    He’s referring to when Mando was a kid during the Clone Wars I believe.

    Anakin is the chosen one ... he eventually restored the balance killing the emperor and himself in the process.

    I think they need the Yoda gens to study the longevity of this race. It's possible that the client or Palpatine or somebody else is working on immortality and they think that the gens of this species is the key. Whatever the project is I think they will fail, as force is always keeping the balance, immortality in physical form is unnatural and will be fight by the force.

    The other theory is that they try to clone a force sensitive, imagine an army of jedi clone troopers. That might be the next super weapon of the empire, after the failed death star, super dreadnought, supremacy, arc pulse generator, ... They like to create super nasty weapons, remember the Tarkin initiative? Whatever they are trying it is again unnatural and the force will fight to restore the balance, maybe this is what we are going to see in the mandalorian, for the force is always finding its way to restore the balance.

    Calen Kestis may actually be the Chosen One. I can’t spoil anything here. But his story’s last chapter in “Fallen Order” really intrigued me.

    We are all still lead to believe its Anakin, but since we found out it was The Emperor who created him, that story could possibly change, imo.

    I don't think they would go to all this effort to find the Yodling just for longevity considering it would be far easier just to find a wookie if the age of a creature was all that they needed.

    Yeah its either to help the emperor and/or snoke or for a weapon of some sort

    Does anyone else check Disney + every morning in a desperate and failed attempt to see if the house of mouse accidentally dropped an episode early?

    No one? Too desperate of a move?

    Yeah me neither... (r2-d2)

    I've finally seen that chapter 3.

    First: am I the only one who noticed the GUNGAN at 17:00 ?
    gungan.jpg


    Second. Probably due to my age (48 years old) I found the whole Mando's run to get TINY back very like a videogame : one enemy, oneshoot, move forward, one enemy, one shoot, move forward, open door, one enemy behind, one shoot, next door.... and more especially, when Mando is hiding from the StormTroopers in that room with lots of boxes, it has a very DOOM'ish smell (for the [elder] ones who have known DOOM, the first FPS ever).


    Third. During Mando's flashbacks, there is a scene where the little boy is sheltered by his parents, who hide him in a hole, then they close the roof above the little boy, then they kiss, then they are killed, and the boy is frightened. All of this remembered me that Rogue One scene where Li'l Jyn is also sheltered in a hole, in pretty same conditions.


    Fourth. A wink to Roswell? When TINY is on the operation table when Mado comes back to get it.


    Last but not least. I have a question: WHO CALLED THE MANDALORIANS TO COME AND RESCUE MANDO? Mando himself?

    Hi Situation Normal,

    I was thinking the same - why not wookiees or Hutts, both races are relatively long leaving, but then I realized, do you know any strong in the force wookiee or Hutt? apart from that do you want to mix your dna with a wookiee ? :)

    For that part that Anakin is made by Palpatine manipulations of the force ... well ... the force seems to be following it's own path. As Luke say "And this is the lesson. That Force does not belong to the Jedi. To say that if the Jedi die, the light dies, is vanity. Can you feel that?” Same applies to the Sith, who is Palpatine to think that the Force will follow his path and will obey to his wishes?

    No ... I think they control the space around their enclave, so they know everything that happens in the small town. I was thinking why they will risk their hideout but then ... their enclave is compromised anyway, Mando came with broken armor and few hours later was going around with a shiny new beskar armor ... this warning from the armorer was more a warning to the clan than to Mando. They knew that they cannot hide more at this place, and I guess they don't want to hide anymore, because mandalorians don't hide - they confront the enemy heads up!
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 27, 2019 ---
    Yes Kato Sai, it is hard to do the right things right. This is why we need mandalorians - somebody has to take out the hot potato by his own bare hands.

    Hilarious. I laugh to myself every time I yell "Utah! Get me two!" at my son and he looks at me like I'm crazy.

    Nope. Mando'ade showed up to help Mando. There isn’t any indicator he called them. Now, some of them may have had fobs, and when they learned it was to hunt a Mando, they geared up to rain blaster fire on the other hunters, “This is the Way!”

    Mando's gun if you are interested of course.

    And how the prop was made ( not from the same files of course ),

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3977528

    if you want to know more about the props here is Adam Savage making DL-44

    https://www.tested.com/starwars/456727-one-day-builds-han-solos-dl-44-blaster-star-wars/

    Please fans of Star Wars leave the real guns away, they are for guns collectors, make yours from plastic! It's both cheaper and helps preserve the antique weapons :D

    Thanks for the links. I especially enjoyed the history behind Mando’s side arm.

    Yes, great that you removed that profile pic of a character from The Mandalorian, but you replaced it with another character from The Mandalorian.

    Here is what I can say so far about the heavy blaster of Paz Vizla. The barrels look very much like the M2 M3M, the size seems to fit, the perforation too. There are some rails mounted along the barrel, visible in the hasbro figure, so this is covering the top and bottom holes, this way the perforation looks single row. Also I think the barrel is actually removed and this is just hollow shroud. There are rings added to put the 3 barrels together. The muzzle break is from German MG34, they used this also before for Han Solo blaster and it seems that they like it. Probably the muzzle break is machined new to match the .50 caliber barrels. If you look at the point where the barrel mates with the mechanics box you will see the holes not aligning and the different color of the barrel and what I believe is a mating adapter. This looks very much like MG34 mating, just on my picture the holes align. The mating adapters for the barrels are mounted on a triangular plate and the this plate attach to the box. The mechanics box is a kind of interesting puzzle. It looks to me like M2 box, but a bit elongated, turned with bottom to the right, the two springs inside are probably some part of internal mechanics which is exposed to make it more interesting. The charging handle seems to be mounted backside to the bracket, sticking on top of the box in normal configuration, but looking like upside down to the right side which is actually the bottom of the real machine gun. One of the backside handles is removed and the remaining back handle is definitely rotated like 90 degrees, which supports the idea that the box is rotated 90 degrees to the left. There is additional handle mounted in the middle where his left hand is, no idea where this came from, looking at its boxy design it is possible that it is custom created for the movie.
