The former ropes the later into a complicated con involving the selling of stolen Imperial blasters to multiple buyers including space pirates, Hutts, and even the Empire itself. Her quick thinking and manipulation of each situation can’t help but impress her fellow scoundrel (even when she puts his life in danger).

Darth Vader #3 #comic reviewIn order to serve his master and earn his new lightsaber, Darth Vader‘s journey leads him to the Mid Rim and the River Moon of Al’doleem in search of a former Jedi in exile.

We’ve normally seen Darth Vader as an unstoppable force of nature. Here, early in his resurrection from Anakin to Vader, the character is not yet the Sith Lord the galaxy will come to know and fear. Although apparently ready for death should it come, Master Kirak Infil’a is by no means eager to fall to Vader.

Season two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures begins with the Freemakers finding a new home with the Rebellion. While the humans prove their value with repairs and ability to trade for parts, Roger (Matthew Wood) ends up getting into trouble (although one of his stunts does earn him a medal when he unintentionally helps the Rebel Fleet take down a Star Destroyer). Another of Roger’s screw-ups gets both the robot and Rowan (Nicolas Cantu) involved in a bombing run. Even Zander (Eugene Byrd) gets some short-lived glory by taking down an entire squadron of TIE Fighters… before blowing himself up.
