Some interesting tidbits were released yesterday at Comic-Con…Star Wars In Concert will begin touring October 1st (tickets on sale August 1st) and will be narrated in person by Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), although it looks like dates only through Oct. 21st are known so far, on the west coast and OK; lots of info at the Lucasfilm booth about the upcoming games Star Wars: The Old Republic (a new MMO where you can be on the Republic or Sith Empire sides), The Cone Wars: Republic Heroes, available for PC and all consoles on either September 15th or October 6th (information conflicts right now); and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition out in time for the holidays. Also, Novermber 3rd should see the release of the Season 1 Box Set of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Just a head’s up – BBC America, starting at 1:00pm ET, will be repeating Torchwood: Children Of Earth, starting with the “Inside The Hub” preview but without the “Inside Look” shorts. After that, at 8:00pm, the U.S. premiere of Doctor Who: Planet Of The Dead. I’m puzzled that SyFy has passed or at least is delaying the maxi-episodes, letting BBC America air them first, along with the DVD/Blu-ray release a couple of days later. If you don’t have BBC America, you can get Children of Earth on DVD/Blu-ray as well Tuesday.
Waiting for a good time to buy that classic show on DVD, or just some excuse? Perhaps the time is now. Through July 31st Amazon is currently having a Sci Fi Extravaganza, with prices up to 56% off! I’m already picking up a few items missing from my collections…
