    Rumor? Disney decides to phase Slave Leia out.

    Not quite certain where to post this discussion as pretty much everything Star Wars from here on out would be affected (comics, novels, toys, statues, etc.), but if the story being run over at IGN proves to be true it means Disney will no longer allow Slave Leia to be referenced or made in any shape or form of future media or merchandise from this point forward.

    So, the next ROJ Blu-Ray will have Leia chained as a bounty hunter or something?

    That's the sort of thing that worries me, there's a lot of soft censorship and now we have this.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I'm assuming dismemberment with light sabers will still be OK. Less disturbing than the female body...

    I think this is a false story.
    But if I wanted to start new rumors, I would suggest a sell out to product placement will now require all droids to feature the Verizon logo.

    All Motorola Droid phones have the Lucasfilm branding somewhere because Motorola licensed the name "Droid" from LFL.

    There's some new collector's pack with non poseable figurines from all the movies such that it includes General Grievous and Ray besides Darth Vader. The figure of Leia is in her slave outfit.

    I start to get angry with these what's decent for society and children questions. I am the type who is of a mindset to teach children about cannibalism necrophilia bestiality and everything less and let them decide for themselves. From that perspective, the Breaking Bad action figures that include blue meth - fake - and playboy Marvel action figures are all fine. Kids in the majority will choose Batman - as well a lot of adults. I don't think we need prudes in the society to tell us all what our choices have to be. If it were up to me, I'd loosen all the controls about language on our boards here. On transformers world 2005 site they allow language. I don't know if I would not keep restrictions on pornography however - as this site is designed to represent Star Wars and there are plenty of other sites for other subject matter. Naturally that begs the question of whether your membership gets revoked if you post Star Wars pictures on penthouses website?

    Although we don't use it a lot come I love it that the rancor pit was made here to continue to allow for religious and political discussions. That is very progressive of the site.

    By the same token, I don't know if people like to make friends with other people who may be perverted uncertain kinds of sites, where they would also enjoy sports and Star Wars discussion boards? But who knows?

    The other day I was fighting with the moderator on the cannibal boards because I wanted a forum for people sniffing and eating their action figures. I argued that Star Wars figures have arms and legs just like the real people we murder and eat. When a few more of the cannibals are released from the mental institution they said they would take my issue under advisement. Thus there is hope.

    In light of all this I don't see how Slave Leia has done harm to our community or larger society. In 1997 she was the most sought-after action figure. And there is no truth to curtailing sales of her like that now. Only Leia and Ray are going to be represented differently - as is Captain Phasma, so I don't think we will need Return of the Jedi versions of Leia for a while.

    In the action figure world I hope that when the young Han Solo origins movie comes out, Jabba the Hutt will be in it, and figures will be marketed that pertain to not only that movie but Return of the Jedi - hence we see Slave Leia again - and a super sale barge could be possible!

    I find it very hard to believe that the rumor is true when Disney allowed this product to be sold at Disney World:
