The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The new TIE Fighters

That's how some have theorized the hue of TIEs changed from ANH to esb.  That the paint had some practical impact.

I always thought the color difference was due to camouflage.  Death Star gray vs space dark blue.

I'd say the simple answer right now is a "solar panel" on a TIE Fighter is not a solar panel on your neighbor's pool heater though, and thus doesn't work the same way, whatever its purpose may be.  And so a white one maybe works as well as a black one, or better even. *shrugs*

yes, but then we know that light colors tends to reflect sunlight where as dark colors absorb it, but I can suspend my disbelief at the door.

Back to the US trailer, there's a scene of a forest planet burning up (after seeing Poe being tortured).  I wonder if that could be Endor?  It could fit if what I heard about the Knights of Rens' agenda is correct (collecting Vader things and destroying the rest).  Plus the New Order might destroy the planet since it was the home to the decisive victory and the fall of the Emperor, Vader and Empire. 

Of course, pure speculation, but that would be a "whoa" moment.

So I'm guessing he's skipping Daisy because Daisy is very effective at drawing out Inhumans to eliminate?  It can't be just so he can get to the lightning dude.

That's what I'm thinking... he's using her to draw the Inhumans out.

As for last weeks episode.  I loved seeing Simmons on Survivor: Portal World.  When she ran into the Astronaut, I kind of figured there'd be a hitch to the Fitz-Simmons relationship.

How did that happen?  Your wall of vintage figures are all in clamshells.  Did he drop the clamshell and the bubble still busted?

I think the most important question is: Is you son still alive?  ;)

Bummer, man.  I'm speechless.

I wonder how much the cantina two packs will go up?

Looks like also has raised TBS 6" figures to $21.99.

The FO Stormtrooper and the Constable are listed at that price as of this moment.

Edit: Sat morning: Looks like Poe and the Enforcer are also at $21.99 on amazon (Phasma not in stock).

I'm betting this sticks.  SA 3.75" went up to $13-4, 5 POA went up and Hasbro's been pushing 6". 

Looks like amazon now has 6" figures list at a "regular" price of $21.99.

That is true, Nick, she did.  Vader must have been put priority on finding her after their confrontation earlier this season.  Perhaps since she was disgusted by the Jedi way, she could be swayed to become an Inquisitor and right hand (perhaps overthrow the Emperor)?  But it still doesn't explain why the Sister was hanging out.  All that was needed was a line of dialogue when she was with her probe droids (why have they come to my lair? or My leads have paid off).  Who knows, maybe Wolffe is still a loyal to the Empire clone?

I think I'll just stick with calling the Inquisitors Brother and Sister (I keep thinking Seventh Son all the time). 

I think it would be interesting to see how the Empire recruits Force-sensitives to become Inquisitors.  I'm sure some of it is out of fear for their lives, but how they are indoctrinated, etc., especially if some were former Jedi... and maybe as I mentioned above altered so they don't appear as Jedi (since it would be odd that Palpatine would hire traitors to hunt down traitors... not that it ever happens in real life, right?)  I doubt we'll see it if the show is called "Rebels" and not "Inquisitors."  But, as I said in my previous post, I think it would be an interesting "twist" if the Sister is who you think it is, Nick, because her plotline was left open in TCW, especially with Palpatine's interest in her fate.

My question is: How did the 7th Sister end up on the station?  Did she just decide to hang out there and "hey, Jedi onboard!"  There wasn't any dialogue from her as to why she was sitting there, even if the Imperials are keeping Inquisitors in old, abandoned places just in case.  And judging by Han's comments on the new TFA trailer, it would seem that the Jedi/Sith thing was just called a "myth" so 30 years from that point it felt that way. 

Then the 2nd Son shows up and is surprised to see the Sister.  For what it sounds like, Inquisitors don't work with a partner since the Son and Sister were always at odds with how to deal with the situation.

I, too, had heard about who people were thinking the Sister actually was.  I think that would make for a cool story, but I don't think this fallen Jedi and the Sister look alike.  Of course, maybe there was some slight alterations done so she was not recognizable.  I also like how her voice is not natural, but has a robotic ring to it.

Thinking about it (from the movies, not books), only Han, Leia and their group know that Luke is a Jedi.  Any other Rebel may not have witnessed any Jedi moments with Luke.  In fact, Luke may have been considered just a prisoner of war or a deserter during the Battle of Endor.  He surrenders to Vader and somehow returns for the Victory Celebration.  Not one Rebel saw what happened in between that time.  That would be an interesting take on things.

Sounds like "Just let it in". 

It is.  Had captions on since I can't enjoy with full volume (kids in bed).

I gave the episode a B for the graphics and the return of Rex. I hope it gets better next week. Also, after next week there is one more episode and then itís off for another month.  :-\

Sounds like Hasbro's release schedule.  Release some here and there, then wait 6 months.
