I'm glad Brom lived. I really liked the guy.
whatever happened to chop posting and sheev sympathizers
What do you guys think of Galaxy of Heroes? I think it's a pretty fun timesink and I really appreciate the attention to detail especially in TCW characters (Sidious wears his robes from the Mandalore fight, and has an attack where he drags his two sabers on the ground, for example).
That's... that's not Luminara
I've had a lot of fun with it, and gotten a lot of decent chars just from bronze pulls.
Hope the roster updates soon though, the lack of a normal Han, Luke with a lightsaber, Yoda, or Clone Wars era Obi-Wan are all inexcusable.
>not marrying Shaak Ti, fucking Green TR-8R, and getting trained by Secura so you can stare at her for hours a day
>Why do the QT's have to die?
But anon, Ahsoka is alive.
what is this pic from? its not in any trailers and there are no snowtroopers in TFA
If you were a species in SW besides human, who would you be, realistically?
Like, don't just so "I'd be a badass Zabrak Mandolorian Sith with a 2 foot cock". Taking into account who you are right now, what would you wind up being?
I might be an Ithorian, because I'm really tall and kinda mellow.
Why are those ships being pulled in? I thought Interdictors used gravity well generators to fool hyperdrives into 'thinking' they're being engaged in a planet's gravity field, thus engaging the safety precautions?
>They don't "steal" children. They keep a catalog of all force sensitives within the borders of the Republic and they obviously have some sort of interaction with a child's parents based on that arc from TCW.
This. The Jedi never just steal a kid from their crib in the middle of the night. They speak to the parents about their child's "gifts" and offer them the opportunity to allow the Order to train their child's gifts to a point where they could make a real, good difference in the galaxy. They don't take them as infants either but rather as young children(once basic motor skills have been developed), which is noted in the "Children of the Force" arc as well as that one flashback where Plo Koon finds Ahsoka Tano as a young child - cognizant of her surroundings and standing on her own two feet.
Even then, the parents always have the choice to decline. The Jedi will warn of the risks and implore otherwise, but they won't insist or impose.
Leaving Force Sensitives, especially children, out of the hands of the Jedi seems like a really bad idea. All it takes is a few things to go wrong before some kid Force Chokes his entire school because he had no one to guide him.
Also, there's very little choice involved when an institution, backed by the government, comes knocking on your door and asks 'permission' to take your children. I don't even hate the Jedi, but when powerful people give you a choice, they're pressuring you without even needing to.
I'm not sure she will survive 2016...
This thread is great when everyone is being civil. Now that the TFA hype has died down, I think most of the obvious shitposters have gotten bored and moved on.
Something boring and not too different like a Mirilian.
It sort of depends, though. Some people grow up never realizing they have Force sensitivity. Luke for example. Even Anakin's Force powers only manifested in fast reflexes at first.
In that case, what were some of your favorite EU Imperial Starships?
Pic related is mine. I hope it shows up in Rebels or new canon. Right next to the
>Leaving Force Sensitives, especially children, out of the hands of the Jedi seems like a really bad idea
That's why they try to advise the parent of such things. But at the end of the day it's up to the parents to decide what happens to their kids.
Which gets me thinking, what happened to those kids and parents that were going to sent their kids to the Jedi temple years down the road when Order 66 happened? Does Sheev know of their existence?
Hell, Leia was well into adulthood before she realized she was Force sensitive. Things started to make sense to her in hindsight, but it's unlikely she would've woken up one morning going "whoa I know the Force!" if Luke hadn't told her.
Nautolan or Kel Dor, perhaps.
Still kind of messed up. Just because they're not physically removing the children doesn't make it morally acceptable. It's a situation where the child is too young to properly make any decisions, and so the decision is left up to the parents. And who knows what sort of fucked up situation the family is in at the time. If they're in poverty it's not much of a decision. It's like "Do you want your child to grow up struggling in this harsh environment? No? Then give them to us. We will teach them not to love you anymore and train them in the use of deadly weapons." It's fucked up.
Yeah, there's a lot of gray areas there and their insistence on removing attachments is the wrong approach to the issue of attachment, but that's a far cry from "literal child-nappers"
Pretty much all this >>78844041, >>78844058, >>78844093
Ezra is a pretty good recent example. You'll never be able to properly tap into the Force without the training to do so, hence Qui-Gon's saying when Anakin learns to "quiet" his mind, he'll hear the Midichlorians speaking to him. You don't just 'get' to be able to use the Force once you're deemed Sensitive, you need to actively learn it from people who do. Otherwise, you'll just be left with heightened awareness and reflexes to take advantage of. All you really need to worry about at that point are the Sith or Inquisitors coming knocking at your door next to tell you about their slave and property, the Dark Side
No to all three. The Imperials are also getting more incompetent. Soon a Stormtrooper will drop an explosive canister down a tunnel that leads to the base's reactor core because of how fucking stupid they are now.
>We will teach them not to love you anymore
Love is not forbidden. Attachment is.
>train them in the use of deadly weapons
Do you even know what the Jedi do? Your kid has a very special power that you have no idea how to control and one day they will be very powerful. Do you know what kind of compromise that would put on a parent? The Jedi come in and say, "this kid is powerful. we will teach him how to harness these powers and become a force for good in this galaxy".
