Guest Post: Star Wars Bootlegs: Quest for the Holiday Collectable

Even when on holiday, any true Star Wars collector doesn’t completely switch off and will always be on the lookout for a new purchase.

In recent years my wife and I have become frequent visitors to Corralejo on Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Prices of official merchandise is very high, possibly 50% higher than the UK for some items, and very hard to come by. Even when a favourable exchange rate is available, it doesn’t always make any purchase viable unless there is a rarity to it.

Anyone who knows the name Neil Livesey will most likely know him best for the always awesome Star Wars Fan Fun Day but you might not know that back in the mid-80's he almost - almost - became the next John Byrne. Check out this submission he made to Marvel UK on 1st October 1985.

Check out the pages here and fingers crossed Neil will release the rest of the strip online soon.

Star Wars Episode VIII: Does Gary Fisher Have A Cameo?
Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 30 Jul 2016 16:13

Could Gary Fisher be the first dog since page 115 of the original 1976 Star Wars novel to venture into the GFFA? It sounds like it's possible. While Luke was thinking of a dog he once owned as the Millennium Falcon blasted its way off Mos Eisley his sister Leia - AKA Carrie Fisher - might have wrangled a role for her poochie pal in a film 40 years later.

According to Carrie's daughter Billie-Lourdes, Gary might have made a canine cameo in the film.

While promoting the second season of Scream Queens at San Diego Comic-Con, Lourd told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that there’s a possibility Gary made it into the film. “He may,” she said, “but in a very subtle way, like in a costume.”

Let's just hope he doesn't have any scenes with Mister Bones or there could be trouble.

Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 29 Jul 2016 23:44

Join Jay Stobie as he looks into the superweapons of the Empire and First Order over at

Superweapons and massive starships, ranging from the Death Star and Starkiller Base to the Executor and the Finalizer, are common sights in the fleets of the Galactic Empire and the First Order. On the surface, these stations and vessels are arsenals of destruction with the capability to lay waste to entire planets and solar systems. Despite their similar potential, each weapon’s construction and the reason for its deployment varied with the political issues and adversaries faced by their creators.

Get this in your diary - Saturday 3rd September 2016 at 8pm at Bishop's Park, Bishop's Avenue, Fulham, SW6 3LA. Your chance to see The Force Awakens in a central London outdoor location, to help usher in the autumn and Force Friday which won't be too far awya by then.

Tickets are £12.00 for adults and £6.00 for kids along with a £2.00 charge for chair hire. We're hoping to be down there for the event so be sure to give us a wave.

We have lovely food and amazing popcorn on site plus there is also a fully stocked bar so you can have a cold pint, but if you’d prefer to bring your own picnic that’s ok with us but you are missing out on burgers from the guy that supplies Harrods.
To find us in the park head towards Craven Cottage football stadium.
At the end of the film the only exit open will be the one onto Bishop's Avenue, ALL the other ones will be locked.
Please bear in mind we’re outdoors and even the warmest days can get a bit chilly at night, so please bring a jumper or something to wrap round your shoulders just in case.
You’ll get an electronic ticket, which you need to either print off or you can show us it on something electronic.
You do need to bring something to sit on, there’s always plenty of room so you can get inventive. Please don’t bring a tent though... it’s just showing off.
Our doors open earlier than the film starts and the film starts when it gets dark.
We are at the mercy of the Mother Nature. The weather man is saying it’s going to be a nice summer, but she can be a cruel mistress, so join the mailing list or follow us on twitter (@popupscreens) and we’ll keep you up to date with what’s going on weather and travel wise.
The closest tube station is Putney Bridge which is on the District Line.

Stay tuned as we will be running a competition next week to win a pair of tickets to the screening.

Cantina Cast: Dear Star Wars Fans: Stop Drinking the Haterade
Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 29 Jul 2016 23:21

Over at The Cantina Cast writer Kat takes a look at a recent convention experience which caused pause for thought on a tricky topic.

In June I had a great time attending Denver Comic Con, with but one slight exception. I attended seventeen panels that weekend, only one of which was Star Wars related (I know it’s kind of shameful for a Star Wars blogger, but I opted in favor of the writing-focused panels over the Star Wars panels). And it was that one Star Wars panel that ended up being the most negative experience I had in all the three days of the con. The panel was titled “Origins of the Force,” and the panel description read thus:

I'm not sure when it first landed or was updated on their site, but the upcoming The Art of Rogue One book is now listed on the Abrams Books website complete with product details and official ISBN number. So this might be news to some readers and not to others, but it's worth a post regardless for this must-get title.

This book is a visual chronicle of the Lucasfilm art department’s creation of new worlds, unforgettable characters, and newly imagined droids, vehicles, and weapons for the first movie in the Star Wars Story series—Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the same format and style as Abrams’ The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the book gives readers unprecedented access to hundreds of concept paintings, sketches, storyboards, matte paintings, and character, costume, and vehicle designs. The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will stand as the definitive guide to the artwork and imagination behind the newest chapter in the Star Wars franchise and will delight Star Wars fans and cineastes for decades to come.

Fantasy Flight Games: Fearless
Reported by Jonathan (Follow on Twitter) on 27 Jul 2016 20:15

Fantasy Flight Games bring us a preview of the Protectorate Starfighter Expansion Pack for Star Wars: X-Wing™ Miniatures Game

From the website:

Fenn Rau's starfighter has no shields. It has just four hull. Clearly, it was meant to dodge firing arcs—not to fly straight at enemy fighters—right? Certainly, that would be the standard thinking, but Fenn Rau has his own take on the matter. And who can argue with him? Not us.
The ninth wave of starship expansions for X-Wing™ is all about experimenting with firing arcs. The ARC-170 and Special Forces TIE fighter both feature auxiliary firing arcs that lead to interesting tactical decisions, and the Shadow Caster introduces a new mobile firing arc, which can rotate and face in different directions from round to round. Still, while all these ships encourage new ways to fly because they incorporate different firing arcs, it can be argued that the final Wave IX ship, the Protectorate Starfighter, is the one that does the most to encourage us to rethink our firing arcs…

Debunked: Young Han Solo And Hayden Christensen Will Not Be Appearing In Rogue One
Reported by Justin (Follow on Twitter) on 27 Jul 2016 11:48

Once we heard the first whispers about the villainous Darth Vader returning to the big screen in Rogue One, rumors began to pop up that placed Hayden Christensen back in the iconic black suit for director Gareth Edwards' standalone film.

And with the official announcement of Alden Ehrenreich being selected as young Han Solo, that also set off rumors of Han possibly making an appearance in Rogue One given the film's proximity in the Star Wars timeline.

We can now put both of these rumors to rest as Gareth Edwards himself has debunked the Han rumor and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has done the same to the Hayden rumor as it pertains to Rogue One.
