Hera's Heroes.

It's all about Hera making sub sandwiches for the crew.

Is this the first appearance of Scout Troopers on REBELS?  How does an irregular droid like Chopper constant fool Imperial personnel? He's just that damn good.

Another arrogant incompetent imperial officer and Thrawn, who has short temper when it comes to people who don't appreciate art.

Why is a GRAND ADMIRAL running around in what appears to be the Empire's smallest class of capital ship? Are Imperial Class Star Destroyers in short supply?

Kinda of a so-so episode.

Rumors the sequel will be Force Ten from Rogue One. Harrison Ford will play Han Solo's dad.  :P

The Goss Trooper is the best....Goss Toowers head on Resistance Trooper body. The other half is an odd midget, but...

They always demo this on a table / smooth surface.  I wonder how well the walking feature works with carpeting and if the feet get caught and topple the walker.

We know it can get tripped by a thin cable or even loose logs.

It wasn't planned, but they had to do something with all the one produced with extremely warped wings.  :P

The NYCC clip hints at it being someone. But who knows.

I found MOSEP at a Wal-Mart, still at $10.83, taped up blister. That was more than I paid for mine. Still, I passed. Only others were 3 Finns.

$2 Inquisitor (yeah, the FIFTH BROTHER....I was grand inquisitor) at another Meijer, only other figs left were a pair of ZUVIOS. If you Constable the heat, get your butt outta the clearance rack!

$9 First Order TIES at Wal-Mart...came close to getting one. The warping wing talk and just lack of space made me second guess it.

The Antilles Extraction.

Wedge needs a tooth removed and CHOPPER lives up to his name!

This was a gory episode for a kid's show.   :o Chopper seemed sadistic.   :-X

So anyway, Hobbie, screw him, this was the Antilles extraction.

Those must be subpar rebel pilots or older model A-Wings, because the ROTJ A-Wings can out run Interceptors.

All imperial installations have the same interior design. Good news for SPACE WALLS makers.

Sabine look too nice in that tight TIE pilot uniform. old is he supposed to be?

New enemy TIE ace. Not Baron Fel.

Governor Irina Spalko...whatever. Die already.

Yeah, so let's have the temperamental teen command one of our precious blockade runners.  Sato, you need to die, too.

Detacting TIE Fighter wings....clever nod to Kenner.

Sci-fi/horror rule, the black guy dies first. He didn't need to die, but since he was the doubter, he had to.

Unsurprising reveal is surprising to anyone under 6 who is watching.

Roomy TIE BOMBER cockpit, the cartoon occupancy level rule strikes again! Was hoping they'd drop speed, fall behind the Interceptor and fire a missile at it. Guess I played TIE FIGHTER too much in the 90's. (It probably didn't have ordnance loaded).

Oh, WOW. They went to all that and got 2 new pilots. They lost 6 at the opening. At that rate, the Rebellion is done for.

There's an awesome battle sequence that involves zip lines and giant hand held and backpack missile launchers, the stormtroopers have reactive armor that falls off when they get hit (Disney wanted minimal bloodshed).  8)

The pauldrons appear, the rest are probably silly accessories.

$2 figures at Meijer, (hopefully not just today, I didn't see any signs or flyers regarding a special clearance sale), they were still marked $3.98. If you want Zuvio and Resistance Troopers...they did have a couple of Hux's left and one Goss Toowers after I bought one of every one. Only other location I've been to recently had the same selection, with some the blue droid and Sarco Planks, maybe a guavian enforcer, but that was last week.

Depending on how well I like the trooper, I might go back.

My TFA collection is now at 7 characters.  :P

I forgot they made Nahdar Vebb. They never made Captain Ackbar or the young prince. One of the quirks of the CW toys, one shot characters got made why characters from entire story arcs didn't.

This is a thing fans of GI JOE get into with Cobra. They apply modern US military structure to them and it doesn't mesh, especially with Cobra's seeming redundant troop types.

Bodie's jumpsuit reminds me of the Rodian Tseebo with the Lobot headset from REBELS. Though, he wore grey. Maybe civilian laborers? INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS?  :D

Not to be confused with Imperial Navy Commandos.
