    The Legends Wookieepedia article says there was some inconsistency about the size of the Octuptara, and says the octuptara combat tri droid was a smaller version of the octuptara magna tri droid. But it definitely wasn't smaller than a B2.

    I did not like it.

    The story was okay, but B1 droid reminded me of Roger from Freemakers - not a threat more a comic relief. Also the pink Jedi girl - most of her dialogues felt forced not funny.


    But the art... the art was the thing that really put me off. Yoda, Kit Fisto, especially in the background - just simply ugly.

    ^Not particularly since in canon we see Plo piloting a ship far more often than Saessee.
    But then that is just a side effect of Plo being Filoni's favorite character.

    Oh yeah I was thinking about the novelization, there Sheev is like "hey you're a telepath read my mind you can trust me" and the moron dipped his blade and got beheaded. You know what scratch my feeling bad for him, anyone who dips their blade like that deserves to die.

    edit: wait never mind i was wrong again. did I hit my head when reading the novel? Never trust me on anything now......I mean don't tell @The Vanguard that though

    He did a few thing in legends.
    Nothing in canon yet as far as I am aware.

    Does Agen Kolar even still exist in canon? I vaguely thought they might have just made him the same person as Eeth Koth now that the latter doesn't die on Geonosis.

    Of course he does! He's got a Databank entry, and also one in the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded.

    I have a thing to say about Agen Kolar.

    In Republic comics he had an interesting role. Maybe it was intentional -- I think it was subconsciously by Ostrander. You know that trope of the cop-that-means-well-but-gets-in-the-hero's-way? Like in TCW the show, Lieutenant Danny Devito Tan Divo who meant well but kept coming to the wrong conclusions? Or the Nikto in the badass trenchcoat in Agent of the Empire? Agen was like that. He was the "Jedi cop" harassing Quinlan. He meant well, but he was super by-the-book.

    That's all I have to say about Agent Agen Kolar.

    I know IGN didn't give it a good review but I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of the old DH Clone Wars comics and I liked the new characters and the dialogue. I agree that the artwork on Yoda was terrible...I guess that's a tie-in to some of those old DH comics too! ;)

    This was a particularly chatty issue but the Jedi Council are particularly chatty folk. Art was pretty badass during the action, though. And I quite like how feeble and scared the battle droids are and the final splash page indicated an interesting antagonist.

    I think the pink jedi was waaaaaay too out of character for a proper jedi knight

    to quote yoda: "A Jedi but have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind"

    They're not supposed to whisper to a jedi council member on who they think the "top 5 jedi of all time are"

    And before people come at me with "Ahsoka was bratty and chatty", that's true however I seem to remember a clip from the (now legends) TCW Republic Heroes game where she's fighting alongside Mace Windu in battle

    Windu: The way forward is clear, are you ready Padawan?
    Ahsoka: Does a Hutt smell bad?
    (Windu gives her a cold stare)
    Ahsoka: I mean....yes.... master

    It's a fair complaint, though. I mean, with my avatar I certainly don't mind some Jedi bantering, but that character felt a little too much like someone was just writing the voice of an Earth teenager who reads too many pop culture magazines and talks about them all the time. It felt out of place, in a way Ahsoka and Vos never did for me.

    Not the biggest fan of the art to put it mildly.

    But I like that we have some more Clone Wars action. Anybody else think that Miraluka Jedi is not going to make it?

    Is he called a Miraluka? Do we see him whitout the blindfold and showing flat surface where there should be eyes?

    So far, we haven't been told he's a Miraluka in the comic itself, but the author called him that on Marvel.com.

    Also Obi-Wan, who can be pretty snarky at times.
