The official site has a multi-page profile of Don Bies, Lucasfilm’s go-to guy for keeping droids in check. Some interesting insight on the unique issues of working with Artoo and Threepio. Spoilers are fairly minor – just don’t look too closely at the pictures.
In other Ep3 news, some collector cards have gone up on eBay, with new images and some spoilery information. Check out the auctions here and here. See them at IESB. Watch for MAJOR SPOILERS.

Because we’ve all been living in the world of post con depression and leaking noses (or is that just me?) you might have missed the return of the Episode III Set Diaries, this time from reshoots in London. The webcam is up, too, with several choice Obi-Wan shots for Wantons.
Lucasfilm introduced the title of Episode III at Comic-Con today. I don’t think there’s a soul in the fandom who’ll be surprised by their choice.
For those of us spoiler-ho’s who can’t wait for the official novelization, a fan written patchwork of spoilers and speculation is currently underway over on TFN.
