I think I almost yelled that too.
I didn't get to watch till this evening by myself... Vader made the episode, honestly. Everything he did, said... Perfect. He's cocky, condescending with his subordinates... That Admiral can't be long for this world, right? I mean he may attempt to pass the buck on the last part there, but really this guy's gotta be running out of chances with Vader.
The preview shot of him lifting the wrecked walkers and chucking them over his shoulder like a McDonald's hamburger wrapper was awesome.
Phoenix Squadron was also awesome, and if Hasbro ***** the bed on (at the very least) redecoing the A-Wing to McQuarrie Blue, I'll be annoyed. Ideally, they'd retool the blasters too, to McQuarrie styled ones. I'd be content with that and no other mods (the fins bi-secting the engine, etc.). They HAVE to get off the pot on this one. I need a McQuarrie A-Wing!
Loved the Rebel's fleet by the way. Small, a cool different Corellian CR design too, which I always had this suspicion (and with some EU help) that there were tons of that "style" out there similar to the YT series ships... Cool seeing those though.
Also enjoyed immensely that some EU aspects were kept around... The Imperial Shuttle Trooper compartment featuring the restraint bars from EU (including Force Commander, sorry Matt_Fury!
) and Imperial Squadrons being designated Greek Alphabet letters (Delta Squad, etc., as in X-Wing and TIE Fighter). Just was cool they touched on little stuff.
Lando's droid is rockin' too, and I hope we get that as a figure at some point. Kind of not counting on it, but I'd be down for that one for sure. Loved those funky colors.
