Not all that impressed with the Bettie list? Gabri Jade polled her friendslist to create a new one.
Back-to-School season is winding down, which means that on the retail calendar it’s time for Halloween! So of course StarWarsShop is selling costumes, including licensed sets of Vader and Stormtrooper armor that will set you back a thousand bucks. But most of them – including Jedi/Sith gear, kids stuff, and Plo Koon – sell for a more reasonable $40-75.
I do find it a tad amusing that Slave Leia and Geonosis Padme come from a line called ‘Secret Wishes.’ Presumably the baby oil is not included. For women who want to go a little more covered up, there’s also Asajj Ventress, plus Ahsoka for the younglings.

- Jedism: Charlotte Church gave the Jedi church people £5,000. Seriously, stop encouraging them already.
- Lists: Anakin and Padme make Yahoo’s list of ten most mismatched movie couples. On the plus side, Yahoo does put in a good word for Boga.
- People: Might as well face it… Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are addicted to love. No, seriously, it’s a little disturbing. I forsee a lot of bad Darth Padme manips in this spread’s future.
Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen in Episode II: Attack of the Clones have been voted as having the least convincing chemistry of on-screen couples by film fans.
No way! With dialog like, “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and irritating and it gets everywhere. Everything here is soft and smooth,” who could believe that? I bet ladies everywhere are waiting for guys to use that line on them.
