Boba Fett hangs up his helmet

It was announced Tuesday that Jeremy Bulloch, the man who first played our favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett, will be retiring from the convention circuit. A staple at most fan conventions for the past 20 years, Bulloch was one of the several actors who was able to capitalize on the legacy of such an iconic character – making him a welcome and beloved addition to the autograph tables. According to his statement on the Official...

Book Review: Rebel Rising

Let me begin with: if you haven’t seen Rogue One, there’s going to be spoilers below. So stop reading, watch the movie, then come back. Okay are you done? Okay let’s go. I’m a huge fan of Rogue One. In fact, it’s possibly my favorite Star Wars movie. It’s the prequel to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, it has a fun Oceans 11 vibe, Vader kicks some sweet rebel ass at the end,...

Mark Hamill punked us all with his twitter post!

Earlier we posted about the fun costume Mark Hamill said he donned at SDCC to poke fun President Trump. Thanks to some cleaver sleuths on the Facebook group ‘SDCC Attendees’, we have learned in fact that it was NOT Mark Hamill in the Orange Vader costume. A few members were quick to point out that they actually sat next to this fine person when they removed the helmet and it was NOT, Mark Hamill.

Mark Hamill trolls Trump @SDCC dressed as Darth Orange

It’s no secret that there are a lot of celebrities that like to wonder the floors of the big cons incognito and later surprise fans on twitter when they post their photos. Mark Hamill is pretty notorious for this and he used his Day 4 costume at SDCC this year to poke fun at President Trump. Twitter user Brendan Bajillioz (@WillHunting562) got the surprise of a lifetime when he posted some pics of an Orange...

Billy Dee Williams Returns to Star Wars – It’s About Time!

It’s official! According to the Hollywood Reporter Billy Dee Williams will be reprising his role as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9.  Rumors started circulating last week when Williams backed out of a convention citing filming conflicts. And let’s be honest, while we love Billy Dee he’s not doing Ladies Man 2: Courvoisier Confidential any time soon. His life is Star Wars now so any filming can be directly brought back to...

Star Wars Original Concept Vehicles from Hot Wheels

Holy crap. I can’t believe I missed this back in April. And now, I have a serious case of FOMO. FOMO to the point that I’ve been trolling Ebay to find any of the five in the first Star Wars Original Concepts series from Hot Wheels. This series celebrates the original concepts by Colin Cantwell, the artist/model maker behind the iconic X-Wing, Millennium  Falcon, Star Destroyer, and TIE Fighters (to name a few). If you...
