TV-9D9 / Re: Kenobi (Disney+) - (SPOILERS possible)
« on: June 24, 2022, 09:59 AM »
Overall, I liked the Kenobi show.  I'd give it an A but I know I'm a soft grader for new Star Wars shows.


We should also all know that's how SW fans determine what's good and what sucks. Whether it fits our expectations.

Pretty much.  I had really mixed feelings when this show was announced.  I really wanted to see more Ewan Kenobi, but my 'head canon' was that Obi-Wan was just hiding on Tatooine, watching over Luke...

I'm kinda torn on Kenobi.  On one hand, I'd like to see Ewan reprise the role for a new movie about old Ben...  but on the other hand, what does he do?

I've always kind of imagined he just lived out his days in the desert, studying Jedi stuff and watching over Luke.  I just assumed he never really did much because why would he?

In the end, I'm glad they went the direction they did.  I'd give the Reva/Inquisitor stuff a B, but the Obi-Wan/Anakin stuff was A+++ for me.  Like Dave said, I wish there had been a bit more talk between them but it really helped frame up the final rematch in ANH as well as putting a new spin on a few other things - Obi-Wan didn't lie to Luke, he was just repeating what Vader himself said about who killed Luke's father. :P


- I had a flashback to The Last Jedi and am a little bugged by the Star Destroyer vs. transport battle.  The Star Destroyer managed to track down, disable, and capture the Tantavie IV without much trouble but couldn't do that with a transport?

I'm ok with that because I thought Tantive was disabled in some way - doesn't C-3PO say something about the main reactor being shut-down?

However, am I correct in noticing that the HasLab Saber has a full ring around the holt like most Inquisitor sabers do, even though every time I noticed Reva's Saber in the show it only had a half-circle guard? Is this thing screen accurate?

The Haslab is designed to go either way (full ring/half ring) so people can buy it and use it as Reva's or one of the other Inquisitors depending on their cosplay choice.  Not sure why they decided to market it as "Reva's Saber" instead of just "Imperial Inquisitor Lightsaber", but the intention is you can use it for whichever one you want - from the Haslab description:

"Unique form factor: This lightsaber features both half- and full-circle configuration—complete with lights and sound effects—based on the Inquisitors’ iconic lightsabers featured in the live-action Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi streaming on Disney+"

HasLab Force FX Elite Reva Lightsaber:
5/27 - 439
5/29 - 730
6/3 - 957
6/13 - 1034
6/23 - 1103

18+ days left... 

1,096 backers as of 6/20.

The epic finale of OWK was apparently worth... 7 backers?  Again, I know these things crater in the middle and surge at the end, but this is gonna need a heck of a surge to make it to production.

I was able to grab an extra of Nevarro Cantina and Tantive Hallway for $32 each.  I don't really need more of those but at that price, I couldn't resist.

Pulse must have gotten a TON of orders from that sale because it's 8 days later and my stuff still hasn't shipped...

Got an email from Pulse last night.  "Due to the overwhelming success of Pulse Power Days Sales Event, shipping may be delayed."  Well, it's been two weeks and the stuff hasn't shipped yet so no ****, Sherlock.  ::)
