The guy complaining about red feet made it clearly he's perfectly okay with things he finds sexy. Feet is bad, but a pair of huge tits is totally fine. He's a hypocrite of the highest order and no he is not right.
That's why I hate saying it. He was a dumbass, but his one singular point about bad precedents was right.
The whole "feet are gross, boobs are normal" shit was retarded beyond belief thing.
That said, I don't really get the whole foot fetish thing. But that's okay.
Not really, since his concern was more fetishes he doesn't like being posted.
Honestly, it's not a big deal. The OP never determines the course of the thread and if you don't like it, just ignore it. Who cares? It doesn't really matter in the slightest.
Oh yeah, I was just thinking about my army guys. I really need to find some gaming club in my neck of the woods...
Also, anyone else have one of these?
Spaceballs is of course the premiere
Robot Chicken are hit and miss
Only the first Family Guy one is even sort of funny
This here is my personal favorite though:
Seriously, what a goldmine of reaction images and gifs just waiting to happen. Amazing lyrics too.
They were bloody awesome, basically they were tiny vehicles which came with some fantastic playsets. They did licensed stuff like Star Wars and Star Trek and even Terminator.
I loved Action Fleet so much
It's a shame it died after Hasbro bought Galoob and then tried to keep Action Fleet going but completely failed to understand the appeal and then cancelled it because "if our bad attempt at it isn't selling it must be the concept that doesn't work!"
Most of all her being "the Emperor's right hand". That was Vader's position and I perceived that as an unnecessary retcon to give her a reason to despise Luke while also establishing her as some kind of a special snowflake. I have nothing against revenge (sub)plots or "tragic" characters, but I didn't find her reasons and her backstory convincing at all. I also didn't like that no one told her off for her hostile behaviour.
Basically they sold them as models. They'd come with stands but no figures, which defeated the purpose. Some of the ones Hasbro produced still had opening cockpits but it was bizarre that they kept the feature but never included any pilots or soldiers along with them.
They also made a Solar Sailer that had zero interactivity options and it sold horribly. Hasbro didn't get that not including any figures defeated the concept and rather than learn from their mistake, they decided that people just don't want Action Fleet and axed the line.
Hasbro makes this mistake very often.
They also like making bizarre sub-lines that appeal to no one, which they cancel after one year but won't ever admit that they sold poorly or even explain why they're being discontinued because that would force them to acknowledge that they sold poorly.
Fighter Pods, Angry Birds and Command are the most recent ones.
You can at least say that Fighter Pods finished with a pretty expansive range of characters. Not my thing but they were sort of cute and if you decided to collect them you could probably build a decent collection.
Also those admittedly nifty X-Struct kits or whatever they were called. They had figures and you built ramshod looking vehicles out of a shared pool of parts. I think I saw those in a store one time.
>Also those admittedly nifty X-Struct kits or whatever they were called. They had figures and you built ramshod looking vehicles out of a shared pool of parts. I think I saw those in a store one time.
Those actually never made it to stores. Hasbro cancelled that without explanation.
>Also those admittedly nifty X-Struct kits or whatever they were called. They had figures and you built ramshod looking vehicles out of a shared pool of parts. I think I saw those in a store one time.
Those erector-like things got cancelled. You probably saw Mash-Ups and thought that was it, since they're basically the same concept just with figures instead of ships.
No you shouldn't hate to say it, once your general is known as a general that has fetishes in it, whether they're right or wrong, you get the stigma of a bad one that has nothing but footfags, or whatever, in it.
That scares away some people that just want to have normal conversations and brings in those that would rather just bring nothing new to a thread and just make it a fetish general.
>ITT If your thread looks like trash, you're gonna attract trash.
Do we ever get anymore info on Motti?
>Hasbro makes this mistake very often.
Will they ever learn? Why are they so terrible now?
Must have been something else then. I remember regretting it later because I was in a hurry and I never saw or heard of them again.
Hopefully the new micro machines are selling well. I like them but boy do they need the hot water trick frequently.
Finn handles a lightsaber well
for a person who isn't force sensitive.
Just finished Rebels season 1, thought it was great. I wasn't sure about space Aladdin at first but he's grown on me. Chopper is a little shit, I love him. Vader and Ahsoka appearing in the last episode was awesome. What can I expect from season 2? No spoilers please.
season 2 has been split so far.
the visual quality has improved immensely, but the story has been really inconsistent.
Some episodes are amazing, while others are downright terrible and cliche. The biggest problem is how self contained every episode is.
For anyone curious about the development of the Jedi uniform:
As you can see, Obi-Wan was at one point to wear a sort of Tatooine disguise early before Lucas decided he would wear the Jedi robe throughout the film.
The OT feel of some of it, especially the empire stuff.
The camaraderie of the crew.
Chopper and Zeb.
Kanan's relationship with Aladdin and his own doubts as a teacher.
Space fights looked good.
I liked how lightsaber a weren't overly used.
Things I didn't like:
Not a huge amount of backstory for the
Series felt really short (15 eps?)
Kallus looked like he might be a threat at first but turned out to be a jobber.
Not a lot of backstory for the Inquisitor.
I wanted to see more Jedi training and More of Aladdin learning about the force.
>Not a huge amount of backstory for the main characters.
S2 is having and will continue to have some minor backstory episodes for the main crew.
>Series felt really short (15 eps?)
S2 will have more episodes; the traditional low-20s number.
>Kallus looked like he might be a threat at first but turned out to be a jobber.
This hasn't changed
>Not a lot of backstory for the Inquisitor.
