    A quick Google search reveals MOCs of all of those except the Fang Fighter

    I get the disappointment in the end of Season 3 by some, but at the same time, I grew up with The Holiday Special, The Ewok Adventure, [the other Ewok TV movie - too lazy to bother looking it up], and the Ewoks and Droids cartoons. Contrast those to what we have now! I think every episode of The Clone Wars and Rebels, even the 'poor' few, is a masterpiece in comparison, and I rejoice in all of them! Here's hoping for a great Season 4!

    @sonsofsceva it was Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. Yes most of those were bad, but some people had to grow up during the prequels. Thankfully I'm not one.

    Rebels fans, which Star Wars: Rebels vehicle and starfighter deserved to be in a LEGO set?


    Fenn Rau's Fangfighter.




    Let me know OK?
    I wouldn't mind seeing this ship in full minifig scale as a Lego set with several Mandalorian minifigs all with unique helmet, body, leg prints, and different coloured jet-backpacks. There are plenty to choose from: Fenn Rau of course!; Sabine Wren; her brother; her mom; Gar Saxon etc.; and some generic Mandalorian warrior(s).

    In the cartoon the ship offers room to several people onboard (don't know how many), and I would love it if, when TLG ever released this ship (again) as a set, it won't be a one-man seater fighter craft, but has space and seats for three or four minifigs onboard.

    @bandit778
    Thanks, but I already facepalmed myself. No, but really thanks. When I did google it wookipedia popped up with an 'executor class star-destroyer', and book six of an X-Wing series being called 'Iron Fist' too. Still I was right in assuming Sumolego referred to something else, and since Sumo is nuts about Marvel (among other things) I just went with that.

    Anyway back on-topic.
    Looking back on this third season, I have to conclude other than Kallus as one of the informants using the codename Fulcrum being uncovered, and Maul dying a shitty death, absolutely nothing has progressed from the events at the end of season two. I feel a bit miffed about this season. None of the main characters were further developed, except for Sabine, from the point of last season's finale. This season sorely lacked consistency.
    I disagree on "nothing happened". However, the only thing that did happen was the episode with Mon Mothma. Best of the season in my opinion.
    I did not write that 'nothing happened' but that "nothing has progressed". Let me try to explain what I meant be that. I feel that although I enjoyed watching this third season, it is not on par with the first two seasons, as this third season lacks consistency, and the writers did not continue to develop most of the main characters of the show (Ezra, Kanan, Sabine, Hera, Chopper, Zeb, and Kallus). Good storytelling involves setting up an 'arc', which entails both plot development, and characters that develop, are subject to change and evolve. In my opinion little transpired in season three compared to the previous two seasons. They also introduced a 'new' villain in this season, the master tactician Grand Admiral Thrawn, but instead of focussing on these eight characters and overall plot development for the series as a whole, about half of all the episodes of this third season are stand alone stories that did not contribute much or anything at all to the larger scheme of events moving the story forth towards ultimately the film 'Rogue One' and SW trilogie part IV 'A New Hope'. I do not know if Disney will develop plans to continue the series Rebels beyond that point in the SW lore/universe, in case not, season four will probably be the final season. Ezra is the same age as Luke, and he, just like Kanan at some point, must meet his end if Luke (and Leia) are truely the last 'of their kind' (force sensitive beings with the potential to become Jedi at that point in time in the SW universe). But Kanan other than finding Bendu, and teaching Sabine some skills and insights when she acquired her 'dark lightsabre' did not serve much purpose in this season. In my opinion the writers did not utilize Kanan enough. During the last episode of this season Kanan says that he has taught Ezra everything he thinks he could, as he himself because of order 66 had been limited to learn more. Ezra is being put in charge several times by Hera, yet every time he acts reckless and irresponsible, without it having much or any consequence nor him learning much from it. The growth of his character was stuck during this season too, whereas I wonder what purpose Kanan still serves. Hera becomes very important as an ace pilot and rebel leader, yet after the episode featuring her father and the attack on her home world they (the writers) neglected to continue to do anything important with her character, and she essentially became like Sato; a supporting character in the background. These kind of things do not help establish a good plot with high suspense, and also make it more difficult for the audience to identify with the protagonists of the series. At the same time did the new villain Thrawn turn out not to be as brilliant and villainous as I hoped. Season three did not life up to the hype they created about it, and that is a bit of a shame, and that is why I feel that things did not progress enough.

    My biggest problem with the rebels line is the lack of variety. If you have to include another ezra include one of his disguises!  
    Here's my ezra as cadet and imperial DROID Chopper (domes not perfect but only black printed one available ).

    With the recent freemaker adventures series 2 trailer showing Hera from rebels alive around the time of Empire and many saying it's not canon, the new roughly given news for Forces of Destiny tells us Hera is still alive at the Battle of Endor (I think it was confirmed these are canon). 


