So, I finally saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Somehow I managed to avoid all spoilers except part of Kylo Ren's identity. Now in contrast to this, I'll want to gobble up all spoilers I can for the next film, or at least, certain ones (if such things are talked about at all).

Needless to say, there are major spoilers under here )

Anyway, in any case, I definitely want some merchandise of the new good guys. I bought a big figure of Finn right after the movie last night. I wished I could have found Rey too, but I didn't see any of her. I don't even know if they've made a big figure of her. They made a small one, but Wal-Mart didn't have any of those last night, either. I could have got the small Finn and waited for the small Rey, but the big one was only two dollars more, so it seemed silly to get the small one. I really want Rey too, though, so I hope they have a big one of her.

It's so frustrating, though; everything is so cheaply made these days. The big figures don't have removable clothes or helmets anymore. I remember when the big Star Wars figures all had removable clothes and even the guys had rooted hair. The Qui-Gon figure was just awesome!

Little Golden Books, too. They used to be illustrated so beautifully and lushly and you could tell a lot of effort had been put into making them amazing. Now they look like they were illustrated by a middle-schooler on his lunch break. It's like they feel kids' books just don't deserve the same time and devotion they used to. That's something that's made me sad for years.

But anyway. So, there were definitely things I liked about The Force Awakens and definitely things I didn't like. And we'll see how that balances out as we near the second movie next year. I'm so glad we don't have to wait three years for it....
