"Star Wars 1313" patent filed by LucasFilm

Though we're not yet sure what this thing is, we're very curious about it. A website calledFusiblefirst spotted the patent earlier today, and noted that it includes the use of video games as well as dozens of other categories. Including, but not limited to: sticker books, toy banks, and scooters (among dozens of others.)

The filing fits with a recent sightings of dozens of domain names being registered similar to "StarWars1313.com." We'll have to wait to find out just what in the world LucasFilm is up to, but so far there is one small hint.

In the expanded Star Wars universe, Boba Fett once used the alias CT-1313. So while, it's not likely we'll ever see games/films/scooters based on Boba Fett in disguise, this could be a codename of sorts. Boba Fett is long overdue to get a starring role in a game and/or film.
