There's nothing to say other than OMG! Sandstorm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This footage was all the buzz on the floor of San Diego Comic-Con this year. For those eagerly awaiting the Blu-Ray release, this taste of some of the deleted scenes is just pure OT goodness!>
San Diego Comic-Con once again has proven to give fans a wealth of new information about the upcoming season of the Clone Wars. Dave Filoni spoke at length about the exciting arc of episodes that will launch the season - where fans will see some underwater battle scenes, including Quarren fighting Mon Calamri, Captain Ackbar (woot!), Scubatroopers and more!
To help fans prime the pump as they wait in anticipation, check out the awesome new trailer for season 4 that has landed.
Star Wars Kinect is loads of fun. How do I know? Well, I was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to play a little at this year's SDCC. I'm already hopelessly addicted!
And for those that want to play in style, then you've gotta be all over this tricked out, limited edition Star Wars Kinect bundle that's being offered later this year for $449. It comes with an amazing R2-D2 themed Xbox and C-3PO inspired controller. Also cool, the bundle not only includes "Kinect Star Wars" (of course) but also includes "Kinect Adventures". As if that's not enough, the console will even beep and whistle like R2-D2 when turned on or the drive is opened! Certainly swagalicious!
Our pal Tom Spina dropped us a line to let us know about another amazing Star Wars project he recently worked on. Check out this awesome display he made for the only surviving casting of Jabba the Hutt! According to Tom, "The original puppet was scrapped after filming, but this test casting of the face (and several plastic eye forms) were saved."
To see more detailed pictures and to find out more about this awesome project, visit his website, Tom Spina Designs.
ACME Archives, the official Star Wars fine art licensee, has just released the next print from Steve Thomas in his line of Star Wars travel posters. Titled Rogue Squadron Air Show, this 13" x 19", hand-signed giclee print costs $89 and is limited to only 150 pieces.
Considering how retro-cool and swagalicious this piece is, and based on the sales of the others in the series, it'is a guaranteed sell-out. In fact, ACME just announced the prior piece in the line, Hoth Rebel, just sold out. So make sure to get in order in sooner rather than later if you are interested. Don't say we didn't warn ya!
As E3 2011 has now come and gone, it's clear to see that Star Wars Kinect definitely has grabbed the attention of the gaming universe. Microsoft seems to have taken the best of interactive gaming and brought it to life for Star Wars fans in a way we've all dreamed someone would. I mean, you can finally use The Force and naturally wield a lightsaber in a game! What true Star Wars fan wouldn't want to play that?! But is the Kinect technology up to par? Some reviews from people who played the demo at E3 2011 aren't great. Check out this one on Kotaku for example.
For more extensive coverage of Star Wars Kinect at E3 2011, check out any major entertainment or gaming site/blog (as we unfortunately weren't able to go this year). Here's a couple intro-type articles from Gamespot and Entertainment Weekly to get you started. Also, you might want to watch the video below to really see what it's like to play (despite the video being in French).