He's supposedly going to be fleshed out this season a bit.
>I wanted to see more Jedi training and more of Aladdin learning about the force.
Not sure if this was promised for this season, but I would assume it'll happen.
Second Season is longer, it now will have over 20 episodes, maybe more.
> I wanted to see more Jedi training and More of Aladdin learning about the force.
It's touched up upon bit more in Season 2
>Kallus looked like he might be a threat at first but turned out to be a jobber.
Then you're really not going to like him now.
Going by what you like, you might enjoy Season 2. But
So I finally watched the episodes of TCW where Palpatine gets control of the banks since I skipped them the first time I watched the show. After this I just need to read Dark Disciple and I'll have watched/read everything from the Clone Wars era. I like how when you look at where those episodes take place they're around the end of the war so you could tell the Confederates were running out of money in the months afterwards until they went full 'fuck it' mode and attacked Coruscant in Episode 3. I'm not sure if that's what their intentions are but either way that's pretty cool.
It also got me thinking. I know in the EU the reason why everything was shit technology wise during the Imperial era was because everyone was poor, but I think they're doing something similar with the new canon. For example what the banking clan was doing (taking all the money and giving it to a select few) might have been foreshadowing to Palpatine taking tons of money for himself. Then in the Lando comics we know he did take an interest in Sith artifacts that were probably expensive as fuck so it's likely that he used tons of money from the banks for himself, and tons of it for the Death Stars. It could also be the reason why they had to enslave races too since they didn't have the money to pay workers. Also I imagine the public was fine with this because they felt as if they didn't need an amazing army now that the Clone Wars were over and simply didn't care that technology wasn't as great as it used to be. However the Rebellion getting as huge as it did probably ended up leading more and more people to be concerned over the Empire not having enough money for it's forces leading them (specifically politicians and companies who don't think with freedom or their hearts in mind) to eventually join the Rebellion (specifically during Episode 4 where they not only wasted tons of Imperial money, but arguably officially kickstarted the Galactic Civil War).
It probably helps that he doesn't seem to be doing any of the super advanced twirls and shit, just basic swings, like Luke. Also it seems that they must train storm troopers to use melee weapons in the First Order.

Is "Force Sensitive" even part of canon now?
If we go by the movies (not even talking midichlorians), there is no greater difference between someone like Luke, and someone like Han, than someone who has a gifted body for martial arts/"gets" math, and someone who doesn't.
I don't think there's anymore canon sources remaining that would claim that you either can or can't use the force. It's just how easy it is. You know, "The Force Is Strong With This One", instead of "The Force is With This One".
Watch the Jar-Jar/Mace TCW episodes. Everyone has a little bit of Force inside them, some more than others. But there is a base-level you need to be able to actually use the force.
>If we go by the movies (not even talking midichlorians), there is no greater difference between someone like Luke, and someone like Han, than someone who has a gifted body for martial arts/"gets" math, and someone who doesn't.
I don't see the difference. How is being able to use the Force different than being naturally stronger than somebody else?
It's not that unlikely that some alien species just don't have the prerequisites to be force sensitive or use the force, like a penguin is unable to fly. Doesn't invalidate his existence though. Penguins can do other cool stuff.
Well, what I mean is, is that if you go by what Yoda explains in Empire, then the Force is very much in use by everyone. It is part of living.
Infact, "Luck" doesn't exist, yet Han Solo is a scoundrel. Someone who effectively dances on the knife's edge, and claims he's lucky.
Even if not in a controlled, disciplined way, wouldn't that imply Han is "using the Force"? He's in tune with who he is, and with his surroundings. He's always on his feet. Isn't that part of what Yoda explains to be the Force? Sure, he lacks the discipline of mind, to have greater control over the force, and anything he has is very small and instinctual, but it's there.
That's kind of how I see Yoda's explanation. It takes a Jedi to master the Force, but everyone has it, and uses it to some degree, because they wouldn't even be alive otherwise.
>Isn't that part of what Yoda explains to be the Force?
Not really, no.
He gives a speech saying we are living in an animistic world and there is more to it that you can see with your bare eyes or something along those lines.
If you think of the Force, like it is explained as 'life force' it is inherently inside of every living thing 'permeated' by it as he put it. Doesn't mean everybody has the power to influence their life force.
Kind of like how some monks are able to channel their chi. That stuff is empirically measurable. But nobody know what the hell is actually going on.
Also there's a quite huge difference between being able to peek behind realities curtain enough to be able to lift a x-wing from a swamp and having what looks like sheer dumb luck from time to time.
i found it! i finally found it! scans of the latest Rebels UK Magazine comic, almost a month late! now if only someone can get Inbrief online, we'll be all caught up!
i bring you, Aresko and Grint's (probably) last story
>the Emperor's right hand
No. Stop. There. You have no idea of what you are talking about.
She was not the Emperor's Right Hand.
She was his Hand amongst many basically one of many force users he sent to do wet work that Vader would consider too demeaning. Essentially a corps of low tier mauls and ventresses. So she was neither special nor unique. Just the only one of a few who didn't go crazy or sith or insane.
Well the original name for the Force was the Will. It's will personified, the spiritual or mental aspect, and when combined with the physical aspect of everything being part of the same whole, evolved into the general idea of the Force. I think that in his youth George assumed everyone could use the Force because he believed that achieving greatness is only a matter of learning, and that anyone can rise to the occasion. But as he got older I think he probably decided that, no, when you step back and look at life in literary terms only some people ever exert the will to do great things, and those people generally don't live ordinary lives. So when you bring destiny into the equation it doesn't matter whether everyone can if not everyone does, either you do or you don't. Therefore you might as well say that anyone who can use the Force was destined too, and was thus born with the innate ability to do so. The choice now comes from how an individual chooses the path to their destiny rather than whether or not they choose to rise to the occasion, and thus in a way doesn't invalidate characters like Han Solo or Tarkin that are "heroic" to a point without being Force-sensitive. This would also appear to be why Force-sensitives are generally central to galactic affairs.
