mark hamill beard

We’ve seen (and approved of) the older Luke Skywalker fan art, and it looks as though Mark Hamill will be sporting an even bushier beard in Star Wars VII if his appearance at the UK premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy is anything to go by. He’s right in the middle of filming at the moment, so this is likely a glimpse at his on-screen look.

The beard seems to support rumors that Luke will become something of a reclusive hermit in the new film much like Obi-Wan was.

her universe ghibli

During the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con, Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe revealed a new line of clothing featuring characters from Studio Ghibli! She teased the team-up on Instagram recently and confirmed it by donning a haute couture Totoro dress at the fashion show.

Models wore items from the new Ghibli including tank tops and a Totoro cosplay dress. The Studio Ghibli items will be available exclusively at Hot Topic beginning this holiday season, and there will be designs for both men and women. My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service will be the first titles in the collection, but others will follow.

UPDATE: A couple of photos of the collection from the fashion show are after the break…

bat cowl

There’s a 75th anniversary Batman exhibit at Comic-Con, and the cape and cowl that will be used in the upcoming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is on display.

It’s got this whole eyebrow thing going on, but it still looks pretty awesome. The lighting in the pics don’t really do it justice.

1a00_st_original_series_hoodie

ThinkGeek’s TNG Uniform hoodies were so popular that they are boldly going back to the original series for a new round of designs. From the product page:

Each Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodie is as perfect as we could make it – teaming up with the folks at CBS, of course. There are three styles (each with a specific Rank Braid). Here’s the rank breakdown: Command Gold is Captain, Sciences Blue is Commander, and Engineering Red is Lieutenant. No Lieutenants were harmed during the making of these Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodies… promise.

This full-zip hoodie is an officially-licensed Star Trek clothing item. It’s made of 60% cotton / 40% polyester. The colors are pieced together, not printed on. It has two front pockets and embroidered insignia and rank braid.

A release date for the hoodies hasn’t been announced, but they’ll be priced at $59.99.
