Doug Chiang's Jedi



I've always loved how Doug Chiang depicted the Jedi his way in the concept art he produced for Episodes I & II, even after their look had been established as something much more tame.

Though I've never seen this painting labeled, my understanding is that the figure in the foreground is Obi-wan, and the figure in the background is either Dooku or Anakin. I like to think it's the latter, decked out in a black jumpsuit that foreshadows Luke's outfit in ROTJ. The remaining combatant is cropped out to the right.

BB-8



"And when they were demonstrating how they did this thing, live on set — because it’s not CGI, that’s a live prop — I was just amazed. They let me play around with it. [Laughs] I was running it all around at the creature shop up in Pinewood. I’m telling you, it’s an absolute delight." -Mark Hamill

Mario Kart 7



I'm always a generation behind. Everyone else is playing Mario Kart 8, but I'm just now hitting 100% completion on its 3DS predecessor.

Pictured is my favorite kart combo -- the brilliantly old-school 'Zucchini' kart with punishingly fast slick tires -- on one of my all time favorite tracks, Mario Kart 64's Kalimari Desert. Piloted by my Mii. This one has been a blast. I think I'm finally ready to move on to 8.
