The left seat is the pilot's seat in aircraft except helicopters and I'd always got the impression that Han was in control. I suppose that doesn't have to mean anything about ownership or command, it could simply be that Chewie is expert at navigation/whatever while Han and Rey are both good at actual ship control.

This reminded me of a long standing thing that's drove me nuts: All the way back to episode 4, we've never see any kind of yolk/stick/whatever in the Falcon. They seem to be able to do all these amazing maneuvers with the equivalent of a keyboard.

I guess I always assumed Chewy was the copilot/navigator? Then I got to thinking, as far as episode 8, it would be weird to have Luke (who's such a great pilot) to pilot the Falcon over Rey...

I wonder if something like this would have the answers?

Yes but she was the pilot, as if she just automatically becomes Chewie's boss because of space racism holding wookies back :-) Why was she not the co-pilot? As yet unspecified family ties to Han? Or is this just not how Millennium Falcons work?

I assumed it more along the lines of:

Rey: I need to find Luke.
Chewy: RAR RAR! ("I gotta ship, let's roll.")

Honestly, your conversation was the first time I ever questioned who now owned the Falcon. I didn't think it was discussed either way. Is it because she's sitting on stage left (screen right)?

"Extremist." God knows when people having equal rights became extremist.

If you think the SJWs want equal rights, I've got a bridge to sell you. It's all about the elimination of men.

When you say "the SJWs", who specifically do you mean? What is your definition of an SJW?


Remember, you're engaging crazy here. And feeding it.

My kids used to have the

Y-wing + TIE fighter set

It was pretty awesome - I can definitely see the appeal. I bet the Falcon set is really cool.

That's a nice one!



i might be going down the Dark Side of lego myself. i bought the b-wing set from target over the holidays, been eyeing the millennium falcon and poe's xwing set ever since. of course having a seven year old tornado of a nephew visit every weekend is not helpful. the bwing has already been blown to kingdom come by SSD Kyle and i doubt i could put it back together again.

FYI, I saw the other day there's supposed to be a traditional blue on grey xwing coming out, to complement Poe's. I couldn't really get into the orange on black, after being a fan of the original xwings (which now are high dollar on the reseller market).

Incredibly retarded.

Now I get Cutter's moments when he goes 'off the rails' but really wtf happened to you?

Well, if y'all can not see how $199 tickets and "virtual tickets" to an ADVERTISING EVENT (where Blizz should be paying YOU for attendance and not the other way around) are completely incredibly fucking RETARDED beyond any recognition then I really don't know what to say...

Why do people pay money to be swamped with commercials, merchandise and bullshit? It's unbelievable.

Wow...the people that pay for and watch football, basketball, golf, or any other number of sports in person or online would easily say "CJ Parker "incredibly fucking RETARDED."

That being said, watch Rey's fight with Ben and you will see that she really has no skill in 1h combat beyond thrust thrust thrust.

Yeah, I'm sure that's intentional. Even going back to Empire, Lucas said he wanted the Luke vs Vader fight to look/feel like a very inexperienced jedi vs a very tried, old opponent. It's not supposed to feel like people at the top of their game, it's about a lack of training, and how that shows in battle.

Never mind Star Wars lego, nin, you should be opening your wallet for these!:

Set #1

Set #2

I had to pose for hours for the second one, it was torture!

That second ones awesome, but just a tad too big for me, space wise.

So far I have a Falcon, the Ghost/Phantom, an AT-AT, Rey's speeder, and a speeder bike set. (I'm sure Blue is looking at his amazon list and wondering WTF is going on.)

I've been hanging out at https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/ the last few weeks, and the community there is really amazing. Not only do folks share their custom designs, but almost everyone that does includes a parts list and assembly instructions. All sorts of stuff I'd never guess, with instructions! Really cool community!

I know a lot of folks thought Rey was "Mary Sue" (had never even heard of this term before this movie), but I didn't even notice it, or particularly care if she really is a bad ass. You know, force and all.

I'd not heard of that phrase until the movie, either. I thought she was fantastic, and the way she and Finn got along was so much fun to watch.

I have not been this excited for Star Wars since I was a kid. I just got Force Awakens on bluray and it was still awesome the second time around, and I actually want to watch it again. Now Rogue One? Awesome!

I think you mean Blu-Rey!

I'm going to warn you all now: Do not start down the road of collecting Star Wars lego sets. My wallet has paid the price... (also, that means more for me).

Star Wars: Mockingjay

Disney is obviously pushing a strong female as the main character to broaden the audience and make more money but this is getting to the point of pandering.


I don't think I could care less it's a woman lead. As long as it's a cool story with Star Wars action, I'm all over it.

And thou shall not speak ill of Rey!

I'm glad they're fixing Minsc, as I think I found that a lot more distressing than a shopkeeper. But I still feel like it was pretty ham handed.

Rogue One trailer! Oh Em Gee! Dance

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked. I'm still a little skeptical of Disney pulling this off every year, so I went in with low expectations. But that trailer far exceeded it.

Was also wondering if they were really going to make December, as before now, we'd not seen any footage.
