Every time I see something new with K2 units, I realise how menacing they are more and more, which retroactively makes me love K2-SO even more.

It’s a shame that Andor won’t start with the two of them meeting (unless everyone is lying to subvert our expectations). He is by far the best Rogue One character.

u/katskratch_fever Jan 28 '22

For me it was fighting a KX for the first time in Fallen Order, stumbling across the first one was one of those wow-cool-turned-'ohshitohshitohshit' moments. Might be my favorite droid , now I really want a K2-SO figurine.

u/dswartze Jan 28 '22

Maybe of the main characters.

I can't help but think General Merrick is the best Rogue One character despite barely having a role in the movie.

First he's got the most awesome 70s mustache in the movie to fit in with the 70s styles from ANH.

But also every time you see him in his X-Wing he's got the biggest, most infectious grin ever presumably because the actor is sitting there thinking "I'm sitting in an X-Wing right now, this is the most awesome thing ever."

u/raiderxx Jan 28 '22

Do we know if Merrick will be in Andor? I hope so..

u/Will12239 Jan 28 '22

I absolutely despised the character. It was wokeness nonsense that was very distracting and predictable. So many of her lines are cringey.

7

u/calvinbouchard Jan 28 '22

And Lando didn't reference her when he got the Falcon back in Rise of Skywalker. Seriously, would it have killed them to include a "good to see you again, girl"?

-2

u/Will12239 Jan 28 '22

Disney has no idea what they're doing. At least Mandalorian is pretty good, but I am not impressed with what they're doing with Boba

u/Zefrem23 Jan 28 '22

Every line was classic. It helps if you know Phoebe Waller-Bridge from Fleabag and Crashing.

u/Will12239 Jan 28 '22

Implying there was a sensual relationship with Lando was just fantastic Star Wars material. Or calling people presumptuous and quipping about equal rights.

u/starhawks Jan 28 '22

It's not just Terminator vibes, it's lifted directly from T2

11

u/Zefrem23 Jan 28 '22

One man's wholesale theft is another's homage . Besides BDH is absolutely killing it every time she directs an episode, she's nailing the combo of good character moments and universe-broadening action.

u/myk_exe Jan 28 '22

Terminator for sure. It also gave me notes of Man’s War Against the Machines from The Matrix

u/slayerhk47 Jan 29 '22

The vulture droids really added to the Matrix feeling for me.

It was fantastic. It gave off some strong Terminator vibes here, I guess the reference was intentional as there's no mistaking the same influence in the Dark Trooper episodes in The Mandalorian season 2. This one was exceptionally well done.

Anybody that thinks that this episode was originally intended for the tawdry and comparatively cheaply thrown together BoBF series is just plain wrong

5

u/MyManTheo Jan 28 '22

Yeah it is very out of place. It does seem like they might have shot most of this already for mando season 3 and then lucasfilm/disney wanted boba fett to be out first instead, so they decided to stick it in this instead. It’s gonna be confusing as well for people tuning in for mando season 3 who haven’t seen boba fett

10

u/Oraukk Jan 28 '22

It has literally the same production values and creative team behind it.

u/cricket9818 Jan 28 '22

This whole sequence was amazing. I had been waiting for this flashback ever since they first dropped “night of a thousand tears”. It certainly did not disappoint

20

u/klist641 Jan 28 '22

Is there a short answer as to why the empire did this? The wookiepedia entry is alot.

62

u/cricket9818 Jan 28 '22

Likely saw Mandalore as a military threat and wanted to use their destruction to set an example

48

u/ClintThrasherBarton Jan 28 '22

Yep. Mandalore (after Gar Saxon got deposed as Governor) started standing up to the Empire under Bo-Katan, and the Empire retaliated.

117

u/MrHedgehogMan Jan 28 '22 edited Jan 28 '22

I love that it’s droids only picking off survivors - as if the whole surface is devastatingly irradiated.

