Yeah, Bastila from KOTOR has the yellow double blade. I’m not a huge fan either.
believe me I am ALL FOR new toys, especially when it comes to lightsabers, but for some reason, I'm not feeling the yellow saberstaff thing. But whatever, I'm not gonna hate that or be mad if it happens, because it would indeed look cool, just not my preferred option.
I kinda don't want that? Feels like that would put us too far into the 'he's just copying from ROTJ' line of discussion? But yeah it's probably happening, and yeah I will be fine with that, especially if we get a joke associated with Finn, either him directly saying something like "seriously guys? here again?" or Poe looking at Finn and giving him "Buddy, I've got some news you aren't gonna like"
I’m a KOTOR and Bastila fan, but the yellow just never worked for me.
sphagnum liked it!
Finished Queen's Shadow. Overall a pretty good book, though I think the ending was somewhat underwhelming. The epilogue was interesting and clearly meant to set up a sequel about Sabe but I can't imagine Lucasfilm greenlighting that.
Guess I'll put this in spoilers to be safe.
Not the best YA Star Wars novel (still Lost Stars), but a very enjoyable read. B+.
I think it aged pretty well.Was watching a bit of the '03 Clone Wars over the weekend. I remember really digging it way back when, but something about it seems off now. Obi-Wan feels like way more of a dick than he ever is in the movies. Also, as cool as I found the amped up Jedi combat the first time, now it feels sorta of Devil May Cry-ish and a little too OTT.
I know most people are high on the newer Clone Wars show but wondering if anyone else has looked back at the first one at all recently, and how well you guys think it has aged.
YA has less to do with the style of writing and more to do with the age of characters and the target audience (and sometimes the length of the book). Lost Stars, LPOA, Rebel Rising, Ahsoka, and Queen's Shadow are all YA Star Wars books. Not coincidentally, they all also focus on teenage girls or young women.I had no clue that Queen's Shadow was YA until sphagnum mentioned it was. And I was about halfway through the book myself, at that point.
Having finished it, I'd say that it is a nice, light read. No galaxy-shaking revelations here, just some much-needed character work for Padme. I also thought the book's exploration of the handmaidens and their dynamic was perhaps its most engrossing element.
this design seems to be a bit much for me actually. I was gonna say I really dig the U wing design but that's based in the OT timeline. Hmm, in regards to the sequel trilogy, I guess the ships I really like are the big ones like Snoke's ship or the redesigned star destroyers. I'll say that yeah, it's hard to point one out, like a fighter, for the Sequel trilogy cause they're basically just xwings and tie fighters.
Look, my biggest complaint about the new movies is how everything looks exactly like 40 years ago in the navy of both armies, and I think, with a few fixes this would make a dope new ship for the First Order. Maybe put the engine somewhere else and arange the wings slightly different, but hey, why use new stuff when you just can throw exactly the same looking ship at the people.
I'm really into the concept of the sith having to acquire their sabers through killing a jedi taking their saber and corrupting it with the dark side until it's red, and then the whole ahsoka angle where she purged a dark side saber and it became white.
I 1000% agree. The whole thing with bleeding crystals and stuff just feels so superfluous or dumb like the Death Star’s evil crystal core or whatever. Just let us intuit that bad guy’s just use red because that’s how symbols work.
Staff that is pretty unique to Rey plus a color that is less common but not "exclusive" to someone(Mace's purple)
I mean, not for lack of trying. In Catalyst they talk about infusing the Death Star’s crystals with Dark energy. I just think they didn’t have it nailed down until the First Order, right? But the concept is still there.
Dark energy and the dark side aren't the same thing. Dark energy is a real life concept that has no Force affiliation and it's what powers Starkiller Base.
Grievous is the main thing I remember from the show so maybe I just need to watch more. So far it's a lot of clones and droids shooting each other, haha.
Blue, green, and purple don't have any particular meaning. Yellow is reserved for the temple guards, and Ahsoka's lightsabers are white to signify that she purified them from the Inquisitor's corruption and also isn't a Jedi.If kyber crystals are connected to the Force then it makes sense that imbuing them with the dark side would change their nature. I have no problem with the bleeding crystals thing as it pertains to red lightsabers.
The rest of the colors having meaning is dumb and as far as I know is no longer a thing in the current canon.
