Beautiful SWTOR Matte Paintings

SWTOR Matte Paintings by Nick Hiatt Matte paintings by Nick Hiatt created during the production of the SWTOR cinematic trailers at Blur Studios You know how we love to bring you beautiful things, especially beautiful SWTOR things. Here’s one that we just cannot pass up sharing. These beautiful matte paintings are perfect for the SWTOR fan. While they would be wonderful to have as prints (I’d hang these in my house), you might decide you want to make them your desktop background, as others have done. Even if you just want to admire them for a bit, Blur Studios is awesome and this is the proof.

Dromund Kaas Imperial Citadel on Minecraft

Here’s a gamer who has combined two of my favorite things: Star Wars/SWTOR and Minecraft. Here you will see that Jedimonkey38 built the Dromund Kaas Citadel in Minecraft. See for yourself here: How awesome is that? I have seen some pretty amazing Minecraft builds over the years. My kids are also really into Minecraft and spend hours watching videos and reading about it. My son even bought a Minecraft manual from the school book fair. So as you can see, we’re a family who is not new to the blocky world. That said, I really love to see when people go outside the typical and create something new or unique. Whenever someone combines one game or story world with another, they’re probably going to get some smiles from me as well, as is the case with this. Here you will find a Speeder Transport, Mandalorian Enlave Entrance, Sith Sanctum Entrance,…

Fan Film: Star Wars: Threads of Destiny

Here is a nice fan video to watch on a lazy sunday. 94 years after The Battle of Yavin, the New Republic has been resurrected and democracy once again rules the galaxy.

‘Star Wars: Legends’ Gets a Trailer

““Star Wars: Episode VII” comes out December 18, 2015 and the Star Wars Expanded Universe is shifting into the “Legends” timeline. This means many of the stories we have all known and treasured about Star Wars are not likely to make it into the newest films. This is a new era of Star Wars and some are happier about it than others. However, Big Shiny Robot has something pretty cool for us. It’s the Star Wars Legends trailer from Marc Rienzo. Big Shiny Robot says: And to be honest, this is probably one of the coolest fan cut trailers of EU material I’ve ever seen. It was cobbled together over the last couple of years from many, many different sources. I loved seeing bits of “Wing Commander” and other movies like that in here. Basically, this trailer is what this universe might have looked like on the big screen. It’s…

STAR WARS 80’s High School

What if the Star Wars cast were dropped in an 80s teen movie? Well, it might look something like this cool concept art from Denis Medri of Cesena, Italy. His project, posted to Behance.net, asks “What if Star Wars were set in an 80s high school?” The result is much like you would imagine, only even more awesome. We know that some hardcore fans don’t like any deviation from the original story and we can respect that fully but you still have to think the creative and artistic ability that went into this is pretty amazing. We have a too-cool skate Luke and a bubble-blowing tights-wearing Leia to start us off. And then we have Han Solo & Chewbacca  And then we have some awesome nerd-droids: There’s also Vader,Boba Fett & Troopers: And a personal favorite of mine is Breakfast Wars: And there’s more so check out the link for…

Tales from the Imperial Fleet

Major Brelga shifted uncomfortably. Sith Lords were always unsettling – a fact someone serving the Empire quickly came to terms with – but Lord Veskis made him especially uneasy. “So Major,” hissed the hooded figure. “Do we have a deal?” “… so I slammed the Jedi against the cliff face, then turned and sliced his padawan nearly in half! The soldiers with them wet themselves and ran!” “My dear, you’re so beautiful when the bloodlust rises in you <3” “Did you see the new robes Darth Jiannis was wearing? It looks like she skinned a Varactyl for them.” “Ugh, I know. It’s like all the good fashion designers work for the Republic.”” “Reports say the base was obliterated. Excellent work, hunter! My Lieutenant objected to collaborating with savage aliens. But he was wrong about you and your team!” “Ah yes, Lieutenant Orbos. A real… shame he didn’t survive the battle….

SWTOR Cosplay Comicbook

It’s time for another feature of SWTOR Cosplay swagger! This one is a special treat that has been out there for a while but most of us never even knew about it. It’s short, so take your time appreciating all the work that went into it, from costume design, backdrop, photography, post-production effects, etc, etc. In my opinion this is total genius and something to learn from for all Cosplayers. With that being said … We present you Issue One of Star Wars: The Old Republic – Arandani Comic: First Encounter, by Arandani Studios. But before all that, we flashback to Captain Kadd Aradan doing a drop on Ord Mantell moments right before the ambush. That’s all for now. A very enticing introduction, with blasters, double bladed lightsabers , Cathers, Sith Inquisitors and Scoundrels. What more can you ask for? More issues? Hell yeah! I really hope they make more,…

Holocron Computer Case Mod

I love custom computer cases. I know most everyone thinks they are cool or could think of a custom case they would like to have but I have a real obsession with these. I am addicted to see what people can do with their computer cases and I have seen some of the most amazing cases you can imagine. There are those that are artistic, practical, water cooled, fish tank cases and more. But this one that we came across is one you’re probably going to love as much as me. This is a Holocron computer case mod. It’s really awesome looking and they photo-logged how they did it on Tumblr so you can see the whole 21 day process for yourself. Maxwell explains to Tumblr a little about what they were doing at the start of the project: After this coming weekend, we will have more exciting progress to…
