    Vote for Cad Bane! The fate of them finishing the Clone Wars arc with him and the other bounty hunters meant for Season 6 hangs in the balance.

    I have seen pictures of the animation team working on this episode in their final week at the Ranch.

    Okay, who the heck voted for Vader over Maul? I swear, some folks have no taste. :_|

    Now let's make up for this atrocity by putting Bane over the top. But then again, considering this is a OT character he's up against and most people vote for those unconditionally, I don't think he has a snowball's chance in Mustafar of beating Jabba.

    Well, just as I predicted, Bane lost to Jabba. He at least put up a good fight, tho'.

    Agreed, not surprised that Cad lost, but 38% of the vote is admirable up against a classic character like Jabba. Hopefully the quantity of votes was significant also, and enough to let Lucasfilm know that we'd like to see more of him in action.

    I love Filoni lol, ya some of his ideas are misses (Gasgon anyone?) but some of his ideas have been out of the park home runs too. I really like what he did for Star Wars.

    Yes, endless shoehorned Ahsoka and OT dialogue is good for SW...

    Cad Bane was a great idea IMO. So whoever had that idea hit it out of the park. If with was Dave that's +10 for him.

    According to the Wook it was a team effort, starting (as these things usually do) with old concept art and guidelines from Lucas:

    Initially, bounty hunters were not to be a part of the television series, but as the first season's storylines developed, a character was required to fill the role of a hunter. Supervising Director Dave Filoni and writer Henry Gilroy explored the possibility of bringing the Gen'Dai mercenary Durge into the series, and the character was re-imagined as a Human. The individual evolved into one named "Nom Kahbah" before Lucas became personally involved with the development, suggesting that a Western American influence be used. At Lucas's request, inspiration for the character was taken from actor Lee Van Cleef's performances in the films The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and For a Few Dollars More.[6][11][63] Filoni found an unlabeled sketch of a bounty hunter from the original Star Wars trilogy,[6] and the resultant creation was Bane, whose model drew from the concept art[11][19] with additional expansion by Lead Designer Kilian Plunkett to incorporate the Duros species' features.[6] Lucas eventually changed the character's name to "Cad Bane," paving the way for Bane's place in Star Wars canon.[63]'

    Still don't understand why Cad Bane's presence somehow negates Durge's very existence. I maintain that it would have been cool to see Bane and a team of bounty hunters break into the Temple and recover an ancient sarcophagus that contained Durge.

    It's probably for the best that the writers didn't poke that beehive.

    Probably, but I don't think it was out of some sense of tact.

    Okay, but all of this is confirmed through this article: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dave_Filoni

    This was the final version I sent her cause I had a feeling she might not know who it was. She didn't answer until I spelt out starwars at the end so I'm pretty sure she didn't recognize him, but she did message me and said it was awesome.

    Since Cad Bane was a long time ago, wouldn't sliced bread be the coolest thing since Cad Bane?