This ties in to one of the more interesting stories from the EU, with the case of Baby Ludi. After some huge disaster, there's a baby that's found and the Jedi realize she's Force sensitive and being an orphan, take her to the temple to be trained.
Except things get complicated when her mother turns out to have survived and now wants her baby back. The Jedi are reluctant to do that because they say the baby's mind has already been awakened to the Force, and giving her back now could be dangerous. It became this big media sideshow, but then it got overshadowed by the Clone Wars breaking out.
>They seemed to be leading the Clone Wars fine and were even winning.
Only because they were engineerd too, the fact they allowed the situation o get that, bad and couldn't see what was going on, how corrupt the senate was that so many planets would join the separatists and a bunch of other things make the incompotent
>Their refusal to join the Mandalorian Wars does not make them incompetent. They're peacekeepers, not soldiers.
Except entire planets were getting genocided, and despite this they ignored it, all while in their back yard a sith engineered the murder of their own students, the stock piling of artifacts and a plan that almost reduced Corouscaunt to ruble. All while they had an actual jedi telling them what was going on but they just went "nah that duded a force retrad he must be lying" seriously go read the kotor comic and tell me they aren't incomptent
>They don't "steal" children.
Not as official policy, but the fact they've been banned form planets for this suggest some jedi probably fucked things up in the name of the greater good
>They also aren't "slave owners". They don't even actually own the Clone Army, they transferred it to the republic. They are in charge of the clones, but they treat them like friends and allow them to individualize and everything.
Some slave owners were also quite nice to their slaves. but jedi don't ever really push the mater of the facts clones don't have a choice. their is nothing wrong with exploring how fucked up it is the jedi are using a clone army, especially when its never brought up in the movies
Calling them out on this dose not mean you hate jedi.
>So she goes to Boba Fett, the man who has failed tons of times.
He also succeed plenty of times, he had killed jedi in the eu you know that
>Mandalorians aren't going to give her any more of an edge than Jedi.
What sounds better having force techniques, or having force techs along with the practical shit that all the nonforce users use
they've joined the Rebellion at large, and are no longer always on their own, but it's still clearly a show about Ezra and the crew of the Ghost, and I doubt that will ever change.
But it also has Buffy on it now
which is poor compensation for being denied the good guy shenanigans of Tua.
>the Empire blew up a planet, enslaves people, treats their soldiers expendably, ruined my home planet, and
jailed my innocent mother
>plus the only reason the Empire gives a shit about me at all is because of power vacuums after the destruction of the Death Stars
>but I'll still work for them anyways because MUH HONOR
I love this book but Ciena is straight up retarded. She's basically one of those warrior Mandos but not as violent.
>but that's a far cry from "literal child-nappers"
I don't think it's as far as you're treating it though. It's basically asking people that you know won't say no. Like Qui-gon. Annie was a literal slave, of course his mother wasn't going to say no even if she hated the idea of him being taken away and trained as a Jedi. The parents are picking the lesser of two evils.
>The Jedi come in and say, "this kid is powerful. we will teach him how to harness these powers and become a force for good in this galaxy".
>"also we're going to give them lethal glowsticks and train them to use them before they can even think for themselves"
Anon, it's literally the same situation that we faced when we for some reason "had" to go to school every single day of our young lives, only to gradually become intellectually and socially enriched as a result
I will agree that the removing of attachments is a little harsh, but as said before, it has precedent in that taking some of those attachments too far can eventually lead you down the Dark path. Granted, teaching attachment in moderation with consideration of the implications toward yourself and the world around you would have been a much better way to go about it, but the point was that the old Jedi were ever vigilant against the Dark Side because it would always have the very real power to become a considerable threat after the New Sith Wars(until they were made blind to its workings), and so the tenet was established with that in mind.
I don't understand why they always do that. In the show and in the movies. The good guys get paralized by the force and instead of piercing them with the lightsaber, they instead go and push them away or do a kick.
Even better. Haughty Imperials that have to be taught what to do in bed seems like it would be a lot of fun. Getting to order them around and letting them know they aren't the boss, has to be a great feeling.
>Except entire planets were getting genocided, and despite this they ignored it
This gets expanded in KOTOR 2 though. The Jedi knew something was very off about the Mando attacks. They suspected the Sith had some involvement but we were watching the situation.
>but jedi don't ever really push the mater of the facts clones don't have a choice. their is nothing wrong with exploring how fucked up it is the jedi are using a clone army, especially when its never brought up in the movies
The Jedi actually treated the Clones like people and they both got attached to each other. They really didn't have a choice not to use the Clone armies. The Sith was attacking the Republic using droids and they could not afford to sit around and wait. They were outnumbered by droids like 10,000 to 1 too. The Jedi had a duty to protect the Republic as did the Clones, they were both slaves in a way.
>also we're going to give them lethal glowsticks and train them to use them before they can even think for themselves
Are you kidding? Rewatch Attack Of The Clones. The children are trained in history, art, math etc. They don't just get weapons training, that comes later. These kids seem very intelligent and mindful as well. They should, they're basically home schooled by disciplined monks. Also, the baby lightsabers arent lethal.
this equates to a foster family wanting to keep the child after their real parent is found and wants the kid back. happens all the time in real life, and it's not like the foster family is painted as evil for this shit.
