Solo Teaser/Trailer

Recommended Posts

In my mind, here are the essentials of a complete Solo movie:

  • Han meets Chewie
  • Han meets Lando
  • Han wins Falcon off of Lando
  • Kessel Run

 

Jabba can be squeezed in at any moment.

Just sad how our expectations have fallen. Being old enough to remember the huge buzz of the first and second ones, even if the new films were truly excellent they would still be lost among the tide of other offerings that appear every month.

Many years ago some SW art trading cards came out (Visions perhaps??). Anyways, the artists, some known some not using their talent showcasing some of the SW Universe. There is one in the set of Han's hands & Chewie's chest in the background. It shows Han burning his Imperial ID. That picture has always stuck with me. Funny if I don't see it in this movie I'll think it was left out. :lol:

Hard to argue with that. I was only 4 years old when Star Wars came out so don't really remember the hype over it but was old enough to be into it by ROTJ. I honestly don't think we could repeat that feeling nowadays. I'll be content if this turns out as good as Rogue One.

As long as this movie isn't full of plot holes and poorly developed characters, i'll be happy

 

and it's sad when THAT is what makes me satisfied with a star wars movie now

Regarding Ep.IV New Hope, originally there wasn't much hype prior to its release outside of scifi circles. It opened on only a few dozen screens. Within weeks, it exploded into a sleeper blockbuster.

 

Movies of the era like Star Trek the Motion Picture and Superman would've had a lot more hype in comparison.

Well you are asking an awful lot of Hollywood writers. ::D:

That pretty much defined Star Wars movies from the get go. 

SW:ANH isn't really any better than the others in terms of that.

i at least could enjoy SW:ANH despite its flaws and at least Empire Strikes Back gave character development and interesting story mechanics. I cannot say the same for  Force Awakens or Last Jedi, which i consider terrible from start to finish, from story to characters *shrug

I would prefer that they weren’t making ‘prequel character movies’ but as they are I’m prepared to get behind it.

The main issue for me is that since I was a boy I’ve been conjuring Star Wars  history with my imagination. So I know what I think the Kessel Run was and how Han and Chewie met...and so on. I like that people were left to fill in the gaps for themselves.

When you understand how everything works then everything starts to lose its magic (see the Force and medicloriens -sp-)

I think Prequels wind up being attractive to writers (and in Hollywood, producers) because a lot of times it's easier to write "how we got to the start of the movie/book" than it is to write "where do we go from here, now that we have a happy ending?"

      Assembly Required is a feature film about the world of gaming. On Kickstarter now http://kck.st/2La7UCY - 90% FUNDED 
       

       
      Lifelong gamers and brothers Dore and Dante Harbridge Robinson have quit their jobs as VFX artists to bring to life a comedy feature film all about the world of gaming. Assembly Required tells the story of Theo, a modern day Viking warrior who is also a passionate wargamer. His one regret is losing touch with his childhood gaming group. By chance, years later they all meet in a field. Whilst Theo has honed his skills on the tabletop and become a master with a cardboard sword, his old friends have entered the very real underworld of crime. Genuinely impressed by his sword wielding abilities they want Theo involved in their latest heist! But what does Theo want?
      The movie is on Kickstarter Now, ending 15th July. Packed with rewards including exclusive miniatures and a one time opportunity to join the cast and act in a massive wargaming film!
       
      The film is being supported by Weta Workshop Lord of the Rings sculptor Gary Hunt, and the Nova Open.

      A friend of mine gave this to me to paint 
      It's the first time working with a 3d printed figure.
        I wasn't sure if it would take paint or if I should smooth it out. 
        This is what it looks like now still working on it

      Our next Kickstarter T-Shirt is ORIGINAL TRILOGY: Est. 1977. True Jedis know true quality. It is elegant apparel for a more civilized age. Wear. Or wear not. There is no try on. You can't strike a true original down, for it will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. The Force of original fashion will be with you. Always. Some may call you a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder, but when it comes to a true original, they say, "I love it." We know. When this shirt you wear, the last word in fashion you will be. Fashion Force will run strong in you with this. Pass on what you have learned. Frills. Hmph. Excess. A Jedi craves not these things. This shirt may not look like much to some, but it's got it where it counts, kid.
       
       
      I'm in for one right now, but may add another, because this one is... just right...

      It's not that I haven't been painting, I just haven't been posting.  I've actually completed some 40% of the Imperial Assault line since I started (focusing on what the Imperial player owns first).
       
      Ok, not much to say here.  Just the basics, really: Rainy Grey, Ghost White, and Pure White. Pure Black where needed.  The shields were done with the silver metallic triads (one triad per group).  The batons were a silver metallic triad and the gun metal metallics.  Not a lot of variety, but enough to spot the difference on the table.  I've thought about going back after the visor lenses with some Adamantium Black, but somehow that sounds like too much work and I'm eager to be done with the troopers.  So many troopers.  Sooo much white.
       
      I'm planning on continuing the hashes on all the bases--With a few exceptions, you really don't see many situations where you'll have anything more than the regular unit and the elite.  So paint one set of white marks on the regular and a set of red marks on the elites!  Unique characters get a solid base without a mark.
       
      @Cyradis, I know the pictures aren't great, but I used the masking tape for the marks on the bases.  I'd say it worked reasonably well, and came up easily even after making sure I had decent adhesion.  I reused the same few pieces for each base, so there's some durability there.  I would note, however, that the tape will work better if you have a large-ish and flat-ish area in which to work.  The tape went down easily, pulled up easily, and provided a reasonable edge.  Yes, I could clean it up a little, but at 3' away the little smudges aren't very visible.
       
      My next batch of minis will have something a little more suitable for testing the tape.  I've got a couple Dewbacks that will need more than just the standard dull green.

      My oldest son loves Star Wars probably more than I do. He has 3 children - a girl and a set of twins (girl and boy). When my kids were little, every year they received an ornament in their stocking. I thought that when they grew up and flew the nest, they would have some ornaments for their own Christmas trees. I decided to do the same for my grandkids and decided to make ornaments using the Mystic Warriors from Hasslefree. I am overall happy with how they turned out.

      There is no photo of "Leia" in the ornament yet as I haven't put her in it!)
