Wear Star Wars, Share Star Wars on December 16th

Remember last year when the Star Wars community rallied around Katie in Chicago who was bullied for liking Star Wars? Everyone wore Star Wars and was encouraged to donate a Star Wars toy in her honor.

We’re going to do it again this year! Friday, December 16th is the day to wear Star Wars in some sort of capacity.

Fans are also encouraged to donate a Star Wars toy to a charity (labeled as “either boy OR girl”).  If you’d like to really keep it in the Star Wars family, the 501st is a big supporter of Toys for Tots.

Ready for Hallmark’s 2011 Star Wars ornaments?

It’s May, and as always, Hallmark’s 2011 Dreambook is out. The ornaments were on display at Celebration, but for those of us who weren’t there or somehow completely missed the Hallmark booth, this is the first look.

Come July 16, you can pick up Jedi Master Yoda, Slave I, LEGO Darth Vader and the ever-controversial Showdown at the Cantina, featuring audio from the DVD edition. A fifth ornament, Bossk, will be available during the Keepsake Ornament Premiere.

Other familiar franchises you can deck your trees with this year include Star Trek, Harry Potter, Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, several superheroes and… Twilight.

All these ornaments will be available only in Hallmark stores.

Merry Sithmas from Santa Maul

Since Dunc won’t let him run his favorite Sithmas song, Santa Maul is instead forced to resort to non-offensive animal-laden pablum. Darth Sinterklaas will not be pleased!

For those wishing to horrify and confuse their enemies, Santa Maul presents this:

Regardless, Santa Maul wishes all a Happy Sithmas. May your slaying be easy and your spoils be plentiful.