Probably Kaminoan, Kel Dor, or Nautolan.
Hammerhead-class cruisers and Interdictor-class cruisers from KotOR were pretty cool
Child soldiers aren't taught that these powers and skills are only to be used to defend themselves or others. It's like taking your kid to karate classes, just with laser swords.
Ludi was taken as a baby and the whole fiasco took place just a few months prior to the Clone Wars. So it's likely Ludi was still an infant and thus unable to decide for himself.
>This gets expanded in KOTOR 2 though. The Jedi knew something was very off about the Mando attacks. They suspected the Sith had some involvement but we were watching the situation.
Which i'm sure was a great comfort to the people of serraco and Cathar
Saying they were watching doesn't make it an example of compency
>The Jedi actually treated the Clones like people and they both got attached to each other. They really didn't have a choice not to use the Clone armies. The Sith was attacking the Republic using droids and they could not afford to sit around and wait. They were outnumbered by droids like 10,000 to 1 too. The Jedi had a duty to protect the Republic as did the Clones, they were both slaves in a way.
Except if a Jedi decided not to fight they were left alone.
If a Clone decided not to fight he would be court martialed (or killed)
they were not equals
And i'm not saying its a black and white issue, i'm saying that calling them out on this bullshit dose not mean the author hated jedi.
Nor is portraying them as incompetent because thats not a new or inconsistent thing ether.
Yeah it's kind of weird that they teach them combat so early on when a Jedi generally just goes around helping opposing societies talk things out instead of fighting and only use their lightsabers when shit hits the fan. You would think they would give them an education and help them become attuned to the force when they were kids and then when they're around 18 start teaching them more combat. I guess you can look at it like kids who join the US army training programs at 16 but if their base is attacked they are allowed to help defend it.
They were trained to be keepers of peace, until War broke out. The Jedi used to be play a part in negotiating and even during the Clone Wars tried Diplomacy. Holy shit man, do you even watch TCW or the Movies? This shit is explained if you pay attention.
I find the Jedi to dumb at times, but they and everyone else in the Galaxy was led into a trap by a Sith Lord playing the Waiting game.
>I guess you can look at it like kids who join the US army training programs at 16 but if their base is attacked they are allowed to help defend it.
Yeah except the Jedi kids are a lot younger. We see like 5 year olds being trained with lightsabres. The only kid we see fight though is probably 13 - 15. Still kind of young to be cutting people up with a laser sword.
training in martial arts has always had a long standing tradition of teaching people to calm themselves, develop discipline and focus. all three things essential in becoming in tune with the force.
He bet on Anakin's winning his freedom in the Podrace. Watto foolishly agreed to the bet.
Even then, Qui-Gon and Shmi had discussed the possibility of their taking Anakin away from Tatooine for a better life elsewhere, saying that Anakin "deserved more than a slave's life". Qui-Gon mentions that had Anakin been born in the Republic they Order would have identified him early, which already complicated the process of his going in for training. Qui-Gon would later take the opportunity to grant Shmi's wish by winning Anakin's freedom, but not before trying to include Shmi as part of the deal. It's literally what Shmi wanted. There was no crime committed.
>the fact they allowed the situation o get that, bad and couldn't see what was going on, how corrupt the senate was that so many planets would join the separatists
Did you miss the part where Palpatine was clouding their ability to see the future more and more?
>Except entire planets were getting genocided, and despite this they ignored it, all while in their back yard a sith engineered the murder of their own students
As I said, they're not soldiers. They're meant to keep the peace. At that time the Republic had its own army to use as well. They suspected the Sith were involved, but were watching the situation until sure.
>Not as official policy, but the fact they've been banned form planets for this suggest some jedi probably fucked things up in the name of the greater good
Did you even watch that episode of TCW? It was because of a misunderstanding between them and the Bardottans. This issue has been better-addressed earlier in this thread too.
> jedi don't ever really push the mater of the facts clones don't have a choice. their is nothing wrong with exploring how fucked up it is the jedi are using a clone army, especially when its never brought up in the movies
They had no choice. Count Dooku, a Sith Lord, was in charge of the separatists and was invading planets with the droid armies. Their only other option was to sit there and do nothing.
>He also succeed plenty of times, he had killed jedi in the eu you know that
That doesn't automatically make him a better option for learning how to defeat Jacen.
>What sounds better having force techniques, or having force techs along with the practical shit that all the nonforce users use
Force techniques. Jedi don't need the other shit because they have The Force as their ally.
>No she dosen't.
Yes she does, she's made it perfectly clear in her books she hates the Jedi. There was a reason she was let go from Star Wars, her hateboner for the Jedi and complete disregard for other people's characters, like killing off Mara Jade and not even giving the courtesy of telling Zahn, was becoming detrimental. She's now fucking up other things now.
Are you kidding?
The Jedi are keepers of the peace and not soldiers. They didnt train Jedi children for war, they trained them for intergalactic peace. Defending those who cannot defend themselves, helping planets with politics etc. The Lightsaber training is part of their warrior code when shit hits the fan. It's for knowledge and defense. The Clone Wars was a ploy by the Sith that ruined the Jedi code.
