Click for a big pic of the internal workings of a Star Wars AT-AT
Watch this animated GIF. It is the whole movie , The whole Star Wars Episode IV movie done in a simple animated GIF style. Can’t get much cooler or geekier than this , can you?
I don’t know what race or team ( I guess an Indy race) this is but it must have been advertising for an upcoming Star Wars movie or maybe a game.
Did ya know ? .. According to Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace Insider Guide, in the rough draft of Star Wars: Episode I, Toy Dampener was a Podracer that forced Anakin Skywalker’s pod to flip upside-down, landing onto of his own podracer.
Well, what can I say.. The costume fits her well.
In Episode V Boba Fett was played by Jeremy Bulloch. He also played Jeremoch Colton in Episode III.
He was in a few other famous shows as well – James Bond The Spy Who Loved Me in 1977 and Doctor Who in 1973
Vader - I made you some toast
Obi – It’s a bit on the Dark Side, isn’t it.
Star Wars fun fact - Yoda was able to hide on his home planet Dagobah because the planet was bathed in Dark Side energy when a Dark Jedi died on the planet – this shielded Yoda from scans for Light Side energy when Palpatine tried to destroy all Jedis.
Does Star Wars and Elvis mix? Well, I think not but it does make a good Star Wars photo. Hey, this Elvis looks like he is having some fun, I am not sure if it is just a costume of some type of Elvis tribute show – it’s good anyway.
A cool bit of Star Wars art. Someone has made a Star Wars Stormtrooper (I thought it was Vader at first) mask into the famous Playboy bunny logo. And all in pretty pink.
In The Phantom Menace novel, a Devlikk named Wan Sandage was known as a bit of a playboy and was one of the Outer Rim’s best podracer pilots. The podracer he flew was an Elsinore-Cordova Turbodyne 99-U racer.
What’s the Star Wars Lego stormtrooper minifigure to do, stuck in the computer keyboard looking just like he’s stuck in quicksand. Or maybe he is just playing hide and seek.
Star Wars fun facts - In the book Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina a stormtrooper squadron called Alvien was assigned to set up roadblocks around Mos Eisley in order to try to stop C-3PO and R2-D2 from escaping the planet Tatooine.
This is a pretty cool Star Wars photo isn’t it? I think it would have to have every single major actor from all the Star Wars movies that have been made.
I guess as with the newer movies most acting is CGI and green screen isn’t it?
I assume this is at some kind of protest. Any way, Darth Vader looks cool in his pink helmet and matching pink suit. I don’t know how the police riot squad are not all looking at him, maybe the people behind Darth are even stranger or maybe they are Princess Leia in a bikini (it’s not called Slave Princess or Slave Leia anymore , stupid george lucas changed it to Jabbas Prisoner – but check any older Star Wars stuff it always says Slave Princess or Slave Leia)
This photo shows The Millennium Falcon built as a bed. Now I maybe wrong but I think the girl in the bed now is probably the first the owners has ever had in his bed.
The Millennium Hawk is a fairly small sta-rship that was built and designed by the Millennium Astro-Engineering company, the same company the made Han Solos Millennium Falcon . This spear shaped ship was was popular with smugglers and criminals because of it’s speed from it’s two sublight drives.
Luke Skywalkers adoptive Uncle was Owen Lars. Owen was Obi-Wan Kenobi’s younger brother and people always thought he would be as great as his famous brother. Owen did not want that kind of stress, so he moved to Tatooine with his wife, Beru Weth, and they set up a moisture farm.
You know the story - They raised Luke as their own son and did their best to keep Luke from realising his true identity. Owen bought the R2-D2 and C-3PO droids , Luke tried to talk him into going to the Academy early. Owen refused to let him go. Luke stormed off. Owen Lars was killed when a group of Stormtroopers were tracking down R2-D2 and C-3PO and burnt down the moisture farm when they did not fine them.
Phil Brown was the actor playing Owen Lars in Star Wars movie but Thomas Hill did the character in the Radio version.
This is a pretty good behind the scenes Star Wars photo showing all the main actors from all the Star Wars movies made plus George Lucas holding a Yoda puppet.