    "Each adventure in Forces of Destiny will take place at a different point in the franchise’s timeline. Leia’s stories will see her battling the Empire in previously unseen adventures, such as a daring fight on Hoth against a ferocious Wampa and an Endor-set battle that sees her teaming up with Hera. Rey’s stories will mostly be set on Jakku, though there’s one that will see her taking charge on the Millennium Falcon. There is no word yet on what adventures Jyn will get up to, or what queen-turned-senator Padme Amidala’s stories will show. These bite-sized episodes are designed to stand alone and serve as introductory points to the series for a younger audience."

    I don't recall who said it, but someone explained The Freemaker Adventures (which are really cool and very entertaining), as a "kid explaining Star Wars with their LEGO toys", so I do not think it's canon (it really would not make any sense, seriously). Now, the Forces of Destiny bit, that sounds great and can't wait to see those already. 

    So, there are two hastags I must use, #AshokaLives & #HeraLives.

    A few things of note (trailer moves so fast so apologies for quality!)
    U - wings,
    imperial hover tanks, 
    Saw Guerrera is back,
    Bo-Katan(actress said she was returning months ago!),
    Who could the alien be? Seems he shows up a few times,
    Kallus new look on Yavin (  I wonder if he takes a new name and becomes a certain character seen in rogue one with cassian?)
    Saw is fighting!
    Bo Kanan vs Sabine?
    Deathtroopers(hope to see Krennic soon too)!
    Thrawn is back :) :) :)
    X-Wings!
    Is Hera piloting an X-Wing?
    Bo Katan to rule Mandalore- hope so I want Sabine back with the Ghost crew.

    I believe that during the Star Wars Celebration panel they said that the new alien character is called Rukh (voiced by Warwick Davis) and he is Thrawn's bodyguard/assassin in Legends. Looks like a good season and I'm kinda hoping most of the characters die by the end :)

    I'm sad the 4th will be the final season.  I was convinced they'd do at least two more. :/. But I'm sure whatever Dave Filoni has in store for after rebels will be just as good, if not better.

    Wolf =Ahsoka? I realize that it could just be Kanan communicating with the wolf, but realistically I find it incredibly unlikely that ahsoka returns as we think of her. No way Darth Vader knowingly let her live and I think this type of a return is way more likely because otherwise she would definitely have a part in the rebellion going forward. And the dream for a relatively inexpensive ahsoka dies...

    I Sense that they might do a new Star Wars cartoon series about the birth of the Resistance.

    I saw this and I had to share this with you all, except I did not know where to put this (here/general SW/off topic?!).
    It is Star Wars, it is animated but not Rebels.
    It is not from Lucas Arts/Disney but made by a fan: Paul Johnson. It is anime style, and I think it looks awesome!
    Hope the admins don't mind (otherwise please let me know).
    Enjoy:

    First time in this thread!

    So ive been watching this show for the first time and right now I'm about halfway into Season 3. I really enjoy it! I also watched Clone Wars for the first time earlier in the year (the Rebels episode with the CW throwback was so cool) 

    Now I find myself really wanting a Ghost and the new Phantom set!

    This is interesting. Why would they do that?

    Does the finale contain spoilers for Ep8? Will people survive and pop up during trilogy movies? Is Ezra Snoke????

    The last one is obvious a joke, but it is suprising to see that they speed up the episodes and if it concludes in December I wouldn't be suprised if they drop some TLJ hints regarding some characters.

    And starwars.com has confirmed the back to back up episodes will only be until the start of November.

    I didn't really like the season opener (they should've taken a risk and killed off some of the named characters), but the last two episodes were great.  Really looking forward to more Rogue One tie-ins.  We need a Saw minifig already!

    Wow, so it's all over in less than two weeks?  The mid-season premiere was great!  This season has still felt a bit uneven to me though.  Hopefully the last five episodes keep up the momentum.

    On topic, maybe they'll throw Rebels fans a bone every now and then like they do with Clone Wars sets.  I'm not sure if #75182, #75206 or #75199 are representative of TCW episodes, but at least it's clear what era they're from.  Come onnnn, Hammerhead Corvette!  In the meantime, I've resigned myself to picking up stand-in minifigs (RA-7 for AP-5, the Ugnaught for Melch, or Terba) or Bricklinking customs (TIE Pilot Wedge, Mon Mothma).

    You would hope, but given how short-lived the Rebels subtheme itself was I'm kind of skeptical.

    That was truly epic. The episode 'A World between Worlds' even had something profound about it. I absolutely loved this episode.

    @FowlerBricks  
    We might just yet some time in the future get a Malachor Sith Temple Duel Lego SW set. Who knows?! If, or rather hopefully when Lego releases more SW Rebels sets, minifigs of the Seventh Sister as well as the Eighth Brother will be included too. Jedi Temple Guard minifigs would be a nice addition too.
