#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. For the record, I was intrigued by the whole ‘Project Luminous’ idea. 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””

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. After all the vitriol that has spread through the fandom since ‘The Rise of Skywalker’, we are now getting spoiled by getting this fantastic novelisation. 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”

#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”

Jedi: Fallen Order – Some Thoughts

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

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.