Jar Jar Binks, like most Gungans, was skinny, lanky and had big frills behind his head. He was exiled from Otoh Gunga for repeatedly making blunders that placed other Gungan members in danger, including crashing Boss Nass’ heyblibber, swamping Boss Nass’s mansion while standing-in as a caterer, and opening the bubbles of the creatures in Otoh Gunga’s zoo.
Jar Jar was eating clams and drifting around the marshlands of Naboo when the Trade Federation began landing its assault force. He was saved by Qui-Gon Jinn, who rescued Jar Jar from added disciplinary action by demanding a life-debt on him. Boss Nass was hesitant to relinquish the chance to penalize Jar Jar, but was forced to comply with the life debt. Jar Jar then travelled with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Kenobi, aiding in protecting Queen Amidala throughout her skirmish with the Federation.
Jar Jar’s relationship with Queen Amidala led to a better relationship when she asked Boss Nass for support in the Battle of Naboo. Boss Nass attributed Jar Jar with getting the Gungans and humans together in peace, and was promoted to the rank of General for his hard work. Jar Jar Binks was acted by Ahmad Best in the movie Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Not much to say about this one. A T-shirt with Star Wars Lego characters battling it out. Good ol’ Chewbacca fighting a couple of Stormtroopers.
The ship that intercepted Han Solo and Chewbacca during their vital Kessel Run was called The Assessor. This was where Han was forced to dump the consignment of spice he was transporting, but was unable to recover it back and supply it to Jabba the Hutt. This put him severely in debt, and forced him to hide out on Tatooine. You know the rest … carbonite etc..
A little about the costume first. I have read that Carrie Fisher said that her costumes in the first 2 Star Wars movies were so long that people couldn’t tell if she was a woman. Well, the scanty outfit she wore in Return of the Jedi changed that. The Leia bikini was created by Aggie Guerard Rodgers. The costume department made a mold of Carrie Fisher's body so they could do a custom fit and they made forms of the slave bikini to suit different scenes in the movie. One was a hard metal one that she wore when she was not undertaking any stunts and one was made of formed rubber and lined with leather so it would be a bit more comfortable when doing stunts.
Anyway – How to make a Star Wars Princess Leia Metal Bikini
Put on your favourite cute bra then wrap your chest and shoulders in plastic wrap but not tight so it doesn’t flatten your chest, then use cotton cloth strips and watered down PVA glue as a cloth version of papier mache – I guess cloth mache. Get someone to help you as you can’t glue and stand still at the same time. Work fast as it dries fairly quickly.
When it goes hard you'll have a realistic cast of your breasts and chest area. Use a marker pen to make lines where you will build up on the bra with paper clay (you can get it at art shops - it's like a premade papier mache like soft clay) to mould up the raised metal patterns on the bra. Once it's all dry take it off and seal it all over with PVA then paint in metallic paint etc so it looks the part.
The bottom plate you make the same way and then finish it off by sticking two long strips of red, stretchy fabric to it. The strips should be wide enough to cover the insides of the thighs, about 250mm wide The strips should hang from the front and back of the bikini bottom down to the floor. Straps to hold it all together can be made from leather.
For the headpiece, once again, mold one using paper clay on a piece of cardboard.
Some Star Wars trivia - Darth Sidious sent Darth Maul to a planet called Chryya to make sure that the huge spice business on the planet was controlled by the Trade Federation. What happened though was the natives destroyed all the spice-making factories and all the equipment inside which in turn made the economy there worthless. Darth Maul did not foresee this and was punished by Darth Sidious for the massive failure.
Very nice drawing of boba and jango fett. Can’t remember where I got the pic from , probably a friend emailed to me but thanks to whoever created it.
Boba Fett and the Assassin Droids is the name of the Star Wars galaxy's original talentless band. The band members originated from the planet Adarlon, where they got a fairly steady cult following despite their terrible lack of ability in music. They only ever released singles and Blow'em All Away was there biggest single. It was so bad it has been banned by the Imperial Board of Culture.
