After she got dumped by Dooku of course.
A Dengar is fine too.
>AU where Qui-Gon let Obi get his dick wet as a Padawan and he quit the order, died old and happy after years of dealing with an entire species hellbent on chimping out at all times.
After watching Moulin Rouge, I feel like Satine and Obi-Wan are like these star crossed souls traveling across time and space. They try to be together, but every time they get close it just fails spectacularly.
Thousands of years. Different galaxies. The same souls, trying to come together, only for tragedy to keep them apart each time.
Moulin Rouge is beautiful and fun and entertaining and the music is amazing.
Based D'harhan coming through
Its a good jukebox musical. And in any case, Ewan 's a fun actor.
Also, this is a photo of Nicole Kidman in 2008. The second seasons was being made at the time, so its more than likely that Satine is based off the actress.
>not AU where Obi-wan lets his emotions for her take over and he and Anakin swap roles
I prefer suffering, but your AU sounds pretty comfy too
She's better than Padme in
I'd say he was at his most strongest during The Clone Wars era. Slicing up battle droids and commanding clone troopers on the front-lines is a great bodyworkout.
>Kylo Ren's Japanese VA is the same dude that voiced Char Aznable
Wait, FUCKING CHAR is Kylo?
Give me this Jap Dub. I need this
Embo for sure, but there are so many cool bounty hunters. Cad Bane and C-21 Highsinger are runner-ups. Pic sort of related.
Maul is hovering around the old Malachor Temple (or a Sith temple at least).
Ezra and co. get separated.
The Inquisitors attack.
Maul is all like "Hey... Don't you hate the Empire? So do I. I can teach you how to save your friends. You want to save your friends, don't you?"
And that goads Ezra into touching the evil shape and unleashing Snoke
Little of both.
Then he'll pose as an old Jedi master and stay on their crew for a while, manipulating them to get closer to Sheev and trying to turn Ezra to the dark side.
I just hope they don't drag him into too many hilarious hijinks with the crew. Would diminish his character.
Two episodes in Umbara and I can't explain how epic this is. Space nam is awesome. I remember hating this show for no reason but I gave it a chance and now can't stop watching it.
Also, orange butt cheeks is the best girl
I may be a tad drunk but I'm pretty sure what I said was literally true.
Ezra is going to unleash Snoke.
Look at the crossguard saber he picks up in that scene.
That's the show going "HOLY SHIT LOOK AT HOW WE'RE CONNECTING TO TFA".
In universe, we know that Snoke taught Kylo on how to make his saber.
So that's where we at. Ezra is in a place that has sabers like Kylos. He touches some ancient evil shit that is released.
Put that shit together and we have Snoke being unleashed
The Umbara arc constantly reminds me of the limitations of the series.
Like, it's a whole legion.
Thousands of clones.
And yet at pivotal moments, we only see a few.
The show tries to avoid it by having only a couple clones go on secret missions and the like, but in moments where we should see hundreds of clones, only a dozen are visible.
What a waste.
Good arc though.
Not many left in the series, anon. Enjoy it while you can
Take it to /tv/
Some people think "Old Master" is Snoke, when it is essentially confirmed to be Maul.
Some other people are also going with the idea that Ezra will somehow turn into Snoke at some point.
because LSG said that Snoke is a character that has existed in this universe before, and what better way to show that, than to include him in a brand new canon adventure!
Also we can expect Maz sometime, right?
This man is a legend, he made the Star Wars movies like 3 times better. He is my grandadfu.
Here's my take.
We know that Snoke is ancient as fuck.
We also know that Ezra comes across an ancient lightsaber (crossguards).
Put two and two together, and we have the idea that Ezra comes across an ancient place. We see great evil in the preview trailer. Like something being released or unleashed.
Maybe that's Snoke.
The fact of the matter is that Snoke came from nowhere. He's clearly well versed in the Dark Side. He needs context.
The movies are so busy as they are. Isn't Rebels the best to show the origins?
Here's what will happen. Ezra and Co. will come across an ancient Sith repository or something. Ezra, under the influence of Maul, will let something out. Something ancient. Something evil.
