The History Channel is rerunning “Private Collections” tonight at 8pm Eastern. The show features a look at Steve Sansweet’s collection of Star Wars collectibles.
Natalie Portman? Seriously?
When one thinks fashion and Star Wars, Luke Skywalker isn’t exactly the first person that comes to mend. But according to Tom Stubbs of The Sunday Times, ‘man gear’ is now in fashion, and Luke gets namechecked. Huh. (Via TFN.)
Posterwire on the propaganda-style teasers for V for Vendetta. They’re really fantastic posters, and I’m not looking forward to the inevitably bland photomontage that will no doubt follow for the release.
Knit zombies! Adorably grisly!
Whedon’s people deny it, but IGN is claiming that Universal has given the go-ahead for low-budget sequel to Serenity. The film would be broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel or possibly go straight to DVD.
And while we’re on the subject, Serenity hand puppet theatre.
Make us a Star Wars themed nativity scene! Then send us pictures. The best one – as chosen by a crack panel assembled from the Club Jade mailing list – wins.
You can use pretty much any medium – a drawing, action figures, your pals from the 501st… We’re not picky.
Send us at least 3 but no more than 6 “high-res” (at least 600 pixels wide) quality JPGs of your entry. At least one must be a full shot of the scene, the rest can be closeups or details. Email your entries to email@example.com by December 15th, 2005.
Originality counts, so be as creative as you can. Remember, CJers love the bizarre.
1. The scene must contain at least 5 recognizable Star Wars characters. It doesn’t have to be all Star Wars characters, but they should be the main focus.
2. Only one version of each character may be used – you can have an Anakin or a Vader, not one of each. (Multiple Stormtroopers/Clonetroopers/Jawas and such are fine, but only one of each will count towards the 5 figure total. Yes, different kinds of troopers are fine.)
3. Pictures must be in focus. Mostly. We need to be able to tell who’s who.
4. Keep it at least PG-13.
5. Mind tricks don’t work on us. Only funny.
The first place winner will get a choice of $50 gift certificate to either Star Wars Shop or Amazon. First, second and third place winners (and maybe more) will get their entries posted to the Club Jade blog for all to admire.
And the Drew Karypyshyn Darth Bane novel is… Path of Destruction, due October 2006.
Inner Bitch watches the entire saga (in release order) and is more than a little surprised.
Halagard takes a look at what the Expanded Universe might look like if it started after the release of the prequels.
Meanwhile, Jeff Dillon of The Disembodied Brain picks up The Joiner King and The Unseen Queen. He’s not impressed.
Shoiryu slashes out for a bit, but calms down for a nice discussion of the Master and Padawan attachment.
