Star Wars Is Everywhere: Episode XLIX

Posted By Mike on August 17, 2011

A seemingly sunken Millennium Falcon, lots of 501st coverage and a tribute to the Battle of Yavin highlight this 49th edition of Star Wars is Everywhere.




Telegraph.co.uk has a picture from the bottom of the Baltic Sea that sure looks a lot like the Millennium Falcon.




Suvudu.com celebrated Discovery's Shark Week by presenting a list of 10 sea monsters from the Star Wars saga.




Star Wars characters helped ring in Christmas in July by helping to support the Savation Army at Cleveland's SouthPark Mall on July 30th.




The Official SW.com Blog points us over to the RatRodBikes.com where you can check out a sweet custom bike fit for a Stormtrooper.




How about some Boba Fett Ben and Jerry's ice cream?
(Thanks Mike!)




The Thrawn Trilogy received enough votes to land at #88 on NPR's list of the top 100 sci-fi/fantasy books.
(Thanks Dustin!)




Our friends at Star Wars Aficionado Magazine want to spread the word that they now have a Facebook page which you can visit by clicking here.
(Thanks Scott!)




Not only has the AP written an article about the famed Lawrence Noble Yoda statue at Lucasfilm's headquarters, and not only was our very own Jovial Jay Shepard quoted in the article, but apparently he also founded TFN. Thanks Jay!!!

In related news, the Official Starwars.com Blog let's us know that Lawrence Noble has launched his own website.




The 501st made an appearance at Southaven's M.R. Davis Public Library last Thursday for a fun Star Wars back-to-school event. Details at CommercialAppeal.com.




Want to build your own Stormtrooper armor? Andrew Ainsworth and Shepperton Studios show you how through a series of videos according to Wired.com.




Sounds like the children of Brownsville, Texas sure had a good time at the Jedi Training Camp provided by the Brownsville Children's Museum. From BrownsvilleHerald.com:

"Javier Garcia thrust his blue light saber toward his opponent, his brown robe rustling with each movement.

“We made some robes, we made some light sabers,” said Garcia, 9, one of 22 young Jedis practicing with their light sabers during the weeklong Jedi Training at the Children’s Museum of Brownsville. Samantha Garcia, weekend associate, said the museum was doing a “ton of Star Wars activities” this week, and the children were training with their light sabers everyday.

Wednesday afternoon, Walter Vasques was showing the children a few pieces of his collection of Star Wars paraphernalia that he began accumulating in the 1980s.

The children were transfixed by the collection spread across the table: figures of Jar Jar Binks from the first three episodes, or prequels of the Star Wars saga; the wise Yoda; Anakin Skywalker who would later become Darth Vader; Nute Gunray (also from the prequels); and Watto the Toydarian junk dealer who appeared in episodes one and two. There was the ever-familiar R2-D2, the monstrous AT-AT (All-Terrain Armored Transport) and the smaller All-Terrain Scout Transport."

Next up we have more charity from the 501st as the Toms River News recounts good deeds performed by the Northeast Remnant which includes raising reading awareness within Ocean County, New Jersey.




Let's keep the 501st love going by highlighting some more good press, this time from ChicagoTribune.com.




The Official SW.com Blog has shined their spotlight on a couple more winning Star Wars fan films from the 2011 SDCC Star Wars Fan Movie Awards: The Tentacle Trap (Spirit of Fandom Award) and Solo Forever (Best Comedy Award).



And just for fun, here's a touching tribute to the heroes of the Battle of Yavin set to music from the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers.
(Thanks Som!)