I am drawing paralells to a group of people who were made to serve in the army. they were not slaves, they were conscripted and were payed (and the eventual benefits they were promised, fuckin' government) for their service just like any other enlisted man.
It doesn't really matter what their motivation or intention is, if you're training children in how to use lethal weapons than you're training child soldiers. You can decide whether it's moral or not but I don't see how you can deny that they are child soldiers.

>waifu a jedi but hates my guts
>rival is edgy mando, but we are stuck together doing odd jobs
>jedi waifu keeps hunting me
>I like it, I always like seeing her
>asshole who keeps calling himself my 'rival' keeps taking me away at the last minute
>not even sure what a sith is
>Count Dooku, a Sith Lord, was in charge of the separatists and was invading planets with the droid armies. Their only other option was to sit there and do nothing.
They didn't even have that option. The Sith are the sworn Empire of the Republic and Jedi. No one wanted them to come back and make another Empire. They had to take Dooku and his kind down no matter what the cost was. Mace was willing to slaughter Palpatine and risk himself to the darkside to stop this from happening.
>if anyone ever gets any training in the use of any kind of weapon, they're now a soldier.
I was trained to use a bow when I was a kid, am I a soldier now? Is my mom evil because she wanted me to know how to use a bow, and later a pistol?
>Did you miss the part where Palpatine was clouding their ability to see the future more and more?
Did you miss the part they didn't realize that till the end.
>As I said, they're not soldiers. They're meant to keep the peace. At that time the Republic had its own army to use as well. They suspected the Sith were involved, but were watching the situation until sure.
As pointed out saying "they were watching" while entire planets were dying is not a point in their favor, and that ignores the Jedi Covenant Debacle which is utterly on them
>They had no choice. Count Dooku, a Sith Lord, was in charge of the separatists and was invading planets with the droid armies. Their only other option was to sit there and do nothing.
Which was ok when the mandalorians were fucking shit up
Also you ignored my point completely by just saying "but the bad guys left them no choice"
>That doesn't automatically make him a better option for learning how to defeat Jacen.
She was already a trained jedi, and she hit a limit in her abilities, Boba offered her an edge.
>Force techniques. Jedi don't need the other shit because they have The Force as their ally.
Yeah that doesn't mean shit really. That's as empty a statement as "God is my copilot"
But if you want to go that route
Boba was the boat
The Jedi were even fighting for their rights and wanted them to become full fledged members of society with all the rights entailed and not just conscripts of the Republic. They Jedi were the few people that seen them more than just soldiers/war equipment.
>if you're training children in how to use lethal weapons
So I guess if I taught my kid how to use a pistol, I'm making him a child solider? What about putting my kid into fencing class? Better yet, what about martial arts? All it takes is one good punch to kill someone.
Were you a part of some cult where all the leaders carried around bows all the time and got to cut off limbs and kill people with them and when you were old enough you were fully capable and trained to do the same?
>The Jedi were even fighting for their rights and wanted them to become full fledged members of society with all the rights entailed and not just conscripts of the Republic
Some jedi in some stories
Other jedi thought they were an a front to the natural order.
>"they were watching" while entire planets were dying
>let a few planets get wasted
>or get caught in a Sith trap and become destroyed with the Republic
But in all honesty dude, it didn't matter. Revan led the tip of the spear and everyone lost. He found what the Jedi council was looking for. But the Jedi were so fucked at that point, it didn't matter.
Post lightsabers and discuss each others' sabers.
I have a little bit of a headcanon that there's a transparisteel window over the emitter grille thing, so retarded little Padawans who can't into saber forms and proper saber handling won't sear their fingers off.
No, but I can still kill shit even today. I could be trained to use a band saw, that doesn't make me a carpenter. being trained to use a gun doesn't make you a soldier. The Jedi were never soldiers, they were never a military force at all until shit like the clone wars happened. Martial arts, of any kind, have always been used as ways to instill morals, ethics, focus, and discipline in people, and this was the exact thing that was the reasoning for lightsaber training. Just because you are fully capable of killing someone doesn't make you a soldier.
>Child soldiers are any children under the age of 18 who are recruited by a state or non-state armed group and used as fighters, cooks, suicide bombers, human shields, messengers, spies, or for sexual purposes.
Doesn't fit the definition. Jedi are trained to use lightsabers to defend themselves, not for attack.
>Did you miss the part they didn't realize that till the end.
You must not have payed attention. They say that the Dark Side is growing in power and clouding their vision in all of the prequels.
>As pointed out saying "they were watching" while entire planets were dying is not a point in their favor, and that ignores the Jedi Covenant Debacle which is utterly on them
Because they're not soldiers. They're peacekeeping monks, not an attack force.
>Which was ok when the mandalorians were fucking shit up
The Republic had a standing army then and they had no confirmation of Sith involvement.
Also, that's mainly the fault of EU writers.
>Also you ignored my point completely by just saying "but the bad guys left them no choice"
No, I addressed it by stating a fact. They had to enter the war because the Sith were involved and the Republic likely didn't have that many people knowledgeable in war tactics like them(canonically they fought wars against the Sith in the past). Notice how clones filled the ranks of ships and usually only a few leaders were regular humans like Yularen.
