Yes, because in classic Star Wars fashion, the most prominent single example of an alien species is generally a stereotype for the entire species

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.

It only ever showed up in video games, right? I only remember it in Rogue Squadron and Galactic Battlegrounds.

That Rogue Squadron mission (Escape from Fest) was pretty bullshit. I recently got Rogue Squadron 3D (the PC port) off GOG in a sale and that was the mission that gave me the most trouble. Escort missions are bullshit anyway, but this one is the worst in the game since the snowspeeder is kind of crappy but you have to take it because it's the only ship than can kill AT-ATs

They were created for Dark Force Rising in 1992 as some of the tech aboard the Katana fleet that the New Republic and Thrawn were fighting over. Then the Rogue Squadron games just recycled the design as a small walker enemy, so most people's exposure to it was seeing the Empire using tons of them when in fact they were originally meant to be an experimental limited run unit.

That whole trilogy was so weird, it introduced some great characters and is highly venerated in the old canon, but goddamn did it have some stupid poo poo like the extra-vowel clones, Thrawn's "by analyzing this race's paintings I can identify their greatest weaknesses" BS, etc.

Also I honestly hate that Chiss are a thing now.

They're one of the most low-effort, low-budget Star Trek style aliens in Star Wars. They make Twi'leks look shockingly creative.

Like why can't Thrawn be a Sebulba or something?

Jedi in the original trilogy were pretty tame, lifting some things, lightning, ghosts, and a little ESP. Lifting the X-Wing was a complex metaphysical challenge that took everything Luke had.

The EU later had Jedi being just being better than everyone at everything, the prequel era led to Jedi just slinging force powers everywhere at a moment's notice, which really peaked with the absurd levels of space magic that the Force: Unleashed games did. When the sequels came round, they kept with the inflated power levels but also forgot about any supposed metaphysical difficulty in using the force.

the moment the EU collapsed under its own weight was when a bunch of trainee kids - not even jedi - held hands and force threw an imperial invasion fleet several light years to thwart a conventional attack and this was considered normal, like there's no coming back from that, jedi eventually became demi-gods who could make stars live and die at their command

at that point you're either using force-sloths to strategically leech jedi magic or you're inventing a whole new villain faction with anti-force stuff because the shark's already been jumped and i know which of the two options was ultimately less obnoxious

The slanted bricks are the cockpits, idiot

On an even smaller scale, an x-wing can be made with the following plates: 1x1 cockpit, 4x1 fuselage, 2 3x1 wings. a tie is just 2 4x4 plates on opposite sides of a cylinder

Me and my two roommates bought the lego Falcon right out of high school, getting our first pay checks.

It got knocked over and shattered a few months later, and none of us could be bothered to try and rebuild it because we were all exhausted and stressed from lovely jobs. That was kinda when my childhood ended.

Oh yeah, I remember those mini-lego star wars sets, they were amazing.



But you know what? There's in-world ships that are literally bolted-together pieces of garbage, and they're great. The official name for these is "uglies". I really love them because they really reinforce the idea that all these wild and crazy bits of a ship really each serve a purpose on their own.



Hmm, not great. How about the other way?



Seems like the plumbing for the fuel lines on that would be all screwed up.

This one is the best because the x-wing parts seem to already be functional? It's got cockpit, engines, guns. Wtf purpose do the hollowed out tie cockpit and panels serve?

I'm pretty sure it's just a kid x-wing going as an interceptor for Space Halloween.