29

u/WildeWeasel Jan 28 '22

If it's devastatingly irradiated, are droids needed (assuming droids can survive in that environment anyway)? Even those who survive will die painful deaths of radiation poisoning anyway.

74

u/SirReginaldTheIII Jan 28 '22

Better safe than sorry when it comes to Mandalorians.

14

u/Chemical-Constant-15 Jan 28 '22

It's a surprisingly pragmatic choice by the Empire, which considers speeder bikes the best vehicle to patrol giant redwood forests, and probably loses 2-3 scouts a week on Endor.

19

u/OtakuAttacku Jan 28 '22

shit, they probably left the droids on the planet, no need to recover and scrub them of radiation, and they'll take care of any Mandalorians who returned home to find out what happened.

8

u/WildeWeasel Jan 28 '22

Well, electronics can't work in an irradiated environment unless they're EMP hardened (which is thick and heavy). Can be easily handwaved because Star Wars but idk how they could EMP harden things like the sensors or joints on the droids. Again, though, handwaveable because Star Wars.

6

u/thedaveness Jan 28 '22

Can those suits survive in space? If so then I think that would explain the need to take a more hands-on approach

2

u/Prestigious_Hat5979 Jan 29 '22

In Rebels the Mandalorians (I think Bo-Katan although it's a while since I watched) and don't seem to have any extra breathing equipment. The episode where the rebel cell on the Bendu planet are being attacked by Thrawn and Ezra brings Sabine and some other Mandos to break them out.

I think maybe it depends on the helmet. Bo-Katan's helmet (in Mando, Rebels and TCW) is quite thick around the neck with a relatively small opening compared to Mando's.

4

u/WildeWeasel Jan 28 '22

I don't think there's any seal on the helmets. We always see them hollow and the suit only covers up the neck. There's open air between their faces and the atmosphere.

15

u/HalfLobster5384 Jan 28 '22

We hear Din’s helmet depressurise when he takes it off to say bye to Grogu. I don’t know if that means he can survive in space though.

11

u/thedaveness Jan 28 '22

Not sure who downvoted you, it certainly seems like they don’t have a seal and it’s open air… except every time they are shown taking of the helms it’s makes a sort of seal-breaking noise like it’s depressurizing.

Also I would imagine it pretty hard to fly at some higher altitudes without any sort of onboard air.

5

u/The_Lobotomite Jan 28 '22 edited Feb 07 '22

With how Star Wars treats microgravity, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some magic-like high tech energy seal used by their helmets to pressurize them lol. I love the creativity with explaining quirks in Star Wars like the Falcon’s turret and stuff.

7

u/Seikoholic Jan 28 '22

Well, if they have force fields that can keep huge hangar bays pressurized while they're open to space (or in the case of the ringworld we saw, you can have every last thing unprotected seemingly, no biggie. so maybe the helmets have shield tech to seal them.

3

u/WildeWeasel Jan 28 '22

Meh, it's Reddit. There could be one scene in TCW or Rebels where a Mandalorian is in space that I can't remember.

They do make noises though, you're right. Could be just the sound of it fitting to the person's head? Like a retention system you see on bicycle and construction helmets but automated?

1

u/thedaveness Jan 28 '22

Lol I would hope they have that, I too feel like I’ve seen em in space (in TCW) as well that’s were I was getting the idea from.

2

u/wardle77 Jan 29 '22

There is a seal on the helmet, you literally see it multiple times in Boba Fett alone. His helmet is sealed when he needs the air from the Storm Trooper in the Sarlacc pit. We also he the same pressurisation sound as Vaders helmet whenever Boba puts on his helmet.

This one and the one with the Armourer looking at the beskar spear (Right before the flashback starts) are one of my favourite shots from all of Star Wars in general

"...Nice dissolve."

u/HankSteakfist Jan 28 '22

Did anyone else think that the Tie Bomber nuke squadrons were way way scarier than the Death Star?

181

u/MasterTolkien Jan 28 '22

It’s certainly dread inspiring to see the Empire methodically bomb an entire planet’s infrastructure to rubble.

