Bluetooth won't keep a connection to my Sony Xperia L1. 90% of the time it just refuses to connect at all, then on the rare occasion I obtain the "Bluetooth Connected" message, the application continues to find for the controller and won't allow me proceed past the syncing screen before dropping the connection again. Nothing wrong with the phone's bluetooth, tested with other apps. Spent so long trying to obtain it to work, the batteries died in the controller. You owe me 4 AA batteries. Extremely frustrating and indicative of sub-standard application testing, sort it out please.
Amazing application works fine BUT the double gate training missions are next to impossible unless you're a savant at flying and the strafing target mission says 0:00 seconds for 3 stars... So it is impossible. Please patch your application it has problems.
Do NOT download it will not allow me create an acc with MY email i have been trying for over an hour and it wont allow me even set a username. If you do download it you are just going to be wating your time. BIGGEST PILE OF **** ON HERE !!!!!
Application downloads, creates short chop on home screen, but when I begin application shout turns black and locks my phone out. I have to uninstall application to obtain phone working again. Very disappointed, as the X wing drone is awesome! (HTC one M8)
This is an absolutely essential and awesome adaptation of George Lucas' rough draft screenplay, showing an necessary evolutionary scene to a classic work. It shows just how much was in Lucas' head from the start, and Rinzler's adept handling gives it a compelling life all its own. Mayhew's art is wonderful. This is a must-have for any fan of Star Wars, Comics, Sci-Fi/Fantasy or Movie as a result. A fan of all of them? Even better.
Based on a rough draft of Star Battles you see elements from the original and prequel trilogies showing that Lucas had characters and scenes from the very beginning. This ver also shows the very stilted dialogue that Lucas is also know this ver Han Solo is a green ewie isn't connected to Solo, and has to be taught to fly.Darth Vader isn't a e Sith is named Valorum.And in this ver Chewie gets his medal at the end. Yeah!
I'm not the largest Star Battles fan, but I search this book interesting, because it shows how huge George Luca's ideas were. He had to chop and edit his ideas so that they could fit within the limits of budget, unique effects technology, and time. I'm still in the process of reading this comic. Very good. I highly recommend this.
Book is definitely worth the $20 or so dollars. JUST BE WARNED: if you are going to buy it from a third party source, just create sure you are getting all of the issues. I bought this book from a third party source and they only sent me problems #1 and #2 as separate paper back copies, not all e largest draw to this graphic novel is the awesome artwork. It's probably the most stunning out of any comic book I've read. As for the story, it's not as amazing as the original films (better than the prequels for sure), but it's still worth a read. The cool factor of having read an adaptation of George Lucas's original draft is to amazing to pass e characters are beautiful underdeveloped and the dialogue is beautiful cheesy, but honestly it never really bothered me. If the book was a bit longer to create up for the fast pacing and hero development it would be a true solid graphic novel.I would also recommend to hardback edition, since it has really nice binding and comes with a "making of" section. This graphic novel is amazing for even mild Star Battles fans.
This is the 'what could have been' entry in the Star Battles universe. Yes, it's not as fully formed as the movies; Hence, it's an early draft. Though that seems to be one of the major arguments versus this graphic novel, the artwork is attractive and if you are a real fan even if you don't like it you can at least appreciate what it means as a stepping stone to what was to become. My partner has been a Star Battles fan (make that MAJOR Star Battles fan) since he was a small boy and the films first hit the huge screen and he was able to have fun this thoroughly. Take it for what it is, comes recommended.
This graphic novel is something that I never knew existed for a while and it honestly surprised me. The art is beautiful damn amazing and the story, while very simple, is fascinating to me. This is probably what could have been had the current one not been made. While it ends on the promise of another story, I doubt we will obtain it. Still, I enjoyed this graphic novel and I highly recommend it to any long time Star Battles fan.
As some other people have said, it's an interesting look into the development process George Lucas went through, but the story is bloated, full of plot holes and some characters, in particular Darth Vader, don't do much of anything.
