Doctor Aphra Vol. 3 – Remastered Review

Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed the previous two Aphra books, ‘Remastered’ takes what we have loved about the series and upped the greatness to 11. Some time has passed and Aphra is now working for 000 who has taken over the Son-Tuul Crime Syndicate and is using Aphra’s expertise to locate his original memory disc. TheContinue reading “Doctor Aphra Vol. 3 – Remastered Review”

Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty Audiobook Review

Firstly, yes, it has taken me this long to get around to reading/listening to this book. I just never really got around to it, I got it on Kindle a while back but I sometimes struggle with E-Books, I prefer the actual thing than holding a device when I’m reading. But hey, we all haveContinue reading “Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty Audiobook Review”

#CollectionCorner – Poe Dameron’s X-Wing Starfighter (2020)

Another year, another X-Wing. It’s the fourth variation of the same ship since the first Force Friday back in 2015, which was the previous incarnation of Poe’s X-Wing (the black and orange one). When this was announced/leaked I was disappointed, the majority of the Winter 2020 Wave felt like a bunch of updates with veryContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Poe Dameron’s X-Wing Starfighter (2020)”

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. Like the relaunches of the ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Darth Vader’ titles, the new ‘Aphra’ series is set between ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Return of the Jedi’Continue reading “Doctor Aphra: Issue 1 – Fortune and Fate Part 1 The Rings of Vaace”

#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”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Obi-Wan’s Hut

Continuing the fantastic (unofficial) series of ‘home’ sets which started with ‘Ahch-To Training’ and followed by the latest version of ‘Yoda’s Hut’, we now have a new set based on ‘Obi-Wan’s Hut’ from ‘A New Hope’. The box contains two numbered bags and the instructions. There are no stickers included in the set, there onlyContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Obi-Wan’s Hut”

Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi Book Review

Written by Kevin Hearne, ‘Heir to the Jedi’ follows Luke Skywalker as he goes on a pair of missions for the Rebellion, firstly to Rodia where he is meant to set up a contact with some arms dealers, the second to rescue a Slicer who is working (under duress) for the Empire and reunite herContinue reading “Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi Book Review”

#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”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 10

And then it was built. After two months (of intermittent) building I completed this immeasurable Lego set. First up is the Conference Room where the Imperial leaders meet to discuss the missing plans as well as two of the dividing walls. The table doesn’t secure to the base but can be used as a storageContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 10”

#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’. This section is essentially the floor of the top section with a few added bits here and there. The first part is the floor that covers the Super WeaponContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 9”

#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”

#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. TheContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 7”

Star Wars: Issue 4 – The Destiny Path Part 4

Following on from the last issue, which, as I said in my review, felt like a set up for this issue (and I feel I was right to a degree), we find our heroes in respective spots of bother. Lando is locked in the core of Cloud City with Lobot who is hooked up toContinue reading “Star Wars: Issue 4 – The Destiny Path Part 4”

Darth Vader Issue 2 – Dark Heart of the Sith Part 2

Ben uses his Mind Invasion technique to stop Ren and the Knights from murdering innocent beings but they do it anyway. Once they reachContinue reading “Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren Issue 4”

#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?

This morning I woke up and found that The Brothers Brick had put put images for two of the three sets coming out in a couple of months. The Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts. First up is the Stormtrooper Helmet, and wow, does it look bad. The face looks too small, the ‘tube’ at theContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Star Wars Lego Busts a Bust?”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6

The Docking Bay has a hole inContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Sections 5 and 6”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4

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. Once I opened them all up and sorted the pieces into a somewhat ordered set of piles I realised why, this Section isn’t a huge constructionContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 4”

Star Wars: Issue 3 – The Destiny Path Part 3

Like TV Shows, sometimes you get an issue of a comics series that essentially acts as a way of setting something up, and this issue of Soule’s ‘Star Wars’ is just that. Luke, Leia and Lando head to Cloud City, each with their own agenda. Luke is searching for his lightsaber, Leia is investigating theContinue reading “Star Wars: Issue 3 – The Destiny Path Part 3”

Star Wars Vol. 9 – Hope Dies

Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts

‘Jedi: Fallen Order’ is a masterclass in what a single-player ‘Star Wars’ game should be. The story is well written and fits perfectly into existing canon and even expands on some of the established content we have had. Given the time the story is set, the obvious choice for a Dark Side villain would beContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts”

Star Wars Vol. 6 – Out Among The Stars

Jason Aaron finishes his run on Star Wars with a whisper, rather than a bang in this collection of one-shots following the main characters doing different things and essentially tying up one loose thread, and it was rather disappointing. The first part has Luke and Leia stranded on a planet until an Imperial entanglement givesContinue reading “Star Wars Vol. 6 – Out Among The Stars”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Death Star: Section 1

For years I had been after this set. No word of a lie, when it was released it went straight to the top of my wish list.
