When I entered the lobby of our movie theater after watching the funny (yet disgusting at times) Zohan movie, I caught a glimpse of this trailer. At first, I thought it was a cartoony parody of starwars (perhaps a joke in that Panda movie, all I saw was Yoda). This could not be serious, the animation looked like something straight out of the Incredibles. After some investigation I discovered it was totally cereal. It is a trailer for a 90 minute long preview of a cartoon network series. Who would pay to go to the movies to watch a 90 minute preview?! This is the description of the youtube video:The 90-minute premiere episode of the CGI animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will have a limited release in U.S. cinemas starting August 15th.Not only will this be the first 3-D animated movie for the highly-successful saga, but this will also be the first Star Wars movie not released through Twentieth Century Fox. Fox released all six Star Wars movies, plus the original microseries The Clone Wars on home video.But Warner Bros. and Turner Broadcasting will release Star Wars: The Clone Wars this time. The principle reason is that Turner's and W.B.'s subsidiary, The Cartoon Network, managed to snag the rights to the series from creator George Lucas.Star Wars: The Clone Wars on The Cartoon NetworkThe new series will premiere this fall on The Cartoon Network, later airing on TNT."I felt there were a lot more Star Wars stories left to tell," said George Lucas in the press release for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. "I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward.""Nothing like this has ever been produced for television," said Stuart Snyder, President/COO Turner Animation,Young Adults & Kids Media. "For 30 years, Star Wars has shown that it appeals to a huge breadth of fans. Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network will be appointment television for everyone in the family. We're thrilled to be working with Lucasfilm again and very excited to be playing a role in bringing this remarkable adventure to viewers."The Star Wars we all know and love has been reduced to a cheap cartoon, made with the sole purpose of trying to squeeze as much money out of the name as possible. Star Wars looks like a cheap joke now, it's just sad, really.

This is it, the most durable knex lightsaber ever imagined. Each piece doubles up the next creating a blade that will not bend nor break, even with high speed collision. The hilt (figure 2) is also quite detailed considering this is made with knex. The only con to this is that the blade doesn't retract. If you like what you see then tell me. I will make it an instructable if asked.

OK, so when Anakin meets back up with Padme, he's been gone for ~1 year, right? Problem. Padme is pregnant, but hasn't delivered yet. Logically, that means that Anakin is not actually the father. Right so far? So who is Luke's real father? Some random guy? If we believe that the Force is a power that everyone has that must be cultivated, his father can be pretty much anyone. If we believe the medichlorion count interpretation of the Force, however, he would have to have a powerful Jedi as a father. Yoda has been Padme's protector, right? I don't think I'll follow this logic any further.

Star Wars Uncut used the power of thousands of fans to recreate the original Star Wars, 15 seconds at a time. All of the clips have been gathered together at the website, but the soundtrack is being held up by legal issues. Still, that didn't stop the creator, Casey Pugh, from winning an Emmy for it. An Emmy! It hasn't aired, but since it was made for broadcast it was considered eligible. Congratulations to Pugh and all the folks who contributed! Star Wars Uncut — Emmy Winner

What if one movie intro was reimagined in the style of another artist? In this case it's the style of the late great Saul Bass who did many amazing title sequences like Vertigo or The Man with the Golden Arm.This is cooler than Episodes I, II, and III combined.via Drawn! And then there's the deluxe remix version as well.

We are planning to do several models from Star Wars as Halloween Costumes. I have a papercraft model of an AT-ST, Darth Vaders Tie Fighter, and an Xwing. And potentially a millenium Falcon. These are currently 1/16" models. Our plan is to scale them up to about 6 feet to use as a pattern then put them over cardboard or corrugated board. What is the best/cheapest way to achieve this? I have them in a locked .pbo file and in pdf
Question by jhendershott | last reply
I found some scrap brass lying around and wanted to make something steampunk. The only metal I had lying around was brass. I found a 6 in. shaft that was just begging to be a lightsaber. I attached a male coupling to one end the shaft, and a female coupling to the other end. It sort of has a steampunk vibe to it. Right now the only material being used is brass and I have not permanently attached anything. I looked at a bunch of lightsaber tutorials for ideas but I want to keep the steampunk aesthetic. Do you think this is even a good idea?

Hello, I occasionally make simple props for a guy with an events company. He is the most unorganised man that I have ever met but manages to pull it all together in the end and I love the chaos of working with him. This time he wants a Landspeeder; he is going to buy an electric car of some sort and we will strip it and build on it. At first I thought that he wanted a faithful replica and showed him this; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ij4l2l1LsmI It was the only useful thing that I could find on the internet and shows a replica that took a professional six weeks using fibre glass. He agrees that we will not manage that in the timespan and that the measurements will depend on the car that he has not bought yet. I know that he will just turn up and say " we have a weekend to do this; any ideas ? " It's the nacelles that I am interested in; as a quick build, I think three plywood discs, wooden strut supports and a metal skin, as shown; and then use that shape as a base Any better ideas or better still, is there anything out there in the world that could be appropriated; like a plastic IKEA planter for example ? Thanks FOH He also wants a hover motor bike in the same weekend.

