I guess Neal Hallford was/will be there. Check out his "These Haunted Hills".

I thought this was Hela cool.
Is this supposed to be Flemeth, as she appears in Dragon Age: Inquisition? :?

Bought a new glove. Should be a snap!
That's quite a big glove. How are you supposed to put it on? ;)

:lol: I'm trying to think of all the things that could go wrong if this was real.

I've come up with nineteen so far. :P

All I care about is The Clone Wars season 7.

Yeah. Looks like he was there Friday (from that event).

Heh. You clearly don't go watch the Marvel movies? My description was a hint. It's the character HELA from the pages of THOR (as she also appeared, quite beautifully done) in the THOR: RAGNAROK movie. :)

It is real - well, the figures are. They're not out yet though.
I may (read: will) probably purchase these when they come out... if it's not fetching an insane price (as Sideshow often does) :x

These are pretty cool. I wouldn't have thought the show was on anyone's radar anymore.

Well, things like He-Man, She-Ra (which is getting a new cartoon), and all those 80's things are rounding back around (D&D with 5th Edition is probably at it's peak since 2nd Edition). So, I was surprised to see these - I am not surprised that they're making them, in hindsight. :)

I'm so torn on He-Man and She-Ra. The original stuff was "lightning in a bottle" that just worked for its time, but it's so difficult to go back and watch. Still, I'm in the camp that the new Voltron and Ducktales cartoons work 10x better than the originals because they've had time to grow, so I'll stay optimistic about the new She-Ra cartoons.
All I care about is The Clone Wars season 7.
Another one I'm torn on, because I assumed that "Revenge of the Sith" picks up where Season 6 ends and shows us how the Clone Wars end. And since "Rebels" followed up on the show's more popular characters, the only loose thread I can think of is "What happened to Jar Jar?"

Hey, I still have some of my original 2nd ed "complementary" books (not the source books, but the little side ones like "Arms and Equipment", "Ships and Sailing", "Guidebook to Villainy" - that sort of thing). Do they count? ;)

He got flushed into space like the shamelessly commercialistic turd that he is. :x

It's funny. I still rewatch He-Man (got them all on DVD). However, Thundercats (because of Snarf) is unwatchable. Snarf's pitch is just too high, and now sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

I do not like the new She-Ra animation from what I've seen of the preview, sadly. :(

I thought Rebels had a bunch of new characters, with some existing ones thrown in? (I've not watched it obviously)...

If you enjoy D&D, sure. :) I still use my old books and just convert what needs to be into 5th Edition.

It centers on a new cast, but since the show-runners previously worked on "Clone Wars", they used the new series to follow up on some of the CW characters, notably Ahsoka, Hondo, and Rex who eventually become semi-regular characters.

It'll be on DVD/Bluray eventually.
