Thanks for sharing, Nick... Hmm, just the Maul brothers and Mandalorians so far... and the Etas.  Not much of a teaser, to get me excited, but I was hoping for some saber action or some bounty hunters.  I'm sure we'll see those soon enough.

Actually, those fighters looked more like the Mandalorian fighters to me than anything else.  I think we saw those in season 2.

"Just show the characters fans go crazy for Maul and Mandalorians."

In reality, those episodes will air in March of 2013.

You know, there's a reason they call clips like these "Teasers".

;D

In a frame or two it looks almost like those mandalore fighters have astrodroids on board.  I'm sure they actually don't, but it would be cool to see bad guy fighters with astrodroids.  So far we've only seen them in good guy ships.

I was just re-watching the trailer, and I couldn't spot any astromech droids.  Some of the seatbacks in the Mandalorian ship cockpit look like some kind of a dome, but that's the closest thing I saw to an R2 unit.

Yeah, that's what I was talking about.  From the front-side angle, it looked at first like a round droid dome right alongside the cockpit, but from the straight side or back angle it just seems like part of the ship itself.

Too bad, since it would have made for an interesting feature in many ways.

I wish they'd focus on what the Clone Wars are really about, and that's not Maul or the Mandalorians. (Both of which I have no interest in.)

Where are the good old days when Grievous has a big weapon... Anakin/Obiwan go in to blow it up... Grievous runs away?

A Full Length Season 5 Clone Wars Trailer hit Youtube...  Kinda low quality and at a sharp angle, but worth watching IMO.

CW Season 5 Full Trailer Leaked

I liked that, even for a brief second, a big space battle was shown, and appeared to include the Z-95's again.  Nice to see a little Star Warring in Star Wars.  Death Watch almost seemed to be getting a much larger push than Maul/Oppress in this.

Good to see.  Assume a legitimate release will hit soon.

Clicky to check it out.

The full legitimate season 5 Trailer is up exclusively at Entertainment Weekly...

-Falleen
-Multiple threats not aligned with each other
-Bitchin' looking space battle
-Alderaan?

I'm always a little built up by the trailers.  I hope this season is really outstanding.  I was a little let down last year.  A lot really.  I want this year to really just be good episodes stacked from start to finish.
