‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Set Photos Show Millennium Falcon, Massive Creature
  |  @   |  

The Star Wars: Episode VII set has been a super secret location, and understandably so. But someone has been busy snapping pictures of the behind the curtain goings on, and TMZ has gotten their hands on the images.

If you’d like to be surprised when the first official images and trailers come along for Episode VII it’s probably best to avoid these. But for everyone else, and especially for those who have been extra skeptical of the movie, the pics are a must-see.

Lucasfilm Possibly Developing Standalone Boba Fett and Young Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Movies
  |  

Yesterday we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm were ramping up their long-term grand plans for Star Wars with the announcement that they would be developing a series of movies set apart from Episode VII and on that would focus on individual characters from the Star Wars universe, including a possible Yoda movie.

Entertainment Weekly today broke an exclusive addendum to that revelation with the news that both Han Solo, the roguish but lovable space smuggler that helped make Harrison Ford a star in the original Star Wars movies, and Boba Fett, the masked intergalactic bounty hunter who had little screen time in the original trilogy but has since become a huge fan favorite character, might also be headlining their own standalone movies.

  |  @   |  

Owning a real Millennium Falcon, the ship piloted by Han Solo in Star Wars, is not an option people have. Because of this, a group of friends who are Star Wars fanatics decided to take the one and only option that does exist: building their own full-size replica of the ship.

Check out some images of their work in progress below!

Mimobot Makes Flash Drives Cool At Toy Fair 2012
  |  

Blank DVDs and CDs are going the way of the dinosaurs in favor of the infinitely reusable and non-OS specific (usually) flash drive. These little devices allow sharing of data with the click of a USB port, and they’re much greener than one time use only discs if you’re into that sort of thing. For the longest time these little devices had all the style of a giant suppository, but that’s just not the case any longer.

Mimobot is a company that’s creating USB flash drives and card readers that allow their owners to show off their geek love while still having a flash drive at the ready. The company had and still has the Star Wars license so last year there were R2D2, Yoda, and C3PO flash drives along with many other classic characters. This year they upped the ante with a Millennium Falcon card reader, as well as new flash drives from DC Comics and Transformers.

The New Zealand Mint is set to offer a very special new set of coins featuring the likes of some of your favorite characters from George Lucas‘s classic Star Wars series.

The first series includes eight 1oz 999 silver coins in two separate sets. The first comes in a Darth Vader helmet case (that even makes the iconic villain’s breathing sound when you open it), and features Vader, Emperor Palpatine, a Stormtrooper, and the Death Star. The second comes in a Millennium Falcon case (which makes the “jump to light speed” sound when opened), and features the dynamic duos of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3PO, and Han Solo and Chewbacca.
