    SWCVI: Where I Know Everybody’s Name

    Here’s my confession, and my no longer secret shame: I am a niche geek, a jack of very few trades. I love Comic-Con because there are about a billion things to see, and because even though it gets insanely crowded, the jammed-up throng is nearly always remarkably cheerful and patient about being stuck somewhere while […]

  • A painting of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, C-3PO, and several TIE fighters.

    SWCVI: Looking Ahead to Day 1 at the Behind the Scenes Stage

    With the release of the Star Wars Celebration VI programming schedule this week on the Celebration VI Mobile App, fans everywhere have begun sketching out their plan of attack for the biggest Star Wars party of the year. Planning my schedule is easy: I’m going to enjoy the show from the Behind the Scenes Stage, […]

    SWCVI: Bounty Hunters, We DO need your scum!

    Hello! I’m James and I’m one half of the brains behind the Bounty Hunt atStar Wars Celebration VI. My friend Dan and I have been organizing photo scavenger hunts and puzzle races for several years now, and we’re bringing all our fiendish fun to Orlando. We think that the Bounty Hunt is great for Star […]

    SWCVI: First Look at Attendee Badge Art

    There are a lot of things that set Star Wars Celebration apart from the slew of other pop culture conventions out there — Stormtooper security guards, life-size TIE Fighters in the hall, droid races — but some are more subtle, like the badges that all attendees and staff wear. Unlike most cons that use the […]

  • Star Wars cosplayers and content creators pose on stairs for a photo.

    San Diego Comic-Con is officially a wrap for 2012!

    That was fast! I usually spend several days at the con, but this year it was a 24-hour turn around. Still, I got a good look at the floor and was fortunate to meet several fans. I caught a couple of our regular clone troopers walking around in Star Trek uniforms on Saturday – even […]

  • People dressed in costumes smiling and posing in front of the camera.

    Project Runway: Star Wars Style at the SDCC Masquerade

    This past Saturday I had the honor and privilege to act as Lucasfilm’s official judge for the “Best Costume(s) from the Star Wars Galaxy” award at San Diego Comic-Con’s annual Masquerade – presented by HBO (I remember this because the whole shebang started with a long True Blood commercial).

    The ties that bind: Why Comic-Con and Lucasfilm are soul mates

    Geek Nation has left the building and San Diego Comic-Con International is but a jumble of memories… or an expensive reality as the boxes of goodies you shipped to yourself start arriving in the next few days. If you’ve only experienced SDCC from afar, it’s more like preparing for combat duty than a normal convention. […]

    The Quotable Clone Wars Panel: Report from San Diego Comic-Con

    My Comic-Con commitments wrapped on Saturday, the biggest day of the event, and I’ve finally had time to collect my thoughts and my notes on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel held this Saturday afternoon. I welcomed to the stage supervising director Dave Filoni and head writer Matt Michnovetz – who were escorted by […]

    Project Cosplay: Millennium Falcon Skirt!

    The Millennium Falcon holds a special place in my heart. It’s an underdog of a ship with a lot of wear and tear, but for me that always made it more fun to root for. And even though Luke Skywalker called it a “piece of junk,” she is surprisingly powerful and fast! Plus, saving Lando […]

    SDCC 2012: What’s Next From Hasbro?
