Crafting corner. There are two Mara Jade items in this roundup, and here’s the first one. Rebecca aka Sorakirei, whose first lightsaber scarf we featured earlier in the month, has another made another one. The Mara Jade lightsaber scarf was a commission – could it be from one of our readers? It’s a big internet… She’s also done a ROTJ Luke saber since we last looked…
Lists: Topless Robot has a very Marvel-heavy list of the eleven least necessary Star Wars comics. Yes, its another one of those lists that was probably compiled by hitting the random button on the Wookieepedia, but I’m considering doing a novel version. (Since I’ve actually, like, read a lot of them. Imagine that. The New Rebellion, are your ears stinging yet?)
Oh, Cracked. ‘Retarded’ is not a word we use. Still, one has to give them a bit of credit for looking the most horrific aspects of the EU (Sorry, Death Troopers) full on in the face. I suspect this list was compiled by someone who spent an hour or two on the Wook and not an actual reader, because how else could any reader forget the golden magnificence and ultimate WTFness of Waru?
Theories. Some day George will want to buy a tropical island and sit around drinking mai tais all day, and then I’ll consider Disney buying Lucasfilm an actual possibility. For one thing, I don’t think the FCC would be too thrilled about it…
Thursday is officially the first day of San Diego Comic-Con, but in these days of Twitter those of us stuck at home are even more aware that people are beginning to pour into the city and get in the con-going mood. (StarWars.com is already posting pics.)
In other news. The trailer for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland leaked this afternoon and was promptly removed from a variety of sites. That means if you look hard enough, you can probably find it now… But I’m much too lazy for that. Look for it all over the internet officially tomorrow afternoon.
Trendhunter Magazine has compiled a list of what they call 45 Creative Star Wars Innovations but is really just a list of cool random stuff they found on the internet. It’s a mix of official and fan-made things we’ve seen before and some we haven’t. Enjoy! (via)
