   Right now, on GOG, you can purchase the classic LucasArts’ game, “TIE Fighter” for $3.99 (US). I can’t remember how many hours of my 20’s I spent in the virtual cockpit of a X-Wing and a TIE. I picked up X-Wing last year, and it plays fine on my Windows 10 Laptop.

Star Wars Rebels is Back this Saturday

   I feel more excited by this trailer than I am for Episode 8, next Winter. This is going to be a hell of a 3rd season! Kenobi is back, which I’d imagine would be the season finale, and we get to see Thrawn get physical. Remember that you can watch the episodes earlier on DisneyXD if you don’t want to wait for the normal “broadcast” time.

Star Wars Rebels: Inside Man

maxresdefault

   I am not one of those detractors of the series who whines about the kid friendly content. The series airs on DISNEY X/D, a children’s network. There has been some silly moments and outright comedic ones this season. The “Inside Man” has very little light hearted humor. It is a dark episode that should make my friends on the Force Center Podcast and Collider’s Jedi Council pretty happy ( some of the aforementioned whiners😁). I have nothing but love for those folks.

Star Wars: TIE Fighter

   Am I tardy to the party? Nope, but somebody brought this little gem back into my consciousness, today. This short film is some of the best Star Wars traditional animation that I’ve ever seen. It was uploaded to YouTube back in 2015, and has garnered over 6,742,808 views! OtaKing77077 is a master of his craft.

Star Wars Rebels: Imperial Supercommandos

   This week we get to meet the Mandalorians who work for the Empire. We also get to see more character development for Sabine. Dave Filoni has really honed his storytelling skills and given us an absolutely wonderful third season, so far. I am not someone who get’s caught up in the whole “This isn’t my Star Wars” thing. I can take enjoyment in watching Darth Maul’s machinations just as much as laughing at Hondo’s crazy schemes. From Puffer Pigs to James Earl Jones’ reprisal of Darth Vader, this show is a great escape for my Wife and I. If you haven’t already checked it out, then what are you waiting for?

Bad Robot Teases Tarkin

   The cool patch offer aside… the fact that they have an incredible bust of Grand Moff Tarkin is a huge teaser! What can this mean for Rogue One or even Episode 8? Time will tell.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story | ローグ·ワン:スターウォーズストーリー

ローグ·ワン:スターウォーズストーリー

   I cannot wait for this film. I am looking forward to it more than Episode 8! How many times have I watched these? I have no idea, but it has been more time than I view the trailer for The Force Awakens. Having another female lead is very cool, along with the diversity of the cast. The planet Jedha and it’s inhabitants intrigue me the most. I’ll also be watching for any easter eggs that hint at anything from Rebels 🙂
