UPDATE: RIP Daniel Fleetwood


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.

The Photonovel Alliance Updates


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 Markdowns


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.
