• The World's Largest Lightsaber

      London's skyline was recently turned into a giant Star Wars advert -- as BT Tower was transformed into the world's biggest lightsaber.


      The large-scale sci-fi transformation saw 60 4,500-watt lights -- standing 1.3m high and weighing 124kg -- installed at the top of the iconic tower.

      This sent a bright beam of blue light skywards and made the 189m tall cylindrical building look like the sword wielded by Luke Skywalker in the first Star Wars films.

      It was all part of a special party to launch the Blu-ray versions of Star Wars: The Complete Saga and the event was attended by C3PO himself Anthony Daniels.

        That is so cool. I would have liked to have seen a lighter color for the "hilt" of the "saber" to differentiate it from the beam, but it looks great and is still quite recognizable.

      Weird episode: first half was one of the funniest ones in a long time, but it turned a bit melancholy by the end. I really liked Asner's and Holbrook's

      I have a photo of me with The Cup (in my Penguins gear, next to the Kings' trophy ), but I haven't ever seen a pro all-star game in person before.

      Any credible rumors of 2017 6"?

      I have a feeling this year's SDCC debut for sale figure (like FO Stormie and Jyn the previous years) will be TFA Luke.

      This one kind of got lost in the news shuffle of Snuka and Cernan's recent passing, but is worth mentioning before its completely forgotten about. Dick
