I love Star Wars just as much as the next guy but…

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while – been busy with my new team NICE WORK for the 48hr film challenge set to begin on Aug 8th. We’ve had our first team meeting and it went well. We are going to do great (again) this year.

So I was surfing the internet catching up on the blogs I visit daily and I came across a couple of interesting items.

Yoda ChopsticksLight Saber Chop sticks?

I must admit they do look intriguing. But c’mon. that’s almost as bad as having Romulan Ale…okay I admit it – I have some of that in my fridge. Big shout out to my Bro-in-Law Jesse who got that for me.

But back to the Light Saber chop sticks. I checked them out at the Kotous website and they do look cool. They come in a nice R2D2 packaging. Apparently they will have more information at their booth at ComiCon 2009. But it’s also one of times where I slap my forehead and say, “Why didn’t I think if that!”

ComicCon – I need to go to that someday.

Old Star Wars CastNow – here’s another interesting tidbit of Star Wars fan lore. What do you make of this picture on the left? You can click on it to make it larger.

Apparently it’s the Star Wars cast in a photo shoot during Star Wars for the 1978 SEARS CATALOG!

Wow, what a a great picture of the iconic actors doing something before they were really famous. See you can name the characters…besides the obvious ones, you know, the ones with out fur, metal or shiny plastic armor.

Pretty cool stuff for a Friday. Have a great weekend.


PS – see if you guessed like me. From right to left back row first.

Han Solo – Darth Vader – Chewbacca – Princess Leia (of course), Luke Skywalker and R2D2.

    It’s Harrison Ford, David Prowse, Peter Mayhew, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Kenny Baker.

    Where’s Anthony Daniels (C3PO)?
