My Star Wars Life Part 4 – Baited Breath

It was sometime in early 1998 when I came across the Star Wars Magazine (the UK version of SW Insider until recent years). As I was flicking through a couple of things caught my attention, 1 – a mini-guide to the last few levels of a game called Jedi Knight and 2 – on setContinue reading “My Star Wars Life Part 4 – Baited Breath”

My Star Wars Life Part 3 – 1997

Star Wars Special Editions were on the way. And so was more merchandise. I was never a big crisps eater. But when Walkers Crisps did their collectable Star Wars Tazos (like Pogs but not quite) I ate crisps like nothing else. I had almost the whole collection and I even had the special folder toContinue reading “My Star Wars Life Part 3 – 1997”

My Star Wars Life Part 2 – Expanding My Universe

And my first ever Star Wars toy was a C-3PO ‘Bendems’ figure. It came with a collectable Trading Card from Topps and I loved it. IContinue reading “My Star Wars Life Part 2 – Expanding My Universe”

My Star Wars Life Part 1 – The Journey Begins

I can’t remember the first time I saw a Star Wars film. Not the opening to a blog about Star Wars but it’s true. It was however sometime before 1993 when the Holy Trilogy was released Digitally Remastered but somewhere on the cusp of living memory. Bear with me on this one. At some pointContinue reading “My Star Wars Life Part 1 – The Journey Begins”
