Loved the season finale! I was truly sad to see IG-11 die (yes, I know he's not technically alive but it still hurt). I really hope they introduce another IG unit next season although it will have some big (driod) shoes to fill.

I felt more for the end of IG-11 and Kulil than Luke in ep8.  FU RJ !!!

The succinct Kurosawa-esque man-comes-to-town vignettes proved less dialogue is more.  To wit: They waited till chapter 8 to provide character exposition (names, pre-ROTJ backstories) that Lucas would've shat out of the mouth of C3PO the second R2 asked who they were at first meeting. 

There is deliberate, trusting patience being shown in the audience here.  It was astounding and redemptive.  A+.

Considering that Season 7 of Clone Wars is focused on the Seige of Mandalore and that Filoni is heavily involved in both shows, I'm hoping for some easter eggs that tie into Mandalorian to show up.


I don’t know if it was confirmed, but I think the Mandos who rescued him as a child in the flashback were Death Watch before Maul’s take over. If so, we’re certain to see some type of tie in with Clone Wars.

I agree with this so much. We are a "we want it now" media society. The slow drip is such a good payoff. Your last line is very well stated.

Also says 4-5 day shipping.  No way it'll be in time for Christmas.  Got a pre-order placed anyway.  Man, it's only February, I feel like I did when I pre-ordered Lego Forma.  Let the waiting begin.

you call that news? Baby Yoda brickheadz is available on EU shop for preorder now.. - I have never seen such a delayed delivery "will be delivered by August 1 - in 6 months).

interesting title of the listed item : "75317 tbd-IP-LSW-Extra1" .. so is there going to be also Extra 2?

"...we received our first bit of major Mandalorian news in months: Rosario Dawson is set to play the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano..."

Personally I think that is awesome.

However, considering filming has been completed for a few weeks now, I have to wonder if she only shows up at the end of Season 2, cliffhanger style, and we won’t see her in action until Season 3.