It will fly off into space and they will stand together and go "Oh fuck, that'll come back to bite us one day"
I think he deserves more attention in the new EU.
Honestly, I wish Krell wasn't evil.
Like, clones are indeed just clones. They are a number. They are inherently replaceable. They are made to be expendable.
They exist solely to die in the place of Republic citizens. That is their only (in the eyes of the Republic and Jedi) purpose.
I'd be nice to have a general, who is otherwise totally correct, go against Anakin et al. who see the clones as real people.
Because they aren't real people. They're replacement coffins.
Nah I think Umbara displayed the amount perfectly. Obviously you can't fit that many clones on the screen but the whole atmosphere and all of the shots you see of many different clones during the battles help make it feel like a big battle.
>Tfw we'll never see big battles like these ever again in Rebels
Dear midichlorian haters,
The force is still a mystery, midichlorians aren't the force. You're basing your opinion off of misconceptions. They're the gateway to the force, allowing living beings to tap into the cosmic energy field and wield it. Without midichlorians no one in the SW galaxy would know the force even exists because they'd be deaf to it, you could say we live in a world where midichlorians don't exist.
They don't take away the mystical nature of it at all for me, it just adds another layer to the lore and while some believe the force being like a skill (meaning anyone can learn it) rather than inherent is a better idea, that's still quite valid anyway. Everyone has midichlorians they're the building blocks of life in SW, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Tarkin have them in low numbers like many others. It may give them a low level sense of intuition; for instance hans quick reflexes and wookiees symbiosis with their ecosystem, but they're nowhere near jedi levels. Midichlorian counts are performed by jedi to cull younglings with a noticeable sensitivity that would be dangerous if they grew up untrained.
I believe it's possible that anyone can learn the ways of the force to an extent and nothing in canon has proven against this theory wrong as of yet.
So my opinion is they don't take away anything from the story at all. It's just overblown hyperbole fabricated by traditionalist fans finding flaws with anything that doesn't jive with them. Yet the midichlorians where created prior to Star Wars (1977) so they've been a part of the franchise for years. The story of the prequels demanded a more in depth look at the force in contrast the mysticism we had in the OT and I believe it was handled better than it could have been. I'm all for a debate on it, though everything I said here is valid fact and some speculation, all things George Lucas has said. Also TFA is the true destroyer of the force, how can a universal omnipotent energy field go dormant?
Something I don't get is, the only Clone Trooper designation we ever learn is CT-####, yet there are millions of troopers made and in service at one time. Do they just recycle numbers for units that hopefully won't ever meet up, or what?
So what are they going to refer to The Old Republic era as in the new canon, now that the term "the old republic" is being used to describe the Galactic Republic?
That goes against the whole point that Clone Wars was trying to make though. It repeatedly shows that the Jedi value the clones and see them as individuals.
That conversation between Plo and his clones still sticks out to me.
>Why are you so certain no one is coming.
>We're just clones sir, we're meant to be expendable.
>Not to me.
>They die by the millions
Wasn't the "official" number of clones used, in total, only 5.2 million, or something? Hundreds, maybe thousands at a time I could understand.
Filoni said that he doesn't want to further a story created by another person, with the reverse happening for his characters; i.e. no Ahsoka in the movies if she is planned to be killed.
But again, that devalues Plo's view of the clones.
It's like droids.
Obi Wan doesn't give two shits about droid lives. But Anakin does.
If everyone believes the same thing, there's no value in holding that belief.
Jedi like Plo Koon are special exceptions
>>Why are you so certain no one is coming.
>>We're just clones sir, we're meant to be expendable.
>>Not to me.
Those clones are fucking morons. There's a Jedi master beside them, obviously someone's coming to pick them up
>Super bounty hunters, supposed to be the very best at what they do.
>all of their depictions in the movies shows them failing at doing what they're supposed to do.
Why do people like the Fetts again?
Do you have any weird Star Wars memorabilia? I found this Jango Fett PEZ dispenser while I was cleaning out some stuff.
Otherwise they're literally just "Cool Armor: The Character" But the thing is, they've just been that since fucking forever. I say fuck em, leave em dead, and leave them shitty. Better to focus on better characters.
