Young Fan in Need

The folks over at Action Figure Empire are spreading the word about a young Star Wars collector in need.

Eli has been diagnosed with a rare life-threatening disease called Severe Aplastic Anemia, which is a disease of the bone marrow. They are helping to lift his spirits by donating Star Wars toys to this little guy. If you’d like more information on how you can donate a Star Wars toy, please click here.

For those ever interested in becoming a marrow donor, more information can be found here.

Special thanks to forumite DarthDaddy for bringing this to our attention.

Countdown to Toy Fair 2011

It’s that time of year again! The annual American International Toy Fair kicks off tomorrow and we’ll be on the floor to provide you the latest news from many of the Star Wars license holders so watch for updates here and on facebook. Surprisingly, there have been relatively few product leaks so hopefully that bodes well for this being a great show!

This year we’ve revamped our photo galleries with a new interface so you be able to view all of the photos more easily. You can also go back and review our coverage of Toy Fair 2010, SDCC 2010 and Celebration V if you are so inclined.

A huge thanks to our very own Mark Minicuci for making the trek again this year to the big apple.

Yakface and JTA Team Up for Special RDR

We have teamed up with Jedi Temple Archives to provide a guest review for their ongoing Research Droids Reviews series. For our contribution, I take a look at The Saga Collection’s R4-M6 (Mace Windu’s Astromech Droid) to see how it fits into the modern era’s grand scheme of collecting. Head on over to see if you think this astromech worth tracking down if you missed it back in 2007.

A huge thanks to JTA for their generous invitation.
