• 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.

      ARCHER on FX (or, possibly, better yet, on DVD!)

      I know. That made me laugh. I'm glad that Mama Archer didn't get it because it would be in character that she'd be clueless on that one.

      I'm waiting for the extended version that's bound to be released later this year. Still need to pick up the extended version of the first Hobbit, too.