Why does the amount of people believing in that devalue the belief in seeing Clones as individuals and people? The initial point at the beginning was that Clones were, well, clones. The view was the same as yours in that they were nothing more than tools. But to see the humanization of them and seeing Jedi value them as the series went on was supposed to challenge that view.
It wasn't just Plo that held that view. You saw that in many other Jedi as well. Yoda had his talk with Clones about individuality. Shaak Ti placed an emphasis about the individual during training. Most of the Jedi generals cared about their troopers. Even Obi-Wan had a good friendship with Cody and the troopers under his leadership.
I hate how Vader became Vader in one fell swoop.
Vader should have been born in a gradual process.
Anakin should have been stabbed, impaled, and had his limbs cut off in a gradual process.
Him going from 95% human to 50% machine was too much.
Vader should have been a slow process.
>Anakin swearing himself to destroy the Republic's enemies (i.e. Palpatine's enemies)
>him getting hurt each time
>symbolic of him slowly losing his grasp on morality and righteousness
>Why do people like the Fetts again?
Most people like Boba because of the old EU.
Others like Jango because unlike Boba, he wasn't an jobber who got beat by a blind man and got swallowed by a sphincter in the desert. Jango was a depicted badass and it took the most skilled fighter in the Jedi order to take him out.
Only 30ish Jedi get rounded up at the center of the stadium, only for most of them to be thrown right away on the frontline. Kinda harsh, even for space wizards. Most of the survivors where council members or top-tier Jedi like Kit Fisto and Aayla Secura.
Also most Jedi on Geonosis where specialized non-combatants who happened to be ready and present in the Jedi Temple. Most of them where Form VI users, a crappy saber style for bookworms.
>that is the main theme of the prequels if anything
Episode 3, if it must have been a thing, should have ended with the mask coming down. Not his whole body being replaced. Just the mask. The final step between Anakin and Vader.
To be fair, the scene in RotS was pretty fucking baller as is, but it was too much
>Disney puts out a comic through marvel
>it's the secret tale of how Boba Fett got his armor.
>All the mystery and secrets to be revealed!
>It's two pages of Boba walking into a pawn shop in plain clothes, then walking out of it with the armor on.
Except I'm prettu sure the databank states that Snoke was around to witness the Empire rising.
I'd say that by Ezra's time the Empire's a well established force that isn't so much on the rise as it is maintaining it's dominant position.
Remember when the Main Title wasn't weak has all hell?
Like Episode VII?
All of the music was fantastic.
>"Attack of the Clones" by John Williams starts playing.
Dude, we know what happened.
>Luke starts his own Jedi fanclub
>starts shit going
>Ben Solo gets all antsy in pantsy about the Dark Side
>betrays Luke and goes find the people who can understand his angst
>gets in with Snoke and the Knights of Ren
>they go back to Luke's new School of Gifted Youngsters
>kill up the place
>Luke realizes that he failed as a teacher
>goes mope for 10 years
That's it. That's literally it
Do holocrons have holonet? Cause otherwise I don't see a sealed evil hidden in a shitty place witnessing the birth of a galactic empire. Unless said evil has the ability to project itself beyond great distances and... oh.
Didn't Snoke whisper to Rey during her Force vision? I think we're on to something.
Didn't he though? The whole point of said mission was to get Padme out of the picture so Sidious would remain unopposed for creating an army for the republic. The intent was to kill her, for sure. But in the end his employers got what they wanted because of him.
Well they did say he was searching for a Jedi temple or something. But then again the guy could bullshit Dagobah's hyperspace coordinates so he probably had time for a lot of shenanigans.
Now I kinda want to see a depressed Luke going into the Unknown Regions to mope only to be constantly needed as a Jedi for weird civilizations, slowly forcing him to accept that yes, the galaxy still needs Jedi despite sucker-punching them with crappy destinies all the time.
The Republic and Empire got a truce at the battle of Jakku, which happened just after Endor.
The TFA galaxy is like the 1950s and 60s Europe.
