Expanded Universe art from Terese Nielsen

IMAGE: Luke miniature packaging by Terese NielsenTerese Nielsen talks about creating box art for the Legacy of the Force miniature line, and gives us a nice look at Rebellion-inspired Luke Skywalker in battle armor piece. (Looks like the art director got mixed-up with all this redundant naming – that’s not Legacy. This is Legacy.)

This is currently the only Star Wars post on her blog, but you can get a closer look at the finished artwork and some of Nielsen’s other Star Wars work at her DeviantArt.

A closer look at upcoming EU figures and toys

IMAGE: NJO Luke figureEU Cantina spotted these images of upcoming action figures, including the three (two spoilery!) variations of TFU’s ‘Secret Apprentice’ unboxed. But the real treat here is a look at the ‘Evolution of the Jedi’ pack, including what I believe is an NJO-era Luke Skywalker and KOTOR figures.

In other EU toy-type news, CJ reader Scoke discovered this giant list of box scans from WOTC’s new Legacy of the Force miniature line, which includes quite a variety of EU figures, from the Old Republic to folks from the Legacy comics.

The haps of GenCon

Now, we sometimes forget this in our pursuit of booze and parties, but GenCon is actually a gaming convention. Over at the TOS blogs, Sterling Hershey has the reports on the Star Wars and general RPG announcements.

For the EU fans, looks like WOTC will be making Legacy of the Force, Knights of the Old Republic, and The Force Unleashed minis.

While we were drinking…

Here’s some of what’s been going on in the outside world.

Revenge of the Sith won two DVD awards. Also on the official site, November 2006 Comics.

Speaking of comics, don’t bother looking for Legacy #3 in stores. It was supposed to come out today (the schedule even said so until this morning) but it’s… not. Word on the boards is that last week’s books didn’t ship either. (I don’t know: I only buy Legacy.) Dark Horse isn’t the only one: Something is rotten in the comics industry.

“May the force be with you” tops online quote poll. And I don’t think TFN linked the poll, which means it might actually have won fair and square. Cool.

Some new Star Wars miniatures debuted at GenCon. The set includes a “Mystral” Shadow Guard, but unless they came with booze and/or naked men, I don’t think any of us noticed. Also, it seems they’re restarting the RPG.

Colleen Doran witnesses The Fan From Hell. I think we’ve found one that beats the Woodtick, folks.

Those damn Harry Potter plagiarists made it all the way up the fannish blog chain to John Scalzi. Twice.

Other stuff I would have blogged:
- NASA has misplaced the original moon landing tapes. Our tax dollars at work!
- Daniel Radcliffe is down with Harry Potter dying.
- Crazy mofo has “temporary” Wolverine piercing. My hand hurts just looking at it.
- Hayden Christensen making some movie.
- Things writers have no control over. (Add to the list: Killing Chewbacca.)
- The Top 8 Shows For SF Myth Busters.
