Here are some of the things I’ve micro-blogged over
@clubjade in the past few days.
Simplicity itself. The most surprising thing about this figure is that they haven’t actually tried to market it yet.
Internet famous. I get the feeling I would appreciate this #SXStarWars craze more if my time moderating message boards hadn’t given me a complete disdain for line-by-line thread games.
Hey, it’s better than Anakin. Baby name fail! Or win?
Bad bad bad, wrong wrong wrong. Topless Robot has a regular feature called Fan Fiction Friday, where he rightfully skewers awful (usually ‘erotic’) fanfic. This week’s selection? A Jacen/Leia fic called ‘Sexual Situations.’ Yes, it’s awful. Yes, it’s explicit. But there’s snark! Still, if you click through that link, don’t you dare say I didn’t warn you.
Cleanse your brain. Star Wars lunchbag art!
Han and Leia by Steph Swanger takes the Gone With the Wind pose back to the source. (I figure since in past years I’ve tormented you with twincest, photoshoppery, and , it wouldn’t hurt to go traditional. Just this once.) Law & Order
Looking for more holiday stuff? StarWars.com rounds up
Like any good Jawa, I go into
Etsy looking for posting material and I come out with far too much. So this time, instead of throwing a huge list at you folks, I’m splitting it up. First up, art.
Next set will be up Monday. Happy browsing!

Mattias Adolfsson set Star Wars back to the baroque period, he’s taking Lord of the Rings ahead with Bots of the Ring. Above, the NazguloBot Unit. ( via)
Artist Matt Brown hand-painted these Russian nesting dolls as Star Wars characters for his brother’s Christmas gift. ( via)
Andy Helms has embarked on an illustration product to draw a
Dude A Day, last year, and several Star Wars characters showed up in November. ( via)
Great White Snark spotted even more Star Wars My Little Pony customs – Yoda and Darth Maul by DeviantArt’s Anime Amy. Most of her other ponies are indeed anime-themed, but she does have Godzilla, Davy Jones and (weirdest of all) an Optimus Prime ponies.
Designer Adriean Koleric is repainting and modifying vintage AT-ATs for his upcoming show
HERD : rat-ATAT-touille. In his own words:
The idea behind the HERD series is to put focus on items of Western Pop culture that has and still influences me in the Design field as well as the new Artistic direction for ITEM. I wanted to show that these type of items, though mass produced and marketed, were infact what I considered art growing up as opposed to disposal product.
There’s plenty of other
Star Wars-themed work at his blog, ITEM. Poke around! ( via)
Dvice spotted Won Park’s amazing Star Wars (and Trek) dollar bill origami on DeviantArt. Up next? Serenity.
Björn Hurri has a number of great steampunk Star Wars drawings he’s sharing over at Gorilla Artfare. I was pretty impressed with his Yoda (clickthrough for the whole thing) and Leia, but there’s plenty more and they’re all fantastic: C-3P0, a jawa, a speeder bike, Jabba the Hutt, Fett, a stormtrooper, Chewbacca, Yoda, Han and Luke.
