Speaking of Palpatine clones, I suggest changing them so they all look different from each other but in their own unique, mutilated ways, although one closely resembles Snoke but with some of Palpatine’s facial features — adds to the inference that Palpatine is horrible at manufacturing lifeforms, hence why his body is decaying and deteriorating, and why he can’t just make an entire army of Snokes.

EDIT: Also, make the clones in question dead, implying that Palps’ clone vessel and Snoke himself were barely successes.

TestingOutTheTest, I can’t wait to see what you come up with in After Effects to make the clones look so mutilated and perfect.

I’m not good at After Effects. I’d imagine poppasketti would make something like that

I literally laughed upon reading this, and found it kinda funny. And it isn’t hyperbole.

To add, I’m just a guy who gives out suggestions.

Omg can we not do spoilers. Literally waiting to get home to watch show and things are being spoiled/revealed on a non bad batch spoiler thread?

I don’t have many pet peeves, but this is one.

Why didn’t you drop everything in your life to watch it within 12 hours of its release, huh? Totally your fault.

(I’m with you, by the way. Maybe we can wait a day or two before mentioning spoilers?)

It’s a fairly inconsequential detail in the episode. I wouldn’t even call it a spoiler.

I’ve apologized and won’t do it again, but let’s at least understand that I wasn’t out here dropping major details on the episode and I had a valid reason to share the small detail that I did.

Dang it, you are right! My priorities are whack! Hahaha!

Also @jarjar I know it wasn’t done with malice or anything, I know you’re not like that. I’d say in the future, use spoiler tags to hide the comment based on movies or shows that just came out, regardless how big or small the thing is. No ill will against ya!

Okay, finally had a chance to watch the episode and go back through the thread. *cough* Spoilers *cough* 😉 (Thanks for going back through and hiding them!)

I think we should just leave the Palpy clones as-is. Changing the clone design might make it harder to identify who’s in the tank, and the red feels very “Sith-y.” Plus, just like the purple lightsaber, I like that the red color cuts through some of the monochrome Exegol murk. It makes the shot a little more visually interesting, imo.

If you want a lore-based reason, just say that the new version has rotted with age. Or different planets use different compounds.

Did a little more smoothing out on “I” and “am a.” Is it any better?

Also, maybe I’ve watched this clip too many times, but what if Palps says, “I am all the Sith. You are nothing. A scavenger girl is no match for the power in me.” Sade, you’re the expert - did we try it that way already? Would it make any significant difference to the scene?

Hell if I know.

lol i dont know why, but i thought it was funny at the end of the clip it zoomed in on palp’s face. but in all seriousness, I’m not sure if it truly matters if switching the “i am all the sith, u are nothing, a scavenger girl is no match for the power in me”. The “I am a jedi” line seems fluid. Though is there any way to stretch out the “am a jedi” part? funny because taking out the word “all” makes the line feel shorter and the nuance diminishes slightly imo.

Haha, I’m glad you liked the close up; that was basically me just cracking myself up at 3:00am.

I just tried slowing down the line a little, and to my ear, it completely loses the already soft “a” sound. Weirdly, I just hear “am Jedi,” so I think we might be stuck at the original tempo. (If anyone else wants to try changing the speed, I can share the .wav once we get the clip locked in.)

Understand that people don’t like other people deciding what is and isn’t a spoiler for them. Just tag and hide it next time.

I don’t mind the Palpy clones, I just don’t really get why he would be in such a bad shape and I don’t read that much from a 3 seconds shot. I would have been in favor to keep Snoke to be a clone, while TROS’s Palpy would (still) be a fucked up resurrected ROTJ’s Palpy.

I’ve gotta be honest, I had no idea how to do that at the time so that’s why this all happened. I also legitimately didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal, but I guess not.

EDIT: Oh yeah, also, I knew that the green tank was already finished by Poppa. I agree Sherlock that red feels more Sithy, but since it was already done I figured, “Why the hell not?”

Added detail

And this probably isn’t the last time we’re going to see these green tanks, so keep that in mind. (Mando season 3, Bad Batch episodes yet to release, etc.)

He’s shitty at making clones. Hence why his body is deteriorating, and why he can’t just make an army of Snokes or another Darth Vader.

Palpatine is not necessarily shitty at making clones. The power of the dark side has a shitty effect on Sith. So if the clones are made through technology, then they wouldn’t have already deteriorated. The clone vat shot is a 3 second shot and it looks fine the way it is. In fact if poppasketti made the tank glass even more opaque and dirty that would be fine.

Why do you think he conceived Rey’s father — a non-clone? Why do you think he didn’t make Snoke armies? And they did deteriorate — hence why Snoke looks so deformed.

Also, are you saying that he would’ve continued to deteriorate after sucking up the dyad’s life energy?

His post-dyad form still looks like a melty-face. Even the fully restored “true form” is one of degeneration.

Even when the story called for a youthful, rejuvenated threat, ‘OT imagery’ is such an unstoppable force of nature that you better watch out!

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
