OUT OF THE WAY, X-WING FUCKING SHITS. BEST FIGHTERS COMING THROUGH TO FUCK UP SOME IMPERIALS
OH, WHAT'S THAT? SOME TIE INTERCEPTORS FUCKING YOUR SHIT UP SIX WAYS FROM SUNDAY? I GOT YOU BRO.
I'M LITERALLY JUST ENGINES WITH GUNS STRAPPED ON. I DON'T NEED THE HELP OF HEAVY SHIELDS OR FANCY S-FOILS OR SOME OBNOXIOUS ASS R2 UNIT TO FUCK YOUR BITCH. I JUST HIT THE ACCELERATOR AND FUCKING GO.
NOW THIS IS FUCKING PODRACING
DON'T MIND ME, JUST DROPPING IN TO DECAPITATE YOUR 19 KM LONG PENIS COMPENSATION DESTROYER AND THERE AIN'T SHIT YOU CAN DO TO STOP ME KNOCK KNOCK BITCH GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER
where is the Executor's bow in this shot? surely you'd be able to see it out the window.
Also, fucking rebels, have to make suicide runs because you're too stupid to win conventionally.
>A-Wing is an F-104. Missile with a man in it and all that.
Nope. The A-10 wing has good shielding and a hyperdrive. The F-104 would a TIE fighter, nothing except the essentials and the ability to go fast.
A-Wing is just a go fast fighter. It's just two engines and a cockpit.
This shit doesn't belong here. Take your shitty space show to another board, trekkies.
>NOW THIS IS FUCKING PODRACING
Rebel scum get rekt, best fighter coming through.
>fuck off Captcha, kayaks are boats too
i really want this to be in the new movie
a shame the game sucks ass
have you even seen the trailer for the new movie?
have you been living under a rock?
new X Wings are based off the original concept art for Star Wars
That's the chart ILM used for RotJ. Hell you can see them doing alright in a couple shots. At least three Tie Interceptors were blown up by Y-wings.
The only good thing about Star Wars was this character.
>He believes Y-wings are slow
Look at him, look at him and laugh.
Return of the Jedi wasn't that great a film.
It is a product of Lucas' "It's so dense" philosophy.
>Maximum speed: 1300kph.
Impressive, for an early cold war fighter.
>Daily reminder that this was the women who wrote The Empire Strikes Back, not George Lucas
>Daily reminder that if not for the co-writers, Star Wars would have most likely sucked
>Daily reminder that all the reasons why the prequels sucked can be traced back to George Lucas being a shitty director
Star Wars fans will lap up any turd Lucas squirts out.
Because there's really good stuff in the EU. Yes, there is a load of shit, but there's also really good stuff. Plus your argument is moot because Lucas had nothing to do with the EU.
Lemme guess, you're mad they got rid of the retarded unbeatable blue man?
Or did they kill of your favorite Mary Sue?
FUCK YEAH CRAB PEOPLE!
In any fighter vs fighter, the A-Wing would win
>Slow, bulky, not built to attack fighters
>The Empire does quantity>quality, enough said
>Worse in every category except bombing
>Take the Y-Wing, make it even slower, clumsier and bulkier
I seriously hope they make Jar Jar a main character in these new Star Wars movies.
Remember, no matter how terrible it gets, you know the neckbeards will still go see each one in record numbers.
You shut the fuck up. Star Wars is totally /k/, and has been for a long time.
I've always loved that Millennium Falcon design
Bah. I'll have you know I am a highly celebrated author.
Are you trying to make up for the shitposting void left now that Zed's gone?
Because you're going to have to try a hell of a lot harder if that's what you're going for.
Well I mean it is Star Wars you're talking about. That's about as shit as you can get.
Who needs speed, superior firepower, when you have fucking style.
>not built to attack fighters
A4 was always designed as a fighter and isn't slow
I was hoping more for him to be the guy with the t-lightsaber, but that sounds even better.
Bro when i glanced at this i was thinking this was from space 1999 if anyone remembers that
Her draft has nothing to do with what was filmed according to the few people who have read it
The empire filming script was written by Lawrence Kasdan with some additional polishing by Lucas
The Phantom Meance is directly adapted from initial first drafts Lucas wrote back in the mid-70s, back when it was Hidden Fortress in Space.
The very stuff that Gary Kurtz made him rewrite again and again and again because it was bad.
And even after he'd written something workable as A New Hope the couple that wrote American Grafitti and Temple of Doom were still needed to rewrite the atrocious dialogue.
And his wife had to edit the film after his first cut was too long and meandering and left the studio executives furious and his film school pals laughing.
