The Exchange were always the only syndicate worth mentioning.

Ummmmm.....what the fark?


How the fark do they justify including some no name group that rose to power after the first death star went kablooey and got smashed by jabba before the second one?

Where's Bala-Tik and the Guavian Death Gang, or Tasu Leech and Kanjiklub?

Because Star Wars fans will buy any and all old shiat.

Those groups don't rise in prominence until sometime after RotJ.  There is another unnamed cartel that rises to prominence and collapses about 6 years before TFA.  It seems likely that the two gangs you named probably made their names after that.

If you're talking about the Crymorah, they existed long before ANH, there's just not a lot of stories that include them so their history is a little fuzzy.

Same with the Droid Gotra which the article insinuates didn't exist until after RotJ.

Originally there was 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm, but then Disney absorbed Lucasfilm and crushed 20th Century Fox. I guess you could make a galactic turf war movie out of that, but it'll never rise to the excitement of The Godfather. Probably not even The Godfather Part 3.

The only other bounty hunter show I want is HK-47 as a bounty hunter

We did get IG-11...

Also, Dark Forces now semi-cannonical after Rogue One sort of retconned it out of existence...

I appreciated IG-11 finally being the aimbot that robots never are in movies and tv.  Of all the things in the Clone wars, and I can't believe all the hatred of the Holdo maneuver when somehow a hundred thousand robots can't deliver an unstoppable wall of blaster fire on everything within range.

That was even a subplot in Rebels, when (whoever the hell actually wanted it) finally got to see Stormtroopers vs Battle Droids.

The droids were so inaccurate that their controller's plan was to have them shoot in the general direction of Kanan and Ezra, and for their lightsabers to deflect the shots towards the Empire. Because that was somehow more accurate.

TIL: Han Solo was a drug smuggler.

/Wonder how Nancy Reagan would've taken that news...

The Han Solo novels by Brian Daly (written after Splinter of the Mind's Eye, before Heir to the Empire) are actually pretty good, and make it clear that the *only* cargo Han won't deal in are slaves.

They're part of the reason I liked "Solo". His description of Han's early years matched what was in the movie.

She only cared about drugs in the eighties, back in the seventies when Han was dealing she would probably have sucked his dick for a rail.

....


If we are reading this right, you are saying you liked a pile of shiat movie because a book written decades ago matched it?

Do you understand how time works?

I don't get this response. Are you saying that if you liked a book, and later on you see a less than perfect movie which reminds you of that book, you shouldn't like the movie because the book is older than the movie?
