I’ve been watching Whale Wars on Animal Planet, the show follows Captain Paul Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, as he and his crew aboard the Steve Irwin attempt to deter Japanese ships that hunt minke and fin whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
Being an animal rights activist, and of course a Star Wars fan, I got a kick out seeing the rebel and imperial logos prominently displayed on the crews helmets.
I found this on Flickr and have no idea what the story is behind the statue, or if it’s really Darth Vader or not.
This is directly in front of San Francisco City Hall.No comments
Just stumbled on this while browsing Wookiepedia and thought I’d share.
From a blog entry on their site from last year
STAR WARS OUTSIDER, a new fan-produced, Expanded Universe PDF-magazine.
The idea is to bring well-known fans in the community together to create an entertaining magazine that is sure to please fans that are always craving more Star Wars material.
I’m always amazed what people can build from Lego. Here’s a bunch of Artoo’s I found on Flickr
This full size Artoo is from an FAO Schwartz store somewhere in the world
I’m pretty sure this one from Comic-Con 2007 is the same design
This one is from Lego Land in California. The dome rotates, it lights work and it makes the familiar R2 sounds
Then there’s the droid development kit from Lego. I still have one myself in a box that need to be built up one day.No comments
