STAR WARS : FORGOTTEN FORCE A Fan Film

You know how I feel about fan films. I’ve made that abundantly clear with each one I post here on the site. But now, we have a new one and this one’s great. We also talked briefly with Tim Johnson, Misunderstood Art Company, writer and director, about the film. You can learn more or follow updates at their Facebook page. Johnson says he made the film to honor his dad, Tony,  who passed away from cancer on June 19, 2011. It was released on June 19, 2016 on Father’s Day. It’s a wonderful tribute to a Star Wars fan and father and an all-around great film. We hope to see more shorts/films like this from the same crew in the future. Keep up the good work! So if you’re ready to check it out for yourself, here it is. Be sure to leave them a comment on the video or…

Custom SWTOR Topps Card

If you’re not familiar with Topps cards, the company, founded in 1938, is famous for creating collectible trading cards, candy, chewing gum and other collectibles. Growing up in the 90s, baseball cards were the big thing (at least in my circles) but the company also makes other sports cards and even non-sports trading cards. They worked with the Disney Channel, for example, to create trading cards for Hannah Montana and High School Musical. They also made Pokemon trading cards, not to be confused with the Pokemon Trading Card Game from Wizards of the Coast. So what if they were to create Star Wars themed cards? What if they made SWTOR cards? What an awesome idea! Someone already had this idea but I cannot claim it as my own. A Reddit user named loststormtrooper came up with the idea and then made his own SWTOR Topps card. It’s not perfect and his logo actually says “The Force…

EXILE – A STAR WARS FAN FILM (2016)

You know we love Star Wars fan films. It’s probably obvious from the fact that we post about them nearly every time we find them. So here’s another and it’s definitely worth the watch. This is Exile Episode 1, a Star Wars Fan Film 2016. The production quality is great on this one and the story interesting. Some may think certain themes steer a little from the traditional feel of Star Wars but as a fan film, I think they get a little leeway for such things. If you love Star Wars and you love fan films, this is just one more to add to your watch list. “Jedi around the galaxy are being viciously hunted and killed by the evil Galactic Empire. Aware of the imminent danger, Jedi Master Boemana Tora and her Padawan Makal Lori, flee to the outer rim systems close to the planet of Lothal.” So…

Star Wars Fan Film Unity of the Force

Here’s a really cool fan made film we think you will enjoy. In this story, the young hero, Lak, is tasked with finding an artifact, a special lightsaber that is said to be the most powerful in existence. He is less than enthused in the beginning, which makes him different from many young Jedis. I would expect him to be chomping at the bit to take on a mission like this but instead, his attitude was one of “Can’t someone else do it?” While this annoyed me, I also thought it was kind of refreshing to see a different angle taken. So anyway, he goes on to complete this mission to find The Artifact and there are many obstacles in his way, which is no surprise. I think you’ll find it a fun little short and the ending was a bit of a surprise to me. The ending may surprise…

Star Wars R2D2 Computer Case Mod

I am a huge fan of DIY projects. I even have a couple of websites devoted to this sort of thing. As readers here will know, I am also a fan of Star Wars. So when a project like this comes along, it’s going to capture my attention. This is such an awesome project for a custom case for his little boy. I love R2D2 (most people do, right?) and I’ve also noticed that kids really take to the little guy, same as kids of today fall in love with BB-8. There’s something about a little beeping droid that kids can identify with, especially when they often become the hero in a situation. I know I would have LOVED a computer case like this when I was 7. So this Star Wars R2D2 modded computer case was built by a dad with and for his 7 year old son. He…

“Kara” A Star Wars Fan Film

Star Wars fan films… oh, you know how much we love them! Here is a fun one put out by A Whitelist Production just a couple of weeks ago. It’s called “Kara” and it’s a little over 7 minutes long so it’s not going to eat up your entire afternoon to give it a watch. I will say this though: it left me wanting to see more from these guys. For an unofficial Star Wars film, it’s pretty darn good. It’s not Hollywood perfect quality but it’s really darn good and has a good feel to the story. Because they kept it so short and sweet, I think it even adds more to the appeal. Some of these fan films are too drawn out and it makes it much more difficult to capture and hold the attention of the audience for that length of time. It also draws us in,…

The Weight of Forgiveness – Star Wars Fan Film

We have something fun and interesting to bring you today. This just released SWTOR fan film has our attention. It’s called “The Weight of Forgiveness” and it’s all about the birth of a Jedi. It’s in Italian and it’s about 15 minutes or so in length so it’s a short watch. There are different possible interpretations of the short, which is part of its appeal. The synopsis says it is a Star Wars fan film “open to interpretation” and there have already been several ideas as to what it all means. If you know and love Star Wars (like all of us here do), you may appreciate it on those grounds alone but we ask you to watch it with an open mind and don’t limit yourself just to the Star Wars universe, then see what you think of it. Some say it is the story of redemption of a pastor…

STAR WARS LEGENDS: Legacy of the Force – Fan Film

We love Star Wars fan films, as you probably know if you’ve been reading our posts for awhile now, and here is one based on a book that we really wanted to bring to your attention. It’s Star Wars Legends: Legacy of the Force and you can see the film in its entirely on YouTube (we’ve embedded it below). It’s meant to be a homage to the Expanded Universe and the canon is spot-on. The acting was good, especially for a fan film and I found it overall entertaining. If you haven’t seen it yet, just scroll down and give it a watch. Then head over and tell the crew what you think of their hard work. You can follow everything they’re up to and learn more from their Facebook page here. Some of their members are also working on a new project right now. Their page contains interviews and…

Super Cool Stuff from Calvin’s Custom

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…
