His biggest fan. Of course there was a Plo Koon cake, and of course it was eventually served to none other than Dave Filoni. (And Jeremy Bulloch. And Ashley Eckstein.)
Brains. StarWars.com celebrates the release of Death Troopers with Zombie Week. I wish I had the words to tell you how much I’m feeling Zombie Week, but I’m exhausted.
Obession corner. TFN’s Mike Barrick has collected Star Wars references on NBC’s 30 Rock, while GalacticBinder counts down the top 12 Star Wars guitar crossovers.
Charity. The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is selling Obi-Wan medallions to help raise money for seriously injured service members.
Havac on TheForce.Net boards spotted this zombierific poster. Since a tie-in with the MMO is planned, this isn’t totally out of the blue. Check out the poster beneath the cut.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is coming in April (and not the first, either) from Chronicle Books. I know you guys will want to read this one. Just check out the blurb:
As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.
How could any zombie fan resist? (Or is Elizabeth Bennet, Zombie Slayer, a sign that the trend has finally played out?)
Rebelscum posted their 2008 Costume Contest Winners winners last night. Erin (Maris Brood) and Kristin (Zombie Leia,) above, took first and second place in the adult category. The wee Wicket is Oliver, and while he didn’t place, he is adorable!
The Zombie of Montclaire Moors is sure to impress your friends, but not before he scares the living hell out of them. And if you’re aiming for a science fiction theme, his pal Roswell is on sale. (via)
I’m not sure I want to think too hard about the fact that Evil Dead: The Musical even exists, but it’s hard to deny these hilarious Broadway poster spoofs!
Zombie Star Wars. Actually, amazingly really creepy. I could totally almost see that Vader showing up in canon. Or a really bad
fanfic Infinities comic.
Giant Magazine interviewed David Hewlett for the release of A Dog’s Breakfast, which come out this week on DVD in the US and Canada.
In the interview, David reveals that his next film is called Design of the Dead. A home renovation team not only revives a house, but the zombies inside it, as well.
That will give a new spin to the home improvement show!
Some fans are planning to zombie up for Dragon*Con, and they appear to be recruiting. Do you have what it takes?
