Welcome to the Star Wars General.
Remember not to engage with assholes telling you you're wrong for liking what you like.
If you respond to obvious trolls, you have failed the rest of us.
Hey, SDCC exclusive Exogorth Escape Han Solo!

Oh cool, something that should've gone to retail and not an exclusive.

Oh but we gotta fill the stores up with shitty repainted Disney garbage. Here's hoping we get a Rose with a random bade next! Thanks Disney!

Also there is zero reason those accessories shouldn't come with the retail Han. This line is fucking everything up as hard as it can.

I bet when this was planned they thought they were in good and Solo was a HUGE MONEYMAKING HIT. You know, instead of the franchise ruining shitheap it turned out to be.

You just know they thought the Solo figures were selling out and people were clamoring for more and more Star Wars.

Oh how history makes fools of Hasbro. Maybe they will get away from Disney in 2020...

>>6994965
>>6994969
I don't think many people really want a mynock so just him and his blaster would be fine. Does it also come with the hydro-spaner or whatever from right before they hit an asteroid? That's kinda cool, actually.

But still, Han will be retail without the extras/packaging at some point and if you really want a mynock just get a pterodactyl and glue an asshole onto it's face and bam! I'm glad we're finally getting Han's best look!
>>
>>6994957

This figure is getting a regular retail release, in a standard box, probably without the mynock, breather, or the flashlight(?).

It's a huge city, I would assume Lando can't just dictate random things like this.
But why did Lando make her the Falcons computer core and then just gave her away with the Falcon to Han? It's not like the Falcon didn't work without her. It's not like Han wouldn't allow him to transfer her. Like you said, they didn't care about the actual characters. They are just lucky that they have two or three autists in their writing room like Pablo who come up with connections from throwaway lines like 3PO getting cursed out by the Falcons computer.

Habsro could get away with re-imaginations, rereleases, repaints, retools or 6" black series remakes till the end of time if they weren't retarded. It would be so easy to just make fun, diverse battle packs. You could even make a separate Legends line with nothing but EU figures. Reprints of old EU stuff are still among the best selling star wars books and comics, so why wouldn't toys be the same?

pic related; I might be a minority here, but I always preferred the slimmer Battlefront 2004 dark trooper over the robotic Dark Forces variant.
>>
>>6995280
Well he does work as an enforcer over child slaves and his staff is carved to have images of screaming children all over it as I learned in the visual dictionary for the movie, so the name kinda fits the character.

>but I always preferred the slimmer Battlefront 2004 dark trooper over the robotic Dark Forces variant.
I agree and I'm a major Dark forces fan.

Maybe it's because of the shitty image quality.
It's weird because Tarkin looks amazing. Perhaps it will look nicer in person.


Why didn't they include Hoth Leia in the Mynock set? She is in the wave after Bespin Han.

>>6995487
Hasbro is retarded sometimes. Generic Imperial officers would sell well- I want the ones in black.


Veers pre orders are up in the UK, data I've seen is next week! Can't wait to put one up leading my hoth forces!

Soon Hoth Leia and Bespin Han will join the diorama in opposition to them.

I'll have to track down Hoth Luke.

I think it's just another outlet of frustration, sure humans are a stable THE stable of the franchise but aliens could be main characters.

There's a new Yoda coming according to "rumours" ie 99%.
It's weird how the aliens always come out better than the human figures.

I always like the variety in Delta's, but there's no other images for Omega besides that Fi from the evolutions set and the all black from the EE set.

Omega were all equipped with matte black iirc for most of the series. I don't think they had any other markings except perhaps those dots on their chest plate like they do on the hasbro figures. They did have regular armor and paint jobs for a while (Pic related, the one with the blue markings would be Niner. I can't identify the rest of the commandos.) I guess Fi would be the same one that comes in the "clone commandos legacy collection evolutions battlepack" like you said (although I haven't seen any official artwork that depicts him with this look). In some pictures they're painted in all white/silver. I think the best option would be to just paint them in matte black so they look recognizable or alternatively, maybe paint them in metallic white and turn them into anonymous commandos instead.

