Hmm, looks like that Jawa got a little lost. This isn't the backwater desert planet you're looking for, but let's face it, it probably should be.
For what's essentially a big brick with treads, the Jawa Sandcrawler from Star Wars is pretty damn cool. Lego whiz "Marshal Banana" has faithfully recreated the boxy vehicle using 10,000 pieces over nine months of hard labor, and it's even fully remote controllable to boot — inside and out.
Quake in fear, Star Wars fans: George Lucas has been hard at work penning a new live-action Star Wars TV series, and he apparently already has a whopping 50 hours done so far. I assume 45 hours of that involve Jar Jar Binks leading debates in the galactic senate.
Designs for soapbox derby cars have been known to turn some heads, but none have caught and held our attention longer than this X-Wing Fighter. "The Papier Boy's" X-Wing doesn't just look amazing, but it also has a rotatable R2-D2 that's controlled by a re-wired NES controller. The Force is definitely strong with this fighter.
How do you make industrial robots exciting? By giving them lightsabers and having them battle, it turns out.
Today is Star Wars day (May the Fourth...get it?!), so Lucas and co. have announced the full rundown of what to expect from the entire six-movie Blu-ray set they're releasing on September 16th.
Man, if I woke up everyday and went to work at Lucasfilm Animation's new offices, I think I'd be in heaven. The house that produced The Clone Wars animation series will soon have a new office building that clearly resembles a Sandcrawler.
There's more to Admiral Ackbar than simply an uncanny sense for detecting traps. Much, much more. This 1983 behind the scenes special from Return of the Jedi features some outtakes of Ackbar singing about how ugly he is, as well as him saying "penetrate it" over and over. It's priceless.
You know what America is in dire need of? An Imperial Walker. Why? Because why the hell not, dammit. AT-AT FOR AMERICA!
Hey, look, another excuse to give George Lucas some more money! Yes, the entire Star Wars saga is coming to Blu-ray on September 16th.
