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. Luke in flight gear, a snowspeeder, and Vader chatting with holo Palpy are full size, while the mini set is Boba Fett and Han in Carbonite.

The official site brings us our first look at the cover for Troy Denning’s Vortex, the sixth Fate of the Jedi novel.
Wherever the deathly obvious needs exploring, MTV is there! Let’s quote:
“No, no, no. Han Solo was very good to me at a certain point in my career,” explained the legendary star, who will be seen in the drama “Extraordinary Measures” on January 22nd. “But I’m done. I’m done with him.”
Surprise! Except, y’know, not.
- Wide world of puns. The University of Michigan has a quarterback named Tate Forcier. You don’t even have to imagine: They’ve already been made.
- Action figures in action. Bonnie interviews Stéfan Le Dû about his Stormtroopers 365 project.
- Internet inevitability. Animals with lightsabers, the blog. (via)
- Freeform advice. What would Han Solo do?

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