NOTE: We failed to mention that TIME magazine followed up with Disney and they responded: “‘The current assortment of Star Wars products at the Disney Store launched earlier this year, and is just the beginning of what is to come,’ Disney spokeswoman Margita Thompson told TIME. ‘We’re excited to be rolling out new products in the coming months, including several items that will feature Princess Leia, one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars galaxy.'”

Quote

Ash: You still don’t understand what you’re dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

Lambert: You admire it.

Ash: I admire its purity. A survivor… unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

Regina & Rhonda

P.S. Don’t forget to enter our Xbox Live Gold giveaway!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. Love the opening comment! I almost imagined Rhonda's decapitated headed, covered in android goo, saying those immortal words. =)

    Glad you liked IGN's reaction video!

    Oooh, i so want one of those game console candy holders!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the opening, Kaarlo! We have so much fun with these!
    Funny story – Ryan, our editor, also had the candy arcade machine. The Pac-Man one. It's a small geeky world. 😉
