Actually, those spiders are Krykna. They apparently showed up in an episode of Rebels before this.

Even in your link it says they're a different species. Which you could have seen for yourself when you'd watch Rebels.

I just imagined Anakin throwing hands with Ashoka while the clones just watch trying to figure out why the general is fighting a child and now I am cackling.

I mean, TCW was blatantly written for children at first. It takes until Season 3 to consistently improve and reach the tone people more used to the later seasons are familiar with.

I remember they handed out toy catalogs at the theatres when the 2008 movie came out.

She doesn't even say it in the show. Like, once I think. It dropped rather quickly.

I like Mandalorian S2 so far, except the spiders. The show is great, I just really, really don’t like spiders.
Just your average modernized Spartan-Viking-Samurai-Mongol with robotic birds and big guns

Male, Caucasian, American, son of a cop, bisexual. Brother Fowles kind of Christian. I dislike both parties, give me healthcare and gun rights, damnit.

As the top of the sig says. Singularity technology and Dominator military by The Pacific Standards. Major Commando insurrection bordering on civil war some minor civil unrest going on, no elite military force in rebellion.

Well then again, the Knobby White Spider is not canon and is considered a legend. Also it lives on Dagobah which seems to be the opposite climate of what we saw on the Mandalorian.

They just took inspiration from Ralph McQuarries work for the spiders, same as rebels did. Because its a good freaky looking design.

I myself admit it has not been terrible. I'm only here for the aforementioned reasons of "Please kill Ahsoka", but I haven't been bored so far. That fight with the Krayt Dragon was pretty slick.