>She was already a trained jedi, and she hit a limit in her abilities, Boba offered her an edge.
That's pushing it.
>Yeah that doesn't mean shit really.
But it does. The Jedi literally operate by using The Force.
>That's as empty a statement as "God is my copilot"
God is not an all-surrounding magical field that allows some people to manipulate the world around them with telekinesis. But let's not bring religion into this.

How's it feel, bitches?
The Jedi were, as others have said, keepers of peace and the Lightsabers were the weapons that helped them fight, Sith, you know the people that caused countless trillions of people to suffer so they can amass power for themselves to get even more power. They trained for generations to fight those people so that wouldn't happen.

Why does JayJay "Gotta go backward before we go Forward" Abrams even try? His film is inferior in every single way. And he calls himself an artist? He's a joke. A meme director.
The Jedi during the KOTOR era were inefficient. They could have sent everyone out and still lost. They needed people like Revan and the Exile to revolutionize them but too little too late. The Mandos already launched their attack and destabilized everything. The Sith were sitting pretty watching everyone rip each other apart.
>no confirmation of Sith involvement.
Which is one reason why they were so hesitant because they assumed it could be a trap.
This thread needs more pikes.
I hate that there's no single long pole extension, and you have to do these stupid segments.
I like yours though, very simple, but the black and the grille give it a nice bit of flair.
You know I really like the concept art for Starkiller's Sabers. It's unfortunate there isn't a transparent hilt in-game or on saber forge.
If I have enough disposable income, I'll custom order a saber with a transparent hilt.
Palpatine pulled the whole 'Is the Jedi Order not subject to the Senate's authority?' thing, like he did each time he wanted something from the Jedi.
And the Jedi were naive enough to believe that their participation could minimize casualties and collateral damage.
Which partially was right due to the whole precognition/battle meditation thing, but also false because they threw their principles out of the window.
>Not... really? If you want a pretty good real life precedent, a lot of kids in Japan, especially those with Karate families, tend to start training in their specific arts at very young ages, usually taught either by their father or grandfather. The same is true of Okinawan Karate, the stuff which was actually developed to maim and/or kill in self defense situations. The kids may not understand the significance of it at first, but as they grow older they're given more and more history and detail to digest.
>You must not have payed attention. They say that the Dark Side is growing in power and clouding their vision in all of the prequels.
The fact they knew that, and yet still didn't telly do all that much to investigate is an issue, they knew some thing was up from the beginning and never really investigated till towards the end.
>Because they're not soldiers. They're peacekeeping monks, not an attack force.
They are knights of the republic (a problem in of itself) meaning they are meant to stand in defense of it, which is why they have their HQ in the republic capital, Also you keep ignoring the covenant which was not a military matter.
>No, I addressed it by stating a fact.
No you didn't cause my point was that there was nothing wrong with exploring the fact the Jedi do some fucked up things, using a slave army with out really questing it is part of that.
Saying they had no choice doesn't negate that its dubious nor make it not some thing worth exploring.
>She was already a trained jedi, and she hit a limit in her abilities, Boba offered her an edge.
Not really. She didn't give up her jedi powers, and she wasn't a padawan that said fuck it i'm gonna do some thing else. She knew her brother was to strong. and she needed an edge.
>But it does. The Jedi literally operate by using The Force.
Yes so do the sith, Saying She has the force and shouldn't;t use any thing else is stupid, and ignores all the jedi who use Blasters, or cybernetics, or any thing else to fill in the gaps.
> But let's not bring religion into this.
They had no choice once they found out Count Dooku a Sith Lord was in charge of the Separatists. Once Dooku became the leader of the Confederacy the Jedi had no choice in the matter. They couldn't just say, "Well this isn't our fight", because at that point it was their fight, it was the Jedi's duty to fight Sith and Dooku forced the ball in the Jedi's court and Chancellor Palpatine forced them to play it.
Have you even watched AotC?
That one I made while messing around with the program, here's my saber design.
>Darth Vader brought an end to a child-enslaving cult
I remember him murdering a room full of children.
>Luke Skywalker killed more than 2 million people
since when was it two million?
I mean, look at this.
This is my lightsaber, there are many like it but this one is mine.
>And people say Vader is the bad guy.
Vader's a bad guy that killed younglings and was the Apprentice and devoted right hand man of the Emperor that brought a Galactic wide Dictatorship that most likely killed billions of lives in his 25+ year reign. Yeah, he's a fucking bad guy.
I made this when I didn't know you could have more than one extension but I think it'd look good as a pike.
>What kinda hilt you want senpai?
>Are you planing on plugging a hole with that emitter?
That body does the world no favors.
Looks like the weapon of a Jedi Knight with a condition
Sleek, slim, practical effects.
I drew my dream saber a few nights ago. I need to get good at making 3d renders so I can get it custom built. I also just realized when I looked at >>78846250 that my emitter is very similar to Starkiller's.
>how could make the double edged saber worse?
What's it like having shit taste
The killing younglings thing sort of makes Vader's redemption in the OT a bit sour. He gets a sort of happy ending being a smiling ghost and all but it's like... this man brutally murdered innocent children...
