Being a bit younger than ol' Stinky up there
I can see his point still. If the art house for MOTU (2001-2004) could have been utilized, the Clone Wars series would have been much more visually appealing.
This does not go to say the Gennedy Tartakovsky's Style is bad. Much the opposite. Samurai Jack had a great feel to it, and when I first watched it, it really did have a bit of a "Star Wars" feel to it. Especially when Jack first woke up in the future. It looked quite a bit like Coruscant!
Now that the new show will be coming out within the next year, I think it will be improved on. However, I have some issues with the charater design from the trailer and Star Wars Insider #95 (Somehow issue 94 never made it to my house, but that's another ball of worms).
Obi-Wan doesn't look right for some reason. Anakin actually looks better in my opinion, and the Clone Troopers actually look AWESOME!. But, the character models all have heads that are WAY too large, and just seem too dis-proportionate.
Please don't think that I am ripping the new series apart before I have seen it. That is not my intention, but merely my initial point of view on what I have seen. It may turn out that this series has other points that will make it shine above all others. We shall have to wait and see.
