Santa Maul does not know about you, but an action sequence seems like an appropriate Sithmas sentiment to him.
Santa Maul would be well amiss if he did not pay tribute to the Joker this holiday season. He has it on good authority that Batman does indeed have a tendency to smell worse than a 501st changing room after a warm-weather march.
Santa Maul is also sure that he should be linking to Rebelscum’s holiday gift guide. He assumes most of you will be quite aware of these items already, but would rather not be pestered by that gangly social media elf of theirs.
Cyriaque Lamar’s True Life (Day) Story: I Held Chewbacca’s Christmas Party is an inspiration to us all… And a sterling example of how Star Wars fans love to turn pure crap into gold, even as they’re dragged screaming from their denial. Happy Life Day, and I hope everyone has managed to avoid the killer robot.
Here in the U.S., Spike is celebrating the holidays with a Star Wars marathon as well: Prequels today, original trilogy tomorrow.
Something seasonal. (via)
StarWars.com highlights Lucasfilm’s 2009 holiday card, which has a gingerbread Clone Wars theme:
Designed by artists Harrison Parker and Kelly Smith, the card appears to be a gingerbread cookie tin which opens to reveal several Clone Wars characters in gingerbread form, complete with cookie-dough “ghosting” on the reverse of the interior panel.
You can check out their previous seasonal offerings here.
For the Americans, have a safe and happy Fourth, and remember, if you must blow stuff up, at least be safe about it: We don’t want to give any stray Jedi a headache. For our international friends, a stormtrooper with a bubble wand, which is legal, festive, and appropriate for all outdoor occasions. (Photo by rmkooi at Flickr.)
In the spirit of the season, Scalzi has rated Sci Fi movies by their explosions. Both Star Wars and Return of the Jedi make the cut.
TheForce.Net has word of some exclusive and limited edition Hallmark ornaments. (Scroll past the part where they meant to link to our original 2009 Hallmark post.) The first two are a Shock Trooper and Shadow Trooper two pack available only at Comic-Con. Greedo is the limited edition: You’ll have to head into your local store for the Keepsake Ornament Premiere Weekend on July 11th and 12th to nab him. Who shots first is entirely up to you.
I fail to see how regular string lights would conflict with Star Wars holiday or party decor, but for those of you who want to get as much branded merchandise as possible into one room, Artoo and Yoda light strings are here. Or will be, anyway.
