Blessed be Doctor Aphra!

Force Collector by Kevin Shinick Book Review

Released as a part of ‘Journey to The Rise of Skywalker’ wave of books and comics, ‘Force Collector’ doesn’t really tie into the latest film at all. I have seen people mention that it would have felt more at home as a part of ‘Journey to The Force Awakens’, given how it follows in theContinue reading “Force Collector by Kevin Shinick Book Review”

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 2 – Legacy’s End

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Either I am suffering from over-hype when it comes to this series or my expectations are too high after hearing all the praise but I am really not enjoying this series at all so far. This volume covers two shorter stories, the first follows Vader tracking Jocasta Nu whoContinue reading “Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 2 – Legacy’s End”

Doctor Aphra: Issue 1 – Fortune and Fate Part 1 The Rings of Vaace

After a lengthy delay due to the COVID menace, we are finally able to get our (metaphorical) hands on the first issue of the new ‘Doctor Aphra’ series.

#CollectionCorner – My Lego Wish List

Since I returned to the Lego collecting at the end of 2015, there have been a handful of sets that I had wanted to see return, really so that I could get them at a more normal and much less inflated price, because that secondary market is a bit steep sometimes. This post really isContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – My Lego Wish List”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Sith TIE Fighter

I’m not going to lie, I was really pleased when we found out about the TIE Dagger in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’, the design was originally developed for ‘The Force Awakens’ and can be seen in ‘The Art of The Force Awakens’ book in a space battle with the Millennium Falcon and the fact thatContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Sith TIE Fighter”

My Top Star Wars Moments 4

 By the time the Finn/Kylo fight was over in ‘The Force Awakens’ I was on the edge of my seat, both excited and exhausted from the past almost two hours.

General Hux: Mistreated or Misunderstood?

Over the last couple of weeks I have rewatched the entire Star Wars Saga, and as I made my way from ‘The Force Awakens’ and into ‘The Last Jedi’ seeing the treatment of General Hux, something many fans have had an issue with. When we first met Hux in TFA, he was a snivelling weaselContinue reading “General Hux: Mistreated or Misunderstood?”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar

There is something about these ‘Duel on…’ sets that I just love. The ‘Starkiller Base’ one was so well done that as soon as I heard about one based on the Anakin/Obi-Wan duel I knew it was a sure-thing for the collection. Luckily, in this early part of the year I generally don’t have toContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar”

What Differences Should We Expect Between the High Republic Jedi and the Jedi of the Prequel Era?

Something I have been contemplating for a while, which I started thinking about more after we got the descriptions of the main ‘High Republic’ characters is what will the state of the Jedi Order be in comparison to the Order during the Prequel Era? We can already see the differences in the visual style ofContinue reading “What Differences Should We Expect Between the High Republic Jedi and the Jedi of the Prequel Era?”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 10

And then it was built. After two months (of intermittent) building I completed this immeasurable Lego set.

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 9

Here we go, the penultimate entry into the the Death Star build. I imagine this was how Krennic felt close to the events of ‘Rogue One’.

The first part is the floor that covers the Super WeaponContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 9”

My Pre-Prequels Head Canon

Watching the Original Trilogy in the early 90’s, there was very little information on what happened before. All we really knew was what Obi-Wan told Luke. The Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice. When Obi-Wan met Anakin he was already a great pilot, was strong in the Force and they were best friends.Continue reading “My Pre-Prequels Head Canon”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 8

Well, the Death Star weapon is now fully operational. If the construction of the super weapon went as easily as this then the Empire would have done more damage much quicker. The first part of the section is the base of the weapon, the middle is full of gears and rods. One side has aContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 8”

“The Jedi Knights of the Round Table”

If you weren’t intrigued by ‘Project Luminous’ before, hearing the concept of ‘the Jedi Knights of the Round Table’ certainly should have piqued your interest.

All of those great authors coming together for this grand project, then the rumours of ‘The High Republic’Continue reading ““The Jedi Knights of the Round Table””

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7

This section shocked me. Honestly, I sat down to start building and thought to myself, ‘Do one section tonight, will take about an hour.’ Wrong! Took two hours, which wouldn’t be a problem, but I started at about 11pm. So yeah, I was knackered the next day, thank the Maker it was a weekend.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Novelisation by Rae Carson (Spoiler Free) Review

Let me get this off my chest. We don’t deserve this book.

Now, as the title of this post states, this is a Spoiler Free review. By that I meanContinue reading “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Novelisation by Rae Carson (Spoiler Free) Review”

#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)

When this set was first announced late last year, I, and possibly many others thought this set would have something to do with ‘The Mandalorian’ series. But when the images were first released and I found out my hopes were not quite on the ball, I was not disappointed. Why? Because these mini-figs look amazing.Continue reading “#CollectionCorner – Mandalorian Battle Pack (2020)”

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine

I can’t believe that I’m about to say this. I found this book to be disappointing. I think, because I had heard so many great things about Charles Soule’s Vader series that I went in with very high expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it starts out amazingly in the first issue which is essentially VaderContinue reading “Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine”

When I fished out all of the bags for Section 4 I had a mild panic. There were only three bags as opposed to the usual (so far) four.
