Hey Star Wars Geeks, here’s your latest news from that galaxy far, far away.
Legoland theme park in Florida will be opening a section dedicated to Star Wars. It will feature life-sized minifigs and many other AWESOME LEGO Star Wars paraphernalia. Please let them add a Superhero and Lord of the Rings section. Then I will move there…into the park. Here’s a little blurb:
WINTER HAVEN (AP) – Legoland Florida says it will expand to add an interactive “Star Wars”-themed area in November. The central Florida theme park made the announcement Thursday. Star Wars Miniland will include Lego scenes from six-movie series of films as well as the animated “Clone Wars” television series. The section will follow a chronological path through the “Star Wars” timeline. Some of the 2,000 Lego models will be more than 6 feet high. Visitors will be able to activate animations throughout the scenes using interactive buttons. Legoland Florida is based on the building-block toys and has rides and attractions geared toward ages 2 to 12. Since opening in October 2011, the park has added a water park and hotels.

Lastly, Bioware’s mega-hit, Star Wars: The Old Republic is going free to play, of course if you play for free you don’t get all the cool stuff:
Star Wars: The Old Republic will add a free-to-play option this October. Those who opt to play for free will have access to all the story content for all eight classes, and will be able to level a character all the way up to the current cap of 50. Some content will be restricted, though, and will only be attainable through paying a monthly subscription fee of $14.99 or using an upcoming in-game currency called “Cartel Coins” to make purchases.
Starting next Sunday we will be replacing Stop-Motion Sundays with Star Wars Sundays, so look forward to a day filled with scum and villainy from your favorite galaxy far, far away!
Stay tooned 😛
