Apart from BB-8 or anything stolen from previous films, can you name me one iconic design that was in The Force Awakens?
>>
Kylo's saber you retard

Unfortunately yes. The retarded deviantart saber.

So iconic.

It's not exactly up there with the death star, vader's helmet or the millenium falcon.
>>
>>64352655

Very, very few things are

That's because unlike Vader and the Falcon. Kylo's sabre didn't appear in multiple movies yet.

It also had a unique sound and visual effect.

True

This movie didn't produce a lot of distinct shit for merchandising

Lucas learned a long time ago how to produce a fuckload of irrelevant characters with 1 second of screen time each to make action figures out of for maximum shekels; a skill Jar Jar has still yet to develop.

So they gotta milk every last thing they can.
>>
>>64352596
BB-8 was actually based on an old rejected design for R2.
>>
>>64353050
Yeah but so is half the franchise, difference is the toyetic characters at least accomplish something in the movie. Even Boba had cool lines, a badass attitude and was basically the whole reason the good guys lose in Empire.

>>64353198
Sure and I hope they can fix her. But the damage is sorta already done isn't it? She immediately surrendered and blew up her own super weapon. Then she got stuffed into the garbage.

She's already completely undermined as a threat and shes a total joke to most people now.

That fucking riot trooper is getting all the attention. (And for good reason)
>>
>>64353050
She is LITERALLY Boba 3.0
>>
>>64353255

Yeah they really could have amped up the merchandising shit and it's bizarre they didn't. Disney just paid billions for the franchise and then sort of missed the point of why you would pay so much for it, i.e. to milk it to shit with new vehicles, toys, etc.

Maybe they think that coming out with a new movie every year will be enough milking, but it still seems like a missed opportunity.

Not the anon you replied to but yer definitely. His design is pretty cool to be honest. I really like how his lightsaber has the air vent things because it's a cracked crystal. Anyone who disagrees this isn't a cool idea is just saying that to be some ebin hat tipper.
>>
>>64352655
Kylos saber has existed in the public consciousness for a maybe a few months, whenever the trailer came out. Those things you've mentioned have existed for nearly four decades. I can think of very few things from any scifi franchise that is as iconic, I think you're just determined to dislike this film's design if you're framing your question this way.

Hey, reddit

It's true though, I'm not even arguing that you must like this film or that it's groundbreaking or even good, just that you've sown your own conclusion.

Because it's true. There's very, very little in the way of memorable or decent design in the film.

That is your opinion (and it's mine too to be honest), but what is not opinion is that you've set the bar higher than any other science fiction film could ever achieve, much less one that's been out for a month.
If you dislike the design of the film, just say that, don't try to frame it in a false analogy and pass it off as demonstrable fact.

You can't honestly call something failing to be iconic or memorable when it's been out for a month if your litmus test is the original star wars trilogy. Nothing will pass this litmus test, you are effectively expressing nothing.
>>
>>64354024
You literally can't decide if it's iconic or memorable, that's for the general audience to decide over years or exposure. Especially the new generation of watchers. You especially can't because you grew up with the originals which you are heavily biased towards.

It isn't new, but finally showing how Chewie's bowcaster was way different than blasters was nice, and should have been show in the OT.

There was about as much memorable stuff as the prequels and the OT, no more no less.

>everything is iconic because it hadn't been done before

Heads up guys. The entire prequel trilogy is iconic now.
>>
>>64354360
Because it takes that much time to see whether or not certain pieces of design gel in people's minds or not. Honestly this might just help your opinion but a lot of it depends on public reaction and merchandising. If you want to compare it to the OT, at least wait until this trilogy is done before you start calling your shitty opinion gospel.

Original design is kind of peppered in. It doesn't bother me that it isn't prominent because watching X-wings vs. Tie Fighters was awesome as fuck.

Here the new design atleast has some meaning and purpose, it isn't just for show.

Kylo Rens lightsaber is the extension of his character: highly unstable, crude and amateur build and very powerful. The vents are on the side because it has a cracked crystal inside the hilt which produces a unstable beam that needs those 2 vents just to work properly.

But yeah no drastic changes were made in TFA, played kinda safe

Is your point that they are comparable but one falls flat while the other doesn't? Because Jabba is much more important to the films than junkyard alien, but that's a function of plot relevance and screen time, not iconic design or the films overall staying power, as you seem to be implying.

Phasmas armor was a modified stormtroopers armor, sprayed silver, the lightsaber was bullshit, the bike was a super boring version of the landspeeder (also for some reason rey left it running while scavenging for hours, which triggered me hard).

It is. People quote that shit almost as much as traitor. Rey is eating portions when every sperg goes "A CUTE!"

So in many ways, it is iconic in more than just design.

Sorry for your mental illness, but just because a few people parrot a phrase from a movie that was released A WEEK AGO and then never think of it again, doesn't make it iconic.

You seem to have confused the word 'iconic' with the word 'memorable', and half the things on your list aren't even fucking memorable at that.

Because it's a status symbol. If a lambda shuttle is landing it means someone with the authority to ruin your life for fun is on board.

He's actually right. They got the idea for the falcon's design over lunch. He ordered a hamburger, it had an olive on a toothpick as a garnish, he took it out, set it to the side of the plate, and took a bite of the hamburger.

He looked at the olive off the side of a saucer shape with a bite taken out, and thus the falcon was born.

Wha'ts so memorable about Dooku's character besides the actor who plays it?
>>
>>64360195
Dooku is most most forgettable villain in cinema.
The only ones in the prequels who stand a chance against BB-8 are:
Jar Jar(for all the wrong reasons)
Darth Maul(but that's stretching it)
And maybe podracing because of the vidya

Nothing. Does someone know if Christopher Lee got along with Lucas? I know he had problems with Jackson, and the final result in The Lord of the Rings was way better.

Darth Maul is the only iconic design from the prequels. Everything else you mention is memorable for how bad it is.

For a series that introduced so many "new aliens and ships", the Prequels are fucking forgettable as hell in terms of designs.

The "crossguard" shit is retarded. In a practical sense he's more apt to slice off his own wrist or part of his leg with that stupid fucking crossguard.
