Great Lana Beniko Cosplay

We haven’t posted about any cosplays recently (are people still doing this?) but we just stumbled upon a good one. Here’s an awesome Lana Beniko cosplay. She’s really good – it looks exactly like her and no details were left untouched. The level of detail on everything is amazing. She has the perfect natural features to play Lana, and she gets every little detail of her costuming and hair right as well. Lana Beniko was a Human female Sith Lord of the resurgent Sith Empire. During the Galactic War against the Galactic Republic, she served as a key advisor to Dark Council member Darth Arkous. In SWTOR, she’s voiced by Lydia Leonard. “With her serene and considerate manner, one might mistake Lana Beniko for a Jedi. She is, however, a Sith Lord of great wisdom and strength who has impressed many of her peers in a considerably short period of time with…

Solo Movie Advance Ticket Sales Higher than Black Panther

The Black Panther movie broke records right and left as the most popular superhero movie ever. Now Solo: A Star Wars Story is threatening to break some records of its own. It looks like the chances of this stand-alone adventure story being a success are good. This movie covers the story of Han Solo and we meet Chewie and see how he becomes a co-pilot and more. It’s an origins story, hopefully, done right. Tickets for Solo: A Star Wars Story went on sale Thursday night and the first 24 hours of presales have already doubled Marvel’s megahit Black Panther, according to Fandango. It does not beat Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, which remains the fastest-selling film of the year in these early metrics. This is likely good news for Disney, since the Solo movie has had a bit of a troubled production. They had to deal with replacement directors, extensive reshoots, and some poor public perception. It seems that’s all water…

Lenova is Updating Star Wars: Jedi Challenges

Lenovo and Disney are rolling out a new mode for their Star Wars: Jedi Challenges game and this means you’re going to face off against your buds in lightsaber duels. How awesome is that?! Lenovo is rolling out an update to its Stars Wars: Jedi Challenges title that introduces local multiplayer. Lightsaber Versus Mode is a new feature that lets players battle their friends in AR lightsaber duels. Both players will need a Lenovo Mirage AR Headset, Lightsaber controller and a tracking beacon, costing $199. That’s a hefty investment for most people, unless you have a couple hundred bucks to blow, or you already have the set for other games and AR stuff. Lenova announced the news in a press release earlier today: “In Lightsaber Versus Mode, players are guided by visual cues indicating when and where to block, dodge, and strike,” Lenovo wrote. “As players face off, the battle increases in difficulty until one…

May the 4th Be With You!

It’s that time of year again, folks – my favorite day of the year: May the 4th. This is a day for Star Wars geeks or all ages to get their Star Wars fun on. How will you celebrate? It’s a great day for a movie marathon. Some people like to cosplay or host St Wars themed parties where they can dress up as their favorite characters from the franchises. I did a great Geek Pride Day 5K in honor of May the 4th today: It’s also a really great day to get awesome deals of cool Star Wars merchandise. You can find deals everywhere, but my favorite place to shop is Amazon – especially if you have Prime because you don’t have to wait forever to get your goods. Another favorite “geeky” store of mine is BoxLunch.com. They have a deal for 30% off all Star Wars stuff right now,…

DICE is Working on Something New for Star Wars Battlefront II

No, it’s not new content (yet), but we did see an update that DICE is working on something new for Star Wars Battlefront II. The long-awaited update that focuses on both cosmetics and a new game mode is finally here. With it can a customization system and microtransaction. This is different from the original plan for microtransactions (that made players angry) because it will be used for cosmetics only – nothing that will help you gain an advantage in the actual game. This has been a long-standing request from the community and they’ve finally delivered, so say goodbye to pay-to-win scenarios. So, now what’s happening with Battlefront II? Since the update is out, are they all done with content at this time? Maybe not. There’s also been an ongoing request for squad system improvements. The current squad system is very basic and players have been asking for more. Basically, you just…
