Ulic Qel-Droma by LittleFoxStudio
Ulic Qel-Droma
Third submission for the collaboration, along with Kyle and Jan.

My personal favourite character of the entire Star Wars universe. Tragic story of love, loss, betrayal, redemption.

Jan Ors by LittleFoxStudio
Jan Ors
Jan Ors. Kyle Katarn's partner in crime from the Star Wars Dark Forces and Jedi Knight series. My second contribution to the giant collaboration. This one gave me no end of trouble for two reasons. A) Kind of a boring outfit. B) Very little HD reference material for said outfit. But I think she turned out ok.

Anyway... hi. Well, the teaser for the next Star Wars movie is out and hard core fans could not be more pissed about it. XD Which I understand for the most part. Especially being a fan of the Expanded Universe, now labeled LEGENDS. That storyline has been officially removed from canon to make way for the story Lucasfilm wants to tell with the movies. Supposedly they will still borrow elements from the EU to use in the new storyline. But characters that many of us grew up reading about, playing their games, etc are for the most part never going to be seen on the big screen. Which has really driven some fans into a Disney Hate Frenzy.
I'm gonna say what I think about the trailer itself now that I've had time to watch it over and over and attempt to put things together.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMOVFv…


Firstly, there has been a HUGE storm among fans about the appearance of a black stormtrooper. Whether it's based on racism or ignorance of how Clone anatomy works, I wanna clear this up. A) Stormtroopers stopped being Jange Fett clones a LONG ASS TIME AGO by this point. They kinda ran out of fresh Jango genes after he got Maced. Even by episode 4 most of the actual clones would have been senior citizens. The Empire began recruiting normal every day people to train as Stormies, pilots, etc. B) We have no idea what this guy's story is. He might not even be a Stormtrooper, but rather using the armour as a disguise. He obviously looks panicked about something. Maybe on the run. C) My only issue with that part of the trailer was how he just popped up from nowhere, freaking out about something. Like everything else in the trailer this scene is shown to us with NO context. Also, new looking stormtrooper armour. Love the helmets. The blasters look a little too shiny, but meh. We'll see how they work out.

Secondly, the little ball droid is freaking adorable and I want one. There are MUCH weirder looking droids in the movies that make far less sense than he does.

Third, the funny looking speeder. It's Star Wars. There are thousands of different types of speeders in that universe. We've just never seen this one before. I won't be doing fanart of glory shots of it, but meh. It's a speeder. Hardly movie-wrecking material. The girl riding it? Rumour has it she's possibly Han and Leia's daughter, but we really don't know. It also looks like she's trying to get away from something.

Fourth, those X-WINGS! Looks like the new design is based much more closely on the original McQuarrie concept art. I have no problem with this. I don't think they look 30 years more advanced than the classic X-Wings. Maybe they're not. I still want a model of one. I'd have been perfectly happy just seeing those for a few seconds and have that be it for the teaser. Flying mere feet above some lake on some planet. Mountains in the background. We've never seen this before. Beautiful. Gave me shivers. I was more excited for that than I was for the Falcon. I know, I'm weird. Not a big fan on the pilot's outfit, though. The helmet and flight suit (based on the second long clip) looks cheap and almost fan made. *shrug*

Fifth, new badass Dark Side character with new badass lightsaber... sorta. This one really has fans pissing themselves. Again, we have no idea who this new villain is supposed to be. There could be dozens of explanations for the weird, crackling cross-guarded saber. Perhaps it is an ancient Sith artifact that this guy found. Maybe HE is an ancient Sith artifact. *shrug* We don't know. Some speculate it's Luke, others think it's Darth Revan (that would wire some people up) Everyone making a fuss about how impractical the weapon is and how he's gonna cut off his thumbs. I think it's safe to assume this guy KNOWS HOW TO USE HIS OWN WEAPON. XD I'm very curious to see who he turns out to be.

Lastly, the Falcon. Queue the classic John Williams score as we get a dizzying view of the most famous ship in Star Wars history apparently dogfighting TIE fighters over a desert. It looked to me like the TIE's were more of a silver colour. Though that could be a trick of the light. We don't even know if it's Han and Chewie flying it. I found it interesting that the original cast was completely left out of this teaser. Along with any space shots. Which just tells me there's a lot more work to be done in post production for this movie.

I think it's way too soon to judge if the movie will bomb or soar. Like everyone else with their speculations and accusation, we have to wait and see. Let me know what you think. Keep it civil.

I begin to know that you like the ice hockey. I begin to know that you are an out of the normal boy or young man. I do not know if you have plans to become a professional ice hockey player. You can try to practice other sports like basketball, soccer, american football, lacrosse, tennis, baseball, motocross, inline skating or skateboarding. A good idea is making a video about you and your friends playing street hockey and you and your friends could make the street hockey uniforms with a long sleeve shirt or a t-shirt or soccer style t-shirt with or without long sleeve shirt under the t-shirt or the soccer style t-shirt, the hockey gloves or the lacrosse gloves, the hockey pants and hockey socks or basketball short pants (or shorts) or sport short pants (or sport shorts) with or without basketball tights (or leggings) or sport tights (or leggings) and the inline skates and you and your friends can use the helmets, elbow pads and knee pads similar to the helmets, elbow pads and knee pads used by bikers and/or skaters and/or skateboarders, the ice hockey chest protections or the motocross armors under the long sleeve shirts if uses the long sleeve shirts or the t-shirts or soccer style t-shirts with the long sleeve shirts under the t-shirts or the soccer style shirts, the padded short pants (or padded shorts) that are used by some skaters and/or skateboarders under the pants if uses basketball short pants (or shorts) or sport short pants (or sport shorts) with or without basketball tights (or leggings) or sport tights (or leggings) and the ice hockey shin guards under the hockey socks or basketball tights (or leggings) or sport tights (or leggings) or soccer shin guards under the basketball tights (or leggings) or sport tights (or leggings) (and the basketball ankle protections under the socks).
