More Disney Parks: Holographic R2-D2, D23 Droids

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, April 16, 2015

Shannon came through with two more individually carded action figures.  Holographic R2-D2 is exclusive to Star Wars Weekends in the Florida park, so I'll be relying on you guys to help me out.

For D23 is another Droid with a Sorcerer's cap, and in the interest of speedy coverage we present to you this blurry image so we have something to share immediately.   (How do I get these?)

You may already own an Episode VII action figure - if not, here's how to get it.

The advantages of obsessive completism rarely manifest themselves so clearly.  This morning at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, four new Astromech domes were unveiled for the new movie.  These were said to be for various X-Wings and background elements, but one looked very familiar. 

It turns out that it's because we reviewed something very close to it in 2012!

Stream Star Wars Celebration Live Online This Week

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Why pay for a hotel when you can go to Celebration VII free while you're at work?

StarWars.com updated with a feature explaining that you can watch a number of panels live from your computer.  Or if you're one of the very young and hip, your "phone."   Obviously you're denied the exclusives, the costumes, the lines, and new adventures in what qualifies as food, but you can see some of the fun at home.   (Memo to Comic-Con in San Diego: copy this.)