So George probably decided that since the Force is also a metaphor for life and existence and interconnectedness and all that daoism stuff that everyone has a bit of the Force, which is measured by midichlorians. But only people born with high amounts of midichlorians are able to use the Force (or exert the Will) to do great things, hence why Force users are generally central to galactic affairs.
It's not hard to see his line of thinking, though there is still an argument to be made for whether it diminishes some of the mystique. Still this is part of the reason I don't hate the prequels. Say what you will about them as films but from a storytelling perspective they provide a lot to chew on.
And yes, Journal of the Whills=Journal of the Wills. Interpret that as you will.
I'm pretty sure they're trying to rip off Haro
BB-8? Yeah, it's an odd design, doesn't seem that mobile in interiors.
And they ruined some guy's life because he wanted their job. Nice.
Of course, even when they win they lose. Fuck me. RIP in Pieces you two.
Thanks anon, it was good to see them act like the backstabbing Imperials they were hyped to be.
I really hope the Journal and the Whills themselves actually gets addressed in the new canon sometime.
Of course unless proven otherwise, I figured that the Force Priestesses were a Whill in life.
No, if it were bait, I would have called it a tumbler swj robot for underaged autist, or some other meme bullshit insult that would only illicit eye rolling from anyone will a brain.
I just don't think it is a very good droid design. You can disagree, and I will not think less of you... except that maybe you have odd taste in droids. Seriously, it's just seems like it was weird for the sake of being weird.
>I love how giddy Aresko and Grint look in that last panel.
They betrayed the guy that nearly took their jobs, and probably sent him to a spice mine somewhere. I'd be all smiles too if I did that.
>How come Darth Ruin the New Sith were barely covered in the EU?
Because prior to ROTS everyone thought they were just a flash in the pan that died in the backstory for Dark Forces Valley of the Jedi. It wasn't until ROTS that Lucas revealed they had actually ruled the Galaxy for 1000 years.
...Damn seeing a competent and scheming Aresko is kinda hot.
>And they ruined some guy's life because he wanted their job. Nice.
To be fair, they implied foulplay on his part too since his record was clean despite him also having been there back when some of this shit happened.
I don't know why but I really like the look of this logo
Then he would have been even more loved on /swg/, if possible.
Damn you Filoni, why did you kill him?
Stormtroopers know he's dangerous to be around, but damn he's just so damn cool. Everyone wants to be on Vader's strike team.
Eh, I'll be disappointed in it if he does. I'm of the grognard opinion that overblown action sequences and heroically epic stakes killed the quaint adventurousness established by the OT. I was so happy when TCW toned down the scale that Genndywars had, but now I'm worried nucanon's moving back in that direction.
Seriously? I'm not even a typography nazi that believes that everything aside from Helvetica is tasteless and that kerning is an artform, but that logo just does not look good, by any standard.
>Luke in Shattered Empire
Yeah. I was a big fan of Shattered Empire Luke. Really hoping he is just as good in the new movies because honestly Luke is the only OT character I am exited to see.
>look in Target aisle which is empty as always. Just a few Poes and Zuvios.

> I wonder where she got to chance to learn how to pilot?
Well you know, it runs in the family, daddy and maybe ghost grandad probably taught her

>mfw played Fallout 4 and Battlefront all day today
>It's will personified, the spiritual or mental aspect
Now I've heard that before, and it was just about as good of a ride.
The last two episodes have been pretty disappointing, but everything else has been good and we only have evidence that it's going to get much, much better.
The comics is connected to the Servants of the Empire books series, in which Zare is training as a Cadet for the sole purpose of finding out what happened to his sister, who was also training at the academy and "went missing".
No need to be buttmad. Anon was expressing his pleasure in the fact that all canon material is connected and benefits off each other, something the EU could never do. If this upsets you, then you are quite literally a butthurt EUfag.
I love this too. Finally, we are about to see some visual representation of Vaders true power. We never got that at all in the OT because we only see him fight his own son. Lords of the Sith showcased his strength in the force in a quite intimidating manner. I look forward to seeing him slaughter these Rebels just like he did the Twi'leks in that book.
This has me very interested. Assuming that there is a good explanation that is.
Wow... I can't believe it but... Boyega is actually looking like a damn fantastic actor, and Daisy... Is not.
I thought for sure it was going to be the other way around when we were first introduced to them.
>Anon was expressing his pleasure in the fact that all canon material is connected and benefits off each other, something the EU could never do.
Are you honestly suggesting that the EU never had books and comics that were connected?
Why can't the people who post here ever know what they're talking about before they post? They wouldn't look like idiots nearly as much, but I guess they don't care. People like you insist on being insufferable and it hurts the thread more than any foot picture could.
>Boyega is actually looking like a damn fantastic actor, and Daisy... Is not.
Boyega has been in things before and proven himself. It is honestly a shame his getting cast was in large part influenced by his race (and thus cheapening his accomplishment).
But get reading for Hayden 2.0 with Daisy.
Boy, the EU contradicted itself all the time. This little comic ties into a TV show and Novel series flawlessly.
There were continuity errors even in ongoing series like Legacy of the Force.
