Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition
« on: March 24, 2013, 03:50 PM »
thanks for watching Scockery :)

Yes this Prune Face in Jabbaīs palace reminds me

Kenner illustrated the box of vintage Millennium Falcon for ROTJ
with a desert scenario and backround characters like Prune Face and Nien Nunb.


In some old webs I remember some fans brought behind the scenes photos and
cut photos of a sulustan pilot in Tatooine, but I havenīt seen the photo of Orrimaarko
yet from the filming.


Best wishes.

I watched this chapter and liked it

good fight between Anakin and Barriss,
the later is close to a dark jedi, rather than sith.

She wants to change the methods of the order,
but she does not want peace, she pledges to violence
as she stated is the only way Jedi understand reality.


About the bouts Anakin vs Ventress and later vs Offee,

Skywalker proved he has a strong chin.

He took a side kick in the chin from Assajj (or a hook kick?)
and then a jumping twisting roundhouse in the jaws, by Barriss.


Hope in season 6, if he has to fight Maul, he could be more aware of
high kicks or at least return his foe one on the face.

I will want to resume all spoilers

Tarkin demanded death penalty from beginning

Palpatine looks serious but cold, nobody suspects of him, coz he lets Tarkin speaks the prosecution, while Padme speaks the defense.

Jedi donīt show support to Ashoka.... this demonstrates at this point for them is more important to keep their relationship with the Senate.

Anakin doesnīt speak in the trial of the senate, only in the jedi council.... TCW mantains him as a man of action rather than a negotiator or a lawyer, in ultimate case,  this role is up to his wife Padme Amidala.


As the most outstanding Jedi are capable of love (Anakin loves his wife and has appreciation for his padawan, Obi Wan loved in a courtoise way Satine, without material cosumption of Eros), the Sith are presented the most tanatical as possible.


I think one of the reasons for Maul to kill Satine Kryze was his incapability for Eros, let me explain.

Maul lost his lower section: pelvis and legs, he wont be capable to reproduce, maybe he is able to eliminate natural wastes from a dispositive like a manhole. Maul wonīt be able for pleasure never.


So Maul, from a certain point of view was jealous of the love which was opening a door for Obi Wan, he envied what made his Nemesis complete while made him look more mutilated in contrast.



I think we could recall that Sidious didnīt have a lover, and that could be coherent, because he is no tied to familiy, children, he never exposes weakneses to his foes neither to his allies (who could be tempted to betrail him too).

But Love and pleasure is another motivation of Power, a natural need too. A king or an emperor would contemplate it in his life, because it would be so hard to be deprived permanently from those satisfactions.

I like yavin Luke, and biker scout,
Vader is so reused
and Biggs only variant is the glossy pintjob

I think the cloaked lady is Barriss too. She framed Asoka and pumelled her.
But there is a leit motif=some inactive jedi or sith appear or come back reloaded.

Anakin looks frustrated, coz this arch is going to put him in the role of judge rather than fighter.

Well balanced sort of aliens, the jabba palace snake, the braniac guy,
I really liked them. But somebody can tell me please, why TCW spot Ithorians so fatty, with wide torsos, while rodians
are very skinny in contrast?

ep 18 season 5 is a blink to Harrison Fordīs Fugituve

the action outmatched episodes like Eminence, the dialogue was more mature than ever
and this is good, even for the audience of kids who enter deeper in the SW universe.

There are lot of speculations as
Ventress could have be hidden to kill the clones and framed Ashoka.

Her escape anticipate what could have been the troubles and adventures in
the exhile of Obi Wan Kenobi or Yoda.

Nice, it is the accurate paintjob deco

If it does not include the misile, target comp and all gadgets of Trench run X wing, speculators would rise the price of the latter.

Nick Gillard on ep.17!
turquoise 2-1Bs  (OT design)

A chapter focused on intrigue, this is other register this series explores.
Lara and Jakar a mixed marriage, but why human could marry so ugly aliens?

When a defector clone married a Twilek it was acceptable, but human with so odd creatures?

For a while it looked like Lara was kinda of Zam Wessel metamorpho especies.

Yes Nicklab, as you stated, Sidious plans must be insidious, sophisticated
perhaps weīll see the results on season 6.

I could only suppose that now nightsisters are in the target of Sidious
so he needs to destroy them (a republic army into dathomir could do the job),
however as alchemy has appeared on Clone Wars
Sidious would be eager to get that magic art from a night sister,
cause it will be a coveted resource for him. Maybe as he has collected several Holocrons
from fallen Jedi.


The most cruel and ruthless ending to this clash among Sith and Jedi
could be that Maul Kills Ashoka, forcing Anakin to literally destroy that devil (severing his arms, beheading him, etc.)
and Maybe making The Chose One take revenge on Dathomirian people, as he did with Tuskens. (falling into dark side or
preparing him to fall for ep.III events)

Nevertheless I wish Ashoka survives, cause she is a character who give freshness to the series, and she could, in a near future, contact classic characters such as Luke and Leia. Only saying.

I agree Sidious plans to confront Anakin with Maul, but The Chosen One is stronger.
Other discovery about bionic parts: Maul didnīt die because his bionic limbs donīt produce a short circuit which compromises his lungs.

About the magic armour of Opress, he ended in a simple short, even without his boots

there is another clue: Night Sisters, witches and Talzin can create material items from black magic (the green aura),
in some way it is a blink to sith alchemy. In EU there are sith mutants, beasts, transformed also by spells.

While Dark Side vs Light side of the Force was a duel of Ki or Chi, Sith vs Night sisters is a duel of magic.

Some fiction Universes keep the magic characters interacting with main characters (example: Shazam, Black Adam in DC)

Returning to Palpatineīs plot, he should confront Maul and other Sith assassins against the night sisters, as magic is posing an active opposition to dark side hegemony.

The duel Sidious vs devil brothres was ok and gave relief to the audeince when killing Opress

I agree with a previous coment, it si possible maul further face Dooku, even Grievous, lol  :D ;D
But someone must kill Maul. Anakin in rage, Obi Wan in justice or Yoda as preventing Sith to reassemble in the near future.


About Satine, her murder only showed Maul more crazy than ruthless.... itīs a pity Maul hates cutties.

Remember a bit when Jabba kills Oola, but the Hutt was in lust t this moment

For Filoni... he lost a lot killing Satine

I can undesrtand his plot and commercial purposes but


Satine in love with Obi Wan, would have been positif as most powerful Jedis have married Kento Malek, Anakin, Luke in expanded universe.

So many seasons with Satine and what a waste Obi Wan didnīt kiss her in the cell when she hugged him or as a farewell

I think it wouldnīt have express weakness in Jedi, as Sith are identified with Hate and Jedi  with Love.


Jedi without belongings, but who was watching? So Obi said: "ok I am 36-37 and canīt kiss a girl because it is not politically correct as I am a Jedi Master"

Justice is up to Kenobi, indeed Jedi feel the need of vengeance too, but it is a war.


In conclusion to definetely kill Maul a Jedi must behead him or then slice him in two, this time not horizontally, but vertically
like when the Cid, Rodrigo Díaz de Vívar did with a Sarracen enemy.
