Yeah, why not. But only in this thread please. That article about Dooku got quite... spoilerish.

The holonet article suggests that Dooku was Qui-Gon's Master at one point? Am I interpreting this correctly? I still maintain that Dooku isn't Sith and I think this info makes that a stronger argument.

Just imagine what the next Sith is! Shadowey image in the Forbidden Love trailer!!

Well, you can be a Jedi, and then a Sith, take Vader for example.

Apparently Dooku went missing for a while, maybe being converted by Palpatine? If the world knows Dooku as a Jedi, when he is really a Sith, his actions would reflect badly on the Jedi - a great way of shifting public opinion...

I agree.

Dooku is saying the same type of thing to Obi-Wan that Vader said to Luke.

I noticed that the HoloNet magazine's are going from issue 48 to issue 1. It's somewhere around 44 now and they're already saying Dooku was Qui-Gons Master. I wonder how much will be revealed by issue number 1. sad.gif

No, the issues of HNN aren't going down, they're going up. The latest one (with the Qui-Gon Dooku conection)is #48.

As for the figure at then end of the FL trailer, I have no idea who it is, but Anakin sure looks pissed off. happy.gif

I personally really like HNN. It's really cool to read, and get an idea of the political situation in the Republic. There are probably also heaps of tiny clues that us spoiler-free people haven't picked up on. It'll probably be good fun to read back over the back issues after seeing the movie and going "ohhh, wow, I missed that one."

The vast majority of Spoiled folk haven't picked up on half the clues there! Some of the info pertains to parts of the movie that hasn't been discussed in PSA but is known by some wink.gif , some of it looks like it may come from the Novel and/or the illustrated guides. An entertaining Site and not too EU so as to be dismissed lightly.

Well I like EU myself, so I also enjoy picking all the EU refernces in there (LOTS!) My fave was the one about the Incom/Subpro split, with Incom purchacing all the intelectual property and proprietry systems of the Headhunter, because those systems grew into the X-Wing!

So... what do we all think of the Super Battle Droid? Check out starwars.com -> News: Droids

Pretty cool! I like it!

Even with armor, though, you wouldn't think they'd be a match for Jedi.

But it seems, judging by the end of the Clone War trailer, that they do a number on them and have them cornered in the Arena.

Maybe more than meets the eye?

Dunno what you mean. I got the impression that they Jedi get massacred by the sheer numbers of droids there. How many blaster bolts can a Jedi deflect at once? One?

By the way, how come the droidekas didn't have shields?

I think the SBDs look cool. Much tougher looking than the bog-standard Trade Fed ones.
I imagine a skilled Jedi might be able to angle the sabre so that it catches more than one bolt on it, but it would take a lot of skill. That's why in a firefight that big it's really good that there are a lot of them. They can cover each other.

Anyone seen the pictures within the UK Empire magazine? They include:

A close up of the droid from the Jedi Fighter.
The Jedi Temple.
Obi and Anakin in the speeder.
And...




...Obi-Wan walking along a covered walkway with two of the long necked aiwas riding aliens, as clones line up below them to collect their helmets. Pretty cool (if slightly CGI in appearance) grin.gif

EDIT: and the metallic looking guy from the Homing Beacon a while ago.
