The Rebels Clip That Broke Don

We’ve all had those moments, those defining moments where our open-minded approach to any one thing quickly turns into an opinion and we turn our backs to that thing. In this case, the thing in question is Rebels, and that moment is the clip above. This was the clip that turned Don Solo against the show. I was already trepidatious about the show, but what the clip did for me was cement my hatred for Chopper, and in turn, made me realize just how much this show is going to suck.

And would it kill the sound engineers to generate new sound effects?

I’ll stick to Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles instead. Such a GREAT show, you’re missing out if you haven’t been keeping up.

[SDCC] A LEGO Nerd’s Choice of Panels – Thursday

Hello, Comic Con attendees! Like last year, I’ve compiled a list of panels that I think might interest you, fans of LEGO licensed themes! So if you’re looking for things to do and see that doesn’t involve a line to get some exclusive toy, take a peek below. I know I will be trying my best to go to some of these. I’ll be posting daily so that you don’t have to keep searching back for the schedule. Just check the site each morning and I hope to see some of you there.

Toy Story That Time Forgot
11:15am Room 6A
Calling all Toy Story fans! ABC and Disney•Pixar present an exclusive first look at the upcoming holiday special, Toy Story That Time Forgot. Executive producer Galyn Susman (Toy Story OF TERROR!), director Steve Purcell (Brave), and head of story Derek Thompson (WALL•E) give you an exclusive inside look at the sketches, storyboards, and concepts that went into the making of this Disney•Pixar special!

The Heroes of Star Wars Rebels
6:00pm Room 6BCF
The almost 20-year stretch of Star Wars history between Episodes III and IV is a dark time in the galaxy that has never before been explored on screen. The evil Galactic Empire has tightened its grip and only a select few are brave enough to stand against tyranny and ignite a rebellion. Join Star Wars Rebels executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg as well as series stars Freddie Prinze, Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar, and Taylor Gray for an exclusive preview of what’s to come this Fall on Disney XD in this eagerly awaited television series from Lucasfilm Animation.

The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – A Look Under the Shell
8:15pm Room 6DE
In celebration of the new documentary film, Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, co-creator Kevin Eastman will lead this fascinating panel including Randall Lobb (writer/director), Isaac Elliott-Fisher (executive producer), Mark Hussey (executive producer), and Galen Walker (executive producer), taking fans behind-the-scenes and beneath the streets into the incredible 30-year journey and reveal the real origin story of four of pop culture’s most enduring heroes. Featuring clips from the documentary, followed by a Q&A discussion, fans will get to see how this so-called “happy accident” defied every naysayer to become one of the most popular and beloved franchises in the world.

[SDCC] MTV Reveals 75084 Wookie Gunship, Rebels’ Chopper Statue


MTV is giving us our first look of two new things that will be at LEGO’s booth at the San Diego Comic Con.

First up is a first-look at 75084 Wookie Gunship. I guess Wookies had their butts handed to them during the Clone Wars and decided to do away with wooden-based technology.

Next up is a large-scale sculpture of Chopper from the upcoming Rebels animated series. With all of these sculptures on display at their booth, I’m wondering if there will be any space to even walk around inside. I’m imagining their booth to look a mid-game, human-sized chessboard at this point.

First Clip of Star Wars Rebels

WonderCon is going on right now out in California, and along with what is possibly a trove of nerdy news (I have been doing yard work, so running behind on keeping up… there aren’t any real fun Cons in Arkansas), we get the first actual clip from the show. We’ve had a lot of videos telling us all about the characters (who are, shockingly, not as cliched in those videos as they were in the short blurbs and descriptions. Executive Producer Dave Filoni (who also directed The Clone Wars) and Vanessa Marshall (who voices Hera) open up the video.

Yeah, I’m still looking forward to seeing this, and all of the sets that it brings along. Thanks to dano for the head’s up on this!

New Star Wars Cartoon: Rebels

Yep, a new cartoon is in the works. It’s called Rebels and it’s set in the period between the events of Episode III and IV. I approach this news with cautious optimism. I never got into the Clone Wars cartoon series, I’m only familiar with the LEGO product tie-in and man did I hate those sets. The minifigs were ugly, which to this day I still cannot reconcile in my head the logic behind the decision on why they look so radically different from every other Star Wars minifigures. It’s all Star Wars isn’t it? Anyways, the same Art Director behind the Clone Wars is also going to be involved with this new venture, so there’s a slight chance that, stylistically speaking, Rebels will look and feel the same as the Clone Wars which can be good or bad depending on how you felt about it. All I know is that this will give us LEGO fans new sets to look forward to. I just hope the minifigs look normal and not some freaky eyed abominations.

If you’re attending Star Wars Celebration Europe, you’ll have the chance to be one of the first people to see its debut. Otherwise, look for it on Disney Channel sometime in 2014 with a series to air on Disney XD.

Thanks to Jared for the heads up.
