#Collection Corner – Rebels Pop! Vinyl Ghost Crew

When it was announced that we would be getting Star Wars: Rebels Pop! Vinyl figures I was ecstatic.

It was one of the few times I ever pre-orderedContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Rebels Pop! Vinyl Ghost Crew”

#Collection Corner – Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes Lego Review

The Saint has done it again. My wife was doing an online Tesco shop and asked if I wanted anything.

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Return of the Jedi

I finally got around to my Return of the Jedi rewatch and I realised how much I had missed this film. It’s so fun and exciting.

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Star Wars: Empire’s End (Aftermath Trilogy 3) by Chuck Wendig

The final part of Wendig’s Aftermath Trilogy, Empire’s End builds on everything established in the previous two books. The characters entire arcs come to very pleasing (to the readers) ends, some which we expect and others we don’t. Storylines come together, for the main characters and those featured in the Interludes, giving us a greaterContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Star Wars: Empire’s End (Aftermath Trilogy 3) by Chuck Wendig”

#Collection Corner – The Force Awakens Rey Black Series

As I stated in the #Collection Corner – SWCE Exclusive Unmasked Kylo Ren Black Series post, I don’t collect the ‘Black Series’ due to space and the fact that there are so many now I wouldn’t know where to even start, but I always thought that the Kylo Ren looked a bit lonely on theContinue reading “#Collection Corner – The Force Awakens Rey Black Series”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Star Wars: Aftermath (Aftermath Trilogy 1) by Chuck Wendig

#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review

My wife is a saint. I saw that the AT-Hauler Lego set from ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ had a decent price drop on Amazon and mentioned it in passing. The next day she asked me about it and ordered it. I started building it the day after that. It has spent the past threeContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Empire Strikes Back

If I could only watch one film for the rest of my life it would be The Empire Strikes Back. It was the first Star Wars film I ever watched and was in fact the last one I watched recently. As a kid I honestly believed that the AT-AT’s were real and Mark Hamill hadContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Empire Strikes Back”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Revenge of the Sith

The run up to Revenge of the Sith, for me, was fraught with anticipation. Through the first half of 2005 I was in full Star Wars mode. I bought absolutely everything I could. We had gotten the teaser in the November before and from then on that was it. Lucas had me and my moneyContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Revenge of the Sith”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Attack of the Clones

Full disclosure. This is not my favourite Star Wars film. In fact its my least favourite. But I still enjoy it. It’s just that sometimes I’ll struggle to watch it. Take my recent re-watch. I started it a couple of weeks ago. I watched about 45 minutes (around the Anakin/Padme picnic scene) the next timeContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – Attack of the Clones”

#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)

Thanks to the first wave of Solo: A Star Wars Story sets from Lego I can finally say after two-and-a-half years that I have an Imperial TIE Fighter set. Up until now I had a few TIE Variants. Vader’s TIE Advanced, the TIE Striker, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer and the First Order Special Forces TIEContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)”

#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder

I have been after set since it was released in April, so much so that I was willing to pay the full price of £25.99, which, if you have read previous #toytuesday posts, you will know that I try to buy sets reduced. But £26 for 345 pieces is nothing to scoff at based onContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder”

#Solo Sunday – Last Shot: A Solo Audiobook Review

As a recent convert to audiobooks when my Wife told me she had a spare credit on her Audible account I leapt at the chance to get ‘Last Shot’ by Daniel Jose Older, read by Marc Thompson, Daniel Jose Older and January LaVoy. I really want to say I loved this book. I really wantContinue reading “#Solo Sunday – Last Shot: A Solo Audiobook Review”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego AT-ST (Readers Choice Winner)

When the first wave of Rogue One sets were announced I did have to wonder why Lego were putting out an AT-ST set. When I saw the film I got it. One AT-ST in the Jedha street skirmish. The set has now been retired to make way for the updated First Order AT-ST from TheContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego AT-ST (Readers Choice Winner)”

