Our own JawaJames, a San Diego native, is posting Comic-Con pics on his Flickr. Above, the Lucasfilm pavilion!
Of course, Mary, Bonnie, Pablo and crew are also in town, taking and posting a ton of floor photos from the con. You guys feast on them (Preview night and set up, so far,) watch the StarWars.com blog and keep an eye on the usual fansites, and I’ll be back later today to gather more links.
I actually kind of like these. Not enough to justify dropping $190 on them, but enough to hold off a ‘rest of the garbage’ joke. (via)
The Official Blog has pictures of new Clone Wars and Indiana Jones LEGO vehicles and sets, fresh from U.S. Toy Fair. Above, the V-19 Torrent. (You can see the Star Wars stuff a tad larger, plus descriptions, over at Gizmodo.) Warning to spoilerphobes: The Indy IV sets look like they contain some location spoilers.
Wizard has official photos of Hasbro’s Clone Wars line.
Yakface has an impressive gallery of pictures from the Hasbro booth, including some familiar faces from the Legacy comics and other EU faves.
Oh, and Deet? Gentle Giant is coming out with a Shirtless Darth Maul. I thought you should know.
Looks like that Hyperspace membership just got a bit more valuable… Gentle Giant is now offering a permanent discount to all members of the Fan Club. As long as they order via StarWarsShop, that is. Ahh, the circle of commerce!
Jake Lloyd is the latest confirmed guest for Celebration. I was in the area when he was scheduled to appear in the Fan Lounge at CIII – that place was packed.
Also, Star Wars Shop will be offering an exclusive Gentle Giant animation-style Boba Fett maquette at CIV and CE.
According to an interview RebelScum did with Amanda Burns of Gentle Giant, the Mara Jade mini-bust is a convention exclusive for this year’s GenCon, aka the traditional site of CJ’s annual gathering. How did they know we’re celebrating our tenth anniversary this year?
