Why Isn’t Luke Skywalker on the Star Wars The Force Awakens Official Poster?showmescifistar-wars-force-awakens-official-poster-691x1024

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 02:36:20 +0000

In perhaps the biggest snub of the new Disney era – the official poster for Star Wars The Force Awakens omits Luke Skywalker. Is this some kind of Sith plot? why on the Maker’s Soul would Disney ever do such a terrible dis-service to Mark Hamill/Luke Skywalker?? WHY DISNEY?

Ok Minority Report isn’t progressing quite as well as we might have hoped, but for now we’re still enjoying the SciFi / future forecasting bits. Last week’s episode had a real great one too with the $500 Obama US Bill.

NO THIS is not an epic piece of fiction but it’s brilliant fun. Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure (Star Wars: Journey to Star Wars: the Force Awakens) is a really great slice/incident/story in the post Episode IV era where we see a Solo in his prime.

Ok so we liked the first episode of Minority Report enough to watch the second episode. Another beautiful looking show, with lots of high-tech wizardry…this time out we noticed a touch screen projection player on a baby stroller (neat!) and a few other small things…including the bracelet from the singles club that does the saliva […]

At long last Star Wars has returned to Marvel as we knew it would when Disney bought Dark Horse. Here at ShowMeSciFi, We’re not particularly thrilled by the move, after all the years we diligently collected Dark Horse and learned its canon. Now that’s all gone. Instead we have this sh*t.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Missing is another piece of the post-Fall puzzle – and a highly enjoyable piece at that. This is the post-Fall new DS9 -yup the same era as the Quark eNovella we recently reviewed – but this is a more serious book. DS9 is still getting its footing back, but […]

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Lust’s Latinum Lost (and Found) isn’t a typical Star Trek story – this is the first we’ve ever read that focuses just on Quark – and it’s the real deal. The Laws of Acquisition are oft quoted, the pursuit of Latinum a primary goal. This would have made a fantastic […]

Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed isn’t a good book, it’s a GREAT Star Trek book. From the first page to the last, this is a well thought out story, with alternate timeline, mirror universe, section 31 and Bashir (after the Fall).

Stormtroopers aren’t the only ones that get a new look in Star Wars The Force Awakens. X-Wing pilots get an updated helmet and flight suit in the new movie. The actual X-Wing looks mostly the same as the classic model, though now we get to see it fight in-atmosphere too.

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars VII, gives fans the first peek at the new look of Stormtroopers.

The first teaser trailer only gives us 88 seconds but it already adds some … color. Troopers started out as all being clones – of bounty hunter Bobba Fett and his pseudo Caucasian skin color. In The Force Awakens our first character glimpse is of a stormtrooper of color.

Troy Denning has written a bunch of really solid Star Wars books in his career, Crucible is not one of them.

We’ve been touch/go fans of the Dawn of the Jedi series since it first debuted as a Dark Horse comic book series. Into the Void is no comic.
