  1. 4-5 years is a long time to wait for another Star Wars game when the hype is so strong at the moment.

    Marvel Super Heroes Wishlists

    I'd really love to see a Young Avengers set with Kate, Wiccan, Hulking and America. Kamala Khan badly needs to appear somewhere too. Combine her with Nova, Miles, Iron Man and Thor and we could have a version of the new Avengers line up.

    Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    Pretty disappointed with Ultimate Spider-Woman. Considering the Spider-verse event and all the relevant characters they could have gone with, Gwen, Silk, Anya, Jessica Drew (the proper version).. even Mayday, they went with the one who was never particular popular and hasn't appeared in anything for years. Really puzzling choice there.

    Will we get a LEGO Rebells Game

    I'd say it's pretty much inevitable. Hopefully it focuses more on the actual Rebels series than the Clone Wars game did on the Clone Wars though. It was pretty disappointing to see so many of the unlockables just be characters from the original movies, when they were missing many of the fan favourite characters who appeared through the series. It was pretty obvious they were afraid the Clone Wars licence alone wouldn't carry the game.

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    Remember these are prelims. Jaba was quite clearly unpainted and Oola was most likely just a photoshopped Aayla Scura. That doesn't mean the final version will be like that, it's just the closest thing they had to demonstrate what the set will look like. I'm not super excited about any of these sets though, the Palace will be a bit too far out of my price range and I thought Old Republic was a plain awful game. The Skiff seems like a good way to finally get a Jedi Luke though (and Boba Fett, for those who don't have him) and at this point I feel I have to own all of the Jedi Starfighters

    Star Wars

    I want to know who's idea it was for the Lux character. In my opinion, that turned Ahsoka from being a strong, independent jedi, into the typical teen girl squad thing. It really hurt her character and the show. Maybe, it's what the fans wanted, I don't know, but that's when I knew it was time for me to stop watching.

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    How about a screenshot from the actual game, rather than a pre-rendered trailer? I can definitely see why the minifigs would be TCW style.

    LOTR & The Hobbit 2012

    Well, this is more or less confirmed now. Lego Batman 2 and the Hobbit videogames confirmed for 2012

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    While I agree that this sort of thing shouldn't be discussed in this topic, period.. I think it's incredibly hypocritical for you to try and guide the discussion back on track, but then leave a snarky comment about the Clone Wars at the end any way. That doesn't exactly set a good example and you've always been one of the biggest offenders for knocking the show. If you don't like it, fine, but lets discuss these sets and like you said, leave opinions like this out of it. It's unnecessary and just creates a very hostile atmosphere. I don't enjoy posting here any more, and I know many others feel the same.

    LEGO Superheroes 2012 Rumours & Discussion

    These look amazing, I can't wait to see the actual sets. Might be enough to get me back into collecting, but it's the prices that have really drove me away and I don't see these being cheap. Still, I was very excited for the possibilities of getting Justice League sets (and obviously a videogame later on) but combining it with Marvel is the single most amazing thing they could have ever done. My only complaint is with Iron Man, what's with the freaky alien head? I guessed it's because he has a removable helmet, but couldn't it just look similar to the Clone Troopers? I'd prefer just to have a second head you could swap for if this is the only other option.

    LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

    Finally finished the game to 100%. It had some of the best levels from the Lego series.. but it skipped over a lot of episodes that could have made excellent episodes. I understand that they can only include so much, but it does feel like they got lazy and just decided to throw in a bunch of land battles instead of proper levels. They became very tiring by the end. I was also pretty disappointed by the lack of characters. The Complete Saga had practically everyone from the six movies playable, but here we seem to have a very small selection.. No Chuchi, Sugi or Embo? If they really had to skip them as levels, why couldn't they at least be characters? I do love the original movies, of course, but we already had three games based on those, I really think they should have left out the classic characters and included more from the Clone Wars. It's not the worst of the Lego games but it's pretty disappointing.

    Lego pirates of the Caribbean: The video Game

    I got an R2-D2 pen as a pre-order bonus. But that was just from a random UK website. It is a shame they never did anything special for the game, I was really expecting a collectors edition, after they did one for Harry Potter.

    Star Wars: OT vs. PT vs. TCW

    I'm not going to get into any big arguments on the matter, but I do think the PT was handled very badly. From what I hear, they started filming the Phantom Menace right after George finished the first draft and it really shows. I think the reason that the Clone Wars show has been much better is because George himself has less to do with production.. He comes up with many of the stories and characters but leaves it to others to flesh them out, write the scripts and direct them. Some people are much too hard on George Lucas, he certain deserves respect for what he does but I do feel he should have been pushed more to the side when filming the prequel movies and let others take over to develop things a lot more. Similarly, I think Star Trek became a lot better when the original creator of that became less involved in production. Seeing Anakin as a boy on Tatooine for a whole movie seemed unnecessary, at most I think it could have been handled with a flash back and had the rest of the movie focusing on the build up the Clone Wars. Then with Episode 2 perhaps showing some of the more important events from those wars and exactly why they were so terrible. The EU I feel can be mostly ignored. The bad by far outweighs anything good that comes from it and the sheer volume of different books and writers makes it impossible for anyone to keep track of.. much of the EU often contradicts itself and I think the fact people are angry when TCW does this, is just preposterous. I'm not saying you can't enjoy it, there are certain parts of the EU that even I love.. but I don't understand why people get so bent out of shape when something a random author wrote 10 years ago, with no contact or discussion with George Lucas, is ignored by the official sources.

    LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

    The assault missions really aren't very difficult, especially once you have the multiplier bricks. I went through them all with a friend, basically all you need is an AT-TE and one of those electric tanks and you can completely obliterate everything in your path.. The AT-TE especially seems stupidly overpowered, being almost invincible.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars: season 3 discussion

    I think the argument of whether or not season 3 was better than 2 could go on for a very long time. Season 2 was mostly great, it was almost all very good episodes. Season 3 had a good start with the first two episodes, but everything after that was pretty dull until we got to the Nightsisters. Personally, I think the episodes that were good in season 3 were amazingly good and completely outdid anything we had in the previous two seasons. The action was better, the stories were more mature and developed, there was more detail and thought put into everything.. It all seemed like a drastic step up, it's just a shame they focused on so many boring filler episodes at the beginning. The three on Mandalore in particular are amongst the worst in the series. I quite enjoyed the finale.. It wasn't as epic as Cad Bane or Boba Fett but it helped advance Ahsoka a bit more, her interaction with Anakin at the end was especially nice. We saw Anakin forming attachments to an almost obsessive level and Ahsoka has come a long way from the 'snippy' teenager we saw in the movie. I liked that he actually called her his Padawan, rather than Snips.. I think that's the first time he's really acknowledged her as that, other than when she's just being told off. Oh and bringing in Sugi and the Halo at the end there was great fan service!
