Star Wars Rebels: The Wynkahthu Job
November 28, 2016 8:03 AM - Season 3, Episode 9 - Subscribe

The morally dubious pirate, Hondo, returns with an offer the rebels cannot refuse, which leads our heroes to a doomed Imperial cargo hauler caught in the whirling winds of hungry maelstrom on a gas giant. As expected, things don't go quite as planned.

"The Wynkahthu Job" is the ninth episode of Rebels season three, check out its episode guide for more info!

Better than the last one!

The droids looking exactly like space marines form 40k kept messing with me.

My sentiments exactly on the quality. It had even less to do with potential character development and the overall Thrawn arc than "Iron Squadron," but it was much more entertaining. I think it was better paced and better written, and just well, better pretty much everything. This is the type of 'filler' episode that I'm pretty happy with.

The droids, according to Rebel Recon were based off of the Dark Troopers from the Dark Forces FPS game. I have no idea how that works with the 40K chronology of who came first, though. On twitter, someone commented it was a missed opportunity not to have the droids be the same as Rogue One's K-2SO. At first I agreed, but then I realized, they probably didn't want the new friendly droid in the upcoming movie to be seen by kids as the bad guy and being blasted to pieces over and over.

Next week....we return to Lothal. Erm.
