X-Wings spotted at Lower Pierce Reservoir

I popped by Lower Pierce Reservoir the other day in Singapore and thought this could be a great place to do a composite of some X-Wings doing a flyby above the surface of the reservoir (much like how the T-70 X-Wings flew above the lake on Takodana where Maz Kanata’s castle was located in The Force Awakens).

The X-Wings featured here are from my Kenner Power of the Force Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Starfighter toy vehicle (the ones behind the main are cloned).

Potential minor spoiler alert for Star Wars: The Force Awakens! You have been warned!

Last chance to turn back!

Ok. Looks like you’re still here which means you are OK with what is to be written after this.

“Here goes nothing!” – Lando Calrissian, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Star Wars: Rogue One is coming up in slightly less than a year from now and I am already excited by what’s in store.

First of all, the film will tell the story of how the Rebel Alliance stole the first Death Star plans from the Empire.

That’s right.

This is a prequel to A New Hope. I’m just gonna let that sink in a bit.

Although it is primarily a spin-off, this could just be the prequel that we’re looking for (sorry, George).

Secondly, we won’t have that many Jedi featured in the film as the main characters will mostly be those daring Rebel pilots and swashbuckling soldiers.

We need to remember that this film could take place in between Star Wars Rebels and A New Hope which means the Jedi Council was no more and most of the Jedi would have been in hiding or dead.

Darth Vader is rumoured to make an appearance though.

Instead of T-70s, we have the T-65s since I suspect that they would make an appearance in Rogue One. Could they only feature Y-Wings, the original starfighters of the Alliance before they stole the plans for the X-Wings from the Empire? But that’s non-canon now, right?

Ah. My head hurts just thinking about what got retconned and what stays. More luck winning a Wookiee in a game of Dejarik and surviving it than figuring out everything that’s going on post Legends.
