The lightweight “costume tunic top” will come in sizes S-XXL for girls, Ashley said today. Look for it at Disney World when the Weekends start up later this month.

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.)
Attention TK-Mart shoppers, there’s a special on Star Wars: The Clone Wars this Friday: the first part of the two-part season finale featuring the return of the warrior who’s half Sith Lord.. and half not, Darth Maul. Stock up now on the following voice actor goodies as you prepare for the end of season four:
- UGO chats with Sam Witwer, the voice of Darth Maul, on how charming Maul is, and what Maul’s return means for fans and Obi-Wan
- James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi, shares with Newsarama his experience with Darth Maul, as well as voicing Rako Hardeen, flirting with Asajj’s Nika Futterman, and being a voice actor
- Ashley Eckstein shares her experience donning the Ahsoka Tano costume and her experiences in cosplay as a guest blogger for CNN’s Geek Out!
- Two-for-One villain special! Daniel Logan talks about returning to voice Boba Fett, and Nika Fetterman discusses bringing Asajj Ventress to life both for last week’s episode, ‘Bounty’, with Eric Shirey.
And remember, when shopping at the Darth Mall, all prices have been slashed in half!
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.
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.

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