The Original Trilogy / ROTJ Lost Footage?
« on: October 28, 2013, 11:29 AM »
Lost 'Return of the Jedi' footage discovered on $699 LaserDisc.

Check out the text from the article:



Buyers of a rare LaserDisc used to demonstrate an 80s-vintage film editing system have found it full of raw footage from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, graciously posting clips to a Facebook account over the course of the past several days. Most of the clips are from Luke Skywalker's last visit to Yoda on Dagobah, but another gem features a full minute (without audio, unfortunately) of R2-D2 repairing Skywalker's damaged X-wing.
 
For the lucky buyer, $699 well spent

The origin of the LaserDisc isn't entirely clear, but it was purchased for $699 off eBay, apparently once used to demonstrate Lucasfilm's EditDroid station one of the first digital film editing systems sold nearly 30 years ago. Ironically, George Lucas himself never used EditDroid to make a movie; the Star Wars clips were loaded simply to show off its capabilities to prospective buyers.

Lucasfilm, of course, is no stranger to fiercely protecting Star Wars copyrights, and it's reasonable to assume the disc buyer's clips may not stay online for long particularly considering that they'd make a great addition to a future Blu-ray bundle.


The article includes some of the footage of R2-D2 making repairs on Luke's X-Wing.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / New York Comic-Con 2013
« on: September 25, 2013, 01:09 PM »
So, NY Comic Con is coming up in a bit over 2 weeks.  And Hasbro has made a point of exhibiting at the show as it has quickly grown into one of the biggest pop culture events of the year.  And the last time I went, Hasbro had some new figures to show off.  Will they again this year?  I'm certainly hoping so, since there wasn't that much revealed at the summer conventions.  Could we see wave 4 of the Black Series?  Maybe a hardcopy of Merumeru?  I'm hoping so.

Could this be the first figure of wave 3?  GH gives us a look at the 6" Obi-Wan Kenobi (Revenge Of The Sith)

Star Wars Universe / Star Wars Movie Spin-Offs?
« on: February 5, 2013, 08:25 AM »
In related news...

What's the first stand alone STAR WARS film to be made?

It looks like it could be a Yoda story.  Given the fact that Yoda was 900 years old, there seems to be plenty of ground that could be covered in exploring the diminutive Jedi Master.

___  VC25 - R2-D2 with pop-up lightsaber & drink tray
___  VC26 - Rebel Commando
___  VC38 - Clone Trooper (212th Battalion)


WAVE 6 (2011 WAVE 2)
___  VC44 - Luke Skywalker (Dagobah Landing)

___  VC46 - AT-RT Driver
___  VC47 - General Lando Calrissian
___  VC48 - Weequay (Skiff Master)

AT-RT Drivers for $5?  Nice!  It's probably one of my favorite Clones in the TVC line.

Middle Earth / The Hobbit - Toy Line
« on: December 17, 2011, 07:12 PM »
News is out about a couple of toy licensees for The Hobbit.  LEGO has signed on, and should do a pretty nice job with this.  A LEGO Smaug would be pretty awesome!

And then there's the figure line.  Check out this news from ToyNewsI.  A company called Bridge Direct has got the action figure license for The Hobbit.  Their credentials are less than impressive.

TV-9D9 / From Star Wars To Jedi - The Making Of A Saga
« on: July 14, 2009, 08:40 PM »
I was searching through some old videotapes that I'm getting set to ditch soon (dead format).  And while I was looking through what I had, I rediscovered a copy of From Star Wars To Jedi - The Making Of A Saga.  It was a documentary that came out in 1985 which went behind the scenes during the production of ROTJ and was actually pretty interesting to watch. 

I don't know if Lucasfilm would ever consider reissuing this on DVD.  But has anyone come across a decent *ahem bootleg* copy that's on DVD?

Hey Hasbro! / The Twilight
« on: November 14, 2008, 11:23 PM »
Is it me, or would the Twilight make a great toy?

The Twilight gets featured prominently again in tonight's CLONE WARS episode. Here's the running tally on Twilight appearances thus far...

CLONE WARS theatrical release
CLONE WARS episode 2 "Rising Malevolence"
CLONE WARS episode 3 "Shadow of Malevolence"
CLONE WARS episode 4 "Destroy Malevolence"
CLONE WARS episode 6 "Downfall of a droid"
CLONE WARS episode 7 "Duel of the droids"


Hasbro denied that there's a Twilight toy in the works in the most recent Q&A's.  But this vehicle seems like it would probably fit the box that the ARC-170 and Republic Gunship are packed into.
