At this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V festivities, George Lucas presented The Daily Show host Jon Stewart with a gift that will be the envy of nerds everywhere: a one-of-a-kind stormtrooper action figure modeled after the comedian, complete with two interchangeable heads.  One head features Stewart’s recently-departed goatee, “Beardy”.  Don’t bother trying to tell yourself you’re not insanely jealous of Jon Stewart because it won’t work.  Trust me.  Hit the jump for pictures of the action figure and video of Stewart’s hour long interview with Lucas where he asks a lot of fan submitted questions.

Here are the pictures, scroll down for the interview.  And if you missed the announcement that the Star Wars movies are finally hitting Blu-ray in the fall of 2011, you can read all about it here.

UPDATE: Lucasfilm has pulled the interview. Sorry if you missed it.
