One of the most successful film series of all time finally makes its way to blu-ray in a rather unremarkable 9 disc set that doesn’t so much explode onto the HD format as fizzle and pop with a faint smell of fart.

If you’re like me then you’ve always wondered what all those creatures from the Star Wars movies would taste like. Oh, you’re still reading? Ah. Well. Bantha steak seems to be a pretty standard dish in the Star Wars universe so it’s obviously totally normal and not weird at all to think about these things.
Although this 24inch/60cm Imperial Stormtrooper is not equipped with the new helmet it still looks rather impressive and cool.
The stiff movements of this awesome toy remind me of the sentry robots from The Black Hole, but maybe that’s just
the Ritalin wearing off my memory playing tricks on me.
A cool feature that can be seen in the video is that it can fire its fist like the Shogun Warrior toys that I always wanted (and never had).
The only thing missing is Darth Vader’s sinister voice saying “ROCKET PUNCH!”. You know, because Darth Vader has experience with hands flying off and all.

Everybody knows that even highly skilled stormtroopers have problems hitting their target with their helmets on. It must be a nightmare to go into battle with the knowledge that even if you empty your blaster rifle at close range there is a good chance that you didn’t hit the target even once. For the average stormtrooper this makes for a quite frustrating experience. If they manage to survive the battle.
In any case, this new model takes a different approach. Instead of fitting the helmet with the usual gadgets like automatic polarizing and anti-flash blinding lenses, MFTAS, a comlink and other nonsense that didn’t work half the time, the Empire went for a complete redesign. So now if they can’t shoot their enemies, then maybe this new helmet will at least distract them long enough for the troopers to throw a couple of thermal detonators their way.

I demand an immediate reboot of our existing universe so that Geoge Lucas has to remake Star Wars as a cartoon movie that has dresses starring instead of real people. Maybe he could also add some singing, like in a musical. He would probably call it something like dressical. The movie would totally tank at the box office and there would be no sequels. BUT! There would also be no prequels! And my wounded, tormented soul would finally come to peace.
