VINTAGE STAR WARS HALLOWEEN COLLECTIBLES

Via Starwars.com:

CHECK OUT SOME CLASSIC COSTUMES (KENNER-STYLE BOBA FETT!) AND RARE ITEMS CURRENTLY ON DISPLAY AT LUCASFILM.

Staring out from the lobby display case at Lucasfilm headquarters this month is a handful of vintage costumes, masks, cards, and other materials from the first few years of Star Wars at Halloween. While today’s youth or adult cosplayer can choose from a variety of mid-range to museum-grade replica costumes, the fan of the ‘70s was, well, a bit more modestly-equipped. We’ve selected five pieces from our lobby display that serve up both nostalgia for old-school fans and sympathy from younger ones.

25 Villains Reimagined As Heroes

Via Screenrant.com:

Over forty years ago, George Lucas began a trilogy that would go on to become a worldwide phenomenon. Star Wars has since spawned movies, TV shows, comics, books, video games and even theme park attractions, all taking place “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”. With ten live-action movies, plus an incredibly fleshed out Expanded Universe – rebranded Star Wars Legends – this franchise doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. 

The heroes and villains of Star Wars are some of the most enduring characters ever created. As such, viewers have become incredibly invested in their fates. Whether it be through stories or art, many fans have taken it upon themselves to rewrite Star Wars history, or at least, put a new spin on it. After all, viewers haven’t exactly been thrilled with every canonical entry in the series.

We all know that every story has two sides and as much as viewers adore the Jedi, many of them have undeniably found themselves lured over to the dark side. Darth Vader is probably the most iconic character of the entire franchise. Even those rare humans who have yet to sing the gospel of Star Wars know the Big Bad when they see him. Having an affinity for certain characters is one thing, but what about reimagining them completely? Some of these artists have chosen to completely recreate these villains as heroes, while others have merely chosen to depict them in a more heroic light. The results are undeniably awesome.

Here are25 Star Wars Villains Reimagined As Heroes.

Mark Hamill Teasing Fans About Episode 9 Title

Via Cnet.com:

Fans know all kinds of tidbits about Star Wars: Episode IX. They know J.J. Abrams is directing, that much of the cast is back, that the late, beloved Carrie Fisher will somehow appear.

But they don’t yet know the title, and star Mark Hamill is well aware of that fact. Hamill tweeted out a single word in two separate tweets, one on Thursday and one on Friday, leading some to believe he’s teasing the Episode IX title. More likely, he’s just teasing.

Hamill’s Thursday tweet read “THE (to be continued…),” and his Friday tweet read “PURPOSE (cont’d).”

When Hamill had just tweeted THE, it seemed likely that he was playing a title-related joke, since the earlier two films in this trilogy both began with “The.” But “Purpose”? That doesn’t seem like a very Star Wars word, certainly not along the lines of the rumor that the title will be “A New Order,” playing off the 1977 film’s “A New Hope” subtitle.

Hamill wasn’t saying what his THE PURPOSE tweets mean, but fans had fun with it.

Wrote one, “Spoiler alert: “The purpose of these tweets is to make you think I’m revealing the title of Episode 9 when in reality I’m just trolling all of you!”
