R2-D2 quadcopter hits the San Diego skies

r2d2-flying-facebook

The skies over San Diego may be somewhat crowded this weekend, and not just because of all the folks flying in for the con. Everyone’s favorite World War I flying ace is being joined by R2-D2, courtesy of Flyguy Promotions.

Like the Snoopy one we featured earlier this week, R2-D2 is a remote controlled quadcopter created by Otto Dieffenbach. You can see more of his company’s creations on their website.

“Thought I’d add another iPhone video of flight tests on R2 as we approach Comic-Con,” Dieffenbach said on YouTube. “He is a very solid performer with no bad habits.” That does sound like R2-D2, though C3PO may disagree with the “no bad habits” part.

Check out a video of R2 in flight below:

Hasbro unveils first ‘The Force Awakens’ toy

tie-fighter-facebook

Twin Ion Engines — or TIE Fighters — will live on in the new Stars Wars movies, and on collectors’ shelves.

At Comic-Con International this week, Hasbro revealed the first toys in its upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy line, starting with a glimpse of what to expect from the movie’s villains: a brand-new, 26-inches tall, $170 TIE Fighter along with, naturally, its pilot.

The TIE Fighter is part of The Black Series, Hasbro’s high-end collectible Star Wars line. The TIE Fighter — which takes the familiar look of the spacecraft and adds some cool enhancements, like that touch of red — belongs to the “First Order” group, which was born from the ashes of the Galactic Empire after the Battle of Endor at the end of Return of the Jedi.

Earlier this week we learned that IDW Publishing has obtained the rights to publish comics based on the popular time-travel movie trilogy Back to the Future. Screenwriter Bob Gale, along with John Barber, Erik Burnham and a “rotating cast of artists,” will bring the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown to the printed page.

While the announcement on Wednesday mentioned “Batman ’66” artist Brent Schoonover and “Ghostbusters” penciller Dan Schoening are working on the project, it looks like that rotating cast of artists included Secret Identities artist Ilias Kyriazis at one point.
