Statistically you'd think that I'd sometimes fluke into typing a decent post. Nah. Only the most tedious, shitty posts, all day every day baby!

Don't bother engaging me, I don't ever get the hints to fuck off.

Yeah, it's a speeder that shows up in the first Rogue Squadron game.

It's the Segway of Star Wars, so this checks out

The STAP's just a standing speeder bike, built for recon over speed. It fits with the battle droid aesthetic and also resembles a real-rear end vehicle.

It's not a starfighter but since personal transports seen to be fair game in here, I find it kinda interesting that no one seems to remember that the AT-PT exists.

And I loving hate them. I failed the stupidass Rogue Squadron mission where you escort a few of them so many goddamn times.

quote:

Star Wars: Legacy is set over 126 years after the film Return of the Jedi. The comics feature Cade Skywalker, a descendant of Luke Skywalker, who was trained as a Jedi, but abandoned the order. He apprenticed himself to the pirate Rav and lives among bounty hunters, smugglers and pirates. Cade also dropped his last name. The series begins with an attack on the Jedi Temple and the overthrow of the Galactic Alliance by the One Sith order.

After a great and furious struggle, Cade and his friends manage to kill the evil Sith emperor, Darth Krayt. However, even without their leader, the Sith remain a powerful danger.

that looks like it had the same starting pt as this:



that is, take a real-world airplane design, and make it look xwing-ish. except the clonetrooper fighter takes design cues from a couple of real-world midcentury planes that look neat and have sorta analogous purpose—the p61, maybe the p51??—and making them fuckin rad, this dumb thing just grabs the proportions of like a fuckin glider or one of those lil push-propeller things, makes it look blocky, adds extra wings, and slaps the rockets into the....tail booms?????

Those tails are incredibly unimaginative and not sci-fi looking at all, but come to think of it, most Star Wars ships don't really have much of a tail at all, so that's a big break stylistically.
