Thread Question: Was Boba ever actually cool?

>Was Boba ever actually cool?
He always looked cool, but he was pretty quickly overdone as "The Best Bounty Hunter EVAR"

He was pretty cool in ESB but utterly jobs in ROTJ. I think the new canon is fleshing him out a bit more to be the cool bounty hunter he should've been. Unfortunately, Cad Bane will always be cooler than Boba Fett.
>>
Is Legion gonna do an older Mando Boba like Luke?

Boba and the bounty keyword could use the help, and people would eat the model up.

Sort of. He was a neat side character in ESB with a neat design, but he wasn't that important and got offed like a chump because of it. I don't know why the various extended universe writers and fandom wanked him so much. Though I suppose that happened to every single character in the background because of how incestuous and intertwined the Star Wars universe is, so it was probably inevitable. He was pretty cool in Mando S2 even though I tend to hate the major cameos.

When he walked he made spur sounds despite being a sci-fi bounty hunter with a space ship who didn't wear spurs.

The same could be asked of Maul and Grievous.

Grievous was never cool. Asthmatic robot with funny voice and a cape, who runs like a crab.
Dooku was never cool. Old man Dracula in space!
Maul was cool and is still cool, and every iteration of him was cool.
>>
>>80405225
Yes
>>
>>80405371
Maul was cool for a few minutes before he got broken in half by a padawan. Grievous was cool during his episodes in Tartakovsky Clone Wars and some of his Dark Horse comic appearances, though getting his torso crushed by Mace Windu put an end to his ability to be cool.

I like when Grevious genocided the night sisters, and his incarnation in the old cartoon was cool. That’s about it, luckily his legion rules reflect his 2D self

like a lot of legion stats, he seems to be a composite of his "cowardly pragmatist" from the movies and TCW and "breakdancing murder bot" from genndywars

he wont match obi-wan blow for blow, and low courage means he will eventually be forced to run, but he is extremely fast and versatile
so he is actually better than obi-wan at shredding infantry balls and sniping lone enemies
>>
>>80405740
>>80405744
2D clone wars grievous sequence was a good animation showcase, but otherwise shit. Yeah, this robot can take on three Jedi High Council masters at the same time without breaking a sweat. I totally believe you. What a shameless attempt to market this new ebin villain, and Lucas changed his characterization anyway, so 2d ended up being inaccurate.
I didn't care about him in 3D one, but at least he was consistent, and he could be funny at times. But I would never consider him cool. I just don't see what's cool about him, even in theory. Being a mustache twirling flash gordon serial villain unironically works better for this coughing robot with a funny voice and big cape.

he is pretty close to commander luke in how you are supposed to use him
he gets spanked 1v1 with jedi masters, but he is really good at destroying corps and tanks

but can still lay the hurt on jedi masters with proper use of timing, which is kind of a realistic way a very strong but unpolished apprentice could defeat a powerful master
wait for them to tire out and waste resources attacking something else then "last-first" them to drain their HP before they counte-attack

opluke is the real "unga-bunga" unit
while you really need to play him smart and have a plan to use him at his peak to single handedly remove the enemy army, he is probably the only unit in the game where you can "jump, charge, stab" at the enemy and still get results

its hard to top Cad Bane when he's basically just a villain from a spaghetti western. The guy is a mexican vaquero but blue.
>he needs to pick up smoking, pg rating be damned

>>80404533
they took the visible concern the show cast had dealing with him and escalated it way, way, way more than needed. He was the near-silent bad guy, never needing to justify himself with words so much as just operating as a badass looking guy. Had they said "Boba Fett is the best bounty hunter in this sector" it probably would have given writers a greater thing to write about instead of putting him on an unassailable pedestal.

>>80404777
Trips confirm, Boba the Accountant has a tax droid service so Boba really only "works" on taxes during the heavy season, and moonlights as a bounty hunter in between Imperial Tax Season: You-Have-Been-Randomly-Audited-for-the-Eighth-Time Boogaloo

>>80405225
give more soak and hp

>>80405912
it seems that it all is affixed to the black space suit stuff underneath. I would presume that the panel armor affixes, perhaps via some sorta velcro-like material or friction pad, maybe even an extreme low voltage device that fixes it in place that can be turned off to remove it. Or some sorta sliding rail, so a given panel only comes off if they are slid off specifically in a certain way, and only if certian other panels are slid off first. Except for the magical red pull strap that yeets all the armor off.

