• Giant 12-Foot-Tall LEGO Santa

      Brick by brick, visitors to San Francisco's Union Square are taking part in a fantastically geeky holiday treat: helping to build a 12-foot-tall, 10-foot-wide Santa Yoda.
      The event, which takes place this weekend, is part of a Lucasfilm and Lego promotion for the launch of www.legosantayoda.com, a Web site that will soon let you send Star Wars-themed holiday greeting cards. For each virtual greeting shared, Lego will donate one new Lego toy to the United States Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program, up to 1 million toys.

      The public is invited to come out and help build from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT, Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to get there this weekend, though, if you want to ogle Yoda. When the jolly Jedi is completed Sunday evening, he'll promptly be dismantled.

      A team of Lego Master Builders is on hand to help assemble the effigy of the Jedi master, which will eventually contain about 250,000 bricks.

      I'm not sure if it occurred to me before, but last night I realized how similar the the phrase is to Brennan's "I don't know what that means."

      Just as the credits were to go, I wondered if there'd be a voice-over that said "Oh, THAT'S what that means!"

      I predict another

      Well, I've pointed at the screen while guy says, "What's that mean?" for the last time.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      Or maybe we'll find out that Woody Harrelson was the first

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      The week before, I was in an X-Wing Miniatures tournament at a local game store. There were ten competitors. I won one of my four games, but the win

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.

      Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.
