What's amazing about it, is that LFL had a shortage of stormtrooper armor, and they put out a call to the 501st Fan Costume Club, who not only had stormtrooper armor to spare, Dave Filoni said that the 501st provided themselves as extras because their armor was of cinematic quality.... which is high praise.

While I really liked Rogue One, I will be reserving judgment on the Cassian Andor show.

On the other hand, The Mandalorian looks quite literally AMAZING!!! The price for Disney+ has been confirmed to be $6.99/month, and the entire season will be dropping at one time.....on November 12th.

I'm not too excited about The Mandalorian but I definitely want to check it out. Kathleen Kennedy indicated it had an epic scale. I am intrigued.

Nice!

Wait a sec, what's that First Order trooper doing standing in there with the rest of those Empire stormtroopers? One of these things is not like the others...

That's easy: This is a unit in transition. They don't have the resources to upgrade all the armor at once so you're just seeing what that Imperial unit could afford.

Ok, where's my NO-PRIZE? Laughing

Someone really needs to have a word with the quartermaster, then...preferably someone not named Kylo Ren.
