I don't normally post criticisms of sellers on an open forum, but I had a very poor experience with 3D Dream Models - had a model that turned up so badly cured that liquid was literally dripping out of the parcel when I opened it. When I went back to him, his attitude was pretty poor as well, although he did eventually send a replacement. The other thing to consider with that particular eBayer is that he leaves all of the supports on the model, which can be quite onerous if you are talking about multiple or larger models.

Thanks for the heads up.

So many possibilities, which is why I'm enjoying the series...the Filoni-verse is unpredictable  :D

What about The Whills? Could be them?

George Lucas said that, had he held onto Lucasfilm Ltd, his sequel trilogy would have featured the microbiotic world of the Whills. Given how close Lucas and Filoni are...

The creator laid back and thought it is good as it is.

The last couple of days I've been re-watching the series so far. Here's a few thoughts before the next episode tomorrow...
  • It still feels a bit jarring that Sabine was taken on as a padawan given her very limited connection to the force; all it needed was a line or two from Ahsoka saying that she saw something in her or she felt the force drawing them together.
  • After the last episode I find Baylan & Hatti more compelling than Ahsoka & Sabine.
  • Ray's performance as Baylan is cracking. He feels so solid as he stomps forward lightsabre swinging.
  • I've watched Rebels so know Thrawn from that, but I'm much more interested in finding out what Baylan is after, rather than Thrawn. Thrawn's alliance with the witches has an air of desperation and in some ways reminds me of the Dalek Emperor from the Christopher Eccleston Dr Who.
  • It feels a shame that after the fall of the Empire, what little we've glimpsed of the New Republic seems to be suffering from the same problems as the Old Republic.

So much to like in Episode 7...

Look out for the baby purgils in the bone yard (19 mins 28 seconds in) while Ashoka is hiding from the fighters.

The Night troopers appear to still be human/alive ... they move well and sound human "go go go" and don't go up in a puff of green smoke when hit, so maybe the red fabric is a charm against some other form of magic/evil?

Great to see Thrawn's troops moving in a more tactical way, using cover (not that it did them much good) even with a drone overhead.

yup just watched ep7 and enjoyed the watch.  It had a SW feel to the way it was paced.  I thought the bloke portraying Ezra has done a good job sounds alot like him. And the errr blokess playing Sabine looked good in the combat scenes.

I'm still struggling with some of the acting it really distracts me ha ha.  Why can't hera move her arms (or face) when she acts?  Anyhoo it's nicely made looking forward to the next ep

I'm really enjoying it, but Sabine Wren bugs me, she's not the same responsible calculating character, not the bad ass she was in Rebels, she's a fuck up.

Additionally, If the Night sister mothers are capable of sensing the approach of Ahsoka, why the hell could they not locate Ezra?

Ezra needs to get his thumb out of his arse and start using his sabre again.

Finally, I'm still looking forward to an explanation of how Ezra managed to get away from Thrawn and his troops when they first arrived.

But, all in all it's good fun.

Enjoyed episode 7.

Great to see C3PO and the Anakin hologram. Loved the musical touch when C3PO turned up and Choppers reaction to the droid comment.

Loved Ezra saying, nah, I donít need a lightsaber and just using the Force.

Also liked the opening mine sequence and glad the whales got away!

Having seen the Imperial troopships, I may have to pick up one of the Legion ones.

That was a fun 45 mins. Including all the usual SW favourites, lightsabres, blasters, ships, droids, cute critters and a few laughs.

Canít believe itís almost over. :'(

Having seen the Imperial troopships, I'm sure that you need at least two...plus a couple more for the New Republic

Been watching episode 7 again and something has occurred...for all Thrawn's tactical acumen he seems almost arrogant. Given that his defeat led to his exile via the purrgil you would have thought he'd be a bit more humble.

Perhaps he attributed his defeat to his limited experience of the Force but now, with his alliance with the Great Mothers, he has force wielders of his own and so feels like he's ready to take on the galaxy...

I do get witches of MacBeth vibes with the Great Mothers...I can easily see them turning on him so I wonder if they'll become more of a threat than he will. Also, in Rebels Bendu predicted Thrawn's defeat but maybe that wasn't actually referring to the purrgil... rather to something yet to come, after all it did say many arms in a cold embrace. So, maybe he'll fall like Macbeth when Birnam Wood marches on him.

I've finally gotten round to seeing the first 7 episodes and its great.

I think everyone but Hera are great, I cant put my finger on it but it doesnt feel like the Hera from Rebels.

I wish Disney would just come clean and retcon the efficiency of order 66 and the purge as being imperial propaganda, at this point there's there are a lot of surviving Jedi:
Reva and 2 guys from the Obi Wan series plus Obi Wan himself, Ahsoka, Kanan, 2 jedis from the Fallen Order games, Baylan Skoll, the Grand Inquisitor was a former Jedi and an there might have been more former jedi turned inquisitor, and Yoda.

Thats at least 11 jedi in the canon (and that just the ones I can remember) who survived order 66. I'm not complaining, just saying that maybe the clones and inquisitors werent as efficient as the Emperor thought.

I am really enjoying it :D

One problem I have with Thrawn is that I keep hearing Michael Caine when he talks, and I find myself subconsciously adding "not a lot of people know that" after every sentence  ;D

Brilliant!

In my head Thrawn looks and sounds like Basil Rathbone!
