Grand Admiral Thrawn’s latest achievement? He’s a pumpkin.
Not quite your style? StarWars.com has more pumpkin stencils.
But pumpkins are only part of the Halloween fun… I’m sure you know this already if you plan to enter, but it’s Rebelscum costume contest time! They’re always a hoot – just make sure to read the rules! (Please, someone dress up as Luke’s hand.)
Check out our Halloween tag for the hits of previous years.
StarWars.com discovered this Chewbacca pumpkin – it’s furry! Head on over to see the completed version.

My first inkling of this was a tweet from Lucasfilm’s Leland Chee (@HolocronKeeper,) who also confirmed that a (licensed) lightsaber Wii remote will soon be available. Okay, so the Wii thing is old news, but my memory isn’t what it used to be… At least not for game peripherals.
StarWars.com has instructions from Lawrence Noble on how to make a spooky Yoda pumpkin.
/film has a collection of Cinematic Pumpkin Carvings, leading off with plenty of Star Wars offerings.
I didn’t almost forget Halloween – I am just in a deep blogging funk. I meant to do this Friday. Sorry, folks. :(
Almost Halloween, time for the annual pumpkin-carving post… Alas, our old favorite, Zombie Pumpkins has gone for paid membership this year, although unlimited access does go for as little as $2. There are a tone of great stencils to choose from, including Star Wars, Buffy, and Pirates of the Carribean.
But the geek community moves ever on, and this year’s hot custom pumpkins include the Daleks, Cylons, a pirate, and even an actual PC. MAKE and CRAFT have even set up a contest and a Flickr pool for geek-ready pumpkins.
