    Since Moff Gideon was like the main villain for Season 1, would it be something is Boba Fett were the main villain for Season 2?

    Maybe hired to hunt down the Mandalorian and the Child, plus he was well known as a Traitor to the Mandalorian Creed.

    Seeing the Boba Fett dance to this day stil makes me miss goofy campy fun like the dance-offs and annoys me that it got shut down because of fan complaints. Bah.

    I know I’ve talked down on Boba before. But a Filoniverse take on him should do wonders so I’m down. I was honestly more excited about Temuera Morrison than anything else.

    Just watched the first episode of the making of Mando, just put it together that Bryce Howard is Ron Howard's daughter. As if he didn't need more points in being my new favorite Star Wars creator, Filoni references Toshiro Mifune and is wearing a Princess Mononoke shirt. This man deserves Kennedy's position more than he realizes.

    Just wait until you get to Episode 2. Filoni spends 5 minutes analyzing how the fight in The Phantom Menace thematically connects to the ending of Return of the Jedi. He totally gets Star Wars. Also, his story about how he was hired by Lucasfilm is hilarious, and he thought he was being pranked by the writers working on Spongebob. Kathleen Kennedy is in the episode too, and her segments are just awful. She interrupted Jon Favreau half the time she was on there, and nothing she contributed was about Star Wars. It seemed like she was trying to one-up everyone by saying things like “well, I knew George from working on Indiana Jones.” She never mentions anything about Star Wars or its story.

    Kathleen Kennedy is a nuisance.

    My buddy mentioned to me that Filoni's description was nothing short of poetry. Watched it earlier and yes, it's exactly that. Kennedy definitely sounded like a shitbag that whole episode. She clearly doesn't give two shits about Star Wars, and couldn't be more undeserving of her position. I want that woman to go away or be put in a torture basement somewhere.

    Please refer to above statement. :lol

    Hot Toys just revealed their new Rex 1/6th scale figure, and they used Temuera's face for him. Head onto the Clone Wars thread for full images, but maybe this is a sign they're going to have him in S2 as Rex and/or Boba.

    They used Temeura’s likeness for Rex before, both by Hasbro and Sideshow. It has nothing to do with him being in Mandalorian if he is.

    I’m having doubts now that they’ll do Maul or Ahsoka. I feel like they just did Rex as an “easy” retool of their existing Clone buck.

    Feel like they love doing Maul so I bet we see one. Ahsoka we might have to wait until her appearance in Mandalorian and then release her in that line.

    I hope that's not the case, I like her S7 design.

    Though I'm obviously not opposed to a Mando Ahsoka, whatever she may look like, I just want the three main character from the final arc in the same era. Clone Captain Rex, robot legs Maul, and... Mandalorian casual-wear Ahsoka. (all her outfits look kinda strange, when you think about it. Not quite Jedi attire, not quite combat gear)

    Rebels Ahsoka is actually my fave design of hers and I ain't ever getting anything from that in 1/6 scale so like whatever I guess. Wonder if they'll do ARC Troopers.

    If Mando is after ROTJ then why would Maul be in it?

    They are talking about Hot Toys figures. It has nothing to do with the show.

    Yeah, that was my bad. It was brought up in relation to Rex possibly appearing but I kinda veered it off course. :x

    It's only 9-10 years between her Rebels appearance and Mandalorian.

    At this point I’d like to consider this show in the slot that Resistance occupied.