>>80406103
Even the nemoidians would be distinct as "space robber-barons" and be pretty clearly evil.

Imperial Tax Season must be terrifying if Boba Fett himself might burst through your skylight, hold you at gunpoint and insist on seeing your receipts.

Legion minis are un-assembled, starting with the Clone Wars releases they started using hard plastic sprues that need plastic nippers. Most of the Rebel and Empire stuff is baggies with pre-cut soft plastic that needs to just be glued together

The post clone wars era I mostly figure on having a lot of Republic space carpet baggers, the dudes 'friendly' to Palp's going in and just wholesale looting and pillaging the former CIS holdings of every nut, bolt and penny they have squirreled away.
After that comes a new oligarchy taking over those assets

That would kind of make sense. The Mandalorian shows briefly in the first episode that Din's pauldrons are attached to this electrical looking underpart that's attached to the suit. Was as simple as just putting the new Beskar pauldron on there. Was hoping there'd be some official schematics though. They got em for ships & lightsabers.
>>
>>80406492
What are you talking about, anon? Honorable Peacelord Zsinj is a totally loyal and compliant taxpayer. He's simply a regular shareholder of the incredibly profitable corporations owned by his friends, S. Amaris and B. Harkonnen, both of whom are totally not him and currently on extended vacation in the Unknown Regions.

Might be the same principle as a renaissance arming doublet, it just has all the attachments for plates, pauldrons and stuff to be tied on. Or in the case of mandalorian armour it could even be localised magnets and patches that hold the beskar onto the underclothes- it is an iron after all

The OG Core Set is all soft plastic, so glue is all you need, might want to get a hobby knife to scrape the mold lines.

It'd have to be magnets or a velcro like adhesive on the bodysuit. Whenever clones are shown without their armor on in the animated shows, it's just a blank black bodysuit. Now for mandalorians I'd have to guess it's part electronic attachments to the clothing & an adhesive like the clones.

To be real though, a fair number of badass type people died to really stupid things. Plenty of Alexander the Great death stories basically involve him either
>dying of malaria, something you too can experience with a $2000 flight to Africa and a night outside (preferably while chasing an Arms dealer)
>dying of wounds/infected wounds
>partying with his concubines + alcohol + malaria
>the above, but not with malaria

Genghis Khan either fell off his horse for literally no reason or his horse got shot, with not a consistent record on what happened. As far as we know the guy just got Christopher Reeve'd

>>80406550
I imagine the Imperial Tax bureau office is run like the Pentagon where it's mostly offices, but there is an insane amount of security everywhere. Add on spookiness stuff like the offices being silent and cold and plain, since it's mostly just droids everywhere doing their labor in silence. Or it's the Navigators from TLJ.

Yeah you can make it as high or low tech as you want really, all the way up to little micro switches that grip/release when told to do so or a self-tightening webbing that latches onto the arming points... all the way down to simple straps, buckles and velcro for your basic entry level tech- or a combo of both either as a work in progress or field repair

In the case of mando armour, there does appear to be pockets in the outer layers, which might in of itself serve as something of light impacts, shock and fire resistance, so arming points could be attached into the under-layers out of sight and given some protection where they're exposed from under the plate

Wishes/predictions for the three new previews coming this friday? Given the limited information on the ships, the rules team could have gotten creative with them.
I'm sort of wishing the BTA-NR2 is a more agile ship than its predecessors, at the cost of some hull. Maybe also a stronger gun, since apparently they aren't always carrying ordnance anymore?
It'll also be interesting to see how they differentiate the whisper from the other two interceptor-type ships (but oh god why does the first order need a THIRD of them?) Considering that "better TIE/in" is already filled by the silencer.
The FO bomber I have no idea what they might do other than a TIE/sa with a shield.

grievous and obi-wan are dealing roughly the same damage to each other, so hypoethically if you locked them in a cage to fight grievous would win

but grievous doesnt have any force powers, so obi-wan can benefit from staples like force push or force
grievous command cards are also not very good for dueling, while hello there gives obi-wan a token of his choice and nimble for a turn or use K&D to collect loads of dodges
so obi-wan will really kick his ass unless grievous gets the drop on obi-wan

in 1v1 engagements, vader can slap anyone short of dooku or opluke in fight
he has trouble dealing in many vs many engagements due to his slow speed

he isn't the most competitive choice, but still viable if you know what you are doing
unlike unga bunga opluke, vader does poorly if played badly, so you need to think of him more like a slow moving landmine the enemy cannot approach rather than a guided lightsaber missile like his son

Haven't seen Solo, don't care to honestly.

