Glad you liked the article and glad things worked out with your boyfriend. Very Happy If anything this article proves that Adam's hair and make-up people on TFA should have won an award. I'm missing that perfectly coiffed hair in all TLJ marketing lol
@Tex

Yeah, he really looked like a prince JJ called him.
The new hair is bit too much of a grease ball for me. But it looks better in BTS shots than in the promo photos. Which is funny, because I love 80s music and at some point thought maybe they are going by the Bryan Ferry look.

My husband knows my head is in the GFFA most of the time and is ok with my Kylo fangirling. We've never talked about it out right, but he'll send me Kylo/Adam things he stumbles across online. He also realizes that SW means more to me than cute guys with lightsabers (ahem), so it's cool Cool

Ha! I mean, I can see how some people would be in to Star Wars for such reasons. Lucasfilm definitely knows how to fill the screen with eye candy. I don't think I'd bring up an infatuation with a fictional character on a first date, but then again, maybe it's best to lay out all your quirks up front Razz

Glad to see another Lost Stars fan!And yes Ciena is one of my favorite characters she's shown to be both compassionate and bad*** which is a huge plus since they usually try to write female characters to be all strong in a masculine way since they think having feminine characteristics makes women look we ask.Not the case with Ceina.She actually reminds me of Kylo in some ways particularly in her unwavering faith in the Empire.
Which Lost Stars character do you think will appear in Bloodline?I was thinking maybe Nash since they probably don't want to spoil what happens with Thane and Ciena.
@CienaRee
here is another one- I just finished Lost Stars and I loved it (tried to find a topic here to discuss it, but couldn't find one?) BUT I have to admit Ciena annoyed the hell out of me after a while. I wanted to slap her several times or throw a bucked of cold water on her...

Spoiler:
At first I admired how seriously she took her oath and honor- even if it was to the empire. But she witnessed so many wrongs, genocide and pure evil and she still stick to them? I stopped caring for her completely when she still stayed with the empire (or what was left) after the second Death Star was destroyed. The Emperor / Empire was dead- and she was ready to die for this idiots in the end? I was hoping Thane left her to die for good. Honor and duty are great virtues... but just to a certain point. And I totally disagree with her concept that you have to stick to an oath at all cost. That's just a big no for me. So I liked her about 2/3 of the book and then I wanted to kill her off myself Vader style. Thane on the other hand was adorable- hope to read about him in future novels and hope he ends up with a girl loving HIM more then some stupid oath or honor.

Not everything in here is accurate(kyber crystals aren't colourless; Luke's saber was changed green because it looked better against the scene backdrop in Han's rescue; Mace's saber was purple because Sam Jackson randomly picked that colour, etc, etc)
but a lot of the interpretations are very good and adds new layers to the iconic weapon.

When Lucas revamped the OT I wish he had done something like this for the Vader vs Obi Wan saber duel.

Hehe I would have never guessed Lord Vader had a bratty little sister? Thank goodness the Rebels didn't have to fight her or they would have got taken out quick.

Hi all, Is there another place to discuss canon comics? or is this it? If there is a better place for me to put this please let me know. Now more canon comics are out there could be more discussion about this.

 'DJ: Most Wanted'
I just wanted to say that I read the DJ comic the other day.. 'DJ: Most Wanted' - bit of a yawn... The only way it would be of interest is if DJ or canto bight returns in future content. It covers the immediate events leading up to his imprisonment in canto bight.

Anyone else read it? thoughts?
It seemed to me that 'Denel Strench' is an anagram for DJ's real name. He said it and then quickly corrected himself.. me thinks he gave something away there. Anyone good with anagrams? they make me dizzy...
Anyway the whole concept of DJ creating a fictional mysterious big bad and then having a cheesed off droid hijack this persona was an interesting turn of events. Maybe this is a tactic the rebels in IX could try to bring down the first order! Wink
Lastly, the story about people pretending to help the needy while secretly exploiting them was also an interesting addition!

Poe Dameron 24:Legend Found
Anyone else read this? thoughts?
poor LST! My goodness!
I was so sad to see Padme's dresses get tossed out into space! Nooo!!!!!

I especially wanted that flowing dress to survive but it looks like it is out of it's case, and going to drift off into space with no tracker. ummm unless the tracker is sown into the hem of the dress. whoooo.
I am hopeful that because the tracker was in the boxes - the squadron will at least find some of the dresses and reclaim them!

