Yeah, I recognized it immediately. Got the “Star Wars Blueprints” for Christmas in 1978 and the Sky Hopper was one of them. I think you could fly it in the old Rebel Assault game?

You kids get off my lawn.

Obiwan episode 3 was great. While there was a fair amount of fan service, it was executed really well. Lots of tension filled moments and terrific visuals. For whatever reason I don't find the bickering among inquisitors very interesting but it doesn’t take up too much time, thankfully.

That episode was fairly awesome...
Ewan is doing a great job of playing a way out of practice Jedi that's out of his depth.
Loved the Pyramid Inquisitopolis base out in the ocean.
Little Leia is still killing it.

Really solid episode. This is promising to be the best of the Star Wars shows so far.

Spoiler alert I guess
Gotta love seeing peak Vader. You got a taste in Rogue One, but he's legit terrifying.

Yeah, I figure the force was shielding Kenobi from the worst of it, but seeing him get literally roasted by Vader was pretty brutal

Or just casually choking the hell out of rando civilians to try to lure out Obi Wan. Yikes.

I think part of it is that this series is my first exposure to the Inquisitors. I'd probably care about them more if I experienced the show/comic/game or wherever else they've been. The characters just seem shallow in the show, and the Grand Inquisitor and Fifth Brother look downright silly to me (which is interesting, since half the show is non-human)

They were kind of a big bad for multiple seasons in Rebels, but hard to judge their real power level because Kanan/Ezra weren't 'true' trained Jedi.

Ahsoka fought several of them at once and beat their asses, and she's not a top tier Jedi by most accounts. Obi Wan should destroy them, if he was in fighting shape.

She's not top tier? I haven't watched the source material myself, but if the nerds I listen to are to be believed, she held her ground against a lot of big names: Maul, Vader, Grievous, ObiWan, Anakin

Maul fights two and wins within like 20 seconds as well.
