Technically the banking stuff didn't show up until AOTC.

I actually liked them, too. The Clone Wars actually managed to make the whole trade dispute banking nonsense from TPM somewhat interesting.
As much as I love the SW universe, I can't say I've ever been remotely curious to learn about the trade and banking customs that exist there.

Perhaps a few paragraphs devoted to the subject in one of the novels would make sense, but it's certainly not something I'm dying to see in a movie or animated series.

They were a holdover from the fourth production cycle and would have aired in Season Five but were pulled.

I seem to be the only person who actually liked those episodes. I thought Sidious' manipulation of the situation was utterly brilliant, and it was great to see Padme actually realizing Anakin is a psycho for half a second.
I enjoyed them. They weren't amazing, but there was still some interesting stuff in them.

They were decent Clovis episodes if that says anything. We've all seen much worse out of the series, and at least we got to witness Anakin's anger and jealously provoked, further foreshadowing what will happen to him at the conclusion of the wars.

I'm sure I'll get used to it as part of the art style....but does it bother anyone else how they've made the TIEs sort of squat looking compared to the movies?

Maybe the cramped TIEs explains the Storm Troopers squashed helmets.

Meh. I'd have gone with depicting the fighters with more movie-style proportions but I'm liking what I've seen thus far.

Re: New Star Wars animated show "Rebels" coming fall 2014

I wonder if we'll see any X-Wings in this. I've never been very clear on whether those were built specifically by the Rebellion to fight the Empire, or if they were older ships from before ANH that were fixed up and re-purposed because they didn't have much else.

Either way, I think it'd be awesome to see them again.

Yeah, the Y-Wings were leftover relics of the Republic era and the Clone Wars but I don't think we ever got a definitive, canon answer as to when the X-Wings were constructed by Incom and if they were strictly made just for the Rebel Alliance. Or did Incom even build them in the first place?

Given that pretty much the entire EU is now a mercurial thing, I can see a completely new origin for the beloved X-Wing.. At least we got the Headhunters in Clone Wars, so...

Well there was that vaguely X-Wing style ship in the prequels and TCW, so I guess we're supposed to assume that eventually evolved into the X-Wing we see in the OT.

They were made by Incom. Developed under the Empire then the design team defected.

Basically the development is ARC-170 (CW) -> Z-95 (Headhunter) -> T-65 (x-wing)

Seriously? I am fascinated by it, because $$$ always seems to be a huge part of war.
The amount of it included in the prequels' story (not a huge amount) was satisfactory to me.

Not really a spoiler I guess, the new ream of Hasbro 4" Rebels figures include a very familiar looking Sith lord in black armor. Love it. Absolutely going to eat this show with a garden trowel. Some of the other figures here (names are hard to read) might be spoiler-y.

I wouldn't take Vader's presence on that chart as any indication that he'll appear in the series since it seems to include a mishmash of characters from across the two trilogies. Including ones that are dead by the time of 'Rebels' or still living on a Tatooine moisture farm/hermitage or in a Dagobah hovel.

That said I don't doubt he'll show up sooner or later.