@Darth Dementor

Hi Darth Dementor, just wanted to say thanks for sharing this. I'm really glad I came across this!
As far as analysis goes this was done pretty well! I couldn't see any glaring factual errors. My only gripe would be the comment that Kylo 'pretended' to hand his light saber to Han. Not how I see it. But any interpretation with the ST is going to be impacted by the story being in it's infancy - seems this vid was made between TFA and TLJ. But most of the time the facts were accurate, and interpretation or analysis was presented as just that.
I'd love for them to update this after IX - or to hear their take on why the lightsaber split in TLJ. Something I've seen very few analyse. So much more analysis for why projection Luke projected the blue. ugh. But most of the time the facts were accurate, and interpretation or analysis was presented as just that. So I agree with you - this was really well done.

Regarding kyber crystals being colorless - the star wars databank confirms this:
"A lightsaber crystal is colorless until first attuned and connected to a Jedi -- at which times it glows either blue or green, or in some rare instances, another shade. From that point on, it retains that hue."
It may be that in ROTJ this was not yet canon, and this has been incorporated in later.. and as you say, initially Luke had green because it was pretty. lol. thanks again!

Bloody hail even though this is a fan made short film it is highly impressive!


Plus it would be interesting seeing an actual blind Jedi in action; wielding a light saber.

@Darth Dementor

Nice, indeed! Can we have this lady as a KOR in 9 Smile Well, you have Kanan as a blind Jedi and that’s whom my mind went to as soon as I saw the young lady’s eyes. Ok, it’s a cartoon character, but still, it gives you a good idea of how a blind Jedi can fight.

EDIT

I love the video you posted on Anakin’s lightsaber. I LOLed a few times. And it’s true that if you see the story through that poor lightsaber’s “eyes”, no wonder it told both Rey and Ben to kiss its a*** and broke in two. Enough already!

I hate Amazon EU right now- why do I had to wait till Thursday? It's so hard not to be spoiled, but I really don't want to be this time.

It did took away some of the fun reading TLJ novelization knowing almost everything meaningful beforehand.

No Twitter, No Tumblr- thank the force it's nice weather, so I gonna stay outside with the dogs instead Approves

@Night Huntress - hang in there Night Huntress! You can do it! Very Happy

In my time zone it's now the 18th.. anyone subscribed to Marvel and getting the new Poe Dameron comic (26) today?

I noticed the cover for Poe Dameron 27 has Poe recounting events from TFA - the resistance vs the first order on Takodana from the looks of it - still on the MF.

I guess these comics are framed as Poe recounting what happened from finding out LST wants him to come pick up a map to LS... and continues on in 27 to tell of how he knew to come to Takodana (I read somewhere the droid spy network had seen BB8 and clued in the resistance but I think this was left unanswered in the movie.. but then.. maybe I'm getting confused. lol. quite possible.). I'm guessing from the lower half of the cover that comic 27 covers up to the events of Poe attacking starkiller base.
edited to add:  the star killer fight is in 28... I thought Poe's actions in that battle were a bit of a yawn.. so hopefully the comic will make it more interesting. lol.
Here's the cover:


LOL at all the online articles celebrating that we finally get to see this friendship that we've all been (apparently) longing to see for the first two movies. lol.  I've not been hankering for Poe/Rey/Finn friendship time at all! lol. it's amazing how differently we can all see this trilogy!

Now I think about it - I REALLY hope we see Poe and Finn talk about the slaughter of the Jakku village - I want to see how Rey deals with what she learns about Kylo/Ben!
And.. how she responds to them about it!!! Whoooo suspense!
bye!

Poe recalling his experience with Kylo to Rey and Finn, I dont have the comic but apparently there was no reaction from Rey (ofc as that would be stepping on the toes of ep 9)

I believe shes talking about Luke at the bottom, nice shot of the broken saber.

It makes sense to me for the kyber crystal to be broken. Their parting was so "traumatic" to the Force, for lack of a better word, that the strongest, most sacred manifestation of the Force was broken by them. The Force didn't favor either one, and IMO, they will "heal" it and bring it back together in IX.

FWIW, Jason Fry's TLJ novelization also stated that the crystal was broken in two.

And sorry but the fact that they drew Poe as if he was a divorced father of four with two mortgages doesn't help matters with any supposed ReyPoe vibes. No offense to any ReyPoe friends though.

Lol! You put it perfectly! He's showing off about piloting skills when those 2 mortgages and 4 kids force him to drive a 92 Ford Escort. Very Happy
