Skydance New Media's upcoming Star Wars game

Skydance New Media recently announced a collaboration with Lucasfilm Games to create a narrative-driven, action-adventure game featuring an original story set in the "Star Wars" galaxy. Award-winning writer and director Amy Hennig, a game-industry legend whose credits include the "Jak and Daxter" and "Uncharted" franchises, will be working on the game. As our friends at Cinelinx point out, this is a second chance for Henning to play in the "Star Wars" sandbox.

"Amy Hennig had previously joined EA/Visceral back in 2014 to work on a 'Star Wars' game (now known as 'Project Ragtag'). It's crazy, because that was pretty much the second game announced after the EA exclusive deal was revealed, and yet it never came to pass. Despite seeing a quick tech demo of the game, it struggled through development before ultimately being cancelled."

Luke Skywalker's Ultimate Landspeeder LEGO set recently revealed that Luke Skywalker's X-34 Landspeeder is joining the ranks of the LEGO Ultimate Collector Series. The 1,890-piece LEGO brick model features a new molded cockpit, a plaque with vehicle facts, and two minifigures: Luke Skywalker and an exclusive variant of C-3PO, with one gold and silver leg and new side printing to the arms and legs. The finished build measures 49 centimeters long!

The LEGO Luke Skywalker Landspeeder set is available for LEGO VIPs starting May 1, 2022, then on-sale on beginning May 4, 2022, at LEGO Stores and

'The first four releases include Wookiee, Ewok, Jawa, and Rodian, each with a vinyl head, large sparkling eyes, and super-soft body. Lucasfilm and Mattel wanted fans to really form a caretaker-like connection with their 'Galactic Pals' plush, so each youngling also includes a satchel — allowing kids to carry their plush wherever they go."