Rogue One isn't bad but it's not great. There's potential, everything to do with the Battle on Scarif is cinematography gold, while the earlier sections are downright mediocre at worst to a somewhat lukewarm good at best. Saw Gerrera was great though. The characters themselves were all pretty good, even if the over all plot felt a bit shoehorned. There's a good film buried under the dross but it unfortunately will never live up to its full potential due to editorial decisions beyond the control of the director, from what I've heard.

Frankly, the seasonal shows are better than any of the other offerings Disney has put out and I think they've come to realize that.

for command, aggressive tactics used to be mandatory, but it got bumped to 15, so its no longer an auto take
strict orders to manage suppression is useful, but droids dont get suppressed
the gun can be useful, many lists took the gun, but it isnt mandatory
>So far I’ve figured out that moving him last is helpful.
and you can do that easily since you tend to out-activate your opponent
having grievous end his turn engaged with an enemy unit means they cant easily shoot him off and the infamous last-first maneuver allows for seriously strong alpha (if you didnt know, play your 3 or 4 pip to go last and whack someone, then use the 1-pip after to get a second whack before they can react)

I'd hope for slightly better shields, and config cards to represent the ship being customised for speed/agility or heavy weapons loadout. It may have a ship ability meaning turrets can't rotate forwards, but having a Veteran Turret Gunner style effect.

I'm not going to bother detailing the tactical and contextual reasoning behind why Grievous managed to defeat so many Jedi again, considering how it's something that has been repeated ad nauseam here and the actual show did both by demostrating it in action and through an actual exposition dump via Dooku, but yes; even going off conceptually, having the opportunity to showcase how non-Force users can potentially become reasonable threats to Jedi by taking the idea of cybernetic enhancements to the extreme and mastering the use of unorthodox tactics, is something incredibly interesting, both for the visual possibilities for the sake of spectacle and how this can tie thematically to the fall of the Jedi Order and whatnot.
If you can't find him interesting or threatening, well, that's on you. Just don't try to pretend there's a logical justification to back that up when it's a judgement that depends on a totally personal bias.

New to legion, trying to build an CIS army, does the BX droid vibroblade weapon upgrade allow the unit to still shoot if they wish? Or are they strictly just a melee unit if you give them the upgrade?
>>
>>80412226
It just adds one model with that weapon
>>
>>80412282
>>80412226
This answer is incorrect.

The Vibroswords upgrade grants every model in the squad that weapon, as if it was an additional weapon on their stat card. Otherwise, it doesn't change anything. Just a better melee dice pool.

Anon is confusing it with heavy weapon models, but the Vibroswords is a weapon upgrade not a model.
>>
>>80412226
see: >>80412454

the BXs can choose to use either the gun or the sword
additionally, any heavy weapon you take will have access to the sword

So that makes sense, the BX's can move and then shoot, and in the next turn move, charge with their upgrade melee

Why were people even hyped for Star Wars 1313? Looked like a generic linear third person "cinematic" action game to me.
>>
>>80413621
It was pitched as a more open RPG shooter, kinda like Mass Effect 2 but all set on one planet, right at the time when the memory of ME was still fresh but there was a derth of that kind of game and good SW content in general.
>>
>>80413621
Because the market hadn't been saturated with 3rd person shooter games at the time and because star wars as an IP was considered to be a stamp of quality when it came to games.

Then the dark times came, the times of the mouse.

The chicken and Peter (in this series Han Solo) have been enemies since the series started.

It also was sort of a set-up for a weird meta anti-joke. We knew the chicken was Boba Fett, we knew every time Peter encountered the chicken it leads into a long drawn-out fight scene, so we all assumed we were getting a sequence where Han Solo fights the chicken across the Bespin skyline.

Then when they're finally in the room together Han just laughs at how they made the chicken Boba Fett.

Genndywars is one of the best storyboarded cartoons of it's era, nothing wrong with growing up thinking it's kino.

Filoni's problem is that he feels he needs to cater to the kid demographics and caves in one or two times per season. I think Lucas encouraged it too.

>>80417286
>>80416879
Genndy is all flash and no substance. That's not credit for being stylized; the animation frequently loops either literally or else functionally identical animation repeats the previous scene. It's like a bad anime in that regard, it's full of "empty" action where nothing happens and the stakes are zero. For how short it is, that's unforgivable.
>>
>>80417682
>Genndy is all flash and no substance.
Which was exactly what he was commissioned to do.
>>
>>80417735
I disagree, but I think I'm explaining myself poorly.

