James talks to Adam Bray, author of Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide, at San Diego Comic-Con.
Yes, that is Leland Chee.
I had a chance to check out Millennium Falcon: A 3-D Owner’s Guide a few weeks back. I’m not sure how many revelations there are in it, but it’s pretty cool.
The ultimate fanboy conversation in a book, Head-to-Head intends to examine who would win various mash-ups by using various RPG and card game stats, as well as video games.
Unfortunately, he was unable to match up Threepio against another to see who could talk the other to death. No one can beat him there! (via)
It’s a good week for a Star Wars craving – Tuesday brings the third Fate of the Jedi novel, Troy Denning’s Abyss (read an excerpt) and the oft-delayed, highly anticipated Essential Atlas by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry. (Watch an interview.) Don’t forget it contains more than just maps.
Comic fans won’t go home empty-handed, either – Wednesday brings Knights of the Old Republic #44.
On the basis of it being mentioned in Heilemann’s widely-linked Maker of Films post, Michael Rubin is making his book Droidmaker available for free in PDF.
This is likely a limited-time thing, so nab them quickly… Or you can go buy the book, since as I recall it’s pretty hefty – too much so to read the whole thing on a screen. Plus, that’s just the right thing to do… Now I gotta wonder where my copy is. (Probably went into a JadeCon teacup auction, come to think of it…)
UPDATE: Rubin has posted a Droidmaker FAQ.
StarWars.com takes another trip into the Lucasfilm Archives to check out what fans would be getting (or least, asking for) way back in 1978.
And while collectors today may have a hard time getting their hands on those late-70’s gems, they can at least console themselves with Gus and Duncan’s Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles, which can be pre-ordered from Paizo now.
Artist Grant Gould announced on his blog yesterday evening that he’ll be working on Draw The Clone Wars Characters with Lucasfilm’s Bonnie Burton.
It seems that it’s still Falcon week over at the official site, as today brings secrets of the Millennium Falcon, a look at how artists Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas juggled multiple and sometimes conflicting sources to create the latest set of blueprints.
