From TFN, with comments in [] :

Sompeetalay from www.teekay-421.be sends in more observations to our earlier post about Episode II notes from the new Official Site's Holonet News (http://www.holonetnews.com/46/) :

* Slyther Bushforb, a Nuknog background character seen last week in a picture with the 2 Dugs in Dex's Diner, is confirmed as a Private Investigator. [looks sort of like a larger Ark Roose]

* Species of Toonbuck Toora is confirmed: Sy Myrthian (homeplanet was already known). The seperation from the Republic of Sy Myrth is also confirmed, this also proves Toonbuck is part of the CIS. [Confederacy of Independant Systems]

* Techno Union Foreman Wat Tambor is mentioned in the article about Baktoid Workshop

* Intergalactic Bank Clan Chairman San Hill is mentioned

* Senators Tikkes (Calamari), Po Nudo (Ando) and Tendau Bendon (Ithor) are mentioned.

* Pabs Tyrell also pops up. He's one of Ratts Tyrell's sons and in name of the Ratts Teyrell Foundation he wants Podracing to be banned. In this article the Foundation manages to close down an arena on Caprioril. Unfortunately they never managed to close down the Swoop arena, because an Assassin Droid will murder more than 2000 spectators on Caprioril during a Swooprace. [So that explains the annoying scene with Mrs. Tyrell and kids on the TPM DVD.]


* * *


Also, there is word that Yarael Poof has been replaced on the Council with the reptilian Sarr Labooda, seen in the attached photo. Not a whole lot of personality, but what can I do about it?

Yeah..I would have liked to seen Yarael again. I don 't really care for his "replacement."
Like you said. What can you do?

Nice pic Tenebrous, I'm not really excited by that guy/gal either.

Is it just me, or is Obi-Wan gonna be doing a lot of glaring at Anakin in this movie ? :stupid:

Wouldn't you? I mean in trailer 3 Anakin DID treat Obi-Wan like he was some Sith. :p

I'm throwing in with the Sarr Labooda camp. He looks cool.

Poof was just a big Q-tip.

That sucks. I liked Yareal Poof. I was hoping to see him be made into a deluxe figure. His replacement is alright though, still I liked Yareal Poof.

Well, if I remember right, some members of the Council are only appointed for a few years at a time. I'm guessing that Yaddle and Yarael just got cycled out.

A few more minor characters, from T-Bone's Cinescape:

Ko Sai is Kamino's chief scientist and is responsible for the clone factory. She has very light skin - it's just about white, far as I can tell. Taun We has a sort of greyish tint to her skin but Ko Sai is pretty white but similar in height and features. She wears a short, white jacket with three dark stripes that go around the elbow area. The sleeve cuff is also dark - possibly black. She wears a dark piece over her middle under her jacket and her pants are dark as well with a couple of thin, white lines running around the pelvic area.

Though the pants are dark, there are long, rippled, white coverings that go over the front of the legs which, from the front, give the appearance of white legs. It looks like leather or rubber or something. She wears really long white boots with black bottoms.

The cool thing, however, is not her clothing. She has this funky utility belt on with big white pouches on it and these two aqua colored tubes that run from two spouts sticking off of the front of the belt and go around to the back. I'm not sure what they are.


I couldn't find this before, but the name of the Neimoidian seen standing next to Nute Gunray is Gilramos Libkath.




This movie has so many minor characters, hardcore collectors are going to be going insane keeping up with them.

Yes, it's almost like LFL are giving extras and cameos names to deliberately increase the merchandising possibilities. If we all know the names of the characters in the background when the film opens and start asking Hasbro for them they make more toys and LFL get more returns. Because, they do after all take a percentage from hasbro for the rights to use that characters likeness and name......

I'm too cynical sometimes. I like some of these background characters already and I'm starting to compile a mental list of the ones I'd like tosee made into toys.... I'm also a muggins who buys into the crass commercialisation of the movies.... :rolleyes:

I like the Dugs in AOTC. I like this shot and wonder if it ties into the coruscant chase. maybe Anakin drops past them? Is this Pabs Tyerell as mentioned above? Which one is the Dug? Any names for Dugs apart from Seboca and Rednax which were thrown out by fans some time ago?

Bonus points to Jedi Clint for not only recognizing the joke, but also digging up a picture of the old arcade machine, and one that shows two shots of the game screen, as well. :)

I got the joke too ! I'm late to the thread, but can I have some points too Binks ? :p :p

Jargo, that pic you posted is great, the Dug/Doug looks kinda threatening. A very nice CGI expression, in my opinion. But I don't know if I care for the Tyrell (?) character. She's just . . . weird. Freaky almost, like a psychotic clown.