The show is at its best during visually striking moments, where color and framing are allowed to play on the screen. That's cool and good! The problem it suffers from is that its action sequences (which are the bulk of its runtime) are *repetitive*. A character slashes left, then right, then left again, and nothing has happened and the two characters reset. When it happens once whatever, twice it becomes noticeable, but it's constant - every action scene has like 50% raw dead weight, which robs the action of its punch, drags down the stakes, and makes scenes uninteresting. Fights feel stretched out for runtime, which again, is insane for how short it is.

The clearest explanation I can give is the anime comparison - it's like how a manga will have a character throw a punch and beat the bad guy, but that's too short for the anime, so they add in five extra shots of the characters blocking each other to kill time.
>>
>>80410535
>solo
The roughly 40-60 second transition to Mimban, mud troopers and range troopers, Enfys Nest theme and fat TIE were cool. Rest was forgetable. Decraniated are a fun concept and I like them being in Star Wars, look dumb though.
>R1
Death Troopers, tank trooper, shore troopers, space battle and Vietnam Star Wars was cool. Rest was similarly forgetable.
All in all, some cool thinks to lift for gaems but ultimately whatever, at least not offensively bad like the ST.
>>
>>80417862
>A character slashes left, then right, then left again, and nothing has happened and the two characters reset
It's intended. The animation is expressionistic n nature.

You noticed that but you didn't notice the literal thousands of starfighters doing beelines, the jedi being gokus or the 50 artillery pieces firing in a perfect square?

The action simply isn't important to the intended meaning of each scene. Genndy was told "Make anakin change to his EP 3, introduce these characters, make the jedi seem like badasses, portray clones at war" and that's exactly what he did.

You expected EP 1 saber fights. real life choreography on a highly abstracted piece of animation.

As I was going to say in >>80418165, Genndywars has no real excuse to be as dull and ugly as it is considering. I remember watching the Ventress vs Anakin fight and I just remember it annoying me, there's no cool choreography or sequences, it's just a couple people bashing lightbats for a few minutes with an occasional reprieve by way of a force jump or somebody throwing an object.

I then watched a fight from AtLA and my god the difference was night and day, a bunch of very characterful choreohraphy making clear and intelligent use of the powers they have rather than just having people waving bats at each other.

Genndywars is overrated, ugly and you might as well watch AtLA instead, which coincidentally is also a show that ol' David Filonus worked in before TCW happened.

Not funny, but I think, right at the end of the Empire parody, they snuck in 3d models of the Moldy Crow and E-Wing and I think maybe the Outrider behind the Nebulon B. So... technically those ships are disney canon (well, I think they are anyway through other means, but they're there.)

Ok, take a moment to think this through

You are basically saying "I'm tired of BAD rule of cool, can't wait to watch GOOD rule of cool!"

I love AtLA too but they are entirely different themes and concepts to Genndy. I mean, you are trying to criticize the dude that made his career making 2d minimalism and expressionism in cartoon for being too minimalist and expressionist? What were you expecting?

>>80418373
>Genndywars has no real excuse to be as dull and ugly as it is
Criminally shit taste. You greatly overstate how long the lightsaber duels involve blades simply clashing. They're constantly jumping around, slipping out of sight, and repositioning with very short moments of just blocking and parrying. Even then, the simple sword dueling is akin to old school swordfighting movies where it's meant to push the two characters into a new part of the environment for a new setpiece. They aren't just "bashing blades" either, since Genndy's direction and art style has them snap between dynamic poses quickly. At least you recognize how well ATLA is done, so you're not completely braindead. You still know nothing about animation, Namefag.
>>
>>80418877
>desu it's only one grievous fight. One fantastic fight but only out of of a dozen

The fight with the worst filler is Anakin vs Ahsoka, although Yoda vs droids is a close second and everything Windu does is dubious (those are the worst episodes by far).

AtLA is styled more after kung fu movies than shonen anime, down to hiring kung fu masters as consultants. Hence they have that same sort of rhythm where the fighting will pause for a moment to let the viewer catch up to what's going on.

you totally can, so you can still ping for 2W at R3 all day if the enemy refuses to get within charge range

on a related note, rebel pathfinders will also always have their 2W rifle mode gun, so whether you have long or short range mode installed they can still hit hard at range 3
and bistan can use it if he exhausted his cannon

this also implies bistan is just a badass who can carry the A-300 rifle as a secondary for his ion cannon

R1 is pretty bad ngl, the only good part of is Scarrif, but everything before is pretty bad, and the Vader hallway scene is pure nostalgia bait. The story it tells itself isn't good or coherent, it fucks up the entire canon timeline, and it doesn't really set-up or add anything relevant or interesting to the setting.

