Guillermo del Toro would pitch Lucasfilm a Jabba the Hutt film in the style of The Godfather. I would have expected something a little more out-of-the-stock-fanboy-box from del Toro, but I’m sure he could knock it out of the park if it ever happens.
→ Also from SDCC:
Gary Whitta on the Star Wars symphony performance; Where the behind-the-scenes reel music came from; How Mark Hamill walked the con floor; How is it that in buzz? Star Wars only got a #3
→ BB-8 is on the cover of
the latest issue of . Make
Daniel Craig says he doesn’t have a role in The Force Awakens, and also apparently takes the piss out of Simon Pegg, because why not?
→ In the wake of SDCC, Making Star Wars dropped a few new rumor/spoilers, as they are wont to do. First up, what happens
directly after and more on Jakku; Some stuff on Return of the Jedi where Han is as The Force Awakens begins. And who is playing that new X-wing pilot we heard about last week?

First look at SDCC-exclusive Jabba figure. The Black Series Hutt comes with his hookah and Salacious Crumb.
StarWars.com has a look at the
adidas Originals Star Wars Collection for Fall/Winter 2010, including this adorable set of droid shoes!
Rebuttal. Big-time prequel fan Bryan Young has begun his response to the 90-minute Phantom Menace review that was going around a while back.
Presented without comment. Karen Miller, whose Star Wars books have been enthusiastically received by certain areas of fandom, wants folks to know that she’s not writing homoerotic subtext into her Clone Wars books. Okay then. (It seems the rant was inspired by this thread. Sigh.)
If we ever see an Essential Guide again… Suggestions for a book on GFFA politics. Dan Wallace is game!
Cakes! Clone Wars’ fame continues to spread with an impressive Republic Gunship and an adorable Jabba with Rotta. ( via/ via)
Crass fansumerism. Chewbika or soap? A bank?

Rebelscum contest winners. The fansite announced the winners of their annual Halloween costume contest yesterday – this ( Robot Chicken-inspired?) Ponda Baba by Michael took first place in the adult contest.
Sing it. Are you sick of seeing that old pic of Carrie Fisher and her ROTJ stunt double being treated as some sort of rare, leaked revelation? Yeah, me too.
According to Jabba? The King of Tatooine? io9’s Annalee Newitz mines Bonnie’s interview with the The Box director Richard Kelly for his idea of a Jabba the Hutt tv show. Scary thought: It’s not really out of the realm of possibility.
Blotter. A New Zealand fan had his stormtrooper armor stolen off his back porch before he had a chance to wear it. At least the perpetrators were caught on camera?
Craft corner: Stormtrooper outfits and playworthy lightsabers out of easy-to-find materials. Or… an AT-AT dog costume, because tiny little dogs just have too much innate dignity.
Yippee-ki-yay. Star Wars is SpaceWestern.com’s #1 most influential space western. Please spare us all the argument about how it’s totally not a space western; It’s an amalgam, silly. (Also, while I don’t think anyone can deny Firefly, isn’t it a bit early to rank it quite so high on a list that’s supposed to be about influence? Far as I can tell, the only thing that it’s inspired so far is a funny clip of and Fox renewing Castle Dollhouse.)
Art or something like it. io9 collects the greatest velvet paintings of science fiction. (As Wookieepedia is to Cracked, Google Image Search is to io9.) Giant Samurai Vader was a big hit on Twitter, and the official site gives us another peek at Visions featuring some of Club Jade’s favorite things (non-alcoholic division.) Dude, we get it: It’s a Star Wars fine art book, right? Enough teasing already.
Contain your shock. Darth Vader is Lawful Evil. No!
Baked-good corner. Two extremely well-made Star Wars cakes – Jabba and Darth Maul – from L.A.’s Rosebud Cakes. For the 30-year-old child party moll in all of us. As for something we can all achieve, take a cue from the sarlacc bundt cake.
Collecting. The ten most embarrassingly collectible . Why didn’t I sell my Special Edition Luke when it was actually worth something? WHY? Star Wars toys of the 90’s
At random. Power Droid gots to get his money.

Who dares take the
Jabba the Hutt costume out on a test run? Bonnie does. For science! Or something.
Star Wars Shop has a bunch of standard original trilogy costumes –
your cheapie Hans, Lukes, and stormtroopers and et cetera – but perhaps the most horrifying? The Jabba costume. What self-respecting adult would wear this in real life? Sadly, I’m pretty sure there are several of you out there. And I demand photos.
Though I have to love that they picked the lost Backstreet Boy to model
Luke, and one of the Hardy Boys for Han.
Check out ‘The Prototype’ and two other
Star Wars pieces from illustrator Benjamin Carre at ConceptArt.org.
