New LEGO Art Turns to the Dark Side

Even if you aren’t an artist, self-made portraits of Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and Kylo Ren are within your grasp thanks to a new line of LEGO Art projects geared toward adult fans.

Using the interlocking tiles as a creative canvas for a new design, pop culture fans can pay homage to their favorite characters from the Star Wars galaxy by creating their very own LEGO artwork portrait to proudly display in their homes, offices or wherever they enjoy their music, film or art.

The LEGO Art sets offer a new creative experience to help you relax and recharge, transforming a blank canvas (or in this case, small interlinking base plates) using LEGO tiles. Each set can be reimagined in a number of different ways to express the personality

Empire at 40 | How Adam Gidwitz Reimagined Empire for So You Want to be a Jedi?

On May 21, 1980, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back made its theatrical debut. To celebrate the classic film’s landmark 40th anniversary, StarWars.com presents Empire at 40,” a special series of interviews, editorial features, and listicles.

As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the film that made Star Wars a franchise and launched a decades-long legacy, it’s only fitting that we honor the people who were involved in giving life to that film back in 1980. However, it would be a mistake to not also look back on the many incarnations that film has taken over the years.

Unsurprisingly, there have been numerous adaptations over the past four decades. There was the original novelization by Donald F. Glut, which was followed by several comic book (and manga) adaptations, a

Poll: Which Podracer is the Coolest – Anakin’s or Sebulba’s?

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace‘s podrace, in which beings from all over the galaxy compete in a death-defying competition on Tatooine, is among the most memorable action set pieces in the entire Skywalker saga. It’s not difficult to see why. The sequence is very fast, the stakes are high (if Anakin is victorious, he wins his freedom and Qui-Gon Jinn secures the parts to repair Queen Amidala’s ship), and the podracers are awesome. Two engines tethered to a cockpit, they’re vehicles built for speed and, to put it simply, look super cool. To mark the classic Star Wars Episode I: Racer‘s rerelease on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, we want to know: Which do you think is the coolest podracer — Anakin’s homemade, speedy yellow-and-blue vehicle? Or his rival Sebulba’s powerhouse, sleek