In the first novel Omega Squad wore plain white/light grey armour. The same as the unpainted parts of Delta. Darman comments about its colour providing really poor camouflage for the environment he's working in.

Then they get supplied the Matte black armour in the second book, used for a mission in a snow covered region.

Watched a camrip of Solo last night...what a garbage heap that movie is. Nothing in it matters, none of it really makes sense due to some really shit editing. I cannot believe they're going to waste plastic on Val and even fucking Woody. These are the most useless, do nothing, characters yet.

At least if they made Rio he's an interesting alien design, but holy fuck, why on literally anything else?

It really is baffling why they wouldn't make Rio in the first wave, agreed. But yeah, the movie sucks ass. I'm dumbfounded how many people still suck its dick just because it's Star Wars or they think "it's fun." It sure isn't doing any favors to retail.

The movie bombing might be a saving grace. It's turning enough fans away finally that things could get better.

I read that book. It was pretty shit, but it was based off of unaired TCW episodes so I was curious. For some reason however, we got lucky and it never became part of the EU, unlike Darth Maul: Sons of Dathomir, which is canonical to not only legends/eu, but to nu-canon as well--and is also based off of unaired TCW episodes.
>>
>>6997086

Ya, I didn't bother reading it myself. I got the story spoiled and was pretty meh about what I heard happened.

I think Asajj Ventress fans are just meant to suffer.

I think it's possible one day we will get a figure for her, but it's going to be a long ways off.
>>
>>6997081
this pile of shit only exists because of a plot hole in the prequels, never forget that.

Does no good to critique it though, you just get lumped in with the /pol/ trash who scream "I hate women and this is a bean meme movie" so why bother? I know Disney is capable of more mature writing, they made

>Darkwing Duck
>WITCH
>PotC

They know how, they just didn't want to because SW fans are regarded as loyal nerds that eat up anything, what with the prequels being mostly bad, so they phone it in with some feminazi pandering in the mix.

>>
>>6997132
That isn't a plot hole. Han just never saw a Jedi. He can hear things but he was a "see it dont just believe it" guy. And by the time he was old enough, there just about zero Jedi around.
>>
>>6997134
it absolutely was a plot hole, one of many Lucas managed to include because he didn't even watch his own movies before he wrote those pieces of shit. Disney had to retcon and excuse really hard to get it to make sens when ti shouldn't have been an issue to begin with if this moron knew what he was doing.

revisionist history, everyone. Pretend Lucas was flawless. He's fit, at most, to write for Bioware games.

That's how I worked it out too. If you take the other anon at face value, the existence of Obi Wan and Vader, in the opening quarter of ANH no less, blows that "long past myth" right out of the water. I don't know where anybody gets the idea that Han was that much older than Luke either. Maybe 30 to Luke's early 20s? That means order 66 happened when he was like 5. I wasn't much older when the Berlin Wall fell, or the S&L crash, and neither meant anything to me at the time.

If only 10,000 of them existed and you'd never personally seen one, maybe. But the issue was never whether Han believed Jedi existed, it was whether he believed the Force was real.

To be fair that critter (which I never knew was called a Mynock before this thread at all. Never bothered looking up every single creature name in star wars) is more interesting and had more screen focus then the snake that Yoda came with.

Of course the snake is a bare mininum amount of plastic so there is that. But still kinda odd they would make a random snake as an accessory rather then something the characters have to fight off.

But at the end of the day, I don't really care one way or the other if this thing was added to the black series. Still waiting on a much better Tauntaun offering for the black series.

oldfag here, grew up with the original trilogy and read Starlog magazine, which was pretty much the best source of SW news before the internets.

Lucas said 9 movies in the 70s and 80s. I know this for sure. Then during the release of the prequels, he siad something along the lines of "There are only 6 movies because its all about Anakin and his kids, and nothing else". I dont know why he changed his tune on this, my guess is he wanted to make fans feel like "This is is, you better see these prequel movies because there is no more SW movies after this, so see them."

