Merry Christmas

Enjoy as much as you can your Christmas day.
This is probably the last post of the year, in a year of low posting. Hope 2009 will bring me more Star Wars, so I can justify this blog that raised in a will to show Star Wars fans cool stuff.
May the Force be with you, always!


Aproveitem ao máximo o dia de Natal.
Este será provavelmente o último post do ano, no ano que se mostrou pobre em posts. Espero que 2009 me traga mais Star Wars, para que se justifique este blogue que se ergueu duma vontade de mostrar aos fãs de Star Wars "cool stuff".
Que a Força esteja convosco, sempre!

Force Unleashed books

With such a great moment in the Star Wars history, it was a matter of time until we can grab ourselves a couple of good books for the journey. Big game demands good books. A comic book adaptation of the story and an art book. What more can I desire? Take a look at the preview from the Dark Horse TPB. The art is fabulous!


Com um momento tão importante na história de Star Wars, era uma questão de tempo até que pudéssemos deitar as mãos a alguns bons livros que acompanhassem a jornada. Grande jogo puxa bons livros. Uma adaptação da história para BD e um art book. Que mais poderia eu desejar? Dêem uma espreitadela ao preview disponibilizado pela Dark Horse. A arte é fabulosa!

Well, sometimes somethings you don´t expect end up happening... When Star Wars The Exhibition came to Lisbon in 2006, I wasn´t waiting to be busted by a couple of Troopers. Sometimes life is hard for a rebel...


Bem, por vezes certos acontecimentos ocorrer sem que estejamos à espera... Quando Star Wars The Exhibition veio até Lisboa em 2006, não estava nada à espera que uns quantos Troopers me fizessem prisioneiro. Às vezes a vida é árdua para um rebelde...

First they caught me...
Forced me to kneel...

Then they took me to their Master. Chocking is not a good thing...

Quizbook revisited - Some of the answers have grown over the years

What a difference a quarter-century makes. Earlier this week, with the help of the fan community, StarWars.com finally found Rusty Miller, the author who penned 1982's The Jedi Master's Quizbook: 425 Comics Questions & Answers About Star Wars & The Empire Strikes Back. He was 11 years old at the time, and the object of much fan envy and discussion. Come the Internet age, and he seemed to vanish.

Now, the book itself: as the years have added more and more Star Wars lore, it seems a bit quaint to look through a 1982 trivia book, especially one that contains its contents to just two movies. Here's a look at some of the simpler questions, and how 25 years of added Star Wars history have made for not-so-simple answers.

Q: Where was Princess Leia from?
A (1982): Alderaan
A (2008): Polis Massa is her place of birth, though she was raised in Aldera on Alderaan.

Q: What vehicle did Luke drive on Tatooine?
A (1982): A landspeeder
A (2008): A SoroSuub X-34 landspeeder, in addition to an Incom T-16 Skyhopper, and conceivably, a SoroSuub Courier V-35 landspeeder or a Mobquet SX-14 field hover-ute if required.

Q: What was Leia's starship called at the beginning of Star Wars?
A (1982): Blockade Runner
A (2008): It was originally christened the Star of Alderaan before having its name changed to the Tantive IV. Production referred to the vehicle as a "Rebel starfighter," a "Galactic Cruiser," and a "Rebel blockade runner" at various times throughout the making of Star Wars, while the term "Alderaan star cruiser" was also used during the making of Episode III.

Q: What were the names of Luke's two friends who had already entered the Academy?
A (1982): Biggs and Tank
A (2008): Biggs Darklighter and Janek Sunber.

Q: What made Vader's TIE fighter different from other fighters?
A (1982): It had (curved) or angular wings
A (2008): Vader's x1 prototype had a more robust spaceframe, particulary at the pylon points where the solar gather panels connect. The panels themselves are longer, and angled. Unlike the standard TIE of the line, the TIE x1 featured deflector shields and a limited class 4 hyperdrive. Its increased range gave the x1 five consumable days of non-combat flight time, as opposed to a TIE fighter's two-day yield. A standard TIE featured a pair of Sienar Fleet Systems L-s1 laser cannons, while the x1 had L-s9.3 cannons. Powering the standard TIE was an SFS I-a2b solar ionization reactor and SFS P-s4 twin ion engines, while the x1 featured the SFS 1-S3a and SFS P-s5.6 counterparts, respectively.

My special thanks to StarWars.com, for such an interesting newsletter. Cheers! May the Force be always with you!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the newest film that follows the Star Wars saga. Although it is an animated movie, quality and fidelity are much expected by fans. The film introduces a new character, Ahsoka Tano. Wanna guess who is going to be this Padawan´s Master? That´s right, Anakin Skywalker! Surprised? Don´t be. This new film has lots of new stuff and tons of action, broken robots, Jedi duels and a involving story. We just have to wait until August 15, when the movie will make its worldwide debut (worldwide... I hope...).


Star Wars: The Clone Wars é o mais recente filme que dá seguimento à saga Star Wars. Apesar de ser uma película animada, é esperado pelos fãs qualidade e fidelidade na mesma. O filme introduz uma nova personagem, Ahsoka Tano. Querem adivinha quem será o Mestre desta jovem Padawan? Esse mesmo, Anakin Skywalker! Surpreendidos? Não estejam. Este novo filme tem montes de novidades e toneladas de acção, robôs partidos, duelos de Jedis e uma estória envolvente. Só nos resta esperar até 15 de Agosto, data em que o filme estreará em todo o mundo (em todo o mundo... espero eu...).

What´s your Jedi name?


2007 was a great year for Star Wars. 30 years of existence... Uau!
Meanwhile, I decided to create this blog, mostly and simply because I´m a fan of the Star Wars universe. Just because of that.
I realized then, that it takes a great deal of time and some dedication, to be able to post whenever I can. Whenever is possible, I´ll use the Force to accomplish my posting task in this space, although I know that´ll be a hard one. So, to all the millions of fans spread around our great blue globe, I wish you a 2008 full of achievements and lots, tons, of Star Wars stuff in your life.

May the Force be with you!


2007 foi um ano importante para a saga Star Wars. 30 anos de existência... Uau!
Nos entretantos, decidi avançar para a criação deste blogue, principalmente e basicamente por ser um fã de todo este universo. Apenas por isso.
Percebi então, que é necessário despender bastante tempo e dedicação, para que seja possível fazer posts. Sempre que possível, farei uso da Força para colocar o maior número posts neste espaço, o que não será tarefa fácil. A todos os milhões de fãs espalhados pelo nosso grande globo azul, desejo-vos um 2008 cheio de realizações e montanhas, toneladas, de Star Wars na vossa vida.

Que a Força esteja convosco!
