→ There’s already a 3D-printable pattern of the soccer ball droid. It’s a 1:1 scale, but: Your move, Hasbro. (Has anyone checked on the R2 Builders? Are they okay?)
→ Tosche Station’s Nanci makes the case for unlearning what you’ve learned.
→ Hey, remember spoilers and concept art and all that jazz? Making Star Wars hasn’t: They have a description of an “exotic city” that may be related to one of the places we saw in the trailer.
→ On that note, did Star Wars Underworld reveal the code name for Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta’s spin-off film?
→ I know we’ve heard all this before, but here’s Mark Hamill talking about George Lucas talking about the sequel trilogy in 1983.
Dave Filoni talks about Mark Hamill’s role in The Clone Wars final season.
Although there are some rumblings that filming isn’t quite done for all, Saturday night was the wrap party for Episode VII. John Boyega posted a photo with Artoo and a video to his Instagram, and later shared another from the party. Naturally, the paparazzi were there. (Yes, Simon Pegg was there, so get ready for another round of ‘does he have a role?!?‘)
And you can get a closer look at the Artoo – presumably the same one used during the filmng – at Indie Revolver.

Things continue to be slow…
→ The rumor/spoiler parade just doesn’t end at Making Star Wars: Do Han and Chewie go on a mission? Does a hero dress like a stormtrooper? And did a set spy get a picture of one of the new kinds of stormtroopers?
→ #Beardwatch! Mark Hamill still has his. Plus a doggy! Also on Instagram, John Boyega works out with buzzwords.
Mark Hamill takes up the call for the ALS ice bucket challenge, and nominates the new cast members of Episode VII, who “need to start pulling their weight.” Two down…
UPDATE: And now, Harrison Ford.
I don’t know, man. #Beardwatch?
→ Rumors: It’s Friday and Da7e at Latino Review is speculating his heart out, with the addition of some possible spoilers regarding Mark Hamill’s beard and who actually has the Millennium Falcon.
