He could show up in DOTJ!!!
I've not been a big fan of the last two arcs. They were fine stories, but I didn't feel they needed 4 eps to do it--especially Onderon. Yeesh. I'm ready to get to, you know, clones. In a war. Hence, Clone Wars.
droid's generations might not be 25 years if the species that build him is shortlived
I finally figured out why Hondo has been growing on me: he's the closest we'll ever come to seeing Booster Terrik onscreen.
Only Booster got to punch a Bothan. If Hondo tried to punch a Bothan, he'd be swinging at air.
There's a couple references in the episode to Grievous's forces dismantling their ships. The ones we saw later must either have been rebuilt or were from resources of Hondo's that weren't on Florrum.
That was the only thing that REALLY bothered me when I saw the movie at C6. That's way too old for a single droid to have been around. I could buy him being a droid from the Bane era, if he was well upgraded/maintained over the centuries (as he obviously has been)- or even KOTOR era (ala HK droids). But to be a proto-Republic-era droid on par with (or superior in capabilities to) modern droids is a bit too much (especially compared to other droids of the ancient era, like Xim's war droids).
My best theory is that the droid's memory banks/personality profile has been passed down, upgrade to upgrade, model to model. But the hardware that access them is replaced.
Remind me why this show is called the Clone Wars?
Reused CGI models that look like Clones of each other.
So 10-NT could be from Dawn of the Jedi era? That actually helps my theory that he was originally built by someone from the Sith species, hence his look. But now way he's in his original body.
Am so glad that Grievous is actually fighting and not running away now. ANDH HE IS USING HIS LEGS
Or if it was Hutts then he could be older than the universe itself.
Maybe he even created the universe. Think about that.
guess you found THE MAKER he not only makes Younglings into Jedi.. he and his wife, the Mother Machine do quite some more
Heh, I keep chuckling everytime someone calls the professor 10-NT. They should really make that his original designation before adopting a name
As for the episode, it was ok though I didn't like it as much as the first two episodes of the arc. Hondo was nice but it didn't thrill me as much. But anyway, I did fear a few times though that Grevious would be defeated by the younglings and glad they didnt go down that route... Grevious hit an all time low when Gungans beat him up and detained him. He didn't need younglings defeating him as well....
" (especially compared to other droids of the ancient era, like Xim's war droids)."
Didn't they wake up in one of the Daley books or something?
Didn't the Ancient Jedii have droids still active around the TOR era?
Yeah - I imagine Hondo's other ships were out pirating at the moment.
Anyway, I wasn't really bothered by Hondo's behavior - I always thought he had a sense of honor. A strange one, but one none the less. If anything, I thought he was a bit too vindictive last episode for someone who consistently does not take anything personally.
Maybe he is a Rataka droid? Those are capable of self-maintenance that allows them be active for absurd lengths of time (in one of the Clone Wars comics there were active Rataka droids defending a temple on Honoghr) and are generally on par with modern SW technology. Might even explain his knowledge of the force, since their technology is force based.
Presumably he was reprogrammed at some point to not be a vicious jerk.
Felt that overall this arc was fantastic, there was a few minor issues I had but nothing that spoiled it overall for me. I particularly enjoyed Hondo in this arc and his interaction with the Adi clone. I do wish it had been someone other than Tano that had been guiding them in building their lightsabers though.
Guess he knows HK-47.. I hope he was a HK unit once
Tennantbot truly is like the Doctor... changing with every regeneration into a new droid body
Or maybe one thousand generations was just an exaggeration.
Sweet episode. Great story arc.
Yeah, like Xim's Warbots... Oh, wait.
Did Xim's warbots build lightsabers for little padawans? I think I missed that chapter from Lost Legacy.
Anyway, considering the ridiculous way dating is done, I'm expecting upcoming sources to mention Hyuang helped his first padawan exactly on 25,020 BBY.
There are Sentry droids you fight in TOR that date around the Force Wars on Tython. It doesn't strain that much credulity that maybe some of them ended up lasting to the Clone Wars
Sure, it can be, I'm just sick of every single statement, aside or factoid mentioned by every single character being THE COMPLETELY ACCURATE TRUTH. That does strain credibility.
Eh doesn't bother me. I like no prizes
I looked in the Essential Atlas and Ilum and Florum are literally on the other side of the galaxy from each other. What the heck were they doing in that sector? The show makes it seem like they hoped in the ship and went right to saber building. Makes you wonder why they didn't orbit Ilum or head back to the Temple for that.
