If you live on the East Coast and the constant snow is getting you down, you should probably find a way to have some fun with it… like this guy!
Sent to track down the mysterious figure behind the deaths of several Jedi, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi find themselves on the trail of Count Dooku’s newest apprentice – the monstrous Savage Opress. However, Dooku and Asajj Ventress discover that their creation has a will of his own, and that he has grown more powerful than either of them had anticipated – perhaps even more powerful than the combined forces of the Jedi and the Sith. The end begins in “Witches of the Mist,” the final chapter of a thrilling, three-part Clone Wars arc – airing at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT Friday, January 21 on Cartoon Network.
Count Dooku visits the witches of Dathomir, seeking to replace Asajj Ventress with a new, deadlier apprentice. Little does he know that his new protégée – the formidable Savage Opress – has been selected by Ventress herself, and that the Nightsisters have used their witchcraft to transform the warrior into a monstrous killer without remorse, compassion or loyalty. The second chapter of a three-part Clone Wars arc, “Monster” airs at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT Friday, January 14 on Cartoon Network.
The most anticipated Blu-ray release ever — the Star Wars Saga — emerges from light speed this September 2011. For the first time, all six of George Lucas’ epic films (Episodes I-VI) are united in one complete set. Fans worldwide are able to pre-order now with online retailers.
Troubled by Asajj Ventress’ growing prowess with the dark side of the Force, Darth Sidious commands Count Dooku to eliminate her. But Ventress survives Dooku’s assassination attempt, and the jilted former apprentice vows to take revenge, enlisting the aid of her kinswomen – the mystical Nightsisters of Dathomir – in her sinister scheme. Evil clashes with evil and sparks fly – igniting the fuse for the launch of the explosive second half of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season Three. Darkness falls and the end begins with “Nightsisters,” an all-new episode debuting at an ALL-NEW TIME – 8:30 p.m. ET/PT Friday, January 7 on Cartoon Network.
This week, Spoilerite Brad wanted to know which was the better Star Wars Parody?
That certainly makes for a great question, but why don’t we add our own Major Spoilers Twist?
If you have a ton of free time, a passion for Star Wars, you have a machine shop that can go to town on metal, and a knowledge of circuitry, you may be able to make your own Lightsaber. Bradley Lewis documented his process of building his own saber at Slothfurnace.com and the results are nothing short of amazing.
Of course, the time, effort, energy and money dumped into this project is probably a lot more than a Force FX lightsaber that runs around $100.00 online.
Thanks for the tip, Rob!
If you aren’t old enough to have seen the Star Wars Christmas Special on television when it originally aired, then you are either A) incredibly lucky, or B) incredibly lucky. The horrible show has made its way to bootlegged DVD and VHS tapes over the years, and though many have had it in their hands, still sitting through the event can be vomit inducing.
Someone out there made it through the whole thing, and then took the time to boil it down to five minutes of the best parts of the special – and yes, it does include Bea Arthur singing. Or maybe it doesn’t… I still can’t bring myself to watching more than 30 seconds…
Thanks for the tip, Cameron!
The second half of Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns to the Cartoon Network on January 7, 2011, and we’ve found the teaser trailer! The one thing I will say is make sure you watch the final 10 seconds of the video.
If there is one thing I’ve learned in all my years of hanging around die-hard pop culture and comic book fans is they love life sized merchandise, and they also love anything autographed by a number of stars and creators. If you really want to impress the Star Wars fan in your life, own a bit of memorabilia, and help out a worthy cause, check out eFX Collectibles auction going on right now on eBay.
The signatures from the cast and crew of the original “Star Wars” Trilogy include George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Frank Oz, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Frank Oz, Kenny Baker, John Williams, Lawrence Kasdan, Peter Mayhew, Jeremy Bulloch, David Prowse and the late Irvin Kershner, director of “The Empire Strikes Back,” to whom the auction is dedicated.
“The helmet traveled more than 25,000 miles – from Southern California to Skywalker Ranch to London and New York and many places in between to be signed, and it’s an amazing sight to behold,” said Bryan Ono, president of eFX Inc., who spearheaded the efforts to collect the autographs.
The auction benefits the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and considering all the names on the helmet, this is going to be a highly sought after item. And as the auction kicks off (a few moments ago), the bidding is already up to $5,100.00.
Here’s a holiday treat for fans of Star Wars – Robot Chicken taking on the third movie in the franchise.
I’ve seen the female Stormtroopers, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen a female Boba Fett (would that make her Barbie Fett?)
Makes you wonder… and by wonder, you know what I mean…
