Stormtroopers and stockbrokers will be mingling this morning at the New York Stock Exchange as Lucas Licensing’s Howard Roffman and friends will be on hand
to ring the opening bell. I’m going to guess that our favorite Ewok wasn’t invited.
UPDATE: Here’s the video:
StarWars.com for some sneak peeks at the upcoming from Adidas. Looks like there will be some clothing as well! Star Wars shoes
Rebelscum contest winners. The fansite announced the winners of their annual Halloween costume contest yesterday – this ( Robot Chicken-inspired?) Ponda Baba by Michael took first place in the adult contest.

Friday seems as good a day as any to check in with Stéfan Le Dû’s
Stormtroopers 365 project. Also, for chocolate.
The original case of Lucasfilm suing designer Andrew Ainsworth over his reproductions of the stormtrooper outfits ended with

An interview with
Ashley Eckstein, and while we’re on the topic of voice actors, James Arnold Taylor in the new Insider or over at Newsarama. Also playing? Seth Green!
io9 provides some bootleg-style pictures of
concept art, including the a rehash (prehash?) of the Grievous/Obi-Wan duel above. StarWars.com has better pictures of the least interesting offerings (We’ll get the quality scans eventually,) as well as pics of Cad Bane and the clone troopers.
I am epically over the whole
Talk Like A Pirate Day thing, but any excuse for a neat picture. ( Photo taken by Rona Proudfoot at the Lorain International Festival Parade in 2008.)