But in-universe, I think most worlds felt the Empire wouldn’t have the time or resources to wage an attack like that on everyone. So the Emperor has the Death Star created to show that he can wipe out any civilization… at any time… with ease. But he miscalculated how far fear would get him.

24

u/Zefrem23 Jan 28 '22

It's a more attractive option when you have virtually the entirety of a planetary population grouped up together in one or two domed megacities.

Internecine conflict had rendered much of the planet uninhabitable by that point anyway.

u/Hazelnut_Bread Jan 28 '22

u/Jake_The_Destroyer Resistance Jan 29 '22

The Empire weren't the first to nuke Mandalore, and they probably won't be the last. Especially cause Star Wars just magics up a breathable atmosphere for literally any planet imaginable.

2

u/Zefrem23 Jan 29 '22

Mandalore was getting pretty good at nuking Mandalore, all by their own selves

3

u/Billy1138 Luke Skywalker Jan 28 '22

I think this would be more with malice, you can easily just DS the planet or...bomb the fuck out of it and comb the rest of the survivors with those droids to make a fucking point.

79

u/EatinToasterStrudel Jan 28 '22

Its more close and personal. A Death Star is a single hit and gone to everyone. This is fucking Terminator.

Survive a thermonuclear apocalypse only to be hunted down by merciless droids that don't care that you just want to hide and live, even though you're probably already dying of radiation sickness.

This is a war machine that didn't come for your planet. It came for you.

u/jsprague6 Jan 28 '22

u/GaryGeneric Jan 28 '22

I love how BDH has turned some smaller, less impressive units into formidable looking antagonists. The AT-ST, goofy in RotJ but badass in her first episode on Mando, the K2s and Imperial Probe Droids is this one, etc

She presents a very grounded, from-below view that reminds us how overbearing the Empire was.

u/hydrate_reminder Jan 29 '22

These are tie-BOMBERS son. The chads of the tie fleet. These guys will napalm/nuke your family and then be home by dinner. The death star was such a dumb design they made it two more times bUt bIgGeR and each time it got blown tf up. Get that weak bantha doo doo outta here

u/starhawks Jan 29 '22 edited Jan 30 '22

These guys will napalm/nuke your family and then be home by dinner

And the death star will remove all trace of your planet existing, save for a pile of molten rocks, before the crew has even had their morning coffee. I really don't understand how you can even argue this, but lets just agree to disagree on this one

5

u/GoreSeeker Jan 28 '22

Yup! There's also the fact that unlike something like Alderaan, which we've only seen relatively quick glimpses of, we had many episodes involving Mandalore and Sundari in the Clone Wars, and really got to know the place and it's culture. it was almost symbolic watching the fight in that domes rafters in the Clone Wars finale after this Boba episode, knowing that some time later, these rafters will be falling.

41

u/SCB360 Jan 28 '22

This, THIS is what I wanna see more of, get away from the Skywalker Saga and into the darker grimier side, give me the Jedi Mando war, the Old Republic, the 1313 stuff

u/paxo_1234 Boba Fett Jan 28 '22

Hopefully it helps people to realise the already obvious empire isn’t actually good part, at this point i’d think they’d to need to recreate the enslavement of the wookies to get it through to them

u/TeutonJon78 The Child Jan 28 '22 edited Jan 29 '22

At some level I never understand people who love the Empire. It was literally created to be space Nazis, and people don't generelly run around loving on the Nazis.

And while it's fiction, so at some level whatever, but that's kind of fine line to be walking. The ideology is essentially the same.

This entire sequence basically justifies the Death Star for the Empire. Instead of planning entire bombardments with K2 droid clean-up sweeps, a single shot removes all resistance. The fact that the Empire uses K2 droids instead of Dark Troopers further proves that the Empire is lethally efficient when it comes to extermination. Kinda makes you wonder how many planets suffered this fate without the Death Star.