...as opposed blowing up a planet and torturing his daughter (and his future son in law)
Mad Max grossed 375 million worldwide over 144 days before ending its run.
Force Awakens has grossed 781 million DOMESTICALLY in 22 days. It has literally doubled Mad Maxes entire take in 15% of the time.
Critics can fellate Mad Furiosa (let's not even pretend that movies was about Max, here) all they like, it's pretty clear which story people not only wanted to see, but wanted to see multiple times.
Wait, I've got something even better.

The only one who did relatively well was Kylo as he showed some evidence of Prequel-era Jedi training while treating his weapon as more of a European claymore. It didn't 'throw out' anything. Finn and Rey were not experienced duelists which is why their fighting was sloppy, clunky and for the most part strictly reactionary.
I need to work on my edginess. Keep going for the old and ancient look for some reason.
I really like the IMAX posters for TFA, but the film was incredibly mediocre.
Guess I'll just get a Raiders poster and put that up.
Rate my friends.
Change the color and you have potential.
Battle-worn, but not free from conflict.
3 points off for the emitter
People can say what they want about the content of Robert Zemeckis films, but he does know how to shoot in 3D better than almost anyone, up there with James Cameron in that center of knowledge.
>I'm glad Brom lived. I really liked the guy.
Husbandoing Imperials, anon, have you learned nothing from past ventures?
Watch, the first thing we see when Rebels comes back on is this guy getting Force Choked liked Captain Needa was.
It's only a matter of time until someone builds a lightsaber to halfsword with
Is it weird that i loved this movie but didn't liked the other 6?
Nothing wrong with is. Just know this, the shit you are listening to is not music, in my day we used to have respect for our elders and what the fuck is a Miley Cyrus anyway?
That's because it isn't really a Star Wars movie. It's a JJ-esque fast paced thriller that doesn't stop for breaths. Lacks that timeless mythical feel of the previous trilogies. TFA awakens feels very artificial and engineered by a committee and I doubt it will stand the test of time as well as the others have. Sure it made a lot of money but so has transformers and that's baseline generic schlock too.
That's just my opinion though. I'll say it's a fun enough flick but it kinda bored me. The visuals were stale and rehashed and it lacks any real depth beyond 'oh hey remember this from the OT!'
I love star wars from the OT to the PT, TCW and the EU but I didn't feel the magic in this new movie. In terms of cinema I'm worried star wars has lost that indie flare GL gave it and now it's destined to be MCU 2.0 for Disney.
I'm not one of those fans that needs to gorge themselves with star wars films. I was happy with what we were getting before the disney buyout. I just feel less is more when it comes to SW films, underworld was to be the most expensive tv show in history and TCW was beyond any budget of a cartoon. We're never likely to see dedication like this again and that's sad. Rebels is a massive drop in quality and so is TFA.
Notice how there was no flipping, the only time there was a twirl or flourish was done when the combatants were too far apart to strike, and the swings were heavy and had weight to them.
The prequel-style duels are fucking dead.
I don't know what it is with this design, but I love the forked front with the hanger bay in the middle, and the flat bridge is far easier to defend then with "modern" Star Destroyers.
There's only one person bringing back spins and it ain't Luke
A lot, then you had the Gravity Well dragging two Arquitens in the mess as well. So, at least 20, 000+ are dead. Depending on if the Interdictor was fully manned or if it just had a skeleton crew on-board with it being an experimental ship and all.
Blades and spikes are what make a cool handle! That, and elaborate artwork and jewels.
>Box office: $1.104 billion
So this must be one of the best movies of all time too, right? By your logic, at least.
Did AoE get less advertisement than the previous movies? I swear I saw like a couple adds that just tried to show off dinobots than I heard nothing and before I knew it the movie was on DvD.
Normally I'd say Marry Red, Fuck Blue, Trained by Green; but that's Barris, not Luminara.
So trained by Shaak so that I learn from a true master, marry Aayla and rest my head upon her pillowy bossom, and fuck Barris for one night of phenomenal dick in crazy.
What are some good stories about not-human-looking aliens? Don't care if they're Canon or Legends.
Knights of the Old Republic, starring the legendary Snivvian, Gryph.
No, it means people are going back to see it 3, 4 times. That's how you get those kinds of numbers. Yes, it's good. Deal with it.
Is he the main character of most of the comic, or just certain parts?
Get a load of this faggot.
Sorry we hurt your thread.
Picked up this print at a comic con in New Orleans today. The image doesn't appear to be online anywhere that I can find, so I thought I would share it with you guys. The artist is Jeffrey Wortham. File name is the title. Apparently the artist is on some tattoo show. Sorry for the craptastic camera work and shit lighting, I don't have a scanner big enough for this thing.
I believe we have the ability to talk about Waifus and TFA
Apart from being the sames species, Lumy looked cool in the prison jumpsuit, and not too different from Barriss, so I can understand.
Besides, they both were executed by the empire for treason
So did Anakin. The Dark Side has a way of making you change your mind.
So why haven't you joined the 501st/Rebel Legion/Mando Mercs yet?
