The New Jedi Order: Dark Tide (Part 1) – Onslaught by Michael A. Stackpole

I’ve finally gotten around to reading this after finishing ‘Vector Prime‘ months ago.

#Collection Corner – 501st Legion Clone Troopers Lego

I held off on buying this for quite a while, originally feeling that there were plenty of other ‘Clone Wars’ vehicles we could have gotten instead of another AT-RT and a Speeder Bike, but sometimes those sets you don’t get excited for become a saving grace.

With ‘From A Certain Point of View: A New Hope’ firmly on my list of Star Wars books I’m really not all that keen on, ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ version gave me a bit of an internal debate.

Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn Book Review

I can’t imagine the excitement for fans in 1991 when this book was released after eight years since ‘Return of the Jedi’ has been released.

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.

#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar

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!

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.