OK, Ill admit it, I'm a nerd. I'm a Star Wars fan, and I got a new den that I want to geek out. I have a museum-quality X-wing fighter that I want to display on a counter top (&&&). The piece has a display base, and a acrylic post that the model sits on - and through which three wires go up into the model and illuminates the outer engines, and numerous cockpit fiber-optic display bits. It is uber-cool to look at in the dark. 8-) But I want to fab a custom display base that ROTATES so the model does a slow 360 revolution over, say, a minute or so. But I also want to KEEP the lights. So, my puzzle is this.. How can I fab POWER RINGS, so that my model can display its lights as it revolves? -Or- Is there any way I can hack some kind of cheapo commercial wireless power conduction thing, so that I dont really NEED hard wires at all. I can rig some rechargeable battery pack onto the rotating display base, and something that transmits the power on the table-top base (that doesnt rotate). To be clear, the motor that does the rotation OF the base I can wire directly to the wall, But for the LEDs built into the model, I figure I need maybe 40mW of DC power that I want transferred to the batteries on the top to juice the model while turned on. I get this idea from my Wii wireless controller recharger. I only have to put the controllers onto a special plate plugged in to the wall when not being used, and they recharge. With this, SOMEHOW, power is getting to the batteries in the charger *without* being directly wired to the charging adapter. Anyway, since everyone on this site is a genius, I know the can give me an idea or two.

This is just too cute. The video is of a 3 year old little girl explaining Star Wars very entertainingly. She mentions "a garage sale, but with robots" and explains that "the shiny guy always worries". Oh, and she warns not to mess with Darth Vader - he'll get ya! As she says, it's an exciting movie.I must admit to having never seen any Star Wars (so I can't vouch for its accuracy) - but hey, after watching this video, I don't need to! :D

I like how this particular model retracts all the way into the hilt, but the blade is very short, and in conjunction with my stature it seems even shorter. Holding the toy up to the light I can see that there is a lot of plastic that is behind the other pieces. Is there a way to utilize this and make the blade longer?

i had a thought for making a light saber the other day. if you took a florescent tube light and put it in a tight fiting transparent tube for stregnth and added a handle on one side with a this copper wire runing to the other end then you could make a light saber. no leds just a florecent tubelight. it would glow like a real one and could be wrapped in colored cellophane to produce different colors. it is a totally workable idea and a good one. only problem is that it won't shrink but it still would be pretty cool. the handle could house the tube driver circuit and the batters with a small switch for lighting it up.

This is how to make the magic blakes seven teleport bracelet!Ingredients:one cardboard roll, such as a poster or postal cylinder or the cardboard roll from inside a roll of packing tape; diameter 8.5cm, width 4cm (cut to this width if need be, using a saw or knife)cardboard, thick enough to be sturdy, thin enough to be flexiblethin cork (optional)plain paperglueblack or dark brown foam rubber (optional)silver tape width 1.5cm OR aluminuim foil cut or folded to width 1.5cmAntique Gold or metallic brown paintgrey paint OR a round grey button 2cm diameter OR grey tapered paint OR pink paint OR red paint + pearl nailpolishbrown packing tape or beige paintclear or red contact (optional)Visual Reference:Refer to the Liberator Teleport Bracelet diagram in the Horizon Technical Manual.Instructions:Cut your roll to the right width if need be. If the roll is too thin and flimsy, stick a layer of cardboard over it. Cover the rough edges with paper.Cut five strips of cardboard, one 15x3cm, one 9x3cm, one 1.3x3cm, and two 2.5x1cm (measurements will vary depending on the precise size of the cardboard roll). If the cardboard is thin, cut twice as many strips. If you are using thin cork, cut one strip each from the cork also.Stick the strips onto the roll, making sure they evenly positioned in the center. Check the diagram for where to stick them: the two long strips should be next to each other with a small gap representing where the hinge of the bracelet would go if it had a hinge. The small 1.3x3cm strip goes in the larger gap between the long strips - this is where the red button will go. If using cork, stick the cork down first, and the cardboard on top.When all the glue is dry, paint the bracelet with antique gold or metallic brown enamel paint. Do more than one coat if you think that will look better. Wait for the paint to dry.The red receive-button is made from the two smallest strips of cardboard stuck together, covered with white paper, painted red, and covered with contact to make it shiny. Another way of doing this is painting it red, and then painting it with white-pearl nailpoilish to get that glowing pink-red effect. Glue this as indicated in the diagram.The grey transmit-part is made either from cutting a circle of paper or thin card (1.5-2cm diameter) and painting it grey, or by using a grey round button and cutting off the shaft so that it will stick on flat. Stick this on as indicated in the diagram.Cut out silver tape or foil and stick on the bracelet as indicated in the diagram. Cut out (very cleverly) pieces of brown packing tape in the shapes of the alien characters that decorate the rest of the bracelet and stick them on, or else paint them on with beige paint. You may wish to paint the whole bracelet with clear enamel to protect it.Optionally add a lining with foam rubber, to aid the bracelet in not falling off when you wear it.NOTES: Cardboard rolls: the roll from inside a large roll of packing tape comes closest to the right size. A large postal cylinder is too large and a small one is too small. A Pringles packet is too small, but may be easier to obtain. A Pringles packet is easier to cut but is also flimsier; it is recommended to add bulk by sticking on more cardboard to thicken it up.Cardboard: most cardboard you can buy will probably be too thin. The backs of note-pads may provide thicker stuff. The disadvantage of thicker cardboard is that it will not bend as easily, and the cardboard used here must bend. An alternative if available could be thin cork (a few millimetres thick); this will bend fairly easily and add the bulk you need. But only bother if you happen to have some (maybe left over from someone's redecorating or the like). I used it for mine, it worked beautifully.The red button: building this up from strips of cardboard is fairly tedious, and if you can think of a better way, do that.I know Michael Keating!He Played Vila.
