    I just glad I have more viewings planned as I need it to focus on the new ship details like the KOR Ship & I must get a copy of the Visual Directory as there is going to be loads of good stuff in it.

    I just have two things to say:

    - I missed Kylo shuttle, was his trademark during TFA and TLJ.

    - Loved to see the old X-wing came out of the sea and be piloted by Rey.

    I can see people having problems with the Rise of the X-Wing. Luke using parts for a door; should it be rusted to the point of destruction? But I'm with you. Rey piloting Luke's X-Wing was too good an opportunity to miss.

    Well, we don't know exactly how long the X-wing stayed in the sea.

    Dunno if this is the right place to post this, but I spotted a vehicle easter egg towards the end. When all the ships show up towards the end, I was pretty sure The Mantis from Fallen Order was there.

    As much of a toy commercial as TROS is, the B-wings presence was appreciated.

    B-Wings are underrated. They're beautiful space craft.

    I'd pay good money to see a movie about the peak of Rebel starfighter design. That one episode of Rebels was not enough to satisfy my appetite for more B-wing action.

    Looking for that book too, @Addi Ras. I will get it for xmas.

    And yes, that “Red 5” vibe was also a big call home to my childhood, that brought back some good old memories. Especially with the tangling seaweed, just like on Dagobah.

    B-Wing were always my favorite, one of the first Revell Models I got in the early 80’s, together with the TIE Interceptor.

    I was missing Kylos shuttle two. At least I will get the new Logo version also for xmas.

    I’ve to re-watch this flick 2-3 times more during the next weeks to check out more details.

    I was happy to spot a very prominent Pelta class frigate from the Clone Wars era when they landed at the Resistance base after the battle.

    OK, so…

    Planet destroying magnitude weapons [check]

    Sith technology [check]

    And of course, if the shields are down, a single Starfighter can now destroy an Imperial Star Destroyer just by firing some shots on the planet-killer weapon to cause some energy backlash.

    By the way, can somebody tell me how/when did the ISD leave Exegol to destroy Kijimi, maybe I missed this because of my confusion during the first showing?!?

    How many ISD’s with such a weapon emplacement have then left Exegol before the rest was destroyed by the way?

    The walkers on Kijimi were new but I didn't get that great a look at them

    They looked like big spiders for me.