>It is honestly a shame his getting cast was in large part influenced by his race
>Will any Asian characters join the cast, a fan asks. Abrams: “There are Asians in this film. The truth is we didn’t write the character of Finn to be any color, we didn’t write Rey to be any color.” They just went for the right actors.
>Are you honestly suggesting that the EU never had books and comics that were connected?
Of course this happened, I am not an idiot. It was in a much more amateur fashion however, and left a lot of continuity errors which plagued the EU.
>Why can't the people who post here ever know what they're talking about before they post?
I do, I read the EU. I was quite fond of some of it.
>They wouldn't look like idiots nearly as much, but I guess they don't care. People like you insist on being insufferable and it hurts the thread more than any foot picture could.
I'm not being an idiot. It's a damn fact that Canon in 1 year has built a convincingly connected world with no continuity problems, whereas the EU failed massively in that.
Just because the EU had some connections and references to other EU works, doesn't prove me or other anons wrong. The LSG has been constructing canon in a much more consistent way. Denying this is absurd.
No, fuck /tv/, just initial impressions seemed to be in her favor.
I've seen Attack the Block. I didn't think it was that good and I didn't think Boyega was exactly amazing.
>Boy, the EU contradicted itself all the time.
So? It also tied together all the time.
>This little comic ties into a TV show and Novel series flawlessly.
So? You say that like it's an accomplishment. It's not, especially since that sort of thing is...common. In any sort of shared universe franchise. Marvel does it, DC does it, Hellboy does it, Star Wars did it....it's not special. You need to congratulate yourself everytime you notice something like that and pity people who read books that you didn't?
That's pretty gosh darn annoying. And it shits up the thread. Pls refrain from making shitposts in the thread from now on, okay? Thank you.
He's lying you twat. Star Wars is a family story, Rey is clearly of Skywalker descent. LUCAS even said this.
>actually believing JJ when he said "we didn't think about race guise, we swear"
Come the fuck on, this is the guy who has previously on other projects stated he was intentionally looking for people of color.
That being said (and this is partly directed at >>77657565) I don't think Finn is a bad casting, and I don't think Boyega, or anybody, should feel like his achievement should be cheapened, whether he was casted on his race or not..
Which canon novel should I
listen tonext? Already read Tarkin, Lost Stars, Heir to the Jedi, and Weapon of a Jedi.
>It's a damn fact that Canon in 1 year has built a convincingly connected world with no continuity problems
Okay. Now lets see them build a story that's actually great. They've failed massively at that. Nothing has been better than mediocre.
It's a science fiction franchise anon, canon is important to people. Why do you think the LSG exists? They're literally being paid to keep canon in check.
It's clearly important to people. If its not to you, no big deal. But don't call it dumb, it's clearly something that a lot of people care about. Canon being maintained in the way it is affects the future of the franchise.
For example, say your favorite character is Ventress. It doesn't matter if you don't care about canon, it still affects you because
she died in a book and will never return.
So yeah, when Canon is affecting the franchise in a such a way, people care. People want to stay in the loop.
Nufan to the franchise here, seeing Hera say that Kanan told her Mustafar is where Jedi go to die and then reading in Lords of the Sith that Mustafar is where Jedi are interrogated and executed pleases me.
Ain't feeling bad for Lucas. I'm feeling bad for us.
His ideas were probably better than what we are going to get because he has a good understanding over over all scale and story flow. Much more than Disney corporate executives and JJ "tow the line" Abrams.
>Chose to sell the franchise to a different company
>Expecting them to want his help after the last three were complete messes
He literally brought it on himself
>tfw he described his script as being a family drama
George is a hack
>I am not an idiot.
Then don't act like it. Think before you post.
>I do, I read the EU. I was quite fond of some of it.
Again, act like it. Conduct yourself with a little dignity.
>I'm not being an idiot.
You are. You're so easily impressed by noticing a connection between a book and a comic in a shared universe that you have to make a backhanded comment about the EU, even though that's shit they've been doing for years?
You pretty much are an idiot if you're so easily taken aback by something like that. You're acting like a fucking toddler.
Lords of the Sith
Opinion. I'm enjoying the books, comics, and Rebels, I have no major complaints thus far.
Nobody is saying that, and calling me a bandwagoner is akin to saying "n-not a true fan!". Go fuck yourself.
They said they're using a very vague outline of his ideas. A lot of stuff has probably changed sure but the characters and ideas are still from Lucas.
It is a shame, I wouldn't have minded him loosely working on the new movies, like he did for TCW.
Why are you even here? Does Rebels not count as tie-in material? What about the comics?
This is also a pretty shitty opinion considering many of us here have been enjoying a lot of the books, so one anon saying "b-b-but they're tie ins so they have to be shit!" isn't going to change anything.
Too bad he's a terrible storyteller. Kasdan co-wrote the script for TFA and knows how to tell a good Star Wars movie on screen. And of course is working from all the ideas Lucas discussed with him over the years.
>Nufan to the franchise here, seeing Hera say that Kanan told her Mustafar is where Jedi go to die and then reading in Lords of the Sith that Mustafar is where Jedi are interrogated and executed pleases me.
That excites you? Do you not read comic books or are you just here for the Steven Universe threads?
I know how you feel. Connections like this works because there's no continuity errors that break the immersion. Whereas the EU had dozens of connections and references, ruined by the hundreds of inconsistencies and bullshit. This is what the EU anon is not understanding.
>They said they're using a very vague outline of his ideas. A lot of stuff has probably changed sure but the characters and ideas are still from Lucas.