Lucas seemed like he meant it too, because he would say in interviews around 2005 when ROTS came out "Making episodes 7-9 would take up another 10 years of my life and I am too old to sacrifice that much time, I want to use that time to raise my family and do other projects I wanted to do when i was younger that were put on hold because of SW"

Thought about doing a custom. First Order body + OT trooper head would be okay
>>
>>6998770
His original reason for changing it from 9 to 6 was apparently just burnout. By the time he did ROTJ he was exhausted (and his personal life wasn't doing too well either) which is why he decided to wrap everything up in Episode 6, including changing the lingering "other Skywalker" plot point to be Leia rather than an actual new Skywalker he had intended to explore in the later movies.

Honestly I think the saga works fine just being six movies, and even if Lucas had stuck around I get the feeling that the sequel trilogy would be a bit better bit would still feel out of place.

Has it really been 13 years since the last Dooku figure??
>>
>>6998798
The last brand new one, yeah. He got a regular ROTS release and the Evolutions set sculpt both in 2005. The Evo set version got a new head for the Target 2-packs in like 2009/10 but 2005 was the last time Dooku had a new figure, not counting TCW.

I really hope that if he gets a TVC release it's a new sculpt or at least has some significant new elements but I'm realistic and I assume we're just going to get that Target version again if we get it at all.

I dunno man, of all the S O Y wars walkers this one is at least not just an old design with a shittier head and armor plates added. Unlike the meme google sand crab crawler it actually looks like it belongs to Star Wars though rather a Dark Horse comic, only used in the background of one or two panels. I for one liked the Dark Horse school of design but I kinda expect more from movie concept artists or rather 4 fucking movies.

I could live with shitty stories but more vehicle and character designs to choose from to incorporate in a headcanon but the amount of shit they churn out alongside a tiny amount of "just ok" designs is what enrages me the most about the current canon.

The best part is that some of them are clearly too young to have actually been there during X's heyday. For example the guy extolling the virtues of Aurra Sing and how Solo ruined her apparently doesn't remember being outraged by TCW removing her Force abilities and indirectly invalidating her Dark Horse backstory.

Also seeing a lot of "nobody ever complained about anything before Disney, everyone loved everything, Disney ruined it and if you claim someone bitched about anything before Disney you are lying!"

Yeah, say what you will about Lucas but he had a very good eye for designs and knew exactly how to get great shit out of his concept artists and costume designers. What I've noticed is that there's a lot of attempts at mimicking classic design sensibilities without actually understanding why they work, so we end up with this bland ships and locations that do look like they fit into the Star Wars universe but completely fail to stand out, and very few attempts to making anything really striking.

Take something like the ski speeder from TLJ, I could easily buy something like that existing as a background piece in another movie, like seeing it zip by in the background in Mos Espa or something. But as an actual centerpiece it's boring as fuck.

Uhh, I remember. And I wasn't a fan of TCW initially for a multitude of reasons. I've since then learned to let go and have come to enjoy many aspects of it. It's still classic star wars despite not always meshing that well with the old Clone Wars multimedia project. (for example, the Aurra Sing issue, barriss offee, the mandalorians etc) I mean for what it's worth, Aurra Sing to me is still an ex-padawan and Mandalore has two capitals. Stuff like Dark Horse Republic, and Republic Commando is all canon as far as I'm concerned. I like my clone wars timeline nice and big. And you have to remember, TCW is still a Lucas project through and through, unlike Disney's efforts. It's not like you can point your finger at it and say, "that's fake". (except when you're blaming Filoni)

Sometimes you take things for granted and you don't realize how good you have it, so you need to see something really awful to snap you back into reality. That's what happened to me when comparing Rebels with TCW. And everytime something cool actually happened in Rebels (not often), I had to remind myself that it takes place in the same canon as TFA. I suppose if you judge Rebels on its own merits, there are some fun ideas in there, but it's all very few and far between

>Also seeing a lot of "nobody ever complained about anything before Disney, everyone loved everything, Disney ruined it and if you claim someone bitched about anything before Disney you are lying!"
I'm not seeing any of this. Sure, Disney gets a lot of shit and deserves every bit of it, but like I'm sure you remember, recent projects like TCW, The Force Unleashed, The Old Republic all got their fair share of shit as well from EU fans and confused shitposters (anakin has a padawn? wtf? dude TORtanic amirite?)
>>
>>6995375
Eh. I mean I don't hate it like some people but I do think it was very half-baked.