I've been waiting for this book and it didn't disappoint. If you're fans of Timothy Zhan's star battles EU, you'll message that Zahn did a very amazing job of portraying Luke's character, particularly in the Hand of Thrawn duology and Survivor's Quest. Ken Liu continues to capture the essence of Luke's hero but he delves in deeper in only a series of short stories, a remarkable feat. Three stories (an imperial's pov, the Tide and exogorth) , stood out to present the depths of compassion and wisdom Luke is learning in his journey to understand the force, more so than being a Jedi. If the EU spend more time to present Luke's masterful role as a Jedi master, this book turns the tide a bit by showing that Luke's destiny is more than what happened on ROTJ. Although I do love the heriocs of Luke depicted in EU, this series shows a deeper side of Luke and the farmboy integrity that he upholds to treat all beings of the force with respect. I give it four stars as there were two stories (the myth buster and the mote) which feel a small flat. Other than that, can't wait to see Luke in The Latest Jedi.
And with that, Jason Aaron’s storied run on Marvel’s flagship “Star Wars” title comes to an end. Volume 6 – “Out Among the Stars” collects problems #33-37, the majority of which are one-shot problems featuring individual adventures with the usual gang of heroes, as well as Sana Starros and Lando Calrissian. While these problems may not represent the pinnacle of either Aaron or artist Salvador Larroca’s talents, this final volume still stands as a decent enough farewell for Aaron, before Kieron Gillen comes aboard next month to steer the is usually the case with comic one-shots, the stakes for most of these problems feels low. That’s okay, though because Aaron mostly does enough fun items with hero dynamics and dialogue exchanges – pairing Luke and Leia together in problem #33, Lando and Sana together in #34, and Han and Chewie (shocker) in #35– to create up for his stories’ lack of “importance.” He also, finally, gets around in problem #36 to resolving the long-dangling plot thread that is C-3PO’s capture by Scar Squadron, which we witnessed all the method back at the end of Volume 4, “Last Flight of the Harbinger.” Although it’s hard not to want that we’d gotten a bit meatier of a follow-through to this story after waiting so long for it to be resolved – problem #25, which depicted C-3PO’s capture, was published all the method back in November 2016, pre-“Rogue One”s release - it’s still nice to see Aaron dot all of his i’s and cross his t’s before walking out the door.If there’s a major disappointment in this latest Volume, and really, in the latest two volumes of the series as well, it’s Salvador Larroca’s art. Like a lot of people, I really enjoyed his style on “Darth Vader,” but for some reason, his time on the main “Star Wars” title has been marred by an overreliance on photorealism and tracing, which – at least for my cash – is distracting at best and at worst, downright [email protected]#$%!&’s hard not to want that Aaron’s final problems on the series had been accompanied by artwork that was as powerful as that of his first, second, or even third arc, but hey - you can’t have everything.
Well, that dashing,daring, and devoius Han Solo has done it again. More excitement, more adventure! Being an avid Star Battles fan, I've spent most of my free time reading and re-reading this book. I love it! I would recomend this to any Star Battles fan, young or old. I tried to obtain multiple opinions in this book by my friends, and it seems that if you don't know a lick about Star Wars, you probably won't understand some of this book. But if you are familiar with SW, Hang On!! You're on for a beautiful wild ride. Now, I will admit it, there are a few parts in there where I felt kind of. . . uh. . . sleepy. ..(Maybe I stayed up longer than I thought reading it. . ) but the abundance of action and suspence quickly [email protected]#$%! away. All in all, I would say this is a very amazing me might say Han is just to brave (or to stupid) to be realistic. But, as Han would say, "Hey, its Me!"
