LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out is an original animated story based on both the LEGO STAR WARS toy sets and the classic and prequel Star Wars movies. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance (Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Hans Solo) are back, but when Luke embarks on his latest mission to stop Darth Vader and his crew, but his newfound celebrity as the "Death-Star Blower-Upper" makes it hard to escape the screaming hordes of fans! LSW: The Empire Strikes Out first aired as a television special in September 2012, and is now available to take home DVD!

Special Features

Although LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out doesn't really come with extras on the disc, however a huge draw is the mini LEGO figurine of Darth Vader that is included with the box set.

The Bottom Line

LEGO STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Out is full of back-to-back slapstick and jokes based on the original films that fans and Star Wars newbies alike can enjoy. Highlights include the sith-ling rivalry elements between Darth Maul and Darth Vader and the running gag with the Luke's female fans running amok throughout the adventure is a fun wink to the audience. This is definitely a cartoon that'll make you chuckle, perfect for viewing with younger siblings. The only thing missing is some extras to make it last longer!

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
