Star Wars as 17th-century Japanese Prints

Posted by on Jul 27, 2015 in Fan stuff, star wars | 0 comments

Maybe it’s because I am such a huge fan of art and Star Wars (of course) but I really love this project I came across from a Japanese crowdfunding site, Makuake. The project is for traditional woodblock prints of the original George Lucas Star Wars characters and the project far exceeded its goal. While they do not come cheap (a single print costs 54,000 yen/$434, with a set of three going for 162,000 yen/$1,303) they are worth every penny. The craftsmanship, art and patience that goes into each beautiful piece is amazing. Most Star Wars fans will know that George Lucas was influenced by the Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa and that Kurosawa’s 1958 period adventure The Hidden Fortress often cited as a direct inspiration for Lucas’ first Star Wars film so it makes sense that Star Wars could then be so easily and beautiful adapted to its Japanese roots. These are not your typical paper prints, as you will notice. The printing style is called ukiyo-e and it was...

Posted by on Jul 25, 2015 in other starwars games | 0 comments

You know how we love our Star Wars games around here. We know you love them too and that’s why we work to bring you the latest and greatest if it’s related to Star Wars gaming. That said, we were excited to hear about a new game that tied into the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Is anyone really surprised about this, either? Of course they are going to try to tie in everything and anything, with the popularity of the movies and all that. What was less exciting was the news that this would be a mobile game only. I like mobile games, don’t get me wrong, but I really wanted to see something bigger and better from this. Still, it’s being made by Kabam and this pretty much guarantees two things: It will be worth downloading It will be free to play Kabam has a way that they do things and it’s the reason their games are so popular. They recently released a new video so you can see a bit of the game and I do think it looks pretty cool. It’s set to...

The 3.3 Drinking Game Celebration!

Posted by on Jul 25, 2015 in patch 3.3, swtor fun | 0 comments

Hey, what fun would a new patch be if we didn’t turn it into a drinking game (adults only)? Here we have a lovely little way to enjoy 3.3 and celebrate with inebriated style! Every new patch, especially an update that brings new classes or other physical features to the game, is going to also bring the hordes of wanting to try the new class, the new zone, etc. Every MMORPGer knows this (and often dreads it on update day). So why not turn it into a little fun or have a few laughs from it? In all seriousness, if you drink, please drink responsibly.

We have brought you posts about the awesome stuff that Calvin’s Customs does before and now we have another awesome custom project to share with you. He talks about what it is he was commissioned to do and why he decided to do it below. There are also some awesome pictures plus more on his Facebook page. He’s also been doing a lot of Darth Revan’s recently (no surprise at the popularity there) and even some cool non-Star Wars stuff if you’re into collectibles. Really so much talent here! He has some great Conan the Barbarians, bad ass looking Batman, an original design “Apocalyptic Hard Rocker”, military cyborg creations and much more. Here are details from the Miraluka project: As a old fashion muscle n bullets, mud and blood guy, I rarely do female figures, but there are exceptions, like this one, a special commission for a SWTOR friend, instead of having a Sith Acolyte for himself, he commissioned me to make this piece as an Anniversary gift for...
