This Week in SW

The preview for Star Wars Insider #84 is up, and it’s all about the clones… And coming up in the issue after that (#85) will be a Vader short story from Karen Traviss.

StarWarsShop.com has an exclusive Christmas Vader action figure that’s… um.. festive. Because nothing says ‘Happy Holidays’ like a blood-colored figure of everyone’s favorite Sith Lord

And LFL is finally moving into the Presidio this week, so updates on starwars.com will be slim.

My office should be so nice

Big thanks to Paul Ens for the lead on some articles covering the opening ceremonies of the new Letterman Digital Arts Center: future home of all things ILM, LucasArts and Lucas Licensing.

The AP has a nice description of the facilities.

And the SF Gate has some great photos.

While we’re sorry that this now adds a bit of a commute to some of our friends at Lucasfilm, having a cafeteria where you can get such great views has to help make up for it in a small way.

Six to go…

Got my tickets for the 12:01 am show next week – they’re playing it in three theaters at my local multiplex. Three! So now I feel like a bit of an idiot for heading straight to the theater after work. But now I’m wondering – should I try to convince my friends to relive our high school days and get there early enough to be at the front of the line? (We did that for the Special Editions… yes, I’m just a youngling, I know.)

First off, another new commercial sporting more of the lovely Palpatine footage that makes us Sith get all giggly and excited… Note to Lucasfilm: Less of Padme. More of Palpy. Sell the evil.

The highlight of today’s articles – Anthony Daniels on what kind of wine to drink while watching Revenge of the Sith.

The BBC looks at why Star Wars still matters. Because, you know, all this media coverage apparently has people wondering. Includes testimonials from fans. Meanwhile, Reuters wonders if its good for cinema.

Would you pay $500 to see ROTS early?

And now for something completely different… a bit on Lucasfilm’s new Presidio headquarters. Pretty!
