UPDATE: They did use a little bit of what I said- in the first minute or so of the program. You can listen here I might be on BBC World Service today on a program called “The World” The World Today . They’re doing a special on 30 years of Star Wars and I just […]

FlickrGaming.net has a ‘how-to’ on getting the old Tie Fighter Collector’s CD edition game to work on Windows XP. The miracle answer to all of this is an OpenSource DOS emulation tool called The VDMSound Project. It works with Windows XP (SP2 – not sure about SP1), 2000, and NT, but not Windows 95. Unlike […]
This is a cool story about a small town in Wales where the Millenium Falcon was built. For a long time the local folk believed that a flying saucer was being built as those involved were sworn to secrecy.For three months they worked on the only full-scale Millennium Falcon, the spaceship from the original Star […]
Just saw these cool Star Wars Bookends that feature Han Solo and Greedo sitting across from each other.
We’ve rolled our own Star Wars Search Engine with Rollyo and you can try it out.
The last evolution in the line of the Clone Troopers, encased in hardened white plastoid armor, these Imperial shock troops neutralize resistance to the New Order and are totally loyal to the Emperor even in the face of certain death. Used as first-strike forces, they cannot be bribed or blackmailed. Stormtroopers live in a totally-disciplined environment and are militaristic to the core.

The relatively lightweight and speedy All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) is used by Imperial forces for reconnaissance and ground support for both troops and the larger AT-AT walkers.
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith won two Saturn Awards yesterday: for Best Science Fiction Film and for Best Score. Good choices!
We were sure it would never happen- we would never get the original unaltered Star Wars trilogy on DVD. For all future generations, Greedo would always have shot first, the effects would have been flawless and so on.
And now Lucas changes his mind. More DVD money for them, I guess. The DVD will be available only for a limited time (=mad fan rush) between September and December this year, but the trouble is we all know it won’t be for a limited time. We’ve all been burnt before. Remember the Celebration “exclusive” toys that were later available online for all fan club members? Remember the multiple versions of multiple DVDs we’ve had.
