Well, yes. But I thought that was obvious enough that it didn't need to be mentioned.
Well, they've proven they're not the best with colors (blaster fire color changing depending on who's holding the weapon), and I remember learning colors before counting in pre school
I'll have to see the episode to give a real opinion, but I find the notion of a droid of all things being the first trainer of all Jedi a little... odd (yeah, that word will do for now). I suppose it would be fully capable of teaching Jedi younglings the basics (holding the lightsaber, beginning stances, basic slashing and parrying techniques), but I would think a Jedi would begin learning lightsaber in combat in tandem with the Force at the very earliest stages.
Also: can we assume that Revan trained with Huyang in the lightsaber training montage in KOTOR?
Next they'll take dark side eyes to the next level and tell us Sith are only red because alignment makes humans change colour.
Next arc preview:
I believe that's the rumored "Colonel Gascon."
@Super_Battle_Droid posted this awesome observation in LACWAC (hope you don't mind me reposting it here bro):
The resemblance may be deceptive, but it's uncanny.
Ubbelievably great!!! A miniature species in the GAR in command, on a humansized ship, used to its species advantage alongside droids... AWESOME, I love it. Whenever TCW does DROIDS it rocks so far. they should rename it DROIDS finally and ignore all the boring clone action. then at least we'd get more great episodes.
...........I have no idea if that is sarcasm or not.
I do mean it, no sarcasm. The clone episodes are the less interesting ones to me, I know others love them. But I prefer Mortis, Droids, the Young Jedi Arc and such stuff. Onderon was great too. also Boba and Dathomir.
but the clone centric episodes, well Rookies and their arcs are nice, but aside the technology of Umbara I can't like those episodes. no idea why, maybe Krell killed it for me, but even without him, I think all the other aspects way more interesting than the story of individual clones who A) are dead by the end of the war anyway or soon thereafter and B) I had clone stories that were great already, do not need repetition. Karen Traviss did best clone stories I ever read. And yeah many loath her, I love her writings, not so much Order 66 and her retconning, sure, but the previous books and her style in general are superb. Even her LOTF novels I loved where she got characters spot on.
I won't lie. I loathe the droid centric eps of s4 (though not enough that I'll actually skip them in a marathon, they're just forgettable), and was bored by the one in s3.
But having said that, I was so impressed by how well crafted the Padawan episodes were that I'm actually willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that this story may pull something off. Plus, it may provide...
1. Lots of fleet action
2. Gregor/Republic Commando(es)
3. The supposed artistic weirdness that is the void episodes.
Due to that, while I am not psyched for these episodes, I do imagine I'll be able to sit back and enjoy them. Here's hoping whatever mission these droids accomplish has some notable impact on the war, though.
did anybody ever wonder if those minispecies build minidroids too?
well that clip hilarious.
They probably ride MSEs like dune buggies.
Somehow doubtful as having to miniaturize would severally limit the utility of those droids.
well some build normalsized droids they can climb into to become bounty hunters
and these species would not have to miniaturize... they are experts at creating small stuff already. I bet they are the best microsurgeons
More of a full battle suit and the thing is that as with droids technology in the GFFA seems to mostly design to be used on human scale (even Hutt tech as it is intended to be used by servant species ). If they could readily build Mini Droids with all the abilities of the ones we know, one should asume people would also be building “bigger” ones with far more abilities than the normal seen models.
Coruscant construction droids... skyscraper sized crawling across skycrapers...
The Celebration preview showed video-game-level Republic Commando action, complete with convenient explosive barrels.
Those are huge moving factories preciously because they need to be that big to do what they are needed for.
and what do you call Abominor then? factory or droid for they too could be both!
I would actually call those living beings just like Vuffi and his people.
@TrakNar please illustrate this now
Time to add that to my to-draw list...
I just figured out why TCW's meddling irritates me so much, because I enjoy Star Wars, and other universes like Star Trek, Stargate, Harry Potter, Homeworld, and Halo, as much for their backstories as the stories themselves, TCW changing things around feels like rewriting history to me instead of just another fictional work.
How could Halo rewrite its story? It basically has none to speak off.
Apparently the little twerp *does* ride in droids.
Also, something to consider: Dave Filoni has been making a big deal about how we would see more "non-clone officers" like Tarkin this season. Now the OS is trumping this guy as a "non-clone officer." Tarkin, watch your back bro.
Tarkin should step on him.
