thank heaven for Youtube!!!

Same thing for this one.  The guy even writes to the side " Here is one version of the two I did."

Plus, it's got Superman music to it, dude.

It actually says on the site, though, that it's just a fan movie trailer, not the actual movie trailer.

Hopefully, it will not turn out bad like the other marvel movies. The Spiderman movies are goin on pretty strong, dont wanna mess it up now, especially since theres NO VENOM YET!!


Isn't Venom supposed to be in this film?  That's why he has the black suit.


Freaky, he even had the same shirt as Sandman.  Nice touch.

At least they didn't keep the white armor...

I kind of liked the white armor.  He was originally supposed to be an Imperial Bounty Hunter.  I still hope they come out with a figure of this, like they did with the Ralph McQuarrie Concept Stormtrooper figure.

The Bounty Hunter wars were done really well.  I like how the author included a lot of info from Tales of the Bounty Hunters, between Fett and Dengar.  Kind of ties a lot of stuff together.

He didn't lose his leg in the Sarlaac.  It had just started to digest it a little, so later on, it probably got very infected or had severe muscle damage.  That's why he did the bounty on that Devaronian guy, The Butcher of Montellian Serat.  That way, he could pay to have a new leg cloned for him.  However, when he returned to Kamino to have his bad leg replaced, the Kaminoan cloner he saw—his old associate, Taun We—remembering the Mandalorian attacks on Kamino during the Clone Wars, asked Fett to hunt down the last surviving Mandalorian responsible.  Fett hunted down Fenn Shysa (Mandalore, at the time) on the planet of Shogun.  The details of the encounter are unknown, but Shysa met his death—not at Fett's hands, but, ironically, through saving Fett from an unknown threat.

I kind of liked cracking skulls with the pistol, during online gaming matches.

I like how they added more Stormtroopers into the Special Edition.  Just makes the expression on his face, all that more funny.

He did.  He got him and delivered him to Darth Vader and then Jabba the Hutt.  But after Han's escape, I guess he just had the luck of the Irish with him.

Yeah, it does kind of hurt your fingers doing it the old fashioned way.  I just usually zoom up on them, center them in the sites, switch to pistols without moving the targeting reticle, then fire away from a distance.  You can still take them out from farther away.  It just takes a little longer is all.

I like the Ipod pic.  Pretty neat.

You can always sign up for the romantic Foreign Legion.


They still have that over there, don't they?

I think I would've made Bounty Hunter a little more like Star Wars Galaxies when it comes to hunting prey.  Something that would still effect the story line, but you get to pick your own way of capturing the bounty.

I sent an email to the Karen Traviss Yahoo Groups to see if they know of anywhere online, where it might be, okay?  Who knows, Ms. Traviss is on there often, so she might know of something.  I'll let you know if I find anything, Daenna.  Later.

I know there was some story about Vader killing a group of Commando's, because they refused to kill their Jedi General.  I think it's in the book "The Rise of Darth Vader."  I'll have to wait until my wife can ship that to me out here, so I can read it.

It's a cool book and the story is great. That part where the commando's are being killed isn't actually written (we don't see them die, so to me it doesn't happen  tongue)

BTW, I'd like to know if any of you have got the Insider issue with Odds in it. You know I live in France so I can't get SW Insider here.... Anyone care to send a scan, please? I'd be much much grateful smile

My scanner is boxed up in storage while I'm out here in Mississippi.  Otherwise I'd hook you up.  I'll see what else I can find, though.  The one thing I did like about the story was a pic of the Commando's in their black stealth armor and Kal Skirata in his Mandalorian armor.  The artist makes him look a lot more like Ed Harris, as opposed to his pic in "Targets."


"Targets" Kal

"Odds" Kal

Oh, that takes place at the battle of Geonosis, from Episode II.  His squad is briefly mentioned at the beginning of the Republic Commando game.  Delta Squad was asking Darman's squad if they could hurry it up, or something to that effect.  They're the squad that blow the doors open at the beginning of the game, that are already open for you when you fast-rope out of the LaaT gunship.  It's setting the stage for the formation of Omega squad, who are all made up of squads that got tore up pretty bad at Geonosis, because the Jedi's didn't know how to deploy them properly.  They were deployed like regular infantry, instead of Spec Ops, so they had heavy losses in a lot of squads because of that.  Omega Squad is made up of Commando's who were the sole survivors of their prior squads.

Hard Contact is the first book of the series.  Then, if you go chronologically, the short story called "Targets," then Triple Zero, then the short story called "Odds."

However, instead of having to get the Star Wars Insider issue that has "Targets" in it, it's included in the back of the Triple Zero book.  You might want to read it before the actual Triple Zero story, though, because they make reference to some of the events in the book.

Yes, it certainly is.  I'm used to those Wyoming summer's now, and this Mississippi heat and humidity is freakin' killing me.  As the man once said:

"I didn't think it was going to be this hot.  Man, it's hot.  It's like Africa hot.  I don't think Tarzan could take this kind of hot."
--Jerome (Matthew Broderick) (upon getting off the bus, in the movie "Biloxi Blues")

I've seen it before, where's it from?

It was from that Star Wars Insider article about the Mandalorians and their culture, that Karen Traviss wrote.  Good stuff.  I forget off the top of my head who did the illustrations, but I can find out for you, if you want.

Are they the Visual Guides to....., that were all put out after the respective movies came out?  Those are pretty nice.  We got some close-up shots of Fett's gear from those books.

Is there anywhere that actually shows a picture of what an Ubese looks like without their masks on?  I've seen this pic, but how canon is this?


I like the DC-17's that the Commando's use.   Simplicity and multi-functionality, all in one weapon.

Cool.  Very good find, Mel.

I don't know if I'd want it to take place around the time of the movies, though.  Part of the charm is that it's set so far back into the past.  Another part of the fun is discovering all the past "tie-ins" it kind of tips its' hat to.  Like that of Bendak Starkiller (Starkiller being the name originally intended for Luke), Cassus Fett (ancestor to Jango and Boba), Darth Revan actually wearing a Mandalorian mask of the Mandalore he killed, the sword of Bacca (presumably one of Chewbacca's ancestor's), and so forth.    I think that's one of the reasons they decided to do the Tales of the Jedi comic (which is around the same time frame at K.O.T.O.R., give or take a decade or two, and was the basis for the game), set so far back into the past.  At the time Dark Horse published the series, it was during pre-production of the first three movies and there was too many things John Ostrander couldn't do because of continuity.  However, setting it so far into the past, it kind of leaves everything open, but still has all the elements that make Star Wars so enduring over the ages.  The fact they had Mandalorians just made it all the more great for me, but I'm biased, as I think we all are, in that regard.  What's even better is that they now have the K.O.T.O.R.  comic which takes place before the games (Taris is still intact).  It's set during the Mandalorian War.  Mandalorians everywhere.  Good stuff.

You know, talking about all this makes me want to actually finish playing the first game.  I'm still only half-way through, I think.  I'm at that point where I get captured by that Admiral that use to be the commanding officers of the smuggler in your crew.  It was just one of those games I didn't want to stop playing, you know?  Kind of like Final Fantasy.  I think it's finally time to finish it.  Then I can move on to the second one.


Anyway, I think the series is better set in the past.  Anyone else agree or disagree?

The off topic topic would be easier to moderate, I think.  It could be put in the FANS section of the boards.  We used to have a chat room a long time ago.  Every time I would log on there, though, there was never anyone on it.  It was one of those types you could log on to anytime of the day.  However, for more participation, we could have certain times where it is set aside for a particular group discussion or something of the like.