Luke's resistance to training Rey was fine. Luke dying with that force projection trick was fine. The back and forth with Rey and Kylo was fine. Killing Snoke even makes sense, as an effort to make Rey join forces with Kylo.

The side plot with finding the codebreaker was OK...until that crap about releasing the racing animals happened. Like if they just found DJ, fucked up, and were betrayed, it would've been OK.

The chase in space that ended up with Holdo's suicide was OK...except, A) they should've cranked down the feminism and just made her an uniformed admiral that was a jerk for more military reasons and B) they needed to think through that "we're outrunning the imperial fleet but somehow Finn/Rose are going to leave and, somehow, catch back up" logic hole.

Super Leia was just stupid FX wankery. Should've had her use her force power to NOT GET SUCKED OUT and then pass out from the exertion once the shields kicked in and repair crews could run in and get her. Then she could be in a coma or whatever, no change in that part of the story.

Most of Rose's scenes were bullshit. The thread of her sister dying to save the fleet from disaster is a good one but they really waste it because Rose is so awful.

I know it'll never happen but I wonder if a Director's Cut (with a different director obviously) could save it.

I'm sure they are knockoffs but I've never seen anyone mention them much less review them so at this point it's probably a crapshoot.

Though for reference, there are some knockoffs that come out of China that are pretty close to the real thing. A lot of their Marvel Legends knockoffs for example can easily pass for authentic and you'd probably never realize it's a fake unless you knew what to look for.
>>
>>6999541
Yeah, you have what, the Kylo-style saber on Malachor and hearing a few echoing voice clips of Kylo and Rey in the void? That's kind of it. You can safely treat Rebels as taking place in a different continuity than TFA.

speaking of rebels, the budget for that show was PATHETIC. They couldn't even render Sundari Mandalore in the opener of s4 so they had to write their action sequence to take place in a starship hangar right next to it. I mean I'm sure they did the best they could with the money they had (disney money? hello?) but jesus christ you could smell the bullshit excuses from miles away sometimes. I'm still not sure what to think of the show. It's entertaining and funny (even suspensful) enough once it gets going, but also very shallow with lots of filler. Any attempt at gravitas often gets lost in translation thanks to the cartoony vibe and because of this it definitely doesn't win over any EU fans familar with stories from that period. If you look at it in a vacuum or maybe as a tcw-only fan, I guess it's a fun enough distraction. The most fun I had with it was really during the second half of season 2 and 3 and the entirety of season 4. Really wasn't a fan of the old clone troopers getting fat and I fucking despised the tcw nostalgia episode with the B1s. Sabine was utterly unconvincing too. I'm supposed to believe a teenage girl graffiti artist is also an expert weapons scientist that built an arc projector that destroys beskar'gam? lol. Yeah right. Pic related was unironically a funny character though.

I am however deeply pissed off we will never get the real 7-9.

Yeah, the whole thing we just learned about Lucas's idea for the Whills sounds like it would've been a lightning rod for the people who are to this day still throwing a bitchfit about midi-chlorians.

Does it really matter if people were going to hate them no matter what? The shill mainstream media is pretty much programmed to hate Lucas.

>>

>All I care about is that it would have been a legitimate conclusion to the series.
We already got that, though. A big part of the problem is that ROTJ wrapped things up and didn't leave a whole lot of loose ends, so no matter what the sequel trilogy would've had to introduce a completely new conflict and at least partially reverse some of the victories in ROTJ just so there'd be something else to wrap up. It's a no-win scenario. The depressing part is that going by what we know about the Arndt script Lucas was already planning on having Empire 2.0 and Jedi Wiped Out Again as plot points for 7.

You'd think so but the very Lucas-driven TCW was decried as being an abomination that destroyed and ignored the REAL continuity for a couple of years after it came out. There were large swaths of the fandom that absolutely didn't care if Lucas was involved, to them the EU was the one TRUE and HONEST continuity and they would never accept a baby cartoon for babies.

