Baby Yoda arrives at the 2nd Avenue F stop

Artist Will Power finished his Baby Yoda mural yesterday at the Second Avenue F stop... Steven took these photos yesterday of the real star of the Disney+ series "The Mandalorian"...

This is the second Baby Yoda sighting in the East Village, joining the one put up for the Star Wars holiday windows at Two Boots on Avenue A.

As mentioned yesterday, Casey Neistat, Jesse Wellens and crew filmed around the East Village — and other parts of the city — for a "Return of the Jedi"-Speeder Bike Chase video for Halloween.

They released the video today ...

I have a bad feeling about this

[Photo yesterday by Bobby Williams]

For the past two days, Casey Neistat, Jesse Wellens and crew have been filming around the East Village (and elsewhere?) for a "Return of the Jedi"-Speeder Bike Chase video for Halloween.

In the past two days, they've been spotted on Third Street, Avenue A and First Avenue.

It's hard out here for a droid

Yet another child actor falls on hard times: R2 hocking bootleg DVDs and bottled water.

The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded

One last thing about corners on the Bowery... here at Bleecker, above Double Crown (these are older photos... they've gussied up the front since these were taken...)

For months I've been looking at that Star Wars pinball machine up on the second floor...

I walk by here a lot... and I've never seen anyone playing the damn thing...It just sits there, posing. A forgotten toy. Something to show off to the world below.

Then I realized the apartment is for sale (almost on the market for three months) ... and the pinball machine is there to -- possibly! -- lure in wealthy geeks...

It's listed at $2.6 million (the home, not the pinball machine):

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom, Private Keyed elevator and washer/dryer! This amazing loft at Bowery and Bleecker combines Landmark Status and Modern Luxury. Originally constructed in 1866 and now meticulously recrafted and enhanced, this full floor loft has 14’ floor to ceiling windows on both the North and East sides, with the finest modern interiors.

Features: 14’ ceilings, fabulous Poliform kitchens accented with Corian counter tops featuring Miele appliances, Sub Zero and Bosch technology. Each unit comes with a pre-wired sound system and 50” plasma TV, California Closets, PRIVATE key lock elevator and video security. You’ll enjoy amazing light & views, an inviting and totally livable layout, all in the epicenter of Downtowns most exciting neighborhood.

And not a word about the pinball machine in the pitch!

Here are some photos of the unit ... the two renderings are entertaining ...and the pinball machine makes an appearance here...

The last one is my favorite. Looks like a comfy position to read a book, dude...what, accidentally sit on one of the GF's stiletto heels?

Anyway, Star Wars pinball? Half-naked women in towels? I'm shocked this placed hasn't already been sold...

About that Obama/Luke Skywalker vs. McCain/Darth Vader video

Four weeks ago (Christ, where did October go?), I had a post on the Obama/Luke Skywalker vs. McCain/Darth Vader battle in front of the NYSE on Wall Street. It was obviously some pro-Obama propaganda. Sure enough, someone involved with the project sent along a note telling me that the final product was ready. So now you can watch the two light-saber battle (can this be a verb?) their way around some familiar NYC landmarks:

This is all fine. But, as an ethical journalist, I can't allow a pro-Obama bit to go by without hearing from the other candidate. I need to put my politics aside and be fair. So, in that spirit:
