The fandom minute: Spacebook, sports, puns, photos, blogs, corrdors, and the wisdom of Han Solo

spacebookToday on Spacebook.. This t-shirt design by Hogboy has been making the rounds. I would dare take a guess that this genius is the inspiration.

Let the Halloween costume mocking officially begin!

Protip: None of these costumes will get you laid, boys.

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.

Though I have to love that they picked the lost Backstreet Boy to model Luke, and one of the Hardy Boys for Han.

The fandom minute: Han and Chewie, Han and Kirk, Fanboys, George exhibit, Vader and Azaria

The buddy system. Han Solo and Chewbacca are on Fandomania’s list of the Top 10 SF/F Friendships. What, were you expecting Anakin and Obi-Wan?

Don’t tell Bill! Guess who Chris Pine looked to for his Kirk? Somebody’s aiming for a noogie from the Shat.

Party like it’s 1999. StarWars.com has photos from the Fanboys DVD release party in L.A.

Go forth and look at stuff. Space Center Houston will debut The Cinema of George Lucas this weekend, featuring “movie artifacts” from Star Wars, Indiana Jones and more. (via)

Seriously, why? It’s not really so much the how as as the why is Darth Vader appears in Night at the Museum 2

And finally… It’s a singing robot Vader extruder thing. Okay! (via)

Hallmark’s Star Wars ornaments for 2009

It’s May, so of course the Dream Book is out, because nothing says spring like planning out your Christmas tree. This year’s Star Wars selections are include The Phantom Menace duel (above,) Han in Stormtrooper gear, Luke’s landspeeder, and a Clone Wars twofer of Anakin and Ahsoka.

Also of interest: Indiana Jones, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters and my personal grinchy favorite, the Wicked Witch of the West.

(Thanks, Rach!)

Hey man, nice shot: Han Solo on EW’s ‘cool’ list

Entertainment Weekly has placed Han Solo at #7 on their list of the 20 all-time coolest heroes in pop culture. And he’s not even the only Harrison Ford character on it; Indiana Jones makes #2, beat out only by James Bond. The ladies are no slouches, either: Ellen Ripley is #5 and Buffy is #8, with Foxy Brown, Nancy Drew, and Sydney Bristow also making appearances.

UPDATE: Jezebel is annoyed that there weren’t more women on the list. Can’t really blame them there!

The fandom minute: Ponies, Artoo, and Jar Jar make one hell of a party
