Here's The Major Inconsistency About This New Droid From The Last Jedi Here's The Major Inconsistency About This New Droid From The Last Jedi

Fictional droid related news and analysis is an important part of my job, so I was very pleased to learn that a new astromech droid was revealed (well, via toys) as part of the upcoming installment of the little-known laser-cutting-device enthusiast movie series, Star Wars. And if some of the old basic Star Wars…

So today is May 4th, which is Star Wars Day, which is nice because Star Wars doesn’t get much attention. So, in honor of this important day, I want to address something that’s been gnawing at me for years. A strange detail, an obvious mistake hidden in plain sight for years and years, mocking me. Something that makes…

We Need To Talk About Star Wars Droid Names Right Goddamn Now We Need To Talk About Star Wars Droid Names Right Goddamn Now

Alright, look, everybody, shut up, shut up. This is important. I realized something big yesterday. BIG big. About Star Wars, and droids, and how painfully misguided so many people are. Yesterday, when I posted about Rogue One’s new astromech droid, C2-B5, it became clear how misguided people are about droid names.…

Getting you the latest news about Droids That Don’t Actually Exist In Reality is an important job, and I have a very important update: another droid from Rogue One has been revealed, and this one is an astromech!

This Is The First Positive Identification Of A Known Droid In The Rogue One Trailer This Is The First Positive Identification Of A Known Droid In The Rogue One Trailer

As far as I’m concerned the entire Star Wars series is basically an elaborate vehicle to showcase a whole bunch of robots. Rogue One is no exception, though the droids do seem to be a bit less prominent in this trailer than has been the case for past movies. Even so, I’m still happy to announce there’s at least one…

I have to start off with an apology: I was wrong. Wrong in the worst possible way, too: I misidentified a tiny image of a droid in a Star Wars movie. I hope I don’t have to offer my resignation, but I do understand. I would like, however, a chance to fix things. I have a theory, you see. About a droid.

If you’re one of the small population of Americans currently in comas or encased in metal vaults, you may not have yet seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, if you want to avoid spoilers, consider yourself warned. Though, to be fair, this particular spoiler is such a painfully geeky detail no one would possibly care.…

Sphero BB-8 Review: This Is the Coolest Star Wars Toy Ever Sphero BB-8 Review: This Is the Coolest Star Wars Toy Ever

For the past 38 years there hasn’t been a robot more loved by fans than Star Wars’ R2-D2. But that could all soon change when The Force Awakens hits theaters, especially now that anyone can own a tiny working version of the movie’s BB-8 droid that can roll and balance all by itself.

The New Star Wars Droid Is Not CGI — So How Does It Work? The New Star Wars Droid Is Not CGI — So How Does It Work?

For a droid enthusiast like myself, one of the best parts of the new Star Wars trailers has been the new little astromech droid, the ball-like BB-8. I’ve speculated about how that design could work before, but in the context of fiction. Now we know they actually built one. So, how did those kooky Imagineers do it?
