>Hi sorry

It's kinda neither. It's part of her body but it isn't hair. It's not like she voluntarily moves it, either. It's kinda like a limp tail for your head (?) alien thing lol but it's coded as hair, if that helps.

These designs are cute, but definitely more childish. Glad they went with the final product version

Thank you, I get it. I always wondered about that and seeing this image >>140575 which says it's her future version and the hair thing is longer, so it must be some hairlike thing but it looks just like a hat in that image especially.
Imagine if we had that instead of hair, no need for styling or combing or whatever but it looks cool anyway, I'd really like that…

No. 140588

nta but they're meant to be like tendrils/horns. The top half are the horns and the lower half are the tendrils. Her species is a togruta and over time the tendrils grow, and her markings change as well. I heard they also double as ears? Not entirely sure how it works but

Of course, I love everything Hot Toys, but I wish they had a doll line with fabric clothes that were in the mid-range price and quality for adult collectors. Kinda like some collector Barbies that go from 50-80 dollars depending on the amount of details.

No. 146560

Rey is obviously awesome (as all Hot Toys figures are), but the porgs have really charmed me. I wish Kylo came with them, even though it makes zero sense. I may purchase the black series Porg figures, I think they should be in the right scale (haven't checked though, so maybe I'm wrong).
I think that Kylo Ren and porgs (in that order) are the best things that came out of the new trilogy… you will not change my mind.

No. 146569

I agree with you, but I'll add old Luke to the list, as well. I know a lot of people think his character was botched, but I really didn't get that impression - nor that he was a coward. Seing cynical and jaded old Luke was very fun for me. I wish they had explored more his relationship with Kylo for TROS, I'd love to see force ghost Luke just pestering Kylo, and then get super serious trying to get him to turn on the next scene. Alas…
Also, bb8! I love droids and round droids are just too cute. And he's my favorite color combination, to boot
For the black series porgs, I don't know the scale either. I hope someday to have the reylo Hot Toys, i'd definitely go for TLJ Rey cause she's my favorite.

Necro to say that I keep making myself sad by watching TRoS breakdowns/analysis videos. I'm on the team that liked TLJ, although I understand why people may not like it. But I think it had really nice set ups for the last movie, like Kylo being the big bad, the opposite sides of Rey (nothing, wanting to learn from and get closer to the past, light side with temptations from the dark) and Kylo ("royalty", wanting to distance himself and destroy the past, dark side with temptations from the light). I even shipped reylo slightly if I am completely honest, but I'd rather have them not be canon by the end, because it would be really forced even if the movie wasn't the big nuclear waste it was. But I wanted for Kylo Ren to be kept alive so the Skywalker lineage would live a little longer. Maybe a better writer could even keep him evil and alive I don't know if Disney would like that though kek
So much wasted potential. Although I think TFA was a bit of a rehash of the OG Star Wars with some new, shiny clothes, it was still exciting and left you wondering what would come next.
Sometimes I feel like writing a "fix it" TRoS comic and publish it somewhere just to get it out of my system. It can't be worse than what JJ sharted out.

Is there any hope for Disney retconning it or even soft rebooting it? A lot of people say no, especially in memory of Carrie Fisher. But I wouldn't hold my breath, I can totally see Disney retconning a lot of shit for series or even a game. We'll see…

I honestly don't mind the old graphics that much i think they are nostalgic, but especially in story-driven games like that it is nice to have beautiful visuals since you take it slower and the dramatic scenes can get distracting with a face made of like, 3 polygons
I remember seeing the trailer for The Old Republic back in 2011 and was blown away by it's graphics at the time, so imagine what they can do 10 years later. I already think BFII is beautiful.

On KOTOR? kek it would be so out of place, but more power to you

Also here's a thing for you, kylononny. I highly doubt the forbidden man would come back for the role aside from cameos, and I think they would do a prequel about his time with Luke and how he turned to the dark side. IIRC, Finn Wolfhard has said that he'd like to play Ben after seeing pics like picrel, so that would be my guess in case this actually happens.

God I want this, but also I'm afraid of Disney fucking up his backstory and lore. I see some promise. My dream would be an animated miniseries exploring Ben's past (can be cgi, but pls not ugly)

No. 159820

>My dream would be an animated miniseries exploring Ben's past
That would be the dream indeed. I like the lineless style for galaxy of adventures, but CGI is cheaper, especially for a TV show. In that case, I think the clone wars style is cool, but I'm not too fond of the resistance one. The animation and even the models are ok, but I think the cell shading looks a bit flat, idk.
But the fact that they do stuff like this to capitalize on the fact that little boys like Kylo Ren (and BB-8) tells me it's not completely impossible for Disney to come back to Ben. But I see more of it being a D+ series than a new movie trilogy tbh. And that would actually be better imo, so than can flesh out the story without the need to rush the pace or whatever to fit in a 2 hours movie

God, the existence of this video makes me sad. I'm aware that it's a different continuity than the Trilogy etc., just a funny cartoon for toddlers and shouldn't be treated seriously… but it's still a bit like looking at a childhood photo of a suicide/murder victim. Anyone is free to laugh at me and how it isn't that deep.
On another note, they've really squandered the potential of BB-8. People loved her!!! And now nobody remembers. LOL I'm not crying about it since BB-8 was just a cutesy mascot character, but that's a loss for Disney.
>CGI is cheaper, especially for a TV show. In that case, I think the clone wars style is cool, but I'm not too fond of the resistance one.
I didn't like much the Clone Wars style. I get what it was going for, but it wasn't right for me… It was okay, I guess. I would prefer the Netflix anime type CGI (also not perfect) with 'realistic anime' type artwork. Probably wouldn't look as good as I imagine, but I can dream. Even a character design like of that one Kylo figure would be ok.

