star wars stories

Once in a while, George Lucas and co. will release some really epic Star Wars gear, like these clothes by Adidas or that 3,000-brick Lego Star Destroyer. As long as the gear is proportionate in size to the epic-ness of Star Wars, it's welcome. Take this new book, Star Wars: The Blueprints. It's 35 pounds, has 500 original blueprints from the movies, from star ships to droids to architectural landscapes, The Blueprints has it all, so long as you have at least $500 to buy a copy.
Let's be honest and admit that most licensed movie products are complete junk. Even more so, is Star Wars merch. If there's anybody who knows how to milk a brand to oblivion, it's George Lucas. Strangely enough, this hair dryer based off of Darth Vader's mask is calling us from a galaxy far far away.
Usually when we see a Lego something this big, it's from a brick-crazed enthusiast who either has a ton of creativity, or a ton of coffee. This time around, it's an official Lego Star Wars playset, part of the company's Ultimate Collector Series, and it's being billed as the longest Lego creation the company has ever released.
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.
