    By the way, there’s nothing NEW about that photo and it wasn’t leaked.

    It’s been sitting patiently on the still gallery of the 2004 Star Wars Trilogy DVD boxed set.

    If only I had a machine that could move me through time…

    Ah well, even if I did I’d still be me.

    I wonder what would happen if you went back in history and detoxed Marylin Monroe..

    Heh, this is the real thing. Cool!

    At first glance I figured it was Leia cosplayers catching some rays at Burning Man.

    After all these years…*shudder* Leia in that outfit still does it for me.

    And now we have this.

    Great, now nobody will get anything done for the rest of the day.

    Wow. With two suns and all, I hope they are wearing AT LEAST an SPF of 120.

  12. Cog says:

    Funny. I wonder if the stunt double HAD to catch some rays, to make sure they stayed a matching set?

    “Come on, stunt double. I’m going out to sunbathe… Then I’m going to eat six boxes of Twinkies. Hope you’re hungry.”

    Wonderful. This is like a Frazetta painting.

  14. Antinous / Moderator says:

    Based on the lobster color, it looks like the double started it.

  15. Glenn Fleishman says:

    I would totally put a poster of that on my wall today. My children might wonder, but I’d say, dudes, it’s awesome. One day, you, too, will know the power of the Force. The Force of bikini Leia.

    Couldn’t they have just caught rays from blasters?

    A million Star Wars geeks just made that their wallpaper.

    Presumably they have to sunbathe in unison so their tan-lines match.

    Those tubes are pumping Vodka directly into the bloodstream of Ms Fisher, I imagine.

    This only adds new possibilities to 10,000,000 teenage boys’ fantasies…. a threesome!

    Also makes me think of the classic line: “No, there is another.” and a stunt double!
