Watch Now: The Star Wars Holiday Special In Five Minutes

Leia's O Face?For those who celebrate Wookiee Life Day as opposed to all of the other end-of-year holidays, we have a treat for you… the Star Wars Holiday Special in 5 minutes, specially edited to only focus on the “live-action” stuff. Watch it here below.

If you haven’t seen the Holiday Special before, it’s certainly a gem from its time. If you thought Expanded Universe debates and Originals vs. Prequels debates turn out to divide fans, wait until you get in the middle of an argument about this thing.

Complete with Bea Arthur and Jefferson Starship, The Star Wars Holiday Special first aired in November 1978 and also featured Han and Chewie, Luke Skywalker with the WORST possible haircut ever, and Princess Leia singing a song that is sure to induce brain hemorrhages.

The original full special also marked a few firsts: one of which was the very first appearance of Boba Fett (before his debut in The Empire Strikes Back) in a short animated story involving Luke, Han, Chewie, the Droids, and some weird beast of burden Fett rides.

Oz WarsThe $9 t-shirt deal of the day over at Teefury is called “Oz Wars,” a mashed up of Star Wars with The Wizard Of Oz by artist Denism79.

The sale at Teefury began at midnight EST (Sunday, December 27, 2010) and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it’s gone forever.

The t-shirt design shows the characters from the original Star Wars trilogy in the roles from The Wizard Of Oz. Princess Leia, hair buns and all, is Dorothy; C-3PO is the Scarecrow; R2-D2 is the Tin Man, Chewbacca is the Cowardly Lion, and Darth Vader is Dorothy’s little dog Toto.

Geek Find: ‘Star Wars’ Portraits By Greg Peltz

I’ve spent the majority of the holiday today watching Spike TV’s marathon of all six Star Wars movies, so I have Star Wars on the brain. (I know, I know, why am I watching these movies on TV with commercials — especially since the original trilogy is the Special Editions — when I own the DVDs? It makes no real sense, I understand, but it’s just one of those things — if it’s on TV, I’m compelled to watch).

Anyhow, it reminded me that a week or so ago I saw a bunch of really cool Star Wars character portraits by artist Greg Peltz that I wanted to share with you all. There’s Victorian-era steampunk versions of Boba Fett, C-3PO, and Chewbacca, as well as Civil War-era Darth Vader. Peltz also put up a new Civil War-style portrait yesterday of Luke and Leia called ‘Siblings’.

See all five images here below and be sure to check out Peltz’s blog for more of his work.

Death TroopersStar Wars: Death Troopers
Hardcover
By Joe Schreiber
LucasBooks
Release Date: October 13, 2009

Are you looking for a new adventure in the Star Wars Expanded Universe? Well if you are then you have to pick up Star Wars: Death Troopers. Obviously it is not the ordinary Star Wars story, but that is what makes it so great. All that and you get to add a zombie-like virus to the mix. Be warned though, this isn’t your grandmother’s zombie virus so you will be fairly interested in seeing what is different about these particular zombies.

The story centers around a prison barge called Purge that transports the galaxy’s worst criminals to their final destination. When the ship seems to have broken down, they find that their only refuge and only saving grace is a Star Destroyer that has been found to be empty and drifting in a rarely traveled region of space. Seem odd to you? Well it should because this is where the craziness is going to come to a head and you will see it all unfold from the eyes of a couple of fan favorites and some new characters as they fight to survive the whole ordeal.

Amazon is having a big December Deals Toy Sale where you can get up to 70% off select item.

Worth mentioning here for sure is their sale on Star Wars toys and games. Right now, the Star Wars 3.75″ New Millennium Falcon is on sale for $99.99 (down from $179.99; I saw this at a big-chain toy store this week for $159.99). This replica of the ship that made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs features electronic lights, sounds, phrases, and various moving parts; has light-up headlights, cockpit, and hyperdrive Dejarik table; an area to treat wounded passengers in the medical bay; and comes with 7 projectiles, mini-fighter vehicle, and Han Solo and Chewbacca action figures (and instructions on how to put it all together!).

Another must-have for the Star Wars fan is the Star Wars Interactive R2D2 Astromech Droid Robot for $89.99 (down from $169.99). Just say, “Hey, R2” and this little robot is ready with over 40 voice commands — tell me you’ve never wanted your very own R2 (I have!!!). This little droid moves on his own, has a front beam for light, and an extendable arm that can hold your beverage! He can also go into “Game” mode, where he’s plays games, spins, dances and plays music, and can even guards your room with his sentry alarm.
