  You know how we love to bring you cool stuff made by fans. Here is a very talented designer who has created an awesome little BB-8 Star Wars droid. We had to share this with you because not only is it awesome, he tells you how to make it for yourself. Christian Poulsen is currently in the process of finishing his degree in Industrial Design at Brigham Young University and not only has created this cool little project, but is also telling us how to do it. And if you want to do it for yourself, he even posted it to MakeZine.com with full instructions so you too can have your own BB-8 Star Wars Droid. He’s an industrial designer who has taken his love of Star Wars and combined it with his talent to create something pretty awesome. Here he explains why he did it: As an industrial designer, I’ve been particularly fascinated by products that have personality and emotion. And I think the droids in Star Wars have always been really great at capturing a character without facial...

Some Character Speculation for The Force Awakens

Posted by on Apr 16, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

The rumors surrounding The Force Awakens are absolutely crazy. There are new ones every day; some of them are very clearly made up, others seem like they could be legitimate, and a select few get confirmed (or at least corroborated). I’ve sifted through quite a few of these rumors, and here are some of the most interesting things that I’ve heard so far. Warning: character-related and minor plot-related spoilers. The “main villain,” as reported by MovieWeb, is a cyborg Inquisitor who holds ties to the Sith. He’s reported to have red eyes to match his red lightsaber, and has machine parts throughout his body, similar to Vader, but with no mask (this is likely to be the cyborg-looking guy we saw in some earlier concept art). This could give us some interesting insights into the plot; although the Empire has taken a serious hit, the Sith seem to be fine . . . will The Force Awakens detail a second rising of the Sith? Is that what the title refers to? Another...

The Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Books Available for Pre-Order

Posted by on Apr 11, 2015 in books, Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

We were pretty excited to hear that there were going to be at least 20 new Star Wars books, ranging from novels to sticker books, coming out this fall. And now they’re here—the first pre-orders are available! Not all of the books have been announced yet, but it’s clear that Disney is placing a heavy emphasis on filling fans in on what happened between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. In addition to the Marvel comic series we discussed earlier, Shattered Empire, we can now see a few more titles. Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath presents an intriguing cover, with “The war is not over” emblazoned on the cover. Looks like Disney’s rewriting the canon quite a bit (we had some idea that this was the case when we saw Stormtroopers in the trailer, but this lends even more credence to the idea). The book’s description also contains the line “And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a...

Want to See Another Star Wars Trailer?

Posted by on Apr 2, 2015 in star wars news, Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Then go see the new Avengers movie! We’ve seen one trailer for The Force Awakens, and we’ll be seeing a new one soon—in front of Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s been rumored for a while, and with multiple sources reporting this release for the next trailer, it seems very likely. Age of Ultron comes out on May 1st in North America, but has release dates around the world starting on April 22nd, so you can bet that we’ll see some bootleg cell phone recordings of the trailer hitting YouTube before that. The trailer will also be shown at the Star Wars Celebration convention, which runs from April 16th to 19th. After JJ Abrams’ crackdown on leaks coming off of the set, it seems likely that Lucasfilm could try to stay one step ahead of bootleggers and just put the trailer out on the internet after the convention, before anyone has a chance to put up a low-quality copy. While Disney will want the trailer to draw more people to their Avengers movie, seeing the...
