Funny Walrus Man on Missing in Action   ;)
they need to include Hammer head, greedo (vintage versions too)

This chapter explores poverty, as they tried to depict an undevelopped planet.

Coackroaches, flies, trash gave the ambience of crisis to that galaxy far away,
and so it brought the internal crisis of Gregor...
He wanted a new life (a dream)
It is a blink to "Complaint of the Homeless" by Allen Ginsberg.

The Vietnam vet who returns America to wipe cars´ windshields.

Action on season 5 is slowering down

the episode 10 was clumsy
frog colonel almost disgusting

children aimed, cause movement seemed a mario bross arcade
action always in haste, without letting appreciate combat.

Hondo vs Grievous

Hondo is a more complex character than Grievous, whose lines are the plainest of the galaxy far far away.

Grievous is always depicted overacted, and with an uncontrolled fury in almost silent videos.

General Grievous is the representation of violence without intelligence. Filoni needs urgently to make him kinda
a Bane from DC Batman, that is a subtle villain.

Today the cyborg and Ashoka watered down in their fight, specially the padawan who looked weary.

Returning to Hondo, he is better balanced, seems inspired in Sir John Falstaff from Shakespeare plays;
sometimes funny with wit, others with the lust of flirting. His new attire and wardrobe let him get that evolution.

Filoni should drive more attention on Hondo, and why not? profit from his lizard monkey too. So Filoni, give the pet a name, search a Greek, macedonian, arabic name which fits the series.

About weequays

complex drawing, two colour faces with cartilage and flesh, muscular pirate was like Pote Snitkin.

Hey guys, what about Mara Jade character?

Do you think Shanon Mc Randle needs to appear on episode VII?

Today I finished "About the Sublime" by Casio Longinus
an aesthetian whose book continues in certain way
"Ars Poetica" by Quinto Horatius Flacus.

Longinus is strongly inspired by Demostenes and Plato.

This was an episode more for kids, the fight of Ashoka and Hondo was naif: too many jumps and very few techniques.

The engenneer professor droid looked curious, a brand new animation, that could have a reminicense to Dexter´s bar on Coruscant.

But deep inside the naivité of the episode is a bit of darkness when the human youngling killed one weequay by short circuit of the light saber.

The robot told it was due the circumstances, but at last, even younglings could be forced to kill.

I think as animation got haste at the end of the episode, to end a fight or close the emission, the pirates were bouncing on the walls, the corridors like puppets or plastiline figures who never arrived to break apart.

This need revision, 3d animation is not perfect yet, better they simplify some scenes, instead of lots of marionettes they couldn´t handle properly.

Casting the original actors Mark, Carrie and Harrison would be a nice hommage to us the original SW generation of fans.
We the X Generation deserve that

I am just watching "Tipping points"

What I can first comment is that

I liked the pterodactils, flying saurious....
they are beasts more colored than ever
but their wings look a cross between buterflies' and bats.

The paintjob on body and wings gave those dragons distinction.

The huge burden saurious in the market, the one which crashes two battle droids
is like a large dewback, nice try this time on purple.

The rest is kinda cartoon style, lots of details are improving now
but designers must focus on the heads of humans to insuflate
more realism. Some angles of Steela head are chooked.

I agree Onderon episode was slow, however it recreated some feautures of the rebellion

-Emphasis on women leadership
-Commandos and soldiers on camping with less access to facilities like complex bases or stations.
-Guerrilla aspect of rebel teams.
-Training could show basic teachings (where to hit and why, how to hold detonator, etc.)
-The word and concept rebellion is floating in the galaxy far far away, while the republic is busy fighting separatists.

Some novelties:

Savage Opress can kill with his horns, like a bull from Corrida (bullfighting)

The animated debut of Blue snaggletooh, path the way for the CW action figure.

The horned sith don´t have a defense or block against low side kick  :D  (kansetsu-geri),

so Obi Wan could target their knee caps. Wish Kenobi shares his strategy with Anakin before they
will face duo versus duo.

Revival had good argument

They have finally ended the cliché of siths defeating Jedi

I am not sure the killed girl is Adi Gallia (she deads in ROTS)

In the ending of cw season 4, was tiring how the two brothers Maul and Savage surprised Kenobi
it could be justified only for seeing Maul in his cyborg likeness, which more power updated by his bionic parts.

And now Kenobi has brought relief to the light side.... Yes those sith guys deserved that beating!!  ;)

Obi Wan is more powerful than Maul, however he calls Savage his apprentice

I think he only poses difficulty to Kenobi because as enemies they both know the other´s tactics well.

I agree Yavin Luke uses tac sculpt, but seems the arms are retooled and almost long like in dagobah landing vc 44.
This new head should be used for a new xwing pilot version of Luke, replacing the pointy chin.

Mara is decent, looks young and looks like emperor´s hand version too. She has got more detail on pants and knee pads.

The a wing pilot is likely army builder.

Rex is between cartoon and realistic style.

Bespin Vader is a concept lef in oblivion since 1999.
