Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday

Ever since Disney bought Lucas­film comic book fans have been waiting for Star Wars to return to home.  The very first licensed Star Wars comics were produced by Marvel so there is a nice symmetry to this, though we shouldn’t dismiss the fine work done by Dark Horse with the fran­chise over the years. So how does … Continue reading Comic Book Review: Star Wars #1 by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay — Meet Snowbafett

Now I’m on record (repeat­edly) on the subject of just how lame a  char­acter Boba Fett actu­ally is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn’t hyper­bole. That’s actu­ally where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way). So Amber … Continue reading Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay — Meet Snow­bafett

Star Wars Fan Art — Darth Talon Will Make You Tremble

Darth Talon for those who don’t track all the details of the assorted books and comics is a Lethan Twi’lek who became a Sith Lady as part of Darth Krayt’s One Sith (so says Wook­iepedia). This all happens 100 or so years after the fall of the Emperor so you can safely assume it’s not canon any more … Continue reading Star Wars Fan Art — Darth Talon Will Make You Tremble

LEGO Star Wars Cosplay — LEGO Boba Fett

How about that for a geek triumvi­rate head­line? Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy’s least compe­tent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it’s really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third lamest char­acter in Star Wars. It’s prob­ably the most convincing LEGO … Continue reading LEGO Star Wars Cosplay — LEGO Boba Fett

Death Star + Balloons = Pixar / Star Wars Mashup Tattoo

Okay that’s pretty cool. I only share tattoos occa­sion­ally because I’m not really into them as a general rule. But some­times the design just looks so good or the idea is so clever they need sharing. And this is one of those. What do you get if you combine Star Wars and Pixar’s UP? Well obvi­ously you … Continue reading Death Star + Balloons = Pixar / Star Wars Mashup Tattoo

Disney / Star Wars Cosplay — Slave Jasmine

Okay so this is a Disney / Star Wars crossover, but it’s also now a Disney/Disney crossover. And tech­ni­cally both of the char­ac­ters are Disney Princesses. Combining Jasmine from Aladdin and Princess Leia in her Slave Leia costume does seem to work very well. Beside the slave Leia costume is just geek classic. The stuffed tiger is … Continue reading Disney / Star Wars Cosplay — Slave Jasmine

Star Wars Fan Art by Kaz Omori

I’ve posted some artwork by Kaz Omori before. I love the style he uses. Here he has created a Star Wars poster in that same style and it fits really well. Perhaps because of Star Wars well docu­mented influ­ences from Japanese cinema? Source: Blurppy​.com Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of eoghann​.com. You can get updated on … Continue reading Star Wars Fan Art by Kaz Omori

Star Was Cosplay — Mara Jade Skywalker

I real­ized I hadn’t posted any good Star Wars cosplay in some time so I’m hastily recti­fying that terrible situ­a­tion. I’m not clear what Mara Jade’s status is in Star Wars conti­nuity now that large chunks of the EU have been jetti­soned. I guess we find out if she’s married to Luke Skywalker when Episode VII comes out. Either … Continue reading Star Was Cosplay — Mara Jade Skywalker

Star Wars Fan Art — Original Trilogy Poster Art

Artist Andy Fairhurst has created these three posters, one for each of the films in the orig­inal Star Wars trilogy. Each poster is clev­erly themed around what might be consid­ered the domi­nant planet of that movie.They are clev­erly themat­i­cally linked by each featuring vehi­cles at the top of the poster and the face of a key … Continue reading Star Wars Fan Art — Orig­inal Trilogy Poster Art

Gigantic LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer Is Bigger Than You Are

LEGO Star Wars is popular.of course and LEGO does sell an offi­cial Super Star Destroyer set. But that is a paltry thing compared to this beast of a model. The builder Jerac esti­mates that his LEGO Impe­rial Star Destroyer weighs around 110lbs, is over 6 and half feet in length and contains over 40,000 bricks. It is huge. … Continue reading Gigantic LEGO Impe­rial Star Destroyer Is Bigger Than You Are

This LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder Isn’t Really

This picture shows a lovely LEGO model of a Star Wars Snowspeeder in all it’s glory and I think it passes first inspec­tion pretty well. I mean there are even imper­fec­tions on the clear plastic wind­shield. But once you look at it more closely you realize there are no LEGO logos on the studs and then as you study … Continue reading This LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder Isn’t Really

Star Wars Meets Arrow In Arrow Jedi

This mashup of Star Wars and Arrow is a remark­ably seam­less combi­na­tion of two entirely different universes and tones. It’s utterly point­less and yet also bril­liant at the same time. Actu­ally Arrow looks pretty good here fighting with light sabers and clearly Diggle was born to fire a blaster. http://​youtu​.be/​y​I​V​G​P​E​G​I​HyI Eoghann Irving Overly opin­ion­ated owner and author of … Continue reading Star Wars Meets Arrow In Arrow Jedi
