It must be like the later heavier ones.  I have no problem with the older vintage one.

Interesting. I don't think I've ever owned an updated ATST. The article I found reviewing the vehicle only makes the same complaints - no solutions offered. :(

Yes, that accurately reflects my problems.

I'm very excited about the character AND casting news. I just wish they had kept it secret. :(

Even more great news.  Love seeing these cartoon characters being brought to life in a live-action series:

Report: Katee Sackhoff Is Reprising Her Clone Wars Role on The Mandalorian

According to the site, Kryze would once again be played by Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff, who voiced Bo-Katan on both Clone Wars and Rebels. Given the first season’s cliffhanger ending revealing that new bad guy Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) now wielded the Darksaber and that the Empire had practically wiped the Mandalorian people out, suffice to say Bo-Katan’s potential role on The Mandalorian’s sophomore season is going to be an interesting—and likely tragic—one.

I'll be glad to see her too, but I don't see any way that it can end well - we know Gideon has her Darksaber :(

I mean, they managed to keep freakin' Baby Yoda a secret, they should be able to do that with anything!
I'm keeping all the rumoured & confirmed characters a secret from my kids though. At least they don't follow all the gossip news sites. I'll be able to experience their surprise vicariously.

Maybe she should get it back...

My daughter and I are CRAZY excited for a season that has Ahsoka, Sabine, and Bo-Katan. 

I have ZERO confidence Hasbro is up to the job of making sure they are ready with figs (except they are rereleasing Ahsoka and Sabine, it doesn't seem Mandalorian related)

I rewatched 7 & 8 last night with my wife who hadn't seen any of it (other than 9000 baby Yoda memes of course). She loved it. It transcends, just like the OT. More & more excited for season 2.  :)`

I've watched the first two documentaries. Pretty good. A lot of patting each other on the back but there's enough there to get some insight into some of the sensibilities and tone they are going for. And you really do get a strong sense of love and respect for the property from the creators, Favreau and Filoni in particular. Filoni's run through on the death of Qui-gon and it's implications is a good example of how he really gets it.

I found Kathleen Kennedy's inclusion in the second episode rather odd. She really seemed kind of awkward in that group.

Anyway so far they're worth watching.

I finally got around to watching the rest of the Gallery episodes, starting with #3 (Cast). The "back-patting" starts to clear up around there. Then I got to #4 (Technology), and HOLY CRAP!! The technical advancements that Jon Favreau has helped to spearhead in the last few years, and then pulling it all together for The Mandalorian, really blew me away. I had no idea so many of the shots in the show were done in that one set ("The Volume") - even the exterior environments! This method has got to be a game-changer for how any sci-fi/fantasy/action type entertainment is filmed. Green screens are going to really become a thing of the past. If you're a Star Trek fan - it's getting pretty close to the holodeck!

Also, in the later episodes, it becomes even more apparent how in-tune Filoni and Favreau are with Star Wars, and how much reverence and respect they and their team of directors has for George Lucas and the source material (unlike some other directors, who will remain unnamed). Obviously Filoni is a life-long uber-fan, lives and breathes every little detail, and also absorbed a lot from Lucas while working on The Clone Wars. But Jon Favreau is right there with him - he gets Star Wars, he gets technology, and most importantly - he gets people. I've been a big fan of his since way back when he did Swingers - it's really cool to see his career progress to where he is now, and for him to turn around and pull other people along on the ride and cheer them on as well.

I've said before, I don't have a militant hatred of Kathleen Kennedy. She's a smart person who has been in the industry for decades and been involved in producing dozens of iconic films. But it's obvious she doesn't connect with Star Wars the way that the creative team of The Mandalorian does. I'd love to see Jon and/or Dave take over more creative control of the franchise as a whole - but I don't think they'd want to go much further than that. I don't think they have the desire to deal with the "business" side of things (nor the ability in Filoni's case, to be honest). I think Kennedy could be of great value if she can spearhead that side of things - she has the connections and experience to make things happen for the "creative side" if & when needed. It'll be interesting to see how things progress with all the new shows they have planned, and who will have the most influence in creative decisions.
