    Wow, on first glance... I really don't like that at all. That is some super lazy design. Shark-man.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Does he speak with a Mexican-accent?

    I'm not sure if anyone will even get that reference.

    I don't, but if it has anything to do with Taylor Lautner, I'm kicking some ***.

    Oh, man, seeing that image makes me glad I don't follow the show.

    But revives my anger that Thundercats is being preempted tonight by it. But, hey, I guess the Tigersharks can't be in two series in the same evening.

    It was an old joke from the TV show Just Shoot Me. It took place sometime after Ep1 and before the premiere of Ep2 and David Spade was on a mission to uncover secrets about the new Star Wars movie and finds a spoiler about a shark that speaks with a Mexican accent to which he responds, "The man [George Lucas] is a genius, how does he do it?" Like I said, really obscure Star Wars reference there.

    That's the one episode of JSM I've never seen, how sad is that? I've seen nearly all the rest in original run. I thought you were making a reference to Robert Rodriguez's Sharkboy & Lava Girl.

    Like they released Thi Sen's Talz soldiers?

    C'mon Hasbro!

    I agree with Battle Droid (though Riff Tamsen is needed first).

    BTW, he is named after Biff Tanner from Back to the Future, and very slight homage is paid to that film series, as well as obviously Jaws.

    Like the Zillo Beast paid obvious homage, too.

    Maybe Clone Wars could do Top Gun, and have OddBall make Republic Fighter Weapons School? However, I do not want to see him singing to a girl in a bar. Maybe playing the Modal Nodes cantina hit on a keyboard - possibly. Anyway, make the episode Top Clone.

    They could also pay homage to Terminator, by designing a new battle droid with cyborg skin design, used as an assassin model. With shapeshifters available, because it's Star Wars, I'm not sure this is such a good idea though. Why use a human replicant droid? Well - Guri was one such droid. So they do use them in Star Wars. But who to assasinate? Palpatine? Dooku? Padme? Anakin? (it would have to be Dooku that sends that one).

    Star Wars did Predator with the Trandoshans. Star Wars has done Aliens with the 2nd Battle of Geonosis episodes.

    Indiana Jones? How would that work?

    Star Trek? Use Admiral Yularen and tell a story about a mission of the Resolute with him in command - maybe with Commander Cody and Captain Rex? They'd have to make it extraordinary to stand out from the rest of the episodes with these characters.

    They did submarine movies with the stealth ship, which was also like Wrath of Khan in its own way.
