Awesome SWTOR Lego Sets

I have been a Lego fan since I was a little girl. My kids are now also Lego fans and my boys, as well as my 3 year old daughter, love Star Wars Legos. Too bad we couldn’t have all been at the New York Toy Fair on Sunday because those who were there told us all about the awesome Star Wars and SWTOR themed Lego sets that were presented.  Kotaku has some great pictures of these sets in their gallery. Dual Shockers also wrote about the SWTOR legos on presentation: We all know that LEGO produces a very successful series dedicated to the Star Wars franchise. What we didn’t know yet is that they are releasing two kits dedicated to Star Wars: The Old Republic.  The kits, showcased at the Toy Fair in New York, will be themed after the Imperial Fury class interceptor (that you can pilot as…

Star Wars Fan Movie Spirit of Fandom Award Winner: The Tentacle Trap

I can’t resist sharing these Star Wars Fan Movie Awards winners, so I won’t. This latest addition to the winner’s gallery is that which walked away with the Spirit of Fandom Award, and was made by Caribbean-based filmmaker James Austen. The Tentacle Trap tells the tale of a small band of Clone pirates who are captured by a foe far worse than Darth Vader while on a treasure-hunting trip to a leafy planet. Anyway, here it is… Austen spoke to the Official Star Wars blog about the specific difficulties presented by working with stop-motion and Lego: Remembering not to be a clumsy oaf was the biggest challenge to overcome! Halfway through a scene I’d often knock the camera or the set and have to start all over again. I lost hours making that mistake. And surprised with the software that is now available, and the help, advice and resources online….

Lego Star Wars Coming to TV In September

Odd but exciting news has just come to my attention (after it was announced at the recent Licensing International Expo 2011). According to ComingSoon.net LEGO Star Wars is set to land on screens this Autumn (likely late September) as a TV special. The site discovered the upcoming project thanks to the poster below, and announce that it will be based on the video game series, which is itself based on the TV show. Don’t think about that too much, it gets a little confusing. ComingSoon also ran with an official update on the upcoming Star Wars cartoon series: Today, George Lucas is hard at work on a second animated series that will complement ‘The Clone Wars’, taking ‘Star Wars’ in a completely new and fun direction. What with the release of the Star Wars blu-ray collection, and the 3D cinematic re-releases that I personally will only watch begrudgingly, it’s an…

LEGO Star Wars III Commercial is Friggin’ ADORABLE

Ah, the LEGO series. It’s surprisingly been a good one. Not necessarily triple-A, per se, but from Batman to Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, they’ve all been pretty darn solid titles. And how could we forget the LEGO Star Wars series and all of its inherent adorability? We just can’t. And this commercial for LEGO Star Wars III, which will hit the Nintendo DS, 3DS and Wii later this month, doesn’t do much to combat that statement. Just look at Yoda at the end of the spot. TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT TO PINCH THOSE CHEEKS AND PURR! Check out the cuteness below.
