2012 STAR WARS WEEKENDS DATES ANNOUNCED
The dates for Disney’s 2012 Star Wars Weekends have been announced! If you have the time and the money to make it to one of these events, I hear it’s a great time to be had by fans of all kinds.
I HAVE THE POWER (OF THE FORCE)!!!!!!
If you’re a child of the 80’s like me, then there are a few things that I am sure you were exposed to. Star Wars, of course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joes, and Masters Of The Universe. One of the greatest things in all fandom is if someone can find a way to combine the things they love and artist Ryan Renders found a way to do that with Skevader! Mr. Renders combined the baddies from Star Wars and Masters Of The Universe into a stunning bust of Geeky Badness. Maybe in the future we’ll get a Yoda/Orko mash-up!
TALES FORM THE ‘DARK LENS’
French photographer Cédric Delsaux brings the galaxy far, far away a little closer in his ‘Dark Lens’ series of photographs. In this series we’re shown images of our worlds modernity with some of our favorite characters from Star Wars. The NY Times has a full interview with Mr. Delsaux about his vision for these photos, and the release of his book Cédric Delsaux: Dark Lens
Star Wars: Clone Wars ANIMATED SERIES CONCEPT ART
Concept art from the Genndy Tartakovsky Star Wars: Clone Wars series just popped up on io9.com. Even though we fans are saturated in the current CG Clone Wars, this series gave us our first tastes of how bad-a** Mace Windu is, the brotherly relationship between Anakin and Obi-Wan, and our first glimpse of General Grievous. With the ever shifting sands of Star Wars continuity it’s nice to be reminded of something so cool.
GEORGE TAKEI SUES FOR PEACE BETWEEN THE FANDOMS
It is well known that fans of Star Wars and Star Trek do not get along (i.e. Fanboys), and that was definitely illustrated in the video feud between Carrie Fischer and William Shatner. But, peacemaker that he is, George Takei has thrown his hat into the fray and pleads with fans not to get caught up in all the “He said, She said” drama. Mr. Takei also warns us of a darker threat that looms over all Sci-Fi franchises……… TWILIGHT!!!!!!!!
Assualt With A Deadly…Lightsaber?
Police in Portland, Or had a brush with the darkside this week when a 33 y.o. man assaulted many customers and police at a Hayden Island Toys’R’Us. Luckily no one was injured in the incident.
GETTING INSIDE STAR WARS INSIDER
It has been a good while since I picked up a Star Wars Insider, but I was surprised by the torrent of Star Wars goodies I found in the 2012 Special Edition that was just released. If you love Star Wars, grab an Insider and enjoy.