This is a combined review of The paper back book and the comic from Dark horse, Classic star battles - Han Solo at stars end - Volume 5. This comic is based on the stand alone novelette written by the late Brian Daley. For those who had read AC Crispens Han Solo Trilogy (my favorite of the entire EU), Crispen left time in his story to accommodate Daley's stories about Han and Chewy taking a trip to the corporate sector. Virtually nothing is known about the corp sector except what Daley told us in his 3 novels about his favorite character, Han. One of those 3 stories is HS at is comic has amazing inking and binding but the pencil and artwork is of comic strip quality. I give the story a 5, inking a 3 and pencils a 2, then I round up because the stars are Han and chewy for 4 stars

While the plot and the script follow the perfect book upon which this is based fairly well, the end results fall short of the ssa looks kinda like she's described in the book, but the other characters aren't really recognizable, even Han and Chewie. While the ship renditions are fairly good, the only thing they got right was the Falcon -- there weren't any TIEs in the novel, and those small warriors in the comic aren't e art is too childish, and the words are too big, and the coloring and detail is a bit dull. Still, all of this is somewhat overcome by a fairly exciting story and a quick pace.Another plus is the low price. If you're into Star Wars, it's worth the money.
this was the worst i have ever read. i never caught the point of the whole story, yet i created myself read the whole thing to test to obtain the point. I never did. it had a not good plot, moved slowly, and to me was too boring.
Amazing cap and also introduction on an intriguing hero we met in Episode VII. This comic showed us a ruthless hero who was willing to do anything to advance her put in the First Order. Got to wonder how intelligent she really is though. Snoke, Ren, and Rey will all see right thru her. However, it’s cool to see what an ambitious and brutal Stormtrooper might do in the Star Battles Universe. This comic series showed us that clearly and if nothing else gets the reader excited for Episode VIII in just under a month!
So I finished this one the other day after reading the negative reviews. And while I will say it isn't a poor comic, I will say it wasn't entirely important either.Spoilers ahead:The book picks up at the end of The Latest Flight of the Harbinger with C-3PO in the hands of the Empire. R2 takes off to rescue him and Luke continues to read Ben Kenobi's journal. The rest of the story deals with Yoda feeling a call from the Force that leads him to a strange Lord of the Flies like e story isn't terrible, but it doesn't really do anything either. It doesn't advance the current story closer towards Empire Strikes Back (which is probably why they did it so they can hold the comics going) and the only purpose that I can search for the Yoda story is to present that Jedi must be humble in their abilities. But we already saw that out of Yoda in his three part series at the end of The Clone e artwork is really amazing though. So there's that.If you wish to read an ok side story, go for it. Or if you're like me and collect a lot of the expanded canon then still go for it. But if you wish to just hold going in the show story and not read Yoda, wait for The Screaming Citadel. All you miss here is Scar Squadron is planning to use 3PO as bait for our heroes.
This is a tough review for me to write. On the one hand, the book looks great. Perfect art. And, how often do you read a story about Yoda? I give Marvel large props for attempting something different. This isn't a story about the Rebels vs. the Empire. It's something e issue is that I felt like a fresh Pink Floyd album, where you feel like there's a notice there, but you're not quite sure what that notice is saying. All the time reading this story, I kept thinking to myself that the end of this--this interesting story--is going to come together and blow my mind. But, it didn't quite do that. And, if it is there on the page, I sure didn't obtain "it" on my first pass through the the end, I judge a book by how much I wish to go pick it up again once I lay it down. With this book, I wasn't as intrigued as I should have been. I really just wanted to obtain it read and done. It's a laudable effort on Marvel's part to attempt such a story, but for me, it just didn't e story does tie in a bit with the original trilogy, but my guess is that you could skip this collection and not miss much in the on-going Marvel series.I will note though that this collection also contains the second Star Battles Annual. You obtain the Yoda story plus the Annual. And, that's the bright side, as the story in this second Annual is quite good. It's a easy story, contained in the one issue. But, it's a story I found compelling, and it features a fresh character, Pash, that I hope we see again.
