In a galaxy far, far away (read: probably Comic Con), a boy met a girl. They fell in love. Then came the day to make it official.
But what kind of ring do you give to your very own Princess Leia? Thanks to this Etsy seller, there’s only one answer to that question.
The Luke Skywalker lightsaber design engagement ring.
Crafted from 18kt gold with contrasting elements, and featuring a glittering ‘laser’ of emeralds, the conflict-free piece by US-based jewellers Glasmann and Hanson rings in at $NZ2308.84.
Or are you more of a couple that like to embrace the dark side?
Then you’ll be wanting the Darth Vader-themed lightsaber, encrusted with rubies and clocking in at $NZ1629.77.
The rise of online marketplace Etsy, where designers can tout their wares to a global audience, has meant couples are able to get their hands on more, shall we say niche, pieces of jewellery. Items which can signify a mutual interest as well as a neverending love.

Japanese toy maker Kaiyodo has finally released there C-3PO. Kaiyodo is well known for Revoltech. They’ve previously announced that C-3PO will be the 3rd release following R2-D2 in March 2015. I was really excited and looking forward to getting Kaiyodo “Star Wars”. C-3PO isn’t really movie accurate although he is pretty detailed. He has about 14 points of articulation and stands about 6″ inches tall. He’s pretty light and not so heavy, made of plastic parts. He comes with MSE-6 series fixing Droid, Optional hands x2, Stand base and Round base. While having 14 points of articulation he uses 12.
Threepio’s advanced articulation and pose ability allow for perfectly capture the expression of his personality. The paint application captures his likeness based off The Empire Strikes Back. The black Weathered wash on the lining gives it a more detailed look. He was released this month and can be found in many online stores. Overall, C-3PO is a great figure released by Kaiyodo. Look for his counter part R2-D2 to be released in March 2015
Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi — the first-ever novel written from Luke Skywalker’s point of view — hits stores March 3. Written by Kevin Hearne and set between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, it finds the not-yet-a-Jedi hero sent on a daring rescue mission by Rebel leaders Princess Leia Organa and Admiral Ackbar. Showcasing Luke at a key point in his life, Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi is essential reading.
StarWars.com has a special preview — as well as a look at early designs for the cover by Larry Rostant (with Scott Biel).

Boba Fett met his doom upon the sands of Tatooine in Return of the Jedi. He fell into the Great Pit of Carkoon into the mouth of the fearful and if we’re being honest, really gross, Sarlacc. It’s an awful fate that means he’ll be kept alive and slowly digested for over a thousand years. Yuck. Stories in Star Wars Legends (non-canon) have resurrected Boba Fett by claiming he managed to crawl out of the pit and avoid being consumed by the Sarlacc, but LEGO builder Daniel Stoeffler has come up with another idea and he brought his story to life with a massive, detailed diorama.

Most of us have a favorite genre of games. From RPGs to shooters, we’re drawn to titles that are familiar and fun. For some of us this means hitting up the next Call of Duty or Battlefield, while for others it’s checking out every new space flight simulator that comes out, such as Elite: Dangerous or the upcoming Star Citizen. After all, just because we’re Star Wars fans doesn’t mean we only play Star Wars games.
So, in lieu of simply waiting for the 2015 Star Wars: Battlefront, allow me to make some classic Star Wars game recommendations for fans of these other recent or upcoming major games.
