Rumor: More details on Episode VII’s possible villains

rumors-swirl-jedi-sithLatino Review is shedding more light on the villain rumors, drawing in all these reports we’ve had of Inquisitors, their link to the Sith, Darth Vader and even Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd. It’s, uh, something – and possibly very big spoilers. Or it could be something pieced together from previous rumors, few of which we can be 100% sure about anyway. Take it all as you will!

UPDATE: Because it’s feast time for rumors, apparently, Badass Digest is now pitching in, with details on the #1 villain, and one of the planets mentioned in their big scoop from a few weeks back. But wait! That’s not all: Indie Revolver has the ‘concept art’ of said villain.

Rumors: Two more ‘new’ stormtrooper helmets?

rumors-swirl-ladytroopersWell, I suppose it was only a matter of time; There are two more (very different) possible new stormtrooper designs on Indie Revolver.

UPDATE #1: Making Star Wars has more information on the helmets, including a link to The Clone Wars on the second one, plus another picture of the first.

The first of the two does have some resemblance to the Tom Hodges version, but really, who knows? (Note: Hodges has deleted his drawing from Instagram.) It seems to me that stormtrooper helmets, even physical ones, are probably one of the easiest things for savvy and creative fans to fake, so I’m not counting on much of anything here.

UPDATE #2: Latino Review‘s contribution: Chrome stormtroopers with the ability to cloak.

Carrie Fisher remembers Robin Williams. “He made us all feel like he wished he could. He brought joy and surprise, and he would take you places you wouldn’t even know you wanted to be,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “He gave you all the things he would’ve wanted to have. And that’s what made him so generous.”

Is the U.K. getting Rebels in August? A commercial there apparently says October, but this isn’t the first time I’ve heard about the show airing in August. (Recently! In the states!) Honestly, at this point it feels like the only thing we don’t know about Rebels is when it’ll actually air.

Why marketers fear the female geek. It’s an older article (as well as a gaming one,) but it checks out. For instance: “We create opportunity by being vocal. We voice our frustration with how things currently are and progressive marketers will see an unsatisfied customer base… We have to keep being visible.”
