DIY: Building the Death Star Data Tape

Last week for May the 4th, my daughters had a special “Star Wars Day” function for school where they encouraged the kids to dress up as their favorite character.

Click on through to check out a few in-progress images as well as the final outfit.

Revenge of the Sith Tsum Tsum Coming April 4

Disney Store has posted a preview of their next assortment of Star Wars-themed Tsum Tsum plush characters. Available on April 4, the Revenge of the Sith set includes General Grevious, Clone Trooper*, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker**.

*Note the Phase I design for the Clone Trooper and not the proper Phase II

**I also assume that the image take for the graphic above has been horizontally flipped and Anakin’s scar is over the wrong eye.

New Elite Series Figures Coming Soon

Members of the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook are reporting* the discovery for 3 “new” Elite Series figures coming soon to Disney Stores in the UK (and the US). Soon, you be able to add Riot Gear Stormtrooper, Finn with Lightsaber and Squad Leader Stormtrooper to your collection. Also of interest is a slight packaging refresh for the line which looks to universalize the box to cut down the cost of printing, requiring only a sticker to differentiate each character.

Thanks to Corey for First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.
