Disney cast members are handing out Star Wars / Cars themed trading cards at Star Wars Weekends. This card was found by Ethan at Darth’s Mall in Hollywood Studios.
This seemed appropriate given the lack of updates over the past year. Turns out I’ve been working on my own lifesize R2-D2. You can check out my build log at http://r2build.lukejedi.info
I’m hoping to get back to my Luke Jedi focus in the coming year.
As pictures are coming in from Toy Fair 2013, a Jedi Force Luke Jedi has been pictured next to Jabba the Hutt and a slimy C3PO. Thanks to SirStevesGuide for the image.
UPDATE – ALL LukeJedi.info patches have been handed out.
LAST DAY!!!! Today, Sunday 8/26, you can obtain the LukeJedi.info patch at the DCSWCC Booth (#548) from 11am-Noon and from 3pm-4pm. Just ask for Bob who will be wearing either a DCSWCC t-shirt or Luke Jedi t-shirt.
Six members of the Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) have joined forces to create its first ever puzzle patch set, which when assembled represents the shape of the Millennium Falcon. The set is approved by Lucasfilm as an exclusive for Celebration VI and is strictly limited to 300 sets.
The Luke Jedi figure was voted the #1 Best Star Wars Action Figure by the ‘Chive Cast Vintage Pod podcast! The Olympic committee has disqualified Skye from the competition. Thanks Steve!
