    @citizen-stu whoa! Good observation! I’m reluctant to say more, in case anyone is trying to avoid spoilers.

    Actual Star Wars news: Orlando has added their own Star Wars half marathon to the RunDisney calender. It seems the California race is Light Side themed, and the Orlando race will be Dark Side themed. I’m going to try and sign up.

    Yup! And I was like – that dude has NO training. Kylo is gonna cut him down. And then I was like… but what if Luke jumps in there and saves his ass?! And then Matt was like, “don’t even say that, I’ll burst into tears.”

    I could see Luke hopping into that fight and then doing what Obi-Wan did in A New Hope vs. Vader, more powerful than you can possibly imagine and all that.
    Edit for more thoughts: Qui-Gon – Dead, Obi-Wan – Dead, what if Han dying has been a red herring all along, but we get Ghost Luke in more films.

    Nobody is normal, a normal person is just someone you don't know very well.

    @BertoElCon that theory seems sound to me

    Looks like Lego has a Kylo Ren Command Shuttle play set that is vaguely Shuttle Tiderium shaped. I found the implications of that surprising; I guess I have been assuming he is non-affiliated with any of the major groups for some reason.

    NEW STATE OF THE EMPIRE!

    @maxacree
    Kylo is working with the First Order but isn’t of the First Order. Insofar as the shuttle… make of that what you will.

    I’d like to go on record that I called the Templar/Crusade imagery right after that first teaser came out…

    Has anyone else noticed that the promotional material (toy standees and trailers and such) all seem to be showing the First Order stuff in such a way that it hides or otherwise downplays that red situation on their gear? Like the tie fighter with its one red panel? I noticed it at target over the weekend, where their big hanging Tie Fighter sign was at a really odd forced perspective that made it super easy to miss.

    New speculation founded on nothing: Is that weird red panel a reference to the Emperor’s Crimson Guard? Could the first order be an offshoot of some of those guys?

    A Comic Shop?’s Aaron is starting Wicket Watch in hopes that my State of the Empire prophecy doesn’t come true.

    The registration for the Disney Orlando Star Wars Half Marathon went live today, and I am officially registered. the run is mid-april, so I will be setting a course for Dagobah to begin my training. There are shorter runs and kids’ runs, but they tend to sell out pretty fast.

    the next task is to figure out how I want to dress. I’m not sure I want to carry an Ice Cream Maker for 13 miles, so Wilrow Hood is probably not on the table.

    @maxacree Dude, you’ve gotta do Wilrow. Just like… build a strap to the machine so it’ll stay clutched to your bosom while you’re trucking it. You’ll be a damned hero.

    I’ve been seriously considering doing a Willow character as well, but having done 2 half marathons in the past, I can tell you that even clothes specifically designed to run in will result in some serious chafing at that distance.

    I was thinking that I could somehow disguise my camelback as the ice cream maker