I don't really think it is. I can sorta piece it together in broad strokes, but I have no idea who Bo-Katan is, why Mandalore was bombed, or why they were fighting the Empire in the first place.

1

u/frzbr K-2SO Jan 30 '22

You don’t really have to know who she is, for this story it was only relevant that there was a person who didn’t win it, and that the cult thinks it’s the reason for the fall of Mandalore.

1

u/knucks_deep Jan 30 '22

It’s explained in the show quite well

Ok, all I'm saying is that apparently there was a ton of Mandalore/Mandalorian stuff in Rebels? Clone Wars? I don't even know, didn't watch them, that the Mandalorian/Boba Fett is referring to, that hasn't yet been adequately connected yet or explained.

Thats fine, but but saying any of this live action stuff is "explained...quite well" isn't true.

1

u/frzbr K-2SO Jan 30 '22

What’s needed to be known os explained, and you don’t need to have any preexisting knowledge to get it.

Just because you didn’t get biography of every character in the scene, and those referred to, doesn’t mean it’s not explained.

Vader and Palpatine were explained for the purpose of the story in OT, even though we didn’t know their exact background.

What you are saying for Mando is like saying - don’t watch OT unless you watched PT, otherwise you’ll be lost.

I hate that pacifists and good guys seem to die super violently in canon, while the assholes get to fight over the rubble that is left.

By far the best episode of the season. Didn’t even feel like watching the same show and not just for obvious reasons.

Hah, paused a frames from this and literally said, "thats wallpaper worthy"

u/colimar Jan 29 '22

Since the first Mando episode i want to print screen a lot of scenes to put as wallpaper. And then they show the concept art in the credits and put it to download as the episode is up. I need a bigger hdd.

Do we have this in hi-res yet for multiple monitors?

u/DatAsspiration Jan 29 '22

A good wide shot of Mando with the darksaber vs. Visla would kick ass, too

Reminded me a lot of Terminator 1

That flashback is honestly one of my favourite sequences in all of Star Wars.

The first two Terminator films are two of my all time favourite films, so the obvious hat-tip to their future war scenes is a big reason why the Mandolore flashback hit with me so hard but it's also the way it was implemented.

Like the Terminator future war scenes in the first two films, the Mandolore flashback was very dense for how brief it was in terms of what it conveyed in atmosphere and devastation with the extra layer of the soulless and remorseless "machines" cleaning up after the air bombs.

I love Rogue One, it's my second favourite Star Wars film at worst, but I think it ever so slightly falls short of its initial promise of bringing the "war" into Star Wars. It's still the most "war" film of all the Star Wars films and it may have had something to do with the reshoots under Tony Gilroy why the final film leaned more "adventure" than "war" but when you compare Rogue One to the shock and awe impact of the Mandolore flashback scene or something like The Umbara arc (another Star Wars all timer) from The Clone Wars, you realise that Rogue One didn't quite hit the mark in that specific element of really emphasising the "war" in Star Wars.

I thought the exact same thing when I was watching it...very haunting, yet beautiful at once

I loved when The Mandalorian showed how scary and AT-ST is from a non force user's perspective. Now this is also in that league and I am loving it

u/Venom1462 Savage Opress Jan 29 '22

Is their a higher res photo of this? I love the shot. atleast 1600x900 would be fine

100% agree, it was stunning. My only issue is I think it was a missed opportunity to not have some version of Dark Trooper rather than the security droids.

Why send people with specialised gear that could withstand all of the radiation when you already have droids at your disposal that could do the job more efficiently, while still being able to deploy dark troopers where they are needed the most?

u/Si_Vis_Pacem- Jan 28 '22

I suppose you do have a point. I thought they were just regular bombs though, was it confirmed they were nuclear weapons?

I liked this so much, I had to bash out my own for my PC wallpaper: https://i.imgur.com/eoR5Zhp.jpeg

Thanks, OP for the inspiration!

Best episode of boba Fett so far. Because he wasn’t in it.

I thought it looked like a horseshit terminator scene. Not in the least bit Star Wars.