One of the few good things about the Disney fiasco is that the people who used to shit on Lucas now defend him. Now we no longer have to hear people looking for every last excuse to bitch about him and post links to RLM's reviews every time someone mentions anything even remotely positive about the prequels. Now we just have to put up with people doing that with Disney.
>>
>>6999898
>Now we just have to put up with people doing that with Disney.
Yeah, this is pretty annoying. I didn't like TFA or TLJ but I liked RO and thought Solo was okay, but I'd like to be able to say I want a figure of Maul in his Solo outfit without some idiot screaming about how I'm a Disneycuck and how I'm an accomplice to them.

yeah ROTJ is "the ending" sure but you know what I meant.

>It's a no-win scenario
any scenario where authenticity isn't compromised is a win-win to me. No Lucas, no deal. The only certainty is that post-rotj eu would have taken collateral damage no matter what the outcome, but everyone knows that.

>>6999898
>There were large swaths of the fandom that absolutely didn't care if Lucas was involved, to them the EU was the one TRUE and HONEST continuity and they would never accept a baby cartoon for babies

>>
>>6999888
Yeah, any real sequel trilogy would've had to've involved the actions of Palpatine or Anakin driving the plot (even from beyond the grave) since they were the prime story engines of the first 6 movies and continuing their influence would've been one of the defining things giving the Skywalker Saga it's "shape" (aside from the continued involvement of the Skywalker family lineage)....to say nothing of how, if done correctly, a good sequel trilogy would've had to have stylistically seperate itself from the OT in much the same way the prequel trilogy did, with an entirely different justification for that conflict and a different look for its combatants other than "well, the fight in the OT just really never ended", which makes the resolution in ROTJ seem even more futile than it had to be.
>>
>>6999970
I think having Kylo as the big bad from the beginning could've worked. Have him trying to continue the legacy of Palpatine and Vader but avoiding making their mistakes, having discovered some holocron that he's using as a blueprint but also using some of his own ideas because he sees the Sith way as flawed. Rather than Empire 2.0 have his organization be an inverse of the rebellion, a small but ruthless group that is gaining ground not by fighting openly with the Republic but by using guerilla tactics. That way you at least eliminate the pointlessness of Snoke and have an enemy that's still linked to the Sith and the Empire but isn't just the same thing over again.

This is true but it doesn't change the fact that most of the shit people hate TCW for were all Lucas's ideas, especially the stuff that contradicted the EU.

Any problem with Rebels falls squarely on Filoni.
>>
>>6999986
As much as I love Adam Driver's performance as Kylo, yeah, it's fucking CRAZY that we're two films into the sequel trilogy and have had absolutely *nothing* about why Kylo turned - even if Snoke really was just some random asshole who used Palpatine & Vader's legacy to turn Ben Solo to the dark side, we absolutely need to find out how that happened beyond "Well, Ben was already cranky about being ditched by his parents and only finding out until he was, like, 20, that Darth Vader was his grandfather and that his mother was living a lie".

Under any normal circumstances - especially if the Star Wars franchise was in the hands of any specific creative director at Disney - I'd assume that we'd at least see why Ben turned by the end of Episode IX - but Abrams is so fucking terrible at plotting and even worse at endings that I'm afraid that they're just gonna whiff on that and we're gonna close out this cinematic trilogy without ever finding out on-screen what the hell instigated the events of this trilogy in the first place.

I had hoped Johnson would've been able to take the slop that Abrams gave us and mold it into something but we all saw how that turned out, now we're left with Abrams to make sense of a mess Johnson left in an attempt to make sense of a mess Abrams left with his stupid mystery box shit.

This trilogy really needed someone to guide it, rather than just leaving everything in the hands of the next guy like some horrible game of telephone.
>>
>>7000107
Honestly as much as I hate Abrams, just having him for all three movies would've been a better idea. We'd still be stuck with bad ideas and poorly thought out mysteries but there'd at least be a sense of consistency instead of the Abrams -> Johnson -> Trevorrow chain that completely fell apart because nobody knew what the fuck they were doing and now it's back in Abrams's hands anyway.
>>
>>7000107
>>7000120
I'll always wonder how much better shape the sequel trilogy would be in if Iger hadn't been so anxious and rushed TFA (and TLJ as a result) into production way sooner than it should've been.

