• Behind the New Sounds of the 'Star Wars' Blu-Ray

      The humming drone of a Jedi's lightsaber. The high-frequency pops of a Stormtrooper's laser blaster. The warbling bleeps and bloops of an R2 unit. All unmistakable sounds from the Star Wars series. In the more than 30 years since A New Hope's 1977 release, these and other iconic sound effects from George Lucas' classic science fiction franchise have transformed into what Ben Burtt, the series' sound designer, calls "audio folklore."





      Most fans will probably take more immediate notice of the newly high-def presentation in the recently released Star Wars Blu-ray set, but most aspects of the classic films have been reapproached and tweaked to take full advantage of modern-day home theater systems. Burtt worked alongside supervising sound editor Matt Wood in bringing the Blu-ray box set together, a process which both men discussed in separate interviews with Rolling Stone.

      Kenner Vintage Figures

      It does look more recent than vintage. That could be a great idea for Hasbro; put a vintage-type version WITH a new one. I think that might renew some

      What's everyone having for lunch today?

      Noticed there was still a container of taco meat, plus a package of tortillas: add in a little cheese and L (as was mentioned above) and you got a burrito.

      The Black Series 6" Wave 4: Anakin, Clone Trooper, Boba Fett, Stormtrooper

      While I agree that Anakin won't be the hottest seller, I do think that the clone will do well with people wanting to buy multiples for displays or customs,