Not gonna lie anon, that was my first reaction lol But I also think your love for Kylo is endearing. I like his character but I think I like him more because I'm also a driverfag than the opposite. I've liked SW since I was a kid but bringing him to the new trilogy sparked my interest again Star Trek is still the superior franchise with Star on it's name
>they've really squandered the potential of BB-8. People loved her!!! And now nobody remembers.
Really? It's absolutely not the case here in my country or some online SW spaces that I visit. Kids especially still love BB-8 and also me, but I love most droids, and the promotional stuff for the ST that I see always feature bb-8, Kylo and Rey. I'd say that Kylo Ren and bb-8 are the biggest cashcows of the ST, but Rey is also always there because: 1- little girls like her 2- she's the main character and all 3-reylo. Aside from that trifecta, it's always the old main droids, the new stormtroopers because most sane people can't barely tell the different era stormtroopers apart, spaceships and maybe either Poe or Finn if they are feeling daring.

> I would prefer the Netflix anime type CGI (also not perfect) with 'realistic anime' type artwork. Probably wouldn't look as good as I imagine, but I can dream. Even a character design like of that one Kylo figure would be ok.

I was going to tell you this was nearing pipe dream territory, but you know what? I can actually see this possibly happening if Disney was to hand this to their japanese studios. Considering how popular anime is nowadays, how Kylo Ren is moderately popular in Japan (he was featured in random japanese games like lineplay and the monster strike) and how it has been done successfully in the past with marvel properties (and DC as well, but that it's not disney so idk), it's not that farfetched. I'd say it has like a 7% chance of happenning lol work on your manifestation powers, nonnie

>i really hope that remake will turn out to be an amazing game and does well
It will totally do well despite of it being shit or not. I will put my chips on the table and bet this will be one of the most purchased games of the year it releases based on SW fanboy nostalgia alone. No matter where you go, KOTOR is always ranked the best SW game, and people have been wanting a remake for eons. I will go out on a limb here and even predict that Disney may start dropping hints of a D+ Old Republic series after the game sells out.

But speaking of games, I'm the anon who said was playing Jedi Academy and I am having so much fun. I don't even think the graphics in game are ugly, just kinda outdated (it does look goofy on the cinematic face close-ups though). The action holds up perfectly well. I wish they would make a remake of this one also, but I can see them maybe doing a soft reboot for the Jedi Knight series and repurposing Kyle Katarn's character to be more aligned with Disney's current idea of canon. Which, btw, I think Kyle's story should basically been Finn's, but he was reduced to a useless simp.

>mandalorian game when
I know they are making a (mobile?) action game, but with how the series is structured, it would be perfect for an action-RPG game.

Hope it's ok to bump this oldish thread but I don't see any other relevant threads to sperg on.

Anyway, I'm not a huge SW fan so I only got around to watching the new trilogy last weekend. I already knew all the major plot points from watching RLM.

One thing I haven't really found any discussion for yet is that the new trilogy has a really interesting take on family. It's become a bit of a cliche these days that every movie is about family being the most important because that's what most movie goers will relate to. Most of VII is trash but Rian Johnson really elevated the character of Kylo Ren (and his relationship with Rey). A big part of that is obviously drawing inspiration from Pride and Prejudice, similar to V taking inspiration from Gone with the Wind (which no ever talks about either even though it's pretty blatant…).

But the biggest improvement is that Kylo Ren has what appears to be a "narcissistic parents" background. Leia seems to have been too wrapped up in the resistance and Han probably didn't want to be a parent that much so Ben got sent to Uncle Luke's jedi school. Luke likely slowly put distance between them until finally almost murdering him. It's not really surprising Ben was drawn to Snoke if everyone else had been rejecting him. Then in IX, Leia distracts Kylo so that Rey can stab him. Leia chooses Rey and the resistance over her own son, terrible as he may be.

It's so rare to see movies that show how much having narcissistic parents can create this love/hate relationship inside you. Kylo kills Han but then has Han speak to him as a father. Kylo hesitates to kill Leia, perhaps still hoping that she will be a mother to him one day. He abandons the first order when Rey shows acceptance for him, someone that finally wants him around.

I'm sad that Rey didn't take Kylo's hand at the end of VIII and add the first order to the list of things to burn, or that Kylo didn't list this himself. Not as a Reylo thing but it would have been something completely new for the franchise. Plus the the resistance was basically nothing at that point. For Rey to insist on keep doing the same things when they were failing was dumb. They only won in IX because all the other ships magically appeared when there had been no one else on their side before.

Also Palpatine or Snoke should have been Darth Jar Jar. I really hope they confirm that eventually a it's so obvious when you look for it.

No. 298605

Forgot to add, another thing I really liked about both Ren and Rey is that they are their own people, shaped by their own experiences and not just clones of their parents. So many movies are lazy like that and it completely diminishes the characters.

I love Thrawn one of my favourite characters, especially in legends. But I’m honestly nervous with how they’re gonna portray him in live action, I hope they don’t do something stupid and kill him off early or I’ll be madly disappointed.

That's my biggest fear too. I can handle him being two dimensional evil, at least it will be entertaining and I can just add in the book portrayal in my head. But if they just waste him Disney Wars is dead to me lol.
