LEGO and Star Wars proved they were a winning combination when they teamed up in 2005 for Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, and the two properties have made a perfect marriage of fun every since.
Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles is a DVD collection of four 22-minute episodes of the Lego Star Wars television series that aired on Disney XD in 2014 in what is actually the second season. While the first season (collected as Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles) was set during the Prequel era, these new episodes take place mostly during the Original Trilogy years and feature Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia, as well as the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and of course Yoda. But, there’s many more familiar faces appearing as animated LEGO versions of their big-screen selves in this round of tales.
With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens still far, far away (December 18, 2015), there are a few ways to get your Star Wars fix; however, this little holiday item may just shine the brightest of all.
This 12-inch Star Wars Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper by Kurt Adler has been tested and approved. It all started with a Geeks of Doom Holiday Gift Guide. These are not just for our readers, folks. My interest was immediately piqued when I stumbled upon this Christmas Tree Topper on Amazon. And when I added it on a whim to my Amazon wishlist, I had no idea that this little piece of Christmas magic would change my life.
I was lucky enough to receive this topper in the mail as a Christmas gift, and when I opened the box, I was stunned. There is no other way to put it (okay, I have a few more ways). This is Yoda as you have never seen him before. His beautiful, handpainted face is almost as impressive as his bright green, shining lightsaber. My living room has changed from a cute decorated room to a magical land of wonder and amusement where the Force is extremely strong (I may be exaggerating a little bit). But really, when I beheld this Yoda at the top of my Christmas tree, my jaw dropped.
We Star Wars aficionados grab onto anything related to this expansive universe whenever possible. Since Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, more and more items involving Star Wars have begun popping up online. Disney Store has been leading the way in offering an assortment of merchandise that will make you want to exhibit your fervor even further.
Here are 10 of my picks as must-have Star Wars products for not only you, but also potentially members of your Star Wars family.
Today, TeeFury is doing one of their special “Twofury” deals with two shirts for $11 each, both of which are inspired by Star Wars in honor May The 4th – Star Wars Day: “Master the Force” by joebot (at left), which features metallic ink, and “Yodhisattva” by John Sumrow (at right).
The sale began at Teefury today, Sunday, May 4, 2014, at midnight EST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.
This has been a week of Star Wars rumors as multiple stories have lit the ‘net on fire in relation to the standalone movies Disney plans to make apart from the numbered sequels.
It began with whispers of a possible standalone movie focusing on the popular character Yoda. Disney CEO Bob Iger then confirmed that they would be making standalone movies based on various Star Wars characters, with none being named specifically. Finally came word of potential movies following a both Boba Fett and a younger Han Solo.
Now Disney is taking a big step back and wants said ‘net to take a nice deep breath while they clarify a bit on what’s really going on.