Honestly... who the heck cares??? I hate it when they start doing stuff like this. It's the minutae like this that gets Lucas sidetracked. He forgets that this has nothing to do with the forwarding of the real plot and it all becomes a huge mess.

Jargo

Well it keeps the EU fans happy and out of our hair doesn't it? :)

Found this pic of San Hill of the banking clan at episode-x who found it at TFN.
it reminds me of Fred Gwynne of Herman Munster fame and was also in Car 54 where are you? And was also in Pet Cemetary. What a freak this guy looks!

The Confederacy conference on Geonosis should be a very fascinating scene, in that all of these aliens genuinely believe that they are doing good for those they represent by forming this well-knit Separatist movement. And they're all being herded by Palpatine and Dooku who really doen't care for their existence in the first place...the beginning of the de-alienification of the most powerful factions in the galaxy.



I'll be extremely happy when (if) we get the conference table playset and aliens that can *SIT* around it.

Not really a character mention, but this is going to look really freaky on the big screen:

Jargo
03-24-2002, 01:02 PM
Yippee!!
That pic is so wizard! Totally gonzo! I'm so pleased there's finally a pic of the clones without helmets. Obi passing overhead with two Kaminoans is cool. So that thing they're all headed for would be - what? Looks like the carousel of death from Logans run to me. Are those doors they're headed for in the side of that round thing? Clues, we need clues....

It looks like they are proceeding toward that thing to get their helmets.

Thanks Tenebrous, that was awesome :cool:

Wow that is a cool shot Lord Tenebrous, does anyone have a picture of the Bouncer from the OutLander NightClub? I was a Bouncer in my younger, dumber days and would love to see the Bouncer that has the brass to tells two Jedi to go **** off...

It's a giant cleansing system. Dirty Clones go in, clean clones come out!:D

here's a pic of Aayla Secura from the official site that was attached to an article where they saidd that Amy whatsherface who plays the character is an ILM staffer. Jobs for the boys and girls eh? Another legitimate actor out of work because a teagirl got the gig..... :rolleyes:

Lord Tenebrous
03-26-2002, 06:33 PM
I wonder why she got the job :rolleyes:


One thing that will never be mentioned in the saga...roadside assistance.

Jargo
03-26-2002, 10:08 PM
Something I don't understand is why the flames are the same as you get for a gas explosion. Think she uses shell in that thing? All these films use yellow explosions and fires and there's no reason why the flame couldn't be white or pink or even green. And why smoke? Couldn't a fire in a vehicle made of god knows what materials burn without smoke? It's too earthly. Too familiar. And why is Zam running toward the vehicle and not away from it? Is she dazed and confused? Or just plain stupid like all the bounty hunters in the saga? Nice pic though once you lighten it a bit so you can make out the bystanders properly. The other pic that was posted with this one at the official site earlier today has a photoshopped in Yoda on a publicity shot of the good guys in Palpatine's office. Yoda looks so pasted in there it's unreal how unreal he looks :) Orn Free Taa rocks though. He's such a lady killer with his Twi'Lek chicks. Nambi Bambi or Pambi or whoever they are these days. Green and blue. Haven't we got yellow and purple Twi'Leks now as well? Can't wait for them to make figures of some more colours so I can have a harem of rainbow coloured Twi'Lek chicks round Orn Free Taa in my senate display :D

A rather...interesting...piece over at Red 6 Encyclopedia, under the Outlander Club (http://web.qx.net/red6/aliens/Coruscant/Outlander.html)



Elan Sleazebaggano

Human male- Former drug pusher who reconsidered his life after meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi... Later became a Doctor and hung out with an Aqualish thug in a backwater Cantina.


I dunno, but I guess there could be stranger connections...

Please no, do not ever say that that kid that tires to sell Kenobi death sticks becomes Dr. Evezan. Ok, some EU is pretty good, but that is just really, really, really lame. :rolleyes:

This is why I try to avoid most EU altogether. Trying to fit in every little character's backstory into the general Star Wars galaxy is trivial and pointless, IMO.

I really don't care if "extra #3" in Mos Espa was hired by Jabba's brother's best friend's roomate to kill "extra #2" at the Pod Race...:rolleyes:

Its crap like this, (and trivial things star wars actors do in their real life) that TFN smears all over their site, who cares...

From the Scrapbook:

Adi Gallia is still on the Jedi Council. Her cousin, Stass Allie, dresses almost identically and is seen in the battle on Geonosis.

The new council consists of Adi Gallia, Oppo Rancisis, Even Piell, Shaak Ti, Saesee Tiin, Ki-Adi-Mundi (now a Jedi Master), Yoda, Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Depa Billaba (who does not join the Geonosis battle), Eeth Koth, and the new Coleman Trebor.



Coleman? The dino dude is Coleman? :mad:
