TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)

What to say?

The positive thing was the lightsaber duels, and even then I felt cheated.  We didn't get to see the death scenes of the two Inquisitors (I know, kids' show).  The third fell to his death (supposedly.  Didn't see a body so...)

The bad
Double-bladed, spinning, helicopter lightsabers.  Worst idea ever.  Didn't see the Grand Inquisitor Malfoy/Connington using that.  Speaking of the Grand Inquisitor, has anyone replaced the guy or are the rest of the Inquisitors just incompetent and unqualified for the job?  Not that the GI was any better: defeated by a Jedi without much practice and a boy discovering his force powers.

More dead Inquisitors.  So it took Maul to do to three Inquisitors in a few minutes what Kanan and Ezra couldn't the whole season?  So essentially the Inquisitors are going to be killed off at season's end?  There's not much to fear in them, is there.  I really enjoyed the season two Inquisitors, especially the third one (8th Brother).  I liked his helmet design and figured there would be more to his story at the end, a big reveal.  But nope, lightsaber got damaged and he tried to flee helicopter-style only to have the lightsaber fail on him.  I suppose he should stay dead for that stupidity but if Maul can fall and survive, why can't this guy?  Maul's a Sith though.  And if Maul meets up with Ezra and Kanan again, Maul should be able to take them both down easily.

Ezra.  I can't get into his character.  There's nothing likable about him.  I wish they would kill him off.  The show would be better without him.

Ahsoka's showdown.  Would have loved to see more of her duel with Vader, as it was fascinating.  Ahsoka's fate is also open: no body, no proof she's dead.

Blind Kanan: The Ear That Sees.  That will be an interesting change to his character that I can't wait to see his development.

Inquisitors: I wish that these antagonists would stick around longer.  Also, Kanan and Ezra should face different ones through the season and recycle them every now and then.  Instead the heroes meet the same ones every time (Small Galaxy Syndrome) which it makes it seem like there aren't many inquisitors around and produced when needed.  Also, it would have made sense that the Grand Inquisitor would be directing the others on their missions to kill Jedi and in the final few seasons hunt after Kanan and Ezra personally until he is defeated in the series finale.  I'd also lie to see some capable Inquisitors as well.  Bring some other Jedi into the story and have them be offed showing how much of a threat the Inquistors are and that the Purge is still ongoing.  Heck, they could even have it in the holo-news in the background: "Renegade Jedi Quinlon Vos executed for crimes against the Empire".

Anyways, I liked the show but it can be improved.

Luke was a real disappointment to me though. I don't like the pink waxy plastic they used on him and Hux. I prefer the painted heads like Jedi Luke or X-Wing Luke.

It's all the sunscreen he wears.

Another negative for Luke is the lack of accessories that Han had.  Give Luke the Stormtrooper belt, rifle, floppy hat, poncho, grappling the very least the belt, hook and rifle to go with the micro binoculars.

The Snowtrooper are in the new wave so you'll hopefully find that one.

Hah I thought I was the only one wondering about the pilot.  But hey I'm sure pilots are a dime a dozen for the Rebels!

Seriously though that's one of those things about this show.  And add in Zeb's music...  Would it have been hard to get something that had a Cantina or Laptinek sound to it?  No?  So 80's bubblegum rock?  Ok. ::)

Actually, someone (Hera?) said that the Rebellion was lacking pilots, so I'd think she'd have been more of a priority than Rex.

Oh yeah, forgot about the music.  Too much of an Earth feel to it.  What would be cool is a Lapti Nek that is the original and Sly Snoodles did a remake.

And what happened to the pilot?  They went in looking for Rex and her, found Rex but no mention of Dreiden (?) after they found Rex and left.  I didn't see any remains so they essentially left her behind.  No mention afterwards.  Nice heroes these Rebels are.  Is the pilot a Star Wars equivalent to a Red Shirt?

I also felt that the episode didn't respect the idea of the Rebels.  It felt like the Rebels were essentially the Empire in the fact that they find a base, build there, place sensors that disrupted the lives of the native species on the planet.  But hey, they're spiders and attacking the Rebels irregardless that their actions were irrespective to the natives so we should just kill them just because they are spiders and they need the land for the base more than they do.

And I didn't get the Vader theme foreshadowing at the end.

Picked up the new Luke Skywalker today (St Louis area).  Also had Kanan and Ahsoka as well but stashed them for a local.  A nice, unexpected surprise while on my search for Resistance Rey.

I think there'll be some "Disney raped my childhood" rants (I think there already are after what they did to the EU/Legends).

Also didn't care for the "Pitch Black" like creatures.

Weren't those Acklay creatures?  I assumed that since it was a moon of Geonosis, and there were Acklay in the Geonosis arena that they were supposed to be Acklay.

They made a noise like the Acklay, but didn't look like them.  Perhaps it's the animated version of them?  A cousin?

Edit: according to wookieepedia, the creatures are called Bonzami.

Yeah, I didn't care for Kallus' change here.  There aren't enough baddies on the show and Kallus was a mainstay.  We don't see the Inquisitors enough and Vader can't be in every episode either.  If Kallus defects then there isn't that born and bred Imperial officer that is after the Ghost crew.  Kallus sounded apologetic about the massacre of Lasats and didn't seem to character.  Maybe if he described things from the Empire's point of view as being right.  I understand the whole respect between soldiers when they are trying to survive but I think Kallus should have retained his disdain for what Zeb is doing (maybe under the guise of them being viewed as terrorists instead of heroes).

But 0 SA 3.75" if that's what you're wondering.

I'm guessing they've dumped the 6" line then.  Supposedly there was to be a third wave but I don't think the support was there.

At the 3.75" scale.

Maybe they should do the TF and GI Joe crossover and see how that goes?

Hopefully we will see more of these announced at Toy Fair (although do they deal with exclusives there?)

Not usually.  Sometimes they end up in the slideshow portion (that hasn't happened for a long while though).  Definitely not on the show floor.

The last announced (hinted, actually), not displayed, exclusive that I recall was the SDCC 6" Boba/Han set.
