I won't say too much, and maybe it was common knowledge if I had read a little more about the book ahead of time, but there are some pretty important OT characters in this book all of a sudden I wasn't expecting.

If I recall correctly this comes out today.
That is correct. I was thinking of picking it up but I think I'll listen to SWAN's podcast review of it first.
It's a "manchurian candidate" type thing, so I think it's plausible. I never honestly had a problem with it. I'm sure the more independant the Clone, the less likely they are to follow the order, but the true independant Clones are the ARC's, perhaps the Commandoes... Commanders are trained by ARCs, according to EU, but they're not ARCs. They're still the more simplified Clone design.
I still think it was highly implausible all of the clones instantly turned on the Jedi in the first place.
How are the order 66 scenes already so powerful? At what point did the Jedi earn our sympathy?
My current thinking on this is that the show will end with Ashoka no longer being a Padawan and going off with her own troops. They are NEVER going to show her dying on the show. Captain Rex will offer to keep an eye on her for Anakin and ask to transfer to Ashoka's squad as their commander. Then when GL finally releases ROTS on BR, we'll get a new Order 66 scene where Ashoka is taken out by Captain Rex wearing the ROTS style armor - which after the cartoon being on for three or four seasons would make that scene incredibly powerful.
Build a Droid has been by far the best insert that Hasbro's ever done. I really wish they were continuing.
Agree with you. Hasbro just needs to STOP making the obscure figures! They really do! That's the No. 1 way to get figure sales up again (besides lowering the price of figs by a $1 or 2.
But how many more resculpts of the main characters can you sell before the entire collecting community abandons the line?
