    Single Pane Star Wars Funnies

    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. I hope you like them. [/url ]Houdini! by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Jek Porgins by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Voice Mates by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr

    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.
  5. 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.
  7. True, which is another thing that irks me a bit about that trailer. The only way I can explain that is that this is because these are not the original Disney princesses, but rather just online representations of them who have developed their own personalities (just like how every Buzz Lightyear toy in Toy Story is a representation of the original TV show Buzz Lightyear who all eventually develop their own personalities).
  8. First full trailer! That princesses scene is pretty neat. Seeing them all together, poking fun at their own tropes, and being rendered in the Frozen/Tangled CG style is great. However, I'm not really sold on this movie yet. We have yet to see a shred of actual plot, so right now it just seems like the movie is just shoving as many pop culture references in our faces as possible, and this trailer feels more like a giant ad for Oh My Disney than anything else.

    Avengers/Stark Tower

    No, sorry, I'm having trouble generating the instructions as well. Perhaps try using Blueprint to generate them.
  10. Don't you mean bouncing corpse? LOL I think it looks cute. Unoriginal, just like most things that Disney is putting out these days, but cute. Ah, excellent news. I was worried what was going to happen after Gigantic got cancelled. This actually sounds pretty awesome and more intriguing than Gigantic, so I'm excited.

    Star Wars

    Relax, dude, it's just a generalized expression. I'm sure there are people out there that did want to see a Han Solo movie and that's fine, but if you're so sick of hearing people say they didn't, then clearly many fans (if not most) don't care about Han's origins. The fact of the matter is that it doesn't matter how exactly he met Lando and Chewie or how he made the Kessel run or whatever. We know that he did, and that's all we need to know to understand his character, so unless the movie tells us something significant about him that we didn't know before, there is no point in this movie existing other than for the audience to kill a few hours and for Disney to make money. Again, I haven't seen the movie, so I could be wrong, but from the reviews I've seen, there don't seem to be any big revelations about Han's character that justify this movie's existence. If you are one of the people who wanted to see this film and were satisfied by it, great. But don't go attacking others who aren't. It is this kind of hateful responses from people defending the latest movies that helped those of us who didn't enjoy them get embittered towards this franchise and the rest of the fandom. Are we not allowed to have critical thoughts and our own opinion? Can't we have a civilized conversation about this franchise that we're all passionate about without calling names or throwing around nonsensical phrases like "no one hates Star Wars more than Star Wars fans?" I'm not sure if you are correct about your assumptions about what fans want. Perhaps this is what people who liked TFA, but didn't like TLJ wanted, but for someone like me who didn't like either, this is exactly the opposite of what I want. That's precisely what I didn't like about TFA, that it was just a poor reenactment of ANH. TLJ tried to break free of that mold, but in my humble opinion it failed because Rey and Kylo still act just like Luke and Vader while Luke himself didn't act like himself at all. But that's just my opinion.

    Star Wars

    Not surprising at all. For me, it's a bit of both. To say that I've been disappointed with the new trilogy as well as Rogue One would be an understatement and I'm clearly not the only one. Disney has been massively mishandling the franchise from the start in my opinion as they're playing it too safe for the most part by rehashing stories and characters we already know and pumping out too many of these movies. It's quantity over quality and no respect to the fans in favor of making money. If they want to make a bunch of "Star Wars Stories", at least they could make ones that people actually want to see and tell us NEW stories instead of what we pretty much already know. The fact that the Lego sets keep being rehashes for the most part too doesn't help. I have not seen Solo and have no interest to do so until it comes to Netflix or TV and morbid curiosity gets the better of me, but from what I hear it's just an average heist movie in the SW universe with a bunch of fan service and little to no surprises, and that's arguably the worst thing you could do to a franchise like SW - to make it mediocre and pandering. TLJ was bad, but at least it tried to take risks. No one asked for a Han Solo movie, especially not one without Ford, and no one cares how he met Chewie and Lando or how he did the Kessel run, etc., so I think Solo probably would have been received better if it wasn't about Han & friends at all and instead featured a completely new crew of smugglers with an original story. I'm not excited at all for the Boba Fett movie (that character has always been overhyped anyway). The only "solo" movies that I'd be somewhat interested to see would be an Obi-Wan or a Darth Maul movie with the original actors reprising their roles from the prequels, but aside from those, I just want them to tell stories that are completely unconnected to the main series. At this point, I think it might be best if the Mouse pulls a Thanos on Kathleen Kennedy and replaces her with someone who actually understands what makes Star Wars so great and that if they want this franchise to be successful in the long term, they need to slow down and tell good, original stories. Hopefully the poor performance of Solo will give them the motivation they need to start course-correcting.

    I really want Lego VR to become a thing

    I absolutely agree! As you said, this would be the closest we will ever get to fulfilling our dream of building with an endless supply of bricks and a great use of VR! I have an HTC Vive and have been looking for such a game, but sadly I haven't found one. The closest thing we have right now is Minecraft for VR/AR and similar apps such as 3D Sunshine, but nothing actually resembling Lego bricks. I have actually been tinkering with Unity and learning how to use it to develop VR games, and if I ever become comfortable enough with it to create my own game, this will be one of the first projects I will attempt to do. However, I still have a lot to learn before I get there, so don't expect anything from me anytime soon. Hopefully TLG will soon finally adopt this technology and make an official app themselves, even though most of their target demographic probably doesn't have a VR headset. Something as simple as adding a VR mode for LEGO Worlds would be a great start!

    Velma shouldn't be too hard to make yourself with the parts from that Go Brick Me set. As for Voltron, I like the idea. Something like this:
