The latest episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures offers tie-ins to both The Clone Wars animated series and The Force Awakens. On the run from Naare (Grey Griffin), the Freemakers crash land their damaged ship on Takodana where they meet both Maz Kanata (Grey Griffin) and Hondo Ohnaka (Jim Cummings). While Maz offers a few words of advice to the kids, and a gift for Rowan (Nicolas Cantu), Hondo only gives them the difficult job of stealing Varactyl eggs to earn enough money to repair their ship.
The latest issue is more a military comic with the squad learning to trust their new commander while performing their orders from the Emperor. While Stormtroopers have gotten a bad name (given their inability to hit anything resembling a target), writer Jason Aaron and artist Jorge Molina show that this is a different breed of soldier than those other walking targets seemingly trained solely to be shot down by the Rebellion.
