Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I'd say.

Also, lots of peer pressure and experimentation with Death Sticks.

That's it. Time to spam the shit out of Bob Iger's mailbox.

Protip: do NOT send anthrax! It'll only get you incarcerated, plus, it's not like he's gonna open those anyway.

Yeah Dark Horse has been rumoured to have been making some kind of huge announcement for the last week or two and nothing's come down yet. I doubt it has anything to do with Clone Wars, if anything it most likely has to do with their rights situation regarding their Star Wars line. As mentioned above it is supposed to expire...unless they've worked out some kind of deal with Disney/Marvel to co-publish, which would be huge news, but outside of this I haven't been able to come up with what it could be.
Well whatever this announcement is, Randy Stradley was very excited to make it. He teased that there was an announcement and then has had to keep pushing it back. If it was something bad he wouldn't have been antsy to share it with fans.

Scott Ian would make a damned awesome Jedi. He wouldn't even have to wear any makeup.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I just finished watching Bounty from season 4, it's the last look we'll get at TCW Fett, I guess. The thing is, I kind of liked the way they left things with Boba. He kind of gets his ass kicked but I wonder if he ends up getting his share of the loot from Dengar and the other Bounty Hunters? It was a great Ventress episode.

I'm now trying to figure out which episodes contain the final appearances of Sing and Hondo. Neither of them were in season 5 at all, were they? Does anyone know?

Hondo was in season 5 a shitload in the beginning. Sing is nothing but a bland background character, so nothing else needs to be done with her.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Aurra Sing has always been background fodder, but let's face facts: the Star Wars universe thrives on background fodder. At least the merchandising based on it does.

If they stopped making Star Wars action figures of anybody or anything that wasn't a significant character with importance to the script the entire business would die off pretty quickly. There are only so many versions of Harrison Ford in his smugger outfits that folks can stand.

That's a fair opinion, I'm just trying to reconcile with what Lucasarts won't be able to wrap up for us.

Sorry guys, it was mighty late when I posted. I meant to say Cad Bane, since that's one of the characters that we aren't getting a proper conclusion. Thanks for the info!

So Hunt For Ziro was Sing's last appearance? Will have to check it out. I remember she made a comeback in Assassin. I think Cad Bane's must have been the final part of the Obi Wan "undercover" arc.

Most certainly. And TCW excelled at this, it was such a special treat to give voices/stories to all of these great characters!

Except for Wat Tambor.

When you mentioned the Ford versions I thought to going past the toy aisle and seeing rows and rows and rows of Bumblebee transformers on pegs.

I wonder if spamming Bob Iger will make a difference. Sending him the band Anthrax certainly sounds amusing but I'm not sure harassing Disney would amount to anything.

All the heart felt protest letters in the world would amount to nothing more than another numerical statistic shuffled across Iger's desk in the course of a typical business day.

Am I the only one who thinks its a little premature to react to RUMORS, I'll get mad about it when and IF I hear a confirmation.

"Assassin" was Sing's last appearance. Zero hired her to kill Padmé, but after she was captured by Padmé and Ahsoka, she ended up in prison. "Hunt for Ziro" was a Cad Bane episode.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

It would be a pretty annoying disappointment to have spent this much time with Cad Bane during the course of the series' run and get no closure to his story. I wouldn't mind if he just sees the writing on the wall, disappears into the background of the galaxy and is never heard from again, but I'd certainly like to know what happens to the guy. Something. Anything.

He's been one of the most important of all the secondary characters and I think he deserves a little better than "oh, well. The series is over. Use your imaginations or wait for some future book or graphic novel."

Well no Clone Wars news coming from Dark Horse. Color me disappointed. This deal is getting worse all the time.
