    The Simpsons Movie 2

    I'm surprised that Groening is taking on such a big project considering he is also releasing a Netflix show soon. I'm extremely indifferent towards the Simpsons, so sure, why not. The first one was decent, so I'll probably watch this one too.

    Star Wars

    It's true what you said. All of it. Grievous was one of the biggest disappointments in that show. The 2003 miniseries was superior to the 2008 series in many aspects, and the characterization of Grievous is definitely one of them. He became one of my favorite characters after Tartakovski's excellent take on him, and Filoni almost made me hate him. It certainly seems that way, although I felt that he was still fairly intimidating in Ep.III despite the cough and stuff, not nearly as much of a joke as he was in the following cartoon. As for the more lighthearted tone of the show, I always thought that that's just because it was aimed more at children, even more so than the movies. Actually, he never had a backstory in the 2003 show. That was just his backstory in one of the EU books which was never really canon, and it was Dooku who transformed him, not Palpatine, but I agree, that was a much better origin story for him and I wish they would have adopted it for the 2008 series, just like they adopted Maul's robot legs from the same book. According to Filoni in this video, Lucas' idea of Grievous' backstory is that he really wanted to be a Jedi and made those cybernetic enhancements himself in order to match the abilities of the Jedi which is kind of stupid if you ask me and doesn't really give him anything to be "grievous" about. But fortunately they kept his origin kinda vague in the show, so it can be whatever you want it to be. In my head-canon, he still has his EU backstory, and him claiming that he chose those "improvements" is just him being too proud to admit that he submitted to Dooku's will. That gives him a tragic backstory to match his name and makes him more of a three-dimensional character. All that said, I do look forward to The Clone Wars returning, although I'm not sure I'll be getting Disney's streaming service. They'll have to offer a lot more new stuff than one season of a decade-old show to make it worth the money.
  3. Hi everyone. This is my entry for the Architecture Faves contest, the final contest on Rebrick. Here are some reference images of the real castle:

    Thanks! I wouldn't call that a flaw since it served a purpose in the plot. Besides, Bomb Voyage also got away in the first one.

    Let’s See Your Hogwarts Castle Displays

    Nice idea for a topic! Most of my HP sets aren't on display, or even assembled. The only ones I have on display are the last wave of minifigs and the accompanying Hogwarts castle. There are some windows missing on the right because I needed them for a MOC. Just imagine it's battle damage. Harry Potter Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr

    Thanks! Glad you like them. Yeah, the third one is pretty lame. I actually made that one quite a while ago, but never bothered to post it since it's not that great, but I figured why not. Same. Which is why I haven't been around here much lately.

    It's been a long time since anything has been posted here. It seems there has been a lot of negativity on this forum and the Star Wars fandom in general lately, so in an attempt to revive this thread and bring a sense of humor back into this community, here are some new funnies.

    Does Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales count? I guess the Creative Storybook is more of a tribute to the author himself than a representation of his works, although the swan is clearly at least a reference to The Ugly Duckling. Sorry, no offense to any Galidor fans out there. Most of the episodes can be found on YouTube, but be warned: It's even worse than you remember, so watch at your own risk:

    Star Wars

    @STARHAWK This guy is clearly just being overly dramatic for entertainment and judging by the comments, this is not the first time he has thrown a toy away in his videos. This is nothing to get worked up about or uncommon for a YouTube video. He's just being edgy to get views and by pointing everyone to the video, you're just giving him what he wants. At the time of this writing, the video has 1.6k likes and only 44 dislikes, so at this rate I don't think you're gonna achieve your goal anyway. That said, the video was indeed unpleasant to watch, even for someone like me who didn't like the movie and the sets either, He is clearly trying to be funny, whether he means what he says or not, but it just comes across as super whiny, and seeing a Lego set getting thrown away and stomped on is painful, even if he was just acting.

    In the Lego episode of The Toys That Made Us, David C. Robertson says that Lego commissioned the TV show, and on Brickipedia it says that Lego partially funded it (although no source is sited for that info), so it does seem like they had some involvement in the production of the show, but it's debatable if that disqualifies it for this list. I'd say just leave it. I mean, it's Galidor. Who cares.
  14. I just saw The Incredible 2 last night (it was a bit difficult to find a showing that wasn't sold out) and it was great! The action and humor are on-Parr with the original, but the villain and story were a bit weak/predictable, so it's not as incredible as the first one, but still a lot of fun. It was great seeing Bob deal with parenting and bonding with his kids, but Jack-Jack definitely steals the show. I'm not sure how I feel about the short, Bao. It started out cute, but then it got kinda... weird. No. Otherwise they'd have announced his voice actor by now. What makes you think that he would? That wouldn't make any sense. I personally am not excited for this or any of these pointless remakes, but yeah, at least the visuals are nice in this one, which is no surprise coming from Burton. Then again, maybe I'm biased since I never liked Dumbo because the pink elephants scene gave me nightmares as a kid.

    Very handy list! I think for what you're trying to do, you got pretty much all of them, although I think it's safe to say that we can add Overwatch to that list as well. And just for format's sake, I would use single paragraphs, not double (shift+enter) or put them into a list format so that we don't have to scroll so much.
