The Academy? If you're trying to discourage my interest, you're failing badly.
That having been said, I was more pleased by who is wearing the grav-ball armor than the grav-ball armor itself.
I think what he told us earlier when first announcing the book is that the pictured character is a traitor to His Imperial Majesty.
So, y'know, keep that in mind.
(though I suspect that's not what you're referring to)
Your suspicion is correct.
Yeah, seems the NEU is definitely going the diverse route right from the get go. Trying to avoid the mistakes of the past, I imagine.
So my latest book is out: Star Wars in 100 Scenes, from DK. It retells the story of the six films through iconic images -- 100 main ones and 300 smaller ones, in a design reminiscent of the Clone Wars Episode Guide. It's got interesting in-universe and real-world facts, and tells the story with an eye for what we learned from the prequels -- which becomes particularly important once Return of the Jedi comes along. This one's for kids, yeah, but I think it works for kids 8 to 80. Perfect gift for either a veteran fan who'd like to revisit the story in a new way or a kid ready for that first step into a larger world. Anyway, done spieling -- buy from the link above and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Jason Fry Beer & Mortgage Fund. Thanks!
Hmm, if Ackbar is in it, I will consider adding to your beer fund.
What Nick said, except substitute Jango and Boba Fett.
Retelling the saga without Ackbar or the Fetts? I wouldn't want to live in such a world.
That's how I feel about that one shot in Jedi of Tycho's A-wing.
Well, guess I better head to Amazon.com then...
if Amazon UK gets it I'll get it in my next order. Otherwise it will have to wait for an Amazon US order. Amazon UK is only listing used copies right now.
I liked Tycho, hope he remains in the NEU.
Update for UK folks - Amazon UK now has the book up with a Sep 1 release date.
Spoke with the good folks at Jedipedia about Servants of the Empire, Star Wars Rebels, Canon vs. Legends, the Jupiter Pirates and more....
Darn, that's the end.
Wait a minute! If I understand the list at the end, do you still have a lot of awesomely awesome awesomeness that was written but yet to be published?
Name your price and tell me whether you prefer cash, gold bullion, or precious gems?
Seconded. Will sell soul for more material.
Jason - I just wanted to say, thanks again to you, Paul, and everyone else involved with EGtW. It's an excellent piece, clearly full of hard work.
A oddity - it says the Falcon used proton torpedoes rather than concussion missiles against the DS2. Was this a retcon?
(The other thing that caught my attention is that it says Vader's armor was empty when Luke burned it - which is a long-standing EU factoid, but occasionally argued against).
Compromise: It wasn't empty when Luke started to burn it.
The quote was:
"Anakin's armour is empty - after his death, he passes into the Force, as Obi-Wan and Yoda did before him"
If my memory serves me right, this is not an EU factoid, but one that came directly from Lucas via the movie script or screenplay.
Problem is, other Lucas statements apparently specifically contradicted it. I think the EU came up with it first (KJA Jedi Academy series).
The last time the subject came up:
Two (or more) Lucas statements that contradict each other? Now, you're being such a tease! There's no such thing. That concept is entirely fictional, just like gorgons, unicorns, and Giuseppe Verdi.
