    @Star Dude: i considered this, but what brings me up short is that the canon appears to be firing on the Resistance ships.
    i'd give good money for this to be the Finalizer in opposition to that Sith nonsense. but thus far LFL doesn't seem to want my money. XD

    Hm, maybe he awaited the return of his old master all along, with his own agenda in opposite to Hux and Kylo then.

    Fantastic Post @Star Dude also it looks like this SD is moving away from the rest of the fleet.
    Could this be where the Old Star Destroyer fleet is discovered.

    There is certainly a lot of animosity between the old Empire era officers & the up & coming FO officers.
    There is some great internally thoughts by the Dreadnought Captain ( sorry. I can’t remember his name off the top of my head).

    By the way @FN-3263827, do you refer to this space craft potentially being the Colossus?

    StarFortress_Resistance_Bomber_in Fleet.jpg

    It looks to me like a much, much smaller MG-100 StarFortress Resistance Bomber as seen in the opening scenes of TLJ, incl. that dark ball-turret on the bottom.

    Ah, these FO Jet Troopers clearly have a helmet different then the FO Snowtroopers (which is not the case for the Lego minifigure).

    FO_Jet_Trooper_01.jpg

    And these Tread Speeders act as a first line transports for the jets…

    FO_Jet_Trooper_02.jpg

    ... which seem to have a kind of shield (in the front where Reys red blaster bold can be seen to dissipate harmlessly) …

    FO_Jet_Trooper_03.jpg


    … before doubling up as a jump start vehicle for the jets!

    FO_Jet_Trooper_04.jpg

    FO_Jet_Trooper_05.jpg

    Which is a kind of craziness in vehicle/troopers tactics that I like.

    From a toy angle, the First Order Treadspeeder looks like a throwback to the Kenner mini-rigs! I'm hoping that it's something that would be made in either the 3.75" or 6" toy lines. As for the catapult feature? That was odd to see.

    And on the trooper front I was glad to finally see some Sith Troopers in the most recent TV spots.

    What's up with the A-wing flying past the X-wing going opposite direction?

    Also... is that lightening or Palpy force lightening shooting up into the clouds?

    The Medal of Bravery, handed out to Luke and Han on Yavin, can be seen in the first official teaser trailer for TRoS at around min. 1:33.


    Here’s the comparision:



    Can be one of these situations like in the X-Wing/TIE Fighter dogfight over the first Deathstar…

    Luke “I can’t shake him”
    Wedge “I’m on it Luke – hold on”
    Luke “Biggs, where are you?”
    BLAAAAM
    Luke “Thanks Wedge!”

    … where this X-Wing, tailed by an enemy fighter, is saved is saved by a comrade coming to help from the opposite direction, blasting the TIE behind to smithereens.

    Right, @Lock_S_Foils?

    @Star Dude, @Messi, @Obi5Kenobi: very very mild spoiler about the medal from the YA novel Force Collector:

    was always pretty certain that was going to be Han's medal, but Force Collector confirms that Han actually gave Luke's medal to Maz claiming it was his own. so unless somehow Chewie's medal is manifesting now for some reason, this one is almost definitely Han's.

    either way, it will be interesting to see what Leia does with it. : D

    I had completely forgotten about that in the teaser trailer! And my work is blocking everything so I can't watch it at the moment. But thank you!

    Thanks but I'm not reading the spoilers. I will go blind as I did will all SW movies so far.

    Thinking about it – how awesome would it be to see a Sith in his full glory, talking out starships with huge force lightning?

    YESSS – and I still hope they are more than just mere (red) cannon fodder.

    It seems that the old Star Destroyer, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious and the First Order are all in the same boat to some degree.

    Else the new Sith Trooper wouldn’t have been based on the regular FO Stromtrooper designs, but on something old style from the Empire’s era, like some further developed Imperial Royal Guards.

    Wouldn’t that have been totally cool and nostalgic?

    I sense Sidious will betray the First Order, much like he did The Separatists. He may co-opt fleets and etc; but I sense he does not have the same vision as Supreme Commander Kylo Ren, who doesn’t want another mentor/father figure. Sheev is dedicated to Old Sith Tradition, Kylo is all over the place.
