Utini Shout Outs

August 17, 2012 at 1:57 pm | Posted in News, Regular Feature, Utini Shout Outs | Leave a comment

Lightsaber Rattling: Sometimes Star Wars authors will tease fans with a snippet of dialog or puzzling pictures. This week Jason Fry posted a picture of a pile of books and a brief message. Pete over at Lightsaber Rattling dove head first into what this could all mean, and Jason Fry even commented on Pete’s detective work.

Big Pop Fun Podcast: Hosted by Tom Wilson (the actor who played Biff in the Back to the Future movies), Big Pop Fun is a great podcast I’ve been listening to lately. I highly recommend checking out his interviews with Mark Hamill and James Arnold Taylor.

As You Wish Helmet Project: With Star Wars Celebration VI fast approaching, there’s lost of stuff going on including the As You Wish Helmet Project which has some spectacular looking custom Boba Fett and Clone Trooper helmet. Be sure to stop by their Facebook page and take a gander at all the cool projects which range from steampunk to full size Lego mini-figs.

Stephen Stanton: For fans of Where’s Waldo, how about Where’s Wall-e?

IGN: Our last shout out goes to IGN for posting the trailer for Bullet to the Head, a Sylvester Stalone movie based on the graphic novel illustrated by Star Wars comic artist Colin Wilson.
