    Seeing that cast photo I have seen so many times move and come to life is freaking awesome.

    They built a more complete TIE than the one in the film. Just sayin… XD

    Is anyone here going to SXSW?

    Pass! Crankypants summed it up best as he usually does in saying this is more like an EPK in terms of bonus material. It’s just a dry run for the 3D release. Say what you will about the PT but at least they gave you your money’s worth in term of special features.

      We already knew you weren’t going to buy it.

      So why come here and say something about it…when no one cares but you.

      Do you write an angry letter to Disney and J.J. every day? I bet you do.

        You are such a pompous blowhard, AI. This isn’t your own personal website, you don’t speak for anyone but yourself, so for chrissakes stop trying to shut down any conversation you don’t happen to agree with already. You constantly bitch and moan about people who express opinions you don’t like, but I tell you, I’d rather read a thousand things I disagreed with than have to listen to your constant attempts to shout down any voices but the echo chamber in your head. Pro-tip – don’t care for the conversation? It doesn’t necessarily need your voice in it.

        • March 12, 2016 at 5:08 am

          There are hundreds of conversations that go on here I ignore.

          Some of them even involve you.

          Yet I don’t post under them. Just the people who insist on starting garbage or being insulting. Or in Snark’s case, make the same passive aggressive attacks to stir up angry posts on a site pretty much dedicated to the love of a particular topic.

          I hardly shout anyone down. I simply provide facts in a manner that I find amusing where most people, like yourself, are completely incapable of responding to in a constructive or civil way that proves what you said had the least amount of merit buried deep down inside of it.

          So, if you come to this site, every day, and repeat the same criticisms over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again and believe you’re entitled NOT to have someone point that out..Well, I’ve read your posts. You don’t exactly appreciate that sort of behavior either.

          I think the first two words you used to describe me are better suited to you. Your posting hero belies a man that attacks everyone and anyone who you think just says something stupid you don’t agree with. That’s more or less your MO. You’re not exactly a troll, you actually back up your opinions with well thought out explanations, but as you told me before you don’t apologize for letting people have it when you think they deserve it.

          Are you angry at me because I’m competing for the only relevant position you have on the internet?

          Chill, man. I’m sure you have some CGI work you could be doing for Vampire Diaries or something.

      Don’t know if it’ll be the 3D release – if I had to bet, my money would be on an ‘ultimate’ edition for Christmas, tied to Rogue One’s marketing I think.

        You should put money on it. They will do this again with VIII to promote Han Solo too.

    • March 12, 2016 at 4:56 am

      Yeah but the movies were shit.

      • March 12, 2016 at 10:07 am

        Maybe but it was entertaining of itself to watch Lucas justify them and the cast/crew’s horrified reaction. Like some Christopher Guest film.

          Plinkett’s reviews will always be historic lol.

            Some of the PT dialogue is now as iconic as any from the OT even if it’s for all the wrong reasons.

          • March 13, 2016 at 4:13 pm

            Definitely. THIS is podracing btw.

          • March 13, 2016 at 4:42 pm

            Love can’t save you. Only my new powers can.

  • March 11, 2016 at 10:57 pm

    honestly if they taped the entire table read and put it on the blu-ray.. i’d be squealing. that sounds super fun to watch.

  • March 12, 2016 at 5:17 pm

    is that the first look on the regular Tie from ST? seems that regular Joes still have to fly solo in these unlike the Black Ops ones
