TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)

Why do we think anyone knows?  Obi-Wan can probably sense it and maybe Yoda, but they're supposedly living out a very exiled existence out of contact from anyone else.  The Emperor used droids to build the Vader armor, so how would anyone make the link back to Anakin? 

Tarkin - maybe since they work so closely at times and he's close to the Emperor.  But I'd also bet he's not smart enough to ask or reveal it to anyone else.

Ahsoka - maybe if she comes in contact with Vader, but it's not like the Jedi can just mind read everyone in the galaxy.  Vader can't really get a feel for Luke in the movies unless he's close by.

R2-D2 & C3PO - no evidence that either has a clue who Vader is. They're clearly afraid of Vader, but I don't see any reason why they would know he was Anakin at this point. 

Bail Organa - he knows about Leia and the Jedi of old, so he's got an inside track.  But what link does he have to knowing Vader is Anakin?  Unless Obi/Yoda have shared with him, but when they split with the twins, I'm not sure even they know Vader is alive.  I took that Obi left him for dead in ROTS.

Owen & Beru - I'd be shocked if they knew.  They clearly knew Anakin had a dark side and very likely knew about the Tusken camp slaughter.  I think that's why Owen doesn't want Luke to become like his father - not because he knows the Vader connection.

I'm more shocked that people didn't recognize Luke from his last name.  Anakin Skywalker was probably all over the holo news during the clone wars.  With only a generation going by, you'd think Luke Skywalker's name would have gotten around as having some potential connection.  Maybe he was too isolated and young to register, but you'd think Imperial intelligence would be on the lookout for anyone potentially related to Jedi heritage (Kenobis, Windus, etc.).

Weird.  It is amazing to see all the new varieties of stuff coming out though.  I tend to think of Star Wars as such a U.S. thing, but it's got an incredible global following.

Happy to see Ahsoka back in the mix for the cartoon, but will be less pleased if she shows up in the movieverse.  I'm still unsure of what Non-Movie material is considered cannon since Disney took over, but it looks like Clone Wars is part of the official timeline now.  Personally, I really like both cartoons.  I know they're not perfect and often watered down, but they are on par or better than most of what we see in the action cartoon world.  Certainly better than the old Droids or Ewoks runs, or the mutlitude of different Transformers cartoons those fans have to deal with. 

That's quite a loss.  Sad to see him gone.

Today's face off is Fruity Rebels vs. Coca Rebels.  Get 'em before the Empire does!

Ditto.  Not at all impressed with the Emperor, buuuuut I bought Yoda and he's a step up from that.  I don't mind the clone so much, but would much rather have another OT figure.  Where is my Lando Hasbro???

When should we expect this wave to hit retail?

EE lists them as April, so probably Late April/May unless they run into any weird Pacific Port delays....

That was confusing.  No idea if I got entries in or not.   :-\

Well, apparently I was able to figure it out because I just received notice that I won.  Whoohoo!  Thanks for letting me know Jeff!  I'd buy you a beer to celebrate tonight, but you never come to hang out with the group anymore.   ;)

The Barton version of Hawkeye has bare arms and a mild expression.  Dark Hawkeye (Bullseye) has long sleeves and a shifty evil grin.

Did you ever find a Red She-hulk?  I still have yet to see this in the wild.

I think the armor would impede his swimming more than his beard.

Forget speed, how do you even trim your beard underwater?  Does he have the opposite of a shower, where there's a little air bubble for him to shave in or something?

Why would an underwater dude have long or neatly trimmed beards?  Don't swimmers shave off body hair for better speed/performance?  That dude's crazy hairy for an underwater guy.

Just something else to consider - it is a royal pain setting up Ebay auctions IMHO.  Setting up multiple items in one picture or using the same picture for multiple auctions is a time saver versus creating everything from scratch five different times.  I hope it works out for your friend - just some added food for thought.