Even without a single creative director in charge of the franchise, TFA and TLJ would've benefitted hugely from just having an extra year for Abrams and Johnson to figure out just what in the hell they were doing exactly, rather than Abrams flying by the seat of his pants on an already-rushed schedule even before Arndt's work had to be all thrown out and Johnson inheriting that mess and then adding his own well-meaning-but-unpolished ideas to the leaning tower of mistakes the trilogy was turning into....
>>
>>7000127
Yeah, an extra year would've benefitted them, but I think even then you'd still be stuck with a mess after Abrams because the rush was only part of the problem. A lot of the big issues with TFA are things that spring up in a lot of his projects, most notably his terrible habit of coming up with mysteries but never actually considering what the solution would be and just leaving it for later (or in some cases such as Lost, leaving it for someone else to worry about).

The push to have a movie every year is also hurting them. People were worried about oversaturation when the plan was first announced and it looks like that's what's happening, a combination of weak movies and a fast-paced release schedule led to quick fatigue and now they're responsible for having the first ever Star Wars bomb.

They tried to make too much money in too short a time and it bit them in the ass. Had they paced themselves and focused on getting it right rather than going with one big nostalgia-pandering blowout and then assuming franchise momentum would carry them through with a built-in audience, they wouldn't be in this mess.

I think they saw the success of the MCU and decided that if that franchise was safe from fatigue then Star Wars would be, but didn't understand why the MCU can get away with this kind of thing while something like Star Wars is better off going at a slower and steadier pace.

Well that and Solo just being a bad idea to begin with. Even the hardcore fans couldn't get excited about it when it was announced.
>>
>>7000134
True that about Abrams always resorting to the same bag of tricks regardless of how much prep time he's given.


So, assuming they announce a creative director for the franchise as the Skywalker saga wraps up, who do they get? (All the trolls out there need to understand that this isn't the same thing as firing and replacing Kennedy - this is a step that should've been taken during the extra time that should've been allocated to the conception and writing of Episode VII in the first place, regardless of Kennedy's involvement.)
>>
>>7000142
I don't think he's perfect, but I'd choose Filoni. You'd need Kennedy to make him tone down some of his habits (such as becoming too attached to certain characters and a need to give them the spotlight), but he's the closest thing we have to a Lucas apprentice and has the best knowledge of what makes Star Wars work.
>>
>>7000140
>but didn't understand why the MCU can get away with this kind of thing while something like Star Wars is better off going at a slower and steadier pace

This is true to a certain extent, though I don't think Disney ever had any immediate plans to accelerate Star Wars to the insane 2-3-films-per-year schedule that the MCU eventually found itself on - it speaks to the paper-thin nature of the Skywalker saga films that it feels like that shit is already being scraped across too much bread even when they're scattered across 12-18 month intervals, whereas the MCU has 75 years' worth of stories to draw upon.

Which makes the lack of a creative director for the Disney Star Wars films even more perplexing since, by that series' nature, the stories for all those films HAVE to be made up almost entirely from scratch and just having Kennedy on hand to keep things running on a production perspective with the Star Wars Story Group running continuity checks without a single voice orchestrating all these voices....well, that's how you end up with a big gooey Rathtar mess of a cinematic universe that's just flying off in 18 different directions but going nowhere.
>>
>>7000144
Yeah, if LFL had to hire someone from the inside, Filoni seems like most obvious choice, since he's a walking Wookieepedia anyway AND he was already Lucas's right hand man anyway, but I also agree with him needing to be kept in check because the dude is a well-meaning goober.
>>
>>7000144
Filoni at least seems to care about Star Wars and keeping it all cohesive. He's not trying to wipe out the Prequels or anything for the sake of pleasing retarded fans.
>>
>>7000150
>Filoni seems like most obvious choice, since he's a walking Wookieepedia anyway
Hhhahahaha no. Really nothing against the guy, but like you said he's a bit of a goober. A an oddly smug goober at that. He thought Wulff Yularen was a grand admiral until a fan corrected him. There's a reason they decided to give TCW it's own sandbox in canon hierarchy; it's because they didn't have time to worry about trampling over EU stuff. Lucas picked Filoni due to his background in cartoons or whatever, not because of his poor eu knowledge. (he has only read the timothy zahn books iirc) You want an actual EU pro? Look at Luceno. To his defense I suppose it's easier for authors to carefully weave in continuity from past sources when writing a book.

