hot wheels xwing

A couple years ago Hot Wheels brought a Darth Vader car to SDCC, but this year…THIS YEAR…

Hoo boy.

Yes, the X-Wing car is enough to make a grown as man like myself giddy. It will be on hand along with a tiny version being sold as part of a limited edition set at the show. Check out the promo video and making-of video below. [click to continue…]

Not surprisingly, John Williams isn’t a “get off my lawn” kind of senior citizen.

Indeed, playing the Star Wars theme in front of John Williams’ house paid off big time for 13-year old trumpeter Bryce Hayashi and flugelhornist Michael Miller (“Mickle”) at the 1:24 mark in the video below. [click to continue…]

Untitled-1

Brazilian artist Bruno Alberto has recreated key scenes in movie and TV history as digital dioramas in a project called Low Poly Scenes.

So far, Alberto has put his low poly spin on scenes from Raiders of the Lost ArkBack to the FutureGame of ThronesStar Wars and Free Willy. As you’ll see, they are are charming and fun to watch.

Check out the rest of the series below. [click to continue…]

hamill

Mark Hamill has always been an awesome ambassador for Star Wars, but you know he had to be exhausted after three full days at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Still, he takes time with everyone who comes by for an autograph.

In this case, he got something in return. A custom-made Joker lightsaber made by Hampton’s Handcrafted LED Sabers. The saber was crowdsourced by fans who wanted to chip in and get Hamill something special.

He also gave the fans a taste of what they can expect from The Killing Joke movie during “An Hour with Mark Hamill” at Celebration.

It’s glorious. Check out the videos below. [click to continue…]

SW-Sarlacc-Boba-Coffee-table-1

It’s always a good day when we get to show off a new piece by Tom Spina Designs. This coffee table goes out to all the Boba Fett fans out there—especially the ones who believe the Baddest Bounty Hunter in the galaxy made it out of the Sarlacc Pit alive.

This glass-topped table features a cutaway of the Pit Of Karkoon where Fett struggles to get out of the Sarlacc’s mouth and save himself from 1000 years of slow, torturous digestion.

Or it could be him falling back in. I’ll let you decide. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Day one of Star Wars Celebration Europe gave us our best look at Rogue One yet, with a new poster and a special behind-the-scenes video.

The shooting style makes the movie more immersive, putting the actors right in the middle of the action with the audience right alongside.

Check out the (intense) video below along with the full poster. [click to continue…]

Hot Toys has announced a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale Rey in her Resistance outfit.

The figure is available for pre-order with arrival slated for somewhere between September and November, but here’s hoping it’s on display at Celebration and makes its way to SDCC.

The figure comes with her outfit from Ahch-To, her staff, Luke’s saber, a blaster pistol, and a hexagonal figure stand with the Resistance’s emblem.

It’s pretty, but I kinda wish they’d hurry up and do Poe. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

build a bear boba action set

Build-A-Bear has a new addition to their Star Wars line and he’s the cutest (and fluffiest) bounty hunter ever.

The Boba Fett Bear comes with that signature armor and cape, and you can get his blaster either separately or as part of a set.

I wonder how Wicket would look with Boba’s blaster. Hmmmmmm.

You can build your Boba Fett today, so if you’re in the UK, you could have him in time for Celebration. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

stormtrooper fence

Of course you can! Duh! This is Star Wars we’re talking about here. If you can dream it, it probably already exits. Now you can cross “Stormtrooper fence for my yard” off your wish list.

There isn’t much in terms of details at the moment, but we do know that a 2-pack will set you back $17.99. So it’s probably not a very good fence. Plastic and decorative most likely. The kind of thing that you would put up for a party.

Then again, your garden could use a little protection—but I wouldn’t trust a Stormtrooper with the job to be honest.
