    Which series are they watching? Haha, maybe they got it mixed up with the earlier Clone Wars animated shorts series (Gennedy Tartakovsky (sp?)) that Rex was not in.

    I'm actually excited to hear the new Forcecast interview with Dave Filoni just to see if they said any of this to him.

    Rex and Palpatine sharing screen time... "You can't say or your won't say Captain."

    Are Nulls going to show up next season?

    I'm sure it has something to do with TCW stepping on more of the EU if that happens. Besides that I feel TCW doesn't need any more new clone characters showing up. There are plenty to develop.

    Filoni said he would use a different Null Squad. The only good Traviss books are Hard Contact and no prisoners anyway.

    If the Nulls show up, we can only hope that they're humiliated or get their "brothers" killed through their adorable, super speshul ultra Mando-commando (TM) antics.

    I don't believe the Nulls have anything to do with Rex. ;)

    I don't recall Filoni ever saying anything about Nulls. Clone commandos maybe, but Nulls? Is there a source for this?

    I remember Filoni talking about using more Commandos like made a cameo in the Savage Opress stuff back at SDCC 2011 but that's it.

    Moar commandos!

    Doesn't have to be Delta.. maybe the squad they used in the Clone Wars comics twice.. Aiwha squad I think it was..

    I agree that already existing squad being used would be great.

    We can't be joking about this in the SW General Thread. Irresponsible. =b

    I also think "Mystery of 1000 Moons" where Rex was turning blue was where I figured it out he wasn't bald. Now it confuses me when my friend at work is like -- "That one bald clone..."

    "Hardcase?"
    "Jesse?"
    "Waxer?"
    "...Oh... he's not bald..."

    Given the transformation of Obi-wan Kenobi to Rako Hardeen I'm sure the GFFA has easier and longer lasting hair bleach even if for some reason someone decided to keep their hair really, really, really short. A pill that changes your hair color. XD

    I'm sure its just a clever way to hide receding hairlines for the chicks. A lot of clones seem to be going bald anyways.

    At this point talking about Rex's hair is more fun than going around in circles about Maul.

    Indeed, count me in.

    I like the new combination helmet. I didn't really care about it at first, but I've grown attached to it. Part of it is probably my feeling that they went to Phase II clones too early in the series.

    I agree going to phase II armor was to early if the show lasts eight seasons. I love Rex's new helmit. I like how its such a mix of evil and hero aesthetics. Likely foreshadowing for what will go on with Rex's future development and inside his head.

    Exactly, if there are eight seasons and Phase I armor only in the first two, that will just be weird. I honestly miss the old Clone Trooper look. It takes some of the effectiveness of them looking more like Stormtroopers away if they look like that for too much of the series.

    Phase I Helmets are so much easier to draw :(

    But I want scruffy Rex/clones back.. in week or even month long battles they can't have time to shave right? Meh.. just would seem more realistic.. but maybe that's asking for too much..

    I think letting closes get progressivey scruffier may be to much to animate. Granted in both Geonosis and Umbara the clones did gradually get dirtier. In Umbara I also thought it looked like the armor got scruffed up more as the arc progressed. Jesse's helmet really seems to get scratched up.

    Considering we've not seen REx in any Season 5 trailers......
    MAYBE HE DIED OFF SCREEN!

    Sadly my friend... Rex was in a S5 spot on CN. :(

    I am sorry for informing you about this! I was hoping he was dead too.
