The Force Awakens is out a week today. Why not have a thread to be total nerds and share shit we love that's Star Wars related?

Actually, this is mostly an excuse to share what is arguably my favorite video ever on YouTube:


And just so we all remember to temper our expectations for this movie, here's a bunch of fan reactions to The Phantom Menace. We all know how that turned out in hindsight, but it's oddly charming to look back at a time when people genuinely thought it was the greatest thing since a Darth Vader toaster:

For those of you who haven't seen this, this is absolutely incredible. From what I understand, it's one guy's project that took over 4 years for him to complete and I totally want it to be a series.

My favourite thing about Star Wars is that Disney made the EU stuff non-canon.

An oldie, but a classic.
It's worth mentioning, this is about as close as you can get to my accent.

I've been enjoying the Star Wars Legends Epic Collection trades that Marvel have been putting out. Granted not everything in there has been fantastic, but there's been some really nice gems in there that I've been pleased to discover for the first time. The Old Republic graphic novel is really, really good.

I'm gonna be spending all of Thursday on a Road Trip to pick up friends who live hours away so we can all see the Movie Together.

Which means we'll be hanging out all of Friday, and most likely continue it onto Saturday too... XD
We turned a movie showing into a 3 day party. XD

I went to Uniqlo clothing store, and had not been there for a while. So I was surprised that so many of their clothes were Star Wars themed.

But I will share a pic of the items I came closest to actually buying :)
