Do you really need any more description than that? Fine, here’s some.
Damn, that C-3PO is sexy, ain’t she? Oh, and the video above was probably blocked at your job by the jerks you work for. March into their office and tell them “you can sign my paychecks, but you can’t take away my nude women!” Which I soundly recommend following up with a neck punch.
Every day, from April 3rd 2009 to April 3rd 2010, these guys are posting a new picture of what Stormtroopers do on their days off. Since those poor bastards have nothing to do anymore – no more Empire, no more Death Star, no jobs!
Death Troopers, the uber cool book that blends Star Wars with zombie fiction is now out in stores, and we recently gave you guys a chance to win it as part of our Pauloween Horror Nights month-long event!
So who won?
As it turns out it’s Not Eddie Murphey, who actually goes by the name Z0MBIE on Twitter! Congrats Z0MBIE! I’ll be e-mailing you soon!
In other Death Troopers news, the official Star Wars site had an interview with author Joe Schreiber, where he announced another Death Troopers novel, already completed!
The way you wrote Death Troopers lends itself to having one heck of a horrifying prequel. Any chance fans will be getting the tale of what happened on the Star Destroyer before the prison barge showed up?
Actually, I just finished the next book and sent it to Shelly Shapiro. It’s a prequel that deals with the virus and where it came from.
In this week’s new episode of Star Wars: Clone Wars, Senator Amidala goes undercover to seduce an old flame who may in fact be supporting the separatist movement. Of course, this doesn’t sit well with Anakin, who has just returned home from time away in battle and looks to spend some quality time with the ol’ wife.
Continuing with the darker, more adult themes of the second season, we definitely get a less child-friendly tale of jealousy and intrigue in this week’s episode, as Anakin definitely reacts like you would expect Anakin to do, and Padme gets all dolled up to seduce this guy, who obviously still has feelings for her.
There are some odd choices on costumes for Padme, but I think that keeps in feel with the prequel movies, in which George Lucas had Natalie Portman wear some really crazy outfits. I’d never expect a Senator to wear something that so clearly shows her midriff, but, ya know, this is a galaxy far, far away.
Ultimately, while not quite as action-packed as the first three episodes of the season, this episode was well written, and had some interesting characterization. It could have very easily been ruined with a Jar-Jar appearance, but we were thanfully spared. A solid episode all around.

What’s Death Troopers? It’s a horror novel set in the Star Wars universe! Yes, the undead have infested the galaxy far, far away and they’re munching on a pack of clone troopers!
When the Imperial prison barge Purge–temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy’s most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves–breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back–bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.
And death is only the beginning.
The Purge’s half-dozen survivors–two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers, and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board–will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn’t really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable, and unspeakably hungry.

Simply put, this season’s premiere of Clone Wars kicked all kinds of @$$. I really enjoyed the Clone Wars animated movie that was released in theaters prior to the movie, even if it came with a number of flaws. However, season one of the show was hit or miss – some episodes were just as good, if not better, than the original movie, while others were a real bore.
One of the main issues I had with the first season was its disjointed nature – I’d say 80% of the season were unrelated episodes that could be watched in any oreder. Though that makes it easy to jump in at any time, it also took away some of the impact of some of the storylines. It’s great to have an episode focused on Yoda, or any of the other jedis. But the unifying theme this year of the Rise of the Bounty Hunters has already given us more intense, exciting episodes with darker tones, and a great villain. Read the rest of this entry »
