Star Wars Bearbricks

STAR WARS-themed BE@RBRICKS. Tis either you hate them, or absolutely adore them. Tis one thing when they’ve been KUBRICK-tized [tagged] while retaining a semblence of their iconic character-designs, but another when said individual designs are conformed into a singular platform shape – so it either comes off like a parody, or cuteness-personified.

Oh those crazy Japanese folk. What won’t they cutify next.

Star Wars Weekends At Disney

An intergalactic party in constant development and mutation since 1997, the “Star Wars Weekends” have become a must-see event for the die-hard fans of the franchise. It’s a chance to walk in the footsteps of beloved characters, embrace geekdom in a loving environment, and purchase useless collectibles for exorbitant prices. It’s a celebration on a grand scale, transforming the Hollywood Studios into a massive circus of droids, aliens, and profoundly sweaty tourists.

This looks like wicked fun.

Sad Trooper

Had several people send me this today. I don’t know where it came from. But it sure pulled at my heart strings. Poor guy.

I’m just curious how he is drinking that booze…maybe that’s why he’s really sad.

George Lucas The New Hubbard?

May 25th marks the 31st anniversary of the movie megalith Star Wars. In three decades the franchise has spawned more than just massive revenues and legions of fans — it has also inspired a religion. Jediism, based on the teachings of the films, counts thousands of members worldwide.

Wow. There are more members of The Church Of Jediism in the UK than there are Scientologist in the UK.

May the force be with you.
