Droid Attack on the Coronet Hits TRU

Forum member combatJedi reports finding the new exclusive Droid Attack on the Coronet Battle Pack at a Toys”R”Us just yesterday – so might be a good idea to swing on by your local store to see if they have this in stock yet ($24.99).  Hopefully this set goes over well and gets Hasbro to make a new OT Probe Droid set as well (who doesn’t want that anyway?)!

Note – some of the latest Clone Wars figures have been sighted at Toys”R”Us this week as well via pallet displays in front of the Star Wars promo sections at the front of the store (Savage Opress, Seripas, Saesee Tiin)… as always, your mileage may vary.

Good luck!

Rykrof Enloe Photonovel Character Previews

Following The Enloe Chronicles photonovel series that concluded in late 2010, pre-work continues for the next series that launches in the OT era, The Enloe Trials.

While official previews are still several months out, we do have several more new custom characters to introduce, as well some new versions of established characters from the series.

UPDATE: Tragedy Strikes the Star Wars Community

We have some very sad news to share as a great friend in the Yakface community has passed away tragically.   Mike Martinez, also known around the customizing community as Mercury Art Studios, was killed in a car accident on July 2.

Mike was a moderator and active customizer in our forums, and a full time staff member at Echobasenews.com – he was also running a new customizing contest over there, which will still be completed – so if you have ever been into customizing, there would be no better tribute to a fellow collector than to enter a custom of your own into this contest that he worked so hard to put together here.

The good folks at Imperialshipyards.net are pitching in to help his family by collecting donations, and there has also been an outpouring of support and condolences on his Facebook page.

Above all, Mike was a great person and a devoted father.  He will be sorely missed and our prayers and thoughts are with his family and those closest to him.

UPDATE: If you wish to send a donation directly to Mike’s fiancee Hollie, here is the Paypal address with which to do so. totalsurvey8@windstream.net
