        Gotta say, this comes as a bit of a surprise. Any information beyond "we're closing in two days"? Between this and the lack of a Hall H panel at Comic-Con, if I didn't know better, I'd think Lucasfilm was in financial trouble.

        They're in financial trouble so they shut down a store, which would be making them money? How does that make sense? Chux's good-ol' conspiracy theories aside, this is bizarre. I wonder what they'll do with the merchandise that's left over?

        Wow, that's crazy. I didn't order much from SWS, but they had some stuff I couldn't get anywhere else. Now what? And Chux, don't forget that they also closed down the fan club as well! And I just read that they're closing down SW Galaxies this year too. What is going on?!? Are we seeing a repeat of how it went to pieces in '85?

        I assume they're closing down SW Galaxies to make way for The Old Republic, no?

        SOE and LFL agreed to it, and since Sony there isn't part of SW:TOR, I don't see why they'd be so thrilled to make way for TOR. Plus, TOR is in an entirely different era, it's not like they can't coexist. But the reality seems to be that the very announcement of TOR was the death mark for Galaxies, since it was already suffering dwindling interest.

        It seems to me they are simply changing their marketing model to a more efficient method. "We are hard at work on finding new ways to showcase Star Wars merchandise"

        JJL, I said, "If I didn't know better...." Usually stores close down when they're not doing well. See: Circuit City, CompUSA, Mervyn's, KB Toys, and (soon, maybe even this week) Borders.

        Just seems extremely odd to suddenly shut down with two (weekend) days' notice.

      No Clone Wars forum? Who wishes more?

      I still want more Clone Wars figures in the animated Style. I hope Hasbro will make these 3 3/4 inch figures.

      Stupid movie ideas

      I propose Brittany, Miley, and Madonna are cast in a musical remake of The Golden Girls.

      Still taking suggestions for a 4th cast member.

      Star Trek Beyond: the one where Kirk wears a leg holster and Star Lord's costume

      This movie is almost out and I cringe at thinking how bad it might be.

      Here is to hoping it is at least better then how awful I'm expecting

      What have you watched recently?

      I liked Open Range, though it is slow bike comparisons do something like Tombstone.

      I want to see The Jungle Book. My mom read that to me

      Open Range

      I think I would place this in my top five of all-time favorite Westerns.

      Rank the Hasbro Black Series 6-inch figures

      Poe is a third-tier pegwarmer at Target, but first or second at Walmarts around here, and I think also at TRU.

      I was on the fence about that

      Poe pegwarms?

      I'd actually buy a single Poe with the 2-pack head. But I'm indifferent to Nines and not a fan of a $40 price tag.
