Any question then why those two Nerfworx runs for the Rebels hilts and the Darksaber, not to mention Roman MK1's are so popular right about now?
These Rebels episodes are so well done. They mesh the old with the new, with some of the previous fiction material like Grand Admiral Thrawn, and the unexpected. They are superb. The Sabine Wren story line is very good. That's Disney's little addition, that is actually very well done.
It'll be a few more days before I can see R1 so I can't make any comparisons there. I can say I like this show more than TCW. I didn't think I would but whaddya know. This preview has me super excited. I wonder if they'll tie all of this in to EP8? It would be cool if they did.