>paying money to join glorified cosplay circlejerks
Ok so I just watched the "Overlords" episode of Clone Wars and are you shitting me?
The chosen one's job was literally to keep Ms. Light side and Mr. Dark side from destroying the fabric of existance?
And then Anakin basically just tells god to fuck off?
In her rant at the trial, she does make it clear that the Jedi are the ones who have fallen, and have become tools of the dark side. Still, her anger and willingness to kill innocent people show that she herself has fallen pretty hard.
>not owning a at least one (1) movie accurate costume
It's 2016, people!
Every post is a repost of a repost.
I'm so sorry anon. There didn't seem to be much interest in Campbell this year, at least on the main floor (I never saw too many people in his autograph line). I didn't go to any of the panels, as there wasn't really anyone I cared about there this year. The past couple of years I've mainly been going for the art. There seemed to be more stuff overall this year, but slightly lower quality content.
But hey, at least you got trips. And maybe another print will help ease the pain.
In other news, after being there for about 15 minutes, I heard a couple of 20 something year old guys discussing beating my ass for wearing a stormtrooper helmet with an MSU painjob. I probably should have thought about that before wearing it in another college's territory. Also, the plastic smell on the inside of the helmet was great for masking the smell of BO from the various other patrons.
They were the convention, and I can safely say that they have far lower standards than the 501st and Rebel Legion chapters that were there as well. One of them had a costume that looked like he got hit by a bus and never fixed it up.
>They were the convention, and I can safely say that they have far lower standards than the 501st and Rebel Legion chapters that were there as well
Of course they do, the Mando Mercs were formed because both legions wouldn't allow them in with OC Mando costumes that didn't even meet their quality standards. So they formed their own cosplay club where they could all dress up as donut steels and nobody gets on them for having Party City-tier costumes.
Honestly, I have no problem with them coming up with various unique costumes. In fact, I find some of them kind of neat. It's to be expected that in a galaxy that large, people would mix and match armor and modify it to suit their specific needs, but they need to have some sort of quality standards.
There was a pretty good Pre Vizsla there, who was only slightly overweight. There should be more Deathwatch costumes.
so im kinda new to the show so i have some questions...
>when does the rebels story occur?
>is it any good?
>does it look like wood? (al la clone wars)
Eh, not really. Mando Mercs DID start out because they were butthurt that the other legions wouldn't let them do what they wanted, but they're all pretty cordial with each other.
It's kind of telling that you rarely see Mando Mercs working alongside the others at events though, whereas you see folks from 501st and Rebel legions together all the time.
>>when does the rebels story occur?
4 or 5 years before A New Hope
>>is it any good?
It starts off a little rocky, but it quickly hits its stride.
>>does it look like wood? (al la clone wars)
No, everything is more rounded. All the fingers look like sausages unfortunately.
Hey family I don't know where else to ask this and I don't want to start a new thread
Where should I start with the Expanded Universe? I finally got around to watching TFA and I want to read the comics or something.
Start with The Thrawn Trilogy. You can read the books or the Dark Horse comic adaptation. Then check out Shadows of the Empire, again going with either the book or comic version. Afterwards check out the comics Dawn of the Jedi, Tales of the Jedi, Knights of the Old Republic, then the Knights of the Old Republic games. Also check out the the Kyle Katarn games and Battlefront 2.
Check out the download links in the OP. Someone made a link for old EU stuff that might have some of the things I mentioned. That or torrent them off kat.cr. Also assuming you've never used digital comics before you'll need to have a comic file reader so I recommend using this: http://comicrack.cyolito.com/
It would make sense, to at least some extent. Qui-gon would have to have been the one who taught Yoda to become a Force Ghost, right? So I'd totally buy that after the renegade Jedi found a way to immortalize himself through becoming one with the force Yoda might come around to his way of thinking on some things.
No, that's just how the Father interpreted the prophecy. It's playing off how Yoda says the prophecy may have been misread in Episode III. There are multiple ways you could read into "bringing balance to the Force." The Jedi assume that means wiping out the Sith, and the Father assumes that means keeping his children in check for the sake of the galaxy.
If you want evidence the Jedi Order is fucked up, just remember that the Jedi council tricked Anakin into thinking Obi Wan was dead basically as a joke.
>implying hating on bayformers hasn't become a meme like hating the prequels
>implying more than a fraction of internet savvy people would publicly admit to liking bayformers or eps 1-3
Have you been out and around in public in the last decade? Like, at all? Most people shit on bayformers for being a "popcorn" movie, y'know something you go to for a thoughtless fun time? C'mon son.
>tfw that scene where Han tries to talk his way out of the scam loan situation makes you want to watch Farscape again
Goddammit I want my ps3 back so I can watch the blu rays
The bottom two are the same, just different sides. It seems like this emitter was really popular.
Yellow's traditionally been my color, but that deep blue in TFA really made an impression. I think I like this better than any of my prior creations.
I wonder if the Hutts that don't form criminal empires end up being the online sperglords of the galaxy, bitching at each other on the holonet about their favorite Neimoidian cartoons and calling each other plebes for not accepting that Jedi Princess Kendalina is the most sublime, deep and complex show ever made but that the constant panty shots and gratuitous tit jiggling in no way influenced their opinion of it.