Their was an interview with Lucas a few days ago where he was whining about Disney not wanting his scripts and ideas.
Reminder that none of this shit actually counts as real canon because it's not the movies and if you say otherwise, you're deluding yourself. I bet you shits will line up at McDonalds if they put a four word "canon" sentence on every burger wrapper.
The prequels were full of good ideas. TCW too, and they were executed better because of the other writers, and Filoni.
Jesus, what is the point of this post, it just seems like you want this argument to drag on forever
Lucas is a pretty good storyteller. He gets bogged down in the details and that is what fucks him up. Clone Wars turned out just fine.
Kasdan hasn't done anything good since the 80s. And we have no proof that he is working off ideas Lucas talked to him about.
lmao, Lucas came up with some good ideas but they all needed to be filtered by Kasdan the OT gang back in the day.
Lucas even ADOPTED some of Kasdan's ideas for the trilogy (Yoda being an actual Jedi, and able to use a lightsaber, for one).
It's a good thing Kasdan is co-writing the script.
>comes to a star wars thread on a comics and cartoons board
>to say that only the movies matter
literally fuck off to /tv/. If you want to only watch the movies, nobody is stopping you, but dont shit up on communities like this one for no reason. Especially when you dont know shit about what you are talking about.
A lot of the ideas were fucking stupid and still are, and TCW only made them less stupid due to good writing. Maul coming back from the dead is incredibly retarded. It only works thanks to the good story, but the idea is fucking stupid.
Not that anon, but why are you so obsessed with other people enjoying that? Maybe he is new to a franchise with a connected universe, or maybe he is just happy its being done well in Star Wars?
Its not your job to tell him that he shouldn't be impressed or enjoy it.
>Lucas came up with some good ideas but they all needed to be filtered by Kasdan the OT gang back in the day.
No one is debating that. It is the fact that they trashed the /potentially/ good ideas and instead gave creative control to someone who has proven himself to not have any creativity.
Shh, theres a contrarian circlejerk in /swg/ where we're supposed to think George didn't lose all his talent, and that the prequels are underrated gems that dumb fucking normies will never understand.
Damn, weekends are when all the children come out to these threads, I see.
Just don't stay when the new episode airs. We don't need anymore "If you don't like Rebels why are you even here!?" cryposts.
Mid 20's, this is the first multimedia franchise I've gotten into personally I can't get into comics that doesn't make them bad just because I don't like them but I'm enjoying Star Wars.
>We don't need anymore "If you don't like Rebels why are you even here!?" cryposts.
Can you explain how that's wrong though? It's a Rebels thread, is it not?
Do you also go into other threads for shows you dont like?
I get not liking the show, but why would you go that that shows thread just to shit on it, instead of letting its fans enjoy it?
It's more of a case of people coming here who don't even watch Rebels, or barely know anything about it. Thanks to the thread having a reputation for being a general Star Wars discussion thread, we get a lot of people who neither watch the cartoons nor read the comics.
Also you should prepare for the inevitable "JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DISAGREES WITH YOU, DOESNT MEAN THEY'RE FROM TEEVEE YOU PARANOID AUTIST" replies.
I think he means the whole "Kylo wants to be Vader #2" thing
>there are people in this thread RIGHT NOW that aren't for the big
>stop discussing my show!
>unless you only have nice things to say about it!
>you're not allowed to talk about my show in my sekrit club unless you LOVE it!
No, you misunderstand. I mean the concept of a (possible) descendant being Vader 2.0.
I don't think Kylo is Luke at all.
It's never discussion though. If it was, I wouldn't mind, but it's literally just endless shitposting with some anons even admitting they dont even bother watch.
Can you explain how that's fair? Would you like it if a thread for a show you liked was continuously filled with people shitting on it, some people not even bothering to watch it at all?
It's not fun, and its not discussion.
>That wasn't me?
But you support it. You agree with his comment. That it's a feeling "EUfags" can never enjoy because something so fucking basic has never occurred in a comic, book, video game, or television show from the EU. Not in 30+ years of Star Wars.
Nigga ive been more critical than most on the show. But I actually want to discuss it, and not just shitpost about it. You should stop posting until you can see the difference, and then rejoin us when youre ready to contribute something worth reading.
He also shoots down the notion it was a bunch of kids main characters here.
I feel ashamed for doubting Lucas.
>JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE DISAGREES WITH YOU, DOESNT MEAN THEY'RE FROM TEEVEE YOU PARANOID AUTIST
But that is right.
>It's never discussion though.
It is though. Maybe you just don't see it that way because it's not the way you personally want the conversation to go. People discussion the writing, the acting, the animation and what they think about it. Just because they think it's bad doesn't mean it's shitposting.
This has never been said here. EU stuff has always been welcome, and people are free to like it, but deny its flaws and ignoring the pros of Canon is immature, in the same way that pretending nothing good came from the EU is also immature. Both sides have problems, but as the previous anon said, you should be free to enjoy what you want without fear of people attacking you for it.
There's literally a post a few scrolls up with an anon saying they dont care about anything other than the movi-
>No wonder all the actual discussion of Star Wars happens outside these threads.
Funny, when the shitposters fuck off, this is easily the best place for discussion of Star Wars, for all of its media. Shows how much investment you have in this place really.
>Funny, when the shitposters fuck off, this is easily the best place for discussion of Star Wars, for all of its media.
That's not true though. Because the shitposters never fuck off. They've been here since day one. It's the people who think they control thread and the people who disagree with are simply trolls.
