    Angry Star Wars Inc. is putting a bad taste in my mouth!

    This new fanclub change has pushed me over the edge!

    The prequels

    Peter Mayhew in Ep3 (dude, shut yer pie hole, we're all sick of listening to you, you dried up has been!)

    Charging to use StarWars.com

    The fanclub "change"

    not releasing the OT on DVD

    completely and utterly ruining the OT on the dvd that's due out in September by making MORE changes

    George Lucas

    Rick McCallum

    "Visual Effects" without a story/plot

    Ludicrous character names, ludicrous characters for that matter

    I know there's more but all I can see is RED

    It's like everyone's brain went out to lunch and never came back as soon as they started working on the prequels.

    Absolutely disgusting!

    I'm usually a pretty mellow, diplomatic, calm person but this is it for the new Star Wars Inc. Talk about ruining something that was once fantastic. I really wish I could curse right now because I've got a whole gene's length of nucleotides worth of bad words to say!!

    LFL SUCKS!!

    I agree with those ones , but not all of your suggestions , the fan club changes don't really affect me over in the UK .

    I'd also like to add:
    • Revealing Darth Vader's identity in Episode III
    • Bad casting for majority of the characters (but not all)
    • The Clone Wars cartoon
    PENDO!

    I understand how you guys feel. The whole "OT" vs "SE" debate and the DVD. We grew up loving these films a certain way. I understand maybe adding visual effects and all, but not scenes being changed. That is not how I remember them being made.

    ANother thing please watch the spoiler content.

    Wow Deoxy, that's a heck of a rant, commendable, and you didn't even MENTION what Hasbro's been pulling lately, or how Lego has put the brakes on. I agree with a lot of what you're saying, the way Lucas has been handling SW since the mid-90s has been appalling to me and the Hyperspace thing was close to the last straw, though this Fan Club/Hyperspace merger really makes me sick to my stomach, it's the biggest signpost of how Lucas sees the fans - walking cash machines that will swallow anything he stamps his "fantastico" upon.

    Did they cut off memberships right now or try to charge you guys for hyperspace? Or will they do that when your subscription is up?

    My subscription was up for renwal right when the changes were taking place. I sent in my check and have heard nothing back. I had to buy issue #75 on the news stand. I'm not even sure who I'm supposed to contact now so that I can find out what's happening with my status.

    Anyone have any advice they can give me?

    Yes, go to your bank and see if that check was cleared. If it was, then your in, if not contact the office and tell them to refund it.

    yeah, the uk fan club imo has always sucked big time anyway, which is why i let my membership lapse a couple of years ago .

    as for the clone wars cartoon, i have never seen it but i really don't like the style its done in.

    but in general, i agree that lucasfilm just sees us star wars fans as a walking cash cow. i too am starting to cut back on my figure buying. back in the 90's hasbro gave us perhaps three figures per month but now we seem to be looking at six to eight plus ultra figures plus new(?) vehicles every now and again and then we have the ultra expensive (in the uk anyway) 'vintage' figures which hasbro seem to be ramping up and warning us that there will be a limited run of these and when they are gone, they're gone... well i have reached the point where i just can't afford it all any more and thus my collection is lapsing, which is a shame having spent the last nine years building it up.

    and what with hyperspace and building that into the new american fan club membership i just get the feeling that lucas is just out to screw as much money from star wars fans as he can which makes me feel sad