Jedi Princess Kendalina is an Intro to Philosophy class with fanservice added to cover it's rather shoddy production values. Little Bounty Hunter My'liiki is the superior complex character drama full of gratuitous fanservice.
This thing, it's a giant flying railgun.
Daily reminder that Ki-Adi Mundi was the first Star Wars characters that did some sick spins with his weapon, not TR-8R.
At the end of episode 3, everyone was tricked into thinking the jedi where trying to take over and make sheev the good guy.
And she kept rho 2 red sabers and said it suits her fine or something along those words
So I'm a fanfic faggot and I'm my character is getting a blaster that I want to make special.
I was thinking, beyond the fluff to suggest quality construction, that I would mention it used a focusing crystal instead of a focusing lens/prismatic crystal and have it shoot beams instead of bolts.
Help would be appreciated.
I'm ambitious, physically active and a second generation immigrant, so probably a Zabrak from one of the colony worlds.
That felt so pretentious.
One left in stock for £40 on Amazon
A beam could work, that or just blasts that provide a bit more kick than usual like with Chewie's bowcaster. Not too familiar with the components that typically go into blasters so that's just my suggestion as far as function
All my white female friends who saw TFA love Rey. Is Rey really a great character or are they just blinded by the fact that she's the first female female lead in a Star Wars movie?
She's a likable lead in a Star Wars movie, that shows potential and promise for some interesting developments in the future.
It's not rocket science. People liked Luke, people liked prequel Obi-Wan, people like Rey.
Well, there was a robot army going to war with them and their standing army couldn't keep up with that, they needed more troops, and a source of troops that could be replenished fast enough for fighting a mass produced army.
All of my black male friends hate Finn. Is Finn really a bad character or a they just salty about him not being the lead?
Eept it takes 10 years to grow a trooper, when it takes a whole let less effort to just draft people. But I wouldn't be surprised if the Senate/Sheev shot down any attempts at building a non-clone military to supplement the clones, because it wouldn't be popular with the voters.
>Asian market loves Poe "The Bro" Dameron
>Ensuring the gay interracial romance that the internet swears up and down is totally going to happen is confirmed neverever
It's a good feeling.
Are these star wars cartoons genuinely good or just pretty good for a kids cartoon?
People keep going on about rebels and clone wars, particularly that ashoka character, but there's a lot of clone wars episodes and I'm not sure I wanna devote weeks of my life to a cartoon aimed at children.
>10 years to grow a trooper
So most of the clone army that was fielded and replaced on levels of wartime need was already being grown, in full, before the war had even begun, and nobody was allowed to be suspicious of this fact?
He's a flimsy character. He's never killed and couldn't kill civilians, but happily slaughtered the only people he's ever known(Fellow Storm Troopers). he instantly accepts his new identity as Finn so, within the first few minutes he's already completed what I had assumed would be a major point of his character development.
By the time he meets Rey it's established he's not a Stormtrooper badass, just a goofy space nigga who wisecracks and does goofy shit at every opportunity.
Where one would assume much of his story would be dealing with the guilt of being a part of the New Order, he chooses to run away. HOWEVER, instead of his running away shifting to his decision to fight against it being a major changing point in his character's struggle with some internal conflict, it's literally just to get pussy.
Now, all we have is a black guy oogabooga'ing around on a hunt to slam some white pussy, a quest he fails at by being friendzoned twice.
He was even used as a mouthpiece of subverting 'patriarchal' tropes with the hand holding sequence.
In short, we hate him because he's a hollow character with a frankly embarrassing motivation in the film.
A black guy.
In a nutshell, Finn is a cold realist, but with a heart that makes him do what is right.
I pity people who can look at him only as a self-centered deserter who's only looking out for his interests.
>herp I cannot into human personalities
I like Poe's and Finn's chemistry and I'm okay with both a romantic relationship between them and a simple bromance.
There is only one actually interesting shipping though. Reylo would have great story potential.
Is the public aware of this, though? I mean the Jedi are aware of how the clones work but I doubt the average civvie or even senators know of the logistics needed to pump out clones.
The internet's fucking killed bromances so Finn just being close platonically with the first dude that ever treated him like a normal human bean means they're obviously reenacting Brokeback Muunilist every night.
Also you're shipping incest senpai go back to your animais
>Reylo would have great story potential.
But the Jedi should know, and how NONE of them ever figured that someone set up the entire clone wars and just dropped out because they were literally playing into some schemey bastards hands is ridiculous, then again, it's the prequels Jedi, so the fact they didn't lose any limbs in lightsaber practice was impressive.
>Yfw the prequels had better representation for black male characters
I wonder how Sam L Jackson reacted to Finn? He was really excited to see a another black jedi.
Why would a trained stormtrooper have a problem with killing people who were trying to murder him? He couldn't kill defenseless civilians, but that doesn't mean he is a pacifist. I guess the "WOOOOHHOOOO" parts weren't necessary, but other than that, Finn's actions aren't out of character.
He also isn't a coward. It's fucking brave to stay true to your ideals and it's just as brave to fight a pissed off dark side warrior with a lightsaber. Finn might not be as strong as Rey or as cool as Poe, but I think he is the most relatable Star Wars character.
