    Also, wasn't it already confirmed that it's not coming back?

    Ever? :_|

    I know it was cancelled, but can't they like, un-cancel it?

    They could, but that would require the promise of money.

    Agent of the Empire. And yes, it is a shame it got cancelled.

    I knew it. I knew it was the fact that I lost track of it during the second arc.... I've bought them all now but it was too late.

    It was all my fault. :(

    Well, it's going to be a comic. :p

    Oh. I never read that series, but I've heard good things. Honestly, though, I'd rather have Invasion and Knight Errant return over AOTE.

    [controversial] I'd rather have AotE over Legacy 2.0 [/controversial]

    Definitely.

    Also, Invasion was garbage and Knight Errant was decent at times, but that's it - decent, and only at times.

    That's interesting, because I'd rather fire you.

    More specifically, the Rakata will use Flesh Raiders for their invasion. A TOR tie-in always rocks!
    Marketing 101 alert!

    Or the Flesh Raiders are devolved Rakata.

    Ah, but the point is that I like Legacy 2.0 -- that's the whole reason behind the comparison, to show just how much I'd liked AotE. I am by no means suggesting Legacy 2.0 is bad, so you needn't fear for your assassin droid in a trenchcoat that I know you have such affection for :p

    How could the Rakata devolve at this point?

    Well we already saw them as primitives on Lehon. The Flesh Raiders resemble the Rakata with the hammerhead and they both eat people. I imagine this arc will explain that. We know they have some sort of alchemy on Tython with flying rancors.

    We can it always call it "those new movies for a decade-old sci-fi franchise Abrams is doing". Although that's not really shorter than sequel trilogy.

    I see what you mean now. The word "devolved" implies slow, natural change, not Sithspawn (or in case, Rakataspawn).

    Well, it could be a 20,000 year process.

    But they said Flesh Raiders within DOTJ.

    Any news from the Del Rey panel yet?
