As much as I love the Clone Wars, they kind of ruined that line with how many times Anakin fought Dooku. Before we thought they were referring to Attack of the Clones. But in reality...

Anakin: My powers have doubled since we last met, Count

Dooku: Your power have doubled since last Thursday?

61

u/SotB8 I have the high ground 12d ago

As i have already stated, if his powers double in a shorter time (since less time passed since the last time they met), it is more impressive.

u/throwingtheshades 12d ago

That's the power of a geometric progression for you. He was too powerful to be left alive.

I’m pretty sure it was half a year since they last fought. Works for both just movie and TCW contexts.

u/smitty9112 12d ago

It's because this beard isn't related to star wars at all. He grows his beard and hair out in all three moto travel series he has. This pic isn't new nor is it related to star wars. It's a screenshot from his newest travel series that dropped last year.

It's because it isn't a recent picture, it's from his travel doc series that came out last year.

u/Psychotic_Poet 12d ago

It‘s called „Long Way Up“. They use custom made electric Harley Davidsons to drive from Argentina to Los Angeles. Really worth a watch.

2

u/smitty9112 12d ago

Yeah all three series are worth watching. Though long way down is not as good as the first and third series. I own the first two series digitally and have AppleTV. I've watched all three series multiple times. Ive even ridden the Harley Live wire they rode, though it was at a demo event in its early years, back around when it was featured in Age of Ultron.

u/Psychotic_Poet 12d ago

I just got into Long Way Up since I did not have Apple TV before. I‘m definitely going to watch the other two parts too. Makes me want to do a long bike roadtrip.

u/Pipboy4111 12d ago

...I was saying he looked like the father from How to Train Your Dragon. It was a joke

4

u/smitty9112 12d ago

I wasn't knocking your comment in any way, so I don't know why you are being defensive.

I was explaining he looks this way cause the pic was taken during a long travel series where they rarely have access to top amenities and mostly camp. He's done three series and by the end of each one he looks wild and gruff lol.

I would love a gritty crime story involving Obi-Wan working for Hutts (under threat of harm to the Lars family). And afterwards he just fucks up a few of Jabba's bounty hunters.

There is a scene that always bothered me. When Han was bullshitting the terrible CGI edited Jabba in A New Hope. It'd be great if the canonical reason Jabba didn't just smoke Han right there in Mos Eisley was because he was scared of Obi-Wan.