The Nazis are gone, but who is left?
Some planets choose to join the New Republic. Some choose to be independent.
Some choose (or are annexed according to Republic propaganda) to join the First Order, an independent union.
No one can directly declare war. Because it's all a stand off.
Up until the Star Killer Base destroys the Republic, that is
>Its a Battle of Geonosis film
>Vode An starts playing
F-fuck you, I'm not crying...
>But then again the guy could bullshit Dagobah's hyperspace coordinates so he probably had time for a lot of shenanigans.
Considering Dagobah even has a name, I would assume it was plotted out by either the Republic or the Empire, but largely ignored once it was learned to be full swamp shit. Wouldn't be hard to get coordinates after that.
Is Cham Syndulla the only male Twi'lek that isn't ugly?
W-will she survive in Rebels?
I know we're going to eventually have a purge of TCW characters but I hope she survives. She needs to fight on in memory of her nerra. ;_;
He still looks like he has acromegaly.
Fucking male Twi'leks need to lay off the test boosts.
Makes their dicks and balls small.
No wonder Twi'lek females look to other races for satisfaction
You either need headphones, better headphones or a wider variety of music to understand differences in. It is very obvious that the main theme for TFA was a lot weaker sounding than the other six.
Not everyone got what they wanted.
Seriously? Each movie has some unique tracks that help it stand out. Listen up next time you marathon the movies man. And yeah, the main theme was weaker because John Williams wasn't able to perform in London, he had to make do with a smaller orchestra. I think all of TFA's music suffered from this.
Jesus Christ, the war was not kind to him... He aged worse than Kenobi and Yularen combined.
Dooku was the one to purge the planets from the records, right? It would make sense that they would be able to reappear for public travel use with the Empire, since Dooku would have been working for it if he hadn't lost his head.
So, is she Numa?
>Jesus Christ, the war was not kind to him
Rebels makes every face longer.
And years age makes cheeks sallow and eyes sunken.
He doesn't even crow's feet or exaggerated nasal labial lines.
What >>79143101 said. Compare the opening notes of the Main Title in TFA against the one in literally any other Star Wars film. It hasn't been this weak since A New Hope almost 40 years ago. Listen to the comparison between TFA, ROTS, and A New Hope
https://youtu.be/y8ac1Qg-r-8 - TFA
https://youtu.be/mpNUoWkUFC8 - ROTS
https://youtu.be/x2J5Oifxp7w - ANH
Shoulderplate and the drawing of her doll on her uniform strongly hints it's Numa.
And yet going by TFA finding the first Jedi temple is damn hard.
As is finding the galaxy's first "life-making" planet, if TCW is to be believed.
And they did lose Kamino for a while.
>Just noticed it's a clone armour shoulderplate
Listen really closely to first 5 seconds of TFA. To avoid sounding too musical, it it's less 'full'. Less complex. The instruments, especially brass, are playing the music differently, and more sparingly.
This carries through the entire film.
>Really like star wars
>enjoyed all the movies, on one level or another.
>read the thrawn books
>come to this thread
>all of these people crying over Boba Fett, or Jango, or some shit that happened in the books, or something from the cartoon, or the music, or the 3d
Jesus fuck. What is wrong with you people? I guess if you like something you really should stay away from internet groups about it. It's all just bitching about nothing, fuck.
I just upped the volume in youtube and it sounded the same.
I can assure you I am not, you all look very silly to me complaining about the music like you are. All the Star Wars movies sounded the same to me, in the theater and at home.
Well, what would you like to talk about, anon?
Yeah, but the scene doesn't make it look like there's that many of them, at best I assumed there were 75-100.
At the end, we only see 13 alive (a few are missing since we see them there, but they show up alive later, like Plo Koon, and Ayla), so the fact that it was 200 was just odd.
Can't believe nobody has posted him yet.
Daily reminder that it's JJ's fault that TFA's soundtrack sounds weaker.
His filming schedule only allowed John Williams to score individual scenes over the course of 5 months instead of all at once like with the previous 6 films. It also didn't allow him to use the London Symphony Orchestra. He had to use a freelance Orchestra for the film. That's why so many of the tracks, primarily the Main Theme, sound so "empty" compared to the other films.
