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.

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.

#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.

Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts

‘Jedi: Fallen Order’ is a masterclass in what a single-player ‘Star Wars’ game should be.
