A Tickle-Me Chewbacca doll? Maybe Not

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Sep 1, 2010 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars

Talking Chewbacca Plush

You shouldn’t be tickling a Wookie any way — what do you take them for, Ewoks?  This 9 inch Chewbacca plush kind of looks like it could be a Tickle-Me-Elmo, though. Either that, or one of those clowns in an arcade shooting gallery. You know which ones I’m talking about, I’m sure. All kidding aside though, it’d probably make a much cooler gift for any nephew or son than an Elmo doll. It even roars — or does its bear gargle, if you will  — when you push on his belly. I’d take that over Elmo’s annoying laughter any day, wouldn’t you? They retail for roughly $26, so if you’re looking to pick one up, head over to and even though you’re not ordering it through the official Star Wars online store, don’t fret, it is an officially licensed Star Wars product.

David Lynch on Turning Down Return of the Jedi

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 9, 2009 in Cinema, Star Wars

Lynch gives us an interesting insight which is that Lucas doesn’t like to direct his own films. Not mentioned in this clip is that Lucas was a huge fan of Eraserhead which came out in 1977. Of course Lynch would go on to tackle science fiction with the film Dune in 1984 — and while the film had his vision was part of that film it didn’t do too well at the box office.