IIRC the prequels all used the same recording so that Williams could focus on the rest of the score.
Only Kamino was purged.
Jesus Christ just compare RotS to TFA. It's(TFA) so weak and its almost monotone in a way compared to RotS.
Uhh, no it won't. Raising the volume wont add more instruments.
Cham's just looks like a regular shoulderpad that just so happens to have a yellow streak. It looks too big compared to Numa's.
Lucas gave Williams the un-scored movie essentially all at once, so he could write and have the music performed within a few weeks/months.
JJ gave it to him scene by scene as they were decided on, which took a significantly longer time to get through. He couldn't book the LSO reliably for all that time.
If you can't hear it, then that's your thing. But the difference is audible to others in the thread. If TFA sounds fine to you, then that's wonderful, but that doesn't mean we're silly discussing the music. The score is just as important in Star Wars as the the visuals in the movie.
>The score is just as important
Welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway, the game where everything is made up and the points don't matter, just like the new Battlefront.
We're gonna play a game called Dating Service Video, where Anons post image macros of Star Wars characters and pretend like they're making a dating service video in order to hopefully score some sweet Rylothian poontang. Or whatever they're into. Jawas maybe, I dunno.
So, Jango was a Mandalorian or not? And what about Boba?
does he survive?
go back to sucking Bob Barker's cock, you fat fuck.
it doesnt really matter, boba is the heir to mandalore
Yep. I can upload them if you guys want or I can give a mini tutorial on how to download them yourselves.
They're not. Though a poorly worded sentence on the jetpack Databank entry on SW.com could easily lead someone to believe they are(*cough* The Wook *cough*)
No. Boba uses Jango's helmet to try and give Mace a one way ticket to Allah's snackbar on a downed Venator in TCW. He then uses some other kind of helmet for the rest of his appearances in TCW.
What >>79143890 said is partially correct.
The way JJ and Lucas direct are very different. Lucas gives the entire complete, film to Williams to score.
JJ's editing process is moment to moment. They were still editing TFA until their deadline of release. As such Williams does score for a completed film, and scores for what he has in front of him, which can and will change upon the next revision.
TLDR: The LSO is incompatible with JJ's editing process.
Those drums were based as fuck, but it, despite being amazing, was a totally forgettable theme compared to the rest in Ep. 3.
So much good music in that movie.
In that regard, best in the PT
>all those comments about Snoke=Plagueis
For fucks sake
>The way I see it, if you notice the music, the movie isn't doing it's job right.
That's up to the director and the composer. Music can call attention to a scene, enhance a performance, change the mood, or otherwise.
George sought John Williams for Star Wars because he understands classical film scoring. The style of motifs, themes, and undercurrents that help bind the film together.
That's one way to do it, perfectly valid, and another ways, which Star Wars generally fits into, is that the music should absolutely grab your attention, as much as everything on-screen.
It's one complete package. The music is as important as the sound effects is as important as visual effects and acting.
Best scene and music coming through
>the music that plays when Luke breaks
Best in the series
RotJ is shitty in many ways, but in this scene, it elevates itself
>John Williams... understands film scoring.
I'll agree with you, because beyond the opening theme and the "HAAA WAAAAA" in Phantom Menace, I honestly couldn't tell you if there was any music at all in these movies.
Gotcha, will start uploading them. I'll link a MEGA, but its gonna be a while, they're each about 1.2 GB.
Well Mandalore in Legends referred to the leader of the warriors. Going by how you describe it was a role shared by Pre Vizsla and Satine, and then only Vizsla once he took over. Then Maul when he was betrayed by Vizsla and killed him.
But they only technically filed the role since the title doesn't exist in canon yet. We'll have to see if the upcoming Mando-centric Episode recanonizes it.
I've started watching Clone Wars in no particular order. Am I still able to participate in this threat or has all the clone wars fire burned out? Just give it to me straight don't sugar coat it.
God, Revenge of the Sith had the best opening out of all of the Star Wars movies for me.
