Kennedy’s comments make it sound 100% certain that the OUT is never coming.

I just can’t wrap mt head around this translation of what was said. All she said was that she wouldn’t make further changes to the SE. It’s a totally different subject. What am I missing?

Some long time users have no avatar either. 😉

Hmm… well, I just can’t trust a faceless account.
I was very happy to see Disco_Lobot add one, as I liked the posts, but couldn’t handle the blank face.

Wish my old idea of generic default trooper avatars had been taken up.

Why was it shot down?

I was among the no avatar users for a while as well

But now you have one. And now you’re my friend.
Was it worth it?
(say “Yes” or don’t answer at all. I can’t take the rejection.)

What’s with all the creeps with no avatars all of a sudden? People who only sign up to ask for spleen invites take the time to set up an avatar, but now some people who are joining in on conversations can’t be bothered?

The Unofficial Complete REVISITED SAGA Ideas and Random Discussion Thread
Time

We have no idea how long it took the DS to reach Yavin.
There was obviously some time that passed as the Rebels had to study the DS plans to find the flaw. Also, Luke was fitted with a flight suit, helmet and assigned to a group and given a call sign. And I’d like to think he had some time in an x-wing cockpit to see how the controls worked (how to access the targeting computer, locking/unlocking the s-foils, switching from lasers to missiles, ect.) before taking off. So, we know that some time has passed since they arrived. In my head, it was 2 or 3 days. And the DS moves slow.

Eating goodies made with it is a much more intense feeling than you get from smoking. I find a smoke to be much more relaxing and eating brownies more of a “trip”.

Now i love that we have the Despecialized Edition, But i wish we had a Harmys Special Edition with the Good things that were added/fixed.

You can make a fanedit yourself, which is what I’m doing. Not everyone will agree on which changes are good and which are bad though.

Speaking of which, I agree with most of your list, but why do you think the extended rancor scene is good? It’s repetitive, since you already get to see the same **** going on in the scene with Luke and the guard. The off-camera screams in the original were enough to cue in the audience that something bad happened to people who fall down there. It also built suspense towards what Luke was up against, when that big giant metal door slowly opens and reveals the Rancor. The SE change is a terrible editing mistake.

If I had the talent and know I would attempt it lol. But sadly I do not have any knowledge to do this. Nor do I have the proper equipment or software.

I liked the Raincore scene because it showed what happened to Oola. And I liked seeing that happen. But honestly its on there because its one i loved as a kid, even thought i know its a bit repetitive.

But it still doesn’t show what happened to her anymore than the original edit does. We see her in the pit for a couple of shots that ruin the original flow, but her demise is still off screen. (if ya like it, that’s fine, I’m just sayin’)
Also, it’s Rancor. Not Raincore.

What a waste of a villain.

What is he supposed to be anyway? A new kind of cyborg consisting of a droid enhanced by a human lung? Is the lung the force bearer?

He’s a Kaleesh

A what?

The original Battlestar Galactica is coming to METV on Super Sci-Fi Saturday Nights!
I am pleased!

Why would you want to watch them chopped up to squeeze in more commercials?

I didn’t know that METV did that and I don’t like the show enough to care. It’s joining a great line up of shows. It’s the only block of TV I watch.

Ah orange, it’s King’s day tomorrow in Holland. Everything will be orange, as the our royal family is known as the house of Orange. It is true! They are originally from the town called Orange in France. It’s great!

I went to the Klock Rock Orange festival in 2014. Lot’s of great bands and people.
Fun fun fun!

Is that from RotS or one of the animated shows? The guy looks too detailed to be from the cartoons, but everything else looks like it is.

Anybody else wonder if they’re holding out until they can present the SE’s in the same picture quality as the restored OUT? Legacy Edition easily makes the current bluray SE’s look awful.
