The artist did a lot of covers for the German Perry Rhodan novels. It looks like creative swipes from iconic spaceships happened more than once in the series. Not sure if these are the same artist.

Thanks. For a moment there I was wondering if Lucas or ILM had “borrowed” the design from some obscure pulpy book cover.

However, it’s interesting that the artist choose to add domes to the ship (presumably to differentiate it somewhat) since the Interdictor Star Destroyers introduced in the EU in the 90’s more-or-less did the same thing.

It’s possible either way. Lucas borrowing the design for Chewie is well documented.

I know this guy from somewhere! 😉

And you don’t have to look too far into vintage science fiction illustrations to find giant round balls of Death.

It could just be because a new photoshoot with Mark couldn’t happen for some reason.

Yeah, because Mark speaks his mind. They don’t want him near the press.

It’s a darn good thing he doesn’t have one of those twitter things to bypass the publicity machine. 😛

And here’s a leaked photo of his true TROS apperance. 😉

Note Luke still has a glove on his hand. And since we didn’t see the mechanical hand fall off when he disappeared, all bets are off. 😉

I’ve seen it pointed out that the glove has been taken from a The Last Jedi photo and pasted into the new photo. So we can’t be sure what type of hand he will actually have in the movie.

Why would they do that? Just to misdirect?

Couldn’t we just let this thread die ? There are plenty of interesting edits of TLJ around, radical or conservative edits to almost every taste, made by very nice people who don’t try to make profit out of it, so let us forget about whiny bi***** like Ivan, please.

Let’s rise above petty name calling. We’re better than this.

Are we though? C’mon silverwook, you’ve been here longer than most of us. You can’t have missed that this is pretty par for the course behavior 'round these parts.

Damn right I have. Long enough to recall a level of civility that’s sorely lacking here these days. One can make their point without stooping.

A brief description of the linked video usually helps, so people don’t waste their time on something they usually wouldn’t watch?

the title of the video is “Star Wars: Rebels - Why it Sucks”. i can see why our Jesta friend didn’t want to tell anyone what it was.

Not to mention youtube has an annoying habit of beginning to play a video before the title text loads these days.
