So, it’s that time again. The third instalment of Moon is beginning to hove into view. With it is the introduction of a very special kind of evil. Revealed briefly in Moon 2, BunBun Warmheart is a villain that had everything going for him. Now his crimes against humanity mean not even his cute little face can get him off. Our hero, Moon and Shades will be facing this little bleeder directly. What will they find out? What will they glean from this little furry bastard?
This is very much the start of the first story arc for Moon. The introduction is over – now it’s all about the investigation! Moon and his new partner, Shades Rodriguez are about to start dog paddling in dangerous waters, and there be sharks there. Heavily armed, laser guided, furry faced sharks that want to bite their legs off. With guns. And things. Threats will come from directions you’d never expect. You have been warned.
Evil is back. And it’s sitting on a raised chair in an interrogation room at the heart of the Agency.
Darth Vader you fool! Anakin Skywalker hasn’t had the poontang for some time it would appear. Peter Serafinowicz has given us some insight into the life of Darth Vader, clearly torn between the fact that he is finally feeling human thoughts and the fact that he has a johnson like a screwdriver.
With Moon 2 on it’s way the lines are beginning to be drawn. Each character has his part to play in the oncoming craziness so to mark this each will have a distinct character print. 2 more will appear later in the week. These may not be the final designs but we thought you’d wanna take an early look.
Darth Sidious, of course perfectly embodied by Ian McDiarmid in the feature films was for us played by Marcus Sinclair. A singular individual its hard to imagine anybody who embodied more perfectly all that Sidious was. His impression of him was incredible. Sinclair appeared in front of a review board of Lucasarts representatives to confirm that he could play the part and it was in no way a sure thing. There was deep concern from Lucasarts that no recognisable characters be represented live to an audience out of fear that it would undermine the event. The only exceptions were, of course Vader and the Storm Troopers. Sinclair’s performance was certainly impressive enough to get them on board and we had our evil emperor. The only real problem was that he rarely dropped out of character. Nefarious, calculating and naughty to the last, Sinclair became a genuine thorn in the side of any actor dressed as a Jedi. Utilising the mighty Vader (Daniel Vivien) throughout his reign of terror, all the actors could do when faced with him was fall before him. I took a pummelling on day one frankly. Occassionally, with the aid of force pushes from the assembled public he would be defeated but even then he rarely gave up. Marcus Sinclair, we salute you, you really are an evil little sith!! 😉
Lord of the Sith Darth Vader - who pursues the last of the Lost Jedi
Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious
Moff Yung - Commander of the Imperial Fleet decimated by Govija Kaoli and Mooba Choobi
The new Empire seeks to decimate and hound the remaining Jedi. But foremost, and with the greatest threat to Emperor Palpatine’s power gone or under his own command it focusses now more on expansion and anchoring its control over the galaxy. Where ever possible the Jedi will attempt to stop this from happening. Jedi Master Ca De Nas holds the controlled Anakin Skywalker in place long enough for some Jedi to escape the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Master Govija Kaoli and Padawan Mooba Choobi annihalate Star Destroyers in their pursuit to redress the balance, fighting alongside the remaining Separatist forces. Jedi Master Jordo Pash draws Vader into conflict on a barren Moon, far from innocent bystanders for a final showdown. Although the Sith and their cohorts believe they have effectively won, while one single Jedi remains in the galaxy, hope is not lost. So there.