There's no greater shitposting than trying to turn this thread into an autistic circlejerk. So much as a comment about some fucked up animation physics in Rebels is enough to get the 'regulars' to cry "GO BACK TO /tv/! WHY ARE YOU EVEN HERE!" I swear, this place is tumblr lite with the circle jerking.
Actually, the only time this thread is any good is when we're talking about Kyle Katarn, Empire At War, or orange buttcheeks.
Any other time, this place fucking sucks. Too many special snowflakes who get butthurt about opinions.
Those theories arise because people misunderstand why Khan was in the second star trek movie: executive meddling. Not because JJ wanted to lie, he literally wasn't supposed to be in the movie.
>Empire At War
Personally loved "Thrawn's Revenge" because of how much it powered up certain ships like the ISD. They should have kept bombers being able to hit through shields though.
Also gone through Republic and War and playing as the Republic can be such a pain. So many droids (especially in Space).
He is like if a Clone Trooper was one of the MCs of the prequels.
It does seem strange though how frightened and scarred he seems all the time seeing as he is a highly trained soldier.
>It does seem strange though how frightened and scarred he seems all the time
He only seems frightened and scared when he knows TIE Fighters are shooting at him on foot. Other times he seems brave (facing off against stormtroopers, facing off against Kylo).
>What's Thrawn's Revenge do?
Essentially retells the old EU. Fighting through each of the leaders of the Imperial Remnant. Hero death is permanent. Capitol ships have been given a big buff. Brings in a bunch of new heroes and factions.
Like the original responder said, Thrawn's Revenge is a huge old EU mod. It also has fully setup campaigns where you can play everything from warring Imperial factions during the Civil War to the Hapans. Pretty fun.
>how dare anyone have fun!
Stay mad buddy. Besides, it's not like there's any other imperials left to root for.
I honestly wanted nothing to do with a Boba Fett movie until I saw this
>tfw I like the ending of ROTJ with the galaxy wide celebration more than the one with the Ewok song
>but I fucking hate the CGI song in Jabba's palace
Does anyone else know this feeling?
Am I the only person who can't unhear "Butthole? Slimy? My hole this is!" instead of "Mud hole? Slimy? My home this is!" in this scene?
It seems a lot of people do. I don't blame people for not being into Yub Nub, but it's not enough for me to like the song it got replaced with. It sounds equally out of place and tacky.
I'd say he dies in the finale of season 2...they need someone to die in the last ep.
>they need someone to die in the last ep.
You mean besides pic related?
If Boba leaves the Sarlacc, I'd rather they do something more interesting with him besides "the best bounty hunter in the galaxy is back for more action!" which is what the EU did. He came back but nothing really changes, he was still the same old Boba Fett and his trip to the Sarlacc barely changed anything. I'd rather they only bring him back if they have a really good idea for a story that could only be told post-Sarlacc. If it's just Boba Fett being a badass bounty hunter you could easily tell a story like that pre-Sarlacc.
Speaking about the season final Freddie talked little about it recently.
>And by the end of season 2 you're going to know 100% without a shadow of doubt that they're in a very loving trusting relationship, and I don't want to go too into it because it's one of the most beautiful things I've ever read, when I read the last two episodes of season 2 but I will tell you it's one of the most beautiful things that I ever read and I've read a lot of scripts in 20 years so people definitely have a lot to look forward to as far as the sort of growth and the horrible speed bumps that exist in any relationship.
>he was still the same old Boba Fett and his trip to the Sarlacc barely changed anything.
The fuck are you on about? He learned about selflessness and friendship from fucking Dengar, bro. Boba became a better person, while still staying a badass.
How is Jango better? His "character" is a dodgy, teamkilling asshole who lies through his scenes and dies in the arena like a fool. All we have is the cunning he displayed in the Geonosis ring. Boba was pure pottery, a loser except for hiding in the garbage to track the Falcon. In the end, it all comes down to which armor design you prefer.
Booty blasted Alderaanian scum detected.
Boba's armor looks like shit to be honest. It's worn second hand garbage with a puke color scheme, literally all other Mandalorian armor we have seen looks better.
People just like his design because it was the first one we saw.
Which wasn't even consistent. Sometimes Dengar was his friend, sometimes he was still on the usual "bounty hunters don't have friends" thing. Whenever he needed a sidekick they'd usually default to Dengar but by and large he was back to being the same loner he was before. It wasn't even until the later eras that he started getting more involved with the Mandalorians, which was the only significant change to his character in the post-ROTJ EU.
I still love Boba's design over Jango's.
Kallus has 1 especially dumb line I think saying "no" to the orbital bombardment without any reason given. That being said, he's not bad at his job, just outmatched. Also reminder that offscreen he must be a badass because he was promoted between season 1 and 2.
I changed my Gamertag to something Star Wars related, and bought a Rebel Pilot avatar costume in the run up to Battlefront, excited for the Star Wars community to finally have a game to play together.
>everyone has generic gamertags like ASS4SINXxX090 and DAxC0DxMASTA and most people have defaul profile pictures
I've only seen one dude with a Clone Trooper, one dude with Vader, and no Star Wars gamertags
Thrawn is not a very compelling villain even in the EU. There was nothing personal at stake with the heroes. He just had a lame gimmick of being able to make develop counter strategies based on artwork. And based on his characterization... he really wasn't even fighting for anything.
Just as planned.
I've got your source:
>Frederick Lloyd says he has contributed music to the latter half of the trailer, namely the “Force Theme,” while John Samuel Hanson of Confidential Music worked on the first half of the trailer music.
Also the orchestration and instrumentation sound nothing like Williams in the first place.
