstorm scene. I don’t know why they didn’t use that set for the Lando hanger scene.

            Mmmmm…more like 3/4 scale. Let THAT sink in – the Falcon in ESB (and half re-assembled for the Jedi sandstorm) is technically a miniature, just in a larger scale than the 5 footer or 32′ mocon models.

            It was a matte painting – I saw the thing at a Star Wars exhibition in London back in 2000. It looks quite nice up close. 🙂

    Poe Dameron is *with* the Stormtroopers as they disembark on Jakku?

      they’re more likely disembarking on the destroyer.

      look at the background, that’s not a desert planet, that’s a docking bay.

    • December 6, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      My guess is that Poe gets captured on Jakku and is taken to a Star Destroyer where Kylo Ren will perform his magic on him.

    It was nice to see Mark Hamill aswell, even for a such short time. I know they want suprise, but for me its very annying, that they keep the hero of Star Wars completly in the backgournd. Im really curious about what happened to him…

    • December 6, 2015 at 1:33 am
      Permalink

      the question what happened with Luke is exactly what this entire trilogy is about, and because they don’t spoil it, you want to see the movie. The fact that you feel “annoyed” shows -exactly- that the mystery box campaign works, because you can’t wait to see the movie.

        Yea I know, and I dont want them to spoil anything ofc, however Han Solo, or Leia are all pushed pretty much, but why do they have to keep Mark Hamill away even from the interviews? He could’ve said some words about the filming or his expressions about the movie, but nothing…

          Mark was just about the only one talking in the first half of the year, it just seems that he is on rotation as his current looks might give away a bit too much of EP8?

    After this trilogy is done and all the spin-offs are too, They should auction off that to scale version of the Falcon for charity. Not sure where most people would put it but it would be the ultimate collector’s item. Same with one of the X-Wings too.

      Auction? No, no, no, they should finish it, make it complete outside and inside, and put it in Disneyland, where the new Star Wars park will be, accessible to the public.

        I like it but that means everybody will literally be walking all over it. So maybe make a replica mould for the parks and auction the original off to some rich and generous fucks or some poor lucky winner.

          They should build a replica of the sets for people to see at Disneyland.

            Should just build a new park seeing as how they will run of room soon enough. They could have a land for each planet.

    I’m just glad the entire OT cast lived long enough to make this film. I would have loved to seen Alec Guiness in it but I doubt he would do to it even if he were alive and would probably be about 100 today so unable to travel.

    Reason Hamil has been left out of marketing is there is a secret character (actor) that is connected to Luke that appears in final act and scene’s on trailer would give major surprise away! Info from friend at pinewood who I know 100% worked on film, for what that’s worth lol

      …Are you 100% serious? And what kind of connection does that make Luke an absent character from marketing?

      • December 6, 2015 at 9:27 pm

        Yes serious, from what I have been told preety much all of Luke’s scenes involve the surprise character so the artoo shot is all they can show. And by the way nice comment Peter north people like you are why I don’t post much
