Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives have posted their first (of many) supplemental articles to their popular 2011: It’s Down To Seven special report. Give it a read and be on the lookout for additional supplements to be added throughout the year from fan site contributors all around the web!
As you may (or may not) have seen, we’ve been teasing a giveaway on Facebook and in our forums for a few days now for a set of wave 6 Vintage Collection figures. We are going to be having an “Ultimate Galactic Hunt” of sorts where we will be posting a set of 10 “clues” in our forums and the first forum member* to post all ten correct answers will win! This contest will be open to forum members from all over the world, but those residing outside of the U.S. will be responsible for shipping charges.
Be sure to come back Monday morning for the official kick off!
*Winner must be a registered Yakface forum member before March 28, 2011 and can not have won a Yakface sponsored contest/giveaway in the past 12 months.
UPDATE: Congrats to forum member Ken Durham aka “r1g4r3po” as he posted all 10 answers correctly.
