Ashley Eckstein is getting some ink for Her Universe in the most unlikely of places: ESPN! I don’t doubt being married to an MLB player helps widen the field of interest, but let’s not forget we’re the only fandom with a noteworthy gender disparity. (Sports-loving ladies can see the Alyssa Milano line that Ashley mentions as an inspiration at Fandalia.)
Not the lawsuit you’re looking for… Lucasfilm has backed down from their legal threat against Wicked Lasers, which makes a (you have to admit) very lightsaber-looking laser. But elsewhere in the world, the march continues…
Horrors of the audition tapes. Sylvester Stallone auditioned for Han Solo? Sounds like he didn’t get far enough for tapes, but that’s probably a good thing.
Presented without commentary. Are Jedi Knights Libertarian or Socialist?
May is still showering, but in the land of Hallmark, spring means only one thing: The 2010 Dreambook is out. There are several Star Wars selections: One set of Yoda and Captain Rex (page 56) and several Empire Strikes Back-themed ornaments (pages 60-61) that you can check out below the cut.

Surprise! Except, y’know, not.
Today 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.
Han Solo Adventures is a freeware “interactive fan fiction” game currently under development by Stacy Davidson. The video above doubles as a trailer and contribution the the project. ( Star Wars Uncut via)
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.
Irony! A mashup with
Magnum P.I., complete with a side-by-side comparison beneath the cut. Continue reading “Cheap shots: ‘Han Solo P.I.’”
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?

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