Nice looking comics! 😃

I’m a big fan of the Goodwin/Infantino collaboration in the late 70’s, and the Marvel covers in-general back then were simply amazing. Some people find them a little cheesy but I think they’re perfect for how SW was when it still had that pulpy Flash Gordon feel to it.

I’ve already collected all the Norwegian translations of the Goodwin/Infantino comics so starting this summer I’ve branched out to collecting the original American ones.

Yeah, I also enjoy G/I comics, they’re the best. What is the going rate for the old Marvel SW in the US? I know the first one has some value at least.

Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?
Time

yotsuya said:

I always assumed that Yoda knew Anakin because of his dialog in TESB. In TESB we learn the following, Yoda was a Jedi Master. He trained Obi-wan. He knew that Luke’s father was a powerful Jedi. He saw much anger in Luke, like his father (and then Obi-wan commented that he hadn’t been so different). In ROTJ, Yoda says there is another Skywalker (pending any new info in VIII or IX, that has been assumed to be Leia). So Yoda shows great familiarity with who Anakin was and is. It has never seemed far fetched that Anakin would have known him. His absence from any of Vader’s dialog has always indcated to me that he thought Yoda was dead - only Kenobi had been left to train Luke. The explaination I’ve always accepted, that I think was used in the EU, was that Yoda chose Dagobah because of the dark side cave (a place of evil it is) that could mask his presence. Someone posted above that Frank Oz always thought the character was more refined and on Dagobah in exile. Not only does that jive with the PT, but with what I had assumed prior to TPM.

Good post and I agree. And if Yoda knew Anakin he probably knew about the Emperor and his powers through Anakin. But I never got the impression that they had actually fought or even met.

I don’t remember how exactly the book went, but in ROTJ Vader and the Emperor found about Yoda in the throne room when Luke was there, IIRC. It’s been awhile since I read it but either Luke told them or they searched his thoughts.

4K restoration on Star Wars

I’m pretty sure R1 will get a re-release like TFA did anyways. It was in July when they announced Collector’s Edition last year.

I didn’t find a better topic already so I’ll post here.

I asked our national film institute about SW prints if they have any and I actually got pretty good info. They have two copies from SW that date before the 90s and at least one of them doesn’t have “ANH” in the beginning and colors are supposedly great, so they’re assuming it’s in Technicolor. They don’t have TESB at all but they do have four prints of ROTJ. Naturally they all are probably subtitled. Anyways, thought I shared this info with you. Would be interesting to hear from other countries do they still have copies.

Well that’s good news that they have two copies from before the 90’s of Star Wars. Did they specify which prints ROTJ was? But it’s unfortunate that they don’t have a copy of ESB.
Anyways thanks for checking in on that.

I’m assuming ROTJ ones were original, too, as we were talking only about the originals (well, at least I was, and they probably figured that out).

Nice find! I saw a film can that once held raw footage from The Shining fetch almost $1500 in an online auction last year.

Woah! Luckily this didn’t cost anywhere near that but then again, this held the print itself and not any production material. I have no clue what the value for this would actually even be but to me it’s priceless.

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread
Time

Yesterday I was wandering in the city and thought I’d go to an antique shop which specializes in pop antiques, americana, and all kinds of cool stuff - it’s probably the coolest shop I know but the prices are out there. Anyways, I went to see if they had anything new since I hadn’t been there for awhile. I stumbled on 35 mm film cases, there were probably only 20 of them. I thought “wouldn’t it be crazy if there was SW here… LOL” and skimmed them through. There was a couple from Telefon, a few with no titles, some 007 ripoff movie, and actually one from Close Encounters, and…

I almost jumped in the air and immediately asked who much the cases were. He made a call to the owner and SW was the most expensive of these, I made an offer and we made a deal. The guy said there were few others from SW but this was the last one, maybe they had all six? He didn’t seem to know any extra info on it, I might go back and ask the owner where they got these.

And yes, the case is empty. But still, this is probably my coolest find ever. There probably wasn’t many copies of the film floating around back then in my country, if there even was except this one. To think that this case contained the film when it first to came here is just cool. 😃

How do you post images on here?

The header comes down when you put your mouse in the top area of the site and after that it doesn’t go away. Using Firefox 54. Esc would help!

Okay guys, I feel as if I’ve come full circle since I created this thread, because I just finished playing through KOTOR (haven’t started the second one yet), and you know, I think my friend was right that it stacks up against the OT. I actually really loved it.

Glad you liked it! It really is there up there with the best. I know there has been praises for KOTOR II and it’s still a good game, but the ending just comes out of nowhere (I think they ran out of time to finish it). Other than the disappointing ending I don’t even remember the basic plot line for it, it wasn’t as cohesive as the first one.

I didn’t want to create a new thread for this, but now that you can enlarge images with the magnifying glass, after that it’s impossible to get back to the thread. There’s nothing to click, Esc does nothing, you can’t go back.

Star Wars Holiday Special Documentary
Time

kozak2000 said:

I just started a documentary on the “Star Wars Holiday Special” and was looking for Southern California fans (and non-fans) that were specifically upset about it, or have strong opinions about its existence.

Why they need to be specifically upset about it? I mean, it is what it is and it’s not great, but it was a product of it’s time and you can appreciate as what it is, even though it’s awful. It still has some great things like the cartoon and to see the whole cast and props etc.
