More on SW Insider’s TPM Tribute

March 20, 2009

My new Insider arrived a couple of days ago. Here are more details about the 100-page issue celebrating 10 years of TPM:

*A complete guide to Episode I (whatever that means)

*The cast and crew of TPM on making movie history

*A guide to everyone’s favorite sport, podracing

*How Episode I went beyond movie theaters! (their quote)

*Interview with Jake Lloyd

It’s due to appear on U.S. newsstands April 28, meaning it will end up in your mailbox at the end of next month.

Clone Wars Exhibit in Indianapolis

March 18, 2009

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Exhibition opens March 23 at The Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, home of two SW Celebrations, and will run until January 31, 2010. The exhibit features maquettes, concept art, and designs from the t.v. show alongside artifacts from all six SW films. I’m willing to bet my entire SW collection there will also be a gift shop overflowing with SW souvenirs ;). No word on whether the exhibit is going to travel to other cities but if it does well in Indy, it’s almost a certainty that it may be in your town sometime in the next couple of years.

There’s nothing about it yet on The Children’s Museum website (my info came from TFN), but you can find someone to harass about the show here!

Clone Wars Easter Egg Kits

March 18, 2009

At Target today, I spotted a new Clone Wars Easter Egg kit, complete with a glow in the dark poster! In the aisles with all of the Easter decorations, egg kits, candy, and baskets, there are also small toys. I’ve mentioned before small LEGO kits that are available, but today I saw CW mini puzzles packaged with Galactic Heroes figures. The only ones they had were Yoda and Obi-Wan.

Sad news for Liam Neeson

March 18, 2009

Thoughts and prayers for Neeson, their children, and their families.

Update: Sadly, Richardson has passed away at the age of 45.
