    I finally watched Chapter 3. Love it!

    I hope for more action figures of the other Mandalorians, especially him in his new armor.

    So he went from a Bounty Hunter into a Fugitive.

    I think it’s highly likely Werner Herzog’s “The Client” was involved in the pillaging of Mandalore and that’s why he has the beskar. Herzog said “he’s not to be trusted” and all the bullshit about Mandalore “and the natural order of things.” Something’s up.

    I really wanted to like this having been fairly lukewarm towards the recent movies overall, and I did rather enjoy the first episode. However having watched all 3 so far I can't help feeling like I'm watching a friend playing a computer game or a rather elaborate LARPing session. It look great but it's all quite...uninspired, derivative, predictable, unsurprising and just a bit basic in terms of narrative and story telling. It's a shame really, there's a lot of potential there, it's just not living up to it thus far.

    I am so in love with this show so far and I definitely love the theme song of The Mandalorian. I think I might buy Star Wars figures again.

    This is more Star Wars than anything Disney has produced in the last 5 years! Wow! No virtue signalling, no pandering, no agenda driven nonsense....yet. A character who actually struggles to overcome obstacles. Just telling us a story about a bounty hunter in a galaxy far, far away, just what real Star Wars fans want. I've caught up with all three episodes and I'm enjoying it and it's very surprising because I myself have quite never gotten the hype around the whole Boba/Jango Fett badassery or whatever. I do think it's been hyped up a bit too much and bit overrated but then again Disney Star War has been that bad so it's somewhat understandable. Someone here though hit the nail on head about the action...how nostalgic it was...like real Star Wars action. Can't wait for the next episode. And baby Yoda...AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW..so adorable!

    Yeah, I posted the Best Buy link on Saturday. I've already ordered this guy and I don't even have the main Mando yet.

    I find it odd actually that Mando seems to be the only one who doesn't have a jet pack.

    I wonder if Feloni will try to bring Sabine into one of these episodes.

    He could have easily done it in the Mandalorian cave. Even if you dont see her face or hear her voice, her armor was unique to her. Rebels Easter egg.

    I like it. It makes him more relate able; more grounded.

    Spoilers for Rebels:
    Sabine is on Lothal at this time or out with Ahsoka looking for Ezra. We know she safeguards Lothal all the way to the end of Return of the Jedi. We don't know exactly when Ahsoka shows back up but we know that Sabine stayed on Lothal until that point.

    So I don't think she will show up.

    it's one of the many things the show borrows from, i have no complaints it can keep borrowing all it wants.
