Friday' episode was one of the best in the series. I think they've given all of the good lines to Cad Bane or at least he delivers the lines better than most characters.

I hope they (Hasbro) gets around to making Cad Bane in his new gear as well as Rako Hardeen. Can't wait til next week's episode.  8)

Yeah, we've definitely seen that before.  And in figure form!



And btw, did anyone notice the gratuitous fedora easter egg as Cad Bane was looking for a new hat?

Yeah, a phase 1 clone trooper helmet there, too....possibly the last time we see one on the show? Guess they wound up in surplus stores and/or were looted off battlefields.

 Other stuff at Pablo's Pawn shop:
Cato Parasitti helmet
Death Watch chest armor
Mando rocket pack
a bubble space helmet like Anakins
some helmet next to the clone helmet that I can't place

I agree with you Jayson, it was really fun I thought...  one of the better story arcs of the series so far.

And I'm loving actually seeing some EU making it into the series.  Z95's, the "Hound's Tooth" ship design as well as the Space Yacht/"Lady Luck".  Some good stuff there being snuck into the series.

Good designs exist in the EU so it's nice to see they're not being completely ignored.

Loved the Nal Hutta security fighters too.  Very cool designs I thought.

So, did anyone in the preview for The Box notice the unused concept plant guy from the Cantina?  Nice.  And tingling with electricity to boot.

The only time this design EVERY showed up in something other than concept art was in West End Games' books and they made a miniature of it as well. 

It's insanely cool to see that design make the show.

I noticed Ithorian bounty hunter. A nod to the kids of decades ago who used Kenner's Hammerhead as a baddie because he came with a bad guy gun.  ;) Or maybe a big thumbing of the nose to the EU's pacifist take on the species.

Or probably just reusing character models.  :P

Hmmm, bounty hunters assembled from around the galaxy to compete in a no-holds barred fight to the finish to determine who will get to serve Dooku?

What a great idea! I love it!

In fact, I loved it even more WHEN WE SAW THIS EIGHT YEARS AGO IN THE TARTAKOVSKY SERIES.  ::)

Meh, it'll be cool no doubt, but to quote the inimitable Claudette Wims "That's just lazy, son."

Sounds like "Death Race" or "Gamer" or some movie like that.

Actually Dooku uses it a lot.  It was also the premise of "Bounty Hunter" for the Gamecube, since Dooku was looking for the Clone template and did so by putting a bounty on some cult and having the best hunters go for it.  Whoever got it and won, won the contract.  Jango did, met Zam along the way, and killed his nemesis in the process.

Man, that poster jpg over at JTA is hella cool. Wish it made for a better screen saver. (too big for good res)

Ultimately though, another cruel tease because I already want ALL of those figures and at best we might get a Rako Hardeen and Cad Bane with new hat.  ::)

Dang, derivative or not that was freaking sweet. Like a SW/Cube mash-up...mmm.

So for the last five we got Embo, Cad Bane, and Rako, and I think Derrown and Twazzi?

Those last three would all make kick-ass action figures.

Or better yet, a Geonosis style series of 2-packs, six total with all 12 bounty hunters. Plus maybe throw in a Morallo Eval/Dooku set and we're good to go.

FOUR STARS tonight, pretty much good from start to finish for me.  :)

It was good enough, but predictable in that Obi-Wan would try to save the others and spare Eval.

Bane gets his old hat back...what a shame.

The box had a trap specifically dependant on a certain lifeform being present to deactivate? What if he had died earlier? (Eval would've used a different challenge I guess).

Likewise, what if they over dwindled the contendors to less than 5?

Since Moralo Eval is the schemer of the mission, why is Dooku so willing to treat him as disposable?

I wondered why no one took the sniper rifle and shot Eval with it.

Bane has a sense of honor...hmmm...for guy who kills someone over a hat.

Although it was predictable and everything, I really enjoyed tonight's episode as well.  Just a fun watch.  And, even though Hasbro has been slower with the CW stuff lately (and this year), I really hope we see those bounty hunters soon too - pretty cool.
