It’s That Time Again

That’s right, Star Wars Prequel Appreciation Day 2016 is right around the corner.

Usually I do something on the site May 19, except for the 10th anniversary of AOTC when I went with May 16. However, it will be celebrated on the blog May 20 for reasons having to do with being really busy Friday the 19th, meaning I won’t be able to do much of anything until late on the 19th.

Here’s what I want to do this year:

1. If you have any kind of social media account (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Snapchat, Periscope, Vine, etc.), blog, website, or podcast of any sort, post on what are your 10 favorite things about the prequels. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you want. It can be text, it can be visual, it can be verbal. It can be gifs, it can be video. It can be a list or it can be a long essay with extensive details. Whatever you want to do. And you can post it on May 19 or earlier if you want.

2. Once you’ve made your post, send me the link! I’m at SWPASadmin@gmail.com. You can also send me a link to @lazypadawan on Twitter or PM the Star Wars Prequel Appreciation page on Facebook.

3. On May 20, I will post all of the links so we can have a big hug over the prequels.

4. I don’t care about the content of your post so long as it is not anti-prequel (duh). Don’t spend all of your pixels on what you didn’t like. Also, try not to use your post to bash something else. I will not link to anything that is vulgar, gross, or pornographic.

That’s it! It’s that easy!

    This is my list of favorite things in the Star Wars prequel trilogy: way too many things to list.

    I’m not very good at identifying “absolute favourites,” but I do have some ideas coming to mind, from light-hearted little moments to the perhaps even profound. (Now, I just have to articulate them…) It was kind of nice for this to be brought up right now; I was thinking ahead to people saying “May the Fourth” to each other with knowing smirks but sort of dwelling on how I still don’t seem to have any motivation to buy a The Force Awakens Blu-Ray and how the Rogue One trailer didn’t do a lot for me…

    I think I might do it.

    If anyone wants some prequel exposure, Revell’s facebook page is raffling off a Force Awakens Millennium Falcon for Star Wars day. I don’t know if the model building side of Star Wars fandom has been addressed here but back when the Original Trilogy was coming out, it was pretty big business. In 1999 AMT/ERTL still had the license and got off to a pretty impressive start with the Phantom Menace models. They released a N-1 Starfighter, Droid Fighters, an AAT, a STAP, the Tri-bubble Bongo and an insanely detailed Anakin’s Podracer. Unfortunately they didn’t sell well as video games and digital entertainment pretty much shoved physical hobbies out of the spotlight. They gave up the license after that and for Attack of the Clones, none of the American companies put out any models, although Fine Molds, a Japanese company made Obi-Wan’s Delta 7 starfighter and the Jango Fett version of Slave I. But when Revenge of the Sith rolled along, Revell took up the baton and put out a line geared more towards smaller kids. I wasn’t buying much of them on their original release because they were snap together and pre painted, which is just missing the whole point, but in retrospect, I realized it was the only way to get some prequel era ships so I’ve been grabbing up some off ebay or model shops that carry older merchandise. Fortunately the paint is so thin, you can just prime right over them and do your own more detailed paint job. While Revell’s newest releases have all been for the Force Awakens, they still have a few of the Prequel ships in circulation. My work carries the ARC-170 model as a current and orderable item. Anyway, a lot of people in the comments section are posting Revell kits they have built, so if anyone happens to have built any of the Prequel ships from Revell, there’d be a good place to show it off and hey, you might win a Millennium Falcon. The only Prequel ships I built were from AMT/ERTL, and I’m not sure Revell would be pleased with me posting stuff from their competition.

    I’ll have to join in on this. I’ve been trying to be a lot more active on Facebook now, thanks to my co-workers. This definitely qualifies.

    I’ll see what I can come up with. 🙂