>Those drums playing
>Pan over to lone cruiser
>See Anakin and Obi-wan flying
>That feeling of 'HOOLY SHIT' when they fly over the bow and see the huge battle going on.
I remember everyone being so hyped in the theaters when that happened.
Even JJ understands how important the music in Star Wars is, even if the score to TFA was weak.
That would require a new recording.
Absolutely. We still talk Clone Wars here. Many people are watching it for the first time.
But seriously this bitch has the weakest murder motive ever. But I understand what they were going for: for once it wasn't Palpatine
It was too... plastic.
Christensen's Anakin was too plastic.
It was like
"Oh no. You are covered in droids. Woe is me."
The music is great, but the scene is wooden.
I'd like it a lot better if you could tell that Obi Wan and Anakin liked each other
this version doesn't have the intro drums (drums come in later) but I like it better
Like I said, I only know, for sure, that the opening theme and whatever that song was when they fought Maul were in the movies.
The opening I remember because there's literally nothing else happening, and the Maul fight is because they're singing at me.
the rest of the music in the movies works the right way, so I don't notice it.
Villain motives in TCW tend to be very weak. Pic related, awesome as that episode was.
>no cute Twi'Lek gf to cuddle like pic related.
I WANT TO DIEE.
You got any more cute TIE pilots?
Doesn't matter if they are male of female, I just love the uniform.
Maybe Numa's was refitted for her. Or the design team fucked up. Not like it's the first time it's happened.
have you seen otaking's tie fighter short film?
So I have a question for you. Well not a question but an opinion on how I can make this..idea work. Long time ago, when I didn't have welding for 5 hours a day I was a voice actor around here doing some requests time to time. School got in the way and I kinda dropped off the god damn earth. So this is where I'm coming from.
Though this is useless info, I just wanted to share. Sorry for the blog post.
I have an Idea for you all. Now, my idea is an audio drama focusing on two Imperial Pilots who crashed on Hoth. They were stuck there stranded. When shot down, they lucky hit into a bank of snow. Causing minor wounds and just over all minor damage besides being knocked out. The story will cover how they make it out alive. Trying to find ways to contact the Empire to get them off the Frozen Waste land.
Thoughts? I already have another voice actor for the second pilot.
Will we ever have more large scale space battles like Coruscant again? I just want to see thousands of fighters zipping around enemy ships as those ships hammer enemies with turbolaser broadsides
Was this the best Clone Wars episode?
fucking Lucas. He's honestly one of the most legendary comedians in our generation. He makes his self-inserted character double-wield and hip-fire Greedo in the cantina.
>Lucas literally shot first
Kudos to the man.
Another point: Anakin is so much more likeable in this than he is in the prequels. Giving him his own padawan to look after really rounds him out.
Katie Lucas wrote that episode, I think.
But yes, Papa Papi was based. He knows how the game is played, and he can back his words in a fight.
While we're still talking about soundtracks, more specifically from Revenge of the Sith, I'm surprised no one posted this one yet.
>Those fucking trumpets.
Sounds like Enemy Mine without the balls to male Enemy Mine
>let's have down pilots meet up with another who totally fits their belief system
>and then they sing songs and make a rocket to escape
That gives me great pride.
I'm Impressed you found out who I was.
That was an awful pun.
Hm, Never heard of it. I shall look into that.
What can I do to make it different.
Twi'Leks being sluts is a BioWare thing from KotOR to TOR. But they are used as sex slaves because they are one of the hottest races. I wonder why they don't use Togrutas too.
I've always hated audiophiles, and people that say shit like "the music is so rich in its complexity" and crap like that. Probably because I had to deal with a dumb mother fucker who insisted that I wasn't listening to music right because I didn't have whatever dumb shit he spent hundreds of dollars on.
It's just fucking noise.
>Ezra, under the influence of Maul, will let something out. Something ancient. Something evil.
But why does it have to be Ezra? If anyone with Dark Side and/or Force powers can activate/free whatever is inside of the temple, why didn't Maul just do it himself?
The roster is expanding more and more.
Daily reminder that your beloved Zannah fucked and loved one of that ugly Twi'lek males.
