    im talking about the one who was kind of like a jouster on a bike

    and turned into that giant blob thing

    at the end of the episode you could see the slime start to move again

    just wondering who that was and if he will play a bigger role in the future(more cartoon episodes or ROTS)

    His name is Durge who also plays a part in a few of the comics. He isn't a droid though, he's a Gen'Dai Bounty Hunter. He isn't in Episode 3 and although possible, probably won't be in season 3 either.

    When the Clone Wars multimedia campaign was first planned, apparently Durge was going to have a much larger role (like Asajj Ventress - she's been in much more comics and books compared to Durge), but he suffered from what I believe is now known as "Poochie Syndrome" i.e. nobody liked him. Too bad, he had potential - I think the cartoon ruined his character :(

    Durge was introduced in Republic #51-53 (colelcted in Clone Wars: Volume 2).

    He would have appeared in Clone Wars Chapter 20 had they not been given the opportunity to introduce Grievous, which is why Durge's bits are shown oozing away at the end of the one chapter.

    He'll be featured in the comic series Obsession starting soon with him and Anakin fighting it out.

    How would Durge be in Grievous' place. He's not strong enough to kill eight Jedi, and he'd have to get to the other planet quickly.

    I would imagine that when they were given the go ahead to introduce Grievious, they changed the plot of the final episode a bit.

    The plot for the final chapter would have been different- it would have remained on Muunilist.

    Though Durge has killed several Jedi ;)
