I think Hondo's key character element is selfishness. He had nothing to gain from helping the rebels on Onderon. He already was paid handsomely. He did not bring weapons to be a nice guy, and I get the impression based on the Dooku/Ani/Obi ransom episode that if he could have turned that situation into his monetary favor he would have.
     Also remember Hondo was gunning down little farmers for spices before Anakin, Obi, and Ahsoka stepped in during the bounty hunters episode. Children are not too far from there.
     I think this wrinkle in Hondo's character is hard or a lot of us to swallow because we want him to be the lovable scoundrel that Han Solo was for us in the OT. (because sometimes he as been)Turns out most bad guys don't have a heart of gold.
     It does seems a bit unrealistic that he crystals are worth so much though. If they were, would not every padawon be gunned down by a headhunting sniper?

Thanks John C. If the shipping department comes through, there will be one more gift under the tree this year. The JSF will make a great toys for tots donation as well.
     I still have to applaud Hasbro for finding a way for most of us to buy up old junk we already have filling a warehouse just to get something new. Someone there was smart enough to think of this. "distribution problems" - ha!

I liked the episode, right up until Ashoka was hit in the shoulder blade with a laser blast from a gunship. All that did was break her concentration and require a band-aid. It would have been better if Lux would have fired at the cannon first and have the shot his the ground beside her and distract her. The fighting was cool though, other than the very Avatar influenced creatures they rode on.

Hopefully the next arc will be even better.

Picked up another Kamino Training SBD today at Wal-mart. Now I have enough to display if they ever release the other 3 members of domino squad.

What do you think the percentage of likelihood is of Steela's name being another Filoni nod to the Pittsburgh Steelers? I think he wanted another shot after it after "Goldie" turned out to be a bad guy.

She is pretty bad ass with Polomalu hair...

My son and I watched it a few times now. There certainly are some jokes written for Star Wars moms and dads. If you have not watched it yet, it is worth your 22 minutes. My only question now is what mini-figure will they release with this when it comes out on DVD.

Just speculation, but I can see TRU having a 50% off sale and selling this for 90 dollars. Still not low enough to get me to buy, but I might think about it if we have crazy cyber Monday deals like the shuttle at Amazon last year. Having it 50% off and under 100 buck might encourage Christmas mom shoppers to pull the trigger though.

It would be great to have Obi, Ani, and Ashoka released with the robes. That way Hasbro could keep the key figures on the pegs but I could justify buying them for an eighth time. The Rex rebel outfit has some promise too. It could head swap into some extra background rebels (that we know we will never see).

The episode was a lot slower than the teasers would have led us to believe, but I still think this arc has potential. Gorilla warfare could be very interesting to watch.

Pure awesome sauce! This was the best season opener of the series. Loved he up tempo fighting. Good thing they moved this to mid morning on Saturday so kids can watch Jedi get killed and monsters get their arms and legs hacked off...I'm guessing he show producers were not anticipating the time switch when this episode was written.

Just watched the "ask Dave" clips from the sw site. He confirmed that an updated Twilight will return in season five, thanks to Anakin's engineering prowess, but also hints that it may be destroyed before the season ends. I only hope it s featured prominently enough to allow for a TRU exclusive to be made. I still think next to the falcon, this would be a money maker in the large scale line for Hasbro. But more likely Dave and the crew are going to blow it up so people stop asking about it.

He also teases the fate of Rex and confirms that the Lex Ahsoka storyline will be elaborated.

Overall I have high hopes for this season. And now that the show is in syndication maybe toy sales will see a spike.

Snagged the Maul target set and Villians Snags set at Target for he sale price, and then stumbled onto the Training battle Droid, Wolfe, and Fox, at my local backwoods Walmart when I stopped to get some hairspray for my daughter. The prices were 9.99 a piece so I only picked up the Battle Droid and had to debate about Fox. If I picked him up I would gave felt like a scalper since I already bought one online. These should be hitting in force if this store (that has not restocked since February) has new stuff.

Saw Fox today at my local backwoods Wal-mart. I have a feeling these will be hitting in force soon. I left it there for hopefully a collector and not a scalper to find.

Did I just pay 20$ a piece for two clone repaints and 2 chew toys for my dog???

But it still feels good to buy something new!

Instead of a mini Stanley Cup like last work stoppage, I hope this years "thank you" to the fans is lining up all the owners and player reps and letting everyone kick them square in the nuts.