Zabrak horns look pretty vestigial though, looks like they'd have to hit you pretty hard and in the right place for them to fatally injure
It's more of a coincidence. Every race can be enslaved, and many have been at one point or another. Twi'lek slaves have just become a casting tradition at this point, but you can use any race to fulfill the alien slave babe trope. We just don't see them too often because writers and artists like them some twi'lek and human slave girls.
not if their heroism stat is low
How would that droid function for so long?
Unless this is during the clone war.Would it ever be possible for a Droid to be able to think for it's self. Besides the control ships, would there be any way for them to function with out one?
Clone Wars, man. He goes from just being able to keep pace with Darth Maul's saberstaff (still my favorite part of the duel, just Obi-Wan vs Maul) to eventually treating Grievous' four blade formation as child's play
Obi-Wan's martail development is legendary
>tfw you will never be a mando qt's slave boy
The control ships actually get phased out over the course of the clone wars, since TPM revealed the huge tactical weakness they presented. They show up every now and then in TCW episodes both to make plots go smoothly and because of the logistic advantage of networking all your droids together, but it becomes rarer and rarer over the course of the show to display how sophisticated CIS tech is becoming between AOTC and ROTS. Then in ROTS, central control systems are all but extinct and all droids in the CIS are operating independently except for a large kill switch the separatist leaders have with them on Mustafar, but that's a different thing entirely, and is easily reversible by manually restarting the droids by yourself, which is how most CIS holdouts kept going after Mustafar.
Is Sheev the most OP character in Galaxy of Heroes?
I didn't mind dumb B1s. They got some good jokes in every now and then, and got to feel sympathetic at times. If you wanted to present a real, intelligent threat, you'd throw a column of B2 Supers, BX commandos, droidekas, magnaguards, and tacticals at the clones and listen to those delicious Dee Bradley Baker screams as they die like plastic-armored lambs.
Stormtrooper wins easy. Remember the conservation of ninjutsu applies to stormtroopers but is reversed for battle droids. B1s are only dangerous in massive hordes of blasters with legs. Stormtroopers are only dangerous in a 1-on-1 fight.
The booty game in that show was on point
To be honest, even in the 80s we knew that the reason Vader wore the suit was because "he had been fatally injured by lava in a battle with Obi-Wan in a volcano".
George talked about it in magazine interviews even back then.
Season 1 isn't kind to him, but he grows into a true dastardly slimeball in Season 2 and 3, and more of a treat to watch. He also tanks Kenobi much better in their duels. Season 4 and 5 really improve his track record, and Massacre is just so deliciously awesome for him. You basically watch him
slither his way out of an honest duel and bulldoze through hordes of Force-zombies before ruthlessly putting down an entire tribe of witches. Whole episode made me fall in love with Grievous again.
Cool but check out these hips
He'll have his little moments in the rest of the series. Most of the time, outside of exposition, enjoy the Jobber Express.
Cut was a lucky son of a bitch. Er... test tube.
There was also that episode in the Youngling arc where we see a return to some Genndy Grievous quirks, such as using his legs and feet as offensive weapons
Always love his back-and-forths with Obi-Wan. It really makes me sad that Grievous and Anakin were never allowed to meet in the show thanks to RotS. I feel like they would've had some great moments.
This makes me happy and sad.
Happy: Because god damn this show was fucking amazing. Got really dark too.
Sad: Rebels will NEVER live up to this. The animation, the fights, everything. Rebel is nothing more than a shadow in the Clone Wars Glory.

Funny, because people were saying the same thing about TCW in comparison to the clone wars cartoon. My how things have changed.
All of you, sanitation. 7 years sanitation, no trials.
This is the first time I've seen Dooku be actually intimidating. Usually he's just Palpatine's errand boy but suddenly:
>lightsaber fighting three opponents at once in pajamas
Well okay you're cool now.
I never got why they gave him less fingers in TCW. Here he has at least three fingers for each arm, but in TCW he only had two
With no thumb those sabers should be sliding out of his grip
I've tried to remake the voice of Kalani. But I can't get it perfect. I get close! I get close. Yet not perfect...
