Holiday Special week fallout: Han Solo’s little-known furry roots glommed on by internets, many bad jokes (and debate?!?) ensue.
Better a Wookiee than a
Selonian, I guess. (We’ll leave them to Corran.)
Looks like Anakin and Padme fans will be happy with tomorrow’s episode, ‘Destroy
Malevolence:’ Catherine Taber, who voices Padme, has a few comments on the character and the secret relationship.
Meanwhile, over at TFN, the
ForceCast has a roundtable on the first three episodes.
The official site has posted a
brief shakedown for episode 4, ‘Destroy Malevolence,’ a new webcomic, ‘Ambush,’ and the teaser video.
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.

Bettie Magazine counts down nine badass Star Wars women, including several from the Expanded Universe. It’s not particularly hard to guess who rightfully takes the top spot. ( via)

Sleepy Padme by
Ruby Chan, because we’ve been a bit lacking in the cute department lately. She also has a second Padme in her gallery, Yellow Queen.
