  1. My speculation is that it is the little band of black at the front of the cylinder that the turret is on top of. The ship's a bit bigger than most of the racers in the show, so it wouldn't be awful but it does look kind of weird. Think like a pillbox fortification. Also notice that in the design notes it's listed with what seems to be a reflective color (basing that on the lines on the button on the right), so makes the most sense as a "window."
  2. They are Alderaanian diplomatic cruisers built by CEC. I imagine if they are manufactured there it's not unlike Subaru vehicles being manufactured in Indiana.
  3. https://www.starwars.com/series/star-wars-resistance/kaz-s-curse-episode-guide Guavian Death Gang fighter
  4. Yeah, kind of reminds me of something like a pillbox, but broader view. And like you say, scale matters there, so it is probably big enough.
  5. I really wasn't expecting space fighting in this episode. Nice to see! https://www.starwars.com/series/star-wars-resistance/kaz-s-curse-episode-guide The Guavian fighters are very cool and need to be in our favorite starfighter miniature game now. I'm very unclear on where the cockpit is in these. Is it that little band of black color at the front of the rear cylinder?
  6. I believe those dice are the same or very similar to the way Han Solo's dice look in The Last Jedi.
  7. I took the rear facing blaster to be more like the illicit upgrade Hot Shot Blaster we had in 1st edition. But it certainly seems right in a sort of interceptor role. Really fast straightline speed, decent shooting, decent maneuvering, but with some fun tools that other interceptors don't have such as landing on another ship.
  8. We didn't get much in the way of concept art for the droid fighter, sadly. It does look pretty good in the episode, though. Droid struts for landing on other ships to make them distracted when, FFG?
  9. Maybe flattening out the flags so that they're along other flat surfaces. Have to agree that would be a lot of tiny plastic extended from the chassis in a way probably annoying to produce.
  10. Walkers can do better on uneven terrain than tracked vehicles can, because one leg could be higher than the other. Tracked vehicles are forced to be at the incline of the terrain they are on at all times, where walkers can work around that issue at least some of the time. The AT-TE from The Clone Wars seems to be the clearest example of where the walker has solid advantages, IMO. But I also agree on the Empire's use of walkers. This is Tarkin Doctrine through and through. If you're intimidating enough, you control the narrative.
  11. I'm quite sure that Torch, like Venisa's starfighter, is heavily modified. The jetpacks on the shoulder of the legs certainly seemed to be tacked on.
  12. After watching the episode, fairly sure it's a torpedo.
  13. Thought everyone might enjoy seeing this "new" x-wing from this weeks Star Wars: Resistance. https://www.starwars.com/series/star-wars-resistance/rendezvous-point-episode-guide Looks like Bill George returned to do more model work here. Loving it. Seems this X-Wing has been heavily customized, perhaps beyond what we thought was possible. It's mentioned in the same Bucket List's Extra that “Venisa, along with Torch and her X-wing, were designed to look like she’s been using the same equipment since the Return of the Jedi era, as she was a fighter pilot at a young age." I take this to mean this is a T-65 that's been so heavily modified. If that's the case then she's changed a considerably large amount of things about it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There was also this ship in the concept art for the episode, though it did not seem to appear in the episode
  14. Some concept art that I'm pretty sure was NOT seen in this episode.
  15. You just beat me this time. https://www.starwars.com/series/star-wars-resistance/rendezvous-point-episode-guide Looks like Bill George returned to do more model work here. Loving it.

She appears to have the same or near-identical model of blaster as Han Solo.
  16. "It's totally the final trailer, guys" Yeah, I know it's a TV spot and those aren't quite the same thing but yeah.
  17. Maybe, but as someone motivated by specific types of food, I could see it just being just that **** delicious just as easily.
  18. Yeah, one of the latest versions added Vonreg. The card text is blurry but readable.
  19. I don't think it was clear in the episode that the artifact appears to have a little head sculpted into it. New stormtroopers
  20. Cool that they canonized a WEG originated planet. No other sources for that one in new-canon so far. I'm not ready to trust Ashas Ree yet. Maybe she really wants to keep these things from the FO and other baddies, maybe she wants to find power for herself, or maybe she's another undercover agent working for the FO. Also interesting that the kid asks her about the force. We know Eila is possibly force-sensitive (the precognition she has in dreams). I wonder if she was hoping Ashas would help her understand more about her abilities. Is Ashas force-sensitive as well? That still seems a little unclear to me. She did some neat flips while escaping the crumbling temple but that could just be that she's very athletic and acrobatic. She does seem to know some amount of information about the force, but so does Lor San Tekka and he wasn't force-sensitive either.

  22. I like the dynamic of the trade of parts for egg. It was more the "let's chop the top off and just scoop out the yolk directly," that felt weird. But it's genuinely alien and that's probably what it was going for. Weird can be good, I'd say this is good weird. But still weird.
  23. https://www.starwars.com/databank/stinger-mantis That does look fun. Does that "wing" rotate around like the fang fighter? Could have an ability based around that.
  24. Not sure how I feel about the relic seeking person. Neat to see how non-force-users might deal with a sith temple. Plus we find out that the FO supreme leader has special troopers looking for relics. At this point, that could be Kylo Ren, but seems more likely these are orders from Snoke.
