    Nice images. Vestara's shirt is a little questionable for a 16 year old, though. Though, in a universe where 14 year old padawans run into active war zones and naked centaurs gallop around the jungle I guess it's not that bad.

    EDIT: And I think I figured out who @CeiranHarmony is on FB. :p

    Come on, Bossk, you're one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. You can afford a bigger wardrobe.

    Tell that to Han. Admittedly, though, I think one of the books mentioned that his clothes are not the originals, or at least refitted.

    I'd love to see entries on Tag & Bink, Aldaric and Jaalib Brandl, Inquisitor Tremayne, and. . . what was the name of the Rebel Alliance historian from the West End Games literature? Him too.

    Thanks, Nick! In addition, I'd like to suggest Ace Azzameen. I don't believe he's made into the character guides yet; and he's had a fairly large role in the Rebel Alliance to not have made it in one.

    if only we could get a game where Marek Steele, Ace Azzameen, Keyan Farlander and Rookie One team up to show Soontir Fel, Wedge Antilles and Co who the real aces are :p

    Looks like it'll be as white as the ERC.

    Two errors:
    * Jaden Korr has no beard and didn't wear his sleeveless Jedi robes, while the yellow blade and his cut fingers suggest that the artist wanted to represent him during the hunt for the Jedi/Sith clones.

    * Vestara has no tattoo, it's only temporary during some Sith ceremonies (such as henna), and yet in the majority of the illustrations they draw her with tattoos.

    maybe that's like the Kesh version of a senior protrait, she's no longer a tyro but is now an apprentice to Lady Rhea so she had a nice action portrait to hang over the hearth in Khai manor [face_devil]

    No, now she's Olivia Wilde instead.

    Nice art! But... Jaden sort of looks like a shaved mulletless Revan.

    Good catch. I don't mind that though. I don't have any issue with characters being based on real world people. I am against those bland, featureless faces we saw in many cases in the Essential Readers Companion.

    Quality art, from the looks of it. Still waiting for Ederlathh Pallopides.

    Unfortunately, that's positively modest for the misbegotten youth of today. Why, back in my day. . .

    So Nick, what was it like to see Star Wars as a silent film?

    For the record, I was a month old when Return of the Jedi came out. I know my parents brought me with them to the movie. I can only assume that even as an infant I was an Ackbar fan. :p

    Well, I expected Bossk, and I also expect Dengar, as those two now have TCW backstories. I still demand Zuckuss, though.

    I wish they had just used Zuckuss and 4-LOM instead of every bounty hunter that's showed up in TCW.

    ...I don't. 4-LOM could be forgiven, as his date of manufacture has yet to be revealed. He could legitimately be active then. However, enough sources have stated that Zuckuss was rather young, and therefore would not have been born then. So, leave him out of TCW entirely.

    The way this show's been going, they'll use him and kill him off.

    The guy in ESB? That's 5-LOM. What, did Lucas not mention that before?

    It was obviously Lucas' creative intent all the way back in 1979 for 4-LOM to be 5-LOM. He has clearly been plotting this all out since the very beginning. The whole Sundered Heart/Tantive IV switcheroo? OBVIOUSLY from the original storyboards for The Star Wars.

    You just don't understand that it's stylistically designed to be that way, and we can't undo that, but we can diminish the effects of it.