Lucas picked Filoni because he had a good balance between knowing the world and having pretty good pulp storytelling instincts - that doesn’t necessarily mean Filoni knew every obscure detail of the universe cold (the whole point of the Story Group and the internal continuity database is that no one person at LFL *has* to be an ultimate expert on Star Wars lore), but Filoni still knows Star Wars better than 99% of the schmucks with any storytelling talent who might walk in from the street.

Fuck, Lucas was one of the last people to give a fuck about Star Wars lore in the first place - the dude could barely be bothered to use the made-up name that HE cooked up for the laserswords the Jedi used, for chrissakes, and he was the first person to understand that Star Wars knowledge doesn’t necessarily translate to having built-in storytelling instincts.
>>

Obviously not, I agree. My post was about feeling the need to clarify that Filoni was far from a walking wookiepedia.

not true at all. He knew the comic books, the guide books etc. A lot of the eu integration into tcw was from George.

>Sabine was utterly unconvincing too. I'm supposed to believe a teenage girl graffiti artist is also an expert weapons scientist that built an arc projector that destroys beskar'gam? lol.

Don't forget that she was also a bounty hunter for a time with her lesbo gf. All this backstory while being maybe 14-16 years old in the first episode. Being a weapons scientist with 16 is already too much for me and then that was the last thing they revealed about her character (which was also apparently planned from the beginning or at least mid season 2). That kind of retardation just taints the entire show for me. I wish I could like it, all I want is some nice cartoon to keep me hooked for a few years. I wish I could see past some of its flaws but there is not a single episode that isn't pulling off something utterly retarded shit that I would expect from something as childish as the 80s Ewoks cartoon. At least TCW kept itself rather consistent with outlier episodes like the R2+3PO and Jar Jar ones existing in their own voids thanks to the anthology format while Rebels tied something as retarded as the hyperspace whales into its fucking finale.

It was less "didn't have time to worry" and more "it doesn't matter, Lucas literally doesn't think the EU is part of the official canon and has said so numerous times."

God this reminds me of this guy i knew who would get absoloutely PISSED if you said Boba/Jango wasnt Mandalorian or Mentioned TCW

>>

not true at all. It's much more nuanced than that. For example, Lucas read the comics and incorporated ideas from them into tcw, he told timothy zahn personally to use west end game materials to use as reference for his books. He made james luceno work directly with the head of lucas licensing (who in turn was in contact with lucas) when writing Plagueis and he even told Luceno to make the character a Muun. He's involvement with the EU is about as big as his involvement with TCW. There are numerous, numerous cases like this of him being involved. TCW took precedence over the the eu in the canon hierarchy because you're not gonna worry about eu shit when one episode in your tv series costs 1mil. Lucas way of working is: make it new, make it different, so obviously an expensive passion project like TCW takes precedence here. Did you know captain rex was originally meant to be alpha-17 from the dark horse comics? Do you know why they changed it? Because they figured it would be weird to have an AAA team (anakin, ahsoka, alpha). To claim Lucas doensn't give a shit about the EU is really ignorant.

>>
>>7000939
>when writing Plagueis and he even told Luceno to make the character a Muun
Pablo actually contradicted that a while ago. Licensing showed him concept art of a Neimoidian and suggested Plagueis could look something like this. Even Pablo wasn't sure where the suggestion for a Muun came from, but confirmed it wasn't from Lucas.

