AT-AT Computer Case Mod

Check out this amazing PC Case mod in the shape of an Imperial Walker.  It boasts an Intel Core i7-2600K CPU, 8 gigs of RAM (come on, boost that to 32) a Sapphire 6870 video card and some glowing red cold cathodes all nestled within an Star Wars AT-AT Walker. Sick right?

Interview With Erik Sharkey, Director Of Drew Struzan The Man Behind The Poster

Interview With Erik Sharkey If you are a fan of Steven Spielberg or George Lucas then you no doubt know the works of Drew Struzan. The man who brought us unforgettable movie posters such as the Indiana Jones movies, the Back To The Future Trilogy and the Star Wars prequels to name but a few. Movie posters that are now en grained in the memories of fans throughout the years. If there was any man in the movie industry that deserves a documentary made about him its Drew Struzan. Erik Sharkey is doing just that, a documentary called Drew: The Man Behind The Poster. The documentary will feature interviews with Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Michael J. Fox, Guillermo del Toro, Frank Darabont and the man himself Drew Struzan. Now if that's not a documentary worth watching I don't know what is.

I asked Erik if he would answer a few questions for The Bearded Trio and he very kindly agreed.

Rob Wainfur: Lets start with an obvious question. What is your favourite mo…

Did Ben Kenobi Smoke In Star Wars?

I need a question answered.  My childhood memory of Star Wars is telling me that Ben Kenobi in the scene below (where he presents Luke with a lightsabre) used to be smoking something like a hookah?  I'm sure of it.  Am I going crazy?  Take a look at this youtube clip which shows Ben not smoking.  Can someone help?

UPDATE:  A comment below from "Tony" said this:
Obi-Wan was originally supposed to be smoking his hookah, but the scene was changed during filming.

I found this description in the revised 4th draft of the Star Wars script, as of April 19, 1976. Just after Ben and Luke watch Artoo's message from Princess Leia in Ben's hovel...

"There is a little static and the transmission is cut short. Old Ben leans back and scratches his head. He silently puffs on a tarnished chrome water pipe. Luke has stars in his eyes."

Indiana Jones In The Valley Of The Jaguar, Awesome Art

I love this artwork.  Simple but so moody.  Indiana Jones is so iconic that just his silhouette evokes a sense of adventure.


Lucasfilm And Bonnie Burton Go Separate Ways

Bonnie Burton the Starwars.com editor and writer broke the news today that Lucasfilm have laid her off.  I normally have a non-negative feel to this website especially towards anything related to The Bearded Trio such as Lucasfilm and Star Wars but this decision by Lucasfilm just doesn't make sense.  The Starwars.com content and the twitter account were just perfect.  Bonnie's updates were informative and you could tell this was a passionate fan writing to passionate fans.  The Twitter account hasn't been updated since the fifth of May and I feel that this hasn't done any good to their account and reputation.  Why mess with something that isn't broken?  Star Wars on Twitter was so interactive with all its fans.  Considering how big Star Wars is, it still managed to tweet content from us bloggers and fans which would make you feel like you are part of the Star Wars universe.  I hope this aspect will continue but I am really puzzled by Lucasfilms decision.  I have al…
