The fandom minute: A blogger, 25 women, a Hutt and a roleplayer walk into a cantina…

As tempting as it was to pull something from ROTS...It was inevitable… Hot Chicks With Stormtroopers, AKA a nicer take off of internet ‘sensation’ Hot Chicks with Douchbags, or as we like to call it in this fandom… No, sorry. Too easy. (Speaking of douchebags, io9′s weekend commentators are certainly doing their darnedest. Bravo, gentlemen.)

The fandom minute: Morning crank edition

It’s art! Or not. No. Just no. Clone Wars character design, I know McQuarrie, and you sir are no McQuarrie. On the other hand, Christian Waggoner’s stuff is kinda cool.

Let them eat slime. This Jabba cake is appropriately disgusting yet totally hand-made. Pretty impressive.

Don’t strain yourself.Is Star Wars science fiction or fantasy? It’s sci-fantasy. Duh.

Listicles. Princess Leia is one of Yahoo’s lethal ladies; The prequels bottom out io9′s list of science fiction prequels, beating out even You-Know-Who’s Dune books on their scale of crappiness. Ouch.

Road trip! If you missed it, The Vader Project is now in Pittsburgh.

The fandom minute: Ponies, Artoo, and Jar Jar make one hell of a party

Fan Art: Happy Valentine’s Day!

Han and Leia by Steph Swanger (solofan29 @ deviantart.com)

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 Law & Order, it wouldn’t hurt to go traditional. Just this once.)

The fandom minute: Should George Lucas retire?

George Lucas in Carbonite @ Celebration Japan (Bonnie Burton / StarWars.com)Scrap the Maker? The relaunched Sci-Fi Wire (now in blog form!) has come up with nine reasons for George Lucas to retire already. Cinematical then made a poll out of it, and ‘yes, please’ is winning. Your thoughts? I honestly don’t care all that much as long as he sticks to the prequel/intertrilogy era.

Your random Star Wars TV reference of the week

On Thursday’s 30 Rock, Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) dressed up as Princess Leia, put on a wacky accent, and claimed to be able to “read thoughts,” all to get out of jury duty.

You can see a brief clip at Gawker, and the full episode at Hulu.

I’m pretty sure it’s a hell of a lot easier than that – when I was called a few years back, they dismissed a guy in his early 20′s for basically wearing his nametag upside down. Or maybe it was the Young Jedi Knights book he was reading. Whatever – I ended up having to put in six days on that jury. Sigh.

The fandom minute: Tina Fey’s endorsement, bento boxes, Yoda’s a (badass) geek

She can see Russia from her house!
