“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”

I was checking out The Official Star Wars Blog and starwars.com and found these articles. Enjoy.

OMG, Luke is Sooo Wrong!
We never really noticed how often Luke is way off the mark on more than a few of his assumptions. But now that the crafty fans at YTMND have added big buzzer noises and “wrong!” screams into the dialog, it’s all the more obvious.

Watch for yourselves here:
YTMD - Can Luke get ANYTHING right?



Finding the Quizbook Master
Rusty Miller has been found!

Anyone who was around for the original trilogy back in the '70s and '80s might recall the name Rusty Miller -- you know, that 11-year-old fan prodigy who compiled a list of 425 Star Wars trivia questions for The Jedi Master's Quizbook back in 1982.

Read the full story, including an interview, here.


Star Wars Merch That Never Was
Oh man, we sure wish some of these rejected product ideas pitched by Pepsi back in 1999 had seen the light of day — an AT-AT chair caddy? A Han in Carbonite mini-fridge? Princess Leia headphones? And the best of all, a Jabba the Hutt beanbag chair? The company did end up releasing some pretty cool life-size statues of Jar-Jar, Darth Maul, Yoda, and Watto, but come on, they couldn’t throw in a Jedi Mood Ring?

Let’s hope it’s not too late for some of these inspired ideas to eventually come down the pike. Until then, head on over to actionfigureinsider.com to check them out.
