The Guatemalan Star Wars Fan Club writes in with a special request for the fan community:

Hi Guys! Today The Guatemalan Star Wars Fan Club "Yavin IV" is calling out to all Star Wars fans to help us make Tikal National Park (Yavin IV and home to the Rebels secret base in A New Hope) the 8th World Wonder according to the Virtual Tourist website. You can cast you vote once a day in the following link: http://www.virtualtourist.com/8thwonder. Tikal is the first option in the 7th row from the bottom up. Thanks for your help and may the Force be with you!

Do your part and keep voting for Tikal National Park to help get this amazing Star Wars filming location into the top spot. You may remember this story from our own Shane Turgeon who visited these ruins in 2011 with a small group of fans and the legendary model maker Lorne Peterson.

I'm more about Episode VIII than anything else right now...
