    There has to be a rule to NOT going to planets that are stated as remote and secret in the movies.

    Proper or not, Ahsoka was phoned in in every Onderon scene. Again, after Gathering, the arc became about Ahsoka... Onderon was not about Anakin, Onderon was marketed as an Ahsoka arc. Obi-Wan has just one arc in S5 that focuses on him.

    The S2 cover was rather random if you ask me. Maybe they did not know what to do with the cover then.

    Bail Organa deserved the cover more than Yoda. :p

    Season 2 cover should have been Cad Bane
    Season 3 was fine
    Season 4 should have been Rex
    Season 5 should be Obi-wan

    Pffft... if we're gonna use a senator lets give Chuchi some spotlight again or lets see what happens when Lux joins the fray.

    And once again, Obi-Wan gets short-thrift...:( And still Obi-Wan gets almost as much flak as Anakin and Ahsoka for appearing in too many episodes! (And in many of the earlier seasons, he merely appeared, arms crossed, crossly scolding Anakin or spouting orders only to disappear.)

    I'm tempted to do my own character appearance count, broken down by significant role vs insignificant appearance (Anakin and Obi-Wan would both be insignificant in this latest episode).

    Mustafar should appear one time and one time only in the saga--as the site of Anakin's doom.

    And Obi-Wan does keep getting screwed, and not in a good way. The best explanation I can think of is that Filoni doesn't like him.

    Is this opinion of Obi-Wan getting screwed based on Season 4? The slavery arc - that was unavoidable... that was in the comic adaption. And to be fair I think Revival more then makes up for the fact how much Darth Maul beat him up in Revenge :p I can only recall those episodes as being the ones where's beaten up or turned into everyone's favourite punchbag...

    Besides if the show's ideas have been coming from George all this time, then surely the blame can't be levelled at Filoni's feet? :p

    Obi-Wan, Rex, and Ahsoka all deserve covers IMHO.

    I liked Cody's cover however.

    Actually, I've already done a character appearance count based only on significant appearances - yes, that makes me a Star Wars geek! :)

    Anakin has 51, Ahsoka has 38 and Obi-Wan has 37.

    Note that if they only appeared in one scene in the episode I did not count that as an appearance.

    Maul reappearing in and of itself was a giant "**** you" to Obi-Wan's character. Could the guy at least really kill the Sith who killed his Master, prior to his apprentice turning Sith and killing him?

    Whether the majority of the blame could be laid at Filoni's or Lucas' feet could be debated I suppose.

    And this could be my perception but it also seems that fan requests for more Obi-Wan were met with more Obi-Wan...getting pwned.

    Ahsoka will probably be on the S5 DVD cover

    That Obi-Wan gets beat up and just keeps coming back makes him more badass for me.

    And Obi-Wan's beast came out in "Revival" against Maul and Savage. You know it gets serious when that one strand of hair falls off of Obi-Wan's head. :p

    I realized after S2 that the cover is all about marketing, it doesnt have to be that accurate to content, they need to put someone on the cover who will sell DVD's and Blu-ray's to Joe Schmo and random mom's and dad's.

    That being said Ahsoka is kinda risky being that she's a divisive character. She deserves it though if you ask me, and I still vote for her. But they may give it to someone safer like Obi-wan (which I'm fine with) or change the whole thing and have it be not a portrait but a Maul vs Obi-wan scene, which would break the theme of the covers and would suck.

    I'm thinking there's quite a good chance they'll go with R2.

    I reckon it'll either be Ahsoka or Pre Vizsla, but Obi-Wan and R2 are likely too.

    I agree with you, @Watto about it being less about content and more about accuracy but I'm really hoping that the Ahsoka arc pushes it towards being Ahsoka (sure we've had 2 out of the 3 arcs be ahsoka featured already but i'm hoping the Jedi title episodes are just as we've been told - "top down, 5th gear, left lane.")

    I'd actually be really disappointed if Obi-wan had to share his cover with Maul even if its a cool looking dual. That's weak IMO. I'm really rooting for Obi-wan for season 5. I wouldn't be surprised if they do Maul again since he's such a focal point for the series at the moment apparently. I can see R2 getting it. BZ with Gascon popping out. xD

    Poll: who would sell more discs: Ahsoka, R2, Obi-wan, Rex....

    or Borkus.

    Who knows...it could be someone who hasn't been in the series yet at all - sure, Maul was referenced in S3 but he didn't appear until the very end of S4. I actually hope/think it'll be between Ahsoka, Obi-wan or Ventress...I'm leaning towards thinking it'll be Ventress.

    Might be a fun poll to run actually, "Which character do you think would sell more discs?" ...hmmm.
