on-station-at-celebrationFor all of those who couldn’t make it to Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando this year, we here at Roqoo Depot have taken it upon ourselves to send one of our Ewok commandos to the frontlines for on-the-scene reporting.

Aside from news tweets, each day we’ll be posting a recap of all the activities we could squeeze an Ewok into. So kick back, relax, and let us do all the hard work for you.

Catching Fire Now Has A Finnick Odair: Sam Claflin

News broke today that Sam Claflin has been cast as the handsome, cocky past champion Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The casting has been arguably the most anticipated one by fans, as the character of Finnick not only plays a big role as Katniss Everdeen’s ally in Catching Fire, but is a major player in Mockingjay as well.

Sam Claflin has recently starred in box office successes- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as Philip Swift, and Snow White and the Huntsman as Prince William. Claflin has been the front runner for Finnick since mid-July, and personally I’m very excited about this news.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due out in theatres November 22nd, 2013.

It’s time for another journey into Ewok Fantasies, this time down the road of the publishing industry. Right now bundling is still a popular fad among utility companies. Many households save money by taking advantage of bundling services to save money or for just added convenience.

New Releases: ‘The Republic Goes to War’ and ‘Ghost Prison #4’

August 22, 2012 at 12:01 am | Posted in Comic Books, Dark Horse | Leave a comment

Two new Star Wars releases from Dark Horse Comics today: Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #4 and Clone Wars Volume 1: The Republic Goes to War Omnibus.

Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison #4

It’s Vader versus the most dangerous inmates the Ghost Prison has to offer, and Cadet Tohm witnesses the Dark Lord at his fiercest—and most merciless. The lesson is not lost on the young man, and Tohm follows Vader’s lead, finding strength—and darkness—he never knew he possessed. He is well on his way to becoming the kind of officer for which the Empire will become known. But the biggest test still lies ahead—retaking the Imperial Palace from the insurgents. Today a fight . . . tomorrow a war!

Writer: Haden Blackman
Artist: Agustin Alessio
