Have your youngling show his (or her…girls are SW fans too!) love for SW with a new long-sleeved tee featuring Vader, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Grievous, and Yoda. It supposedly glows in the dark too.Admittedly, the silkscreening isn’t awesome but the $8.99 tee is on sale this week for $6.99, making it a nice Christmas or Chanukah gift idea for the young padawans in your life. Find it in the boys’ department.(We won’t tell if you buy a L or XL for yourself.)

I just bought this today, so I can’t give a full review of it yet, but flipping through it, the artwork alone is worth buying this tome by Ryder Windham. It’s gorgeous! The book covers a lot of EU material and of course Eps IV-VI, but there’s plenty of prequel era stuff too, including a chapter on The Chosen One.
Cake chef Duff Goldman, star of Food Network’s highly entertaining Ace of Cakes and proprietor of Baltimore’s Charm City Cakes, was interviewed for starwars.com’s Star Wars Rocks series and aside from the pix of awesome SW cakes, there was this quote that put a smile on my face:
Star Wars movies to me are like Led Zepplin songs. My favorite completely depends on what mood I’m in. My favorite scene from the films is actually in The Phantom Menace when Qui-Gon has been turned down for the parts he needs to repair his ship, and he says to Obi-Wan, “I’m sure a solution will present itself.” And that has become sort of a mantra for me. I say that all the time.
Picking the Anakin Skywalker Homepage as PT Friendly Site of the Week must’ve jinxed it, because the message board server “upgraded” its software and pretty much destroyed the board. Well, the message board is back at a new server:http://homepageforums.proboards55.com/index.cgi
This is from oxward321, who posted this on his starwars.com blog a while back:
Yesterday I made a lunchtime run to Target. While I was in the store, I passed a couple of young boys (I’d say they were 8-10 years of age), one of which was wearing a SW t-shirt. They were talking about the way Jar Jar walks and one of them starts imitating everyone’s favorite goofy Gungan.Truly wonderful the mind of a child is ;).
Today, Hayden Christensen was a guest on the talk show The View. He was there to promote his new film Awake, but he also talked about SW and about George Lucas. The cool part? When Whoopi Goldberg mentioned Anakin Skywalker, the audience broke into enthusiastic applause. Go check it out on http://www.desiringhayden.net!
The nepotism continues with this week’s site ;). ladyaeryn is a friend and the webmiss of The Moons Of Iego, a site entirely devoted to everyone’s favorite doomed couple, Anakin and Padmé. Established in 1999, it’s probably the oldest A/P site in existence. Here fans can find lots of graphics like wallpapers, photo manips, fan art, and in all likelihood the largest collection of A/P photo stills and screencaps on the internet. There’s also a nice selection of fan fic and other fun stuff: http://moonsofiego.thepensieve.net/
The beans were spilled during a Hasbro meeting. Lucasfilm won’t exactly confirm or deny:
Frankly, I think it’s an awesome idea. I’m always happy to see SW at the movie theater!
