Star Wars: Rebels

76 posts in this topic

I think it looks good. I like the designs of the characters and the art direction. But I am kind of on the fence about anything Star Wars being released as far as film and television. I'm kind of lukewarm about all of it honestly. But I'll definitely check it out once it airs, and I'll be reserving my judgment till then. Hope it's good!

I caught the trailers in articles on i09.  I don't have cable, but it looks good enough for me to intend on getting a season pass to stream it instead of waiting for it to hit Netflix.

Any links you could drop here so we could see what you're talking about..

 

A little google search can go a long way.

No offense.

Well look at it this way. We've got nowhere to go but up after things like... Star Wars... Kinect... *shudder*

Regardless, I'm cautiously optimistic myself. I really like the design of the crew already- pretty sure I've already picked my favorite (Sabine, even though that droid looks like fun.) and The Ghost is really kinda' growing on me. Big ugly, chuddy ship. What's not to like? It's like The Falcon but not the falcon, and it's different enough to not hate.

I don't always geek out over character teaser videos, but when I do, I order vacuform machine parts so I can make a machine and learn how to make vacuform armour, and then build her costume =^,^=

 

While I'm finishing my A Wing Pilot costume, I'll be learning how to do this vacuforming thing.  And when the A-Wing is done, launching into doing up Sabine.  The vacuform will be handy for one of the A-Wing parts too, which was going to be tricky to do by other means.

All I know, is that I am really, really liking the designs shown so far. The seem to be really creative. I'm looking forward to it, as I like the creative team.

I'm hoping for something more toward the awesome cartoon network Clone Wars than the later stuff that was "clone wars".  Star Wars needs to be a little dirty, not gritty and a little gray, not dark to really be Star Wars.

Am i the only one who doesnt like the Ghost? It isnt terrible but it has no real sense of 'Look here come the plucky heroes in their  plucky ship'  It does have some design elements i like but as a whole is just so so.

The Ghost certainly doesn't have the plucky asymmetrical look of the Falcon, that's for sure.  But I like the B-26 Bomber vibes of it well enough.  It's very Star Warsy at least.

Would love to see this when you're done with it.. if I could afford to do that kind of stuff, I'd have stormtrooper armor .. lol..

You arent alone Gosric, I think it looks odd, 'fat' is really what I mean.. just looks odd, maybe my ideas about smooth smugglers is taking over.. lol.

I agree with RedWilde though I do appreciate the old world bomber aspect..

There will definitely be WIP and final pix on the blog!  Quick and dirty convention costumes can be done pretty cheaply, the full Rebel Legion - 501st Legion - Mandalorian Mercs approved ones aren't so cheap.  But I've been excited to start working to join up with them.  The charity work these organisations do is the best excuse I've come across for diving into the high end costuming!  Last year I met the local Rebel & 501st folks while I was running X-Wing at Boston ComicCon.  They're great people and I'm looking forward to trooping with them.

 

At least with Storm Trooper armour, you can buy the vacuform kits from folks who've already worked them out!  My A-Wing helmet kit is on order and should be arriving any day.  I'll be doing Sabine from scratch, but then presuming I get it all worked out, I can then offer that kit for sale to others.  A couple of the local Legion folks have a lot of experience creating these, and they'll be helping me out a lot.

Red - im a huge fan of WW2 aircraft design (any doubts about that would be dispelled with a glance at the nose of my Corvan smuggler *L*).and the parts that have that influence are the parts i like  But to me it just looks like someone tacked a drive module and a WW2 bomber cockpit onto the Narcissus from Alien. I guess it just seems like a lazy design

I was going to make this...before anyone else posted. It would b a nice ORS. If they make it it should have a different arc on the front, wider I think. I started to try and build it in 3d max tonght.

Gosric, I can see where you're coming from.  

 

But I'm willing to let this design grow on me.  Individually, the Falcon is better.  But because the Ghost looks like such a bomber, I think having a flight of them on the table will look way better than a bunch of ORS YT-1300s.

Wave 5

I aint that hooked on starwars as television series, well i loved Genndy tartakovsky's clone wars. The CGI version of clone wars had some cool design, saw the pilot in cinema with my girlfriend because we where in Krakow and it was the only english speaking movie we could find. She hated it... I was kinda: Whatever.

The rest of the show I watch with my nephew when I am babysitting him and I enjoy watching it together with him, have never feelt the need to see an episode alone.

I like some of the design even better in Rebels (especially agent Kallus) but dislike the Inquisitor (there should only be two sith guys in the rebellion era in my view). I think that the ships from rebels might become wave 5, it could be something like this:

 

Rebels:

 

The Ghost: aka another cool Falcon

Medium base

Pilots: Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus

Crew: Ezra Dridger, Zeb Orretios and Sabine

Upgrades: crew, turret

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ghost_(starship)

 

Phantom Craft: aka the grey lunchbox

Small base.

Pilots: Ezra Dridger, Zeb Orretios and Sabine

Upgrades: missiles, droid (Chopper)

The Empire:

 

The Inquisitor's Tie fighter:

Small base

Pilot: The Inquisitor, agent Kallus

upgrades:

FYI for those on the fence about the new Rebels cartoon, I suggest you check out Clone Wars. Rebels is made by by the same people and Clone Wars was actually voted 89 out of 100 in IGN's top animated series of all time.

And good news for Clone Wars fans that have Netflix. Season 6, in 13 episodes, will be available on Netflix starting on March 7th. So now we'll get a proper ending to the series instead of having it cut short.

I just wanna' say that I really do love the prequels with all my heart due to the wonderful technology and lore they added (You could play with the clone wars for a loooong time).

But Man.

I am so happy to be blazing back into the era everyone knows and loves. And beyond.

I'm sure I've seen the ghost somewhere before... It's very similar to the Smugglers ship from SWTORSWTOR-Smuggler-Ship-Header.jpg

 

The Ebon Hawk!

 

I have so many feels for this ship!

 

On topic though, I like the look of Rebels, and wouldn't have a problem if FFG wanted to include a ship or two. Certainly wouldn't say no to Ghost! :L
