And all the TOR sets. I believe KOTOR was a larger success than the TOR MMO.
I want promos to be obscure characters, not endless protocol droid repaints. Repainted astromechs, on the other hand...
Away from lego the calmer to get hold of these figures when Hasbro released them last year was significant and those 'EU' figures continue to demand a high after market price.
A little obscure for broader lego fans but a great looking figure and I hope for many more like it.
In general, I'm curious to see how this pays off. On the one hand, they're slapping a not insignificant number of fans in the face by disregarding nearly thirty years of canonical material (I know Lucas claims it isn't 'absolute canon,' but the guy had a team devoted to making sure they stayed consistent with the films and each other, even going so far as to retconning dates and events when the prequel trilogy wound up being inconsistent with dates and events already established by the EU). On the other hand, because they chose to set it way too close to RotJ, they would have been isolating an even larger portion of fans who haven't kept up with the EU. Were it mine, I would have just said, "We're setting this 100 years after RotJ. Feel free to create a new story from there." As it stands right now, I think their desperate nostalgia grab is going to leave a sour taste in a lot of fans' mouths.
But I digress. If Disney is committed to washing their hands of the EU, I'm not holding my breath for a figure like Revan to turn up again. Not any time soon, at least.
They ignore you (or should) because more often than naught you have nothing useful to say or add to the discussion. Most of the time it seems like you make comments to purposefully try to start a conflict and worse yet you seem not to only acknowledge you do this but enjoy it too.
That to me equals big Troll. Now I have not heard many people who openly relish this, which is astounding to me. As for your explanations, again trolls will rationalize all the want, but that does not make it right.
As for the figure give away. I'm likely going to buy LEGO in May, so as long as I do not have to only buy star wars Ill probably still try to get a couple
If that is true then by proxy Disney will be publishing old and on going EU material so I do see them allowing lego and probably Hasbro to produce toys in support of this if the demand is there, just good business really.
And as always @y2josh helpfully points out the constellations. Did you take journalism class in reverse? "No rumors? Send news!"
Yes, you can only know a person to a certain extent through the internet, which is exactly why you shouldn't be arguing with everyone at every opportunity given, or flagging every comment that you don't agree with. The first thing that comes to mind is definitely "troll". And worse, as @madforLEGO said, you seem to enjoy it!
You can rationalize all you want, but your actions say otherwise.
Back on topic, I really like the look of the Revan minifig, but I'm not sure I want to spend another $75 just to get the minifig. I'll probably see if I can trade or buy here on Brickset :o)
Most disapointing things was the cancelation of the Boba Fett Game, it was supose to be epic,and i waited 5 or so seasons of Clone Wars to see Asoka get shot in the face and it never happened.....oh and Leia Organa is a Disney Princess....
Im glad Disney and LEGO seam to have a good relationship, we will be getting new sets for the next 10 years at least, including all the new Movies/whatevers.
Finally some love for us Kotor fans!
Truly all I can say is if you've never played Kotor....PLAY IT. If you have any love for SW in any way you will enjoy it.
I don't actually give a crap about starting conflict or not starting conflict. If I offer my opinion, I offer my opinion. If I provide a fact, I provide a fact. This is a web forum and quite frankly nothing more than that so far as I'm concerned which means I don't take what's written here to heart as gospel. What does concern me is when people hypocritically believe that some are entitled to express their opinions simply because they are shared by the majority while those who hold different opinions are free to be attacked, both in the forums and via messages. Fortunately, I don't hold any of those individuals or their opinions or comments in any regard whatsoever and thus it doesn't really matter to me but to others that kind of behavior might be more distressing. In any regard, it's pretty contrary to the spirit of "community" that some of those same hypocrites occassionally even mention (personally, I've never bought the argument that online forums are true "communities" given a variety of reasons that would fill a different discussion). I don't respect opinions, I respect facts and reasoned arguments. Opinions, whether mine or those of anyone else, are worthless. Unfortunately, most people don't seem to realize this. As more than one person has said (as I write this, Harlan Ellison comes to mind but he's not the only one), too many people assume that opinions are equal to facts when they are not.
As for self-centered, that's your opinion and as such I don't respect it not only because it's an opinion but because it's based on ignorance. Those who actually know me typically consider me the least self-centered person that they know. First, I don't argue "with everyone at every opportunity". That's hyperbole and if you actually bothered to check the forums instead of clinging to your personal bias you might realize that (unless of course you do realize that and simple are engaging in another ad hominem attack; either way, you're in the wrong). Secondly, I don't flag every comment with which I don't agree, I flag those who engage in personal attacks instead of my argument or those who take my words out of context to engage in straw man arguments. That's why your post was flagged because you made assumptions (I'm "self-centered", "regard other's opinions as inferior to [my] own", etc) instead of actual arguments.
I recognised the name Darth Revan but haven't played any of the KOTOR games so obviously just heard it in discussion etc. I don't think its a bad choice, I think these promotions will always appeal more to the completionist/high paying collectors so having obscure characters that won't fit well into a set is probably a strong idea.
Personally not for me though, I'd rather have a variation of a character I know or would be more tempted if the poly consisted of the character and a small build, just for this character its not worth it for me. Thats just my opinion though, well aware that a lot of people loved KOTOR and will be psyched for this.
@rancorbait Yes, I just HAD to put this together. My daughter is watching "Frozen", that movie has her in a trance. She is singing "Let it goooo. Let it goooo."
"Make it stoooop. Make it stoooop."
YEESS. YEESS. *Applause* Now there is an inspired post, made with impeccable timing. Bravo. BRAVO! It spurred into action the white-blood cell posts this thread desperately needed to beat the spreading sickness.
I just want to know about the "three different tiers". Apparently they look nice. They LOOK NICE, people! Is it a Wedding Cake? A new type of pricing structure? The suspense, the not knowing, is unbearable.
Angry argumentative manager-type in an office giving subordinate staff a hard time, abruptly picks out typist, and asks some impertinent and loud question. Typist pauses... looks up, and announces 'My dog has a bad leg', then continues typing. Manager-type is stunned into silence, splutters, mutters something unintelligible, then walks away holding his head.
Remaining staff ask typist why she said that, her response 'Huh, was just any unrelated nonsense, always say it to disarm the agitated'.
One of you mentioned why such a character (Extended Universe) was selected while other movie canon figures were not. Well to put it frankly promotional figures are meant to be one off, collectable and unique. Why do you think figures like TC-4 and Shadow ARF trooper were made?
On a related note HK-47 would have made an awesome mini figure ;)
OOh... I just played that music video above (the guy singing a parody song), which led me to clicking another parody song: the girl singing 'google translates'. It's kinda funny, but by gum, that girl can really sing!
