Rebelscum will start accepting entries for their costume contest tomorrow through November 2nd.
Star Wars Shop has a bunch of standard original trilogy costumes – your cheapie Hans, Lukes, and stormtroopers and et cetera – but perhaps the most horrifying? The Jabba costume. What self-respecting adult would wear this in real life? Sadly, I’m pretty sure there are several of you out there. And I demand photos.
San Diego Comic-Con is over. But the con’s spirit – and the reports – are sure to live on. We’ll try our best to catchup. Just not right now. (Photo by the San Diego Shooter, aka Nathan Rupert.)
James sent in these photos from the Spectacular. Note the hatless Filoni. We’ve got a few hours to go on the G4 broadcast, but from what we heard last night I’m recommending copious use of the DVR. Below, the return of the hat, plus The Clone Wars voice actors.
And now, your morning news updates:
- Sounds like the Fan Movie Challenge Awards were anything but a disappointment: My favorite, Star Wars Retold, was the George Lucas Selects! Other winners include Saber, Family Dysfunction, Star Sports Theatrical Trailer, Star Wars in a Notebook and Star Wars Cinemagic. Check them out at Atom.
- The reports from The Clone Wars design and The Old Republic panels.
- And for those of you who like to check out girls in Slave Leia getup, StarWars.com provides.
Still no Fate of the Jedi panel writeups from anyone…
It also seems odd that The Clone Wars footage isn’t up yet, but I’m hopeful it’ll be there eventually. UPDATE: The teaser went up just after the G4 broadcast. Duh.
Get with the now, man! Oh, USA Today. Why are you trying to fan the flames of Prequel vs. Original Trilogy rivalry? Protip: It is no longer 2002. We OT fans can (mostly) roll with it.
Party like it’s 2010. Hey, TFN came back! On the Celebration V note, the rumor mill seems to be favoring Chicago and this pleases me. Midwest represent! No Florida!
Bookstuffs. Check out the cover for The Making of The Empire Strikes Back. And perhaps today someone will enlighten us on this Star Wars: Visions thing. There’s also a panel report on what has to be the most ridiculous visual dictionary so far. And yes, Pablo you are shameless.
New Robot Chicken: Bonus segment from the DVD. Down nerds, down.
Nerd-spotting. Great White Snark has a Day 1 costume gallery.
Facepalm. Fans say Avatar will be as game-changing as Star Wars. Please stop feeding James Cameron’s ego. Don’t you remember what happened after Titanic?
GalacticBinder has adjusted for inflation and lists the top ten most expensive Star Wars items ever sold at auction – mostly costumes and props, naturally.
