    It's a big transport with two doors at the front (only one open in the trailer). This is the ship that will transport Jannah's cavalry to Exogol.

    The shot from the trailer has me mystified though, they appear to be evacuating civilians as well as Jannah's group with a battle raging overhead.

    It's pretty strange, yeah.

    Watching it again, the mounted charge on the Destroyer at least seems to be...in atmosphere, not in space, haha, think my eye was drawn more to the action than the background on initial viewing. But yeah, at least that's way less weird and makes some basic sense. Like it's only just lifted off, and they'd boarded it while on the ground.

    I was gonna say. [face_laugh] Cavalry charge in a vacuum, that's quite a feat.

    So did the Ghost just make a surprise appearance next to another iconic ship, the one that’s my avatar picture? And I’m also loving that awesome shot of the huge Imperial Star Destroyer making its way out of the sea!

    There's great action that involves characters climbing around on the outside hulls of huge spaceships in both TCW and Rebels. Can't wait to see it in live action!

    I bought a cool Hot Wheels model of the recently-returned A-Wing Fighter yesterday (it’s green color, btw) but can’t spot it in the final TROS trailer... There are just too many spacecraft in that photo above, I can’t recognize anything except for MF and The Ghost (as well as one U-Wing, which was circled in red)! :p

    Ah, nice eyes. Yeah, the engines are pretty prominent on the U-Wing, that's cool. Wonder if there are any other easter-eggs with the ships in that sequence? Should be cool to see it play out.

    I know it confused MSW in their trailer review but the Resistance Meeting takes place underneath the Tantive IV. That's why they built a full scale prop of it.

    I'm just a tad perplexed by the YT1300 in the trailer....
    The radar dish is pre-ROTJ because it was kind of knocked off and replaced with a squared off version...
    Han had made modifications after knackering it up in Solo....hence the round dish..
    Sooooo, what's the chances two YT1300's having the same config....?
    Or is it the Falcon from the early 80s?

    It’s the TROS Falcon with a new radar dish...The rectangular one broke off on Crait.

    The dish got shot off in TLJ. They have just replaced it with a round one.

    ....Maybe they find the old dish in the DS wreckage and stick it back on with duct-tape.....

    I'm going to post this here as it got lost in other thread;

    Whose X-Wing is this? The spoilers pretty much state that the group arrive in the Falcon on Pasaana and leave in Ochie's ship There is no mention of an X-Wing and is that Artoo there as well?

    More thoughts;

    These look like troopships heading for Pryde's ship to intercept the cavalry charge. It looks like they are coming from one of the Sith ISDs. Will the offload F.O. Stormtroopers or Sith Troopers?
    [​IMG]

    And another thought about the Resistance super Fleet. Perhaps they are grouped together like that because they are behind the stationery ISDs? Those Sith ships are just floating there, attack them from the rear, out of the firing arc of the big guns and you can pick them off one by one.

    Will the Sith SDs be as large as the old Imperial ones? Cause the FO SDs are twice as large as the Empire's.

    They look just like the old ISDs without a hangar (to make way for the big gun). I really suspect that they are nothing much more than drone ships all controlled from Pryde's SSD. If they do destroy Kijimi then maybe they position a dozen or so around the planet and all fire at once? Knocking out the DS got rid of the Empire's biggest weapon, knocking out one ISD gunship means nothing when you have a few hundred in reserve.