A huge cup of "meh".I am a large fan of SW, and I have enjoyed what Marvel has done with the franchise since they reacquired the license, but I gotta say, this was their first misstep, in my opinion. Its not that it was bad; it was just kind of pointless. It was an unnecessary delay of the main storyline that we could have done without. And while Yoda is a favorite, IF this story had to be told, it could have been done in half the time. Not a poor trade, just pointless.
r my money, this is the weakest story yet–not just from Aaron's "Star Wars" run, but in all of Marvel's Star Battles output since acquiring the license in 2014. I'm usually a huge fan of both Aaron's writing and Salvador Larroca's style, so the thought of the two of them pairing up for an arc–let alone an arc focused specifically on freaking YODA–really had me jazzed. Color me surprised and disappointed that neither writer nor artist seemed to operating at their full potential here.I could go on and on about all of the things that didn't work here, whether it be the plot itself–which proves definitively that there is such thing as a Star Battles story that is TOO out there–Larroca's linework, which seemed oddly unfinished here, or even just the method the arc sits rather uncomfortably alongside the broader Star Battles lore (no spoilers, but if you've read, you know of what I speak). In fairness, there were moments here and there that worked, particularly early on, when it felt like Aaron had a better grasp of the type of tale he wanted to spin. But the longer this arc dragged on, the more eager I was for it to wrap up. And now, mercifully, it Battles Vol. 5: Yoda's Secret Battle (Star Battles (2015-))
The fresh Marvel SW comics have, for the most part been great. The Vader books are, for me, the top tier but the SW run has been beautiful amazing as well. Unfortunately there is only so much storyline to fill between Ep IV and V and it feels like we've filled that gap sufficiently. Now we have filler such as this 's not poor but there is nothing memorable about it either other than the artwork which is great.
I was intrigued when I learned Marvel was departing from the main story arc for this one like they have with the Obi-Wan stories (which have been beautiful great). This story, however, was not. It felt like Yoda was plunked into the second half of Angry Max: Beyond Thunderdome in a rather pointless and frankly, kind of dumb, story. The only enjoyable moment, for me, takes put on the latest page of the latest issue. Even then it was a bit of a forced reach back to the Star Battles we know and love. You're really not missing much if you skip this volume. After volume four, I really feel like there's nothing more that needs to be told in this period of Star Battles history.
Up until now, Jason Aaron hasn't place a foot wrong in the Star Battles line. The plotting, characterization, and just the general feel of his run have been great, a true pleasure to read. Unfortunately with volume 5, things go off the rails. Focusing on an untold tale from Yoda's history, this story is a complete side-step with no true impact or bearing on the larger story. For the first time I found myself pushing impatiently through the pages in an attempt to obtain to the end, which is resolved in a less than fulfilling way. You also obtain an unrelated Princess Leia story at the end which is mediocre at best. Here's hoping that things return to normal with the next volume.
Best idea I have ever heard and as I read it, it got even better. These two guys create a large difference in the Galaxy. They fill in the gaps of why certain scenes happen the method they did. Its a worthy read for laughter.
This is definitely Star Battles done silly. Mark and Bink manage to stumble through almost every necessary stage of the saga while they test to hold from getting blasted.While the story is humorous, it still has its own consistency that keeps it entertaining and manages to hold real (more or less) to the ere are plenty of small visual jokes drawn into the background. The artwork is a excellent fit for the story.
A slap stick comedy that really fills in the holes you didn't know were there in the Star Battles Universe. This is a must-read for die-hard fans of the saga. Or if you're just looking for a funny method to pass the time.
Mark and Bink-I heard about them reading a 'Best Of' list of the Dark House line of Star Battles comics and I had to check them out. I'm a fan of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and this is definitely along those lines, although a fun take on the underbelly of the Star Battles movieverse and what it takes to survive or not survive the Star Wars. With plenty of jokes and shout-outs to fan culture along the margins.
