        It's interesting that they're setting this during the Clone Wars but doing it in a completely different style than the show. I kind of wonder if this might be a test for further specials, as we already know that the Lego Star Wars combo is a popular one.

      I enjoyed the episode. I liked Thrawn beginning his plot. And I love seeing Hondo and Rex and speaking Ugnaught.
