Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Well if Boba Fett is the Clint Eastwood of Star Wars, then Cad Bane is the Lee Van Cleef. At least that is what Lucasfilm is trying to make him, after all, he is designed after him (hat and all). They literally name drop Boba Fett at least twice in every article they write on Cad Bane. Cad even sports a couple of Mandalorian looking gauntlets filled with gadgets.

Cool character? Very.
I like how ruthless he is, very out of place imo in Star Wars, and I like it.

Waste of time? Yes.
Shoulda just used young Fett.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Fett is too good for The Clone Wars. He's going to have a season entirely devoted to himself in live-action television.

EDIT: Pretty cool to have a dude based off Lee Van Cleef, Sergio Leone's "The Man With No Name" trilogy is definitely among the best western films ever.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

good call, in regards to the LVC character- which means there is only one left of the trio to be defined "the ugly".
who could be the ugly?....hmmm.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Bane looks pretty cool, very different than most SW characters. I havn't seen the episode that he is in yet. I have it recorded, I just need to get to watching it tongue

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

A Duros being badass? hard to beleive after playing KOTOR, but he seems cool.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Maybe the ugly is Durge

Cad Bane looks pretty ominous to me.

That was my thought. Duros actually... not being lame-ish, really, could this be possible? And speaking basic at that.  From the moment I saw him its obvious that hes just pulled from other characters, which have been mentioned. If i  notice it, they must be laying it on thick. But I still welcome him in CW. I was expecting on disliking him because he is so obviously based off another well respected character.... but actually enjoyed it because he actually brought some good action and threat. I think they shouldn't have wasted their time on some of those other much lamer episodes. (like perhaps that one with Jar Jar and Padame) They could have cut half of the season and used the stuff they're planning on with Cad and the series would have been better. Feels more Star Wars like. Even though Boba would have been better and greater and even more badass. But better off they didn't use Boba. Then Dave Filoni would have screwed him up and we would all be very sad.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

I liked him. He is like Boba Fett, but different enough. I was a little surprised they showed him snapping that senate commando's neck, good to see the show isn't afraid to be a little mature.

If it was too safe i'd throw up and probably not watch ever. I think the show needs MORE of this sort. More violence and action.

Plus, I'm glad to see a character who isn't a Jedi or Sith getting a bigger role... I'll take a blaster weilding rogue over them any day.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

He does look cool, but I'd have to say that Jango Fett is the Boba Fett of the Clone Era, considering they are the same genetically.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Same here, even if Boba turns out to be an improvement over Jango. Jango is the "Boba" of the clone era.

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Boba Fett is blondie, clint eastwood's the man with no name character from the film
Cad Bane is the bad, Lee van cleef's character

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

so then can we make bossk the ugly?

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Sounds right to me.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Meh, Cad Bane was not as cool as I expected and he just wasn't that ruthless. I want to see him more developed, he just seemed like a Bounty Hunter squad captain or something instead of ruthless killer.

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

I knew this would come up somewhere....
Cad Bane is a pretty kicka** bounty hunter, yet he can never measure up to the two Fetts. Remember the Clone Wars episode where he collaborated with many bounty hunters to hold the senators for ransom?? Well in my personal opinion, Boba Fett could probably do that alone. Not to mention Boba hates to split profit.

(Off subject) By the way, was that one of the official IG units in that episode???

Re: Cad Bane = Boba Fett of the Clone Era?

Ok, thanks..........I guess the Bounty Hunter Tales novel I read about all the IG's were actually non-canon. I guess they are really just tales. tongue
thanks.

But back to Cad Bane, he must be a pretty important and infamous bounty hunter of the clone wars era if he's associated with Aurra Sing. I didnt get the impression that he was a "colded-blooded killer" like some say........but he seems like an above-average, intellegent, bounty hunter with a one-time grand plan. Yet not one of the greatest. Can anyone relate? hmm
