So this is not going to be the Chopper they promised us on the Mural Card? Boo.

  ill be also interested in how they might explain how Ezra survived on the Star Destroyer during their hyperspace flight and then managed to leave the Star Destroyer when they arrived.  Maybe Ezra and Thrawn reached some kind of agreement, or Thrawn didn't want to kill him as he might be their only way back with the Purrgil?

Iím wondering if they will flash back to explain that as well. I mean, the Purrgil had literally broken through all the windows on the bridge, and Iím no physics major but Iím pretty sure you canít go through hyperspace Al Fresco  :D

Yeah, that was kinda the big payoff episode for sure and they did a good job with it. Agree with Jeff that there was tons of awesome toy potential there. I think of 10-12 figures they could do easily just off the top of my head.

Iíll hold off on going into details for now too, but one thing I really liked is how they explained why it was not possible for Ezra to return using the Purgill again. Well written stuff.

Should people in another galaxy even know what a Jedi is?  ???

For anyone that missed out at first like me, the Amazon Holiday Mando is now back in stock. Just grabbed one.  :)

No complaints here, Iíll lap up some Clone Wars fan service all day long. Captain Rex and Maul Mandos? Please and thank you.

Wonder why Hera didnít go too? Plenty of room in that mouth, lol.

Seems like they are starting to skimp on Tiers. There should have been at least one more for The Ghost. And 2 face plates is pretty weak for this one. Itís a decent price though, and already over 25% funded, so should get done. Happy for those that wanted this guy.

I think it goes back to what the Nicks said.  Sabine lost everything in the Night of Thousand Tears and now that Ezra is the only family she has left, she isn't willing to sacrifice him.  I hope they expand on her loss a bit more than what they did in later episodes, because I felt it was a little glossed over.

I totally agree.  The writers have not done a great job of portraying this attachment to Ezra.  A casual fan would have a hard time picking this up, and even a hardcore fan like myself having watched every episode of Rebels multiple times didn't carry forward enough of a feeling of attachment between Ezra and Sabine.  Ezra seemed to have more of an attachment than Sabine did.

Maybe they needed some flashbacks or some other storytelling trick to tie this all together better.  There was a lot more time spent on the Sabine/Ahsoka dynamic and very little on the Sabine/Ezra dynamic.

1000% YES. The sudden proliferation of Sabezra shippers online points to a fundamental lack of understanding of that relationship. She was never particularly attached to him on the show, no more than Zeb so why would she suddenly be in love with him now?

I do think it has more to do with having lost her own brother like you guys were saying, but I also think they could have done a much better job establishing that through flashbacks or some kind of incidental narrative. Itís probably a lot less confusing if you never watched Rebels at least in that regard.

Was it ever actually In Stock? As much as people complain about these things I would be irritated if it really sold out that fast.

The problem is that literally millions of peopleís lives will be lost once they fetch Thrawn. The whole point of Ezraís sacrifice in the first place was to get rid of Thrawn. Handing his allies the means to rescue him negates everything Ezra set out to do. Oh and also Ahsoka too. When you look at it from that perspective it seems like one of the most insanely idiotic decisions ever. I say that as a longtime Sabine stanner too, she was never one to put her own feelings before the mission.

They could have easily written their way around that by just having her show up late, or have him snatch it away using the Force or something. The way they did it just makes her seem weak and stupid though. IMHO

Well, that escalated quickly!

Happy to see them hit all the tiers, as this also guarantees us Sabine and Chopper on mural cards at some point as per the recent Q&A.  :)

If it gets to 20000 they should throw in Sabine and Chopper, or a cool flight stand.

Prevent another all-out Galactic War by shooting a stupid map.

I'm wondering if a blaster would even destroy that map seeing as it took Baylan's lightsaber several seconds to do it.

Serious question, though, why didn't Ahsoka fight Marrock and Baylan with two lightsabers instead of one?  Did one get damaged in the initial fight?

Those are two good points! She should have at least tried though. I was wondering about the other lightsaber too. Will have to rewatch that scene againÖ

Iím sorry, but Sabine is a ******* moron.  ::)

YOU HAD ONE JOB! Prevent another all out Galactic War by shooting a stupid map. Millions of lives hanging in the balance. But no, do the stupid selfish thing. And right after seeing what went down with Ahsoka, who literally just lectured her about this exact thing ten minutes earlier. She essentially murdered those two X-Wing pilots too.

I guess that will be the highlight of the Ghost on this show tooÖhey, it almost got blown up! Go buy our HasLab!  :D

Always nice to see Carson ďOppaĒ Teva though. I guess this was after his offworld meeting with Din?

Weird that the last 4 episodes are pretty much all gonna be The World Between Worlds and Peridia. Because I canít think of a single reason why they would waste any more screen time on Hera and whatever is going on in that galaxy. Thereís literally nothing she can do to help at this point, so thanks for showing up, I guess?

Gotta say, this feels nothing like Rebels to me. Which is strange considering how much Filoni is involved.
