Plinkett returns. ‘The Phantom Reviewer’ concludes his skewering of the prequels with Per usual, it’s not for everyone and still very much NSFW. But what can I say: I LOL’d. Revenge of the Sith.
So you’ve experienced a blizzard… Why not enjoy some impromptu Photoshopping?
Wait, what? Scotland has a Jedi police officer. She “admits to using Jedi mind tricks” but denies using “‘The Force’ to influence what suspects say or do.” Okay then.
The blogside. Cambridge University librarian Andy Priestner is not pleased with the state of the Jedi Order’s library.
Nice trolling. Suvudu has a ‘casting call’ for Luke Skywalker. No, seriously.
May is still showering, but in the land of Hallmark, spring means only one thing: The 2010 Dreambook is out. There are several Star Wars selections: One set of Yoda and Captain Rex (page 56) and several Empire Strikes Back-themed ornaments (pages 60-61) that you can check out below the cut.

Santa Maul has been advised that there are some among his readers who are not disposed to the bearded Obi-Wan, snarky scoundrels, or even the sheer magnetism of a dexterous bad boy. No, some even prefer heroes of the goody-goody persuasion. Santa Maul is puzzled, but he knows his duty, and thus recommends to deviants of the light Sideshow’s Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight Premium format figure. At least he is not dressed in beige.

StarWars.com for some sneak peeks at the upcoming from Adidas. Looks like there will be some clothing as well! Star Wars shoes
Laurence Butler Rayne brings
new meaning to the term ‘Skywalking.’ But wait! There is another.
In other news, StarWars.com treats us to the
. It also lacks females, if one ignores Christie Golden’s byline. We can, however, be fairly sure the book involves some. (And Fate of the Jedi: Allies cover Sue Rostoni has already revealed that the ‘mystery man’ here is Vestara’s father.)
Will it blend? Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig wore a Darth Vader meets . Sorry, Kiss of the Spider Woman dress to the Emmys Bonnie: I’m pretty sure she full deserves that D. But at least we get blog content out of it.
IMMA LET YOU FINISH. Congratulations, it’s a week-old meme in Star Wars form!
Talkies. If you’re in the mood for some old school audio drama, Star Wars en Direct’s Dany Pépin is starting some aural fan fiction, ‘In the Shadows,’ next month.
Lists of dubious (and not-so-dubious) honors. Luke is #1 on Spike’s list of the top ten white trash heroes of cinema, while Lando is one of io9’s ten most corrupt mayors in science fiction. Uh, thanks? I guess. On an entirely different note, A New Hope tops Paste’s ten most iconic opening scenes. ( via)
If Amazon is to be believed,
today is the ‘official’ release date of Ryder Windham’s . A New Hope: The Life of Luke Skywalker Wednesday brings , featuring the triumphant return of Beefy the Vong! Or something. Invasion #3
There really is something for everyone on Etsy. I’m prepping a few posts for next week, and I ran across a Luke and Mara Wedding cake topper. (What a post-ROTJ EU pairing has to do with The Clone Wars I have no idea.) The seller, Hildoom, also has a Yoda Birthday Cake topper for sale.
Cars. Jalopnik is on something of a streak, exploring the hot rod culture of and likening the Star Wars ABT Audi R8 V10 to something that “Anakin’s coke dealer” would drive.
Back to school. StarWars.com takes a look back at the 70’s with retro class cear from Helix.
Lists. Palpatine makes #1 on Sci-Fi Squad’s top ten sci-fi deaths.
Cakes. A neat by Da Bombe Desserts. Millenium Falcon
If only… io9 suggests swapping the writing staffs of and the The Clone Wars The Venture Brothers, which may be the only way to get me to cheerfully watch the former.
