Upcoming Her Universe for the littlest fans

Not sure if it’s a tee or a onesie, but I’m sure there will be uses found for it. (It’s hard to tell from a phone pic, but in the Facebook comments, Ashley says it’s a light purple.)

The Death Watch returns to The Clone Wars with ‘A Friend in Need’

The Mandalorian Death Watch returns in ‘A Friend in Need,’ tonight’s episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As mentioned all the way back around Comic-Con last year, Katee Sackhoff will be voicing one of the Mandos, Boca Raton Bo-Katan. Jon Favreau returns to his role voicing Pre Viszla. The episode will focus mostly on Ahsoka coming to the aid of her Separatist friend, Lux Bonteri, who has gotten himself in over his head with Count Dooku, as shown in the second clip, below.

Poll: What do you think of Ahsoka’s new look?

New character models for Ahsoka and Anakin debuted in Friday’s ‘Heroes on Both Sides.’ (We’ve been told that Obi-Wan also got one, but he hasn’t appeared yet beyond the promo.) But the guy’s outfits really aren’t what anyone has been talking about…. Now that you’ve seen her in motion, what are your thoughts on Ahsoka’s makeover? Answer on the sidebar or beneath the cut.

A better look at Ahsoka’s new outfit

We’ve already seen some of it, but Underwire has an exclusive look at the rest. I still say anything that’s not a tube top is an improvement, but I don’t doubt that some will disagree, particularly on the ‘less revealing’ part. Your thoughts?

UPDATE: Ahsoka’s not the only one getting a new look: Obi-Wan and Anakin are also debuting new, if far less dramatic, ensembles.

The fandom minute: Artoo chic

I have no idea if this is authorized (very probably not) but there’s no denying that the Artoo swimsuit is pretty neat. But since it’s a bit late in the season for swimming, perhaps galaxy leggings are more in order. (Only if you can accept that they are not pants, ladies.)

Women in Star Wars. MagnetGirl hijacks our pal Mandy’s blog to talk about Ahsoka and last week’s episode ‘Assassin.’

Craftacular. The Millennium Falcon apple pie, because edible crafts are the best crafts. And you know what this cries for? A lightsaber pie cutter.

Fanboy corner. Gizmodo’s Joel Johnson says it’s time to let the prequel butthurt die and forgive George Lucas. Yes, boys: You don’t have to love the prequels (Hell, I don’t) but just accept them as they are (until George SEs them) and move on. And on that note, Cracked has five reasons for Hollywood to stop making prequels.

It will not die. The rumor is still getting batted around, so Underwire brings us five reasons Lucas should film a new trilogy.

Is this Ahsoka’s new look?

This still from the new Star Wars Insider shows a new outfit for Ahsoka: Perhaps even a permanent one, if StarWars.com and their Twitter are to be believed. And from Amy’s reaction, I take it to be a tad bit controversial.

It doesn’t bother me. Quite frankly, at this point, anything resembling a real shirt is a step in the right direction. My only beef with the cutout is that it, like the tube top that preceded, seems a bit dated as a design element. Which actually makes it pretty in-character for both Ahsoka and the GFFA as a whole – Jedi mullets, anyone? Or even NJO Luke’s Gordon Gekko ‘do?

Of course, there’s always the option that she simply raided the most modest garment from Asajj’s closet, and it’ll be gone as quickly as the red jumpsuit from ‘Cargo of Doom.’

But is it really so shocking that the character might be an actual teen by now? Move along, move along.

Hallmark’s Star Wars ornaments for 2009

It’s May, so of course the Dream Book is out, because nothing says spring like planning out your Christmas tree. This year’s Star Wars selections are include The Phantom Menace duel (above,) Han in Stormtrooper gear, Luke’s landspeeder, and a Clone Wars twofer of Anakin and Ahsoka.

Also of interest: Indiana Jones, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters and my personal grinchy favorite, the Wicked Witch of the West.

(Thanks, Rach!)

Looking ahead at The Clone Wars with Dave Filoni and Ashley Eckstein

S1 still alert

Two recent interviews with director Dave Filoni and voice actress Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka) hint at the second season of The Clone Wars. Filoni mostly talks about S1, of course, but there is a bit near the end about S2. And Eckstein says that Ahsoka will become “more and more like Anakin every day.”

Bundle up for tonight’s Clone Wars
