    Mabuhay! If anyone around here is from the Philippines, make your voices heard, and let's start mobilizing! It's high time we try to establish our own Fanforce chapter! Hope to get some feedback from fellow countrymen. It would be fun! ;o)

    You need more than 2 people to get it going! ;)

    Not bad, actually. People have just gotten over Spiderman and everyone is pretty much excited over Episode 2. Lots of fans here,a ctually...I just hope they got the patience to post here. WE guys have yahoogroups though, courtesy of Ginny over there, but we thought we should make the fan club official.

    Hmm..where are they...?

    You know what you guys can do to attract more people to here and create a Philippines Fanforce? Printout the address of this board as address labels or name cards and distribute to those people whom you meet at the AOTC Screening (and very interested in SW too!) :)

    Me and friends managed to drag some along into our side by telling them about the boards etc. :p

    Good luck! ;)

    Hmm..curious.

    I heard that Dooku's saber handle was inspired by a number of Filipino swords. Check out Dooku's databank in starwars.com

    We did it again! Heheheh.

    Really? In which part of the databank does it say that, exactly? Thanks for the heads-up!

    Say, according to Rudy back at the group, there's a Fil-Am actor in AOTC. Which character does he play?

    "The shape of Dooku's lightsaber, with its arabesque curved handle, came out of earlier exploration of Sith villains. Art Department Assistant Roel Robles brought in a number of Filipino swords, knives and spears to provide inspiration for weapon-shapes. One particular sword, a barong, had a curved handle that provided a firmer grip for the combatant."


    Interesting. It is also interesting to note as a sidebar that Filipino sword-fighting revolves around the escrima and arnis styles, but Dooku incorporates fencing. And we actually see the handle lending itself well to Dooku's style.


    We're still waiting for more FanForce members!!!

    By golly gee! I'm assuming that Art Department Assistant is a Filipino? Whatcha think? Maybe we should drop the guy a line saying how proud we are of his work with the movie, promoting some Pinoy culture and all. IF he is Filipino, that is. Whatcha think, Stomp?

    Welcome, friend! Gather more Starwoids for our cause!!!

    Ginny..we better track that Robles guy down. The guy did a good job...along with the rest of the Art Dept, of course. Man..creating the first known curved-handle lightsaber in Star Wars is something. Elegant, and interesting at the same time. :)
