    Maybe there will be a Darth Bane movie in which we see his TCW armor.

    Finally got a chance to sit and watch season six of TCW. Very good overall, but the Yoda storyline is my pick of the litter.

    The Yoda arc has that "etherial" atmosphere that some people have been speculating could be part of the ST.

    And I really hope it's a part of it.

    It illustrated how a Jedi learns how to maintain his/her consciousness after death, something I just assumed was a default thing that happens. It makes me wonder how Anakin became a force ghost when he died in ROTJ?

    I guess we didn't see Anakin die. Since he became a ghost, & Obi-Wan & Yoda's death shows us that the body disappears when they're going to become a ghost you'd have to say that Anakin perhaps only lost consciousness in RotJ. His body didn't disappear in that scene.

    I'm guessing GL didn't put that much thought into how & why Anakin could become a ghost back during RotJ. Probably thought it would be a nice way to end the movie & he didn't need to explain exactly how it happened.

    I wonder if we'll see any "sorcery" (although not neccessarily used by the Nightsisters).

    Istanbul was Constantinople. Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople.

    Yoda arc is good, but the order 66 arc would be my pick. It really adds to the tragedy of order 66.

    the slow realisation throughout the season by the Jedi, that they had been completely outplayed was good too

    Seriously though. If I was into cosplay like those folks from the 501st who make those incredible costumes... I would roll as Fives.

    When I first toyed with the idea of costuming, I wanted to make a Baron Soontir Fel flight suit. I was heavily into SWG and RP'd an Imperial Pilot lol.

    GL's refusal to tell even Filoni whether or not the Priestesses are Whills makes me wonder if he's trying to keep the Whills a surprise for the ST.

    How well did the Clone Wars tv show portray Star Wars?

    I thought that the way Anakin acts in the Clone Wars series really showed how powerful and smart he was, Revenge of the Sith, to me he acts completely different. Any thoughts on his behavior from the two different times?

    Yea, he is a new character. The "real" Anakin Skywalker for me.

    And the good thing: That's a completely valid position to take because officially TCW is now on the same level as the movies.

    I think Anakin, as portrayed in TCW, is a more likeable and more straightforward heroic character. However, the problem with this (in TCW) is that Anakin never really comes across as a person who could be believably be turned to the darkside (not for me anyhow). The episodes where he is more brooding, argumentative and petulant (the minority) are the epsiodes where he's ovbiously closer to the character portrayed in ROTS. That's the advantage TCW has - it has more time to portray him in a heroic light... and why, perhaps, this should have been the Anakin portrayed in TPM (i.e. heroic, light and dashing Jedi).
