NEW LEGO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI IMAGES SHOW MINIFIGS, INCLUDING FINN!

Three new images of LEGO Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi show minifigs of three characters, giving us our first look at what Finn will look like as a LEGO the second time around. SWTOR CREDITS  As some of you already know, we got a closer look at BB-9E not that long ago from r/LEGOLeaks.
More recently, three more images showing off the minifigs for The Last Jedi‘s new characters made their way online. One is a generic First Order officer (alongside a slightly clearer look at BB-9E), but the more interesting images that leaked are the ones of Snoke and Finn. SWTOR CREDITS 
Finn, as usual, is out of breath. (I’m guessing that he comes with a second face if you flip his head around.) Snoke, in the meantime, looks a lot better as a minifig than I initially thought he would. The design here is a significant improvement over the minifig design they had for the character in the LEGO Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens game (which, up until now, was the only place you could see Sno…

5 HIGHLIGHTS FROM LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA’S LEGO STAR WARS DAYS 2017

With Star Wars Celebration this past April, and the 40th anniversary celebrations of A New Hope in May, some might think the Star Wars party has wrapped up — but LEGOLAND California kept the celebration going into June with their annual LEGO Star Wars Days. This weekend festival of the Force brought out tons of fans to the theme park in Carlsbad over June 3 and 4, 2017, with a whole Star Destroyer-load of fun events.   SWTOR CREDITS

The area surrounding LEGO Star Wars Miniland turned into a festive hive of fun and activity with costume, trivia, and speed building contests, scavenger hunts and droid hunts, costumed-character meet and greets, as well as a display area of fan-made LEGO models and artwork. But the Star Wars party didn’t stop in Miniland — in addition to more costumed-character photo ops in the entry plaza, including a Death Star corridor backdrop, the Show Place Theater showed LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, and on Saturday, held Q&A sessions after each episode with the…

WHAT IS THE EMPIRE’S GREATEST MOMENT?

One of the great things about Star Wars is that it inspires endless debates and opinions on a wide array of topics. Best bounty hunter? Most powerful Jedi? Does Salacious Crumb have the best haircut in the saga? In that spirit, StarWars.com presents From a Certain Point of View: a series of point-counterpoints on some of the biggest — and most fun — Star Wars issues. In this installment, two StarWars.com writers discuss which single moment was the Empire’s finest.  SWTOR CREDITS

The destruction of Jedha City is the Empire’s greatest moment, says Justin.
“Power! Unlimited power!” It’s not pride. It’s a promise. Palpatine’s declaration to Mace Windu as he pummels the Jedi Master with Force lightning is a preview to his former “colleague” of the galaxy that is to come under his enlightened rule. A galaxy in which no challenge is too great, no decision is questioned, and no force opposes his will.
And make no mistake, the Empire is Palpatine’s will. Its capabilities are the personificati…

SWTOR: Central Story Line

Kind time of the day, ladies and gentlemen, fans of the online project Star Wars: The Old Republic. I want to say a few words about the central story line in SW:TOR. SWTOR CREDITS


The central storyline is tied to the hero's class. From the very beginning and up to the final fiftieth level, this story draws the hero behind him. But the whole dramatic art in the form of "string - culmination - the denouement" do not wait. The situation in the galaxy is heating up, Republicans with the Imperials are approaching the war, but before the finals are still very far away. Regular updates open up new horizons for us. So, there is no limits for the story exploration, and it is really cool! SWTOR CREDITS

CREATURE FEATURE: 5 TRUTHS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT BOR GULLET

Image
Creature Feature explores the ins and outs of monsters and beasts in the Star Wars universe.
“Bor Gullet will know the truth.”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first Star Wars standalone, but it continued the grand tradition of introducing different and imaginative creatures to the universe. I’m talking about Bor Gullet. Saw Gerrera kept the octopus-like blob on hand for interrogations. If you’re an extremist like Saw, a creature such as Bor Gullet is ideal for keeping paranoia at bay. Why wonder whether someone’s being honest when you can take a trip inside that person’s mind instead?  SWTOR CREDITS
Saw explained Bor Gullet can feel thoughts; he told Bodhi, “No lie is safe.” Of course, gaining information comes at a price: the person who finds him/herself in the Bor Gullet’s grasp is likely to lose his mind. It’s risky, and I don’t know about you, but I didn’t get the impression Saw used Bor Gullet sparingly. We haven’t learned a ton about the creature yet, but here are five fact…

Non-linearity of tasks in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Good evening, dear fans of the SW:TOR project. And greetings to a new members of our interests!
Let’s take a look at one important thing - story-line. SWTOR CREDITS Declared non-linearity of tasks also causes wide open eyes. Once again we repeat - this was not before! In most side quests, your choice will affect the outcome of the quest. The character, depending on his actions, accumulates points of "karma" - light or dark side. The hero's outlook is no longer a fiction, but a concrete statistical magnitude. SWTOR CREDITS

   With the consequences of both appearance and available equipment. In SWTOR, in order to gain access to some items, you must first earn the specified number of points of light or darkness. The difference between them is taken into account. For example, if you have 1,500 darkness points and 1000 light points, you can not wear light or dark equipment that starts at 1000 points, because in total you have only five hundred dark points.
So, we had just a sho…
