Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Episode 4 (or chapter 12) might be my favourite of the season so far. Works as a stand alone episode but also now starts to tie in to the larger plot. Pretty damn great. Quite a few call backs etc, just the right mix of old and new.

I think we can see we're this is all headed now... should be good.

I met them at celebration in London a few years ago, seemed nice enough, mostly talked about old Palitoy stuff.

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Great ending to the series, great set up for season two. It was... great! As far as the films, just because this series works it's no guarantee that Faverau would do the same with the films. He said in an interview that with Star Wars he wanted to tell a smaller story like ANH and tv is perfect for ...

Re: SPOILERS THREAD-The Rise of Skywalker-SPOILERS THREAD

Just got back from the cinema. I enjoyed a lot of it, but towards the end I kind of zoned out. Bar a few dodgy scenes everything up until Rey heads of to Ach Too (or what ever it's called) was pretty good. Her wanting to hide away from the Force because she's a Palpatine makes sense but was way too ...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Amazing episode again! The Imperial Troop Transporter making an appearance was the icing on the cake. As for the final episode I don't think the Mandalorians will make another appearance as they've had to move their base. Pretty sure we will see IG-11 as why else did they have a long flashback to hi...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Another great episode, one of the best for me. I liked the casting, the different aliens making up the crew. I also thought it was one of the funniest. Bill Burr nailed it. The Droid Zero (?) looked like the prototype Death Star Droid by Kenner. Also, the survalence robots in the republic ship looke...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

It is ignoring or rewriting of established canon that is one of the (out of a very, VERY great many) reasons why I detest TLJ so much. It rewrote the rules on hyperspace tracking, travel and weaponry in such a ridiculous, needless and stupid way, which was utterly at odds with everything we already...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

To me it's weird that there have been a lot of negative reviews of this episode, especially after last weeks effort which was full of ham fisted writing. Lots of youtubers don't seem to know what a character arc is, or they think a couple of lines of 6th form dialogue are more important that actuall...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Episode 5 was great! Mando on a Dewback, so good. They even copied that famous shot of a Stormtrooper on Dewback that wasn't in the film. Amazing. A proper bounty hunting episode as well. So many callbacks to the OT that it felt a bit like a fan film, but who cares, it was great to be back on Tatooi...

Re: I have a confession

Considering Lucas wasted the first two movies not actually showing how Anakin becomes Vader this was supposed to be the one. It's laughably bad. Good god, I think it might be the worst of the PT. The damn acting, the nonsense script, what the hell happened. Tried watching a fan edit of all the prequ...

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

I also agree. Poorest episode so far, and it was no surprise to see it was directed by Bryce Dallas Howard. Heavy handed and too cutesy, and as much as I'm a fan of baby Yoda it was beginning to grate this episode. A retelling of the Seven Samurai is fair enough, but condensing it down to just over ...

Re: star wars arcade 1up

I emailed Smyths toys and they "currently have no information" on it. I guess it will come over eventually.
I'd love to get one, I think the 3 games are just about enough. I think the laserdisc Firefox game had a similar yoke so maybe they can be modded somehow.

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Fantastic second episode, even better than the first because I love those little Jawas. In fact the only thing wrong was the colour of their eyes. Why red and not yellow? Anyhow, finding his ship had been scavenged by Jawas was exactly right. Of course it's going to be scavenged by Jawas, it's what ...

Can anybody PM me a link to the first and second episodes please, not very clued up on how to find these sites :D

I would really appreciate this also.

Re: !!SPOILERS!! The Mandalorian Spoilers Allowed Discussion Thread

Thought it was great. Low key opening (though I did think that blue alien at the start was straight out if Seinfeld) in fact I think that was the only bad thing about the episode. I really hope we get more IG-11 as I always wanted to see how one of those things moved around. Shadows of the Empire wa...