Hmm. I'll give it a look and abandon ship if its full of autists.
I'm not a prequel fanatic by any means, but I can understand their defensiveness considering they're getting alienated pretty hard right now.
Nope cant do it. Not only was I instantly presented with autists, the forum layout is fucking godawful and intimidating to navigate. I wouldn't even know where to start.
I guess I'm stuck with this place.
Sarco Plank's GCW Era' design is leagues better than the TFA one.
To compare; TFA >>77656703
And Pic Related, from "Weapon of a Jedi"
Hmm.... Finn seems like a very convincing actor. But Rey is ridiculously calm for this situation. I don't like it, the chliche stronk independant women is so overdone in sci fi.
Also holy shit Boyega is going to be up there with Ewan, Ford, Lee, and the other GOAT actors when this trilogy is done. Not sure I can say the same for Daisy though...
That being said, it's a 16 second clip, too early to judge.
Both songs are shit to be honest, I feel like the replacement song in Jabba's Palace is unreasonably hated. At least any more so than the original should be. Lapti Nek wasn't any more fitting for Jabba's Palace than Jedi Rocks.
As for the CGI, I don't care. The Original Sy Snootles puppet was fugly, so the CGI was an improvement there. As for the rockstar cockroach, he was crappy, but at the same time, they filmed more scenes with Oola, which I loved.
So yeah, I don't care about that change. For every "bad" change, there was something I liked, and the Victory Celebration music at the end makes it 110% worth it
>Finn: We can't outrun them!
>Rey: We might, in that quadjumper!
>Finn: Huh? We need a pilot!
>Rey: We've got one.
This dialogue really feels Star Warsy! Reminds me of the scene where Luke and Ben meet Han for the first time in ANH.
>Luke: Ten thousand!? We could almost buy our own ship for that!
>Han: But who's gonna fly it, kid? You?
Yeah, that's actually some really good dialogue, not going to lie. I feel like Rey's delivery on her lines is kinda off though...
On the plus side, Finn bumped it up to 11/10, I'm really excited for more of him from this one clip.
I agree, but I have to defend her a bit though. Mark and Hayden weren't that good in their first movie either. But I think both of them improved in their next Star Wars movie(s). It's hard to notice Hayden's improvement in ROTS because his dialogue was still just as awful as it was in AOTC. Hamill's acting was really good in Empire which is part of the reason why we could take a muppet like Yoda seriously.
>I have to defend her a bit though. Mark and Hayden weren't that good in their first movie either.
100% true. They were both pretty average in their first movies (Hayden arguably below average in some scenes, he came across too whiny, but that may have been an intentional choice on Lucas's part)
But they both stepped it up. Hamill's performances (especially in RotJ) were great, and Hayden was very good in RotS too.
>It's hard to notice Hayden's improvement in ROTS because his dialogue was still just as awful as it was in AOTC
I disagree here though. Hayden is LEAGUES better in III, and the writing was much better too. In AotC there was dozens of cringeworthy lines. In RotS, his lines were solid. Sometimes silly, but no sillier than some of the dialogue in the OT. The only really cringey lines in RotS (at least in my opinion) were from Padme.
>Y-You're breaking my heart!
>So love has blinded you :0
Plus all of those scenes (and there was quite a lot of them) where Anakin doesn't say anything, Hayden really is quite chilling.
And when he is working alongside Ewan and Ian, he also shines. (They're better actors for sure, I feel like he raised his game enough for his character to have enough presence on screen with them, something that was really weak in AotC. Notice how in AotC, people only cared about Obi-Wan's side of the events? I believe it was partly because Anakin just didn't have any presence. He was just an awkward pretty boy. During the Coruscant chase, can you really say you gave a shit about Anakin? I personally kept wanting it to cut back to Obi-Wan.)
So, do Yuzzums still come from Endor in the new canon? Also, why did they have more contact with the wider galaxy than the other Endor species?
>Retards still think Snoke is 25 feet tall
Protip:Booming orators on podiums have been kongolized for decades now. Super secret! Only read if you're ready!
They weren't 25 feet tall. Shocking, I know!
Can you at least tell me why, anon?
>Also holy shit Boyega is going to be up there with Ewan, Ford, Lee, and the other GOAT actors when this trilogy is done.
Boyega is obviously very talented and I think it helps that he really loves Star Wars. You can feel how passionate both Boyega and Ridley are because of that.
But the actor I'm most excited to see is Adam Driver. I already have a very good feeling about his performance as insane dark side fanatic.
reminder that this comes out tomorrow! anyone going to upload it?
Ok. I am finally done updating this stuff.
First post, the Main Canon Guide.
+Moved "Vader Down" into the comics section
+Minor Layout fixes and improvements
+Added an image to "Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away"
Also yes, I have finally finished the Timeline. Sort of. I'll explain next post.
one thing to fix here. having read Twilight Company, Tatooine is not in the story at all. Hoth and Sullust are the two big battles in it. and Battlefront is out now, so it should be moved from the "Upcoming"category
Ah, but he didn't.
You see that was just a generic tissue in a droid body with a simulated personality to deceive the Republic into thinking he was dead.
Grievous still lives and helps his people from the shadows.
according to the leaked synopsis
there should be something like that on the giant freighter that finn and rey get captured on after they escape jakku, because the "cargo" that han and the guavians are fighting over are creatures
And this is the Timeline. As you can see, as requested, I've bullet pointed any significant events from each Canon material, and added where each Short Story takes place. (Also added the source for each Short Story for convenience)
Now this wasn't an easy task. I did it all myself, so it's pretty obvious that I am probably missing quite a few significant events that I could add. If you wanna' help me out and tell me stuff I have missed, go ahead. I am sure I've missed out important stuff from TCW.
