Tag and Bink Are Dead (#1)
Tag and Bink are two soldiers aboard the Rebellion flagship Tantive IV when the Star Destroyer Devastator captures it. After almost being captured, they dress up as stormtroopers and get transported to the Death Star. They try to leave by stealing TIE fighters... twice. Darth Vader realizes his need for two TIE pilots as wingmen for his fight against the Rebel starfighters attacking the space station. As the comic illustrates, it is not the Millennium Falcon's fault that Vader is almost killed in the trenches of the Death Star, but due to Tag and Bink's lousy piloting.
Although the two TIE fighters they appeared to be in were destroyed, the next comic states they were in factin the background when Vader selected two pilots, and that they stole an Imperial landing craft and escaped from the Death Star moments before it exploded.
Tag and Bink Are Dead (#2)
The adventures of Tag and Bink continue as they venture through the events of the Star Wars original trilogy, meeting up with allies such as Lando Calrissian, villains such as Boba Fett, and the evil Emperor Palpatine. Tag and Bink eventually find themselves trapped on the Death Star II dressed as the Emperor's Royal Guards. After the confrontation between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the Rebels manage to destroy the Death Star II, killing Tag and Bink in the process (hence the title). Tag and Bink manage to live on as Force ghosts. Later to realize that they are trapped in purgatory.
Tag and Bink: Revenge of the Clone MenaceThis issue is a prequel to the previous Tag and Bink Are Dead issues. Tag and Bink are shown as children, haplessly trying to become Jedi with Master Yoda. They find Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala in a restaurant, as seen in Attack of the Clones, and later secretly gives tips to Anakin on how to keep his relationship with Padmé. Anakin eventually leaves Tag and Bink stranded on Naboo when he goes to Tatooine. It takes them three years to get back to the Jedi Temple, just in time to see clone troopers end the Jedi Order. They are confronted by the newly-formed Darth Vader, who spares them due to their past association, but they are told to give up their Jedi lives and move on. They do so. Tag and Bink Are Dead takes place about 20 years later.
Looks like the ultimate Joker is going to be equipped with bombs to emulate the Mob meeting scene at the beginning of the TDK movie. That's pretty sweet as the previous 1st version of the Joker came rather plain with only his pocket knife. Whatever it may come with, this is one helluva figure and I'm sure pre-order quotas will be snapped up the moment Hot Toys drop any slightest hint that this particular figure is a 'go'. So stay alert and stay tuned.....
I always knew I missed the chance to get the 1st Joker for a reason... :p
All of the events portrayed in the series are based on Ambrose's research and recorded interviews with the Easy Company surviving alumnis. All of the characters portrayed are based on actual members of Easy Company; some of them can be seen in prerecorded interviews as a prelude to each episode (their identities, however, were revealed only at the close of the finale).
I do get questions every now and then from friends and colleagues alike. Why 'rebel'? Why does everything has got to do with being rebellious? Why would you rebel with so many causes? Who made you so rebellious in the first place that you've decided to adopt the rebel nickname? The list goes on. Well, partly inspired by my fellow blogger Joshua's entry, where he pursued to explain his reasons for naming his blog as it is now, I find it fitting now to do the same, as too many inquiries (and speculations!) have been floating around concerning my blog's choice of name.
What bewilder me most was that Ferguson is still the same whiner as he was 10 or 15 years ago (in the early glory days of the EPL). At times I felt that Wenger was a bigger whiner (i.e "ze pitch was not even", "my players were not given enough rest to recover from midweek's game", "the ref wasn't on top of his game today" etc. etc.), but fresh from the aftermath of Manyoo's drubbing by Liverpool, this man manages to impress me more and more by giving out silly press statements...or as I would like to coin out as the 'Dog-ate-my-homework" analogy. So commonly heard again and again but relentlessly being repeated by the great manager.
Now, why can't he just accept that Liverpool was the more superior side on that fateful Saturday afternoon? We've witnessed most of the managers being sporting and giving credits to the winning side during post-match interviews, but I guess a loss (against a bitter rival at that!) translates into a bitter pill to swallow for Ferguson. His latest complaint/excuse was that he believed that the 12.45pm (UK time) kick-off time on Saturday has given the Merseyside team an unfair advantage, hence caused the downfall of the Devils. What the h***? The list gets more and more ridiculous every season. To cap it all off, Sir Alex even gave a press statement saying that "It is a hard one to take because I felt that we WERE the better team." Right Sir Alex........the 'better' team ONLY conceded 4 goals and managed to retaliate with one.
That is why, as a neutral fan (a supporter of neither of the so-called big 4 teams) it's always fun to experience the aftermath of any great match aka the war of words between managers....and to be amazed by how these great tacticians find world class excuses to go with each defeat! :p
Clone troopers are soldiers in the fictional Star Wars universe, cloned from Jango Fett, a Mandalorian bounty hunter. They first appeared in Star Wars Episode II (Attack of The Clones), and returned in Star Wars Episode III (Revenge of The Sith) where they played a pivotal role in initiating the Clone Wars and later in the eradication of the Jedi order/the set-up of the Galactic Empire. These clone troopers comprised the bulk of the Grand Army of the Republic during the war where they fought and often served under the Jedi knights of the old Republic.After the Clone Wars, them clonies served as the core nucleus for the armed forces of the Galactic Empire. In Attack of the Clones, it was revealed that the genetic template of the clone troopers was the bounty hunter Jango Fett, one of the most feared in the Galaxy. In exchange for huge payment and an unaltered clone "son", Boba Fett, Jango provided his genetic material and his Mandalorian battle training to the cloners of Kamino. The clone troopers were outfitted with armor styled after Mandalorian battle armor (notably the helmet and its T-shaped visor) and armed with weapons and vehicles produced in secret by Kuat Drive Yards, Rendili Stardrive, and Sienar Fleet Systems.
The Battle of Geonosis marked the first deployment of the clone troopers as well as the beginning of the Clone Wars. After Geonosis, clone trooper armies were led by Jedi generals, who were in turn accompanied by Clone Commanders. The clone troopers eventually carried out Order 66 at the whims of Chancellor Palpatine, turning on their Jedi generals. This marked the end of the Clone Wars, as well as the death of the Old Republic.After the war and the birth of the Galactic Empire, the clone trooper army was reorganised into the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps. The surviving clone troopers were fitted with new armor and weapons, and became the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps of the Empire led by the self-appointed dictator Palpatine. Because of their tendency to manipulation by the Kaminoans (who led a revolt against the Empire), Jango Fett clones throughout the force were slowly replaced by non-clone recruits. One of the few stormtrooper legions to remain "pure" (completely composed of Fett clones) throughout the era of the Empire was the fictional 501st Legion, which was named in honor of a real-world fan group called the 501st Legion.
