  1. Im really on board with Benicio Del Toro potentially playing older Ezra in the Last Jedi. I am totally fine if Ezra survives only to become a sortve cynical, self serving, but still inherently honorable Talon Kaarde esque character. That would give him a lot of depth he's sorely missing. It would also make Ezra's tangles with falling to the dark side in Rebels seem less like fake drama and tension. My core problem with Ezra is that he's a trope. He's a highly capable smart-*** orphan. Now there's nothing wrong with tropes in the slightest when done right or in a surprising way but theres nothing unique or fascinating about Ezra to me. Im dying to know more about the rest of the Ghost crew but I feel no stakes with Ezra, he just always wins even when he loses. I will admit he's improved a lot as a character but he still could be taken to that next level.
  2. I bet Thrawn will be on nothing less then a Large base ship. Thrawn, unless his ability is absolutely garbage which is highly unlikely, will sell whatever he's attached to like hotcakes. To me he sounds like the biggest reason for FLG to do an ISD-I model even if it shares stats with the current ISD.
  3. Ohhhh Fuller is the show runner, I immediately noticed his style and thought someone was just riffing on Hannibal. I love American Gods so far, i've never read the book so i'm avoiding spoilers. Anansi and Anubis are my favorites so far. I just took a hieroglyphics course and their portrayal of Anubis has been on point to what I learnt, double points for casting someone who looks more like the early Egyptians would have looked like. Now I don't know because I haven't spoiled myself but my theory from just watching the first five episodes is that Odin is Shadow's father.
  4. I want that table!!!!!!!! Still tempted to buy Ascendency. With the Borg, Ferengi, and Cardassians coming it is so tempting! I might wait till it goes on sale on amazon.
  5. Oh its heavily implied Cassian and K2-SO have known each other and basically been bros for years. Chirrut and Baze have known each other since before Order 66 so for them its like 20 years? By the by I never realized this but Tarkin's first scene mirrors Vader's first scene in Return of the Jedi beautifully. A few examples. "The Emperor will tolerate no further delays" Tarkin "The Emperor is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress" Vader "Failure, will have you explaining why to a far less patient audience." Tarkin "I hope so commander, for your sake, the my master is not as forgiving as I am." Vader
  6. That's really cool of him!
  7. Looks good. Is the point to weigh the squadrons down to make them less tipsy?
  8. Well my point is that all we know is there is no hanger and the ship looks pretty much exactly like an ISD. Devil's in the details and theres still room for it to look visually distinct. We've only seen the bottom on screen. The Tector is a dedicated war ship, maybe it doesnt have shield balls on top. Maybe it has a thicker, more armored neck. Maybe it was designed to be completely armored in response to the ISDs slicing through each other in Rogue One so those stack of hull plates on top don't have exposed grueling on the side. Take the USS Voyager for instance. Without Armor: With Armor:
  9. Having canon looks for the Tector class and Pride of Tarlandia would be amazing. The Tector may essentially be a regular ISD, but even in that frame there's a lot they can do to make it look distinct. Take the Enterprise-A and the Original Series Enterprise from Star Trek for instance. Practically the same ship and form work but very different. I also wouldn't mind a model of a space station with new rules for stations.
  10. The Clone Wars has one, although arguably as a show it has plenty more middling episodes then Rebels, but I was thinking we need a list of definitive episodes for Rebels. I'm sure its exists out there somewhere in the depths of the internet. Please other Rebels fans, if you disagree with a choice let me know cause I think it'd be cool to get a sort've definitive list. NOTE: THIS IS ABOUT STORY NOT QUALITY. (sorry for all caps ) Green = Must Watch Orange = Could Watch (Skippable and you'll still understand the main story but I think adds enough to the main arc to watch if you have the time) Red = Can Skip **= Thrawn's In Episode Season One: Season 2 Season 3
  11. Creating a list for Rebels is difficult as they usually infuse a bunch of character development into every episode, and therefore if you really care about the Ghost Crew then you sort've should watch them all. However there are a few important arcs so for story purposes its possible so i'll give it a shot. Please other Rebels fans, if you disagree with a choice let me know cause I think it'd be cool to get a sort've definitive list. NOTE: THIS IS ONLY IF YOU INTEND TO NOT WATCH THE ENTIRE SERIES.

  12. Rogue One proves people really want more capital ship battles. Dog fights are fun but honestly what more can they do with them that we havent seen in eight movies now? Of course I want to see more starfighter sparring but let the big boys brawl!
  13. I think you severely underestimate their chances. An SSD being released does not indicate any sense of death rattle for Armada. Sure it would make a ton of sense for them to do what you suggest however business wise you don't wait, you release when you are making the most money. There's no guarantee an SSD would sell that much considering its cost would be pretty high. Its sort've niche, something you release at the height of popularity. If the game is dying it would mean less people are playing so as a consumer why would you shell out a lot of money for something you might only ever get to look at?
  14. There's a lot of things that don't make sense in Star Wars. No you should never be able to hijack a Star Destroyer let alone an SSD. The Battle of Jakku is really small scale at only three dozen star destroyers (Since the Imperial Remanent is amalgamating and not trying to hold territory) considering the Empire has twenty-five thousand ISDs.
  15. Hopefully never. The factions need to stay unique. The only way i'd be okay with dual faction ships is if we had a third faction that was widely different from the first two. Otherwise I dont want to see the factions get dilluted.
