TV-9D9 / Re: The Book of Boba Fett (Spoilers)
« on: Today at 10:13 AM »
This all started with a bad press release that referred to the ship by its class instead of the name of Slave 1.  Boba Fett did the same thing last night.  It would be like Han Solo telling someone he just met that he needed to get his YT-1300 freighter instead of saying the Millenium Falcon.

I think its more than that.  The listing in the comics showed 6 bounty hunters along with their specific ship names, not the type of ship. 

Bossk and "Hound's Tooth"
IG-88 and "IG-2000"
Zuckess and "Mist Hunter"
Valance Beilert and "Broken Wing"
Dengar and "Punishing One"
Boba Fett and "Firespray"

Its not really that far fetched that in today's climate, Disney would opt to remove a name with "Slave" in.  They changed Slave Leia to "Hutt Slayer" and banned any merchandise of her in that outfit.

They haven't changed Slave 1's name.

In my rush to post, I hadn't read Jeff's post.  My bad.

Just got an e-mail from Hasbro Pulse stating these are on their way soon.

No one has renamed Slave 1.  If you think that, watch the scene again.

Well, they changed the name on last year's Lego set to "Firespray" and the name of his ship in the canonical Marvel comics series is now "Firespray," so it sure feels like someone has renamed Slave I.

Speculation time...who do you think Boba Fett is going to hire?

I'm going with Mando and Bo Katan, Cad Bane and Bossk.  Really hoping Bossk shows up in the CAP-2!

I want that free shipping to justify the $50 I gave Pulse last year.  I'm going to wait it out.   

I have a couple on order at Pulse as well....I just want one in hand to put in my Tantive IV hallway.  I can add some to my Rebel Hangar table to flesh it out a bit more.

Really enjoyed this week's episode.


If you think they changed the name of Slave 1 in this episode, punch yourself in the face.

There was at least a month between my Shop Disney order arriving and when my Hasbro Pulse Stormtroopers were delivered.

As for the Rebel Fleet Trooper sets?  I preordered those on Hasbro Pulse the day they were listed.  I ordered the RFT 4-packs yesterday on Shop Disney and I got a shipping notification today.  Itís perplexing how one order is getting fulfilled immediately but I havenít gotten any indication of when the order that was placed further back will ship.

My Shop Disney order just says In Progress.

Yeah...I got to a boss fight after picking up the weapon, and kept getting killed so I took a break.

It's running fine on my X-Box One Elite, and looks great on the 75 inch tv!   ;D

Not sure Dave.  I do know that I didn't see anything that said preorder on Shop Disney and they just showed up yesterday.  With some people already getting these I'm guessing the Shop Disney ones will get here before April.

My most negative critique of the episode was the slow sped chase through Mos Espa.  That should've been shot to look a lot faster.

I wasn't a big fan of the swoop gang's space vespas..but George Lucas was a big fan of classic cars and I can see Favreau and Rodriguez trying to pay homage to that.

Loved the Black Krrsantan/Boba Fett fight...I have a feeling we have not seen the last of him.

The Tusken Flashback was very moving...I have a feeling we are going to see the employment of some violence in the next flashback.

Seeing the Pykes emerge as the main antagonists is an interesting twist.  I'm expecting the big banquet scene next week as Fett tries to consolidate the factions behind him and organize them against the Pykes.

Not my favorite episode but it wasn't the worst thing I've seen.