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Vader’s Transformation

I’ll be honest, I was quite disappointed by this set. It was one that I wanted to get when it was announced. It looked cool and the selection of mini-figs was pretty good. Darth Vader, injured Anakin Skywalker and Darth Sidious. It even comes with two very screen accurate buildable medical droid figures. And £19.99Continue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Vader’s Transformation”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Clone Wars (2008)

Released in the Summer of 2008, after two of the best comic book films ever were released, The Clone Wars came and went with very little fan-fare. This was during my period of Star Wars apathy, so to speak and even though I kept reading about the animated series coming out I never jumped onContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Clone Wars (2008)”

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Carbon Freezing Chamber

I got this set as a gift for my Birthday in 2016. It was the first set from the Original Trilogy that I got and what more could I ask for, Boba Fett and Han Solo mini-figs, excellent. This set has now been retired but when it was released it was priced very reasonably atContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Carbon Freezing Chamber”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Phantom Menace

To put this one into context a little, I rewatched The Phantom Menace on 19th May. Nineteen years since it was released in the US and Canada. Us Brits had to wait until 16th July. Talk about painful. I still remember the first time I saw it at the cinema and when I got itContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Phantom Menace”

#Toy Tuesday – Lego Phantom II

Because I didn’t get into Lego until late 2015 I missed out on the initial wave of Rebels sets that came out, including The Ghost and Phantom I, which have both since been retired and cost a fortune on the secondary market, I’m eagerly waiting for a reissue or updated version of both sets. ButContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Lego Phantom II”

#Solo Sunday: The Spoiler-Filled Blog Series – Part 1

If you haven’t seen Solo: A Star Wars then this is NOT the blog post you are looking for and move along to one of the many great, spoiler free blog posts here. I’ve not been subtle about my live of the film, in fact my two Solo podcasts were just full of adoration, theContinue reading “#Solo Sunday: The Spoiler-Filled Blog Series – Part 1”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack

My first Solo: A Star Wars Story Lego set. OK it’s the Imperial Battle Pack releases for the film but I’m still pretty excited for it. It’s a Battle Pack so its not a big build and its main focus is the mini-figs. As usual there are four in the set. An Imperial Officer, anContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack”

Solo: A SPOILER FREE Review

If you have listened to my reaction podcast (It’s right here if you haven’t) then you know I loved the film, if you could discern that in between the gushing praise and wow’s. Solo: A Star Wars Story is a love letter to the fans. It’s full of references to stuff from the Prequel andContinue reading “Solo: A SPOILER FREE Review”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Millennium Falcon (2015)

This set is the one that dragged me back into the world of Star Wars Lego. The last set I had bought was in 2005, the Grievous Chase set with Obi-Wan on Boga and Grievous in his Wheel Bike. I had admired the Star Wars Lego from afar for ten years until I got theContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Millennium Falcon (2015)”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Luke’s Landspeeder (2017)

This set is quite special to me because of when I got it. Our daughter had just been born and my wife thought it would be nice to splurge a little bit, she bought herself some stuff and asked me what Lego I would like. So I gave her a list. The next day thisContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Luke’s Landspeeder (2017)”

#Toy Tuesday: The Maul Pop! Vinyls

So far, Funko have released two Pop! Vinyl Darth Maul figures. One from Phantom Menace and the other from Rebels. The Phantom Menace Maul was released early in the Star Wars range of Pop! Vinyls and is a nice looking figure in the usual hero pose that Funko adopted for the early Pop! figures. ItContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: The Maul Pop! Vinyls”

Every Tuesday I aim to write about/review a toy in my collection, be it Lego, Funko or a random action figure I will write about it.

Review: Star Wars From A Certain Point Of View

I have finally finished this book. It has been tough going. I loved the idea behind the book, retelling A New Hope from the perspectives of background or minor characters. 40 stories for 40 years of Star Wars, another great idea. In execution, not exactly my cup of tea. Overall, the Mos Eisley sequence goesContinue reading “Review: Star Wars From A Certain Point Of View”