He just changed the character and place names
General Starkiller becomes Qui-Gon
His kids Deak and Anikin become Obi-Wan and Annikin
The Luke/Leia prototype princess being escorted around becomes Padme
Yavin IV under siege by the galactic empire becomes naboo under siege by the trade federation.
Vader prototype becomes Darth Maul
Wookiees and Chewacca prototype becomes Gunguns and Jar Jar
The t-16 skyhopper race Lucas wanted in New Hope becomes the pod race
The empires space battle stations become trade federation droid controllers (and in new hope became the Death Star)
The dual battles in space and on land he first recycled into return of the Jedi and is again recycled here
The conflict between the native wookiees and the princesses people's is changed to naboos conflict between the Gunguns and the humans, their need to work together is reused
And so on
ayy, Space 1999 was good shit.
That show was hella fun, pretty cheesy, but 10 year old me ate it up. I need to rewatch it sometime, the spacecraft in it were really cool looking.
Oh snap nigger!!
I have a backpack to go with that
>And his wife had to edit the film after his first cut was too long and meandering and left the studio executives furious and his film school pals laughing.
In Lucas edit the film kept cutting back and forth between the shit going on on the blockade runner, leia, Vader, the droids, etc and Luke whining about shit to his aunt and uncle and playing with his friends and meeting Biggs who is joining the rebellion
>blockade runner and star destroyer come out of light speed and shoot it out over tattooine
>Cut to Luke fixing vaporators watches with his macrobinoculars
>Cut back to stormtroopers boarding the ship, shooting it out with the crew
>cut back to Luke whining
>cut back to Vader interrogating and killing the ships captain
>cut back to Luke going to toshi station and hanging with his homies
>cut back to leia and the droids
>cut back to Luke meeting Biggs and learning his running away to join the rebellion
>cut back to droids in desert
>cut back to Luke racing his friends
It just fucking kills the pacing
It tells us nothing new.
We learn in all the scenes after Luke and the droids meet up that he doesn't want to be a farmer and wants to leave and shit and all these earlier scenes are simply telling us the exact same thing.
One or the other has to go.
Its the same problem reinserting the Jabba scene has.
Han has just met Greedo and we the audience learn Han is in trouble and owes money and has bounty hunters on his ass.
And now Han meets Jabba and we the audience learn Han is in trouble and owes money and has bounty hunters in his ass.
You only need one or the other not both.
Since Lucas is so pissy about Han shooting first why not cut the Greedo scene all together and have the Jabba scene set up Hans problems.
Restores narrative flow and eliminates repetition.
why do X-Wings need wings in space? sure they fight in atmostphere here and there, but so can A-Wings and t47 airspeeders. Sure they have a wide airframe, but that hasn't stop regular vehicles from not flying with odd shapes in Star Wars universe.
>inb4 no fun
You should be asking why space combat in Star Wars does not abide zero gravity + inertia based movement.
they do in Star Wars Rebels-The Siege of Lothal where Vader is killing all the A-Wings with his Advanced Tie
The A-Wing is just pure sex, I hope a new version of it appears in the new movie, I'm kinda worried that I only see X-wings and Tie Fighter
yeah, i knew this was going to be the response, it does have space magic and lightsabers>guns. i don't know what i was expecting with that question.
They are filters / intake funnels for heating atmosphere for additional thrust when surface fighting. The actual engines are smaller and behind them.
Or is acceleration/inertia movement a better descriptor?
Is there even a proper term for movement in space, like how flying/sailing/driving indicates the medium being traveled through/on?
>provided by two powerful Novaldex J-77 'Event Horizon' engines.
Only A-wing pilots get to experience The Warp firsthand.
Did Disney change its stance on the EU?
Is any one else hella pissed about the EU stink?
>tfw no GAThrawn
>tfw no Kyle Katarn
>tfw no dark trooper project
>tfw no emperor clones
>tfw no world devastators/sun crusher/galaxy gun
>tfw when no Valley of the Jedi incident/ VotJ 2 Electric Boogaloo
>tfw so much cool shit gone because Lucas is a fuck who sold us out for a shitty wood nymph movie
Everything falls under 'Legends' or "Legacy' or whatever they're calling it, and then the seem to be taking what they like and saying 'yeah, we'll keep that.'
They just don't like anything cool in the EU.
>Legend of the Galactic Heroes
There was a really good version of this in star wars empire at war forces of corruption
>tfw it's not cannon
It's so much better than Star Wars. At least they don't pretend the pants-on-head retarded "science" is anything more than a plot device.
