My dreams have come true!
Archive for the ‘star wars’ Category
I like Darths & Droids a lot better than I did DM of the Rings because it reminds me a lot more of my role-playing experiences. Though, in all fairness, Darths & Droids benefits from the experimenting done by DMotR. If you’ve ever played an RPG and have even a passing tolerance for Star Wars, you’re going to love this.
I don’t remember where I found this; I just like it and don’t remember seeing it hanging in theaters.
Betty and Veronica: Super-Spies

I need a break from Star Wars. I’m not digging the Clone Wars cartoon like I should and the whole Extended Universe is now as muddled and self-contradictory as the Star Trek EU ever was. I still like the original trilogy, but I think I need to back away from Star Wars while that’s still true. There are a couple of notable exceptions to that policy though.
Dinosaurs invade the modern world. Coming soon to BBCAmerica.
Axis and Allies, if there had been giant robots and other alien tech available during WWII.
Speaking of boardgames…
Rick Remender and Eric Nguyen are coming out with a comic about giant robots, monsters, and consumer culture.
More giant robots vs. giant monsters
Robert Hood’s got the dope on G. It features one of the coolest giant robot designs I’ve ever seen. And a giant monster using a couple of train cars as nunchuks.
Additional Laws of Robotics
Something Awful has discovered 27 more, less-famous Laws that Asimov came up with. Like this one:
23. A robot must shut up around girls and let me, Isaac Asimov, do the talking; however, a robot may bail me out if things start to go haywire.
Pulp Sci Fi work safety posters
Buck Rogers Doll
It’s a great-looking doll. I just don’t know if it’s $175 worth of great-looking.
And as long as we’re talking about Battlestar Galactica spin-offs I’m not interested in
TokyoPop’s got a BSG manga anthology coming out.
Okay, back to the Awesome…
Whatever eFx Collectibles is asking for this Ralph McQuarrie version Vader helmet, it’ll be worth it.
You baked that? You’re braver than I thought.
“And you’re a crazy, flying fool!”
I wish I was a member of the Aviator’s Club that Link Thorne belongs to. Their cigarette girls are Awesome.
Custom-made Indiana Jones DVD case
I wish there was a picture of it open, but even so… holy mackerel that’s cool.
Indy Voodoo doll
As long as I’m wishing, I wish this was a replica and not the actual prop from the movie. Then I might be able to afford it.
John Byrne’s Compleat Next Men
IDW is collecting the entire series of John Byrne’s Next Men, including the 2110 prequel one-shot and a bunch of extras. I hope it does well and attracts a lot of new readers because Byrne is not-quite-promising that he’ll continue the story if the collections do well.
Joanna asks if that kind of promise is a sort of blackmail and sums it up as, “Buy my old unfinished series — and if enough of you do, maybe I’ll finish it.” I don’t think it’s quite as nefarious as that. Next Men works beautifully well just like it is. It doesn’t need to be finished to get a complete story.
But, as someone who really loved the series – it’s the best thought-out time travel story I’ve ever read, and it features the first appearance of Hellboy (pre-dating even “Seed of Destruction”) – I’d love to see more of it. I interpret Byrne’s statement as wishing-out-loud, not blackmail. Buy it because it’s good; not because Byrne may or may not make a sequel if you do.

Haven’t seen The Dark Knight yet
Would’ve fought the midnight crowds if the movie was going to be more like this…
Actually, I’m getting more and more excited about it. Or maybe “curious” is a better adjective. Looking forward to Thursday when I’ll finally be able to see it.
Spectacular Spider-Man: Attack of the Lizard
Now this I’m looking forward to. My son is going to freak.
Cartoon Network Saturday nights
Cartoon Network announced its Saturday evening programming block that will include the Clone Wars cartoon, Ben 10, and “a new animated incarnation of Batman.” Presumably the Brave and the Bold series that’ll team him up with different superheroes each week.
Adventureblog Theater: Emo Hulk, animated Kirk/Spock love, why the Six Million Dollar Man ruled, Doogie vs. Mal, and the Mandalorian Flashdance
Weird. There’s a scene in this trailer that I don’t remember being in the Incredible Hulk movie at all. It’s not the arctic scene either. Starts about 30 seconds in.
Spock wants to live like common people
Six Million Dollar Man vs. Bigfoot
The Bionic Woman remake wouldn’t have failed if it had been more like this. (I never realized that Bigfoot was played by Andre the Giant. Awesome.)

Doogie Howser vs. Mal Reynolds
He can’t have it all; now Fett’s dancing for his life.
Adventureblog Theater: Batman’s swastika, the MMMS, Predator vs. Ewoks, Indy’s dark side, and dancing Star Wars
Batman seems a little friendly with the Nazis
Many more Batman cameos (though none that weird) at SF Signal.
The Mighty Marvel Marching Society
Stand a little straighter. Walk a little prouder.
(Thanks, Mark Evanier!)
Predator vs. Ewoks
And you thought getting beat by Danny Glover was embarrassing.
(Thanks, SF Signal!)
Indy’s dark side
“That guy threw my grandfather into a plane propeller.”
Dance, Wookiee! Dance!
Chewie and a Jawa doing the Flashdance is awesome. Leia and Amidala grooving to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” is a bit lame, but made better once the Gamorrean guard joins in. Make sure you stick around to the end though for Vader, some Stormtroopers, and “Thriller.”
What was the deal in the ’80s with reimagining classic TV shows as scifi cartoons?
The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang
Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space
Oh, yeah. That’s right.
Speaking of which…
