I think Boba Fett will be the next GL because
1. referred to in the book of boba as Lord Fett (GL worthy name)
2. No Bounty Hunter/Scoundrel GL (who better than a Fett)
3. Scion of Jango was released after boba claimed the throne and repainted his armour (weird, but a sign Scion of Jango was designed for territory war)
4. There is no Revan equivalent leader for a scoundrel/BH, especially as Mando series is popping and boba beginning.
5. Because scion of jango was a conquest character they will not release another boba lower than that so will be at least equal in difficulty to acquire or a GL.
6. Synergies, Lord Fett would a GL worthy link to Bounty hunter clan (boss etc), Gamorrean guard and tusked (long awaited buff, Mando and fennec.
Now, if he is a GL I personally think these will be the required characters for this event
Bossk, Dengar, IG88, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, Gamorrean Guard, Tuskan Sharman (or new tuskan), Mando beskar, Slave 1, Fennec and series related characters not yet seen.
These are just some thoughts, love to hear comments
I've enjoyed the Gammoreans on the show and would be very interested in a new Tuskan.
Bounty hunter/scoundrel/Tuskan synnergy?
I would shell out some bucks for this one.
Yeah, honestly a third Mando is a better option than a third Boba
Also, Boba Fat is alredy a "GL" on TW terms, so no sense on adding another GL to that lol
and technically SoJ is the boba currently from his show/Mandalorian from what I understand so I doubt they will give him another version without a radical change, especially since SoJ is already the second-highest character unlock level. (at least to me there are the second highest)
We need six more months before the next GL
I don't know...cg being creative created CQ...
No spoilers but it is possible for both of them to come as the next 2 GLs.
To get one thing out of the way, some have been calling for, much as I and many like spin offs I think GLs are likely to come from the films. I.e. NOT Thrawn etc.
So far we have
Rey (sequel trilogy)
Kylo (sequel Trilogy)
JML (sequel Trilogy)
SEE (sequel Trilogy)
JMK (prequel trilogy)
Lord Vader (prequel trilogy)
Note, all films, no original trilogy.
No legends, no cartoons, no comics, no weird offline random anything, all stuff people who only go to cinemas would have seen.
What is weird ARE NO original trilogy GLs.
Leia, Han (like yeah, many already), Chewie, R2D2, Luke, others).
I dunno what is in CG's heads but if you want a LEGEND then it has to mean something to mass market and that means films and so far original trilogy is somewhat missing.
Luke, Leia, R2, C3P0, Chewie LS
Vader (as proper OG vader) DS.
Maybe I am wrong, not first time, but I think GLs should be film related. Not everyone has Disney+ and many, many do not know outside easy lore. A GL should appeal to all.
I'm not being funny, but there's not a Star Wars fan alive who doesn't know who Boba Fett is, regardless of whether they like him. And there is more to Star Wars than just the movies. Heck, the prequels are terrible yet there's two GLs from them. There's all the Disney+ shows coming out and the long comic runs. Boba may not have a lot of screen time in the films, but in the comics he has a much bigger impact.
Now you add in 2 mandalorians that were tagging along with bo katan, you add paz vizla (the guy with minigun and jet back) mayfield, koska reevs, lang, that imperial officer the one from the ship take over, the HK assassin droid, and all of a sudden lots of money to be made if we get a mando GL with dark saber
You have not disagreed with a thing I said though.....
Still, it is weird there are no GLs from original trilogy. LS is harder than DS but Vader is obvious then others but still plenty left LS.
I don't object to others, just so far all have been film major characters and main meaning main story arc (which Boba is not). Jabba would be an obvious one though I guess figuring out how to implement would be interesting but still.
relic 9 and the eventual relic 10 would like to have a word about it not being very monitizable
The prequels are terrible? C'mon guy. You could say the sequels are hot garbage and they have 4 GLs but the prequels especially ROTS which is what the GLs are from are great. ROTS is probably the best Star Wars movie ever. They should do 2 more GLs from it or that time frame like clone wars, Yoda and Dooku or Grievous would work.
You said GLs should only come from the films. If that is true then there's essentially no real GLs left. What did Jabba actually do other than stick his tongue out as he choked to death? There's already a GL for Luke, Vader even if they are the wrong ones. There's too many Solo's and Chewies already.
I see people mention Snoke as GL worthy and he is just SEEs sock puppet. If we are to assume all main groups should have GLs then there is a massive Scoundrel-shaped hole. Boba DS and Mando LS would be a great way to fill it and appeal to newer fans through shows like The Mandalorian and BoBF.
Don't get me wrong, I would quite happily have no more GLs. But I really don't see why the only GLs should be force users. OG Leia, Han and Chewie are all worthy of that status, as is the original Emperor.
1. ROTS is not the greatest Star Wars movie ever. The most iconic scene in the entire series belongs to ESB when Luke confronts Vader and learns about who he is.
2. How big is the age gap between tiny Anakin and Padme in Phantom Menace?
3. Great effects, terrible script with wooden acting.
4. Jar-Jar Binks says hi. Hands down, the worst character ever invented.
I will give you Mace Windu, Jango and some excellent villains.
I still expect Mando GL, next though.
My big bet (on a personal level), is that they’re building a Star Wars version of the MCU, sort of. Mando, BoB, and Ahsoka will all merge into one big crossover where they fight Thrawn.
My bet is a GL Thrawn and a light side GL (something from the other three).
I'd like to point out that BoB isn't looking DS to me at all, have you watched the show??
That would be so cool, as much as I’m a boba fan if they were to bring in at Arcann thexan vaylin alongside valkorian, I would defo switch teams.
Tbh I can’t see thrown being a gl not as LVader being empire already and still the most recent gl. I got a feeling that mace windu may make a return in either obiwan or ahsoka and will be the perfect counter for boba.
Canonically, 5 years. It just looks really bad bc they first met when Ani was 9, but then they don't see each other for a DECADE. No romantic encounters happen until he's 19 and she's 24, which is totally fine.
Personally, I think the prequels are better than people give them credit for. I agree the dialogue (especially romantic dialogue) is terrible, but the world-building and politics are better in the prequels than the originals
More on topic though, I think Mandalore Din from upcoming season 3 of Mando and Thrawn from Ahsoka have great potential, or as always Jabba as a scoundrel GL. Animating Jabba to only fill one character slot on-screen though would be challenging
