That was pretty cool actually.

Shadows well done, distance fade well done, even the sound was great. Seriously excellent work there.

That's impressive as hell.

Careful now, you'll have some "truther" finding this video and using it as "proof" that we really have been hiding a secret empire base and so on...

R2D2 could also fly in Episode II.  Once.  And never again.  Even though it could have been used in dozens of situations in subsequent episodes.

But, who cares about continuity and timelines related to fictional technology?  Twist and bend and outright break the "rules" created in Episodes IV thru VI because, hey, it looks cool!  Shiny!

I'm not sure what rule Star Destroyers are breaking by taking off from land, as we never saw them take off from anywhere in 4-6. You have a point about R2D2, except for the fact he flew in Episode 3.

Yes, the Lusankya did launch from Coruscant after being buried under the city, however it had a repulsor lift sled specially mounted for it.  Super Star Destroyers did not regularly land.

Imperial (Imperator) star destroyers were not supposed to enter atmospheres, let alone land.

Victory-class star destroyers had repulsor lift drives and maneuvering fins that allowed them to enter atmospheres for pursuit of targets and closer bombardment of the surface, but not for landing.

It could be that in between "Sith" and "Hope" Artoo had been modified with a different set of tools and had his booster rockets removed.

Accalamators dropped Blizzard Force off...and Imperial Landers.

Frankfurt's airport is an impressive facility.   You see a lot of airline logos there that don't make it to North America.

It's cute. The AT-AT is animated completely weightless, however.

The land based field generator was pointing in the wrong direction to protect the Death Star III in orbit.

When we're looking at something that was feasible for someone to casually do on their computer for an offhand Youtube upload that would have taken a couple of million dollars in 1980.  Then we're going to see the new film and then biatch and wonder why we're so blasé about it, no matter what the hype.

I was going to mention that and ask if Clone Wars was considered canon.

Just out of curiosity, what would be the advantage of creating a machine that walked on four "legs" (I assume that's the ak-ak being how I was never a Star Wars fan)? I'm not criticizing---but since I haven't seen the SW movies I'm not sure of that machines purpose. Help a brutha out?

The advantage would presumably be the same as it is for animals.

I don't think they make custom vehicles to fit environments? Who knows, its make believe...

I'll give you 6/10 because I posted this, and you got somebody else to respond, but "ak-ak" is a bit too much to claim you weren't trolling.

Nope, truly not trolling. I've always been a Star Trek fan and when Star Wars came out I made a point to NOT see it. Yep, might sound strange but, you know, being a kid and all. Flash forward many years later when I finally saw the original SW and I didn't care for it a bit. Of course, by then it was no longer "new" and I was no longer a kid so the magic of it was lost on me. I know some of the characters, of course, but not most.

A lot of this reminded me of a similar thing some did a few years back:

Venator

-class star destroyers were also perfectly capable of fighting and maneuvering in atmosphere as well, and that's canon (TCW had a number of episodes where Venators do precisely that, namely "Jedi Crash").

Funny enough, this came up in my last Star Wars D6 game as an Imperator-class Star Destroyer that had been commandeered by the Inquisitorius dropped into atmosphere to lock down an area in response to PC buggery. Nobody in the game really questioned it, since they know star destroyers have gangbuster particle shielding and enough power to stay stationary in low orbit.

Plus, the last story culminated in destroying an  Imperial II-class star destroyer by forcefully de-orbiting it and letting it burn in entry. Took an entire fleet of frigates and light freighters, a Mon Cal star cruiser ramming it, and a massive boarding operation to get the job done.