My problem is the robot effect, I can make one, but not to the degree they used.
cheaper to animate.
TCW did wonders for Dooku. He's more than just Christopher Lee being Christopher Lee. He feels like a sinister, insidious Sith Lord worthy of one day heaving the Sheev.
Intercourse doesn't do anything for him. The only way he can get off is by butchering Jedi.
Is it good? I'm only checking in this thread to know more of Poe
TCW did a lot of things right but it did a pretty terrible job with Grievous. I get toning him down to be more in line with the movie version, but they took it so far it became hard to believe he was an accomplished jedi killer or a halfway competent general.
IIRC the only time he actually fights and kills a jedi on screen, it was a freshly promoted padawan with anger issues, and he still needed to pull a surprise blaster to win.
>Vader lets Ezra and Kanan escape so they can lead him to the Rebel fleet.
>Fleet gets decimated.
>This tactic is so successful that he uses it again in ANH.
Filoni confirmed as a deepest lorefag.
his info if youre wondering
I think they're talking about comics, not the movie.
I thought Grievous was fine as soon as they stopped focusing on him and let him bleed into the background as little more than a CIS thug. We started getting bigger war stories with one-off, disposable generals, or Force-focused stories with Sheev, Dooku, Maul, and the Nightsisters. Grievous fit into a good spot of being a dastardly sleemo who occasionally gives the Jedi a challenge. He's best when he's not the focus of a story, and thankfully he stopped being focused on after his poor showing in Season 1. Trying to make him Blofeld was terrible. Letting him be Oddjob was amazing.
Why don't the films focus on the mystical side of Star Wars as much as the cartoons seem to? I mean, they show off the Jedi with their superpowers and mention the Force here and there, but that's about it.
Do they feel like it will turn the casual watchers off to the film?
No shame in that. He brought a tiny force of networked droids to a diplomatic mission expecting to treat with the gungans, wherein they betrayed his trust, knocked off his droids and ambushed him by surrounding him 50 to 1 and stabbing him in a quarterstaff suicide rush. His only fault was being diplomatic.
I bet you're the kind of anon who has a problem with Ewoks beating the stormtroopers on Endor despite having them completely surrounded and outnumbered in a killbox with no cover.
Damn, did anyone manage to download it before he removed it? I'm downloading all of the other tracks he has as we speak, including some TCW ones. He even has Meebur Gascons theme son
I'm just saying, Episode VI would've been a lot better with more scenes of ewok death. Just don't make the stormtroopers look like complete pushovers. Have them laser-roast more care bears before they all die.
He doesn't give them a challenge, that's the problem. They ACT like he's dangerous, but every time he fights he's struggling to hurt anyone, gets cut up, and runs away chuckling like he doesn't realize he got his ass kicked.
The guy is constantly packing 4+ trophy lightsabers. Portraying him as a thug is fine, but he's still supposed to be capable of killing jedi.
TCW, "Witches of the Mist".
It's a brief cameo at the beginning of the episode. I think Boss gets a line or two.
If you want a story that actually feels like Republic Commando, watch the Bad Batch story reels.
I can't lose her. I will stop her from dying.
Did Lucas even write the show, though? And I'm sure there are good ways to show that Grievous is an actual threat with not-too-many actual kills. And isn't there already quite a bit of death in the show?
To be fair, most of the times he's up against characters with serious plot armor. While he didn't kill them, we do see that he was able to defeat and capture Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia.
Yes, they feel like it will turn off the casuals.
There are still large numbers of people who think midi-chlorians are the Force or make the Force (they aren't and they don't and nobody ever said they did).
There are still large numbers of people who think bringing balance to the Force means making the Jedi and the Sith equal in number (it doesn't).
There are still large numbers of people who think the PT portrayal of the Force contradicts the OT portrayal of the Force (it doesn't).
There are still large numbers of people who think you can just draw on the dark side and then put it away and still be fine (you can't).
We are at the start of a whole new line of lowest-common-denominator Star Wars movies that will never entertain a concept more complex or philosophical than "the Force is everywhere".
It's fucking depressing.
