Donít have Disney+, and have never seen the show. Yoda is a wise and respected leader. This sort of reminds me of Muppet Babies.

I just never thought of him as every having been young, so it was odd to see this figure. Seems he eats frogs and such.

Cheers.

Not to geek out too bad, but Mandalorian is set a few years after Return of the Jedi - After Yoda's death. "The Child" is not Yoda, but perhaps one of his species. Perhaps a lovechild of Yoda and Yaddle (Phantom Menace). Phantom Menace was set approx 42 years before The Mandalorian, so the 50 year age of The Child sort of fits with the Yoda/Yaddle thing, but would also reveal that Yoda was a complete deadbeat dad.

That's enough of me. lol

Deadbeat Muppets? Even better... Iím sorry. I really just canít get into any of the Starwars 2.0 stuff. Too old and set in my way.

That, and I really think it's not as good. The first 3 movies (4,5,6) were something new and very well done (Hamill and Fisher's acting aside). 1,2,3 were completely lame with possibly worse acting - and it's a stretch for Natalie Portman to act poorly. But Jar Jar? Really? 7,8,9 were better, but still derivative. Some interesting aspects, but not much. The newer stuff is hanging onto the back of the older stuff, and doing an OK job in some cases, and poor in others.

The exception for me was Rogue One, which I thought was very good and on par with the original stuff in terms on ingenuity.

Still bummed that they used whatever that planet was for Star Wars Land instead of Tatooine.

Cheers.

I have our long weekend booked for the 50th next year. Fingers crossed that we are able to go. We will do 1-2 days at MK and the rest at AK. I may not love the Avatar movies, but the land is amazing! And then there is FOP...

I wonít be standing in line for simulated rust and dirt.

I may not be up on current music, but I do know about The Child. This made me smile and the post about frogs and such

I think tomorrow I"m going to go ahead and place my order. I've been wanting one for a long time, and want to treat myself!
Also have been wanting a Boba Fett, but not the Mythos, Although i might get that one, or try to get one on the secondary markets.

Can't wait for tomorrow's episode.

Mythos is a great one as well. Worth it.