I loved this book, a collection of all the Mark and Bink stories save for one that was published in Star Battles tales. Here we see two goofy Rebel troopers who escape Princess Leia's blockade runner by dressing as Storm Troopers end up in the background of almost every stage from episodes 4-6, and even a bit of 1 and 3!The writers manage to search ways to fit these two into iconic situations and even have them CAUSE some of the things. Who were the troopers on duty when Obi Wan crept in to turn off the tractor beam? Why didn't the red clad Imperial Guard intervene in the final war between Luke and Darth Vader and the Emperor?A amazing read for Star Battles fans with a sense of humor!
I read this in continuing the Darth Vader series, I have not read the Star Battles comic series yet, so it was a bit various going back and forth between Darth Vader and Star Battles between issues. All in all, this was a amazing crossover collection, but the art styles and even the writing styles seemed to clash a bit. I felt that the Star Battles writer didn't really capture the Aphra and Triple-Zero characters in quite the same method that the Darth Vader writer does, although it was very interesting seeing Triple-Zero in the realistic art style of the Star Battles comics. It was also a bit confusing to search this collection when Amazon does not contain it in the Darth Vader series page. If you follow what that says you will miss a huge chunk of the Darth Vader story.
This TPB takes put right after the happenings of Star Battles Episode IV: A Fresh Hope. Darth Vader comes out of hyperspace in his lone TIE Interceptor nose to nose with 2 squadrons of Rebel X Wings. Perfect action sequences ensue. This is my first acquaintance with the Star Battles Universe in Marvel comics (apart from the 80's books) and if Vader Down is an accurate representation of the quality of work, it's comparable to the unbelievable job Marvel did on Stephen King's Dark Turret prequels. This was also my first digital purchase of any comic for my Kindle. While having a hard copy of the comic would be a lot preferable, the $3.99 purchase price was a bargain to own the story.
I grew up with comics and Star Wars. I was 11 in 1977 and haven't lost my love for the characters. That being said until recently I hadn't read a lot of SW comics since the original Marvel run.I decided to check out the latest Vader comic after listening to the Star Battles Theory channel on YouTube. I'm glad I did.
As I've said elsewhere, Aaron and his squad do something that hasn't been done in 20 years in these books: they create Vader scary again. He's a force to be reckoned with, and this is one of the only stories series that brings him into contact with the original trilogy heroes, playing them off of the minor characters that we've been introduced to in the ongoing Vader books. Han, Chewie, and the droids all meet their doppelgängers in tremendously entertaining ways. The Vader series is far better than it has any right to be, and Vader Down is one of the best stories to come out of it.
If you're excited for Rogue One, or just like Darth Vader, this collection is great. This is the Vader we all wish in the upcoming film. An perfect addition to fresh canon, and the best story between Star Battles and Vader comics. If you're not gonna buy both collections then obtain this one. Artwork is wonderful, story is superb. My only complaint was some clunky dialogue in one or two panels. That's all the negativity I could muster about Vader Down.
Lots of fun, exciting background on charecters......worth thr time to read....the only con would be, no captain would sacrifice thier ship so easily....it's their ticket to freedom....but you'll have to read the story to search out why;)
If you have read the novels this brings it even more to life. If you haven't read the novels it is a amazing method to do so. I am a large star battles fiction fan and the Thrawn series is one of my favorite. When I found this on amazon I about flipped out. Got it in the mail and flipped out again. It is large for a graphic novel!!!! The pages and coloring are very well done, all glossy. Highly recommend it. I want they would do more of the novels like this.
"The Thrawn Trilogy" is considered by a lot of to be the unofficial Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, and for amazing reason. All the problems are included, along with some of the cover art. Only a brief introduction. As this is a compilation of comic book issues, it can't be faulted for the quality of the story or art. Dark Horse insisted on condensing each book into 6 issues, so of course some things will be left out or glossed over. That said, it's still excellent. Everything has been reproduced in high quality. A worthy addition to a library.4 stars because it lacks some of the cover art.
