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.

If Stormtrooper helmet on/off doesn't make 2 figures, then Finn jacket on/off isn't different either (except Hasbro would make a vest and paint the sleeves to keep it cheap.  So really no difference in my opinion.

I've got a spare Bespin Lando and Carbonite Han if you're interested.

I think you missed my point, Nick.
