So those things from the trailer lined up over the planet we all thought were capitol ships are actually "bombers" huh?  They look like horribly dressed up B-Wings.  I think the idea is they're like a flying fortress and they attempted to borrow the B-Wing aesthetic but... ugh.

They reminded me more of Nebulon-B frigates....just smaller.

Did you look at the Lego set?  It looks like an oversized B-Wing with additional turrets.

I'm calling scale shenanigans on the "bomber."  That thing in actual minifigure scale would be huge

Re-watching the trailer, those things are easily the size of a small corvette or something.  There's a shot of a tie fighter passing behind one at close range that's good for scale.

But yeah.  I think they're ditching the idea of fighter-bombers, and actually playing with the idea of huge lumbering weapons platforms, more like B-17s and B-29s in WWII.  I guess it's not a bad idea in and of itself, but against things like star destroyers, anything that big and slow, no matter how well armed or armored, is just a big fat target.

And the stupid thing is still ducking fugly as hell.

That's a good reminder.  The Lego set is horribly undersized.  And the design is terrible no matter how big or small it is.

All I can think of is episode 4, when they are on that bridge, and the sister was saying something about "for luck"

Thanks much, George.

That did everything that the teaser DIDN't do for me. It gave me chills....maybe because I absolutely LOVED music in that behind the scenes video. Man.....when you here the Force theme hit.....crap, I teared up. I'd love for that to be part of the soundtrack. No I'm going to watch it again. :D

Equal parts gut punch with Carrie Fisher's "it's about family" and belly laugh with "it's a wrap".

Good stuff.

Agreed.  THAT makes me feel excited, and want to watch the movie!  (Unlike the previously released trailer... :roll: )