>He's involvement with the EU is about as big as his involvement with TCW
No it isn't. Most of his involvement with the EU was just okaying things, which in the later years he even stopped doing and let the licensing division handle it. Generally he was only directly involved in major projects, and even then it was mostly providing suggestions during meetings and vetoing any ideas he didn't like but beyond that keeping a mostly hands-off approach (Haden Blackman also didn't understand that just having him at meetings didn't mean he considered something canon, so in interviews he'd claim The Force Unleashed had Lucas's blessing to be top-level canon when Lucas never said that), rather than actually dictating much of the story content the way he did with TCW.

>To claim Lucas doensn't give a shit about the EU is really ignorant.
I didn't say he doesn't give a shit about it, but that he doesn't see it as canon. This is something he's said more than once- he viewed Star Wars as having two separate universes, his universe (which included the films and TCW) and the universe he referred to as "licensing" (the EU). He explicitly said he doesn't consider the licensed works to be part of his canon, and even referenced specific events- Luke getting married, Clone Emperor, etc- as things that don't happen in "his" universe because that's all licensing. He valued the EU for its promotional abilities and did have aspects of it he liked (for example despite not liking the clone Emperor idea he loved Dark Empire and even handed out copies to LFL employees one Christmas) but that doesn't mean he ever considered it canon.

There's also another, similar version of this statement, but instead of referring to the "licensing" it was dubbed "our universe". aka something along the lines of: "theres 2 universes, one consists of his stuff and the other one (the eu) is something that he does not see as his, but ours, the fans). I really, really liked the wording there. It makes me feel validated.

>>

They're supposed to be working on Indy 5 but I don't think they've done anything else but Star Wars. I mean that's kind of all they can really do, unless they want to make a Willow sequel or something.
>>
>>7001031
nah i don't think so. I just find it unsettling how star wars and pixar were both ex-lucasfilm, both originally very cutting edge and underdog and now they're just anonymous slaves on the disney plantation.

I'm not sure "formerly independent companies now owned by Disney while Mickey in his sorcerer's apprentice outfit lords over them" was an intentional visual metaphor.

Then again maybe it was.

He was regretting it even before TFA was released and it's unlikely he's changed his mind. People who have spoken to him have said he's liked some of the stuff produced but he's taken a very "whatever, not my problem anymore, don't talk to me about it" stance lately. I think he'd rather just move on than dwell on it.

Is it healthy to feel relentless hate and disgust for a large corporation? I don't know what it is about Disney. For example, a company like EA does nothing for me. Sure they're greedy, they fuck up and kill franchises, but they're basically a meme. Even the mainstream media tells me it's ok to hate EA. Google? Facebook? Yeah sure I guess they're pretty bad. But something about Disney really riles me up. My hands literally start shaking when I think about it. It's just so disgusting. Being a star wars fan, it really puts me in a weird place. It feels like a punishment even though I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't hate the prequels. I liked every aspect of star wars and the eu. Yes, I wanted a microbiotic trilogy. And to just rub it in even further, the media keeps telling me I'm wrong, that everything disgusting that has happened is actually beautiful and a good thing. Why are we here? Just to suffer?

Why would he be? He got his money and gave it to charity - if he was really THAT attached to the vague ideas he had for the sequel trilogy (which pretty much seem to be only "young heroes/female protagonist/Luke in exile/midichlorians up the wazoo", he could've made it a stipulation in the sale to Disney that Kennedy (who he handpicked to run the company in his stead) would stick to those ideas, but he didn't.

I also think a lot of fans, even after so much about how these movies were written and made, still WILDLY overestimate how much any of this stuff was ever set in stone in George's mind and how much he must be as riled up as the fans about how Disney's slate of films has turned out.
>>

>he could've made it a stipulation in the sale to Disney that Kennedy (who he handpicked to run the company in his stead) would stick to those ideas, but he didn't.
Going by what Lucas has said on the subject it sounded like he didn't think he needed to.
>>
>>7001190
From what I've read, Disney sticking to Lucas's notes for the sequel trilogy *was* a huge sticking point for the sale, and one that Lucas obviously caved in on. He has a right to be disappointed that Kennedy & co. ultimately didn't use them, but he shouldn't be surprised, especially since he went out of his way to lock down participation deals for the OT cast knowing that Disney would want to cash in on OT nostalgia rather than midichlorians and whatnot.