I loved these books when they came out originally in novel form. Though there were some parts that were not quite what I would consider star wars, for the most part it's fun and entertaining, the end itself is a bit disappointing after following the story through three novels, but overall it's a amazing experience. Now comes the compiling of the three novels in their comic form. I love the design of these books, the black writing on black hardcover book looks great. The only problem I have with this series is sometimes its' hard to follow what is going on. I know it's complicated to take a novel and place it into a limited number of comics but there are times when they leave out bits of info or begin a conversation in the middle, so if you have not read the novels or you read them a long time ago, you'll forget a bit of what they are talking about. It seems to jump a bit at times. The flow is a bit off from time to time. But the art and overall story adaptation is great. So if you love Star Battles you'll love this book. The jumpiness I mentioned is the reason it gets only 4 stars. But, it's still a solid read and well packaged as well.
I will test to be as concise as I can about this graphic novel. The book, adapted from Zahn's trilogy of novels, is so amazing I can't even do justice to it with words. It is sheer brilliance! The book is broken down into each of the three novels from the trilogy, and each one is handled beautifully. The writing- particularly the dialogue- is classic Star Battles all the way! Luke sounds like Luke. Han sounds like Han, etc. And the fresh characters(there are numerous, but only a handful of true "players") are every bit as real to the feel of what a Star Battles hero should be like as the original cast. The addition of Thrawn, Kaarde, C'Baoth and Jade alone give this epic a new yet familiar Star Battles globe to delve into. The artwork is divided amongst 3 various artists, each with his own special style. DO NOT WORRY about this, however! The styles may be different, but they don't impede the flow of the story in any way. In fact, I felt just the opposite. I liked the changes between chapters/books. The changes never had you guessing,"Which hero is that supposed to be?" or "What planet are they on now?". Everything is seamless. You just obtain treated to a series of 3 very talented artists who give each chapter a slightly various edge. It's kinda like how "A Fresh Hope" felt a small less dark than "The Empire Strikes Back." And "Empire" gave method to a kind of various emotional makeup of the final installment, "Return of the Jedi." All 3 were exciting and full of fantasy/sci-fi/action/adventure(as well as some drama, romance and comedy thrown in for amazing measure). Well, the writing, artwork and story/plot throughout this attractive hardcover is no exception.I can't say enough about how wonderul this book is! It feels like you're watching Episodes 7,8, and 9 unfold in front of your eyes! And for those of you who are only familiar with the movies, this book is one of the rarer EU stories that requires no previous knowledge of any of the other EU Star Battles books or closing, all I can say is that I felt like a child again as I read this book(being a child when I first saw the original trilogy). And I know I will reread it over and over again, much as I watch the movies over and over. So, if you wanna know what happened to everyone from the original trilogy of films after the curtain dropped, look no further! Go out and buy this awesome graphic novel. You won't regret it! May the Force be with you!
Never did I expect, after so a lot of years down the road, that Dark Horse finally compiled the entire collection of the Thrawn Trilogy into this remarkable hardcover edition. If I had known then, I wouldn't have wasted my time collecting the individual 6-book problems of each series, and the individual 3 tradepaperback series - I guess all those individual comic problems are worth much more now! However, it still delighted me to, once again, purchase and keep the entire collection in my e Thrawn Trilogy hardcover edition is a must-have for all die-hard Star Battles fans out there. Ever since Timothy Zahn released his 3 novels 20 years ago, starting with Heir To The Empire, readers have always wonder what ysalamiri or an Interdictor cruiser would look like. Now we know. The comics writers have edited out, but also retained quite a lot of the nuances and verbal speech that the characters use. I guess something will definitely be lost in translation, otherwise this comic adaptation would be more than 800 pages! Timothy Zahn did a remarkable job bringing each and every hero back to life, which kick-started the novel/comics franchise of the Star Battles Expanded up, I'm looking to purchase the Dark Empire complete collection. I'm like all die-hard Star Battles fans out there. The books just can't satisfy the thirst for more action, adventure and stories from this awesome y the Force be with us all!
