The soon to be released Star Wars Wave 1 set includes big-headed version of Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Rey, Kylo Ren, and Princess Leia. Each figure has three different expressions, which are revealed when you push down on the tops of their heads. Sometimes they’re happy, sometimes they’re sad, and other times, they’re making their helmet bend to their whim.

The figures measure 4″ tall and sell for $10.99 each, or $59.99 for the complete set. They’re available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth now, and are expected to ship later this month.

What Order Should You Watch the Star Wars Films to Prepare for the Last Jedi?

Luke on TatooineLuke on Tatooine

As Star Wars: The Last Jedi approaches to make Christmas a bit more fun, it’s time to start the binge of watching all the Star Wars films that came before to get in the right mood. However, the question of ‘in what order to watch’ becomes more difficult to answer every year.

By Order of Release

A New Hope ?? The Empire Strikes Back ?? Return of the Jedi ?? The Phantom Menace ?? Attack of the Clones ?? Revenge of the Sith ?? The Force Awakens ?? Rogue One

Why does it make sense? That’s how the films were released, starting in 1977, so why not do it according to the studios? It’s right visually, because you go from the old-school days of the original trilogy to the more modern, sleeker look of the prequels, followed by Rogue One and Episode VII, which are from this decade, hence look very different.

The only problem here is Rogue One. It refers to a lot of things in A New Hope, and seeing it so detached from the film that picks up right where it ends might be a bit weird.

In-Universe Timeline

The Phantom Menace ?? Attack of the Clones ?? Revenge of the Sith ?? Rogue One ?? A New Hope ?? The Empire Strikes Back ?? Return of the Jedi ?? The Force Awakens

Why does it make sense? From a storytelling point of view, it shows the progress of the Skywalker saga, with the “interruption” of the Anthology episode, from the beginning of a young Anakin, to the days of the new characters of Rey and Finn as well as Kylo, through Luke’s heroics alongside Leia and Han Solo.

The issue here is that it feels weird starting with movies from the 21st century more or less and in the middle seeing movies made in the late 70’s and 80’s, which as magical as they are, do have a silly quality to them in terms of visuals.

The “Storytelling” Order

Rogue One ?? A New Hope ?? The Empire Strikes Back ?? The Phantom Menace ?? Attack of the Clones ?? Revenge of the Sith ?? Return of the Jedi ?? The Force Awakens

Why? There’s something to be said about going back and forth in time. The story begins with plenty of action, and then, before the climax of ROTJ, we see the story of how Darth Vader came to be, and the fall of the Jedi Order. It gives a happy ending, which isn’t taken away by Episode VII, which is just the first part of a trilogy, but has an optimistic feel at its end.

Skipping the Phantom Menace or the Prequels Altogether (Machete Order)

If you hate the prequels, this might be how you’ll do it. It does feel that since Disney took over things, they’re trying as hard as possible to erase the legacy of episodes 1-2-3, which are probably receiving more hate over the years than they deserve. Some people simply skip the most Jar-Jar heavy film, the Phantom Menace.

The suggested order here: Rogue One ?? A New Hope ?? Empire ?? Return of the Jedi ?? The Force Awakens.

It’s also shorter.

Get Watching

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Episode VIII) comes out on December 15. You can get Episodes I-VI in one collection, while The Force Awakens and Rogue One come separately.

Watch Adorable Daisy Ridley Give An Interview While Building A Lego Millennium Falcon  

While we wait for The Last Jedi to drop, Disney seems to be doing a whole lot of promotion for the film. In this interview by Elle Magazine, Daisy Ridley, who obviously plays Rey in the new trilogy, answers questions about herself and her co-stars all while building a Lego version of the  Millennium Falcon.

Now to be fair, it’s not like she’s building the 7,500 piece Millennium Falcon. That would probably make this interview longer than watching all three trilogies, aka, the Trilogies Trilogy.

Hit the jump for the short interview.

Pack It Up, They Win: Family Puts Up Incredible Millennium Falcon Holiday Decoration

Sick of the same old Santa Claus roof display? Why not be a little more like Colby Powell and his family. They decided to switch it up and put up the ultimate Christmas decoration for the ultimate Christmas movie, Star Wars.

The 29 foot long creation is an incredible piece made out of lumber, lots of PVC pipe, and an old parachute that brings the star ship to life-size reality (not even close to life-size). The whole creation ended up weighing around 700 pounds, which ended up requiring the family to rent a crane to get it on the roof.

Make Magazine has all the details of the decoration’s construction and it’s very impressive. Of course, you’d have to wonder how they’re going to get it down. Personally, I’d just throw rocks at it until it comes crashing down. But then again, if that’s on my house, it’s never coming down.

Gentle Giant Darth Vader Emperor’s Wrath 1/6 Scale Bust: Proof that Anakin Skywalker Has Ribs

Gentle Giant wants to illuminate your toy shelf with the light from a father’s loving heart. And a Sith Lord’s Force Lightning.

The Darth Vader Emperor’s Wrath mini-bust immortalizes the Star Wars villain’s redeeming moment from Return of the Jedi. Anakin showed his human side figuratively and literally by shielding Luke from Darth Sidious’ lethal attack. To mimic the tragic scene, the 7″ tall bust lights up and is cast from translucent resin.

You can pre-order the bust from BigBadToyStore for $117 (USD).

You Can Now Buy Star Wars IV’s Opening Crawl As A Floor Runner

IT IS A PERIOD OF CIVIL WAR…and so on.

If you’re the type of person whose man-cave is already decked out wall-to-wall in sci-fi movie posters, and shelves storing your valued collectibles, than maybe it’s time to work on that bare wood floor. Think about all that valuable space that’s just sitting there, not yet geekified.

Well, you can kiss your worries away with the Star Wars: Title Crawl Floor Runner. It’s like any other floor runner, but this one will let everyone know where you stand on the issue of “Who shot first?”.  Its comes in at 26″ wide x 77″ long, is made from Polyester Pile.

It’s available for $40 from ThinkGeek, and personally, I think it would look really cool in anyone’s collection of Star Wars memorabilia.
