Some great stories from a prop collector in this episode. I know a lot about Star Wars, canon, legends, games, making of, but there is a wealth of knowledge in this episode for some some facets of the original films that I know very little about. Props and filming locations, along with the stories behind them are a whole nother level of cool.
Relax. Reshoots are just a part of big budget business as usual. Everybody is loosing their minds over nothing. How many more Nerd shaking events need to happen before we all just sit back and not over react to every little nothing that happens in geekdom?
More and more, the internet is putting the FANATIC back into Fandom. Let’s all mellow out and enjoy what ever we get, or make something better.
We recently had a reveal of the new Red Tornado (August 1968) that will be appearing on the Supergirl TV show, airing on CBS soon. While they are both androids they are very different. For the new or casual viewer, that may be moot. All red skinned androids are the same to the non-geek public. I know, I am as shocked as you are that there are still some hold-outs to the Geek lifestyle. I can’t stress enough about the fact that this probably won’t be the final look for the Red Tornado. Pardon the pun but it just won’t fly with the community. The Vision (October 1968) was executed perfectly on the big screen, and while the screen may be smaller our expectations, as geeks, are not. Both have a long history, and both have a legacy that predates the characters themselves, one has been honored and we’ll soon see if the other follows suit.
Who else out there can’t wait to see this old/new character to take to the airwaves?
Please join me over on FaceBook. From comics to games to movies & TV and anything in between, if it is geek I share it. I post a lot of things there that I don’t have the time to talk about here. Come and share your geekness with me. I am not looking for a ton of “likes”, I am looking for quality interactions over quantity followers 🙂
Live Long, Prosper, and may the Force be with you.
