Yeah desu senpai, General Hux is one of my favorite characters in TFA. He's definitely two dimensional but rightfully so.
I also love how he doesn't give a flying fuck about Kylo Ren. Ren almost looks intimidated by him when he had his helmet off.
Tarkin is the best of those two. I'm very interested to see how his presence is captured in Rouge One.
this guy knows whats up,
Veers is the best imperial commander by far:
competent, curbstomps rebels even with heavy main character interference, leads from the front, doesn't die,...
>comparing greyshirts instead of basking in alpha Thrawn's glory
i love the smug look on his face as he's gunning down the pathetic rebel ground forces on his way to the generator
>only commander who reversed the civil war >only commander who consistently defeated New Republic forces
Coming through. All others in this thread better salute as he outranks everyone, even Tarkin.
What was Grievous' tactical military experience? How many battles has he led?
New Disney/Marvel EU isn't complete rubbish it seems
You may remember "General Tagge" here from the Death Star boardroom meeting scene, where he is the only one who takes the rebel threat seriously. He also pointedly mentions that if the rebels do indeed have the Death Star plans, they're basically fucked. So in the comics he's sent to investigate Leia's BS claims about a base on Dantooine, which means he wasn't one of the poor souls that went down with Death Star I.
Sheev recognizes and rewards his shrewdness, and makes him the de facto head of the imperial military. He even outranks and orders Vader on several missions. So far he's still alive in the Vader comics which are between IV & V right now
I liked captain needa a lot. A lesser man would have blamed his underlings or lied. Vader shouldn't have killed him, definitely a black mark on his career--most of his other murders were relatively justifiable.
Yeah, General Hux was great. I hope we see much more of him in the next move, I want the main evil dude to put his trust in a ruthless, zealous military dictator instead of an edgy kid. It was great how he blew Kylo Ren right the fuck out and intimidated him.
Daily reminder that Pellaeon is the most loyal servant of the Empire. He was the only one who was willing to surrender to save the Empire instead of letting it be destroyed.
Shame they deleted some of his scenes. They were pretty good.
>Wanting a hippie woman incharge
Typical rebel scum
It's a shame in general that the Empire went from being manned by morally grey soldiers to comic book dog kicking nazi parodies. Originally they were more like the British Empire under an evil leader.
Apparently he's playing Galen Marek, an Oppenheimer-like scientist responsible for the deathstar project that feels remorse and betrays the empire with the help of his daughter (the girl in the pic)
>not having Mads play a young and intimidating Tarkin
what the fuck and now all we get is "muh daughter"... please tell me the film will at least be like a slasher movie with Vader as the killer who takes them all out by the end
Reminder that Empire plebs got literally btfo not once but TWICE by the far outnumbered and outgunned Rebel forces.
I take the pretty hippie woman any day before one of the old clowns running your impotent bloated military.
Oh no I used a cuss word I must be shaking with rage right now
Carry on parroting some dumb fan theory that gets shot down with the first trailer/casting synopsis, just like with every other movie
If you want to see Yularen in his younger days, watch The Clone Wars. He's frequently the commander of the Star Destroyer forces Anakin's 501st Battalion is working from.
You have no idea what character is and you're probably either underage or american to think that screaming your head off and losing control of your emotions gives a stronger presence of authority than someone who is calculated and brooding.
>Bro... Knowing wookiepedia
so now that the EU is noncanon, what are they doing with all the shit that doesn't exist any longer, splitting it off into a second pedia or recoloring its pages or what
>The CGI show is for actual children.
and the movies, homages to 1930s serials, aren't?
>Do you want to spend thirty minutes reading about a young Tarkin killing space baboons?
This is a problem?
No one had any idea who she was the first time they saw ROTJ, no one cares about her, and her disarmament policies lead to the New Republic being buttfucked by the First Order. She's a pleb, the Empire has the patrician's leaders.
There was probably a lot of dudes like that on the Death Star that were vaporized.
>This is a problem?
It's pretty boring. The book is mostly alright but all the stuff that takes place in the past that's suppose to show how Tarkin became the person he is, is rather bland.
clearly, 12 cents for 64 pages in the silver age would have been economically unfeasible as this is at least double the page count for the same price as a normal comic book holy shit you are genuinely autistic for reading this far it's a tf2 tie-in leave your hugbox long enough to recognize a cultural reference that's not baneposting your mother and i are so disappointed in you not like your older brother who has a job and a girlfriend
>yeah man you know how crazy the kids are for those 1930s serials man
if they reran those fuckers before movies instead of the 30 commercials for your local chiropractor, diet coke, shitty trivia questions and PSAs about texting the public would eat it the fuck up and tumblr would be shipping the male leads like nobody's business.
Not even joking.
And puff and blow your planet down
Please fucking tell me this is true
Is he still kicking around with the first order? Or is this another Era entirely now
>looks worse than cosplay
I think it looks good. Convincing enough for what little screen time he had and no dialogue.
I read somewhere that they were planning on remaking Tarkin with CGI in Rouge One. Apparently the animators were having a tough time capturing his whole body as in A New Hope, all of Cushings shots were from the waste up. Cause his boots didn't fit and he had to wear slippers the whole time.
So I assume now they have to go back to all his Van Helsing shit to study his movements.
They should really just cast someone who can pull him off ala Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan.
>They should really just cast someone who can pull him off ala Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan.
if only there were a likeness good enough to laser scan
EU made him an actual rebel sympathizer.
Unnecessary in my opinion. He just seemed like an officer with a normal set of morals.
Even as a kid I felt that his death was a signal that the Empire had just gotten a little bit more evil. A microcosm of how it had become so oppressive as a whole.
Really? As a kid you thought his death was a symbolic microcosm? Did you also go around class telling others you knew the words 'defenestrate' and 'umami?' Do you now start most sentences with 'to be fair?' Have an upvote good sir! xD
Cushing had a normal if somewhat angular face until his mid thirties when it looked like he decided eating was a hobby rather than a form of sustenance, leading to the sunken cheeks. This is relatively important to modeling him younger.
He had a number of unsuccessful years as an actor before the 1950s, so I wouldn't rule out impoverishment as an influence.
>destroy the Empire thanks to luck and teddy bears
>sacrifice Bothans by the ship load and only give them credit by briefly mentioning them
>establish New Republic that is just as abusive and colonial as the Old Republic
>disarm only a few years after winning a war, prior to establishing a firm political grip, and in a giant galaxy that is easy to hide and build planet-weapons
Don't elect liberals to run YOUR galaxy, America!
This Motherfucker here
When the emperor commands him to blow up the moon of Endor if the Rebels take control... he realizes that there are several battalions of their own men down there.
You can sense the conflict. Down there are good soldiers, good officers, all under his command. Not only is he conflicted at the loss and waste of firing on their own men, he likely knows many of the officers leading those battalions personally, perhaps some are even friends.
But he's a loyal officer and so even though he is personally conflicted at the order coming from the Emperor, he respects the chain of command and is fully prepared to carry out the Emperor's orders.
Why this shit got cut I'll never understand.
Do you guys think that Disney will try to add more officers like the old imperial ones? They had so much fucking character packed into supporting roles, they were the reason people wanted to dress up like stormtroopers!
Like, phasma wasn't even a badass.
I liked hux a lot, but even in ANH you meet an entire council of moffs
I didn't think snoke was scary at all. They showed him too much too soon for him to be scary.
A villain who pulls the strings from the shadows is only scary or effective if he remains in said shadows.
For that reason I hope Snoke is a Red Herring.
