    A Slight Reimagining of The Last Jedi

    Depends on what your goal is. The right approach would be to think of the story that's being told and to improve/enhance that, rather than propose alternatives that drastically change the themes or character arcs. When you say that the Rey storyline needs more time so that Rey can be trained properly or to mature, I take that to mean that you want to see a different story with Rey that's in opposition to the intended goals of the writer/director. That doesn't sound like a pacing or timeline issue.

    A Slight Reimagining of The Last Jedi

    I'd argue that's the point. She doesn't get trained by Luke and isn't supposed to. She's not on the island to get XP so that she can level up, she's there to bring Luke back to save the galaxy (and get some understanding of what's happening to her). Luke doesn't want to come back. So she goes off to get Ben to get him to save the galaxy. Her arc in the story is realising that she can be hero to save the galaxy. You're not going to get 'The Adventures of Master Luke and Rey'. Small rewrites aren't going to make that happen. It's fine to have wanted a whole new story entirely but arguing that key parts of the story we did get were unnecessary because they didn't conform to your ideal story isn't the right approach.

    It feels you're cramming too much into this (you've got days and days of space battles). And ultimately what you've done is replace one set of questions/issues with another fresh set.

    X-Wing Squad Builder Update

    Thought so. I don't know whether Wave 2 has been released Stateside yet, but it's out for a week in the UK and it's equal parts baffling and disappointing to have the app not include any of the new content.

    Has the App been upgraded with all of the Wave 2 content?

    Clone Wars!

    The 3-packs I find very interesting and I hope to see more of that type of release for the other factions. It's a good way of release thematic repaints out there.

    STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Discussion Thread!

    Thanks for posting that. I really liked that design (probably my favourite of all the racer ships so far) and wanted to see more of it. It feels sufficiently Star Wars in its asthetics, without going too far, and importantly has a nice simple silhouette. It's basically what the Z-95 should have looked like.
  8. That sounds utterly ridiculous, the equivalent of saying that putting your head in a shark's mouth will maybe break it's teeth. But you really don't have to take our word for it that it wouldn't have worked, RJ says as much on the commentary and intended it to be a futile exercise.
  9. I don't think one should forget the impact of Finn's capture, inadvertent role in the discovery of the Resistance shuttles, and near execution on his mindset when he's on Crait and driving that speeder. These are events that can and should change character attitudes and motivations. It is up to other events to revert those changes or create new motivations - which is precisely what Rose saving him does. And it's clearly a suicide run that wouldn't have worked. I'm surprised that so many seem to think he had a chance, given that we have a shot of his ship and guns melting like hot butter. My theory is that everyone has become so used to that absurd moment in Independence Day and thinks that how it works.

    T-85 and TIE/FO Interceptor? Let the theorizing being

    Sorry, but this isn't really the place for your fan-version of the X-wing.

    The conversion kit comes with components to convert 4x T70 X-wings, so 4 in a list will be a thing.

    STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Discussion Thread!

    Yeah, I liked them too. The look is great, and one can get used to the animation very quickly and enjoy it. It's a better and more cohesive show than Rebels, though there are similarities between Kaz and Ezra, and has a better start than TCW.

    I doubt the point cost for Poe will be higher than Luke (62 pts). The T-70 isn't that much better a ship than the T-65. I'd expect him to be slightly more than Wedge (so >52 but <60).
