    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    I think it's the same character, Endrio Two Tubes. Costume is almost exactly the same and we know Enfyst Nest's gang are rebels so it's highly possible that her crew or at least Endrio will eventual join up with Saw Gerrerra.
  2. Maybe. It's possible that comic artist just took that design off the net, put it in the comic and Lucasfilm okayed it without foreknowledge that this was fan made. It would be bad if this was the case but stuff like this does happen. I hope at least the guy who did the fan design was asked by the comic artist if he could use it, then got the approval from LFL. I can see that happening, since I think this is just a random ship, not the Nebulon-K (despite the original artist's intentions) so in this case using a fan design is not out of the realm of possibility. The other thing too is the timeline doesn't match. Aphra is set in the OT era and the Neb-K is closer to a sequel trilogy ship.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    Maybe I missed something but I don't think spice and the Coaxium/Hyperfuel are the same thing. It seems to me that Kessel produces both spice AND unrefined hyperfuel but I can't be certain until I get my hands on the official visual guide.

    Solo Discussion Thread [SPOILERS!]

    Maul man! When I first heard rumors that he is in this I thought it was a really out of left field inclusion, but having just recalled what he did in Clone Wars where he successfully set up his own criminal empire, it made much more sense. Now I'm excited at the prospect of further exploring the crime syndicate wars in future SW flicks. Also this has the obligatory lightsaber scene. Haha.....just when I thought I would actually not ever see a lightsaber ignited in a SW movie, the story throws one at me. Also, Carida Imperial Academy is canon and Han was sent there. He got kicked out of flight school though.

    Solo Discussion Thread [NON-SPOILERS!]

    I totally get what you mean. I had the same reaction from the trailers. To put it simply, for the duration of the film, he made me forget that Harrison Ford is Han. I mean he is, but so is Alden. Once you see his performance in context and in its entirety you'll get what I mean. It also helps that this movie is roughly a decade removed from ANH.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    To be fair she's as much a rebel as much as Cham Sydulla is for his Free Ryloth movement, Saw and his partisans or the native's of Mimban fighting against Imperial occupation. At this point they're all separate and have no affiliation to each other. The notion of a united Rebel Alliance hasn't spread amongst the peoples of the galaxy yet but I get that Enfyst Nest is suppose to represent that idea. Anyway, Maul man! When I first heard rumors that he is in this I thought it was a really out of place inclusion, but having just recalled what he did in Clone Wars where he successfully set up his own criminal empire, it made much more sense. Now I'm excited at the prospect of further exploring the crime syndicate wars in future SW flicks. Also this has the obligatory lightsaber scene.

    Solo Discussion Thread [NON-SPOILERS!]

    I was cautiously optimistic about Solo, then I got a little worried after reading some of the early mixed reviews but now having watched it I can say Solo is a very enjoyable movie. Han, Chewie and Lando were great. The rest of the cast were decent to good. L3 not as annoying as I was expected here to be. Her personal agenda is a bit of an eye-roll but it doesn't become grating. Just like Rogue One, Solo is similarly made for the fans; the biggest plot reveal at the end of the movie only works if you've been keeping up with the tv series and published canon material. Story overall is pretty simple and straightforward, which I think is a good thing as this acts a good palate cleanser after the heaviness (and divisiveness) of TLJ. Already I have to a few friends who hated TLJ say that they like Solo so much more. It just meets all their expectations of a Star Wars movie. So for those who are on the fence about this, I recommend just going out to watch this. You might end up liking it:)  Speaking to those who think they can force change in Lucasfilm by boycotting Solo, that's just dumb and immature. If Solo fails it should fail because it's a bad movie (which it is not), not because of some preconceived notion that it's out to promote an agenda you don't agree with. It's not like I even entirely agree with Lucasfilm's direction for SW under KK's leadership; they are pushing their so called "SJW" message a little too hard, but I'm not throwing the baby out with the bath water, which the haters seem to want to do. All this hissy fit throwing is just making things worse and souring the experience of enjoying SW. Just move on with life if you don't like it anymore, its not politics (unless you wanna make it so).

    Solo movie talk (No spoilers)

    After Rogue One failed in China despite starring 2 of the biggest Chinese actors in the business I knew Star Wars was never gonna take off there, so SW flopping in China is kind of a given at this point. Here in South East Asia, on the other hand, we love SW but the marketing push for Solo has been considerably minimal compared to the previous films. A lot of people outside of the fanbase aren't even aware it's coming out. Also being in close proximity to the giant that is Infinity War doesn't help, which is still drawing in most of the movie going crowd. Having said that I think Solo is a very enjoyable movie. Han, Chewie and Lando were great. The rest of the cast were decent to good. L3 not as annoying as I was expected here to be. Her personal agenda is a bit of an eye-roll but it doesn't become grating. Just like Rogue One, Solo is similarly made for the fans; the biggest plot reveal at the end of the movie only works if you've been keeping up with the tv series and published canon material.

    Creating B-Wing art: "Enemy ships in Sector 47!"

    I must say this is fantastic stuff. I saw your Interceptor art thread and I think it’s awesome. You should try doing this for FFG, assuming you aren’t already. If you’re interested I can connect you with them. Just let me know.

    TIE/rb

    Keep in mind Solo takes place a good 8-10 years before the OT. Thats alot of time in between. This thing may have been phased out in that period or its very specialised, or just not cost efficient for mass production. The other point I’d like to make is the Empire is a galactic wide military industrial complex. Making new and more varied weapons of war is their business. Some end up becoming ubiquitous symbols of the Empire, others end up being not so viable and get phased out or some being more specialised and theatre specific. All these new pre OT designs don’t bother me at all because the Empire is all about creating new weapons of war.
  12. Dave Filoni, anime style, starfighter pilots? Sounds like Avatar The Last Airbender meets Rogue Squadron. Color me intrigued.

    Man I’d be pissed if that happened to me.

    Darth Vader Boarding Team

    Kuat refit is probably the best platform for Vader BT. I’ve used it couple of times and have gotten good uses out of it. One game I sent Vader to remove DCO followed by an ACM front salvo from my Kuat. Another time he removed a Gunnery teams but I ended up killing the ship that round anyway. While BTroopers works best during Avengers own activation, Vader bt is better in that he helps the rest of your fleet by removing certain troublesome upgrades in your opponents fleet. Upgrades like ECM, EWS, Toryn, Brunson and the like are very common in the current meta and make for very good targets. Vader bt is also better than BTroopers against ships like Landonition (remove Lando before he ruins your perfect roll) or Rieekan’s Yavaris(nueter that double tap B-wing monster shot).
