I found Captain Rex!

Captain Rex from Star Wars: The Clone Wars

On March 11th, the world sadly watched as Lucasfilm announced the “winding down” of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. In addition to the press release and supervising director Dave Filoni’s address to the fans, we also got a small preview, mainly featuring Clone Trooper Tup. One of the first questions I asked after watching the scene was, “Where’s Rex?”

I reviewed the preview back and forth, and with a little help from the comments section over at, I managed to find him!

If you can’t tell by now, he’s near and dear to my heart.

Nobody else carries twin DC-17 hand blasters!

Here’s a close-up. and you can see the left side of the Jaig eyes and his pauldron.

I hope we get to see where Rex’s story goes from here. Towards the beginning of season five, Filoni answered a few fan questions and one of them pertained to Rex’s fate. Dave being the awesome person he is, gave us a very vague answer, so here’s hoping that Rex has an fulfilling conclusion (whether good or bad) in the near future.
