OK partly to lead up to the NEXT blog post I’m making which is from an even OLDER era and again to clean up open tabs on my phone browser of cool stuff I wanted to post … here comes our first MEGA POST on gorbs.net. Basically its a BUNCH of Star Wars stuff I am not bothering to split up … enjoy 🙂
First off, props to the site This Sort of Thing, a blog by the author of “A Long Time Ago” … I’m sure a lot of the links I have accumulated started from his twitter feed. I actually purchased his book but I admit haven’t finished reading it yet … shame on me I know! Anyway, in addition to his own bit of goodness there, I invite you to check out some of the following …
If you are interested in photos of the old school Star Wars figures, you could meander over to Yet Another Star Wars Blog (aka YASWB) and check out some nice mint in package reminders of yesteryear. But if you REALLY want to let your nerd self go, watch some people PLAYING with their toys and check out Star Wars Figures Doing What They Do Best and watch some creative photos of the figures. There is a lot of replicas of some scenes from the movies using the figures and some creative lighting choices.
Ever wish for a Ringling Brothers or Disney on Ice style Star Wars live show? Well the Feld group that RUNS those stuff sure did … check out this story on a grand production I’m sure none of my readers ever saw of the George Lucas Super Live Adventure and wish you were a kid again … in Japan … in the 90s. Wish hard.
Need to do some geek shopping? Well have I found some useless stuff for you! If anyone you know ever wanted an adult onesie they could dress up as R2/D2 or Boba Fett then they are in luck!
Finally … if you are a fan of R2, you are not alone. Check out this /Film post about cameos the little guy has made in Star Trek and other movies over the years.
Now REALLY finally … this isn’t JUST Star Wars but its included so I’ll lump it in … over @ Kotaku you can see a scale representation of (pretty much) EVERY Sci-Fi Starship … Ever! There are some seriously large ships out there!
Whew … ok thats all … for NOW!
