OK, it's aired now...
I'm a lil more annoyed, to be honest, about the "little things"... The nits to be picked, if you will.
The "rifle that brings down a walker"... Then Jayson at Yak pointed out to me on Twitter the AT-DP almost seems more powerful than an AT-ST... I'd argue it's less diverse (in armament), so I think the AT-ST's job description is simply different, but the main cannon? And the designation? I agree... So the "one shot from a rifle topples it" idea does annoy me some.
Likewise I saw Dave Filoni in an interview basically saying Stormtroopers are idiots because they're "conscripted", which that notion alone bothers me... Stormtrooper, as a term, denotes an elite status. You're not a Stormtrooper because you were picked at a lottery. You're one because you wanted to be, or exemplified the qualities to be one.
Filoni's comparison was against Clones, who were born/bred to be troopers... But why do the OT troopers need to be so dumb? I appreciate the thought, but they've become the battledroids of the OT era, and I don't think that jives. At all. Regular army? I can buy... to an extent.
Rebels should really try to avoid this in the future IMO. It's all for the laugh but makes the episodes a little more "hollow" as someone said to me tonight. And I agree.
The AT-DP changes scale at various points, so take the toy for what it is. Some make the toy look pretty damned accurate, others make it look about 2/3 what it should be for some reason. May have been the perspective or something.
The Hasbro Stormie Transport is going to be nothing as cool as the model in the cartoon I'm afraid.
Totally aside from tonight's episode of course, but I wanted to say it.
Ezra's "outburst" to save Zeb became something of a debate for my friend and I, and I didn't mind it... I saw it as possibly even a little tinge of darkness (emotional outburst) in him, but nothing controlled or intentional? Though he has sort of shown he can intentionally do things he's somehow picked up somewhere along the way on his own.
There are ample cool accessory pieces I wish I had, in every episode, and they're just so cool but will go unmade by Hasbro. Those days are done.
2007-2009, it could've happened! #LongLiveYularrensBitchingTableAccessory
The Starspeeder(s) being highlighted as a thing was fun... The inclusion of the old school captain, even better.
And I like Chopper a lot, and I don't know why. I like the noises he makes I guess. I'm weird.