I also haven't finished "Moving Target", "Twilight Company", or the TCW Story Reels yet, so forgive me for them not having any real information there.
Feedback is appreciated. This is the first PROPER version of this timeline, so it's very basic, but perhaps in time this can grow into something very useful. Anons told me they wanted an image like this for reference to look back on important plot points, particularly from the books and comics.
I have also updated the OP link to contain both of the new images.
Oh dang, I knew I forgot something. And yeah, I just assumed the book would have something about the Battle of Tatooine because almost all the damn game maps are on that Planet. My bad, I'll fix that. Thank!
Grievous's only failing as a character design is that he was TOO badass. If he had lived through the prequels, there would have been no good excuse for why he didn't show up later in the timeline.
>Literally nothing in the spoilers indicates that he isn't.
Other than that he worked for people that ACTIVELY SOUGHT THEM OUT
You know, other that PROVING IT...no, nothing
But if it makes you feel any better they might go back to what Lucas said in the beginning, ANYONE can use the Force if they train.
>If he had lived through the prequels, there would have been no good excuse for why he didn't show up later in the timeline.
There's 100% good reason, to help his people. That's the whole reason he was in the war to begin with. If he feels he has to stay on his homeworld to accomplish that he would, war is over and I think we all know in the end his people got screwed over by the Empire for sure, he's probably wary of ever getting involved in another.
Jedi Finn is stillborn it seems. Maybe we'll get him being trained though, even Clone Wars said anyone could use the Force if they trained, Yoda talked to the clones about it.
impressive, good job man
here's some Moving Target and Twilight Company stuff
-The Alliance learns of the construction of the second Death Star. Leia designs and carries out Operation Yellow Moon, where she and a select group of Rebels traverse the galaxy pretending to be recruiting, to distract the Empire while the Rebel fleet secretly masses for attack.
-Following the destruction of the Death Star, Rebel High Command orders the invasion of the Mid-Rim from the Outer Rim, with the vanguard group Twilight Company leading the way in conquering planets. After almost a year, the Rebel Fleet becomes overstretched and the Rebels are forced into a defensive position before falling into retreat as the Empire goes on the offensive. Twilight Company is ordered to cover for retreating Rebels during the Mid-Rim Retreat.
-Governor Everi Chalis, the protege of Count Vidian, turns herself in to the Rebels after the Battle of Haidoral Prime when she determines that the Empire will try to kill her for her failure.
-Prelate Verge of the Imperial Ruling Council is assigned to track down Chalis and chooses Captain Tabor Seitaron to act as his aid.
-Chalis is taken to Hoth to meet with Rebel High Command and provides them with information on Imperial logistics and strategies but is separated from them and stuck with Twilight Company after the disastrous Rebel defeat.
-Chalis and Hazram Namir, who takes control of Twilight Company after Captain Evon's death at Hoth, form a plan - Operation Ringbreaker - to disrupt the Imperial supply chain by attacking the Kuat drive yards. Twilight Company strikes planet after planet to force Kuat to send out men and supplies for repairs to soften it up but find themselves stuck on Sullust when Verge and Seitaron trap them in a mining facility.
-Twilight Company miraculously turns the tide of battle while Chalis escapes to distant space and the capital of Sullust falls to the Rebellion.
lol, Only Kylo and the Knights of Ren actually confronted the Jedi. Not regular stormtroopers. Kylo and Finn never had contact with each other until the village.
Your agenda is full of holes.
But there are no Jedi in TFA though, they all got rekt except for Luke.
And by weakest during the Prequels, I think that was only their foresight sensing abilities. Everything else however, was the Jedi at the top of their game. We'll probably never see Jedi as strong as they were during TCW again. Or at least, definitely not in TFA. Perhaps in the later movies if it turns out Luke didn't give up training more Jedi..
This party's over. Go back to /tv/ and jerk off into condoms.
Thanks! I'm going to refrain from looking at those spoilers because I do intend to read those books very soon. I'll screencap it quickly because it may help me when I am making future updates. I just wanted to get what I had done so far posted because at least one anon has been asking for it.
The dude had the intelligence of a normal stormtrooper and got through all his stuff by sheer luck.
>Oh, a Jedi! Better shoot him with blasters!
Only lived through sheer luck and it finally ran out
can't read German but the newest issue of Rebels Magazine will be out in Germany soon (we all call it Rebels UK but it's actually a German magazine that then gets translated into English and published in the UK), and from what i can tell it looks like the new comic will be focused on Ahsoka and Sabine?
Not that anon, but you're wrong. There was literally a Rebels episode about them finding force sensativity in recruits, or have you forgotten?
And then Servants of the Empire, a 4-part book series about what happens to those force sensitive recruits.
>b-but things in the Empire changed, it's probably completely different in the First Order
The last book in the series introduces general Hux's father, who reveals his plan for training Stormtroopers from birth, which we have pieced together is happening in the First Order with Finn.
So yeah, it's extremely likely that they do still test Cadets for force sensitivity, and therefore extremely unlikely that Finn is force sensitive.
Hell, the Knights of Ren are probably made up of recruits who were found to be force sensitive.
He's right though, you seem like you're drunk or confused.
There wouldn't be anyone working for Supreme Leader Snoke and somehow not screened for Force potential. Getting them is a huge priority.
>"Ahsoka and Sabine's underwater mission"
BEACH EPISODE FINALLY
IT'S HAPPENING LADS
