    Secret Apprentice Evolutions speculations

    [FONT=Arial]Set in the dark times between the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Rebellion, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed video game explores the aftermath of Order 66 and the continued evolution of Darth Vader. The son of a fallen Jedi is abducted by Vader to be his secret apprentice. As a young adult, the apprentice must choose his destiny: Join Lord Vader and wipe out the remaining Jedi, or become a noble Jedi and bring hope to the galaxy![/FONT]
    They're trying to be coy about this, but I'm pretty sure the reason the Evolutions set works is because the character in the game could turn out to be either that evil Sith dude or that noble Jedi guy. The packaging suggests this, they all have the same build, the Jedi figure looks like the Secret Apprentice in the face, and the Sith and Jedi guys have the same lightsaber except for the peg and cortosis blades. Heck, even the cheat code it comes with says it gives the Secret Apprentice his "hooded Jedi" costume in the game.

    My only real questions are, why doesn't the Secret Apprentice get a deactivated lightsaber hilt the way the other 2 figs get?

    And who is this guy's Jedi father? That apparently could be why we keep calling him the "Secret Apprentice", the packaging says Vader took the son of a fallen Jedi to be his secret apprentice. Does that mean his father is a well-known Jedi, and if so, doesn't that mean his pops is one of the humans which limits it to Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Mace? Now that I've written it down, I'm betting it'll be Qui-Gon's secret son, it fits Qui-Gon's rogue nature and has something poetic about Vader finding and training Qui-Gon's hidden son, have him straddle the line between good and evil. AND it even gets Qui-Gon back into the larger saga since he's kinda been left at the wayside.

    Or maybe I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.

    Sorry, don'tknow aboutthe lightsabers, but. There is a lot of evidence that point to who VSA father is. It all point to Quinlan Vos. Now if that true, who knows. But, everything seen does support Vos as his father. Vos was in hidding on Kashyyyk, we get a PB. Early in the game, Vader face a rogue jedi, and find a child. Raises him to be his Apprentice. I'm not going to go through all the evidence, but this is the best. Take a looks at both pics below. And make your own guess.

    I can't see the second image. Link is bad.


    I do concur though that evidence has pointed towards Quinlan Vos as being the father of the Apprentice.

    I just can't wait to get to the point in the game where Vader says "You're Fired," to the Apprentice, then kills him...

    They did a good job because when i got the evo pack i thought the regular version of the apprentice was Vos. and from what i've seen the game begins of the wookie world...were Vos was hiding. So it makes a lot of sense that vos is the pops of this jedi.

    Honestly, I don't get why someone would prefer a guy in a helmet with little or no back story over a EU character, and if this guy in a helmet does have a backstory it's EU!!!!

    I fixed the link, it was missing the actual filename.

    I'm not seeing the visual connection to Vos there. I hope you're wrong though, not only doesn't it fit the packaging since Vos isn't a fallen Jedi, but it'd be yet another over-use of this character, and it would be a stretch in terms of age - Vos was a Padawan the same time Obi-Wan was, for him to have a young adult son soon after the events of ROTS is unlikely. But he was "married" and had a son, though that son was born the same time Luke and Leia were. Honestly, it'd annoy the crap out of me if it was Vos.

    With the photos I was showing the outifts. Looks pretty close. Age wise?? The Force Unleashed take place over a span of years, and nobody has said how long after ROTS, the events in the game take place. Princess Leia, and Obi-Wan are confirmed to have some part in the game. And when I said Rogue Jedi, I simply meant he escaped Order 66.

    My only real questions are, why doesn't the Secret Apprentice get a deactivated lightsaber hilt the way the other 2 figures do.
    what extra cortis blade and deactivated hilts. mine only came with the extra hilt for the Sith Lord.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Oh, yeah, the costumes have some similarity, I don't pay a lot of merit to that one though, how would he or Vader know to raid dad's closets? Just because you wear the same hat as the president doesn't make you his son.


    The set I have comes with 2 deactivated sabers, one that plugs onto Sith's belt, and another that slides into the holster on Jedi's hip. Those 2 hilts look the same except for the belt peg and the cortosis blades on the Sith version. The cortosis blades are at the end of Sith's saber hilt, they're represented on the role play toy as the spring-out blades (that saber also changes colors, another suggestion that Jedi and Sith in this set are both extensions of Secret Apprentice).

    Agreed, JT, but remember there is a code that, when entered, allows the player to change the Apprentices costume to that of his father. This outfit could be it.

    Yeah, but that could be anybody's costume, that's not exactly evidence that A points to B, if you catch my drift.