I reckon these are pretty damn cool, its not space-fightin cool, but its got some really fucking good sensors, a laboratory, ok guns, some decent room aboard it and its comparatively cheap
Not exactly fast, but some tinkering will get her going along ok.
Maybe it was a former mining contractor that went broke and needed some cash to get out of trouble or its Uncle Bobs old truck that he used to go looking for minerals in or charting courses.

Concept: R1 isn't canon, it's actually post Episode VI war holofilm since the real story about how Princess Leia got the Death Star plans doesn't make for a good film. Since (as per the radio drama) all she did was park the Tantive next to an unsecured wifi connection and distract the local Imperial Governor whilst it downloaded in the background for 20 minutes.

What about the story about how it was an entire unit of former clone-troopers?
Plus that still works because the plans have to be sent to that planet first. So they've got to come from somewhere.

Of course it would've made things harder to show in some cases, but damn.
For all intents and purposes, SW is practically hard sci-fi, if not fully, lightsaber original design included, and yet.
Also, have we ever seen stormtroopers fully retreat en masse?

Anon, whatever definition you are using for "hard sci-fi" is not the traditional one.

It usually refers to internal consistency, which Star Wars does not have even from one scene to the next, let alone on a wider scale. I'm not sure if there's a name for what you're specifically describing (near-future inspired technology?), but Star Wars is just wearing those things as clothes, it treats them as pure technobabble.
>>
>>80428298
Amusing, indeed.
But seriously, I stumbled upon a site once, as I thought about creating a lightsaber (and ended up making a different concept), with a 2005 or so interview from original art people from OT and PT, their idea of lightsaber, supposedly was using a solid material from isle of stability, that would increase in size when exposed to radiation and electricity, and produce a solid humming blade with hard core.
Couldn't find it since. There was a specific diagram there, too, though it was obviously made in paint or some such.
>>
>>80428322
Maybe.
If I recall correctly, sci-fi in general explores implications and effects of products of science on civilization, while hardness is in regards to a given civilization technological level.
The problem with such approach, is that while people who don't understand what they're looking at, or avoid thinking about it, complain about impossibilities and dismiss things as "magic", an inventor sees all of those things just as real as everything else, so that which appears poorly defined to some people, to a knowledgeable one is an actual idea that works, a design, or a blueprint.
>>
>>80428479
Though naturally, that depends on an inventor as well.
That said, there are, how do I put this, worrying implications.
>>
>>80428479
All I'm saying is that there is a difference in the definition of terms between you and your audience; which will result in unproductive communication.

I mean unless all you wanted to do was complain about the Empire in the OT being Saturday morning cartoon henchmen levels of threat, in which case whatever.

Nigger what the shit are you talking about? If it's that Mandalorian episode I agree if you there, but if you're talking about the Death Star(s) then it's a better idea to blow 'em up than it is to capture them.

NTA but TVTropes is populated mostly by pseudo types who think they're geniuses for having entry-level awareness of basic storytelling conventions.

The Rebel base was generously a few thousand. Actually clearing the ENTIRE Death Star would make Stalingrad like a minor firefight in a favela by comparison. You'd need a war machine rivaling the US in WW2 in peak "the government is making jukebox companies manufacture guns" mode to even try, and it'd probably take actual weeks as different blocks were seized, fortified, broken out of/into, etc.

You'd run into situations like
>engineering hall A6 is captured by the rebels, but imperial EOD rigged up a bomb on the transformer and it went off so now all of sector Epsilon Nine is in blackout mode and the doors are out
>the rebels captutred hangar 113 and are trying to shoot through the wall via captured AT-AT to break into armory 963
>imperial sappers discharged the entire contents of the wastewater tank into the hallway leading to communications and its currently electrified with 100,000 volts a la Sadam Hussein vs Iran
>the security checkpoint by turbolift shaft 17 has changed hands 9 times in the last day
>rebel "Dog" company just got fucking lost because their datapad with the prints broke and theyve wandered about 9km from where they are supposed to be and its literally a 120km sphere

All that ignoring the fact that probably no rebel team could even keep it running or operate it once captured
