Walmart’s upcoming ad for next week features a few items that will be available for Rogue Friday on September 30 including the Ahsoka wave of 3.75 inch Black Series figures.
We are sad to report that Daniel Fleetwood, the Star Wars fan who was diagnosed with cancer, has passed away. He was fortunate enough to have his wish granted as he was able to see a rough cut of The Force Awakens recently. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
UPDATE: A GoFundMe page has been established to help Daniel’s family with his associated medical costs. Please, donate what you can today.
Forum member EMPIRE has shared one of the most impressive works of Star Wars customizing that I have ever seen.
This custom spaceport playset was made for his kids (his very lucky kids!) and features numerous docking bays, restaurants, shops and everything you could ever dream of.
Check it out and leave him some feedback by clicking on the image above!
When toy runs are as dismal as they are lately, a lot of us naturally turn to customizing – and some even go the extra mile and create our own fan-fiction Star Wars photonovels – most of which can be read and commented by readers like you in our forums.
But sometimes there’s an older photonovel that appears to have been lost in cyberspace – for those of you who have been around for years in this hobby, remember the old stories by photonovel legends Dan Curto and Scott Corrales? Or the amazing Clone Wars storyline by SA Longhorn?
Those stories, and even the latest ones by various customizers can all be found on the greatest photonovel library of them all: The Photonovel Alliance.
TJ Maxx and Marshalls stores have been known from time to time to have some odd markdowns – at times clearancing some items, but leaving others (of the exact same SKU#) at full price.
Forum member darthapathy also recently came across some sporadic markdowns at his local TJ Maxx.
So keep your eyes peeled when at these discount stores – you never know what you may come across, or if it might be marked down cheaper than you think.
I’ve seen numerous collections over the years but few have made my jaw drop like Niktom’s – check out the amazing collection of the creator of the great Yak’s Pub comic strip after the jump!
