EP7: DP Named, Shot on 35mm Film - Not Digital

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 22, 2013

While the director is all about a film's vision, the Director of Photography is a role that helps provide the film's personality.  Cameras, film stock, angles, and a keen eye do wonders for the look of a movie and for our next Star Wars film, for Episode VII Lucasfilm and J.J.

Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection Amazon Slave I Fix - Just Screw It

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 13, 2013

After almost a year of waiting since it was teased at Celebration VI in Orlando last year, we finally started to get our Amazon exclusive The Vintage Collection jumbo Slave I vehicle. It's 20-inches long, almost 50% bigger than the previous releases of Boba's vehicle, and has more features than ever. One of these features is a rotating wings and a gravity-centered pilot's station inside the cockpit, and in the 2010 The Clone Wars Rise of Boba Fett Battle Pack it worked great. This new version needs some work - a bad spring prevents things from locking properly. Want to fix it? Go get a Phillips head screwdriver, an old clicky pen, and read on.

Review + Video: Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Darth Maul Action Figure

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, August 10, 2013

With The Black Series' 6-inch action figure line, Hasbro is focusing on adult and collector fan favorites which means Darth Maul is a sure thing. Traditionally the one character from the first prequel that everybody agrees is worth owning, Hasbro did a great job on this figure and it's probably the best-looking action figure of Mr. Maul we'll ever see.
