Star Wars Is Everywhere: Episode LXIV

Posted By Mike on November 30, 2011

Old-school Empire interviews, Trooper Trek 2011, Star Wars art mash-ups, custom figures and playsets, Topps Star Wars Power Plates, PT actors and award shows, various lists, and more encompass the latest edition of Star Wars is Everywhere. As always, we're all over the place so let's just dive right in...



FuriousFanboys.com presents five reasons why they are thankful for Star Wars.




Back during the filming of The Empire Strikes Back Nick Maley helped in the creation of Yoda by building his second animatronic head and also made skin and molds. Nowadays, Maley resides on the Carribean island of St. Maarten where vacationers can stop in to check out his Planet Paradise art gallery. Read all about it at SILive.com.
(Thanks Som!)




From our buddy Justin:

"Dianna and I were able to assemble a complete set of all the Topps SW Power Plates. There are a total of 30 plates in the set, with 6 of those plates considered "chase" plates. We purchased about 50 packs in order to get one of each.

The 6 chase plates are as follows:

SLVGRL
FEARED
HATRED
FRMBOY
LUMINOUS
LEGEND

Each pack retails for $1.99 and can be found at your local Target."

GadgetReview.com lists their choices for the top 16 Star Wars Christmas ornaments.




AdelaideNow.com.au reports on the progress of Jacob French's continued Trooper Trek across Austrailia in order to raise funds and awareness for the Starlight Children's Foundation.




If you have younglings who are into the Hasbro Galactic Heroes figures, then you'll love the custom playsets on display at MikesGalacticHeroes.com.

The Associated Press (via MSNBC.com) reports that there was a tie for Best Feature at the annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. This ties into Star Wars as one Prequel cast member was on the jury while another starred in one of the winning films. From the AP article:

"Presenter Tilda Swinton introduced the nominees, but before opening the envelope, deferred to a prerecorded message on the venue's large video screens. The unprecedented ruling was then announced by jury member Natalie Portman who explained her peers were faced with the extraordinary dilemma of being "stuck" when it came to selecting a winner, so they "made a bold and independent decision" and "chose to honor both."

Swinton then read off the winner's names live, and presented the award.

"The Tree of Life" starred Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, and also won the Palme d'Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. "Beginners" was released last year and stars Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer."

SW.com points us to a couple of nice Star Wars art mash-ups. io9.com displays two creations from Benjamin Rivers that feature Tin Tin on a Taun Taun and a droid mash-up of Japan's Bucket Robot and Golden Man. Dean T. Frazier, at his official site, showcases what happens when you combine Star Wars with Batman: The Animated Series.




LynnNews.co.uk reports on Dave Prowse's appearance at Waterstone’s book store last Saturday.




Star Wars meets real world science once again according to UniverseToday.com:

"It may have looked like a futuristic scene from Star Wars, but ESA’s latest technique for aiding space exploration might shed some “green light” on greenhouse gases. A recent experiment involving the Spanish Canary Islands was conducted by shooting laser beams from a peak on La Palma to Tenerife. The two-week endeavor not only increased the viability of using laser pulses to track satellites, but increased our understanding of Earth’s atmosphere."

Star Wars: The Old Republic falls on EW.com's list of the "15 Must-Have Videogames" for the 2011 holiday season.




NerdApproved.com showcases the custom Darth Malgus and Starkiller action figures created by Dayton Allen.




The Official SW.com Blog reports that young actor Atticus Shaffer from ABC's The Middle got a chance to meet Darth Goofy at Disney's Hollywood Studios.




And we finish with another old school gem found by the good folks at the Official SW.com Blog in the form of 1980 interviews with the cast of The Empire Strikes Back conducted by reporter Bobbie Wygant.
