I have been collecting Star Wars autographs since 1998. Not all of my signatures are on Star Wars memorabilia. For example, when I met Warwick Davis at a comic convention in New York City I had him sign a Willow photograph. I also have publicity photos of Sir Alec Guinness and Christopher Lee from the 1970s and a Natalie Portman signed The Diary of Anne Frank theater poster from her performance on Broadway back in 1998. My current wish list includes Peter Cushing, Terence Stamp and John Williams. I am interested in knowing about the collections and wish lists of other members.
Hard to believe that it wasn't that long ago that I got a Hamill + Fisher dual signed through OPX for well under $200. She's gone and his price has more than tripled in less than two years.
The latest offering from OPX was a Last Jedi photo with inscription, 8x10s were $360 and 11x14 was $390 i believe. It sold out in a few hours. Price is only going up from here.
I saw that offer and wanted to get a Last Jedi SP. When I saw the price I changed my mind. I don't need it that bad. :-)
Not really autograph related, but it needs to be shared. I really liked Rogue One, it was far better than TFA in my opinion, mainly because it wasn't a scene for scene remake.
As much as I loved it, a few things bugged me upon seeing it in the theater, and I had hoped that I would be able to let it go, given some time. Not the case! Saw it again this week and it's even worse.
The first thing was the Dr. Evezan & Ponda bit. Not at all needed, and quite annoying in my opinion.
Lots of people loved the Tarkin bit, I was not one of them. The tech is certainly there to use him as a hologram maybe, at least the blue shimmering holo would have hidden the creepy inhuman skin and dead eye look the film gave Fake Peter.
The biggest glaring error in my opinion should have easily been caught by any editor with a clue, but it wasn't or they decided no one would notice. Wrong.
Let's cover some facts quickly.
Peter Cushing was 6'
Ben Mendelsohn is 5'11"
Darth Vader is listed as being 6'7"
Dave Prowse is 6'5", Spencer Wilding is 6'7", Daniel Naprous is 6'5"
Knowing all of these as facts.....please explain these scenes to me....
Guy Henry is 6'4" yet he had the privilege of being digitally altered into Peter Cushing, more power to him, but.....don't ya think someone should have paid closer attention?
That's a good question, Disney probably didn't care.
I agree that Rogue One was better than TFA. TFA was a remake of ANH. Typical of JJ Abrams to do remakes of beloved classics. He did this with Super 8, a remake of Close Encounters.
Rumor has it that TLJ is a remake of ESB and the third film will be a remake of JEDI. The sad thing about it is, fans, casual fans, etc are going to flood the theaters over and over again and say, SW 7,8 and 9 are the greatest SW movies of all time!
These are the same fans who at the time loved the prequels and now hate the prequels. These are also the same fans who 15 years from now, will hate 7,8 and 9!
I know some of you might not agree with my facts, but that's ok with me.
I prefer the George Lucas SW over the Disney SW any day. Disney is going to ruin the SW franchise. SW movies used to be special because they came out every 3 years not every year.
Fans all know that George regrets selling SW, Indy, etc because he's bitter towards everyone around him everyday. Look at how acts about signing autos. I would love it if a fan would tell him off. Of course, I can only dream until it's a reality.
Disney cast the wrong person to play Han Solo.
Anthony Ingruber was the perfect choice to play Han Solo. He's the spitting image of Harrison not Alden Ehrenreich, who is 5 '9 and Harrison Ford is 6' 1. Anthony Ingruber is 6'. From what I understand, Ingruber wasn't even considered for the role.
Again, these are my facts.
I'd love to hear your facts!
I was bothered by Grand Moff Tarkin's height in Rogue One as well. Thank you for posting all of the specifics, Pete.
Should I purchase a single signed Harrison Ford or a combo of David Prowse and James Earl Jones?
Can you post images?
I like them both and find it hard to choose.
From these scans I have serious doubts.
You have to put up good scans if you want correct opinions.
The Ford is real because I know the piece, the Jones graph I have many issues with.
