Star Wars Rebels Premiere To Air On ABC With Special Cameo

pTRUCA1-18642972_alternate1_dt

If you missed the movie premiere of the Star Wars Rebels series titled Spark of Rebellion, you’ll have another chance on Sunday, October 26 (7:00 p.m. ET/PT) on ABC. This time you can watch it with 100% more James Earl Jones and that’s something a lot of shows could use. Dave Filoni told Star Wars.com, “We wanted to do something special for the ABC broadcast. We’ve added a scene which gives audiences insight into the Inquisitor and includes a cameo by Darth Vader voiced by the distinguished actor James Earl Jones.”

I’m always up for more Vader and maybe that’s what Space Aladdin needs to kick it up a notch. It certainly has a lot of room to grow and more potential then anything they’ve done on television before. Vader popping in to force choke someone from time to time is a good start on tying this into the larger story. They certainly aren’t wasting time bringing in the high profile guest stars, are they?

New LEGO Adult Watches, Retractable Pens

LEGO Boba Fett Adult Watch

You know, as watches go, the LEGO ones are clearly geared towards kids what with the buildable strap and ho hum design. Recently, Things From Another World listed some “LEGO Adult Watches” but with no pictures until now. There’s the Boba Fett watch above, which isn’t all that bad to be honest with you. Definitely a step up from any of their previous offerings and might actually appeal to an adult. Might. ‘Cause let’s face it, if LEGO Star Wars watches aren’t the ultimate indicator of your geek status, nothing is. There’s also a Darth Vader watch. A Stormtrooper design is also mentioned, but no listing was found. Price for the watches is $27.99 on pre-order.

LEGO Star Wars Pens

And in other niche market news, have you ever had a minifig in your pocket and wished it was a pen instead? Well wish no more! There is a series of LEGO Star Wars pseudo-minifigs where you can pull off the head and voila! You get a spinal cord retractable pen! The pic is tiny, but it looks like there’s a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader. They all include a stand. I’m going to go out on a limb and say the legs are fixed and unmovaible, much like the minifigure USB drive. Price is $10.39 if you pre-order. That’s one pricey pen….

And if the release date on those products is any indication, the official street date for Star Wars merchandise is February 29th, 2012. I imagine LEGO Star Wars will be released at the same time.

Thanks to CloneEmperor for the tip.

Anthony Daniels Returns To Star Tours

StarWars.com reported yesterday that Anthony Daniels will reprise his role as C-3PO for the new Star Tours 2.0 ride at Disneyland and Disney World theme parks. Set between Episodes III and IV, you can get a sneak peek at the Starspeeder 1000 below.

Yours truly will also be involved with the Star Tours ride as the new pilot! Okay, not exactly but having the same name ought to give me a free press day pass or something no?

Here’s a video clip of what you can expect from the new ride:

Star Tours 2 is set to open sometime in 2011.
